Riding the Tiger

The mind is like a tiger that pulls you into the great illusion of Maya—the suffering nature of life. To ride the tiger is the great teaching of Papaji—the sublime vigilance of now. To master your mind is the deep recognition that there is no mind.

Samurai of Now

The great teaching, or dharma of Ramana Maharshi, is the power of stop. Stop running. Stop hiding. Stop lying. Stop thinking. But how do you stop when your mind continually wants to fight or react to life situations?  Is it even possible to stop thinking?

Arunachala Siva

The Golden Mean

The golden mean is the ancient philosophy of Aristotle also known as the middle way, which helps you break free of the paradoxical nature of life or the existence of opposites. Satsang is not a philosophy, but is actually the golden mean itself—a vast indescribable energy that immediately cuts through the paradox or the illusion of you to reveal the truth of you—unending happiness.

Who is the Guru?

The satguru on the inside is the vast indescribable eternal presence of pure happiness. To abide in this presence requires that you surrender everything—every thought, desire, attachment. The moment you surrender everything is the moment you abide in the satguru as the satguru—the eternal ONE.

Swarupa

Knowledge will not set you free. The one who seeks knowledge is the ego and the more knowledge you collect the bigger the ego and the greater the arrogance. It is a trick of the mind to avoid the overwhelming intimacy of discovering the overwhelming love and happiness in your heart.

The Empty Cup

What do you do when your inquiry no longer seems to work? What do you do when you have been to satsang enough times that your mind "knows" the right answer? This podcast explores actual purpose of self-inquiry and the devotional practice it represents. True self-inquiry is the living presence of the empty cup of your heart. It was never meant to be purely a mental exercise.

Simple

The teaching of Ramana Maharshi is not about knowledge or what you know. It is not even really about understanding. It is much more simple. In fact, it is so simple this teaching can be rejected by the idea that you know what it is, but this overlooks the depth this teaching represents that simply cannot be known. The mountain path of Ramana Maharshi is best described as a way of life devoted to the simplicity of pure being.

The Mountain Top

Who wants enlightenment or freedom? Who is this who that wants lasting happiness or nirvana? The greatest stumbling block to freedom is thinking you know or understand what you have read about freedom or enlightenment. The ego never makes it to the mountain top. You will never enlightened. What does it mean to be enlightened? What is freedom really?
