Nisargadatta Gita << previous quote     next quote >>
Prior to the appearance of form in the womb, the food stuffs take the form I am and that appears in nine months.

As said earlier the I am is distributed everywhere in nature, the food stuffs that the food-body consumes also contains the I am which move on to the male or female gametes. The process of conception is the perpetuation of the I am in the fetus. From birth till the age of three or so the I am remains dormant and then spontaneously surfaces. So it the I am that appears and disappears which we take as birth and death.
