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.”

    The One Self is Seeing All Things

    Q: Namaste. In deep sleep, there is only Awareness; Awareness aware of himself and also aware of no-thing. And in deep sleep, there is no world. When I wake up the world comes again. So, Awareness needs my body/mind to see the world, no? A: Doesn’t need. But it plays ‘as if’. Awareness doesn’t need …

    Your Unchanging Truth

    All that has happened during this retreat is that I have reminded you that You are the Self. This is your unchanging Truth. The dropping of the pretense only means that ‘I have considered myself to be something else. I have only always been the Self.’ Hopefully, we have demolished some ideas about getting to …

    Q: You gave me some ‘homework’ Sunday night, and it turned my world upside down. When I came Sunday night (evening) as I looked in, I could drop behind my personality, I could drop into a deeper space and drop into the Witness. Beautiful experiences that I’ve had. But you asked me a very simple …

    Today is a very important day; very important [Chuckles] because what happened is, first thing in the morning when I woke up, and I had a meeting with a very enlightened Being. It was very beautiful, very beautiful. So, I said, “Why just me? Why don’t you come and meet the entire Sangha?” So, this …

Anyway, it’s a popular notion. It is to bring some rest to our mind, the notion of pre-destiny. Because that would mean Consciousness …

    A: You said that until 2009 there was great belief that everything is God’s will, everything is God’s grace. Then in 2009 an event happened where you felt like ‘No, this could not have been God’s will, this couldn’t have been God’s grace.’ So, you said that ‘I have to take back charge of my …

    Insight is Truer than Clarity about Concepts

    Q: When you earlier said ‘I Am’ some obsessive thought came to me and it doesn’t leave me, that ‘I Am’ is somehow…, it’s just ‘I’…, there is no ‘am’. When you said ‘Self-awareness’ also; there is no ‘Awareness’…, there is just ‘Self”. A: Sometimes it is the words which could seem to be causing …

    Empty of Concepts, Not Empty of Experiencing

    What I’m speaking of actually is the emptiness which is empty of concepts about yourself; not empty of experiencing. Because in this realm of experiences, when it is there, experiences will come. We don’t have to run away from any experience. We are empty of all notions about ourselves. Then you see that this dynamic …

    What you are now is what Bhagavan [Sri Ramana Maharshi] was. And he is constantly saying the same thing. I know to the mind it can sound like blasphemy or arrogance; it is not. Somebody asked him ‘What is the difference between me and you?’ He says ‘I stay with what I see myself to …

    When you say ‘I’…, what do you represent? Say ‘I’. What is that representing? Okay, let’s try again. Say ‘I’. [Sangha says ‘I’] Is it representing a group of sensations? Is it representing an idea you might have about yourself? It can represent all of these things. We are just playfully looking at what the …

    A: Suppose you had nothing to do about it…, if a feeling of some constriction is there, it is there. You noticed it and that is more than enough. Q: Okay. A: Nothing has to happen because of this. So, to take this metaphor even further, whatever is appearing in this body now has not …

    The Self is your natural state. (It is not a ‘state’ actually. We can use that term.) It is naturally what You Are. Now, how many steps do you have to walk to get to it? And even if you walk a few steps, can you lose it? [Silence] That’s the beautiful thing about this. Where ever …
