The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 17

read by James Traverse





The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte
 

 17. The beginning and the end of knowledge
 is the I am, be attentive to the I am, once
 you understand it, you are apart from it.

Whatever the volume of knowledge maybe it has to
 begin with the primary knowledge or concept I am.

  The I am is the one, and then with two, three, four
 and so forth the structural labyrinth of knowledge builds.

You have to go back, retrace the steps in the maze
 and when you do so correctly you will end up at the I am.

 Give all your attention to this I am, by and by you
  shall come to understand it and all its implications as well.

 The clearer your understanding of the I am is, the more distinctly
   apart from it you are.
