Sex Is Good. Pleasure Is Good

For over 20 years Pala and Al have used their relationship as their spiritual practice and the primary form of that practice has been sacred sex (Tantric and Taoist). Tantra is a unique spiritual path because it insists that direct personal experience with the Divine, knowing that you are God/Goddess-Shiva/Shakti; merging ultimately with the Creator–enlightenment, is possible for any ordinary man and woman who have the courage to commit to each other, and undertake the effort to learn how to create love for a lifetime together.

On the Tantric spiritual path, you do not escape the body and the world. The body and ordinary reality are not your enemies, but rather your freedoms. In Tantra you use your body, mind, heart and soul, as well as the entire world known to you through your faculties of perceiving, feeling and thinking, as important, essential and necessary tools to help you remember who you really are, to remember your divine nature, to awaken and to realize enlightenment.

At Sexy Spiritual Relationships membership website we will help you learn how to create three important kinds of sex.

–    FRICTION sex in which bodies rub against each other with
pleasure, desire, delight, and passion.

–    ENERGY sex in which two hearts open to welcome and embrace giving
and receiving a sublime, warm, safe and caring love.

–    SOUL sex in which the boundaries that normally separate you from
each other dissolve completely, so that you cannot tell where one body ends and the other begins, and you find yourself wondering, "Whose orgasm was that anyway?" In soul sex, two merge to become one. This is sexual/spiritual ecstasy–the reuniting of sex and spirit, heaven and earth.

Al and Pala

"Al and Pala teach couples how to have the best sex of their lives."
Discovery Channel – "The Sex Files"

Sex is good. Pleasure is good. It is almost guaranteed that if you are regularly giving and receiving pleasure and having great sex with someone you love, that you will be a happy person.

If you are going to be good at something, sex is a good thing to be good at. Why settle for being an average lover when with a bit of guidance, direction and learning, you could be a great one?

When couples get the sex right, most of the other problems they have to deal with become much more manageable. Most people can handle any stress as long as they are regularly receiving the nourishment of sensual and sexual touching.

Having orgasms, including multiple orgasms (men and women) is one of the best ways to feel good about yourself, to gain personal confidence, to give your immune system a super boost, to unlock your creativity, to know absolutely without a doubt that you are accepted, desired and wanted; that you belong in this world, to feel completely comfortable in your own skin, to be full of energy, passion and enthusiasm for living.

Al experienced enlightenment in January 2008, a culmination of almost 40 years of spiritual quest. It was transmitted into Pala within minutes. This is what we are naming Enlightenment for Two(TM).

Our relationship has been our spiritual practice for over 20 years that we have been together, and the primary form of that spiritual practice has been sacred sexuality (Tantric and Taoist). This is a unique spiritual path because two people can undertake the journey together, compared with most other spiritual practices that are done alone.

Sexy Spiritual Relationships
membership website is our primary vehicle through which we are reaching out to the world with the good news: Enlightenment for Two(TM) can be for you. We will do everything we can to share with you (accurately, simply, and with humility) the story of our spiritual quest, our illumination and realization of enlightenment. We will endeavor to share with you: 1) a description and discussion of what enlightenment is as well as our personal account of the experience; 2) any methods we used that we believe to have been significant in helping us to awaken; 3) suggest specific actions, practices and exercises by which you may awaken to your own experience of enlightenment.

all good things,
Al and Pala

Creating love that lasts a lifetime together is the gold in the Olympics of life. Relationship happiness is not that difficult to create. You do need to learn a few things, and perhaps unlearn a few other things, but of course you can do this–anyone who really wants to learn how to be in a relationship that satisfies through and through, and lasts a lifetime can do so.

What you need is a relationship tool box offering a selection of tools, practices, techniques and methods with which you will, together–in loving partnership, construct your relationship arc, a sanctuary, a solid foundation from which you can engage the outside world; feeling safe, secure and confident regardless of the challenges you face in your work, community, and extended family.

