How Did You Meet David?: 

My good friend Paul brought me to see David in the fall of 2008. Paul and I got to know one another while studying with another great master who had passed away years earlier. At first I was a little hesitant when Paul described David's teaching as strictly transmission/darshan, as I knew how easy the shakti can become just another drug you hunger for while the teacher keeps you enthralled. I had been studying with a teacher who focused on just being present. This was healthy for me, as I didn't want to get caught up in another shakti-drug trip like I'd gone through with a previous teacher. But when meeting David for the first time, he really felt like family -- that's really the best way I can put it. I felt so comfortable with him, as if I'd known him for years. And I loved his honesty and directness. He openly and freely criticized anyone or any teaching that reeked of bullshit. It was really refreshing to meet a teacher like that.

As for the shakti, yes, it's wonderful, of course! But it's almost more important for me to be with a teacher I can trust, who'll never bullshit me or string me along. And it's clear to me, beyond any doubt, that David is a very deeply realized master, who can help me untie all my inner knots so I can be truly free.

How has meeting David, attending his events or coming into contact with his teachings, impacted your life?: 

With David I really feel a renewed spark for Enlightenment, and this spark has actually relaxed me a bit. I tend to get bent out of shape when I don't live up to my expectations, which is most of the time. With David I feel I can just relax into the moment, and not get caught up in any type of obsession over realization. I'm finding a balance between keeping my sadhana strong and consistent, and allowing David's grace to work its magic.

How Did You Meet David?: 

I used to live in San Francisco and saw David's photo from time to time. I always felt a certain connection with him, but for some reason unknown, never physically sought him out. Now, living in DC, I have found him. I have found home. Last Tuesday night, the 10th of February, excited about Abraham Lincoln's upcoming 200th birthday, I recommited myself to Liberation and Freedom of the Highest Form. Ironically, to the Formless and Nameless. I was hungry for God. I went to www.satsangteachers.com and saw that at that very moment, David was offering an online satsang. I quickly registered with the site and was present. In the first few initial moments, I admit, I saw a few judgments (or rather, comparisons with other teachers) cross my mind. But very quickly the mind subsided into the heart and energy began rushing through my being. I also began to experience a profound sense of sweetness and love coarsing through my veins. I felt this adoration for David welling up within me. I was in love with his face and his form. I felt so open to him and to the Truth he expoused. It was palpable. Again, tonight, my body went into some sort of state of samadhi, as stillness overtook me, and a great light filled my body and my room. It was delicious! Thank you David for coming into my life! God bless you and the unique and priceless service you are rendering to the world!

Love and Light,

I have been meditating for 19 years now. My favorite book is Nisargadatta's I AM THAT. Intellectually, I know that I am pure being, pure awareness, and pure love. However, the total dissolution of my ego has not yet occured. I feel that already, after only 2 internet satsangs, that David is going to help this melting to occur! I am very excited about this! Tonight, I giggled and felt so happy as he said to me, "Go away now." He mentioned more, but that was all I heard. I think he said to stop noticing the process, to stop looking at the mind and just allow the disappearance to happen. Thank you David! God bless you!

Love and Light,

Prem Daas
