  1. Dear Shunyimurti
    Thank you so much for your beautiful expression of this Joy and peace that we inherently are. Your teachings reach far beyond the chattering mind and resonate with the
    Supreme Being. You walk us home.

    With such deep gratitude,
    Carol Hayward

  2. Thank you Carol, your comment is much appreciated. All blessings. Namaste

  3. Straight to the heart!
    I love his dire pronouncements, his way to convey the urgency to do this and be serious about it.

    It is hard to become silent!
    I fear I will amuse myself to death with my silly internal dialogue, before becoming silent…

    I did not now about Shunyamurti when I spent a lot of time in Costa Rica. And there is no way for me to come to Costa Rica now, as I’ve spent my last money on a farm on the very top of a 2000 meter high mountain on an eastern pacific island.

    Maybe the mountain will help me, along with Shunyamurti’s beautiful and untiring teachings!

  4. Infinite gratitude for this…..something resonates beyond any understanding when hearing this…..something knows this is what is…..and something remains speechless.

    1. Infinite Gratitude to you Devalinda! it is wonderful when the teachings resonate so deeply that you find silence. May you injoy the peace and bliss of Truth.

  5. Thanks for reminding me.I have been reading his book and checking him out.Seen no reason to not follow along.He teaches what most other good teachers do, maybe has more charisma than most and that is a good thing.I am grateful for this help so do not misunderstand my motivation is simply not to waste any more time..although of course that is only in this phenomenal dimension.
    My last teacher was Thich Naht Hahn, he had a stroke in 2013 and now is in Vietnam and cannot speak.I recognise some of Thays qualities in Shunyamurthi.

    Good teaching on why we need to go beyond thinking

    1. Thank you for you sharing, June!

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.
