Every experience on the plane of sensory, mental or subtle perception is a manifestation of unity in diversity—a sublime intimacy of an unbroken stream emanating from the Spiritual Heart as creation in all its multiplicity.

It could be said that his methods are rooted in Tantra, having studied such diverse traditions as Vedanta, Tantra, Sufi and Zen he remains elusive to categorization. Saying that: ”Abiding in a state of spontaneous absorption transcends the boundaries of any given truth based on intellectual grasp of ultimate reality…
