Self Knowledge Satsang – May 24, 2017: What to Worship


Here is our satsang the we gave on May 24th.

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.

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, verse 8

  1. Under whatever name and form one may worship the Absolute Reality, it is only a means for realizing It without name and form. That alone is true realization, wherein one knows oneself in relation to that Reality, attains peace and realizes one’s identity with it.

Devananda Sarasvati: Ulladu-Narpadu Verse 8: Worship

Rupert Spira: The Self in You is God’s Self

Mooji: YOU ARE BEYOND ALL – MOOJI – Ribhu Gita

The One Self – Discourse from Nome at SAT

There is a glitch in the start of the video. Just play through it.

Silent Meditation

Notice that you exist. What is the nature of your identity?


Om, Shanti, shanti, shanti, Om.
