The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 29

read by James Traverse



The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte
 
 
   29. In the absence of I am nothing is required,
   the I am will go with the body,
   what remains is the Absolute.

   Before the I am appeared did you have any
   requirements or did you have any demands?

    None whatsoever, all demands began with the
 arrival of the I am.

 What is this I am? It is nothing but the essence
   of the five elements that make up the body.

   The I am depends on the body, is as transient as it
and will go together with it, so neither of them are true.

What remains then? It is only the Absolute.
