Advaita Vedanta

What is Advaita Vedanta?

Introduction: The fundamental knowledge is Atman is Brahman. The Atman being the "Self" and Brahman means the "All Soul" or the Universal Consciousness. Vedas speak of mystical union as the realization that Atman is Brahman.

Advaita is a Sanskrit word that literally means "not two". Modern interpretation of Advaita is sometimes presented as "Nonduality" and even revised as the end of the Vedas or "Nonduality…

Ramakrishna Paramahamsa


Ramakrishna Parmahamsa is perhaps the best known saint of nineteenth century India. He was born in a poor Brahmin family in 1836, in a small town near Calcutta, West Bengal. As a young man, he was artistic and a popular storyteller and actor. His parents were religious, and prone to visions and spiritual dreams. Ramakrishna's father had a vision of the god Gadadhara (Vishnu) while on a religious pilgrimage. In the vision, the god told him…

The Path of Meditation: Raja Yoga

Raja yoga, is the royal path of meditation. As a king maintains control over his kingdom, so can we maintain control over our own "kingdom"—the vast territory of the mind. In raja yoga we use our mental powers to realize the Atman through the process of psychological control.

The basic premise of raja yoga is that our perception of the divine Self is obscured by the disturbances of the mind. If the mind can be made still and pure, the Self will automatically, instantaneously, shine forth. Says…

The Path of Work: Karma Yoga

Karma yoga is the yoga of action or work; specifically, karma yoga is the path of dedicated work: renouncing the results of our actions as a spiritual offering rather than hoarding the results for ourselves.

As we mentioned earlier, karma is both action and the result of action. What we experience today is the result of our karma—both good and bad—created by our previous actions. This chain of cause and effect that we ourselves have created can be snapped by karma yoga: fighting fire with…

“I leave my human nature to unfold according to its destiny.
I remain as I AM.”

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

"Show me the face you had before your parents were born"

What Ken Wilber taught me is that no depth of spiritual experience can negate our physical and primal drives for power, lust and validation. As primates, we’re wired to seek someone to look up to as well as to be looked up to by others. And that’s true whether we’re experiencing Godhead or Bodhisattva or not. It’s inescapable.

Consciousness - an animation of Spirit

This is a very cool original animation by Louis Lefebvre which chronicles the evolution of Consciousness from its inanimate state into human form and then back through spiritual seeking to Oneness. Its inspiration is the spiritual teaching of Wayne Liquorman and Ramesh S. Balsekar.

"Meditation on Being"

Being is what you are. Nothing you do will make you more or less than that. Whether you are a criminal or a saint, your state of Being is unchanged and eternal. Only the awareness changes.
Nothing you do in the world will change your state of Being.…

That Which We Seek is That Which We Are 1 Reply

Will there ever be a day when hundreds of millions of women are not suffering under Islamic gender apartheid? Will there ever be a day when hundreds of millions of children are not brainwashed into believing superstitions, for fear of burning in hell when they die? Will there ever be a day when a small but elite group no longer excludes others, under the premise that they are "god's chosen"? Can human rights and religion coexist?They say that insanity is doing the same thing, over and over…Continue

Fighting Religious Tyranny

Jesus is a placebo. That which you seek is looking out through your own eyes. One cannot defeat one form of religious lunacy with yet more religious lunacy. If Christianity could eliminate the brutality of Islam, it would have done so by now. But instead, both sides use each other to define themselves.  As Einstein pointed out, "You cannot solve a problem using the same thinking that created the problem". We don't end religious violence…Continue

There is a parable about a man who goes searching for the moon. He at last finds a finger, which is pointing up at the moon, and he sucks on that finger for comfort.But he never looks in the direction that finger is pointing.Such is the nature of religious belief.To look directly at the moon however is the nature of direct perception.Cultivating direct perception is the pathless path of the Mystic.      …Continue

What is the True Meaning of Yoga? - by Eric Allen Bell

 

With each passing day, as I look inward and as I take in what is going on with the world outside, my heart opens. And the more it opens the more I understand why I have kept it shut for so long. The more my heart opens, the more I understand why the world has closed its heart.

What Happens When I Die? - by Eric Allen Bell

Art by Alex Grey



In order to answer the question, "What happens when I die?" I feel it is important to take a look at something a bit less speculative and that is the question of what happens when we live.



There is no way to understand death if you don't know what life is. What happens between the moment you take…

The Part is Not Separate From the Whole - by Eric Allen Bell

 

If the body gets the flu, I'm not sick, the body is.

If the mind is traumatized, I'm not traumatized, the mind is.

If the heart is broken, I'm not broken, the heart is.

I am not who I think I am - I am therefore I think.

Meditation Practice for Self Realization: Letting Go of Thoughts

"When you place importance

on a thought,

whether it be an idea, an opinion,

a judgment, or a belief,

then you are bound to it.

It becomes part of your identification.



That thought then has power over you

because you are holding on to it,

you are defining yourself with…
