The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 18

read by James Traverse





The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte
 
 
   18. You must meditate on the I am
   without holding on to the body-mind,
   the I am is the first ignorance, persist
   on it and you will go beyond it.

   Bring all your attention to the I am, meditate on it;
   try to do it by keeping the body-mind totally aside.

   In the beginning the body-mind will resist this abidance in I am,
   but with practice they will automatically not interfere.

   Remember, this I am has tricked you into believing the unreal
   so you may call it the first ignorance.

You have to be after this I am constantly only then can you go beyond it;
otherwise it will continue playing games with you.
