A student seeks clarification on what Nisargadatta Maharaj meant when he said, “I have no use for my being.”
We are directed to an experiential discovery that cannot be grasped through the knowledge of the mind.
“We want to experience our dreams. We want to experience fulfilment in a phenomenal world. We want to preserve our sense of identity, who we believe we are, and yet who we believe we are is absolutely not true.
Above all, you have the sense that ‘I exist’. Nisargadatta Maharaj is saying, “Before this ‘I exist’ feeling, I truly am.”
