Pages from the Original Manuscript: THE ESSENTIAL TEACHING OF SRI NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ

32.
Keep focused on the ‘I am’ till you become a witness to it, then you stand apart, you have reached the highest.
33.
When you remain in the ‘I am’ you will realize everything else is useless, and then you are Parabrahman, the Absolute.
34.
The One who abides in that principle by which he knows ‘I am’ knows all and does not require anything.
35.
Just sit and know that you are the ‘I am’ without words, nothing else has to be done; shortly you will arrive to your natural Absolute state.
36.
You have to realize that you are not the body or the knowledge ‘I am’. You as the Absolute are neither, nor do you require them.
37.
The Absolute or the Parabrahman is prior to the ‘I am’, it’s the unborn state, so how can it have or even require the knowledge ‘I am’?
38.
You have to transcend the ‘I am’ to enter the concept-free Parabrahman state, where you do not even know you are!
39.
One who has realized the knowledge ‘I am’, which means transcending it as well, for him there is no birth or death nor any karma.
40.
Witnessing happens to the state prior to your saying the words ‘I am’. Right now, right here, you are the Absolute, the Parabrahman. Hold on to the ‘I am’ very firmly, ever abide in it and it will dissolve, then you are as you are.
41.
You are neither the ‘I am’ nor its activities, you as the Absolute are none of these. Be a true devotee by abiding in the knowledge ‘I am’, thereby transcending the experience of death to attain immortality.
42.
What is it in you that understands this knowledge ‘I am’ without a name, title or word? Sink in that innermost center and witness the knowledge ‘I am’.
43.
Totally accept the knowledge ‘I am’ as oneself, and with full conviction and faith firmly believe in the dictum ‘I am that by which I know I am’.
44.
Catch hold of the knowledge ‘I am’ in meditation and the realization will occur that ‘I’, the Absolute, am not the quality ‘I am’.
45.
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.
46.
In deep meditation, infused only with the knowledge ‘I am’, it will be intuitively revealed to you as to how this ‘I amness’ came to be.
47.
To do away with body-mind sense or identity, imbibe or dwell in the ‘I am’. Later the ‘I am’ will merge into the ultimate nature.
48.
Having acquired and understood the knowledge ‘I am’ stay there in seclusion and don’t wander around here and there. Once you stabilize in the ‘I am’, you will realize that it is not the eternal state, but ‘you’ are eternal
