Who AM I? This is an interesting question and I believe we encounter this question ourselves.
Let’s analyze like a layman
Are we the body?
Answer: No, we distinguish ourselves from the body.
Are we the mind?
Answer: No, we distinguish ourselves from the Mind.
We are aware of our thoughts including the “I” sense we have.
So, What is with us is Awareness, which is the answer to the question “Who AM I“.
All we have with us all the time is “Awareness”.
Which accompanies us like a shadow all the time.
An analytical discussion on this subject was done in “Mandukya Upanishad”
An excellent presentation by Swami Sarvapriyananda at IIT Kanpur.
