The Path to Enlightenment: By Dr. Harsh K. Luthar

A Popular Dichotomy

A popular dichotomy has emerged about Enlightenment in the West since the 1970s between the schools of “gradual enlightenment” and “instant enlightenment”. Some of this can probably be traced back to Poonja ji’s and Nisargadatta Maharaj’s disciples returning to the west in the 1970s and 1980s from India and bringing their understanding of Advaita Vedanta with them as given to them by their teachers. 2,221 more words

Harsha reblogged this on Luthar.com and commented:

In this essay, I suggest that the philosophies and perspectives of the gradual or the direct path are not inherently meaningful. Their truth lies only in being teaching tools. Words and concepts such as the “direct path” and the “gradual path” are meant to point at the truth but they are not themselves the truth. The Truth must reveal itself to us in our own Heart.

Q: Why do you begin each week of the West LA Satsang with 30 minutes of silent meditation? New MJ Awakening Blog

MICHAEL: To sit quietly and observe one’s mind for an extended period is often uncomfortable. Why? Because when we are engaged in non-stop doing throughout our day, we are not consciously aware of just how noisy/busy our mind is, bouncing from thought, to thought, to thought like a “drunken monkey stung by bees.” 139 more words
