Satsang, July 30, 2016


We hold satsang weekly at our home in Mexico, in the Ajijic area near Guadalajara. We watch several short nondual and Advaita Vedanta videos from a variety of sources, and finish off with something from our long-time teacher, Nome of Society of Abidance in Truth – SAT, in Santa Cruz, CA.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi ◦ The Sage of Arunachala part 1

Historical video, with original film footage of the Enlightened sage Sri Ramana Maharishi. Up to about 1915.

Other Nondual teachers

Jackson Peterson: Dzogchen Immediate Recognition.

This short video is intended to be a direct “pointing out” of our already enlightened nature. It is the Direct Introduction to Rigpa in Dzogchen and the “Natural State” in Essence Mahamudra. No practices or meditation are needed for this immediate recognition.

James Swartz – The Real and the Apparently real.

James Swartz is an American teacher of Advaita Vedanta. I first met him in 2007, sitting on a big rock in the forest at the foot of Arunachala/ I was lost while trying to walk the Inner Path. When he found out I was with Nome, he said, Oh they guy who introduce Ramana Maharshi to the USA.” It turns out that Nome was the first teacher of Ramana in America. Robert Adams was Self-realized earlier, but Nome started public teaching first. Nome never had, or would, talk about this, making no claims to fame. James Swartz introduced himself as Ram, and now as Ramji, he is maybe the best teacher of Advaita Vedanta as a subject. I would say that Nome is the best teacher of Advaita as direct experience, rather than as a subject.

Nome: What is it that you truly are?

This is a particularly clear talk on Self-inquiry from Nome. What is it that you truly are? If you know this, then what else do you need to know?

If you want, take a few minutes and inquire. Use the spiritual depth you may have gained from listening today to dive deep within yourself.

If you enjoy this kind of posting let me know. And Like this post and Share it with your friends.
