Prabhuji

 

This life story is nothing but a long voyage… from what one believes to be to what one truly is, from the personal to the universal, from the partial to the total, from the unreal to the real. This story is not public but deeply intimate.

Disciple of a seer, an enlightened being, someone who is no one, only a controversial, misunderstood, and misinterpreted presence. Initiated in my spiritual childhood by the stars shining through the silence. Inspired by a seagull that loved flying more than anything else in life.

In love with the impossible, I crossed the universe chasing a star. I walked a thousand paths, following the footsteps of those who saw… with deep respect, but always in my own way.

Without accepting the dishonor of the defeated, the surrender of a lover was born. I exchanged humiliation, for humility; what I had, for what I am; attachment, for love; and happiness for bliss.

As the ocean longing for water, I was looking for my home within my own house.

Even if this life journey is put into words, it will always be incomplete. What truly happens here is internal, imperceptible through the senses.

It is impossible to write a biography of that which has no beginning or end, no birth or death, that which never began and will never cease to be…

Biographies usually deal with whatever happened on the physical plane, within space and time. But historical events are irrelevant. What matters is the timeless truths. The story of a seeker of Truth will necessarily refer to what has occurred in consciousness.

I am not a guide, instructor, educator, pedagogue, or master, but only a traveler asked for the way and indicating the direction you are searching for. I gladly show you a place where everything calms down upon arrival… a place beyond the sun and the stars, beyond your desires and longings, beyond time and space, beyond your concepts and conclusions, beyond you.

This is neither a sermon nor a teaching, but a conversation with oneself, just thinking out loud.
The echo of these words can lead you to that infinite space which is peace, silence, love, existence, consciousness, and absolute bliss.

Do not search for me but for yourself. It is not me that you need, because the only thing that really matters is you. What you yearn for lies within, here and now, as what you are.

Glory has no relation to fame. Avoid fame, for the true honor is not based on another’s opinion, in the public opinion, but on what you really are. Choose bliss over success, life over reputation, wisdom over information.

Playing with aggression, I got to know violence and found real peace. Not the tranquility of relaxation, but the true peace that accompanies us in the middle of the battle.

Life teaches us not to judge without understanding, not to condemn without comprehending or knowing.

By flying you will learn that what matters is not to touch the sky but to have the courage to spread your wings. The higher you will fly, the smaller and less significant the world will look.

“For this gull, though, it was not eating that mattered, but flight. More than anything else, Jonathan Livingston Seagull loved to fly. This kind of thinking, he found, is not the way to make one’s self popular with other birds.”

Jonathan Livingston Seagull
Richard Bach

Diamond Sutra, verse 32:

“So I say to you:
‘This is how to contemplate our conditioned existence in this fleeting world:
Like a tiny drop of dew, or a bubble floating in a stream; like a flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
or a flickering lamp, an illusion, a phantom, or a dream.
So is all conditioned existence to be seen.’
Thus spoke Buddha.”

Prabhuji is an avadhuta, a writer, and a mystic who has chosen to retire from society and lead a solitary life. He spends his days completely secluded from the public, writing in silence and absorbed in contemplation. Prabhuji does not offer any sat-sangs, courses, or lectures, nor does he accept disciples or followers. He shares his teachings only through books, online forum and videos. We ask everybody to respect his privacy.
