BOOKS BY ANANTA Welcome to Satsang with Ananta

BOOK 1

ARE YOU AWARE NOW

March 19, 2016

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.”

BOOK 2

CAN YOU STOP BEING

March 19, 2016

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’.

BOOK 3

DONT BELIEVE YOUR NEXT THOUGHT

March 19, 2016

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.”

BOOK 4

AWARENESS ITSELF IS AWARE OF AWARENESS

April 1, 2016

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’.”

BOOK 5

BEYOND ALL CONCEPTS

May 24, 2016

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.”

BOOK 6

FREEDOM IS NOW

July 13, 2016

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.

BOOK 7

WHO IS AWARE OF AWARENESS

August 26, 2016

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.”

    You Are Unlimited If You Don’t Refer to Concepts

    Q: There are so many different life forms right now. At what stage does this thought start? Amoeba…? Ananta: I would say…, it’s tough because there are various studies on this also actually and for a long time the presumption has been that only this human form has these thought patterns but this is completely …

Consciousness is tasting itself if all the various aspects. It’s tasting Itself as time and space, as the objects within time and space. And one of the objects …

    A Metaphor Parable

    I want to use a metaphor. Suppose what you find for yourself is that there is an infinite house, housed with Knowing. (This is a metaphor.) You find that there is a house which has no beginning and no end. Now, within this house suddenly there appears somebody who pretends to come and says “Namaste. …

    THAT is Unchanging

    Q:  If it is all Consciousness, why is (it) making (it) so difficult to realize itself?’ A: Now ‘difficulty’ is from the perspective of Consciousness? Or from the perspective of Individuality? Q: Individuality. A: So, from the perspective of Individuality it is difficult. Now, from the perspective of Consciousness, is it difficult or easy? So, …

    I Just Am

    The purpose of the mind is to convince you of your limitation. Some great philosopher said that ‘To start thinking is to start undermining yourself’. I never understood this initially. Only now I realize what it means. ‘To start thinking is to undermine yourself’. What does it mean? It means to really pretend as if …

    I have a new ninja sword. I don’t know how many of you have experienced this one. I feel like we have. The new ninja sword is this one, where I say that: If you do not use any phenomenal appearance, any phenomenal appearance, to make a report about yourself, to have any meaning for …

    Neutrality of Beingness

    How do we speak about this neutrality? Because to the mind it’s the most boring topic! I was just saying that to speak of neutrality is actually impossible in a way. But even if we were to try, to the mind it’s unfathomable. Anything that the mind interprets is in the realm of opposites. If …

    Where Do You Speak From?

    So, what is the paradigm or perspective we want to start with? Almost every Satsang, at the beginning of every Satsang, this is the invitation; where do you want to begin? Do you want to begin first to seemingly-step away from the now, and pick up a limited concept of myself and then speak from …

    Okay, suppose that for today we could not make a phenomenal report about our self. What does it mean by phenomenal report? First layer is the seeming outside world. ‘This is what is happening in my family…’ Suppose we couldn’t say anything about this world, this phenomenal world that appears and disappears; about the people …

    His question is: “How should one deal with pain in the body?” So, I am going to take a bit of a longer route to answer this question, because it is very important for those of you who have been in Satsang for a while to get a little bit more clarity on our position …

    You Are Never Really Over-shadowed by the Mind

    Q: [Paraphrased since question is somewhat inaudible] Is more practice needed? Sometimes I feel that the mind is over-shadowing. A: Firstly, know that you are never really over-shadowed by the mind. The mind is just one aspect of your Consciousness. The mind is also an aspect of you which Consciousness itself has designed so that …

    So, what´s happened is that we´ve taken that which is central to our existence, we´ve taken that to be an entity, like a person. So, all this process of Satsang we are just clarifying: ‘What is it that is at the center of my existence?’ Is that personal? And we´ve been trained and taught by …

    Now, can we walk one more step together and look at: What is aware of this existence? What is aware that I exist? [Silence] Don’t expect to see anything at all. The recognition will not be visual. It will not be perceptual at all. Don’t expect any phenomenal answer. What is it that is aware? …

    Is There Any Boundary to Existence?

    There is this favorite question which is ‘How do I distinguish between the mind and my intuition?’ And I´ve shared that the mind is always wanting something, wanting to grasp at something, is in a rush; its purpose is for something feel special or to protect itself. It is very me-centric. And this intuitive presence …

    Very good question. There’s a quote he’s referring to where it is said that ‘The question is ‘Who is aware?’ …, if this question is rightly asked then it can liberate One’. So, he says, “What do you mean by ‘rightly’?” Very good question. ‘Rightly’ in every inquiry only means one thing, which is to …

    So, what is it that we are exploring again? We’re looking at: What is the core of my Being, at the centrality of my existence? Is there an individual entity there? Or is this existence the Presence of Consciousness or God-Itself? So, what should one do if it is presumed that there is an individual …
