Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
The interval between the beginning of ‘I am’ (birth or waking) and until you lose it again (death or deep sleep) is called ‘time’.

This whole concept of time is based on the appearance and disappearance of the ‘I am’. The arrival and departure of the ‘I am’ from birth to death is called a life-time, while that from waking up to falling asleep a day-time. Accordingly you say ‘his life-time has come to an end’ or ‘It is the end of the day’. The ‘I am’ linked up with memory maintains a continuity throughout your life.
