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.

How was your relationship with your Guru?

One day someone asked t.k. what was his relationship with his precious Lama. This was his spontaneous reply, recorded, and jotted down here.

"I spoke to the sunlight and asked “Who is this mysterious one who lives in the full moon’s rays?” the sun laughed and laughed.

The salt doll thrown in the ocean talks to it of the flavor of salt - all the while dissolving. The ocean just smiles like a mot...her watching her child.

The bee understands the flower’s invitation and follows it to the source. The heart knows Love’s trail markers and begins a journey.

Sometimes the markers are the shape of inexplicable beauties, other times they are the shape of hard times. The heart is not confused by shapes but reads the messages hidden within. When sunlight meets frost it does not complain of the cold but sets free a torrent of diamonds with a single kiss.

Have you seen the way the seed’s hard shell is broken open by the earth’s embrace? Have you watched the morning mist give itself into the sun’s intimacy? These are Love’s whispered instruction. “Come out from yourself.”

Listen friend: This world of human concerns is only a guesthouse. Open the door and walk out into mystery where sunlight and ocean’s poetic utterances become a sadhana."
