The Nisargadatta Gita by Pradeep Apte - Part 99

read by James Traverse

The Nisargadatta Gita
Pradeep Apte 

  99. The knowledge ‘I am’ means consciousness, God, Guru, Ishwara, but you,
  the Absolute, are none of these.

  The knowledge ‘I am’ is but one of many names that have been attributed to it, like consciousness,
  God or Ishwara and Guru.

  Why so many names?

Because the ‘I am’ is nameless and all these names have come by as it (the knowledge ‘I am’)
 intuitively revealed itself to different seekers who had deeply meditated on the ‘I am’.

  Some saw it as God, some saw it as Brahman, some saw it as Guru and so forth.

    The ultimate revelation is, of course, that you stand apart from all these and are the
    Absolute, the formless, the eternal and totally free of all attributes.
