  1. I am eternally grateful for you and your wisdom. Thank you thank you thank you

  2. Dear Shunyamurti

    Wanting to be of service as a Sat Yogi and being without desire. Are these two attributes not in contradiction with each other ?

    Love and Namaste


    1. Dear Peter,
      There is no contradiction. The highest service is to be without desire. The Self serves out of love, not desire.
      Om Shanti,

  3. When I learned about bodhisattva in an Eastern “Religions” course at my community college, I felt time fall away, and my heart let my mind remember that is my path. I have been selfish, stubborn, and impatient, and so I have been granted many life lessons to balance these with compassion, willingness, and patience…yet I feel I have only just begun. Thank you for teaching us💞🌠🥰

  4. While the enemy of your own anger is unsubdued,
    Though you conquer external foes, they will only increase.
    Therefore, with the militia of love and compassion
    Subdue your own mind-
    This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.
    –Thogme Zangpo (Thirty-seven practices of the Bodhisattvas)

  5. Second talk I’m listening to accompanying zazen before work.
    “Am I really so lucky to have a job?”
    He thinks.
    *Simulation blares*

    Thank you! Bowing.

One whose consciousness has merged with Brahman, the Absolute, and thus has been liberated from all desire, fear, attachment, and material frames of reference. Thus, a Brahmachari naturally lives a life of celibacy, simplicity, and inner solitude.


Meditative meetings in which the highest teachings are shared. Shunyamurti also offers guidance during questions and answers to resolve the most difficult and delicate matters of the heart.


Information, energy, or nonlinear change that occurs as the effect of events that take place in the future and alter the past, which is perceived in the present as non-ordinary phenomena, synchronicities, unpredictable emergent properties or other notable explicate arisings. The source of such forces may also lie beyond chronological time, in higher dimensions of the Real.

The process of non-process:

Since awakening is instantaneous, along with the recognition that one was never really in the dream, but enjoying the creation of the dream, it must be understood that making awakening into a process can only be part of the dream, and has nothing to do with Awakening itself.

The Real:

When we speak of the Real, unless otherwise qualified, we mean the Supreme Real. The Supreme Real does not appear. Appearance is not Real. All that appears is empty of true existence. There are no real things. All that is phenomenal is temporary, dependent, and reducible to a wave function of consciousness. The world does not exist independent of consciousness. There is no matter or material world. All is made of consciousness. Pure consciousness is Presence. It is no-thing, non-objective, not in space or time. All that appears in Presence, or to Presence, is an emanation of Presence, but is not different from That. This is one meaning of nonduality.

The Real is also a term used in Lacanian psychoanalysis. What Lacan means by the Real is that aspect of phenomenal appearance which is overwhelming, traumatic, or impossible. We would call that Real One. It is a relative Real, not Absolute. We add that there is a Real Two, which consists of divine love. Love is not an appearance, but it changes appearance, through recognition of its Source, into a divine manifestation, a projection of God’s sublimely beautiful Mind as infinite fractal holographic cosmos. Real Three is the unchanging Absolute, beyond all conception or image.

Dharma and dharma:

When we use the term Dharma (capitalized), we refer to our dedication to living in accord with the timeless principles of impeccable integrity that keep us in harmony with Nature and our Supernatural Source.

When we use the term without capitalization, we refer to our acceptance of the community’s processes, protocols, and chain of command with the “Haji! Spirit” of going the “extra mile” and working overtime when necessary to make the impossible inevitable, as our unconditional act of surrender to Love.
