The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 84

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 

 84. A true devotee, by abiding in the knowledge ‘I am’, transcends the
  experience of death and attains immortality.

Who is a true devotee?

The one who not only understands the ‘I am’, but also abides in it without swerving from it
 for even a moment over a prolonged period of time.

He and only he who has done this ‘Sadhana’ (practice) with complete devotion is a true devotee.

 A moment of ripening is bound to come and he will transcend the ‘I am’, then he will know no
 death and will attain immortality.

  It must be understood that it is the ‘I am’ that is born and dies.

 You are the Absolute, apart from the ‘I am’, and know neither of these.
