True spiritual knowledge is so delicate. Every step of the way echoes of truth are heard and considered to be truth. How will people ever really move forward, go deeper? Even the deepest, most enthusiastic and dedicated drift in their understanding. And of course, they are sure they ‘get it’. Echoes of truth.
It is beautiful to watch the awakening from within that people experience when they regularly come to classes. Of course, i am only a catalyst, a servant to their inner awakening. Like the gardener attending the rose – the knowledge is in the rose, the gardener only assists the process. Yet such ‘gardening’ is subtle.
Echoes of truth perceived as truth hold truth at bay – for lifetimes. Deep, intense study. Emotional rapture. Memorizing the Vedic texts. These things do not ensure true spiritual evolution.
I long for your awakening to the Truth that lies within you. I am dedicated to serving in that process. And you must meet me half way. This will not always be easy. I will tell you how it is. At times you will misunderstand me, get confused, upset, perhaps even offended. If you continue to try to understand, I will always be there, committed to you.
For many years I have sat at Dr. Mama’s feet, and these words ring true to me, especially the ones about his commitment to us.
The experience of being in class with Michael Mamas is extraordinary, an experience of deep healing and stirring within of the soul that longs to be free of all the trappings and conditioning life piles upon it. When I was a little girl, I realized my main goal in life was to become the person God created me to be. I didn’t understand exactly what that meant, it was just a longing to be fully who I was. Being led to this amazing teacher and guide has been an honoring of that desire. If anyone is genuinely seeking deeper understanding and Truth and willing to look beyond their current paradigms and belief systems, they won’t be disappointed.
My deepest gratitude and appreciation to Michael, as the Indians have titled him Brahmarshi, the highest of the seers. Thank you.
Anonymous, you have expressed my life experience and commitment to using this life as the opportunity to strive for that oneness with God-Consciousness. Using the guidance of Dr. Michael Mamas, as the catalyst, has unveiled to me a level of Being that simplifies the complexity of the relative. I’m very grateful for his commitment to all of humanity……
Thank you from the depth of my being.
It is true that sometimes it isn’t easy, however I am glad I keep coming back! All that I have become, I lay at the feet of my teacher, Dr. Michael Mamas.
What a beautiful gift your words are. Thank you for an enlightening 😊 Grounding heaven of a class. You are truly inspiring.
These comments are so beautiful. All I can say after being in class this week is what happens during class is just amazing.
Michael Mamas is a bodhisattva- a teacher who comes back over and over because of his love for us. We are so fortunate that this time he incarnated in the West and teaches rational spirituality.
Dear Dr. Mamas,
I feel your sincerity and love for all of us from reading this blog and in the class as well. I am reminding myself, if I can’t meet you all the way, I have to meet you at least half way. The experience I had in class was beyond words. My deepest gratitude to you!
Jai Guru Dev
I love when Dr. Michael Mamas talks about the spiritual path and it’s elusiveness. I like to stop and contemplate my “progress” so to speak. While I may never know how I’m evolving, I can say for certain that from the very first class I had with Dr. Michael Mamas my life changed forever. I’m profoundly grateful for that.
Lifetimes of love.
Jai Siva Sankara
My words are dull compared to the feelings of gratitude I feel for Dr. Michael Mamas, his teachings and commitment to all of us. Thank you also does not seem adequate. Thank you
Having recently returned home from class in San Francisco area I am sweetly and deeply inspired. Class was wonderful. My efforts and toil are affirmed as most worthwhile when I have the opportunity and privilege to be with you all. After every class I feel deeply fulfilled. Yet at the same time, I feel sad to leave and also sad to think of those who were unable to attend. No two classes are ever at all alike. Once one is over, it is gone. All that remains is what those who were in attendance received and carry home within their hearts and minds.
Whatever is going on around me, I feel deeply that this is my home: this place, this life, this path that I get to live at Mount Soma… Even if/when things on the surface of life shift or change (e.g. my location, role, etc), it can never change the fact that you have opened a door inside of me which has forever shifted and strengthened the sense of home that I carry within myself. I simply feel deeply blessed to be living somewhere that can perceive, support, and nourish my being, my transformation, and my continually coming Home. Thank you.
