Satsang in Prague
Sunday 25 October 2020 | 19:00 - 21:30 uur
Satsang is a ceremonial celebration and meeting in the service of Truth.
“Listen to me, exactly as you listen to music, or to the rain. Do not interpret what I say, do not try to understand me. This music of inspiration, the spontaneous words, take you out of thinking and bring you into another dimension; the dimension of your original and unformed self. Spirituality is an art and not a belief, conviction, method or therapy.
It is entering the reality underlying all phenomena.
Opening yourself and listening to this art transforms your entire being, or actually, it exposes your being and moves you to creativity. Authentic religion is art. Authentic or objective art moves into religion.
Religion is the connection with totality.
it is being absorbed by the whole, in which all delusions about separation are dissolved.
Just like Bach and Mozart can take you to the highest light, just like you can melt together with nature, that is how satsang with Naropa takes you into your deepest inner being.
This is freeing yourself from your small and limited state of being and this takes you into Universal consciousness.”
Satsang is the most subtle form of art, that cannot be transferred by techniques and explanation. It is beyond cause and effect. It is beyond comprehension, as is Love.
An artist is open and in connection with the supreme and is able to express what cannot be expressed or explained in words.
Satsang is an age-old concept; people come together to be in the field of consciousness and love of an awakened one, until they realize this awakened and enlightened consciousness itself. In this time of spiritual inflation this term is unfortunately used for other gatherings. Naropa represents the authentic transmission in a contemporary way. All superfluous dogmatic and traditional concepts have been seen through and released.
He represents “the new man” or what the Buddhists call the time of Maitrea. The master is not an authority but a friend. You do not look up to that, nor do you admire him, but you are friends with him, because you are essentially no different: consciousness / love.
This dangerous friend is a mirror that shows you your true face and your falsehood.
He loves you unconditionally and confronts you with your ignorance and pain: your spiritual sleep. He or she helps you with the total integration of your awakened manifestation. Until you no longer have any identity, now you are free of yourself and the imaginary others.
Enlightenment is virtually unknown in the West. It is not surprising, therefore, that people get deluded by this principle. That is part of Maya, the distortion of reality. You sometimes hear distortions such as ‘conversations about non-duality’ or ‘dialogue about truth’.
This is, however, the immediate realization and incarnation of reality. It is beyond the verbal and conceptual mind. It is immensely deep and irreversible. This ensures that you pass all psychological and emotional baggage and realize the inground, the void of existence. The ‘viewer’ or ‘realizer’ disappears. This is called enlightenment.
You will not get cheap or mental teachings with Naropa. Even the scarce techniques – just like the oral transmission – are only here to focus your attention and bring you into the field of consciousness. From divisions to being and from being to non-being.
Nor does Naropa wear a spiritual uniform to impress you or to seduce you. He does not pretend to be different than he is.
Nor can you make a career in the Sangha because there are no positions to distribute. It is important to let go of every position or attitude. No one to be. He has no role. He is de-rolled. The master disappears as soon as you see your reality. He certainly does not try to please you. He does not want you to understand him nor that you agree with him. He does not fulfill your childish needs. He is himself and invites you to be yourself too.
