www.davidya.ca – A helpful and informative site

My good friend David Buckland is also a writer (and speaker) who shares perspectives on consciousness. In his case, from experience informed by a masters degree in Vedic Science, including a solid grasp of Sanskrit.

Here is the live link to his website: www.davidya.ca

I got to know David through a couple of web forums, and we had dinner once about four years ago in San Jose, California. Through the years I have read many of his posts, which have helped broaden my knowledge of the terms and concepts which I have come across in my spiritual journey. He has also written a book covering the distinct steps of consciousness encountered on the way to, and including Brahman.

I am sharing David’s website here as I often find it complementary to this one, and readers may also. Thank you!

it shows up in the pictures...I am a US citizen (born in California), though spent my childhood through high school living primarily in SE Asia, giving me a deep view of both East and West. I began TM at 21 and the TM-Sidhis at 26. I was visited by Guru Dev at 39. The rest is history. :-)

  1. Yeah, thanks for the mention of Davidya’s blog. I’ve garnered a lot of helpful info from it as well. Also enjoy both of your back & forth conversations there. It’s been wonderful to finally be able to read about what a life lived in awakened consciousness is like and how mostly normal it is. Makes it so much more relatable. After years of conjecture around the meal table at retreats and in the TM movement, hearing about it now, it removes the “specialness” and mystery, if that makes sense. It’s mostly been put up on an unattainable pedestal, so seeing and reading how attainable and human it can be, I’m grateful for your effort here.


  2. Hi Greg, Thank you for your appreciation. Yes, Davidya’s blog is a true global resource.

    Yes, a big part of my writing about experiences is just that, to de-mystify Brahman. To view it purely through a householder’s eyes. Maharishi and Guru Dev always spoke from Brahman, and even though the word ‘enlightenment’ was bandied about in the TM Movement, I didn’t find it there.

    I was very fortunate to form a relationship with Brahmananda Saraswati instead – Plan “B”, for Brahman – lol. As I have mentioned, it is a life of miracles, but also a quiet, very satisfying life.

    Escaping nothing, anything can be accomplished from within – all it means is that we access every flavor of the Cosmos within and do the work, or simply think the steps into place, however the desire is expressed and fulfilled. As Maharishi put it so practically, “Do nothing, and accomplish everything”. Though He was probably laughing when He said it, He wasn’t joking 🙂
