In this wonderful talk Mauro Bergonzi takes us on the edge of the unknown through the lenses of different spiritual traditions and ultimately to the very heart of our being.
“The mystery is at the heart of our being. We can’t solve the mystery, we can only experience it!”
Mauro Bergonzi has been teaching Religions and Philosophies of India at the Università degli Studi di Napoli “L’Orientale” since 1985. He is also a member of I.A.A.P. (International Association for Analytical Psychology) and of C.I.P.A. (Centro Italiano di Psicologia Analitica). He is author of academic essays and articles on Oriental Philosophies, Comparative Religion, Psychology of Mysticism and Transpersonal Psychology.
Since 1970, he has practiced meditation (mainly within Buddhist, Taoist and Vedānta traditions), always preserving a non-confessional and non-dogmatic approach. After a natural and spontaneous fading out of both seeking and the seeker, only a radical non dualism prevailed in him. In this respect, his long-standing familiarity with the teachings of Nisargadatta Maharaj, Jiddu Krishnamurti and Tony Parsons was crucial.
In the last ten years, he has been invited to give regular sat-sang in Italy. A survey of the non dual communication occurring in these meetings has been published in the book Il sorriso segreto dell’essere (Mondadori).
