Advaita program in different places in Scandinavia. More dates will come.

Advaita is a Sanskrit word meaning the Non-Dual. Advaita is a method for self-realisation.

The Non-Dual is often used as one of the countless words for Source.

Tibetan Buddhism calls Source “The Luminous Ground” or “Rigpa”. Zen calls it “The Buddha”.

All Mystery Schools are aiming at realizing this true reality, the Non-Dual.

It can be expressed in so many ways, keeping in mind that no words can really express it. It is like being a neutral awareness that permeates and makes up all experiences: perceptions, feelings and thoughts – all that the six senses can perceive (the mind is the sixth sense).

When we know it, we know that it is the most natural and truthful. To live in separation, in duality, is not true and therefore painful. That is the reason why most people feel a longing for something real; we know in the depth of our heart that something real is missing.

Advaita comes from India and is maybe older than even Buddhism. Advaita has been made known through Adi Shankara (788-820) and in the 20 century by Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj and Poonjaji. Also, Ramesh Balsekar and many of the present day teachers – like Isaac Shapiro and Gangaji – who are travelling the world, are coming from the path of Advaita.

Advaita belongs to the tradition that believes in the possibility of transcending the mind through wisdom and understanding.

In Advaita 1, we work with the fundamentals:

  1. Atman (the I) is Brahman (the Absolute)
  2. All is Brahman
  3. Maya (Appearance)
  4. Neti, Neti (Impermanence)
