a direct transmission to text from SAMANA
This limited edition booklet has been produced to accompany the work entitled
"Who is the one who would search for Light? More intimate and closer than breath, free of distance and location,the Illumined Radiance of and AS Knowing is the nature of experience, immanent, ineffable.Who is the one who would search for Light, is the Light itSelf.This is your Divine Condition"
An installation by Samana of a 10,000 watt vertical beam searchlight for
'Let There Be Light' art exhibition and event atPVCC College in Charlottesville Virginia by invitation of the curator.
'LIGHT ALONE IS' is a unique and illumined sharing which speaks to the nondual nature of light, seeing, art, and enlightenment. This direct-transmission arose as an aspect of a greater work-immersion which includes the installation of a 10,000 watt vertical searchlight beam to serve and facilitate an invitation as an open public Satsang. The text is not a nonduality pointer, but rather speaks to and as the fundamental nondual nature of mind, objectless Pure Consciousness, the mirror itSelf, which is recognized, realized, by means of reflection, that this reflection may be dissolved. As such, this is a radical text which fundamentally speaks to what it is to be conscious, and the nature and essence of Reality. The words are pure arising, and this transmitted text has the power of radical Direct-Transmission, which by nature is the end of the assumption of point of view. Source Illumination is the precise illumined spark of apparent convergence of all Master teachings and lineage traditions, from Christian mysticism, to Dzogchen, to Advaita. To evoke the Unbroken, Undifferentiated Light is the purest means to speak to both the apparent contracted-state, and the nondual Reality. This is the Samadhi of clear and present Awareness, the sublime Knowing, and its immanent and ineffable realization, the Pure Presence which can not be apprehended, but which simply IS. ~ Flame Of Silence
The installation of a beam of light was a decisive intervention, serving as a therapeutic action of Grace, the visible intersection of an apparent earthly and self-centered position, orientation, and point of view, as the manifestation of the sacred axis which unites as nonduality above and below, heaven and earth, intersecting the apparent reality to illumine AS Reality, and the direct-apprehending and recognition that to see The Light is Seeing, free of separation from The Light, as that which sees The Light is The Light itSelf. The so-called vertical axis is Self-established, and Light assumes Its rightly Self-evident place. This is Baptism by and AS Light. A central beam of Light is the Self-evident Holy absence of center. To see The Light is Seeing, Seeing is Knowing. Knowing is Consciousness, Consciousness is Light. Beam = Be / Am. This is the end of Light as metaphor. ~ Sri Samana
