September 19, 2021

Satguru Swami Nirmalananda's Satsang

You can get enlightened while you are alive or you can get enlightened on the way out.  Gurudevi explains that, according to India’s sages, one human lifetime is usually not enough to accomplish all you have come to do and to be.  Yet, the purpose of a human life is to get enlightened.  Shaktipat is the initiation that gives you the inner awakening. Like a rocket ship, it propels you toward enlightenment.

The mystery of the Guru, explained by one who knows.  Gurudevi tells the story of her Guru, Baba Muktananda, receiving Shaktipat from Bhagawan Nityananda.  She explains that enlightenment is not something you attain by yourself.  It is a gift you receive from a qualified guru, one who knows their own Self fully.  It is a gift given by one who is authorized to give Shaktipat, the initiation that awakens your own spiritual power.

8/8/21 The Mystery Within

8/8/21 The Mystery Within

August 8, 2021

Gurudevi tells us that yoga’s goal is the knowing of your own Self. It is an inner knowing of the mystery hidden within you. When you receive Shaktipat you have an inner experience of your own Self, an inner opening that gives you access to the deepest dimension within, forever after. The root teachings of this system come from a revealed text from 1300 years ago, called the Shiva Sutras. This text explains the different processes that a seeker goes through to reach the highest, the knowing of your own Self as Shiva. Gurudevi gives us a deep and practical understanding of how these approaches are used to reach the highest state. 

8/1/21 Greater Capacity

8/1/21 Greater Capacity

August 1, 2021

Gurudevi describes the capacity of a human being in this way: “You were born with an insatiable desire which you have tried to satiate for much of your life. You misunderstand what your desire really is. Only one thing can possibly fulfill your insatiable desires. That is God, specifically the inner experience of God. When you experience your own Self, all your desires melt away.” Tantra is a yogic system that specializes in giving you the experience of God within. It’s a whole science of Consciousness whereby you have an inner experience of your inherent Divinity. This inner knowing is your greater capacity.
