The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 53

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte
  53. You feel the I am due to the five elements and three qualities,
  when they are gone, the I am goes, but you are still there.

This feeling that you are or I am is due to the body-mind,
   which is a composite of the five elements and the three qualities.

  The body, along with the elements and the qualities, is perishable,
   thus you can see that all these, the I am, the elements and
   the qualities are interdependent and destructible.

   Judging from this criteria how can all these be real?

  The Truth or the real is never dependent nor is it destructible
 and that is what you are.

 The body, the elements and the qualities may come and go
  but you are there forever because you are none of these.
