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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
This knowledge I am has come out of the state prior to it and now is the cause of all suffering, before the I am came you were happy, so revert.

If you are sensitive and observant enough you can very clearly discern that this knowledge I am has arisen on the state prior to it. This sense of being, knowing that you are or I am has just spontaneously appeared and has become the cause of all suffering. You have experienced those states like the period from conception to the appearance of I am or in deep sleep where the I am lies dormant or is held in abeyance. During any of these states was there any suffering or worry? The Guru has made all this clear to you and now tells you to revert and abide in the I am and transcend it forever and be happy.
