The Swami Lakshmanjoo Commentary on Abhinavagupta’s Paramarthasara / The Essence of the Highest Reality)

Video recorded revelations given by Swami Lakshmanjoo from the oral tradition of Kashmir Shaivism of the Abhinavagupta's Paramarthasara (Essence of the Highest Reality). 

I had read Abhinavagupta’s Paramarthasara (B.N. Pandit) many times and was always enriched by its brilliance. In my estimation, the Paramarthasara is right up there with the Bhagavad Gita and Lao Tzu.

However, the Paramarthasara revealed by Swami Lakshmanjoo is on quite another level. Only an authentic enlightened master is the experiential highest consciousness - and thus is able to convey the real essence, the truth of the meaning.

This is the point where words do not, and simply will not communicate what happens. I had always heard this tale about the guru being able to impart wisdom to the student by the mere sound of his words, by a kind of psychic osmosis — however I had never experienced it for myself.

Now — through the power of these DVDs — I was! After I had already begun to feel this beyond-words-experience, I saw that one of Swami Lakshmanjoo’s disciples had asked him how he would initiate those who came after he left his body. He replied – “Through this!” and pointed to the lens of the camera.

Swami Lakshmanjoo has a profoundly fresh interpretation of both Abhinavagupta’s Paramarthasara - and the version of Bhagavad Gita with Abhinavagupta’s commentary - and that will knock your socks off! I often find myself giggling with his contagious joy.

The words Swami Lakshmanjoo speaks come from the place he dwells in. His words convey the fact that he is the Oneness (the Kashmir Shaivite term is Para Bhairava) at the time he utters the words. The sounds themselves carry the frequencies of the power and truth from his individual enlightenment. He is speaking within and from That.

Even though Swami Lakshmanjoo has left his body (1991), his words as sound remain held, ‘embedded’ in these recordings. The sound itself contains the power to change your consciousness — if you are ready to hear. As he says … “Thank you!”

He appears as a simple, unassuming, dear old man. No beard, no long hair, no golden throne, no jive — just a good feeling of an incredible intelligence, kindness, and a great Being immersed in Delight.

I highly recommend that you get the DVD/book set of the Paramarthasara. You’ll know if this is for you. If it resonates with your being, the wisdom flowing from his “nectar lips” has the power to transform your consciousness.
