Adyashanti & Mukti – Living from Peace

Published on Sep 21, 2017
In this special Open Gate Sangha broadcast, Adyashanti and Mukti introduce our new Peace Room Project and its intentions. Together, they explore their shared commitment to bring forth teachings on the lived experience of being an embodiment of peace in the world.

Video Excerpted from “Embodying the Nature of Peace”:

Quotes from this Video:

“The enlightened view shows us that each thing and each being is of infinite value. Each being and each thing is a manifestation of God, of the divine, and when we really see this — not just as an idea or a concept — it’s a way of falling in love with the world, with all of its imperfections.” –Adyashanti

“A wonderful contemplation that relates directly to peace is ‘How might I orient in my life to a sense of what I regard as meaningful and precious?’” –Mukti

“The Peace Room is about how we interact with all of life, and bringing the more enlightened way of being into the world.” –Adyashanti

“One of my focuses is really to help those who are listening into a sense of attunement to what is valuable, into a journey of greater consciousness and direct experience, into knowledge through our being of what is important, and how to recognize that, nurture that, and bring it forward.” –Mukti


Mukti – Embracing Our Humanness

Published on Sep 1, 2016 – Mukti explores the power of inquiry and how it is an essential tool for self-exploration and self-knowledge. By connecting to your senses and shifting your attention to your surroundings, your energies are allowed to settle and rest. This ever-important rest provides a foundation for true exploration into your being. By exploring the very human side of life—how there can be tendencies to automatically take things personally—you have the opportunity to learn a new way of being, one filled with lightness, and depth of understanding. By taking self-interest out of the equation, you can engage more fully with the present moment and act from a place of peace. Letting judgments fall away, you are left with considerations for the larger context of being, which allows a broader sense of wholeness—a dynamic Oneness. Mukti delves into the discovery of who and what you are, and invites you to open up to the new vistas of perspectives that now lay before you. Mukti offers up the following question: What is it that we essentially are?

Video Excerpted From “Humanness and Beingness”:

Quotes from this video:

“There’s a way in which the discovery of who and what we are is something that can give way to a knowing that is beyond experience, and can dramatically transform our lived experience.”

“This realm of being that is innate to who and what we are—that is not subject to the framework of ‘me’ as an experiencer.”

“What can open up, in terms of shift of experience, with the discovery of who and what we are, is a sense that there is a greater emphasis on beingness itself. With the emphasis on beingness— the sense of the someone who is the doer, the someone who is the navigator, the seeming controller, the one who would be making decisions or judgments etcetera—that sense of self has, in large part, gone very quiet, or dormant, or some would say that it is no longer present. And therefore the emphasis becomes more on this innate beingness.”

“Once that relaxation sets in more deeply and there’s more of an establishing in the sense of global listening or global sensing, then one can relax into a posture of being that feels less identified with the personal self and more a posture of being that joins this whole orchestra of life as its expressing beingness.”

The Self in Full Bloom: Teachings and Practices for Embodied Awakening Written by: Mukti Narrated by: Mukti

Be yourself. Simple advice – or is it? What does it mean to be oneself fully? How do we discover and live the truth of who we are in our essence?

On The Self in Full Bloom, Mukti presents six sessions of deep inquiry and guided meditation intended to support embodied awakening – or the pure expression of both our human and our divine natures. The process of awakening involves dynamic and receptive energetics that color our experience from moment to moment.

Through more than seven hours of teaching, Mukti eloquently describes the dance of these masculine and feminine qualities, illuminates the subtle challenges and gifts inherent in each, and points us to their ultimate union in our own unique expression of the wholeness that is already here. “There is an aspect of you that is not at odds with itself,” teaches Mukti. “That part of your nature that expresses harmoniously all the facets of what you are.” The Self in Full Bloom will help you firmly root yourself in the ground of Being while you flower fearlessly in alignment with the whole of life.

“You are beingness itself. You are the knowingness that is so intimate with the being that they are as if one thing.”

“What is this knowingness that already is — that requires no controlling, no management, no agenda, no directing, that wants nothing, that requires nothing, and that is defined by nothing? What is it to know that?”

“In silent sitting, all energies are welcomed. These energies can settle, and the sense of me can give way to a sense of undivided reality.”
