Although the phrase, “Who Am I?” thought to be the best mantra by Sri Ramana Maharshi, is indeed one of the most profound mantras in meditation, Shunyamurti, the director of the Sat Yoga Institute, elucidates “I think sometimes it’s actually more appropriate to ask another question of ourselves: ‘Where Am I?’ Because the real question is where does your mind go. It’s not a question of where the body is, but where is the mind? Where does it go?”

With this in mind, Shunyamurti retells the parable of Sri Ramakrishna about two men who make very different decisions for a night of fun and where their minds end up. But, “it’s not where you go physically; it’s where are you really? So there’s another saying in India about where we should be and it’s three words: Satyam, Shivam, Sundaram. And it is said the very inmost core of the soul is most accurately symbolized by those three terms.” Recorded on the evening Thursday, September 17, 2009.
