In this issue I am featuring a letter written to me along with my response.
I have kept the sender and the sender's website anonymous.
I have also expanded the purpose of the YahooGroups list on Nonduality
I have 2 questions for you:
1) What do you consider the very best three books on nonduality you have
I Am That, by Nisargadatta Maharaj
Several titles by Osho (Rajneesh)
The Avadhuta Gita
I consider those the best books for
me because I read them at times when I needed what they said. Others may be
better served by other books.
Q: 2) Do
you find any particular authentic teachers worthy of highlighting at [my
website]? The reason for my question is simple. You have reviewed advaita
for a very longtime and I would appreciate your view when planning for new
material to highlight.
Lots of teachers on the sites
On that list you'll find Sarlo's Ratings, which is kept up to date and
is a good place to keep an eye on.
Watch who I feature in the Nonduality Highlights.
I've looked for the authentic in "everyone." In that sense, almost everyone
is worth highlighting.
Ask yourself, What would your website look like if you couldn't
mention the well-known nondual teachers? What would you write about? What
would you invite from your readers? Where and how would you look for stuff
to write about?
When I started in nonduality, I regarded the utterances of everyday people
as highly or more highly than the famous gurus. That, it turns out, was my
"thing," which I had stumbled upon.
Although I'm still involved on the Internet, my attention more recently is
moving toward the streets. I'm working on developing, facilitating, and
encouraging in-person, face to face gatherings, which is the topic of
the next article...
