Section One is a collection of some short quotes jotted down by me while I was compiling the ‘I am quotes’ or preparing ‘The Nisargadatta Gita’. Section Two has two short lectures prepared from matter composed by Mr.Vijayendra Deshpande and sent to me after the completion ‘I am Unborn’. These are not actual lectures but have just been so arranged for my own understanding of what Maharaj said to visitors on or around these dates. For the matter in Section Two I shall forever remain indebted to Vijay.

’.

Mr.Vijayendra Deshpande

‘I am Unborn’
. These are not actuallectures but have just been so arranged for my own understandingof what Maharaj said to visitors on or around these dates. For thematter in Section Two I shall forever remain indebted to Vijay.
 
Section One
1.Do you accept completely the knowledge that you do not exist?2.The moment you know ‘you are’, you are individuality. When youdo not know ‘you are’, you are perfect in the Absolute.3.I am the infinite, timeless Absolute, Awareness without beingaware of Awareness. As the infinite I express myself as finite, asthe timeless I express myself as time.4.Your ‘being’ depends on the body-mind – how can this be true?Can that which depends on anything be the truth?5.If you are convinced that everything you see is unreal, then whyhang onto the unreal principle?6.All the pride of being is based on the body-mind, the ‘beingness’,it’s a temporary phase, hence unreal. The One who understandsthis is the Eternal.7.Whatever is supposedly happening is an illusion. Nothing is reallyhappening, because the basic concept ‘beingness’ is itself anillusion.
 
8.The individual as such has never come into being, thus there is noneed to identify with anything.9.In the ultimate Awareness nothing has any consciousness of beingpresent. There is no ‘presence’ in the Absolute.10.The feeling ‘I am’ or ‘being’ has occurred due to its associationwith the body-mind. In reality you are none of these. You are theunborn.11.Hold on to the ‘being’ only, as it would one day take you to the‘non-being’ or unborn.12.The darkness you see on closing your eyes in the shade of theGuru’s (Beingess) grace. Take rest there and you would merge inthe Satguru (Non-beingness or the Absolute).13.Your ‘being’ is an illusion from the Absolute standpoint. Stay putin your ‘being’ then that primary desire ‘to be’ would drop off.You are then the Absolute.14.Where is the person who should hold onto the worldly life orshould give it up? The question does not arise. Charged up withthis knowledge no difficulty can touch you.15.Unless you negate individuality there will never be anyunderstanding.
