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.

Tender-hearted affection is an action

There is an 'urge' which issues forth from mysterious emptiness. This urge is the 'love to be'. If there is confusion about the nature of this urge then there will be deep and pervasive suffering and a seemingly existent subjective 'self' and objective 'other'. Without confusion there will be only empty radiance, as creative display, emerging from an expanse of no-thing-ness without superstitious belief in actually existent entities or appearances. - t.k.

Beyond creation itself there is an untouchable, stainless sacredness. If you bring your mind to great stillness, silence, and order then it will be able to touch this vastness and there will be realization that sacredness pervades all appearance. With diligence mind and body can come to live within this knowing. - t.k.

My Guru whispered in my ear "Leave this world more beautiful than when you came into it. This is my wish." That is a wish I wish to live with every day, every breath, and so I train the mind, train the body, train the expression. Before realization there is training. After realization there is training. Training never ends. - t.k.


"Tender-hearted affection is an action. The action of love. Action requires muscles and muscles grow strong with use". - t.k.


When you love as you are loved then confusion and worries will dissolve in the sunlight rays of wisdom's dawn. Body becomes in love and mind rests n the always of expanse. - t.k.
