teachings of a modern spiritual adept

Bite size teachings across 30 years.

For 30 years t.k. has offered radical spiritual teachings on the divine nature of non-dual contemplation and realization. Enlightened mind here and now, born from this culture, addressing the issues of this time and place t.k. offers transmission through countless forms - words being one of them. Here are some short pieces from his teachings over the last 30 years.

My favorite anagram of the word Wisdom is Love.

Where there is identification with the body, existence is fraught with anguish. Where body’s appearing is feared or shunned, Buddhas are in exile.

Where there is grasping to appearance, life becomes suffering. 
Where there is grasping to emptiness and shunning appearance, then awareness is bankrupt.

Where there is confusion about mind’s activity, delusion becomes monarch. Where mind’s luminous empty nature is known, concepts are clothing of a Maharaj.

Where awareness is mistaken as consciousness, the palace of life becomes a tomb. Where awareness is recognized in-as bright knowing, the kingdom of wonderment is upon us.

When the unmanifest essence is not known, freedom is lost. When mysterious essence is the stronghold of awareness, even the word unfreedom can not arise.
