SATSANG, ADVAITA VEDANTA, DZOGCHEN, YOGA
SATSANG.EU | WHAT SATSANG IS What Satsang is… Satsang and Advaita Vedanta are  ancient, traditional ways of liberation. They are the Direct Path for people who want to realize their true nature and who want to let their lives be taken up and taken over by the living Mystery. Satsang or Satyasangha means the absolute Truth, the Radiant Heart, the Original. Advaita stands for Oneness and Vedanta stands for dissloving in the Natural state. The pivot of Satsang and Advaita Vedanta is centration, stabilization and self-investigation: looking at matters directly and seeing directly in your True Nature. Before, during and beyond ‘I feel miserable’ or ‘I’ m happy’ is I AM, Knowingness, Awareness, the unity of universal beingness. But a real and genuine journey of realization can, thanks to the awakening in Oneness and Enlightenment, go beyond even Awareness. Awareness is not the end point, but the bridge to the Ultimate Liberation. The Direct Path leads to entering fully into the Radiant Heart, the realization of the Absolute. You move from the indirect mirror circuit of life to the direct circuit of the Source. The receiving existence (the indirect mirror circuit of life) which tapers off via reflection and referring, dissolves into the direct Source Circuit. The mind sinks and dissolves into the Heart. It is then possible for the life-force to rise up renewed like a phoenix. Randolph calls the dissolution Lostness, and the re- emergence the Ultimate Liberation: Randolph: “Lose your last condition, lose your interest in Awareness, the conscious, your investment in Beingness. Rediscover the treasure, the diamond of the Living Love that is unconditional and immediate and has no beginning or end. Accepting this gift, which is everyone’s birthright, calls for just one thing: the total giving up of everything you thought you were... Here in Satsang we invite you to awaken in oneness, to realize the enlightened state and, finally, to lose yourself in the radiant Reality...”
SATSANG.EU | WHAT SATSANG IS ABOUT What Satsang is about… Randolph: “Everyone has experienced magical moments in their lives. Moments in which everything is suddenly bathed in an exquisite, mysterious light, when all reality is perceived in endless clarity and the heart explodes! You wander enraptured, lost in the glory of an ecstatic universe. These moments come out of nowhere, unannounced, without explanation… … and then they disappear. After such an experience, most of us wonder: “What happened?” “Can I experience it again?” “How did it come about?”  A search is born… You didn't have to do anything, you didn't have to work for it. It just came over you. Nothing had changed - everything was there just as always: the trees, the sun, the sky, the people . . . and yet everything was different. The same trees, people, happenings were suddenly bathed in a mysterious light that made everything exquisitely alive, dancing and singing. . . . It was reality unfiltered, unmediated by the mind, unconditioned, absolutely naked and uncomplicated. Somehow a “perspective shift” had taken place…” Randolph: “In Satsang, realization is transmitted simply, directly, and spontaneously, with or without words. Questions are indeed asked, but both the question and the questioner are led directly back to their source. It is rather a matter of undoing than answering. I call it the Transmission of Heart & Space. Through realization your questions dissolve. Gathering information, holding “yourself” up as the authority, and practising a spiritual “do-it-yourself” are of no avail in Satsang. In Satsang you attribute authority neither to your teacher or to yourself, but recognize that “you” and “someone else” stand for illusory angles of approach. Satsang and Advaita Vedanta show you that for Self- realization, nothing essentially needs to be changed. They let you realize that your exciting life takes place in and around this still and silent Heart Center.”

RANDOLPH | THE YOGA OF LIGHT About Randolph… In 1987 Randolph met Alexander Smit, the Dutch teacher of Advaita Vedanta, who had been a direct disciple of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. After three years of intensive contact, Randolph realized, at the age of 31, who he was and had always been. With the discovery of his True Nature his search ended and his journey of realization began. In the years that followed he was piloted through all the classic traps and pitfalls of the mind. This was, as he has said: “a seven-year-long process during which every form of attention was taken into the Heart, there to be completely and definitively lost, ultimately to rise again as the Radiant.” Through realizations of oneness and the Absolute, the ultimate Liberation manifested itself. This ultimate Liberation is something quite different from the oneness and enlightenment which are often seen these days as the final spiritual goal. This transmission is called, among other things, the Direct Path, because all the traditional ‘bells and whistles’ of ritual procedures and worship forms are omitted. You will, instead, be guided simply and immediately to the Source. Satsang is therefore free from implicit spiritual or religious dogmas, free from any belief system, and at the same time not in conflict with anything.

