The Truth Is

Front Cover
Weiser Books, Feb 1, 2000 - Religion - 553 pages
A collection of spontaneous "satsangs," or truths, spoken from Sri H. W. L. Poonja's experience of the highest and yet simplest truth: that we are pure love and consciousness, the totality of existence. Reveals thousands of ways to help us inquire into who we really are, to bring our awareness into the infinity of the moment, and surrender to the wisdom of our Truth.

This book represents the purest transmission of Papaji ever written. It offers you a timeless glimpse into the Ocean that is Papaji---a timeless glimpse into the Ocean of Freedom that you are. I have read this book at least seven times cover to cover and each time there is a profound transmission as well as an ever deepening recognition of That, which can never be described or understood by the mind. Through the pages of this book you have an opportunity to directly experience what it was like to be in Satsang with Papaji. His infinite presence and ways to inquire into the infinite emptiness of the Heart will kiss your eyes and open your Heart to the vast indescribable presence of Freedom that you Are. A must read for any serious seeker of Freedom, Truth, Liberation---This book reveals the the endless ways that inquiry can offer you a direct realization of lasting happiness and fulfillment that is simply always Here : )
