A few pointers from the Satsang...


  • “There is nothing to be attained. We are already That which we are seeking but we have mistakenly identified ourselves as being the body and the mind, believing that we are objects living in a world full of other objects!”

  • “The seeker of Truth must desire Liberation more than anything else and should be animated by the absolute conviction that he or she is not an individual person but the Pure All-Pervading Consciousness.”

  • “One has to watch the fluctuations of the mind without touching anything. By remaining as a neutral witness of thoughts, sensations and perceptions, one comes to know that which is prior to the mind.”

  • “For those who follow the Path of Knowledge (Jnana) or the teachings of Non-Duality (Advaita), there is no need to try to stop the modifications of the mind. We should just ignore the stream of thoughts and focus on the subject of all relative awareness, or awareness itself.”

  • “Awakening has nothing to do with anything that happens. It is timeless. No one is enlightened as enlightenment is the dissolution of the person or ego-identification.”

    “We are not just conscious human beings. We are the Pure Limitless Consciousness itself, manifesting itself in the form of this universe.
    Pure Consciousness is all there is. It is another name for the divine Being or Presence. It is the ultimate Reality, beginningless and endless. It is beyond time and space. It is one without a second, or indivisible oneness, yet it is the source of everything, the foundation of all what is manifested. It is Bliss. It is most Benevolent. It is beyond description though it has been formulated in diverse ways at diverse times by all the great religious traditions of the world, and directly known and experienced beyond words by the sages. It cannot be grasped by the intellectual mind, but can only be recognized as our True Nature
  • through no mind, that means at the level of the Heart. The recognition of our True Nature or Self is the end of suffering.
