Nisargadatta Gita - Message of Nisargadatta Maharaj
with commentary by 'Pradeep Apte'


<< previous quote     next quote >>
Only the I am is certain, its impersonal, all knowledge stems from it, its the root, hold on to it and let all else go.

Right from the day you came know that you are to this day you still know that you are. All add-ons have come and gone are transient but the fundamental I am has remained unchanged and is the only certainty. This I am is impersonal, its common to everybody and wordless, the moment you came know that you are you did not know any words or language, which came later. Based on this non-verbal I am you could later on say verbally I am in whatever language you were taught. From this small minuscule I am further knowledge grew leaps and bounds to gigantic proportions. So all knowledge stems from the I am, it is very fundamental, the base, the origin, the root of everything. You have to hold on to this I am and let everything else go.
