Rupert Spira Videos

This video is a bit longer than most on this site but there has been a lot of request for guided meditations from Rupert so here is a good one. In this meditation we are guided to become aware that ‘I’ is the continuous element of all experience and that this ‘I’ knows itself simply by being itself. Let’s get started…

In this lovely 12 minute video, a woman who experiences a distinction between her ‘inside world’ and ‘outside world’ asks for guidance on integrating these parts of herself.  Rupert explains the difference between the two and that ultimately they are part of one indivisible reality. Let’s listen…

In this interesting video from Rupert, there’s a discussion with a seeker about the difference between the direct path of self-inquiry vs a more progressive path that directs the attention to an outside object such as mantra meditation or countless others. The questioner wants to know which path will be better at melting his conditioning… let’s listen…

In this lovely 11 minute video, a question seems to be experiencing some confusion over the sense of Awareness and the one that we call “I”.  Rupert explains that what we call “I” is always Awareness’s knowledge of itself and that this Awareness is EXACTLY the same in each of us.  Let’s listen…

In this revealing video, a questioner says that he has just read one of Ramana Maharshi’s books and wants to know what is the difference between the self inquiry that Ramana teaches verses self inquiry that Rupert teaches. Rupert explains that there is ONLY ONE true method of self inquiry and then proceeds to explain the act of self inquiry. Let’s listen in…

In this amazing 12 minute video, a questioner is very confused about the fact that she is infinite consciousness and can not understand how we as “sparks” of consciousness fit in to all this.  Rupert explains that the reason she is experiencing this confusion is because of misunderstanding.  Let’s listen in…

In this revealing 15 minute video, a questioner says describes the years of searching she has been through and says that sometimes she feels like she is more confused then ever and wants to know, “When will I finally be permanently Awake?”  Let’s listen to Rupert’s response to this very common question…

In this brilliant video, a questioner explains that she is having some issues about free will. In answering her question, Rupert gives us an even more important nugget of wisdom that demonstrates that ANY attempt at speaking about the Truth must contain concessions in order for our dualistic mind to attempt to understand a non-dual reality…

In this great 24 minute video, a seeker talks about her search for enlightenment and asks Rupert to help her let go of the quest. Let’s all listen to Rupert’s response…

In this FANTASTIC video from Rupert Spira, a questioner says that he gets confused between the “I” as the “Self” and the “I” that is the separate self.  Rupert uses his metaphor of someone named John Smith playing the part of King Lear to demonstrate that there is ONLY ONE “I”… PERIOD!  Let’s listen as Rupert clears up the confusion.

In this revealing 10 minute video, Rupert explains that over 98% of religious teachings is completely false and even the purest non-dual teachings contain massive amounts of concessions in order to try to explain in words what can not be explained in words about our true nature. That means that NONE of ANY teachings can be taken literally. Let’s listen to this incredibly important message…

In this lovely 15 minute video, an exasperated mother wants to know how her knowledge of non-duality could possibly help with the emotional reactions that her teenager seems to generate.  Let’s listen to Rupert’s sage advice…

In this great little 8 minute video, a questioner has questions about the integration of non-dual understanding into everyday life. Rupert explains that once one has come to the realization of the self through the inward journey, and is fully grounded as the Self, one can not help but implement our new understanding back into the world of objects (form).

In this insightful video, a questioner wants to know more about love and how it relates to our true nature as Awareness. In his response Rupert dives into the true meaning of love, why all beings crave it, and how it relates to what we are. Let’s find out now…

In this revealing 12 minute video, Rupert Spira explains that most mistakenly believe that there are THREE states called “waking”, “dreaming” and “deep sleep”, but the reality is that there are only two states because “deep sleep” is a non-state.  It is very important to know this distinction. Let’s listen to his simple explanation…

In this rare 7 minute video, a mother asks how to support her children in knowing their true nature.  Rupert explains that it is purely natural and necessary for a child to eventually feel separate from the parents, but that there are many things we can do to help prepare them for a non-dual understanding.

One of the signs of the realization of the Self and non-dual understanding is the concept of loving without without attachment. In this 9 minute video, a questioner wants to explore this concept and find out how this works in our daily life. Let’s find out…

In today’s day and age it is becoming more and more prominent in modern society to feel that everyone’s truth is just a valid and anyone else’s truth.  Although this may be true on the surface (in form), the fact is that when it comes to the nature (essence) of the universe, there is only ONE truth at the source of ALL sentient beings. In this awesome 12 minute video, Rupert Spira explains why this is so…

In this AMAZING 11 minute video, a questioner wants to know why some say realization of the self can only happen through effort and some say it can only happen through grace, requiring no effort.  In the attempt to answer this question, Rupert uses a parable to show how our false sense of self comes into being and how it instantly disappears upon the realization of the Truth.  Let’s watch…

Here is a wonderful guided meditation with Rupert Spira called “The Jewel of the Self”. In this guided meditation, Rupert leads us below our thoughts into the quieter dimension of being.  Let’s create a quiet place to listen and enjoy…

In this lovely video from Rupert, a questioner wants to know Rupert’s perspective on the statement, ‘There was never any suffering because there was never anyone to suffer.”  Rupert explains that with the right context this statement can be true, but if quoted without the context can be completely false. That is why we need to watch out for spiritual parrots who just repeat short quotes such as “you don’t exits” or “the world is not real” and really have no idea what they are talking about and spreading (sharing) “wisdom” that does more to confuse others than help anyone. Let’s listen…
