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.
When Rama - Dr. Frederick P. Lenz recorded these talks, he was developing an approach to self realization that, while emphasizing meditation and enlightenment, drew from a variety of traditions including Vedanta, Tibetan Buddhism and American mystic teachings.
In this book of 13 transcripts recorded in 1983, Rama openly explores topics such as "How to Know God" and "Why Don’t More Women Attain Enlightenment", "Love" and "Tibetan Yoga and Secret Doctrine".
This talk-set given by Rama includes 3 talks; Psychic Development, Meditation & Kundalini and Enlightenment & Self-Realization.
"The universe is actually alive. It is intelligence -- an intelligence that far surpasses anything that has yet been seen or dreamed or imagined. And you enter into that intelligence. You are it. You're a reflection of it. But to see it all, to be it, to be that totality -- that's what attracts a few of us to perpetually go forward into it. And it's neither moral nor amoral, good nor bad. It's not an achievement. It's just what you're drawn to. We're drawn back to the sea of eternity ... and along the way there are places you can get stuck." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
"There are two forces at work in the universe -- unity and diversity. Unity is enlightenment. Diversity is illusion or maya, ignorance…. So we could say that, when you step out of enlightenment -- you could say out of grace, if you’re religious -- we step into the world of diversity. We see things as separate…. So then, your journey is to unity, and you need to think more about unity and focus on it. How do you go about perceiving unity? Well, when you stop thought, that’s unity. Thought is diversity. Where else will you find unity? You’ll find it first and foremost in your heart -- in love. Love is the strongest power in the universe. Love is unity." Rama - Dr. Frederick Lenz