At our new Sexy Spiritual Relationships membership website you will find a necessary, complete and sufficient toolbox with which any couple can create love that lasts a lifetime together.

all good things,
Al and Pala

Introduction To Sant Mat, The Path Of The Masters

By James Bean http://blog.360.yahoo.com/santmat_mystic?list=1

Below are the Five Precepts of Sant Mat (Moral Requirements for Initiation), On Initiation and an Introduction to the Path, Introductory Meditation Instructions for Spiritual Seekers Not Yet Initiated into Sant Mat Meditation, a List of Worldwide Sant Mat Yahoo Groups, and a Chart of the Inner Planes.     Inner Light and Sound Meditation, also known as Surat Shabd Yoga, is the spiritual or meditation practice of an ancient Eastern Philosophy known as: Sant Mat, Radhasoami, the Path of Guru Kabir, Path of the Masters, The Mystics of the East — the Sant Tradition of India, a living School of Spirituality. Sant Mat is a path of mysticism (Inner Light and Sound) as well as Bhakti and Prem (Love and Devotion) for the Beloved.

Key Words include: Santmat, Sant Mat, Kabir, Radha Soami, Radhasoami, Satsang, Spiritual Science or Science of the Soul, Gnosis, Gnostic, Gnosticism, Nada Yoga, Hinduism, Mystics, Mysticism, Mystic Poetry, God, and Bhakti, also Vegan, Vegetarian.  

Sant Mat is a God-Centered Path of Bhakti and Prem — Love and Devotion for the Beloved (God), also called: The Formless God (Nirguna), The Nameless One (Anami Purush), The Soundless State (Anadi), The Lord of the Soul (RadhaSoami), The Ocean of Love (Anurag Sagar), Oneness and All-Consciousness (Kaivalya).    

On the Path of Love (Bhakti Marg)

Guru Kabir says: How could the love between Thee and me sever?

As the leaf of the lotus abides on the water: so thou art my Lord, and I am Thy servant.

As the night-bird Chakor gazes all night at the moon: so Thou art my Lord and I am Thy servant.

From the beginning until the ending of time, there is love between Thee and me; and how shall such love be extinguished?

Kabir says: "As the river enters into the Ocean, so my heart touches Thee." (Songs of Kabir, Rabindranath Tagore)

Introductory or Interim Meditation Instructions — A Convenient Method For Those Not Formally Initiated Yet Into Surat Shabd Yoga Mediation: Inner Light and Sound

"Meditation is the process of withdrawing the attention from the world outside, and focusing it at the seat of the soul in the body, behind and between the eyebrows. This point is known as the inner eye, third eye, the single eye, shiv netra, tisra til, or the divya chakshu. In order to withdraw our attention and focus it on this Point, mind must be controlled and stilled.

"Sit in one pose, and move not your head, limbs or eyes. Sit straight but relaxed with no tension in the body below. Sit still, please. To be still does not mean moving!"

"Close your eyes as in sleep, and look sweetly, lovingly, intently into the middle of the darkness lying in front of you. You will see a dark veil. That which sees the dark veil within, without the help of your physical eyes, is the inner eye. Do not put any strain on your physical eyes, nor turn them upwards, for that will result in headache or heat. Pay no attention to the breathing process… let it go on naturally.

"There are two currents working in the body; one of motor-currents or prana or the vital-airs, and the other of surat, or attention, which gives us the sense of feeling. The Saints do not touch the prana currents which govern breathing, circulation of blood, growing of hair and nails. The pranic system of breath-control is the way of yogis and not that of the Saints. The Saints’ way is to concentrate surat or attention at the Single or third eye while mentally repeating the mantra of five charged names which act as an "open sesame" to the higher planes.

