Origin of RASA


The story of the origin of RASA

In Spring 2011, RASA first appeared and began working through Ramaji, a fully awakened one living in Arizona, USA.

At the age of 16, Ramaji had a sudden Kundalini awakening experience, after which he experienced multiple other mostly spontaneously happening enlightened and mystical states.

Decades later, his spiritual search led him to the awakened Indian teacher Ramesh S. Balsekar, in whose presence a permanent breakthrough into non-dual consciousness happened to him in 1989. But his search had not yet come to a full stop. After years of intense Self-inquiry as taught by Ramana Maharshi, of merging with the pure feeling-awareness «I Am» as taught by Nisargadatta Maharaj, of the devotion to the Divine Mother, etc., he finally met Lakshmana Swamy, a Self-realized «disciple» of Ramana Maharshi, who is still living in Thiruvannamalai, India this very day. During this fateful meeting, Ramaji was given the great blessing of full awakening.

After about three years of living as an awakened person in the Western world, Ramaji initiated a Satsang group and started to assist people in their awakening and purification processes that often go with it. While being engaged in doing so, he realized the insufficiency of merely talking from his realization, and so he asked the Divine Mother for a way to support people in their awakening more effectively. Soon after that, while doing an energy healing session with a woman suffering from chronic pain, he suddenly discovered a way to raise her consciousness state. Initially, he thought that he was doing energy work for the woman’s physical healing. But it quickly dawned on him that what had just happened was different from what he was usually doing and that the consciousness of the woman had gently and permanently shifted into non-dual levels in a matter of minutes.

After this experience, Ramaji realized that the One Source in the form of the Divine Mother had just empowered him to transmit the very Realization of the timeless Truth or Reality that had been given to him to others. Since then, RASA has blessed several hundred people worldwide with breaking free from their limited sense of self and with the experience of real and lasting liberation.

Ramaji feels that RASA appeared as a result of specific planetary alignments that started occurring in 2012. With these higher universal frequencies currently affecting the planet, a more rapid awakening in people is possible.

Ramaji is closely associated with Ramesh S. Balsekar, a disciple of Nisargadatta Maharaj and the Navnath master lineage. This Advaita lineage is said to go back to Sri Dattatreya, who is considered as a full incarnation of the Hindu trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Besides, Ramaji has a deep connection to Lakshmana Swamy, Ramana Maharshi, Ramakrishna Paramahamsa, and the Divine Mother in the form of Kāli Ma.

Ramaji is well known for his open, vibrant, humorous, and refreshingly direct way, and he is one of the most human and natural Self-realized persons I’ve ever met—simply a good friend.

According to Ramaji, RASA stands for «spiritual Awakening at the Speed of Light.»

Besides, Ramaji says:

This is not my energy. I am bringing down the divine Light that is already above your head. It is YOUR Light. I am just the facilitator. I am a midwife for the birthing of the divine Light in you that is your Light that you already are, that you always have been, and that you always will be. I give you nothing but your Self, and you already have that. You already are that. You Are That—now!

Spiritual transmission is a familiar idea to some, but not all, in the Advaita or non-dual community. Its most familiar form is probably the notion that being in the presence of or «sitting with» an awakened teacher will facilitate and somehow help to precipitate your own stabilized awakening.

The popular term «Satsang» is used to encapsulate these and other benefits that may arise in the context of an enlightened person. The Sanskrit word means «In the company of Truth.»

My contribution to this time-honored method of spiritual empowerment is RASA. The term RASA is an acronym for «Ramaji Advaita Shaktipat Attunement.» Rasa, as you may know, is also a Sanskrit word. It means «essence.» (Note: Other possible translations include «juice», «juice of life», «ecstasy of life», etc.)

Non-duality Satsang teachers do not know how to do what Ramana, Papaji, and Nisargadatta did — spiritual transmission. So very few awaken.

Non-duality teachers who talk about awakening are like doctors who just talk about a cure. Enlightenment requires a medicine called «Grace.»

The teacher is like a doctor. The seeker is like a sick patient. The teacher gives medicine via spiritual transmission. Enlightenment is the cure.

Self-effort won’t give you enlightenment or Self-realization. It’s for purification and the end of seeking. This makes you available for Grace.

Many seekers report that the RASA transmission of Grace from Divine Mother in support of non-dual awakening has accelerated their spiritual progress.

RASA is very gentle. Sometimes people see a white, golden, or white-golden light. It is felt to be a descending spiritual force that is powerful yet distinctly feminine. It is assertive. It is not aggressive. This is how it can be so gentle yet still accomplish major transformation and upliftment.

Since it is very typical for the RASA to take the recipient up to LOC 1000 at least briefly at the very beginning, RASA is a special opportunity for you to rise to higher enlightened LOCs swiftly and easily, whatever your current LOC may be.

It is impossible to guarantee a process like this, but people have indeed awakened due to receiving the RASA Grace Transmission.

I recommend three RASAs. Once a month or once a week seem to work best. Then, after you get three RASAs, you can decide if you need any more. They are still helpful even if you are already established in non-duality.

RASA does not have any adverse side effects, except that the whole of life changes for the better.

1. «LOC 1000» is synonymous with full awakening or the natural «state.» Details on the significance of «LOCs» are available at Map of Awakening and in Ramaji’s highly recommended book «1000.» It also includes an extended version of the «RASA story».
