You think the proposition is preposterous, don’t you? You have always believed that enlightenment would get you lasting happiness, even bliss.

What Pursue Happiness And Get Enlightened does is to turn the whole su

He has always had a uniquely individualistic approach to spiritual seeking and, in the course of his teaching, he has developed several unique concepts. For instance, what is the ego?

You are the ego, the separate entity, the seeker who seeks the freedom of enlightenment, and finally arrives at the successful conclusion t

You cannot have an 'ego' because you are the ego: Consciousness identified with a name and form as a separate entity. The sage responds to his name being called; therefore, the sage has an ego. The ordinary man also responds to his name being called. What is the difference between the ego of the sage and the ego of the ordinary man? That is the core question. The answer is that in the ego of the s

"Watch out. This is not another of those feel-good ‘oneness’ Advaita books. This one is a double-barrelled shotgun taking pot shots at the conceptualising mind – one barrel being fired by the great Indian mystic-sage Dattatreya (Avadhut) and the other by Karl Renz, the contemporary ‘Avadhut’. There is no escape here not just for the ‘fragmented-mind’ but also for the enlightened ‘whole-mind’!
Undecided: Neti-Neti

Undecided: Neti-Neti Neti-Neti: Neither this, nor that. This is a self-inquiry technique of negation which negates all things that you are not. Finally what remains, is what-you-are. Not as the one who knows, not as the one who doesn't know. But as the one who neither knows nor does not know – tabula rasa, existing in its original, pristine state which Karl describes as “blankety blank”.

Ramana Maharshi says, “All that needs to be said ha been said in Verse 170 of Acharya Shankaracharya’s Vivekachudamani: In the dream state, even though there is no contact with the outside world, the mind alone projects the entire dream-universe of enjoyer etc. Similarly, the waking state is no different. All this [world of pluralistic phenomena] is but a projection of the mind.

Am I – I Am is an assortment of delectable snippets from various talks of Karl Renz – talks which Karl often refers to as ‘Living Words’. These ‘Living Words’ are best described in Karl’s own words as those “without a speaker, having no direction, are not teaching, give no advice and do not want anything from you.” This, simply put, is the heart of the book. All you can say about the phenomenon na

‘You don’t need this book!’ Karl would say, ‘You stand to gain absolutely nothing from it.’ He would probably add he hopes nobody gains or understands anything from him. What’s more, he would mean it! In Karl you encounter Advaita in its rawest form – undiluted, uncooked, unconditioned by thought and untainted by frills or more concepts. It’s bang-in-your-face, inescapable Advaita… ‘What-you-cann
