Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
With the transcendence of the knowledge ‘I am’, the Absolute prevails. The state is called Parabrahman, while the knowledge ‘I am’ is Brahman.

It is very important to understand that the knowledge ‘I am’ is Brahman. When you transcend the ‘I am’ you transcend the Brahma state and prevail as the Parabrahman or Absolute. The Brahman is both, with qualities (‘Saguna’ Brahman) and without qualities (‘Nirguna’ Brahman). With qualities it is the manifest world and without qualities it is the unmanifest world. The ‘I am’ and ‘I am not’, the ‘knowing’ and ‘not-knowing’, the ‘being’ and ‘non-being’ are all the same. They have only been differently called by different terms, the Absolute or Parabrahman state transcends both as there is no duality or opposites there.
