Perfection and Desirability

Perfection and Desirability

November 26, 2019

We are having a dual experience. We experience the opposites. If there is perfection, there is also imperfection. Yet, I the existence is absolutely perfect. How is that possible? How can we call this existence perfect when all we see is imperfection? Isn't our struggle against this imperfection that we find around us? Let us explore our own experience, and find out if it is really perfect.

Supernatural influences on the mind

Supernatural influences on the mind

April 28, 2019

The individual mind, although it appears to be segregated, resides in a sea of minds, all present right here and right now. It is always influencing other minds and is being influenced by them. Supernatural influences are the ones, where the source is nonphysical. Its always our own tendencies that allow, other minds to influence us. Since a mind cannot remain unaffected by influences, it is useful to know which influences are beneficial for us, and which ones are not.

Group Minds

Group Minds

February 26, 2019

The individual mind is merely a concept, an idea, an assumption. There is no individual, except in the form of a temporary ignorance of the whole. Any mind, is always a group mind. An interconnected whole of potentially many.This realization turns our view of individual minds or a person, upside down.

The Left Hand Paths: Part 2 - Applications and Consequences

The Left Hand Paths: Part 2 - Applications and Consequences

February 8, 2019

What are the applications of occult techniques? What can go wrong when they are indiscriminately practiced? Why were they suppressed? Will they remain hidden forever? In spite of their power and effectiveness, such practices remain a double edged sword. However, there are some milder versions, which a seeker can learn and benefit from.

The Left Hand Paths: Part 1 - Risks and Opportunities

The Left Hand Paths: Part 1 - Risks and Opportunities

February 8, 2019

The techniques for manipulating the mind and to empower it, enhance it with various abilities, have been clubbed under the occult, and are generally called the left hand paths. Although they are condemned by great masters or traditions around the world, and were largely suppressed, they still survive, albeit in a corrupted and ruined form. These can be effectively used to bring the mind to a detached and desireless state very quickly, accelerating its evolution, but are ridden with danger and pitfalls.

Advaita Bodh Deepika: Part-3

Advaita Bodh Deepika: Part-3

December 21, 2018

In this part of the series, we read, about the collective illusion of the universal mind, the Ishvara. We learn that some teachings are sugar coated and diluted to suit the level of evolution of a student. The teachings of a creator and a creation are some among many such skillful means to purify a mind and bring it to nondual wisdom. Finally we see that there is only one ignorance of one Self, and liberation of one mind brings an end to all ignorance there is.

Advaita Bodh Deepika: Part-2

Advaita Bodh Deepika: Part-2

December 7, 2018

In this part of the series, we read about the mechanisms of Maya, the force, latent in the existence itself, which wakes up through minds and project an illusory experience. We also see how an illusion of ego arises, and how can one Self/existence appear as many egos. We explore the beginning and cause of the Maya.

The Illusion of Cause and Effect

The Illusion of Cause and Effect

December 2, 2018

Causality is just an idea, a concept, a creation of the mind. Cause and effect apply in a tiny area of the Ego and are related to survival. Cause and effect do not provide a convincing explanation for the reality or for our own direct experiences. Why does it seem like there are causes for events and there are effects of them? How does the mind create causation? If not in terms of cause and effect, how else can we understand this continuous change we call the experience?

Something And Nothing

Something And Nothing

November 23, 2018

Is the real nature of existence nothingness? Or is it eternally something? Why is there an experience of something instead of nothing? How is something being created out of nothing? If the experiencer and the experience are one, and if the experience is nothing but change, and if the experiencer is unchanging, how can it also be a change? These are very strange and puzzling questions. The answer is stranger and even more mysterious.

Origin of Experience

Origin of Experience

June 28, 2018

Once the unity of the experience and the experiencer is recognized, a question arises - why is the experience so varied, why are there so many forms instead of a simple plain experience of being. How does this colourful drama of experience come into being. We will attempt to explain that via direct observation and form a theory about the arising of a diversified experience out of simple change and necessity.

Nature of reality: 16 - Reality is Unknowable

Nature of reality: 16 - Reality is Unknowable

May 30, 2018

Since all experiences are mediated via the mind, which distorts what is into a subjective impression of it, all we can experience is necessarily a distortion. That means, we cannot know what is, we only know that which is not. It also means, all we can have is ignorance, not knowledge. Any knowledge is refined ignorance, nothing more. Reality stands on the foundation of ignorance and is unknowable.
