The Yoga of Love

“The path that is followed by most persons in the beginning of their spiritual search is the path of love. Love is the easiest and most effective way to begin our search for self-realization, for ourselves. Love is the highest of all qualities that we can experience….

“Naturally there are different forms of love, different expressions of love. We can really say that the gradation of love is determined by to whom that love is directed…. In the most advanced state of love, we don't love for any reason or any purpose; we don't even direct our love necessarily to an object. We just love for the sake of love. Love is beginningless and endless ecstasy. It's an unfathomable mystery. It is the study of our lives.” Rama – Dr. Frederick Lenz

The Caretaker Personality

The Caretaker Personality is a way of dealing with the world. As you meditate, you come to realize that you don't have one personality, you have many different selves inside you. You can choose which one to use in any situation, like choosing clothing that’s appropriate to an occasion. Two in particular -- The Child and The Warrior -- are of great value to the spiritual aspirant.

Women, Men and Self Realization

As a woman, do you feel like you have been playing a role based on what society thinks women should be? As a man, do you feel you are limited by the world's description of masculinity?

Sophisticated Sexuality

"I've had hundreds of lifetimes as a spiritual teacher. Yet, even as a spiritual teacher, I continued to have relationships. I continued to love people. The quality of the relationships of course changed as I changed, and I think that you'll find this will happen to you too. What will become important will be to do your very best for someone in every way, to be a servant of another individual, without one impure thought, action or motive. "It's not a question of what we do, but of intent. Sexuality is essentially unimportant in the spiritual process; Love is totally important in the spiritual process, in any form -- it is the spiritual process." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Love - The Fourth Level of Ecstasy

"It seems to me that it's essential to know about love. Love comes in many forms, and to not love is to not live. Many people talk about meditation and self-discovery and bringing themselves to higher levels of consciousness, yet they seem, for all their knowledge and ability, for all the various terminologies that they can utilize ...to not know very much about love. So this evening I'd like to place you a little bit ahead of the game, if I can. I'd like to save you about ten or twenty lifetimes, and I'd like to talk to you about love." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Reincarnation

"There are two sides to self-discovery as in most things -- an outer, more popular side and an inner side. Today I would like to tell you about the more esoteric aspects of reincarnation. The esoteric teaching of reincarnation is that it's happening all the time. At every moment we're going through a change. Our being isn't solid … it changes all the time, not just at death. In other words, reincarnation is happening now, your awareness is changing now. You are new at every moment. You are an extension of the previous moment of your awareness -- yes -- but you can completely and radically change, if you can unhook yourself from what you've been." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz

Tantric Buddhism

Tantric Buddhism is a pathway to Enlightenment. In Tantra we do not avoid the world. We embrace it. We believe that God exists in everything. We focus on the clear light of reality in and through all experiences.
