    Hafiz ~ Love's Victory ~ Sufi Mystics

    Hafiz ~ Love's Victory ~ Sufi Mystics

    A reading of a selection of Hafiz's poems translated by Thomas Rain Crowe.  Persian lyric poet Hafiz (born Khwāja Šamsu d-Dīn Muḥammad Hāfez-e Šīrāzī) grew up in Shiraz. Very little is known about his life, but it is thought that he may have memorized the Qur’an after hearing his father recite passages. He is one of the most celebrated of the Persian poets, and his influence can be felt to this day. As the author of numerous ghazals expressing love, spirituality, and protest, he and his work continue to be important to Iranians, and many of his poems are used as proverbs or sayings.

    Ajahn Lee Breath and First Jhana

    Ajahn Lee Breath and First Jhana

    This is a guided meditation focusing on the breath and the first jhana based on the methods and teachings of Ajahn Lee. Translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.  Ajahn Lee (1907–1961) is regarded as one of the greatest teachers and meditation masters of the Thai Forest Tradition of the 20th century. Among the forest monks, he devised the most comprehensive meditation instructions, and composed the most detailed map of the jhānas. He was one of the first teachers to bring the teachings of the Forest Tradition to the mainstream of Thai society. He never spoke of his own meditative attainments, however it was widely discussed among his students that he may have had psychic powers.

    Kabir ~ Disappear into the air inside You ~ Sufi Mysticism - Hindu Bhakti

    Kabir ~ Disappear into the air inside You ~ Sufi Mysticism - Hindu Bhakti

    A reading of two Saint Kabir poems intended for contemplation and meditation. Translated by Robert Bly.  Though little is known of the life of the 15th-century Indian mystic and poet Kabir, it is believed he was born in or near Benares. He grew up in a family of Muslim weavers before becoming a disciple of the Hindu ascetic Ramananda. Kabir is considered both a Sufi and Brahmin saint. His poetry draws on both Hinduism and Islam, though he was critical of certain aspects of both faiths. Some of his verses are included in the compilation of Sikh scriptures known as the Adi Granth. His mystical poems are grounded in the details and earthly particulars of everyday life.

This channel is pure bliss. Thank you 🙏

Powerful, Gentle, Transcendent

These spoken texts will transport you to non-duality, or at least a glimpse of it. I’m astonished that nearly every master speaks of the same oneness albeit with slightly different cultural labels. The way the texts are read is perfect; the voice does justice to the words, which do justice to the pointers. Simply gorgeous listening.

Masterful!!!

I have come here from YouTube. A seeker for 30 years and a follower of Vedanta I have read just about every book and listened to every teacher. And yet Samaneri Jayasara has introduced me to new teachers and teachings that have blown my socks of. Her production, voice and curation are the BEST in this genre, by miles. Very soon she will have millions of followers, no question.
