THE NISARGADATTA GITA BY PRADEEP APTE

4. Only the ‘I am’ is certain, it’s

impersonal, all knowledge stems from it,

it’s the root, hold on to

it and let all else

go.

Right from the day you came know that ‘you are’ to
this day you still know that ‘you are’. All add-ons
have come and gone. They are transient but the
fundamental ‘I am’ has remained unchanged and is
the only certainty. This ‘I am’ is impersonal, it’s
common to everybody and wordless, the moment
you came know that ‘you are’ you did not know
any words or language, which came later. Based
on this non-verbal ‘I am’ you could later on say
verbally ‘I am’ in whatever language you were
taught. From this tiny, minuscule ‘I am’ further
knowledge grew leaps and bounds to gigantic
proportions. So all knowledge stems from the ‘I
am’, it is absolutely fundamental, the base, the
origin, the root of everything. You have to hold on
to this ‘I am’ and let everything else go.
