Here you will find a well produced video of quotes and wisdom from Nisargadatta Maharaj, one of the greatest modern day masters and Jnani.
In this super short 5 minute video, Alan provides food for thought surrounding the concept of purpose and how our mind reinforces this concept by using memory to string along moments of eternity to create the illusion of purpose.
In this amazing 8 minute video clip from Rupert Spira, we explore how it is possible to direct our attention towards source (the self, awareness) and come to realize that it is not possible to place our attention on awareness because awareness IS the source of attention. This may sound like a riddle at first but by spending only 8 minutes with Rupert, we can come to stand knowingly as the awareness itself.
In this AMAZING 13 minute video from Rupert, he explains that to get the best “experiential” awakening it is often best to use duality to awaken to non-duality. He goes on to explain that this approach is the only way to true Awakening because we don’t want to return to oneness as experienced by babies or animals, we want to return to oneness awakened to the true nature of reality.
In this short six minute audio from Alan, he helps us to understand that the past is only a story of where we have been and that the only reality there is happens every moment in this fresh and happening now.
In this AMAZING sixteen minute video, Rupert explains in detail how we are all the SAME awareness and NOT multiple versions of the same awareness,and that love itself is only the recognition of our shared being. Lets listen in on this beautiful description of love and being…
In this beautifully produced five minute video, Adyashanti explains that the pursuit of happiness only leads to sorrow, or as Chuang Tzu said, “Happiness is the Absence of Striving for Happiness”. Let’s listen to this beautiful, meaningful and enlightened message…
In this little eight minute video clip from Rupert Spira, a young boy asks why consciousness has to explore itself given that it knows everything. Using metaphors Rupert tries to explain and ends up making the very important point that destiny is not something that is pre-planned but is actually spontaneous in nature, helping us to realize that destiny is actually “spontaneous destiny”. Let’s pay special attention around the 6:30 minute mark…
Very often people lose the essence of the Advaita teachings through an ‘over-analysis’ of what is said or heard. In this very enlightening video from Gautam he explains why this is so and what we can do to remain within the “true meaning” behind the teachings. Let’s listen…
Gautam Sachdeva is a disciple of Ramesh Balsekar. Ramesh Balsekar is a direct desciple of the late Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. He also became one of Maharaj’s favorite live translators and did so for several years until Maharaj’s death and went on to write several books containing Maharaj’s teachings and discourses.
In this video, Adyashanti shows that the shift from just understanding to full realization is through experience and begins with a stillness of mind.
In this 6 minute video from Rupert, he provides us with the correct understanding to help us deal with other people’s drama, even when they try to pull us into their drama. Very useful advice indeed!
In this super short 3 minute video, Rupert responds to someone that is confused about what is real and what is not real, and in the process gives us a completely different perspective or meaning of “Individuality” itself.
In this 10 minute video, Alan takes us on a closer look at thought, the natural flow of thought, and the illusory thought of an existing thinker. In other words, by the end of this video one can plainly see that the idea of a thinker is nothing but a thought itself. Listen to what Alan has to say…
Most of us have experienced mind activity that can easily be labeled as “Mind Attacks”. This is when the mind brings up a series of thoughts that latch on to our attention and takes it for a trip that seems inescapable. This is often paired with a series of fearful thoughts attaching itself to a deep seated fear. In this 5 minute video, Adyashanti shows us a simple (though not always easy) way to make sure that our sense of identity does not fall into this trap along with the mind.
In fourteen minutes, this well edited compilation offers the wisdom of three modern day spiritual teachers (Gurus) on the subject of fear, how fear is created and what we can do about it. Let’s listen in ….

In this eight minute clip from an interview by Rick Archer, Rupert explains what the realization of the truth (non-duality) can mean in everyday life. Although Rick poses questions originating from the mind and looking for answers that will satisfy the mind’s objections to how things “really are in the real world”, Rupert never strays from the freedom realized in the essence of non-duality (Truth).
In this cute four minute animation we find Frick and Frack discussing Our True Nature As the One and Only Source. The greatest advantage to these cartoons is that it allows us to focus more on the MESSAGE, rather than the credibility or character of the messenger.
This is Part 6 of this discussion of our true nature between Frick and Frack.

Avadhuta is a Sanskrit term from some Indian religions or Dharmic Traditions referring to a type of mystic or saint who is beyond egoic-consciousness. This 4 1/2 minute video contains “The Song of the Avadhut”. Of all the mystical treatises of ancient Indian literature, the Avadhut Gita, or “Song Of The Avadhut,” is one of the most eloquent and compelling. The Avadhut Gita is a call to knowledge, the supreme knowledge of ultimate Truth. It is the knowledge of the ultimate, indisputable Truth of existence; and it is this very Truth which has the power to make us free. Let’s relax and soak in these words…
This video contains some awesome things shared by Alan Watts if you can overlook the incredibly annoying music. Please try to overlook the music and focus on the message.
In this short 5 minute video, Rupert gives us some insight into choice. And by using a simple example, he demonstrates that the choice is actually an interpretation of an experience where there is actually no choice made. In fact, science is now showing that the impulse for a decision happens up to six seconds before the actual choice is made.
