#49 Resonance of Being

Podcast with

Mauro Bergonzi taught ‘Indian Religion and Philosophy’ from 1985 to 2017 at the University of Naples “L’Orientale”. About twenty years ago  – after 25 years of meditative practices –  a spontaneous fading out of his spiritual seeking just happened unexpectedly and only a radical non-dualism prevailed. From then on, he has been invited to hold regular meetings of ‘sharing of being’ (satsang). A survey of Mauro’s non-dual communication is available in his book Il sorriso segreto dell’essere (Mondadori) and in his website.
