Come sempre una gran carica di entusiasmo mi pervade leggendo i libri di SantataGamana.
First of all, true to form with SantataGamana's other books, his interpretations are oftentimes a paradigm shift different from everyone else's. He has a wonderful way of simplifying complex esoteric topics and explaining them in such a way that we can actually use them in our own practices. I have found his work and thought processes to be a radical evolutionary departure from what came before him. I am afforded a bit more interaction with him than most as the editor of his books, and am in awe on a regular basis of the being that He Is.
This book has such utilitarian appeal. In some ways, it may be the most grounded and pragmatic of all his books to date (and they are all pretty much this way to begin with). Topics of most significance to me were:
1. The true meaning of Brahmacharya. If sexual energy is used as spiritual gasoline, how do we transmute sexual energy, and the importance of having a healthy relationship with sex (and all other desires for that matter)
2. working with our emotions, beginning with noticing them as raw physical sensations, allowing the energy to be there fully, but without adding meaning, judgments, labels, etc. I can tell you as a chronic pain specialist who incorporates a lot of mind-body techniques, getting folks to be able to do this is one of the "Keys to the Kingdom" of healing
3. having the right relationship with your body, including being non-violent to yourself
4. practicing kindness, truthfulness, and how to interact with others
5. Untying the energetic blockages known as "ego-knots"
6. deep insights to practicing non-dual awareness; these are some very crucial distinctions
7. learning to evaluate and heal deep-seated beliefs that may be holding you back
8. finding real contentment, and the true "I"
9. Understanding how meditation, discrimination, and surrender are all interconnected
May the direct path teachings from this book illuminate your own path. Godspeed !
I have read each of his books at least twice so far, and I can't help but feel that a new Scripture is unfolding before my eyes. But it is without dogma and belief.
Could be a coincidence.
Could be that the causality runs the other way -- i read the book because I became inspired to practice.
But given the consistency of the affect reading this author's words has on me I suspect there is some causal relationship between reading the books and inspiration to practice.
Thanks for the book.
I appreciate it.
Are a big step towards real understanding. May be the closest
thing to a true teacher.
