The Nisargadatta Gita Book

by Pradeep Apte


Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

55. 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 go back.

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 go back and abide in the ‘I am’ and transcend it forever and be happy.
