iTunes Pod Cast: Satsang With John Sherman
John will show you how to apply your own inherent intelligence and innocent curiosity in the radical self-inquiry of Ramana Maharshi to see directly, in this moment, the naked reality of what you are.
Self-inquiry will not make of you anything that you are not already, but it will, over time, destroy the false belief that you are this body, this mind, this story, this life. That false belief is the root cause of all human suffering whatsoever.

Self-Inquiry Is The Answer
The world of spiritual aspiration nothing much has happened for 2,500 years. There have been improvements and tweaks and different ways of looking at things, but for about 2,500 years, since the time of the Buddha, nothing much new has taken place. We have been trudging along, hearing about enlightenment, seeking enlightenment, failing to gain enlightenment, settling for what we get and so forth, for about 2,500 years. Prior to that, the world of the spirit was seen to be outside of ourselves, in forces and spirits and gods and goddesses and astrological movements and then, around 2,500 years ago, there occured a shift in human consciousness in which we came to see that the spiritual world is within us. That was a huge, radical break.
