Walking for Awakening



Hebergeur d'image

Walking can open our eyes and ears to the wonders of the universe, and change the world into a place of peace and joy. It can help us to endn suffering, sorrow, sadness and worries, and bring us the happiness of peace. In the same way, it can enable us to see the suffering in life. If we can’t see that which arises before and all around us, how can we expect to see our own nature ?

Seeing our own nature is not likely to come about through closing our eyes. On the contrary. we must open our eyes, and awaken to the true nature of the way things really are in the world.

Self-Realization




In Reality,
knowledge, the knower, and the knowable
do not exist.
I am the transparent Self
in which through ignorance
they appear.


Ashtavakra Gita


"The Ashtavakra Gita is an ancient spiritual document of great purity and power. Pure, because it is relentlessly one-pointed. Every word is aimed at triggering Self-realization no suggestions for self-improvement, no rules for moral behavior, no practical wisdom for daily life. Powerful, because the mere reading — or repeated reading of it can be enough to send a ripe mind reeling into Truth." (Bart Marshall)