"Those who are initiated, repeat the Five Charged Words, one by one, very slowly, mentally, internally, at intervals, so that your inner eye is not disturbed. Those who have not been initiated, just sit in sweet remembrance of God ….. repeating with the tongue of thought any name of God or Saint which you hold dear."
[For example:
Ram,
Hari,
HU {pronounced "HOOOOO"},
AUM {pronounced "OOOMMM"},
Allah,
Yeshua,
Radhaswami {Ra-da-Swa-MMMEEEEEE},
or some other sacred name]

"As you look within, you will see a sky, or blue sky: If you look minutely into it, you will find it studded with stars, or you may see pinpoints of Light. If so, try to locate the big star out of them, and fix your whole attention on that. Then you may see the inner sun or moon. If so, focus all your attention into the middle; it will break into pieces, and you will cross it. Beyond you will see the radiant form of the Master or his Master… "

"…Become the eye itself. Go on looking constantly without a break…..Any effort on your part stands in the way; let yours be an effortless effort, and you will find that your soul will be withdrawn from the body….."  (Kirpal Singh)

"Those who enshrine the Beloved in their hearts have both worlds at their command. Lovers remain completely intoxicated in the ecstasy of their love for the Beloved. They offer their souls to the Beloved while still living, and thus immortalize themselves in this life and in the hereafter." (Hazrat Sultan Bahu, Sufi Master)

"How can one sit so still, repeat only holy names and think of God constantly? ‘By falling in love,’ Mataji answered serenely. ‘Because when one is truly in love nothing but the Beloved can enter one’s mind. So the secret of Surat Shabd Yoga and of mysticism,’ she goaded, ‘is not necessarily practice and more practice, but love. To be so devoted to one’s Lord that nothing can stand in the way — this and nothing else is the truth of Sant Mat’". (Yogani Mata Ji, Sant Mat Master, quoted in the book, Enchanted Land, MSAC Philosophy group)

The living Master said to his students: "I will give you what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, what no hand has touched, and what has never occurred to the human mind." (Jesus – Yeshua, Gospel of Thomas, Nag Hammadi Library of Egypt, one of the Gnostic Gospels or lost books of the bible, a contemplative gospel for mystics)

Initiation into Inner Light & Sound Meditation (Surat Shabd Yoga), The Yoga of the Audible Life Stream

In the Sant tradition the complete methods of meditation practice are communicated at the time of Initiation (Diksha) by a living Master (Sant Satguru) or a representative of a Master. A living Teacher, being fully acquainted with the ‘landscape’ of Inner Space, is able to impart to initiate-candidates valuable guidance on how to safely make the journey of ascension to the Inner Regions during meditation practice within. This kind of spiritual transmission and the details of Surat Shabd Yoga practice are not found in books, old scriptures of the past, and are not for sale, but are given freely to seekers by a living Teacher.

The Mystic Journey of the Soul Back to Oneness

"The individual Soul has descended from the higher worlds [realms of the Divine] to this city of illusion [bodily existence]. It has descended from the Soundless State to the essence of Sound, from that Sound to Light, and finally from the realm of Light to the realm of Darkness. The qualities (natural tendencies) of the sense organs draw us upward (by withdrawing consciousness) from the darkness to the realms of Light and Sound. In other words, to go inward from the external sense organs to the depth of the inner Self. The natural tendencies of the Soul (Atman) are to move from outward to inward. The Current of consciousness which is dispersed in the nine gates of the body and the nine senses must be collected at the tenth gate (the sixth chakra, the Third Eye Bindu, Center between the eyebrows). Therein lies the path for our return. This is the act of leaving the gates of the sense organs and becoming established in the soul. …. We travel back from the realm of Darkness to the realm of Light, from the Light to divine Sound, and from the realm of Sound to the Soundless State [the Ocean of Love and All-consciousness]. This is turning back. This is what dharma or religion really intends to teach us and it is the essence of dharma. (Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj)

Masters say: "An intense longing to meet the Lord during one’s lifetime is the first and foremost qualification for Initiation. ‘Seek, and ye shall find’, is the principle."

At the time of Initiation one vows to practice meditation each day. The spiritual path is a life-long commitment.

The Frog In The Well – Another Version Of Plato’S Cave?

There were two frogs.

One frog lived in the sea. He knew vastness, openness and fathomlessness. He was so used to bigness that the sea is, that no smallness could trap his attention.

The other frog lived in a well, not far from the sea. But he knew not what sea was. He had never seen it—not even heard of it. In his most wildest of imaginations, if at all he ever imagined, the sea was an extended well—or at the most, a ‘part’ of his well, maybe from ‘this end to that’.

