Touching Enlightenment | October 15, 2014

My sense is that there is a very real problem among Western Buddhist practitioners. We are attempting to practice meditation and to follow a spiritual path in a disembodied state, and our practice is therefore doomed to failure. The full benefits and fruition of meditation cannot be experienced or enjoyed when we are not grounded in our bodies.

"The mantra Prabhu Ap Jago ​​is a ripe fruit from the tree of consciousness. Its power is impressive when it is sung from the heart. It is a fragrance of the Being, imbued with notes of compassion. This is a prayer that comes from the depths of one’s emotional center. It is a request for God to awaken in everyone, everywhere, and to illuminate the game of joy."
Sri Prem Baba
