The Million Dollar Question of Nondual Yoga Vedanta Meditation

From a presentation by Swami Jnaneshvara at the Center for Nondualism on May 25, 2008. Just like the game show, this million dollar question is the last of all the questions of nondual Yoga Vedanta. It is also the hardest question, and the most important question. It is the question that supersedes all other questions. It is the question that is neither in the past, nor in the future. It is the question by which all other questions pale by comparison.

Sermon on the Mount, Nondualism, and Yoga Vedanta

Presentation by Swami Jnaneshvara at the Center for Nondualism on May 11, 2008. This presentation is on the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7 of the Christian bible), Nondualism, and Yoga Vedanta Meditation and Contemplation. There are over 39,000 Christian denominations. Each has its own interpretations of the teachings. If they have the right to interpret those teachings the way they want, then I claim the same right of interpretation that they have claimed.

Shakti, Kundalini, and the River of Tantra Yoga Meditation

There is one energy flowing in a river, a hydroelectric power plant, electricity, and the many forms of energy such as recorded music, television, and microwaves. Similarly, there is one energy in the universe, Shakti, that manifests as many forms, which have many names, such as kundalini, prana, chakras, and the physical body.

Yoga and Institutional Religion

Yoga is in religion, but religion is not in Yoga. The principles of Yoga are (in alphabetical order) in Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Sikhism, and most of the other religions. However, unlike religions, Yoga itself has no deity, worship services, rituals, sacred icons, creed, confession, clergy, institutions, congregation, membership procedure, or system of temples or churches. The word “Yoga” means “union” referring to the direct experience of the wholeness of ourselves at all levels.

Transitions: New Years and New Moments
in Life and Meditation

The transition from one year to the next year happens in an infinitely short moment that is actually non-existent in time. So too, there are transitions in the moments of life and the moments of meditation. Mindfulness of transitions in daily life and during meditation time is extremely useful on the spiritual journey to enlightenment. The recording ends with a 15-minute guided contemplative meditation on Transitions, which begins at 54:42.

Who's Driving Your Chariot?

The chariot is used by the ancient sages as a symbol for how to train your mind and senses. Though most of us do not use horse drawn chariots, the lesson is as practical today as it was thousands of years ago. Allow your mind to visualize this image, and it will become a wonderful tool in your daily spiritual life.

Money, Sex, Fame, Health, Self and Yoga

There seems to be two polarities of having or not having enough money, sex, fame, or health. However, there is a third choice coming from the choice of Self-Realization, which brings all of the fruits of life, as well as the highest joy.

The student rejoices from Self-Realization

This is one of the most inspiring writings I know is a section entitled The Disciple Rejoices. It's near the end of The Crest Jewel of Discrimination, called Vivekachudamani. It was written by Shankara some 1200 years ago. After Self-Realization, the student cries out in joy about his experience of the union of his individual soul, Atman, with the Absolute, Brahman.

Last edit of this page: Jan 31, 2013




This site is devoted to presenting the ancient Self-Realization path of the Tradition of the Himalayan masters in simple, understandable and beneficial ways, while not compromising quality or depth. The goal of our sadhana or practices is the highest Joy that comes from the Realization in direct experience of the center of consciousness, the Self, the Atman or Purusha, which is one and the same with the Absolute Reality. This Self-Realization comes through Yoga meditation of the Yoga Sutras, the contemplative insight of Advaita Vedanta, and the intense devotion of Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra, the three of which complement one another like fingers on a hand. We employ the classical approaches of Raja, Jnana, Karma, and Bhakti Yoga, as well as Hatha, Kriya, Kundalini, Laya, Mantra, Nada, Siddha, and Tantra Yoga. Meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer finally converge into a unified force directed towards the final stage, piercing the pearl of wisdom called bindu, leading to the Absolute.
