When I first read about Rudi in the Knee of Listening I didn’t think much of him.

He was only Adi Da’s first teacher, so I might as well skip to the real stuff, right?

But after watching the vid Sustaining Deep Effort this week I did come to appreciate him.

He explains so tangibly how the process of upleveling works:

meeting the resistance of the next level > being frustrated that nothing happens > arising of neurotic energy > wanting to quit discipline > tending to be irresponsible upon receiving God’s gift.

Totally cool and helpful ❤️

Here’s my ode to Swami Rudrananda.
