Welcome to Satsang with Ananta

Ananta shares Satsang with the blessings of his Guru, Shri Mooji. In Sanskrit, the word “Satsang” ("Sat” – truth, “sangha” – company) simply means being with the truth. Satsang with Ananta is an invitation for sincere seekers to come to the complete realization of the Self. In his presence, many beings have experienced a stillness of mind and an opening of the heart. Attention to thoughts reduces and the mind comes to rest. In this peace, our true nature reveals itself. Although words may be used in Satsang, communication also happens non-verbally, through a deeper transmission of the heart. All are welcome to attend. There is no registration required.

A Concept Hides Fulfillment of Direct Experience - 8th August 2016

Ananta:"The mind which is itself a bundle of energies, (heart energy and similar energies like that), itself, does not have the ability to look. The looking is happening which means that the phenomenal perceiving is happening; sight is happening, (inner sight or outer sight), and there is an Awareness of even this sight, There’s Awareness of this looking. You are aware that the looking is happening. And we are not so worried about the quality of the looking or the quality of the attention or the phenomenal percei...

Spontaneous Recognition is Happening for Us Now - 8th August 2016

Ananta:"The natural unfolding or the spontaneous recognition and the settling in, in our true nature, is what is happening for all of us. And satsang is another way to see that this is what is unfolding. So, like Bhagavan [Ramana Maharshi] said :‘Ultimately it is the Satguru’s Grace which does everything’. So, we cannot fix a cause as to why something happened like this, or why this seeming-oscillation is also happening."For more information on Satsang with Ananta, please visit www.anantasatsang.org https:...

Allow all vicious thoughts to come, don't be fearful of them; and allow them to go. Let them be released. If you want, don't think about it as a coming of these vicious thoughts. Just look at it as a release. It is there somewhere, and it needs to get released, so it is going.

On True Knowing

For most of us, to know something has meant that we have a concept about something. To illustrate… If a credible source tells us that the Universe has 100 billion stars, we feel that we now know something about the Universe. But is this really true? Tomorrow an even more enlightened source might say that …

This Openness, Surrender

More and more, this openness will reveal its gifts to you. Because openness seems like a very simple pointing. To the mind, it seems like ‘Can openness really be at the core of these pointings which are about Awareness and Consciousness?’ But it is very much. Because this openness, acceptance…, this openness, surrender; we cannot …

Always Start with Right Now

The first aspect of this is this recognition that we are coming to; this primal witnessing that witnesses everything, including the sense of existence itself. This one is the recognition that we are coming to. But because we have fed this, nourished this tree of conditioning for a long, long time with our beliefs about …

What Does Knowing Mean Actually?

Q: I really don’t know anything at the moment. [Laughing] I just know that I wanted to look closer with you on doership, what is going on. And I don’t even know if this is true. So, there’s some obsession going on with making these highlights. [Highlight videos of segments of satsang talks by subject] …

BOOKS Books written by Ananta

ARE YOU AWARE NOW

Based on a series of talks given by Ananta between April to August 2014. “You are always the Awareness itself, and as Awareness you know that all that is appearing in front of you is just an appearance. There is no one here besides You. All appearances are a play of Consciousness. You stay as the Awareness itself. Once the one that wants to help vanishes, then pure grace and help will flow from You, from your Being itself. Do not get confused, my beloveds. This is all for your own good, for your own freedom. There is only You. You are all there is. All emerges from your own Being. And the way to bless the entire Being is to find your complete freedom.”

CAN YOU STOP BEING

Can You Stop Being consists of excerpts taken from some of Ananta's earliest Satsang's between August to October, 2014. “Ask yourself right now: Can I stop being now? In this question you will see that there is a Being here; your own Presence, which cannot be stopped. This Being is not a man or a woman, it is just Being. Irrespective of what happens in the story of this life, this Being is unaffected, unchanged, untouched Consciousness. Prior to I am a person, I am a man, I am a partner, I am a parent, I am a child, prior to all of this: ‘I Am’.

DONT BELIEVE YOUR NEXT THOUGHT

This book is a selection of Satsang dialogues that took place between Novemmeber 2014 to October 2015. “Although it can sound simple, almost trivial, but to not believe our next thought is to experience the freedom, the non-resistive, non-suffering state, right now. You cannot suffer without buying your next thought. Even if you believed all your previous thoughts, this fresh moment is so beautiful and powerful that all prior conditioning has dissolved already unless we pick up the tree of conditioning again by pulling at the branch of the next thought.”

AWARENESS ITSELF IS AWARE OF AWARENESS

This book is a selection of satang dialogues that took place between January and February, 2016. “You see, the Knowing is always Knowing. Awareness is always Aware, and This is always 'I'. So although Being is coming to a realization of its Source, The 'I' has always been 'I' . Even in the playing of ‘I’ as ‘I Am’, ‘I’ has remained as ‘I’.”

BEYOND ALL CONCEPTS

This book is a selection of satang dialogues that took place between March and May, 2016. “That’s why I say that ‘You are free now’. What does that mean? As Awareness you are free. But the advice is ‘Keep coming to satsang’. For who? For the Beingness. There is nothing here for the person. You see? So Consciousness in this monologue is saying to Itself: ‘Hey, buddy, you know, it’s good, what we’ve walked together so far, but let’s just keep at it’. You know? That’s the real monologue that God is having with Itself. It’s all part of the game.”

FREEDOM IS NOW

This book is a compilation of short, poignant talks taken from online Satsangs with Ananta between 19th May to 11th July 2016. It is not the recognition which is difficult. More difficult is to give up our stories. But That which You Are, (and you’re recognizing it now), cannot have a story. That which is not phenomenal cannot have a story. That within which all phenomenon is born and dissolves cannot have a story. You Are This.

WHO IS AWARE OF AWARENESS

Based on a series of talks given by Ananta in July and August 2016. “Can it be that all the wise ones were fooling us with their imploration ‘Know Thyself’ just so that one day we would come to this conclusion that ‘The Truth about the Self is unknowable’? The Realization of the Self is completely possible! The Self is completely Knowable! But not in the way we think. Bhagavan Ramana Maharshi's repeated advice to inquire ‘Who Am I?’ and Nisargadatta Maharaj's guidance to stay with the sense ‘I Am’ was not so that one day they could say ‘Fooled you!’ There is a big clue in the phrase ‘Know Thyself’. The clue is to look at this Knowing itself.”
