The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 55

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte
55. This knowledge I am has come out of the state prior to it
and now is the cause of all suffering, before the I am came
you were happy, so go back.

If you are sensitive and observant enough you can very clearly discern that
 this knowledge I am has arisen on the state prior to it.

 This sense of being, knowing that you are or I am has just spontaneously
appeared and has become the cause of all suffering.

You have experienced those states like the period from conception to the
appearance of I am, or in deep sleep where the I am lies dormant
or is held in abeyance.

During any of these states was there any suffering or worry?

The Guru has made all this clear to you and now tells you to go back
 and abide in the I am and transcend it forever and be happy.
