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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The essential thing to be convinced about is that the original concept I am is false, only accept that which is conducive to this development.

The knowledge I am came quite suddenly on to you, you had never asked for it and it remained as such for some time. Gradual worldly conditioning established it as a firm concept that you are now not ready to part with or disbelieve. But the whole key to your redemption lies in realizing that this original concept I am is totally false and is the culprit that has deceived you. Do away with and do not accept anything that does not go with your developing the conviction that the I am is illusory.
