Raya Buddha

Buddhahood does not happen by being made to happen.
It is unsought and naturally indwelling, and so is
spontaneously present.
 Rest nonconceptually in this effortless, natural abiding state.

~The All-Creating Monarch Tantra, from Longchenpa's
Treasury of the Basic Space of Phenomena

Just This

The obviousness of this perspective is amazing.

It is screaming at us,
as every sound and taste,
and every thought and feeling,
every sight and touch.

Happening through all the senses already.

Nothing you need to do for this,
Nothing you need to achieve.

As it is already the case.

This is all there is.

The preoccupation with the story,
with keeping up the self image is so absorbing
and so much work that we loose sight of
this plain and very simple fact.

The natural state is not something to be achieved,
it is discovering and recognizing
that it is never not here,
and happening as all there is.

Just This..

The game of distinctions

There is only This.
Appearing as Everything.

All the different understandings,
e.g. traditional advaita vedanta,
versus neo advaita,  is never versus really,
as both are appearances in This.

Its the mind's nature to make distinctions,
it is doing this so well,  that we believe them
to be true.

Well, this is then also only a game of distinction
appearing in This as This..

Nothing is ever excluded.

2 months ago we started an Auroville Nondual Meetup group.

Nonduality being fairly unknown in Auroville 
we thought to put it up as a possibility where people 
with this interest could meet. 
Exchange views and  insights.  
And share the joy of discovering. 

In India of course there is a deep tradition of
Nonduality or Advaita. 
With names like Ramana Maharshi,  Nisargadatta,  
just to name a few.   

And there are places where advaita is attracting 
many who are interested in this topic,  
like Rishikesh or Tiruvanamalai.  

To our surprise young people from neighbouring cities 
like Chennai and Pondicherry are joining our meetings.   
They see our Meetup announcement and come 
with an openness and curiosity.  

They have never heard of Nisargadatta, Ramesh Balsekar. 
And they love this unadorned message.  
Free from tradition,  worship and incense. 

Just the exploration into what we truly are.

Nothing standing in between you and anything.

Only This.

This is all there is.

Just This.

You are the acceptance of what is.

The blasting good news is,
there is nothing to achieve
because you are already what
you are seeking.

( Wow, this is already HOME..)

The bad news is,
there is no one who could
benefit from it.

This is It  :-)
