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

<< previous quote     next quote >>
A true devotee, by abiding in the knowledge ‘I am’, transcends the experience of death and attains immortality.

Who is a true devotee? The one who not only understands the ‘I am’ but also abides in it, without swerving from it for even a moment for a prolonged period of time. He and only he, who has done this ‘Sadhana’ (practice) with complete devotion is a true devotee. A moment of ripening is bound to come and he would transcend the ‘I am’, then he would know no death and would attain immortality. It must be understood that it is the ‘I am’ that is born and dies, you are the Absolute, apart from the ‘I am’ and know none of these.
