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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
When you dwell in destiny as ‘I am’, you realize that it is not your death, but the disappearance of ‘I amness’.

The Guru is revealing a secret that is of such a tremendous importance, that only an advanced seeker, who has spent a considerable amount time pondering over his teachings, can grasp its true value. He is saying: your destiny is not death but the disappearance of ‘I am’! This realization can only come to someone who has transcended the ‘I am’ and realized his true identity as the Absolute or the ‘Parabrahman’. The ‘I am’ that had appeared on him (which we mistakenly believe as birth) has now disappeared (which we mistakenly believe as death), that’s all, he has nothing to do with it as he never was the ‘I am’, he is, he was, and would be for ever.
