Re: Talk by Philip Marvin 14/12/2015

So yet another swipe at Hungerford Group! It should be obvious that the question ‘What is Self-realisation?’, is simply another formulation of Ramana Maharshi’s famous question ‘Who Am I?’ – the question that the Shankaracharya said led to Ramana’s realisation. As any genuine teacher knows, no words...

Re: Remembering the Self

Hello Dr Ali. Welcome to the forum. Yes, there certainly are many different descriptions of Self-remembering. I think there may be two reasons for this. First, such experiences seem to occur without words. When you try to attach words to the pure experience it seems to affect the memory of that expe...

Re: From Mexico

Hi Wendy
Great to see you posting on the forum again. I hope it will encourage Anguille to get in touch again. I am learning a Bach Partita and Haydn sonata - one of his later ones and full of fun.

There was a lovely article from Mexico in the latest edition of Contact.

  2. Most questions (especially yours) contain their own answers.
  3. Be still.

Post Meeting Note – some questions and a correction

When compiling this paper, I had originally taken the quote from Wei Wu Wei to mean ‘It is very easy (but not inevitable) for a school to become “an efficient instrument for reinforcing the stranglehold of the so-called ego.”’ But is it possible that Wei Wu Wei is exactly right and that in fact scho...
