“I see, I see, what you don’t see” is an old fashion Dutch children game. Where one child would say “I see, I see, what you don’t see, and its is…green (it is always a color)”. Then the other child would start guessing, and naming things that he sees that are green. “Is it the grass?” …“Nope”…“Is it your t-shirt?”…“Nope”…“Is it the door of that house?”…“Yes!” And then they switch…it is a silly game that you can play always and anywhere, you just need two people and a surrounding!
Teacher and student playing the game “I see, I see, what you don’t see”
Teacher: “I see, I see, what you don’t see…and it is…everywhere?”
Student: “Is it the earth? All the galaxies together? Is it space the element itself? All atoms that are made of electrons, neutrons, and protons? Is it the whole of manifestation, known as gross, subtle and causal plane?”
Teacher: “No…there is still something where the gross, or subtle or causal is not, so it is not everywhere. It’s Brahman that is everywhere: it is the one Self in All that permeates All without moving, that manifest without changing, that emerges without dividing, that is All and One at the same time, therefore appearing everywhere in everything.”
Teacher: “I see, I see, what you don’t see…and it is…formless?”
Student: “Is it the sky, is it breath, is it prana? Is it formless appearance of light? Is it sounds resonating through the air? Is it a thought, or a memory, the mind?”
Teacher: “No…those are all objects and therefore still forms…it’s Brahman, that is the formless substratum in all appearing objects, it is the One beyond the mind, though not separate from the mind, thought different from the mind, as the object “mind” is a reflection of the formless Brahman from where all object emerges, the mind is nothing but Brahman. So are prana, the breath and the sky, that all flow from Brahman, present in the expression of the mind to assist the movement, to assist the opportunity to be alive, though the whole universe is but a dream of consciousness, never moving nor alive. It is the formless Brahman that takes on the shape of unlimited possibilities to play on the unbounded playground of Oneness…nor playing in itself, nor with itself, nor beyond itself.”
Teacher: “I see, I see, what you don’t see…and it is…changeless”
Student: “Is it…?…Is it…?…I give up, everything is always changing, there is nothing that doesn’t seems to change…the only thing that doesn’t seem to change is change itself, because the aspect of ever-changing never changes, but how can change be changeless?”
Teacher: “Yes, there is a changelessness in the ever-changing, it is Brahman, it doesn’t need to change, because it contains the whole. It does not need to change for it never needs to attain anything, it does not need to change for it is perfection without characteristics. The ever changing aspect of the changeless Brahman is one of the many contradiction that make the mystery of Brahman as clear as transparent water, yet as ungraspable as a cloud. The paradox of Brahman appearing as Duality, but being one without a second, therefore does not change at all is as baffling as imagining the whole of the universe being one thought, or just a dream, where time does not exist and space collapses into unlimited consciousness itself…but yet….both are descriptions of the same indescribable!”
Student: “You see, You see, what I don’t see…and it is…Brahman: the indescribable Source, the center of Consciousness that can’t be seen or tasted or touched, nor reasoned or thought of, nor understood with the mind, nor imaged.”
Student: “I don’t seem to see anything, yet when I open my eyes there is movement, there is time, there are forms, objects and changing shapes. There are ideas, and wishes. There are imaginations and thoughts. There appears to be loving, smiling, living and dying. There seems to be a past, a future, and a present being present in the Now of opportunities, playgrounds, changes. There seems to be logic, reasoning, experiences, occasion for learning and sharing, discovering, and exploring, but yet nothing seems to move, or alter, or exist. Please tell me, tell me, so I can know…how to experience the changeless, the formless that appears everywhere?”
Teacher: “See beyond seeing, listen beyond sounds, go beyond your thoughts and dive into the unknown aspect of the inner being. Discover the silence that lives in movement, by removing the clouds of ignorance that hide the sun of Knowing itself, by inviting the wind of discrimination to blow away the clouds. By letting go of the desire to see anything, to hear anything, the feel anything, to experience anything, to enjoy any movement, to hold on to anything, any thought, any memory, any identification. So all that is left is…being itself…and you see, you see, what the “I” can only see…All is Brahman!

Yoga Meditation, Contemplation, and Devotion for Self-realization
This site is an offering to those who deeply long to experience Pure Consciousness that is known as Divine Mother or Tripura (‘Tri’ means three, and ‘pura’ means city); She is the one that lives in the three cities of Waking, Dreaming and Deep Sleep. Temporary leaving behind the three cities and residing only in Pure Consciousness is called Self-realization. Another name for this realization is Yoga; the union of the individual self with the universal Self; the union of Atman with Brahman, or Shiva with Shakti; or the dis-union of Purusha and Prakriti. Some might think of Tripura as an anthropomorphic being but She is not, She is the Non-dual Reality in which all appearing manifestation seems to exist. All that is, is the Non-dual Reality.
On this site the teachings of Yoga, Vedanta, and Samaya Sri Vidya Tantra are offered to guide you in learning to meditate directly on Tripura by using modern ways of communication such as through animations, while preserving the ancient wisdom. These teaching have been given to us by an ancient lineage of meditation masters, lovingly called the Tradition of the Himalayan masters. These practices lead us to a space of stillness and silence where Yoga meditation, contemplation, mantra and prayer converge into deep devotion and constant awareness of Tripura. At the end of the journey when all efforts are exhausted, grace will dawn. This is known as shaktipata, through which the final barrier is removed, which is the piercing of the bindu, and leads to the direct experience of Non-dual Reality. This finally reveals an unimaginable Joy from knowing the Non-dual Reality or Pure Consciousness!
