Self Knowledge Satsang – May 17, 2017: Purnam, Perfection


Here is our satsang the we gave on May 17th.

Every week we offer satsang at our house here in the Ajijic area, by Lake Chapala in Jalisco, Mexico. The focus is on teachings of nonduality that flow from Ramana Maharshi. We begin by reading a few verses from The Song of Ribhu. Then we listen to commentary on a verse in Ramana Maharshi’s key book, 40 Verses on Reality, followed by videos of several nondual teachers. This post has links to the ones we used this week.  All of these are available from YouTube.

Ramana Maharshi descending Arunachala

Song of Ribhu

This classic work of Advaita Vedanta (nonduality) has ancient origins, probably dating from the period of the Upanisads. Sri Ramana Marharshi regularly recommended it to spiritual seekers.

40 Verses on Reality – Ramana Maharshi’s Complete Teaching – verse 7: Perfection, or Purnam

  1. Although the world and knowledge thereof rise and set together it is by knowledge alone that the world is made apparent. That Perfection wherein the world and knowledge thereof rise and set, and which shines without rising and setting, is alone the Reality.

Commendatory on Verse  by  Devānanda Sarasvatī

Rupert Spira :
The Fullness Of Experience Is Saturated With The Emptiness Of Our Self

Mooji – Perfect beyond the concept of perfection

Nome: Purnam, and Perfect Fullness (Purnam)

Listen to both these. These are both great discourses on Purnam. The first has the famous verse from the Upanishads.

Silent Meditation

Notice that you exist. What is it that exists? Who am I?

    Thank You for sharing this Satsang. So many ways to observe perfection.
    Namaste, Nanette

    • Richard Clarke Says:

      Perfection is who we are. So to observe it, we just need to know ourselves.
