I Am That by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

I Am That by Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj free pdf ebookThe forms around us, says Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, are constituted of the five elements. They are transient, and in a state of perpetual flux. Also they are governed by the law of causation. All this applies to the body and the mind also, both of which are transient and subject to birth and death. We know that only by means of the bodily senses and the mind can the world beknown. As in the Kantian view, it is a correlate of the human knowing subject, and, therefore, has the fundamental structure of our way of knowing.

This means that time, space and causality are not ‘objective’, but mental categories. The existence and form of all things depend upon the mind. Cognition is a mental product. And the world as seen from the mind is a subjective and private world, which changes continuously. In opposition to the restless mind, with its limited categories – intentionality, subjectivity, duality etc.-stands supreme the limitless sense of ‘I am’. The only thing I can be sure about is that ‘I am’; not as a thinking ‘I am’ in the Cartesian sense, but without any predicates.

Again and again Maharaj draws our attention to this basic fact in order to make us realise our ‘I am-ness’ and thus get rid ofall self-made prisons.
