Five Skandhas

“To understand more precisely the process of confirming the solidity of I and other, that is, the development of ego, it is helpful to be familiar with the five skandhas, a set of Buddhist concepts which describe ego a five-step process.” – Chogyam Trungpa


Why Study the Great Tradition

“The reason such critical study is useful is that you already have all kinds of inherited, thought-up, and propagandized ideas that correspond to ideas that can be found in the traditions. Thus, you can see how those ideas traditionally get elaborated as a way of life, and you can see their limitations.” – Adi Da Samraj


Esoteric Christianity

Norman D. Livergood

“Let a divine being approach you! It may be nothing or everything. Nothing, if you meet it in the frame of mind in which you confront everyday things. Everything, if you are prepared and attuned to it. What it is in itself is a matter which does not concern you; the point is whether it leaves you as you were or makes a different man (or woman) of you. But this depends solely on you. You must have been prepared…”
Rudolph Steiner, Christianity as Mystical Fact


Bhagavan Nityananda

Swami Nityananda did not write books, go on lecture tours, or create a spiritual organization to propagate his teaching. He did, however, make himself available to thousands of people who revered him as Spiritual Master.
