The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 10

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte

10. Immortality is freedom from the
feeling I am, to have that freedom
remain in the sense I am, its simple,
its crude, yet it works!

 The feeling I am is dormant at birth, it appears
 spontaneously say around the age of three. It is the
essence of the five elements that make up the body
 or the food body.

The body is a limitation, and as long as the I am
  identifies itself with the body there is no chance of
  freedom, and death is certain.

Eternity or immortality is possible only when you
  are free from the I am.

 For this freedom to accrue you have to be after the I am,
 understand it, abide in it and transcend it.

  Judging from the enormous amount of spiritual literature available,
  the understanding, abidance and transcendence of the I am appears
  to be too simple and crude a Sadhana or practice, yet it works!