Both the frogs lived in different worlds, though they lived so close by. One day, however, they both met. They tried to speak on common lines, but their conversation could not make much headway. They both talked different languages: the sea-frog spoke of vastness of the sea, the well-frog insisted on the ‘vastness’ of his well.

The sea-frog wondered and smiled, ‘How could the well-frog compare his little well to the vast expanse of the ocean!’ To him, even the very idea of it was ridiculous, or at the most, sheer amusement. ‘The sea and a well, where is even the possibility of a comparison?’ he pondered.

The well-frog on the other hand, wondered: ‘How could there be anything larger, bigger, than my well? How could one trifle with the vastness of my well?’ He surmised, after he heard the sea-frog describing the sea, that the sea-frog must be a little out of his mind, or else, how could he talk like that? Can a well have an equivalent, a match?

The sea-frog understood where the difficulty lay. But how could he convince his fellow frog of the existence of the sea? He pitied that his fellow frog never went out of his well, and had remained so small and narrow in his world-view.

The well-frog lived a cosy and protected life, but at times he felt something was missing in his life, though he could not figure out what it was. He had all that he needed, but there came to him, now and then, a desire to know if there was anything beyond his well. He often recalled the sea-frog’s description of sea, something much bigger than his well. Many times he planned to undertake a journey, but rarely did his enthusiasm sustain. His desire to know what lay beyond lacked strength and steadiness.

Then, one day, he knew not how, he climbed out of his well, and began his journey towards the sea—the place of his dreams. What pushed him out of his well, and how he could manage to climb out, he could not understand, but he was happy he was out.

The journey to the sea, however, was far from being easy and smooth. He went along his path, but at times he slipped off the surface and at other times, his little feet got stuck in the sand. There were moments when he was not sure whether he was going in the right direction. It was a challenging experience—frightening and satisfying by turns. The journey was so long, arduous and tedious, that he wondered whether there was anything called the sea—until he reached the sea.

Having reached the seashore, he had nothing more to ask. He had no doubts, no enquiries, no complaints, no regrets.

He stood speechless; he knew the sea-frog was right.

Words Of Light And Love From Various Masters Of The East

"Repeat the Name of your Beloved, day and night, again and again. With care in thought, word and deed, you will cross to the other shore." — Dadu

Very exalted is the status of the Sat Guru and very sublime his religion. He has shown the Inaccessible Region. The soul ascends to the gateway of Sat Lok and witnesses a spectacle which is beyond the reach and comprehension of ascetics. Every day she visits the region of Shyam Set, i. e., the Third Eye Center. She sees the path in the company of her friends (the senses of perception) and, ascending above, gets a close view of the region. She is dazed on seeing the refulgence of the Beloved. Her attention remains riveted on Him, and she is oblivious of her body and mind. All the barriers on the way to the Beloved are removed. She quickly ascends one mansion after another. She rids herself of all her troubles by being baptised at the Ghat (bathing place) of Triveni. Says Tulsi, from the time she became acquainted with the Beloved she, enjoying the bliss of mansions after mansions, reaches her Beloved Lord.
— Param Sant Tulsi Sahib  

I have found a Sea of Love, an inexhaustible flood;
I have opened a treasure of spiritual knowledge,
it diffuses the lustre of a million suns,
arisen in thy worshipper’s souls.
— Sant Tukarama  

He has awaited me for countless ages.
Yet I did not know the bliss that was
     so near to me, for my love was not
     yet awake.
But now, my Lover has made known
     to me the meaning of the note that
     struck my ear:
Now, my good fortune is come.
Kabir says: "Behold! how great is
     my good fortune! I have received
     the unending caress of my Beloved!"
— Guru Kabir  

Let them try to imprison Him in temple, mosque and church!
The seeing eye finds the Beloved’s signs in every mote.   Very near your heart are seekers of your Vision;
Those who look at the surface are exiled from
the Beloved’s Light.
What can I say of the grace He showers on me within?
Darshan, the moment I close my eyes, the Beloved’s
Light begins.
— Sant Darshan

