THE NISARGADATTA GITA BY PRADEEP APTE

by Pradeep Apte

Dedicated to the Great Master

Sri Ramana Maharshi

35. When you know both the ‘I am’ and

the ‘I am not’ then you are the Absolute

which transcends both knowingness and

not-knowingness.

As you abide in the ‘I am’ for a longer time you shall also realize the state of ‘I am not’ or there will be a state of ‘knowing’ and ‘not-knowing’.
Both these states are states of consciousness in its purity; they are the very beginnings of duality. The very arrival of the concept ‘I am’ implies the ‘I am not’ hidden in it or ‘knowing’ has ‘not-knowing’ implied in it, they are opposites, they are pairs and always go together and are impossible to separate.
But you are the Absolute which transcends both of them; you are a witness to both these states, they have only appeared on you, they never belonged to you and are illusory.
