thoughts dance their enticing moves
before my entranced inner sight
but the spell is broken
when I wonder
who is entranced …
memories beckon seductively
with all the luster they can manage
yet their shine is swallowed
in the light
behind my eyes
there is one dancer
I cannot resist
her only movement is utter stillness
I find no memory
in her transparent gaze
“Nirmala offers satsang in gratitude for the love and grace that flow through his teachers, Neelam and Adyashanti, and for the Truth brought to this world by Ramana Maharshi and H.W.L. Poonja. Advaita satsang is offered as a celebration of the possibility, in every moment, of recognizing the truth of who we are. Nirmala offers a unique vision and a gentle, compassionate approach, which adds to this rich tradition of inquiry into the truth of Being.” ~ excerpt from Nirmala’s website.
Here’s Adyashanti on Nirmala: “What is appealing about Nirmala is his humility and lack of pretense, which welcomes whatever arises within the field of experience. In the midst of this welcoming is always an invitation to inquire deeply within, to the core of who and what you are. Again and again, Nirmala points the questions back to the questioner and beyond to the very source of existence itself-to the faceless awareness that holds both the question and the questioner in a timeless embrace.” ~ excerpt from Nirmala’s website.
Above two paragraphs provide a short “BIO” for Nirmala, excerpted from his website, and are in lieu of our Nirmala’s Teacher page, which will be added shortly … and as is typical of our Teacher pages, it will provide a comprehensive view about Nirmala’s background, and teachings.