Singh, Love’s Last Madness, Hohm Press   Begin meditation with internally chanting or repeating the Guru-mantra-incantation (the charged words given by the Guru). And then try to visualize the radiant form or image of the Satguru in the still darkness of the inner sky (with eyes closed). Follow that with focusing your attention at the seat of the soul within, i.e. at the Third Eye or the Inner Eye or the Til Dwaar, by making the two streams of consciousness in your two eyes converge in a Point.   When the two currents of consciousness meet in a Point, Divine Light appears within. Then, practice Surat Shabd Yoga (Yoga of Divine Sound) i.e., try to shift your attention to listening to the Divine Sounds or myriads of melodies (Anahad Naad) ringing inside. Listening to the Divine Sound destroys all the perversions, agitations and fickleness of the mind.   Ascending beyond or transcending myriads of sounds, try to identify and tune in to the Quintessential Unstruck Melody, called "Saar Shabd" or "Anaahat Naad" which alone is capable of taking you and merging you into oneness with the Supreme Lord; this is the ultimate deliverance, emancipation, welfare, or liberation.
— Couplets of Swami Sant Sevi Ji Maharaj  

The Glittering Point between the two eyebrows [third eye center] is visible,
Dear ones! Closing your eyelids, try to see,
Let the two currents of Light converge at the Central Point of the eyebrows,
Fix your gaze and cross your bodily sphere and enter the egg of the universe;
The inner Sky, studded with Stars, looks so wonderful,
Light, like the earthen lamp, is visible that eliminates the darkness of the closed eyes,
The incomparable Moonlight, unique in itself is spread in all corners;
And the Light of the young Sun also radiates beautifully,
Surat [soul], with its spiritual vision, catches the multiple Sounds without being impaired,
O individual souls! Catching these Sounds with Surat-like rope,
Walk along the final abode, which is the Real Home;
Mehi has revealed this mystery, the Quintessential One,
One, who serves Guru without any guile, has no difficulty in reaching the Real Home.   Without gazing downward, upward, leftward, rightward or backward,
Look ahead, closing both your eyes and joining the two currents exactly in the middle of the two eyes [third eye],
Immersing yourself in the blaze of the Shining Star and watching the scenes of the Sphere of Light,
Fly in the inner firmament like a bird, and perching there on the Luminous Point,
Catch the Quintessential Sound among the multiple sounds and glide like a fish,
O mind!  Flying like the bird and swimming like the fish,
Your mind is absorbed in its own sphere,
Surat alone mounts on the Egg of Brahma,
Finally, catching the Ceaseless Primal Sound, Surat [the soul] listens to it,
The Sound of Creation enrapturing is so very intense,
Mehi says, with the help of the Central Sound (Naad) in the lower sphere,
Catch the Central Sounds of the higher spheres and finally grip the Quintessential One,
Thus grasping the Sound, that is, the Quintessential One, cross this sea-like world.
— The Padavali of Maharishi Mehi Paramahansa Ji Maharaj  

It does not matter if your bhakti is imperfect.
Perform bhakti! Radhasoami [the Lord of the Soul]
graciously declares that you should perform bhakti
in whichever way you can. Fear not. He will grant
you the Treasure of Love. You will be a recipient
of the Gift of Love.
— Swami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry, Vol 2  

I penetrated the Eye Center and perceived
the Light within.
Darkness has vanished,
And the sun has burst forth
in full splendor.   So long as the soul knows not itself,
The brilliance of the sun cannot be seen.   Says Tuka, I see my true self and the Lord
Pervade the whole creation as one effulgence.
— Sant Tukarama  

INNER EXPERIENCE – THE DOOR WITHIN  

Through the Eye, my vision has risen to
Daswandwar,
And my soul has cast off its coverings.   Firmly established at the Tenth Door,
I adore my Master’s Radiant Form,
which I recognize by His grace.   The bubble of illusion has been pricked,
The Almighty, Merciful Lord has revealed
Himself.   In the blissful state of fulfillment,
Tuka, without hands, clings to His feet.
— Sant Tukarama  

