Podcast Episode No. 187

Both pleasure and discomfort are normal aspects of spiritual life. If we run toward pleasure and avoid discomfort, we will never self-realize. If we deny pleasure and approach spiritual practice as only struggle and strife, we also create obstacles. A podcast from Satsang with Shambhavi Listen Now

Podcast Episode No. 185

There is no Guru without following. When we make contact with Guru—in the form of another human being, in the form of circumstance, in the form of the promptings of the wisdom heart—we can only relate to that true Guru by following. We use our freedom to responsively follow. Otherwise, the Guru function, while still guiding us, is doing so without our conscious participation. A podcast from Satsang with Shambhavi Listen Now
