    Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) ~ Serenity ~ Taoism

    Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) ~ Serenity ~ Taoism

    Chuang Tzu (Zhuangzi) was a Taoist sage, living sometime before 250 B.C. He is credited with writing- in part or in whole - a work known by his name, the Zhuangzi, which is one of the foundational texts of Taoism. The text is ranked among the greatest of literary and philosophical masterpieces that China has produced.  Its style is complex—mythical, poetic, narrative, humorous, indirect, and polysemic.  Much of the text of the Zhuangzi espouses a holistic philosophy of life, encouraging disengagement from the artificialities of socialization, and cultivation of our natural “ancestral” potencies and skills, in order to live a simple and natural, but full and flourishing life.

    The 24 Gurus of Dattatreya ~ Advaita-Vedanta

    The 24 Gurus of Dattatreya ~ Advaita-Vedanta

    A reading for meditation of the 24 Gurus of Dattatreya - translated by Pandit Rajmani Tigunait. 

    Dattatreya is considered to be the incarnation of the Trinity- Brahma, Vishnu and Siva – a Trimurti Avatar. The Philosophy propounded by Lord Dattatreya is found in the ‘Avadhuta Gita’ which is a Vedantic text expounding non-dualism. Dattatreya, in the eleventh chapter of Srimad Bhagavata lists his 24 Gurus and considers himself a simple student of the whole creation.  The young Dattatreya is famous in the Hindu texts as the one who started with nothing and without teachers, yet reached self-awareness by observing nature during his Sannyasi wanderings, and treating these natural observations as his twenty four teachers. This legend has been emblematic in the Hindu belief, particularly among artists and Yogis, that ideas, teachings and practices come from all sources, that self effort is a means to learning.

    A Self-Enquiry Meditation on the Nature of the Mind ~ The Flight of the Garuda - Lama Shabkar - Dzogchen

    A Self-Enquiry Meditation on the Nature of the Mind ~ The Flight of the Garuda - Lama Shabkar - Dzogchen

    This is meditation on the Nature of the Mind by Lama Shabkar taken from the text, "The Flight of the Garuda" - translated by Keith Dowman.  

    Shabkar Tsokdruk Rangdrol  (1781-1851) was a Tibetan Buddhist yogi and poet from Amdo. Shabkar's yogic and poetic skill is considered second only to Milarepa.  Shabkar begin his spiritual practice early, completing a one-year retreat at the age of 16, later becoming a Gelug monk at 20. Shabkar studied with masters of all major Tibetan Buddhist schools including Gelug and Nyingma, and received Dzogchen teachings from his main root guru Chögyal Ngakgi Wangpo. He spent years in solitary retreats in various caves, woods and mountains of Tibet.  Shabkar's works express non-sectarian ideals similar to those of the 19th century Rimé movement, even though he predates the movement by about three decades and never met with any of the Rime masters from Kham.

    Ajahn Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu ~ Nibbana for Everyone ~ Theravada Forest Tradition

    Ajahn Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu ~ Nibbana for Everyone ~ Theravada Forest Tradition

    A reading for meditation of Ajahn Buddhadasa's teaching on the immanence of Nibbana - translated by Santikaro.  Buddhadāsa Bhikkhu (Servant of the Buddha) went forth as a bhikkhu (Buddhist monk) in 1926, at the age of twenty. After a few years of study in Bangkok, which convinced him “purity is not to be found in the big city,” he was inspired to live intimately with nature in order to investigate Buddha-Dhamma in study and practice. Thus, he established Suan Mokkhabālārama (The Grove of the Power of Liberation) in 1932 near his hometown of Pum Riang (now in Chaiya District).  Ajahn Buddhadāsa worked painstakingly to establish and explain the correct and essential principles of what he called “pristine Buddhism” or “the heart of Buddha-Dhamma,” that is, the original awakening realizations of Lord Buddha before it was buried under commentaries, ritualism, clerical politics, and the like. His work was based in extensive research of the Pāli texts (Canon and commentary), especially of Buddha's discourses (suttas), followed by personal experiment and practice with these teachings. He then taught whatever he could say truly quenches dukkha (dissatisfaction, distress, suffering). His goal was to produce a complete set of references for present and future research and practice. His approach was always scientific, straight-forward, and practical. (Extract of biography taken from Suan Mokkh website - https://www.suanmokkh.org/buddhadasa)

Superb!

I’ve recently had the good fortune of coming into contact with this podcast and I’m blessed to have done so. Truly I thank you.

So good for Busy Brain

There’s something about these meditations that just work so well for me when my monkey brain is going a million miles a minute. That whole “ugh! I don’t WANNA meditate” feeling is perfectly remedied by this podcast. I just flip it on with no Pomp or circumstance, no meditation cushion, no mudras, but somehow it arrests me into that state regardless (and pretty consistently). Thanks for the inner peace. Namaste 💗

Simply the best!

I started listening to Wisdom of the Masters on YouTube several months ago and I fell in love with the delivery, recitations, meditations, and of course the voice of Samaneri 💚! I just discovered that it’s available on Apple Podcasts 2 days ago and I started listening here immediately! I’m very happy it’s on this platform and recommend listening to Samaneri to anyone serious about seeking the true Nature of our Being. You’re guaranteed heart stirrings and deep contemplations and deep deep emotions and overwhelming love for All.