THE SOUND CURRENT, MUSIC OF THE CREATOR  

Tuka is absorbed in the surging wave
of Sound Divine;
Its resplendence spreads through his
innermost being.
The Lord has made His home in me,
The lamp of eternal Light has been
kindled.
The all-pervading Sound, O Tuka, is
the Lord Himself.
— Sant Tukarama  

Such is the peculiar efficacy
of the Path of Love and Devotion
that if you adopt it,it will
transport you to the Reservoir
of Ambrosia. In the Source or
Fountain, i.e., in Radhaswami
Dham [the Eighth Heaven], there
is absolutely no trace of maya
[illusion]. There it is all love
and love alone. It is an immense
Reservoir of Love, having no
beginning and no end.
— Swami Ji Maharaj, Sar Bachan Radhasoami Poetry, Vol I  

Can one be entangled in the mire of
Illusion
When the Name of the Lord is constantly
on his lips?   One who ceaselessly meditates on Him,
While walking, talking, eating or sleeping,
While engaged in worldly duties,
The Lord is with him at all times.   Repeat constantly the Name of the Lord,
And know that devotion is indispensable
for deliverance.
Thus the devotee becomes the Lord
Himself,
And thus has the Lord become Tuka.  

Such is God’s Name
that it heals the disease of the world.
Whosoever repeats the Lord’s Name
while engaged in earthly duties,
remains ever in a blissful state of divine communion.
One absorbed in the Lord’s Name, O Tuka,
has truly attained liberation while living.
— Sant Tukarama  

Recognize the Path to your Beloved, O travelers
and take the route of the anguished lover in separation.   Keep the Master’s grace in your thoughts,
and reflect on his pure teachings.   Develop love and devotion with endearment,
and keep the thought of the Creator always before you.   Try to merge yourself into God like water in water.   Fix your mind within by following the Path of the Sound Current.   A yearning will arise; make then an intense and anguished call.   Repeat the Name of your Beloved,
day and night,
again and again.   With care in thought, word and deed,
you will cross to the other shore.
— Sant Dadu Dayal (the Compassionate Mystic)  

The lover is converted into the Beloved.
That indeed is called true love.
Forgetting his own ego, he remains
absorbed in the One.
— Sant Dadu Dayal (the Compassionate Mystic)  

Oh think thou deeply and deliberate;
Without the guidance of a Master
The way cannot ever be found.
He will dye thee in satsang’s color,
Take thy soul to regions celestial,
And reveal the firmament within.
If thou desirest, to revel
In realms spiritual within thine own self,
None will help thee except the Saints.
In a short moment wilt thou depart,
And thy body be reduced to dust.
Thy Master alone, 0 Tulsi, will show
The entrance back to thy Home.
— Param Sant Tulsi Sahib  

Whose soul is attached to the Word,
revels ever in cosmic flight;
Revels ever in cosmic flight,
and realizing the Lord,
plays with Him.
The mystery of the Inaccessible
and the secret of the scriptures he unravels:
He reaches his Home within and its Essence
he comes to know;
In the lotus feet of the Beloved
he sees his true destination.
The happily married woman
rejoices with her Spouse every moment, O Tulsi,
For her soul is attached to the Word,
and revels ever in cosmic flight.
— Param Sant Tulsi Sahib  

From the beginning of my life
I have been looking for your face
but today I have seen it   Today I have seen
the charm, the beauty,
the unfathomable grace
of the face
that I was looking for   Today I have found you
and those who laughed
and scorned me yesterday
are sorry that they were not looking
as I did   I am bewildered by the magnificence
of your beauty
and wish to see you
with a hundred eyes   My heart has burned with passion
and has searched forever
for this wondrous beauty
that I now behold   I am ashamed
to call this love human
and afraid of God
to call it divine   Your fragrant breath
like the morning breeze
has come to the stillness of the garden
You have breathed new life into me
I have become your sunshine
and also your shadow   My soul is screaming in ecstasy
Every fiber of my being
is in love with you   Your effulgence
has lit a fire in my heart
and made radiant for me
the earth and sky   My arrow of love
has arrived at the target
I am in the house of mercy
and my heart
is a place of prayer.
— Rumi

Chandi Meditating With Tamboura

Chandi Devi and J. Ram Sivananda

Chandi Devi is a tantra practitioner, teacher and author, having been in her lifetime, a professional sculptor, artist and dancer. As a dedicated disciple of Swami Muktananda, Swami Chidvilasananda  and Osho for over twenty years, she experienced the intense challenge of facing her inner demons, (meditators can probably relate!)
as well as many mystical experiences; both of these a result of the passionate undertaking of her spiritual path.

