WHAT IS ENLIGHTENMENT?
Enlightenment is the cessation of suffering
Enlightenment is the cessation of the illusion of separation
Enlightenment is the cessation of all division
Enlightenment is an awakening to the causeless blissfulness of consciousness
Enlightenment is an awakening to an equanimity that challenges cannot disturb
Enlightenment is an awakening to a realm beyond the past and future, beyond here and here after, beyond me and you.
IS ENLIGHTENMENT RELEVANT TODAY?
Or is it something that was of significance only in the past?
Or to some people who are disillusioned with life?
Or to those who are against organised society and Civilisation?
Lots of young people, students, home makers, business leaders and CEOs of companies world over come to the Ekam Enlightenment Festival.
To us enlightenment is not a journey to be pursued at the end of one’s life. It has to be a way of living from very early years.
Ekam Enlightenment Festival is a powerful field of consciousness you enter.
When you immerse for 7 days in this Field of Enlightenment, there are moments when your ordinary incessant noisy thinking mind stops.
You enter the realm of Enlightenment or Mukti or states beyond the self.
During these states a massive jolt of spiritual current enters your nervous system, your brain and your heart.
Such a state opens up your brain into a new burst of creativity, your heart to a state of immense connection with life.
You get out of the rut of your old thinking minds, and new paradigms open up. New solutions emerge.
If we wish to create a beautiful world for us, for our children and their children, we have to go beyond our limited self; we have to live and act from a profound sense of our interconnection and oneness.
And we have to help our children awaken to this. This awakening is quintessential to humanity’s future.
Ekam Enlightenment Festival is to give life back to this massive vision of enlightenment. For these states alone can serve as our guiding lights for the future.
This would be a massive movement in human consciousness towards enlightenment where we come together as one and reclaim our lost vision and collectively move towards a greater destiny.
As human beings we are endowed with brains and consciousness that is capable of experiencing states beyond our struggling selves. Unfortunately civilisation has excessively activated those parts of our brain that lead to incessant inner noise. But this noise can be silenced. And we can awaken to the true potential of our consciousness. For this to happen, you need 3 sacred elements to come together.
3 SACRED ELEMENTS
The first sacred element is a powerful field in which to meditate.
When you enter a powerful force field in consciousness
as the one generated in Ekam, you will open up to enlightened states
that takes you beyond your limited self.
The second sacred element is being in the presence of someone
who can impact others consciousness by transmitting that state.
As Sri Preethaji & Sri Krishnaji move into the state of Ekam or Non-duality,
these powerful states are transmitted to seekers who meditate with them.
The third sacred element is the incredibly powerful processes
built on the science of consciousness that act like portals to go beyond the self.
When you experience powerful enlightened states of consciousness, they become impressions on your brain, and your nervous system
which, thereafter become compasses to navigate the waters of life.
Enlightenment cannot be attained through individual effort alone. It has to be a collective movement. We invite you to become part of
this sacred mission. Let us move towards our greater destiny. Let us move towards an enlightened way of life.
ANANDA – STATE OF BLISS
Ananda is derived from the root word Aa.. which means from all sides. Nanda means joy. It is a spiritual state of being in which joy pours into you from all sides.
Every experience of life feels blissful. Seeing, listening, talking, walking, solitude, relating – every experience is tinted with the quality of bliss.
Your consciousness is like sponge that soaks up bliss from the universe.
MAHA KARUNA – STATE OF GREAT COMPASSION
Maha Karuna means the great quivering of the heart to a being’s pain. In this state of consciousness there arises a natural urge to end suffering- either of yourself or of another.
You gaze deeply into the nature of all suffering and recognise the pain of all beings in your own heart and see your pain in all beings.
You awaken to the oneness of all human experiences.
STHITHA PRAJNA – STATE OF WITNESS
Sthitha Prajna means a state of unwavering wisdom. In this magnificent state of consciousness you are unperturbed by the movement of thought or the movement of life.
You are an observer, a witness to the flow of life- neither averse to any experience nor craving to hold on to any experience. You are in a state of equanimity.
TAT TVAM ASI – STATE OF THOU ART THAT
TatTvamAsi means You are That. It is a glorious state of non-dual consciousness in which you go beyond body identification, mind identification and past identification.
You go beyond all limiting mind projected definitions, to a state of being one. You are the tree.
You are the sound of the bell that is heard across the valley. You are the footstep. You are the wind that blows over the waves. You are all.
SAKSHATKARA – STATE OF COSMIC CONSCIOUSNESS
Sakshatkara means I am the infinite, ever expanding source. This explosive enlightened state of
consciousness is one in which the individual self realises its inseparability from the cosmic self or the ever expanding universal self.
It is an enlightened state of consciousness in which you are all forms and the source behind all forms. You are the form and the formless. You are all existents and beyond all existence.
