About me

I look forward to meeting you
or to see you again!

Love and blessings,

What others say about me

Ramaji, the co-founder of RASA Transmission International, once told me, «You are one of the most powerful RASA Givers. I am very impressed by your ability to give RASA, by your ability to reach people, and I know you are very good at all of that.»

After taking a RASA session, a young man from Austria wrote me via email, «Thank you for our wonderful appointment. You are a very kind person. It was great fun and good for me.»

A middle-aged man from the United States, approximately half a year after his complete awakening through RASA, wrote me via email, «It was really good to see you again tonight. I was not expecting that. I just want say how much I appreciate having you as a teacher and that I love you.»

Alexander, a RASA Facilitator from Austria, wrote in a social media group, «A natural — Elias Satyānanda.»

Bio or the story of Elias’ apparent journey of awakening

In 2003, at the age of 20, Elias had a spontaneous Kundalini awakening with a preceding «witness consciousness» and followed by an experience of the «natural, enlightened state» that lasted for about 2.5 months. This awakening experience was apparently caused by various factors that coincided on that particular day — an inner sense of emptiness, not knowing in which direction to go in life, a phone call from his father, reading «The Power of Now» by Eckhart Tolle, being a gift of his mother that had been lying untouched on the shelf for about 9 months, and the «Harmonic Concordance» on November 8, 2013 — to mention only the most obvious. It was a (non-)experience of consciousness merging with its Source.

That which eventually always remains is NOTHINGNESS, the Unmanifest, and YOU ARE THAT.

After this «awakened state» had gradually subsided, there was little more left than a deeply embedded memory and clarity of what Reality is. With the eyes of universal consciousness, it was seen that planet earth would go through enormous energy shifts in the coming years and that all life on it — including humanity — would undergo an epic transformation and awakening process. The question arose deeply in Elias’ heart regarding how he could actively assist other people in those massive upheavals and support them in their own awakening and transformation so that they would be able to go through these times as gently and aware as possible — always with the certainty that these changes would come to pass on a global and universal level anyway.

In the meantime, Elias’s daily experience returned to the «usual state» of ego and self-identifications that was perceived as a painful limitation. The search for the restoration of the «state» that he had experienced before, seen as completely natural and acknowledged as every human being’s birthright, had broken out. A few months later, Deeksha entered his life, and Elias immediately recognized that this was an effective tool that could initiate a shift in people’s consciousness. The calling of his heart had been answered at that time.

In July 2005, Elias was trained in South India as a Deeksha Giver and later as an Oneness Trainer, and began to work with people with great passion individually and in groups. He conducted meditation events for more than 9 years, one-day and two-day seminars, and multi-day retreats. In teams, he organized several large events with up to 2000 participants, always focusing on awakening and transformation. In the course of this work, he visited various countries in Europe and Asia. He assisted over a thousand people in their awakening processes, healing of relationships and life issues, dissolution of emotional charges and traumas, the liberation of the ancestors, reconnection to their divine essence, etc.

After these years of intensive inner work on himself and others, Elias entered a three-day darkroom retreat in February 2013. On the third day of this retreat, a light appeared within that performed a permanent shift in his consciousness and physiology of his body, resulting in the dissolution of the experience of a fixed «self.» Life was now experienced as more free, peaceful, flowing, and completely fulfilling. Even though this state continued to fluctuate, the sense of self would remain transparent and boundless. Inner limitations such as psychological fear and anxiety had virtually been extinguished. At first glance, it appeared as if the «great awakening» had taken place. And yet, he had not arrived at the «summit» of his «journey of realization.»

In the late summer of 2016, Elias’ search all of a sudden flared up again, this time primarily directed inwards. A remaining dissatisfaction with oneself and life had taken over his heart. This quiet existential suffering, which seemed to have been getting lost years before, rose in him once again, leaving him no rest. At that time, he focussed extensively on the timeless teachings and meditations of Nisargadatta Maharaj that gave him deep insights and experiences but intensified the search simultaneously.

In December of 2016, Elias was guided to the website of an old friend he had met years before that in India. At first, he thought to himself, «What’s that again?» He would almost not have thought that it’s possible, after all the intense work and the many breakthroughs, particularly with Deeksha, that another form of spiritual transmission would be the decisive factor for his leap into the Timeless, Nameless, true original Self of all there is. But something inside him persisted, and about a week later, he had booked his first RASA session with Gunnar Gressl from Klagenfurt, Austria. After a personal and highly empathic Satsang that took about an hour and a half, RASA was given. The energy/power/intelligence of RASA both gently and clearly opened his crown chakra from above and worked with utter precision on areas of his brain and heart. As a result, everything that was a limitation and a false identification was permanently removed from his system.

In January 2017, after a few RASA sessions, his search had come to an end, and life in its pristine simplicity, naturalness, and spontaneity remained.

What is, is simply what is. This is before all names and descriptions. This is so clear and obvious that it’s almost absurd to talk much about it unless a certain context compels it to happen.

Life has come full circle, and the «journey» has apparently come to an end, but the depth and the intimacy of WHAT IS is infinite — with no beginning or end in sight.