After completing a teachers’ training in Tantra Kriya Yoga, together with life partner, J. Ram Sivananda,(aka John Henry) they created two online businesses: www.theworldoftantra.com and www.eastwestsensualemporium.com, which includes videos, books, art, apparel, and a vast array of Ayurvedic,health and beauty products. Their new book, “From Om to Orgasm: The Tantra Primer for  Living in Bliss” will be released before the end of this year.

J. Ram Sivananda has an extensive background in psychology, martial arts, ancient philosophies and other traditions. With a lifelong interest in Eastern spirituality, he experienced a breakthrough in his spiritual practice about 30 years ago after a near death experience. Sivananda has successfully managed to weave together the tantric traditions of Taoism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Shamanism, while developing and inventing advanced computer technology systems. Working as a scientist and engineer for many years, he trusts and believes in the metaphysical world, which is much more elusive, but no less true and real.

He explains, “The Universe contains physical energy (physics), phenomenological reality, but there exists an equally powerful and concrete metaphysical reality. The practice of tantra yoga allows the aspirant to tap into this metaphysical reality alone or with a partner.”

We live in California and on a 52′ ketch, Van De Stadt sailboat, the Lincoln, when in Florida. It is our private  "cave", where we do sadhana on the water. 

  It is my duty to lift you up to the infinite heights of bliss and yours to take me down to the depths of your senses…. bringing together these extremes opens the doors out of this mortal dimension and stops time in order to feel the Infinite grace of the Universe……

Beloved Radhaswami – I Am Of My Beloved And The Beloved Is Mine

Radhasoami Reality: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Radhasoami-Reality

Radhaswami Dayal ki Daya Radhaswami Sahai: "Grant Merciful Radhasoami Thy Grace and Protection"

My heart pines without Satsang.  I have been placed in this city of thieves. By keeping the company of loving devotees, Surat [the soul] is awakening love within her. Surat, pondering over the discourses of Guru, attends Satsang regularly and full of delight. I have promised to my Beloved that as long as there is life in my body, I shall love His devotees and look upon them as my own self.

Radhasoami is merciful and munificent. He is my Father and Mother. I shall ever remain clinging to His holy feet. I shall never forsake His company.  Radhasoami is the Omnipotent Being. Radhasoami is the True Creator. Radhasoami is merciful to the humble. Radhasoami is supremely generous.
Praise be to Radhasoami! Praise be to Radhasoami ! 0 soul! Perform Simran of RADHASOAMI.

Listen, 0 friend! My Beloved Radhasoami embraces me in dreams at night.

0 my Beloved Radhasoami! Grant me Your Darshan [vision] today. 0 my Beloved Radhasoami! Shower Your grace and mercy now. 0 my Beloved Radhasoami ! Take me under Your shelter and protection. 0 Beloved Swami (Lord)! Reform me this very moment. My mind and senses never remain calm and quiet. They are wavering and fickle all the time.

O mind! Sing again and again the glory of the support and sustenance of RADHASOAMI Nam. RADHASOAMI Nam is a source of perennial happiness. Whoever performs the Simran of this Name attains a high status. Unfathomable and infinite is the bliss of this Naam.

I am of my Beloved and the Beloved is mine.
Between us, no distinction of any kind should be made.

The Beloved is manifest in a Sant. Come hither and seek Him here. He is seated within you. Come hither and seek Him.

— Huzur Maharaj,    Miscellaneous Refrains and Couplets, Prem Bani Radhasoami, Volume Four
