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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
If you were to dwell in the ‘I am’ and firmly abide in it, all external things will lose their grip on you.

All externality has a very strong hold over you, to the extent that there are very few to whom it would at all occur that it all could be false. It is only in those, in whom this nameless urge for the eternal and infinite awakens, that the quest and questioning begins. If such a seeker is fortunate enough, he will come across a genuine Guru who would put an end to his quest. To do away with all external things, the Guru makes him understand the importance of the knowledge ‘I am’ without words. Then he tells him to firmly abide in the ‘I am’, which is the ‘Sadhana’ (practice) to be undertaken. If the seeker correctly understands the teaching and follows the advice of the Guru, he is bound to succeed.
