The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 90

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 

90. The first witnessing is that of ‘I am’, the primary prerequisite for all further
witnessing, but to whom is the first witnessing of ‘I am’ occurring?

  The first thing that you came to know was that ‘you are’ or ‘I am’.

 It is the first thing that you are a witness to, the primary and mandatory prerequisite
 for all further witnessing to occur.

Once this ‘I am’ takes hold of you it grows to gigantic proportions, this expansion is so enormous
 that you lose awareness of the ‘I am’ itself in the process and go about your various activities.

It is the ‘I am’ that is witnessing the world, but who is witnessing the ‘I am’?

  That’s the question to which you have to find an answer and that is what all the ‘Sadhana’ (practice) is for.
