In this unique volume of essays, Shunyamurti applies Greek mythology to describe the Dao of Kundalini. This is the key to understanding how our life energy unfolds our latent psychospiritual powers through unveiling layer after layer of illusion. But this poetic text also explains the unfolding destiny of our planet. It captures the paradoxical secret of how we as a species could have reached chakra seven—the summit of our scientific and spiritual knowledge—only simultaneously with the collapse of the social order and the impending destruction of our world. Integrating the deepest ancient and modern wisdom of East and West, these writings will bring peace to the anxious heart, coherence to the mind, and courage to those souls who are willing to face the full truth of our situation.

The paperback version will be available via Amazon in the coming weeks as well.


The Seven Veils of Maya is the second volume in the Gems of Wisdom series. 

“Many sages say there are seven veils, each of a different gradation of thickness and agitation. Some souls on the quest for Truth receive the grace of having only one veil between them and Self-realization. Others labor under two or more of the intricate tapestries that compose the veils. Most seekers have to peel off all seven, one after another, to finally attain the Ultimate Real.

The description of these veils may provide the information that enables a seeker to peel off the masks of God more quickly and easily. Once a veil’s pattern is understood, it loses its fascination. Then the underlying Mystery of God emerges clearly. Those with great resistance to dissolving in the Supreme Light of the Sun of Total Consciousness will have more layers of veiling to remove before the full presence and power of the Infinite Intelligence absorbs the mind in the blissful energy field of the Godhead.

Maya literally means illusion. The veils of Maya constitute the great illusion that we take to be the world. When all the veils have fallen away, no created cosmos remains. Without the veils, there is no matter, no space, no time. There is only the Supreme Self. Thus has it always been and forever shall be.”

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.
