In 1973 while in college studying engineering, Magdi was walking to the library on campus when consciousness knocked unexpectedly on his door and, as he says in his own words, “revealed to me that I was not what I thought I was. In a flash, I realized that the person I took myself to be is a figment of the universe’s imagination. A deep stillness and joy revealed itself. Further similar non-events followed.” What followed this initial enlightenment experience was 40 years of burning off vasanas (conditioning) and becoming established as Self.
In this audio, Magdi speaks openly and honestly about his experience of awakening. He shares about profound experiences of clarity and realization, and he shares about periods of challenge and confusion. Overall he demonstrates an incredible trust in life as one’s guru.
Magdi will be one of our retreat leaders at the Awakening Together Satsang Retreat in Santa Barbara from September 12-14, 2014. The following audio is from our May 18, 2014 online Satsang with him. Enjoy!
