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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
Who would have witnessed the message ‘I am’, if your prior state of non-beingness were not there?

The very answer to such a question, if asked with a deep intensity, can land you into the Absolute state instantly. Prolonged meditation on the ‘I am’ with complete earnestness holds the potential for such an occurrence. Even if you cannot experience this actually, through pure verbal understanding you can see that there has to be ‘someone’ that witnesses or knows the ‘I am’ otherwise the ‘I am’ would have never come to be. Meditation on the ‘I am’, which is the ‘Sadhana’ (practice), holds the key to know and become that ‘someone’.
