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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
The I am happened and the world was cooked up. Prior to that you did not have the message I am, you existed, but you did not know.

The I am is the beginning and the end of everything, it was with the appearance the I am that this whole manifestation came into being. They are just two small words but see what havoc they have cooked up in the form of this world. And the way the I am has done all this is indeed astonishing, for never a moment you believe that it is all false and actually never came into being! You, the Absolute are always there, I am or no I am, by the appearance of the I am you only know that you are.
