Initial silence is followed by spiritual instruction on the nature of the Self, the truth of the knower, and freedom from “I” and “my.” Dialogues on the significance of Arunachala, freedom from the supposition of a second knower other than Consciousness, ego-dissolution and direct experience, the dream of illusion and the Realization of the stateless Existence of the Self, freedom from misidentification with thoughts, and other spiritual topics. Concludes with a recitation in Sanskrit and English of verses from Chandogya Upanishad, followed by Tamil recitation from Song of Ribhu, chapter 11.
****** Quote from Satsang ******
Nome: Whenever anything is known, apparently gross or subtle, the Self itself knows itself in the guise of that form. The form has no independent existence and that which has an utterly dependent existence cannot truly be said to exist at all. The known therefore is really the knower. Who knows? No object, that is the entire world, knows itself. No thought knows itself. Who knows? Who is it that seeks to know the Self? Sri Bhagavan has eloquently stated in the form of a question, “Are there two selves, one to know another?” Similarly, are there two selves, one to not know another? Then in Self-Knowledge, who knows? What is it that is known?
