The Existential Question
In this podcast, Anand discusses with his audience, the deep longing to find out what’s really going on and the desire to answer the fundamental questions: Who am I? What am I? Why am I here? And when we realise that there is a longing that arises from there which is to know, that is mumukshutva, to really know, and to go to that fundamental level of ourself.

In this episode, Anand reminds us that it is great moments that make a great life.
“The invitation of time is now, to use this time to grow, to sing, to dance. You see, you can either live this life as a great burden or live this life as a great dance. And the dance can only happen now, not somewhere in the distant future or in the past. It can only happen now…. There is incredible power in this realization that you are the cause, not the effect. You are not the victim, but almighty powerful. And the power lies within your own being. It lies at this moment, you see. For it, all starts now.”

The Time is Now
Returning to the Shivalik Mountains, we listen as Anand urges us to live our lives fully. As he gazes across the Himalayas, he asks us to come out of the waiting room. If not now, when?
“If you are waiting for a time when you will be ready, well, guess what. That time will never come for you cannot be ready in time…. You take the step and everything else will follow. We can’t keep waiting for everything to line up and make sense for us to live our life. Otherwise, life passes us by.”

Recorded during a hike in the Shivalik mountains. From the mountain top, Anand explores surrendering to the divine creation, allowing for unity while exploring the dynamic silence as we connect to mother nature, shedding conditioning and bowing at the feet of the mountain.
“Lay down your weapons,
Lay down all the fences you have built around your heart,
They are of no use here
All your protection mechanisms are of no use here
Don´t you see they are keeping you from the very thing you want to experience?
Lay them all here the mountain says
Don´t be afraid no more”

Values of Silence
First podcast in the Sattva Himalayan Wisdom Series. Recorded on a mountain top in the Himalayas. In this episode Anand speaks to the values of silence, taking you inward to the space that exists with and without this creation, that is you. Inviting you to arrive to the understanding of silence in a radical manner.
” All the experience and the experiencer are arising from the field of silence, this silence is the womb of all manifestation, all shapes and forms arise from this field of silence. This silence is the very fabric of existence”
