The late 20th century was a determining time period for planet Earth. Did the people of the Earth choose freedom? Find out how the choices that were made during that time period might reflect in our world today.
Enlightenment is achieved through a great deal of self-effort. You must go through every step of the self-discovery process. You must win the ecstasy; you must win the freedom, through your self-effort.
This talk transmits the feeling of enlightenment or the timeless void, nirvana, ecstasy. God is in all things. You are God, and once you accept that with humility, you can transform.
It is not necessary to pretend you want to be a black belt when you just like to work out once in a while. Self-acceptance is necessary to make progress along the path. If you truly want to attain enlightenment there is no hardship in the practice.
In Buddhism we call Enlightenment the natural state. But with billions of human beings on Earth thinking and acting, it is difficult for us to even quiet our mind. We are all incarnate Buddhas and we seek our own innocence. Find out how we can become more aware of our true nature and reside in the natural state.
We do not need to shave our head and wear an ochre robe to meditate and progress on the path to enlightenment. No, we do not, and that is what is so exciting! We can meditate anywhere at any time. All we need to do is still our mind. Find out as a spiritual aspirant what attitudes and actions can help us on our journey.

Everything exists within our own mind. How we navigate through these worlds and what the path is that leads beyond all worlds this talk addresses.
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.
Occult Dancer was recorded live, in a Los Angeles studio, in 1987. The musicians set up the studio to form a circle around Rama, who sat in the center and meditated while the band played.
“Most people enjoy the feeling of complacency. They've learned to like the feeling of sitting down in front of the television set, of lying on the beach in the sunshine, of driving around in their car without anything to do, of talking endlessly for hours with others about trivial subjects -- in other words, no demand.
"A successful student decides that they enjoy the world of demand -- the world of willpower, the world of work -- more than the world of trivial pursuit. If you're out there playing Trivial Pursuit, it means that you've got nothing going on in your life. And Trivial Pursuit is more than a board game: it's the way that most people live. Their lives are trivial pursuits." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
