Initial silence is followed by spiritual instruction on the absolute Existence of the Self, the unchanging nature of which is supreme peace, and the nonobjective Knowledge that reveals it. Dialogues on being beyond the three states, Consciousness, the unreality of objects, the nonexistence of thought, formless Being, the significance of the instruction “Be as you are,” the meaning of “is,” constant Knowledge, and other spiritual topics. Concludes with a recitation in Sanskrit and English of verses from the Kena Upanishad and in Tamil from chapter 21 of the Song of Ribhu.
Quote from Satsang:
Nome: Are you certain that objective things exist?
Questioner: I’m not certain of objectivity.
Nome: But you are certain of Existence.
Questioner: Yes, so if I take away the objective part it makes more sense.
Nome: If you take away the objective portion from Existence it is the same as taking away the thought mode from Consciousness. It is in thought alone that doubt can arise, likewise differentiation. It is within the dualistic ideas of thought that we can say “I do not know this” or “I do know this”, etc. The certainty of Self-Knowledge lies in its transcendent nature. It is thought transcendent and differenceless. So, the difference between yourself and Existence does not exist in which case doubt about that reality of that Existence is not possible.
