Satsang with Nirmala

 
 

Nondual Spiritual Mentor and Teacher

 

Who are you really? Are you your body, mind, and personality? Or are you the spacious awareness in which they appear? Questions like these point us to the infinite Oneness and Presence that is the true source of peace, happiness, and love. Satsang means "gathering together to inquire into our true nature." It is an opportunity through inquiry and dialogue to discover that the love, peace, and happiness you have been seeking are available inside of you here and now. Satsang is a chance to finally rest from all seeking and struggle and to experience directly the completeness and perfection of your Being. You will discover the sweet richness that is revealed when you give the truth your undivided attention.

“In my spiritual mentoring sessions, I have found all the qualities one might expect from a deep contact with truth: honesty, humility, unending patience and precision in dealing with all manner of life's questions and challenges. Having heard many of the best examples from the plethora of contemporary Advaita and Nondual teachers emerging over the last twenty years, I can only say that few have illuminated the rich and complex intersection of spirituality and psychology as well as Nirmala. His balance of heart and wisdom creates a nurturing container for waking up."”—Jeff Wolcott

Words to Ponder

 

Love Is for Giving

An excerpt from Living From the Heart by Nirmala. Download a free ebook copy today.

living from the heartWhat is love and where is it found? We search for love and try to get love, and yet it seems like we never get enough. Even when we've found it, it can slip away as time passes. What if there is a source of love that never fades and is always available? What if love is as near and easy as breathing? What if you have been "looking for love in all the wrong places" instead of actually lacking love?

Love is both simpler and more mysterious and subtle than we imagine it to be. Love is simply the spacious, open attention of our awareness, which is the gentlest, kindest, and most intimate force in the world. It touches things without impinging on them. It holds all of our experience but doesn't hold it down or hold it back. And yet, inherent in awareness is a pull to connect and even merge with the object of your awareness.

It's this seemingly contradictory nature of awareness-the completely open and allowing nature of it and its passionate pull to blend with and even become the object of its attention-that gives life its depth and sweetness. There is nothing more satisfying than this delicious dilemma of being both apart from and, at the same time, connected to something you see, hear, or feel.

What Christ Consciousness Transmission Is and Is Not

From Nirmala's nondual advaita blog

I read the following during one of our online Christ Consciousness Transmissions (CCTs) to explain what Christ Consciousness is and how the transmissions work:

Transmissions We call this Christ Consciousness Transmission, so I wanted to say a little bit about what Christ Consciousness is and is not. Christ Consciousness is a higher dimension or aspect of consciousness. Even though it is called Christ Consciousness, it does not belong to Jesus even though he experienced it in his life on earth very fully, and he continues to experience it very fully now. And in the same sense, it does not belong to anyone here today, although everyone here today has an equal capacity and potential to experience it.

When we say that we are transmitting Christ Consciousness, it really just means that Gina and I, Peter and Jenai, and all of the ascended masters that participate in this gathering (including Jesus, Mother Mary, Yogananda, Anandamayi Ma, and several others) are experiencing this higher consciousness to such a degree that we also act as antenna and transmit it to others. But to some degree, every one of you on this call will experience the same higher consciousness and so you will also naturally and inherently transmit it to others, including your family, friends and acquaintances. And everyone on this call can to varying degrees even embody this dimension of consciousness.

What Is the Role of a Spiritual Teacher or Mentor?

snow benches no frame In general, a teacher or mentor is a person who guides, instructs, or helps another in the process of gaining knowledge, understanding, or skills. What about a spiritual teacher or mentor? What is their role? And more specifically what does a spiritual teacher or spiritual mentor in the nondual or Advaita tradition do?

A spiritual teacher/mentor’s role is unique in that the goal is not to transmit knowledge or understanding as much as it is to somehow bring about a recognition in the student of the student’s own pre-existing nature. This is a much more subtle thing than simply teaching someone a skill or understanding. It is not that a spiritual teacher never provides spiritual teachings or knowledge or understanding, but that knowledge or understanding by itself is not the goal. A student can have a broad knowledge of spiritual principles, and yet can still not have truly recognized those principles as being inherent in his or her own being. So spiritual teachers or mentors may teach a lot or they may not teach anything, depending on what the student needs in that moment to experience this deeper recognition of their own true nature.
