Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Presently whatever you know is the I am which is a product of the five elements, three qualities or the food body, but you are none of these.

The I am emanates from the five elements and three qualities that make up the body-mind which can also be called as the food body. It is the food that sustains the body using the vital breath. The I am is the very essence of the food body which is a composite of the elements and qualities. Since this is all but an assembly that will disintegrate one day, it is dependant and transient and hence disqualifies as the real or truth. But to understand the unreality of all this, especially the I am, you have to meditate on it, then you will know that you are none of these. In fact you were never any of these; it was the deceptive game of I am that made you believe what you are not.
