Is it Nonduality' Advaita or Neo-Advaita???

I really dislike all these 'labels' that are put on teaching like 'Neo -advaita' . Truth is just what it is - Truth! It belongs to no-one and no 'school of thought' can pretend to take ownership of it. Therefore Truth is ultimate Freedom!

When we talk about Truth/ God, it HAS to be clear; absolute and radical. It has to GIVE YOU NOTHING so that the mind has NOTHING to grab on to. Otherwise, it's all just concepts and empty descriptions, which will entrap the mind and keep it trapped. It really is ONLY, when the mind isn't given anything it can use, that it has the potential to give up, and that's when seeking drops away and Life as it arises, may truly be ‘seen’.

  1. I agree...and so often people use the labels along with the teachongs they are associated with often withput even realizing they ate doing so. I yearn to be fresh from the womb of my rebirth...
