DEDICATED TO THE GREAT MASTER

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

53. You feel the ‘I am’ due to the five

elements and three qualities, when they

are gone, the ‘I am’ goes, but you are

still there.

 

This feeling that ‘you are’ or ‘I am’ is due to the body-mind, which is a composite of the five elements and the three qualities. The body, along with the elements and the qualities, is perishable, thus you can see that all these, the ‘I am’, the elements and the qualities are interdependent and destructible. Judging from this criteria how can all these be real? The Truth or the real is never dependent nor is it destructible and that is what you are. The body, the elements and the qualities may come and go but you are there forever because you are none of these.
