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.”

THIS SIMPLE SEEING

October 24, 2017

Based on a series of talks from Satsang with Ananta, April through September 2017." What witnesses everything and Itself remains unchanging? This one sentence is more than enough, actually."

    With Integrity: What Does ‘I’ Mean for You?

    This is mainly what we are speaking about; mainly: What does ‘I’ represent for you? [Silence] What does ‘I’ represent for you? So, when [Sri Nisargadatta] Maharaj said ‘Integrity is very good’ this is what he meant. With integrity, true to your Heart, what does ‘I’ mean? [Silence] And if that ‘I’ still means something, …

    The Mind Is Not Designed to Trust

    Q: My mind doesn’t trust that without its control bad things will happen. A: Yes, the mind isn’t designed to trust, so the mind will always give you messages like ‘What will happen without your control?’ or ‘You better take charge of your life’ and all of these things. But it has given all these …

    The Expectation Has to Be Surrendered

    Life is always just life. We can say ‘Life is always perfect’ but actually the word ‘perfect’ has a wrong connotation at times. So, better to say ‘Life is just life’. Because when you say ‘perfect’ then you’re imagining some utopian sort of ideal. Life is always just life. But to suffer life, you have …

    Q: When I was very young, I feared the void I felt to be inside of me, not to be ‘me’. Therefore and thereafter, I started to collect dispositions and characters to build a ‘me’. I felt as a kid that I needed a character to function in the world. It is now returning around …

    So today, what are we doing? [Chuckles] Are we pretending to have the bondage problem and then working towards our freedom? Are we going to see that there is nobody that is bound; and yet play with bondage for a bit and then leave it? What is the other ‘seeker’ position? Are we going to …

    We just are Here. You are Here. All effort is imagined. For effort to want to get somewhere, you have to take a position. A concept has to come. The idea has to come: ‘I must find freedom. I must do something. I must become a better person. ‘I must be…., whatever.’ But without that, …

    How many of you See that nothing has ever happened to Awareness? [Silence] Then how come you feel that something has happened to you? [Silence] So, there must be a belief that I am something other than the Self, something other than this primal Witnessing. That’s why in the Upanishads they say ‘Just be the …

    I don’t feel like there is a greater blessing in this play than when we really look at the question ‘Who am I?’ Because when we look at the question ‘Who am I?’ we realize that ‘All of this that I was believing myself to be, I have never been that. All of these concepts, …

    Actually, sometimes we call Satsang ‘The process of going from the head to the Heart.’ But also, we can say that it is a process of going from the head, the mental interpretations, to our own recognition, our own insight. Because even what the mind is saying starts to feel like second-hand knowledge. So, don’t …
