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.

There is a speech of ecstasy

Most of what is called human life is the rationalization, ego's self lies, about the prison made for oneself from the warp and woof, the karmicly imposed textures, of conditioned life. The true work of liberating the quantity deadened in this way is fierce and demanding and practiced by few .... even amongst the priests and politicians of religion. - t.k.


There is a speech of ecstasy, a testament that confounds the shallow dogmas of commercialized spirituality for it is free of angst and greed. Its syllables spill out over edges of space and enliven the true the beautiful and the good seducing the smallness of ego into abundant sunshine. It takes the form of 'the way' and informs body, mind and feeling in the subtleties of freedom and fearlessness wed to unkempt joy. - t.k.

When mind goes to bliss in the unborn then perceiving simply witnesses appearance as it emerges and disappears like a wave on the ocean of wisdom. Appearing is called birth, disappearing is called death, but both are merely modifications within the unchanging expanse of gnosis. - t.k.

The sage is free from body, mind even being. They know themselves to be untouched by existing or non existence. Even if the whole manifest and unmanifest appearance disappears nothing changes for that wisdom expanse which is unborn mystery. - t.k.

There is a Silence that is the ending place of all spiritual journeys, the meaning of all religions. It is a living Silence whose radiance is Love and whose mystery becomes all appearances. To know this Silence had always been this body's only longing .... it turns out that to know it is to become it. Now, wanting nothing, needing nothing, being nothing - wisdom knows itself as unborn expanse and Love knows itself as the single body of all appearance. - t.k.
