The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 97

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 

97. Do nothing but stay in the knowledge ‘I am’, the ‘moolmaya’ –, or primary illusion,
and then it will release its stranglehold on you and get lost.

Once you have understood the knowledge ‘I am’ you have to do nothing but just abide in it.

The ‘I am’ is the primary illusion or concept and is also known as the ‘moolmaya’ (rootMaya).

At present you are in the firm grip of Maya (illusion), come to the root of this Maya, which is the ‘I am’.

    On abiding in the ‘I am’ in fact you are now holding Maya by the root or its neck!

 And what will happen now?

 Maya realizes its own existence is in danger and thus releases its stranglehold on you, runs away and vanishes.
