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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
Your true identity – The Absolute – is prior to the ‘I am’. How can you provide a uniform to it?

The uniform or garb that we have provided to our true identity is that of the body with all its senses, and of the mind in the form of concepts. The primary concept is the ‘I am’ which has no name or form and has just spontaneously appeared on your true being. You true identity, the Absolute or ‘Parabrahman’ is prior to the ‘I am’ so how can any uniform or garb be provided to it.
