Self Knowledge Satsang – June 7, 2017: True Knowledge


Here is our satsang the we gave on June 7th.

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.

Chapter 1, Verse 68-72 – Ribhu continues to describe his own state:

Forty Verses on Reality

  1. Ordinary knowledge is always accompanied by ignorance, and ignorance by knowledge; the only true Knowledge is that by which one knows the Self through enquiring whose is the knowledge and ignorance.

Silent Meditation

Notice that you exist. Were does this sense of “I” come from?

Om, Shanti, shanti, shanti, Om.
