The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 32

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte
 32. Understand that the knowledge I am
 has dawned on you and all are its manifestations,
 in this understanding you realize you are not the I am.

Has this knowledge I am come willingly to you?

Was it volitional?

In retrospect it doesnt appear to be so.

 There was that moment and you knew that you are and thenceforth
 the feeling I am went on getting strengthened.

I am so and so got embedded into you and the rest of the activities
of your life followed.

  From this, is it not conclusive that the I am has created your world
 and not the other way around?

 This I am has dawned on you and you stand apart from it just as a witness
 with no participation in any of its activities whatsoever.
