As this satsang occurred on Arudra Darshanam, following the initial silence, spiritual instruction was given on the nature of the Space of Consciousness in which Nataraja dances. Dialogues on the Nataraja symbolism, Self-inquiry, Self-Knowledge, and similar spiritual topics. Concludes with a recitation in Sanskrit and English of verses from the Annapurna Upanishad and in Tamil from chapter 18 of the Song of Ribhu. The recitations in English of verses pertaining to Nataraja from the Song of Ribhu and the Nataraja Darshanam and the chants of the puja that followed are not included in this recording.
****** Quotes from Satsang ******
: Formless is also intense. Formless is mind transcendent. While it might be worthwhile to think about these things, the actual practice of inquiry into the Self is quit beyond all that. And while the path is itself entirely formless so that the formless can be realized, the Maharshi has given very explicit extremely precise instruction. So it is formless yet precise.
