De ma mère: la piété et la générosité ; l’habitude de s’abstenir non pas seulement de faire le mal, mais même...

Here ‘lies’ the truth! The truth which can be spoken is, for sure, not the Truth. Truth is never beautiful and beauty is never true. That’s the first premise in Tao, says Karl.

All you can say about the phenomenon na

People always ask 'what do you think about unknotting the karmic knots? ' That's Vedanta. Unknotting your tendencies by techniques, by meditation or something. You come to me, we are doing the opposite! I put so many knots in your bloody brain that you cannot even imagine that they ever will be gone. Because succeeding by unknotting knots makes the first knot, that there is one who has knots, stro

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.

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”.
