The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 28

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte
28. Prior to birth where was the I am?
Dont contaminate the I am with the body idea,
I as the Absolute am not the I am.

What were you before you were born? Where was the I am?
You were Nothing and there was no I am.

 On this Nothingness of yours has the I am appeared
and it has got contaminated with the body idea.

Now, through discrimination you need to undertake a decontamination
procedure, free the I am of the body idea, abide in it and transcend it,
because you as the Absolute are not the I am.
