The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 70

read by James Traverse


The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 
 
 
70. The Absolute or the Parabrahman is prior to the I am, its the unborn state,
so how can it have the knowledge I am?

Your true, natural, Absolute or Parabrahman state is before the knowledge I am appeared.

It is the state that ever prevails and knows no birth or death.

Whatever is known or seen only appears to have occurred on it using the knowledge I am
  as a basis for propagation, which is all an illusion.

But once the illusion is gone how can it have the knowledge I am?

It doesnt even need this knowledge as it is the unborn state.

  You must have a firm conviction and come to the conclusion that you are unborn.
