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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The Absolute doesn’t know that ‘It is’, only when the knowledge ‘I am’ spontaneously appeared it knew ‘It is’.

There is no question of there being any experience in the Absolute or the ‘Parabrahman’. All experiences demand the necessity of duality in the form of the experiencer (subject) and the experienced (object). The Absolute is a non-dual state, so who is to experience what? Moreover the Absolute, does not require any experience or the need to know that ‘it is’. By the spontaneous appearance of the knowledge ‘I am’ it came to know that ‘it is’, yet it doesn’t require the ‘I am’ at all for it is complete in itself, devoid of any wants.
