The Nisargadatta Gita Book

by Pradeep Apte

DEDICATED TO THE GREAT MASTER

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

61. Inquire into the validity of the

fundamental concept of your

individuality, the ‘I am’, and it will

disappear, then you are Parabrahman,

the Absolute.

 

If what you believe yourself to be at present is false, what is the means to be adopted in order to realize your true identity? Self-inquiry is the means that the Guru suggests; you have to inquire into the question: ‘Who am I?’ As you do so you come to the fundamental concept of ‘beingness’ or the ‘I am’ on which rests everything. You are now told to meditate on this ‘I am’, stay here, abide in it for a reasonable amount of time. As your ‘Sadhana’ (practice) matures, a day will come when the ‘I am’ will disappear and then you are Absolute. Through negation you assert your true being, try to perceive the affirmation hidden in the negation of ‘I am’.
