6/17/12: Knowledge of Being

Initial silence is followed by spiritual instruction on the nonobjective nature of the Knowledge of the Self, one’s true Being. Dialogues about objectless Knowledge, transcendence of thought, the witness and unalloyed Consciousness, Self-Knowledge, and other spiritual topics. Concludes with a recitation in Sanskrit and English of verses from the Ashtavakra Samhita and in Tamil from chapter 28 of the Song of Ribhu.

****** Quotes from Satsang ******

Nome:Sravana, manana and nididhyasana – that is alright. The active ingredient in all of that is the essential Knowledge, the nature of which is actually the formless, infinite Consciousness. It may not be that you are doing “way too much” but the idea “I am doing” is too much. You will recall Sri Bhagavan said that mediation is without the idea that “I am meditating.” If you attend to what you take yourself to be, what you regard as your identity, that would be direct. Then the very nature of the meditator turns out to be the only substance in the meditation and the very nature of the inquirer is itself the only answer to the inquiry. As the Upanashads say, “It is where words and thoughts turn back unable to grasp.” That is what you are.
