FEATURED STORY

THE DIVINE INDIVIDUAL

by Adyashanti

We revere the great divine individuals, but we are terrified of being one ourselves, and so we try to copy them. Buddhists try to be Buddha, Christians try to be Christ, Muslims try to be Mohammed, and so it goes, as if by copying a divine individual we will become one. The problem is this: There’s only one Buddha, one Christ, one Mohammed, one Ramana, one Nisargadatta. There was nobody quite like them before and there will be nobody quite like them afterward. So all of the relentless effort to try to be like any divine individual is delusion in its highest.

We all have an instinct toward true individuality. . . . READ MORE

FEATURED GATHERING

Palo Alto, California

Our Gathering meets every Saturday morning from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm. Our location is generally centered in the Palo Alto area but rotates locations from Pacifica to Morgan Hill, depending on who is hosting that week. (A group email goes out mid-week with location information.) We have had people from as far away as Napa and Berkeley, but most often have people coming from San Francisco and San Jose. READ MORE
