SRI RAMANA MAHARSHI: THE LAST AMERICAN DARSHAN
RECOUNTING A YOUNG BOY'S NEARLY INSTANT TRANSFORMATION INTO THE ABSOLUTE DURING HIS ONLY DARSHAN WITH THE MAHARSHI
As most of you know, if an email address can be readily scaned by search engines the next thing you know you can't even find the legitimate mail in your box. Hence, the why of how difficult I've made it. Below I offer some suggestions on how to get any number of your questions or concerns along the path answered. However, if you feel a message or personal response would be helpful in your endeavors, e-mail me through EITHER the Wanderling link directly below and follow the steps OR the MySpace link below that. Using the first, be advised your message could be lost in the shuffle or forgotten to death using the above method anyway as there are a number of SPAM FILTERS IN PLACE that block just about everything --- BUT, and this is the secret, if you type AWAKENING 101 --- in capital letters with a space between AWAKENING and 101 --- in the subject line of your email it has a much better chance of being sorted out of the tons of unsolicited material and actually be read rather than being blocked or deleted:
On occasion people DO email me about Enlightenment, the Awakening process and any results thereof. For some of the most interesting go to:.
GETTING LETTERS AND EMAILS
ENTER ANY ZEN OR BUDDHIST RELATED WORD OR TERM IN THE GOOGLE SEARCH ENGINE BELOW ALONG WITH THE WORD WANDERLING AND SEE WHAT COMES UP. TEST IT JUST FOR THE HECK OF IT:
SPIRITUAL GUIDES: Pass or Fail?
BUDDHIST LINKS AND SITES
If in using the searches above as suggested and what you seek is not forthcoming in the fashion you desire, OR if you simply wish to email or contact me, again, please feel free to do so. Remember, in your quest, and for life in general, if the intent of your actions carries within it the RIGHT escort, any downstream outcomes from such endeavors will in their context, deliver the strength of favorable impulses as they unfold.

ZEN ENLIGHTENMENT IN A NUTSHELL
nor in any sort of material benefits for their instructions. This is a universal law among
Masters, and yet amazingly, it is a fact that thousands of eager seekers in America and
elsewhere, go on paying large amounts of money for "spiritual instruction." Masters are
always self-sustaining and are never supported by their students or by public charity."
REGARDING THE WANDERLING'S ZEN ENLIGHTENMENT MESSAGE BOARD:
It is with great displeasure that the Message Board has been shut down. In the opening paragraphs of the Awakening 101 course I present the following:
"...if you are here to argue, lambast, debunk or carry on against the (below) premise then there is a very good chance this is not the place for you. Such an individual with such views would probably be better served by expressing themselves on one of the online newsgroups such as alt.zen or one of the various message boards offered by Yahoo, Lycos, Excite, etc. So too, if you are here to promote, push, or champion some unrelated personal cause, religion, religious figure, or doctrine this is not the place for you.
Although this Message Board was not an exclusive arm of AWAKENING 101, it was always guided by the same basic intent and held forth the same basic principles. Mainly the Board was provided so seekers along the path, especially those exploring Zen Enlightenment outside the Doctrine, could have an open forum AND as a source of easy access to contact me if one was so interested. Unfortunately, what happened is exactly what is cited above. It can be difficult enough to pursue the Dharma with diligence without outside interference, let alone the constant harping of those who may have another agenda, spiritual or otherwise, and/or excessive amounts of unsolicited spam hawking a continuous barrage of lower mortgage rates, enlarging certain body parts, and viewing live cam shots of a variety of body orifices left unnamed.
It is my understanding that anybody that has pursued the Way to this point, then that must be where their interests are. My place is keep the path as unobstructed as possible while that pursuit is ongoing.
