Among the many valuable esoteric teachings offered to humanity by occultist and philosopher, H. P. Blavatsky was one that spoke of the heart as the seat of spiritual consciousness. Mystics from traditions around the world, both past and present, regarded this center, and the practices associated with it, as a major key to true spiritual unfoldment. During this talk, we will reflect on their…

Jiddu Krishnamurti talking on "What is a Spiritual Life"

 

A religious life, not all the religions, not the monks and all that. They are not religious. I know they would abhor me when I say that. I will show it to you logically why it is not. It is all put together by thought. The invention of god is put there by thought. It is simple. All this is clear when you understand the activity of thought.

Radhanath Swami

Radhanath Swami, born as Richard Slavin in Chicago, came to confront a deep sense of alienation from the materialism and the civil injustices of mid-20th century America. Near-death encounters, apprenticeships with advanced yogis, and years of travel along the pilgrim's path led him to the inner sanctum of India's mystic culture.

video by Vimala Bhikkhuni on mindfulness

Presented on April 20, 2017 In his essential teaching of “The Four Foundations of Mindfulness,” the Buddha gives a comprehensive and systematic explanation of meditation.

The Tarot deck is one of the mainstays of the Western mystical tradition. But some facts about its symbolism have remained uncovered until now—especially about the 22 cards known as the Major Arcana. Taken from French esotericism, these findings cast important new light on the relation of the Major Arcana to the Hebrew alphabet and sacred geometry.

The Ten Ox Herding Pictures are a series of images with accompanying poems, and are among the most beloved pictures in Zen Buddhism. They have been the source of endless commentary and inspiration in Zen since at least the 12th century. These ox herding images are emblematic of the spiritual path to enlightenment.

Reincarnation has been a topic of great interest to many individuals through the years. It has moved from a forbidden topic to a subject that is casually discussed in daily conversation. More than this, however, the ancient teaching of reincarnation provides us with direction for living our daily lives and offers insight into the often confusing and tumultuous world around us.

Ravi Ravindra

Any spiritual seeker will have asked questions such as: Who am I?, What am I?, Is the death of my body the end of me?, and Is there anything that will endure beyond death?

For a self-interested mind, always wanting and never still, there is no cure for restlessness and unhappiness. However, teachers of different traditions have spoken of a way that leads beyond the confines of this conditioned mind. How can we, in this demanding modern world, follow their precious advice and find what we are really looking for?

Richard Sell

With a world falling ever more under the sway of illusion we need help coping with our perception and reaction to this crisis. Jnana Yoga has much to offer, not only in our personal spiritual journey but in practical matters pertaining to living in the 21st century, a time of acute stress and change.

Tim Boyd

A central fact of life is that all living things experience death. For the reincarnating being the experience of death is something that has been repeated countless times. Why then is this common experience so widely misunderstood and feared?
