What is the essence of Master Sri Avinash’s spiritual teachings?2022-08-07T15:38:05+02:00

To Master Sri Avinash, meditation and selfless service are like the two wings of a bird that will take us to the goal of permanent happiness.

He teaches that the mind is the cause of all disturbances and unrest, so controlling the mind is essential to peace, happiness and spiritual advancement. He emphasises the importance of regular and consistent meditation to quiet the mind, increase tranquility and build inner strength. When a seeker’s practice is successful, the feelings of happiness and inner fulfillment naturally arise.

According to Master Sri Avinash, the aim of meditation is to be fully aware of the present moment. When the seeker’s awareness is in the present moment, and they are fully aware of that, this state is known as satori. Satori is a temporary state of enlightenment and it is not possible for emotional suffering and disturbance to occur during that state. Furthermore, having a taste of this creates a critical benchmark that will guide the seeker’s future practice.

The second fundamental teaching of Master Sri Avinash is selfless service. This practice is most dear to him because of its power to open the seeker’s own heart and others’ hearts at the same time. This process awakens love in the seeker and dissolves their ego over time, eventually leading to the remembrance of their divine nature.

Irrespective of what method of spiritual practice a person chooses, Master Sri Avinash teaches that with effort and grace, together with the personal guidance of a Self-realised Master, the goal of enlightenment can definitely be attained.

What is Master Sri Avinash’s Satori Transmission™ and how can I receive it?2022-09-23T21:34:12+02:00

Satori is a Japanese Buddhist term for awakening or enlightenment. One of Master Sri Avinash’s gifts in this lifetime is his ability to bring people to the satori state. This transmission is very profound and an extremely rare blessing from a Spiritual Master. In the past it was only given to very close and trained senior disciples.

Master Sri Avinash feels that it is vitally important that all spiritual seekers be able to experience satori—the temporary state of enlightenment. This experience will tremendously accelerate the seeker towards the spiritual goal. A major reason for this is that once a person tastes this state, they will have an unforgettable personal reference of what enlightenment is, which then becomes a benchmark for their spiritual practice. In addition, their soul awakens to a remembrance of its true nature, pulling the seeker unstoppably towards freedom and enlightenment.

Master Sri Avinash’s purpose for the Satori Transmission™ is twofold. One is to help spiritual seekers accelerate towards the goal of enlightenment, and the other is to help raise the consciousness of the planet, which will happen naturally as each individual’s vibration increases.

He offers the Satori Transmission™ at the Awakening Love and Joy Retreats. For more information about these retreats, see the events calendar here >

What is meditation and why is it beneficial?2022-08-13T12:22:01+02:00

The word ‘meditation’ refers to both the meditation state and meditation techniques. Meditation techniques are tools that help us to experience the meditation state.

The meditation state is a state of deep relaxation and freedom from suffering, which is the ultimate goal of the spiritual path. There are many effective meditation techniques, such as breath meditation, mantra meditation, chakra meditation, chanting, walking meditation, sound meditation, mindfulness meditation and Master Sri Avinash’s Holistic Meditation Technique.

Master Sri Avinash teaches that ‘emotions follow thoughts like a shadow’. From this, we can learn that disturbing emotions are triggered firstly by thoughts. The thoughts may be, ‘I am not loved’ or ‘You should not do that to me’ or ‘I have to achieve success.’ Whatever the thoughts may be, if a person is experiencing negative emotions, the origin can be traced back to thoughts.

When this is understood, the benefit of meditation techniques becomes quite apparent—if we practice to control or switch off our thoughts, then the corresponding negative emotions can be overcome. This means the power to end our suffering is within our own hands, to the degree that we are able to master our thoughts.

So meditation techniques are tools to practice mastering our thoughts by bringing us, again and again, back to our point of meditative focus, whether it be the breath, the sound of the mantra we are chanting, or the object of our prayer, etc.

Master Sri Avinash teaches that as we bring our focus to this point of concentration or the present moment, thoughts cannot enter at the same time. From this, we can see that the more we build our muscles of concentration, the more we will be able to master our thoughts, and the more we will be able to have control over our own happiness.

What is the benefit of practicing selfless service?2022-08-12T11:21:30+02:00

Master Sri Avinash teaches that there are many benefits of practicing selfless service. In fact he says that it is perhaps the most powerful spiritual practice a person can do—as well as being the easiest.

Selfless service awakens the remembrance of a person’s true nature—which is love and compassion—and dissolves the negative conditioning that causes suffering. When a person helps others selflessly, they begin to lose their ego, and dwell more within the heart and less in the mind and thoughts.

Furthermore, very few people are able to meditate for many hours straight, but most people are able to do selfless service for that length of time. So selfless service is an easier spiritual practice than meditation for most people, with equal benefits.

Master Sri Avinash encourages everyone to do kind deeds for others whenever the opportunity arises. The kind deeds don’t need to be grand, but may be as simple as standing on a bus to let an elderly person take their seat, helping a stranger carry their shopping, or interacting kindly with the waitress at a restaurant. As well as these ad hoc daily kindnesses, selfless service can be practiced through organised activities such as serving at a homeless soup kitchen or fundraising for a charity.

The power of selfless service should not be underestimated, because so many people throughout history have achieved the goal of enlightenment by practicing selfless service. But the reality is, it is best to complement this practice with meditation for overall spiritual progress.

So selfless service is a powerful spiritual tool, enhancing people’s lives and at the same time creating a more beautiful world for everyone to live in.

What is the difference between enlightenment, self-realization, God-realization, nirvana, satori and samadhi?2022-08-12T11:21:28+02:00

The terms ‘enlightenment’, ‘self-realization’, ‘God-realization’ and ‘nirvana’ are interchangeable. These terms refer to a state of perfect equanimity of mind, or freedom from suffering.

‘Satori’ or ‘Samadhi’ are temporary experiences of the enlightened state. The satori experience may last for minutes, hours or days, however it is not permanent—the person will return to their previous state of mind. Experiencing this satori state is extremely powerful—it makes the practitioner naturally yearn to experience more of this state. In this way it acts as a benchmark and a