From Selva Raja Yesudian, a student of Sri Ramana Maharshi and one of the first yogis who came to Europe in the 1950s, he received the Heart Transmission at a young age. Through Alexander Smit, from the Navnath Sampradaya tradition, was his immediacy awakened. The spontaneous convergence of these two traditions has resulted in an extraordinary combination, which makes the teachings unbelievably direct and intense as well as pure and full of love.

RANDOLPH | REALIZATION STORY Visitor: “What happened in your search for the Truth…” Randolph: “I knew that what I’d been seeking must have always been there, but for some reason I couldn’t reach it or approach it... In an attempt to find the key, I studied psychology. I read about “peak experiences” and learned that, according to the research, only a handful of such experiences occur in a human life. In my life they had happened a few times: during one particular sunset on the beach, when my first teacher Selva Raja Yesudian looked into my eyes, when my children were born… I saw that most people around me were content with those few peak moments. My surroundings and society at large tried to convince me that it wasn't real, but somehow I knew that the unfiltered reality I had experienced existed, somewhere, permanent and not subject to change. I saw that people tried to escape the daily grind in a multitude of ways. I saw them living in denial or indulging in all kinds of fantasies. I saw many reaching for mind-altering substances or getting lost in “sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll”, but I knew that these were only temporary measures. I cast my attention far and wide in an attempt to further my quest, and looked for people who could help me. Most of the teachers I met tried to convince me that I needed to meditate, or to practise abstinence, or to be still. . . . But I was seeking something innocent, naked and directly accessible. I felt that my answer lay in the total acceptance of the fulness of life… Eventually I met some true teachers - Selvarajan Yesudian, Elizabeth Haich, Saswitha, Hans Wesseling, Alexander Smit - , through whose tutoring I discovered, slowly but surely, the principles which were at the basis of what I had originally experienced as a mysterious perspective shift. I began to perceive the world and my reality through totally different eyes. I saw that the reality presented by TV, the internet and newspapers - the reality which occupied the people around me - had nothing to do with the sublime, tender, all- loving revelations of what eternally Is... More and more I woke up from the dream called “life” and became less and less caught up in the power play. I became less distracted and determined by the “lifeless, dried-up crust” of the conditioned earth and felt myself carried by her mysterious depth… In the years that followed I was piloted by my teachers through all the classic traps and pitfalls of the mind, until - via realizations of oneness and enlightenment - the ultimate Liberation manifested itself… This ultimate Liberation in the Radiance is something quite different from the realizations of one-ness and enlightenment which most people regard as the final spiritual goal.” Visitor: “You speak about initiation into the "Radiance" and about entering The Kingdom; I need to familiarize myself with these terms…” Randolph: “Every culture has its own words for these things, and these words have various connotations... For instance, the word “identity” can point to God or Brahman… but then one soon becomes entangled in the question of whether the supreme being or almighty power is within or without you. One speaks about oneness or enlightenment, but then the mind, with all its power plays, comes in to claim these states. What usually results in these cases is a “mind realization”, often accompanied by esoteric discussions. What I’m referring to is a free Reality which is beyond power and cannot be claimed. In the Judeo-Christian tradition, for instance, the metaphor “The Kingdom of God” is used to refer to this reality. Unfortunately, over the centuries this term has become fraught with conventionalized meanings; the pure reference has gotten lost in established ideas, persuasions, fictions and spiritually childish fantasies. Out of confusion or through a power trip, one can claim this reality for oneself. To prevent that, and to give you an opportunity to approach the matter with fresh eyes, I refer to something with which you are probably not familiar: Satya - the Radiant, the Pure, the Ultimate. The Radiant is before light and darkness, before force and resistance, before the manifest and the unmanifest…  The Pure is beyond mind and matter, beyond the relative and the absolute. Therefore Satsang is “diving into the Pure Radiance”. In Satsang an attempt is made to create for each participant the ideal situation for bringing about the direct realization of this Ultimate Reality...In Sanskrit this experience is called Aparoksha Anubhuti! The true teacher does this not by answering questions but by transmitting realization. The mind, in its endless creativity, can ask an unending number of questions and hunger unceasingly for answers. Perhaps you’ve become accustomed to spiritual settings in which someone has set himself up as an authority who can answer your questions. The confusion of making someone an authority and then playing the question-and-answer game with that someone is, in any case, not what Satsang is all about.”
