Biography


Satchitananda is only Awareness. He is nobody-no-thing. As a relative consent (since there is nobody being born or dying) he was born on 26th of June 1967 in Corinth Greece.

His first spiritual experiences of meditation and Awareness-Brahman-Rigpa, began when he was 5 years old when he didn’t even know what he was actually doing. He wanted always to be in solitude and enjoy the Bliss and Peace he found inside himself and everywhere with closed or even opened eyes. Gradually he became more and more interested in Truth and at 15 years old, started a deep search of religions, philosophy and other paths of Self-Realization and Enlightenment. His studies and practices since 1982 include, among other, various forms of meditations, traditional Yogas (especially Jnana/Gyana Yoga, the Εssence of Non-Duality Teachings), Advaita Vedanta, Dzogchen, Buddhism (including Shambhala Buddhism up to “Golden Key”) all non-sectarian, Esotericism and Gnostic Christianity, both in solitude and as a member of various Traditions, organizations, communities and Esoteric schools. He is not connected with monasteries or any religions. He also has had guidance from several Gurus (especially Sri Ramakant Maharaj) and Lamas (especially Chogyal Namkhai Norbu) during his life. His studies and practice was continuous all his life, in order to deepen his understanding and to keep his teachings alive and inspired. He loves the teachings of Buddha, Longchenpa, Jesus Christ, Sri Ramana Maharshi and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. Some of his greatest inspirations and influences are the ancient wisdom of Advaita Vedanta, Ribhu Gita, Ashtavakra Gita, Avadhoota Gita, Bhagavad Gita, the Diamond Sutra and Heart Sutra of Buddha and Longchenpa’s Teachings. In the past he also studied, practiced and taught, among other, Hatha, Surya-Sun, Tantra and Kundalini Yoga and the modalities of Reiki, EFT and Pranic Healing. Since 2012, he did not feel he needed any more practice and IT was something that he just knew. He is permanently convinced in the recognition that there Is Only Brahman-Awareness-Rigpa and Abides As That.

Satchitananda knows absolutely that the True and Real Guru/Teacher is within: Awareness-Brahman-Rigpa. Nevertheless, some appearing “illusory separate individuals”, believe that they need, in the initial stage, a so-called external guru/teacher. In this long dream, “some illusory separate individuals” out of their spontaneous urge of fulfilment of their Prarabdha karma/destiny, will appear as playing the “role of a teacher”. He does not pursue to find “students” nevertheless he accepts “students”-friends. He teaches out of compassion to assist “illusory separate individuals that suffer” by pointing out that “who suffers” does not exist and suffering is an illusion. He teaches with humility and aims to guide students towards a better Non-Dual understanding, first of all of their True Self. He aims to reveal our Ever-Present but veiled Bliss, Harmony, Peace, Presence, Awareness. The Ultimate Truth is Awareness full of Bliss. Even this is only a pointer because What There Is – Is Beyond any concepts. As a living process, through his experience and practice, he teaches, transmits, initiates, explains and guides into the Ever-Present Experience of Truth-Awareness-Presence-Brahman-Rigpa and he offers Spiritual healing sessions by his own way through his intuition, all over Greece and abroad since 1988. He offers all of his teachings and healing sessions Free of Charge or with Gurudakshina, which means that he accepts for his family any donation of money, service or food. When he is invited somewhere, he asks for the basic expenses to be covered (travel tickets / accommodation / teaching space) and accepts a free donation for his family – without that being a prerequisite of course. He does not wish to own anything and he does not own anything except an old car. All donations are simply for paying his rent and nourish the body and his family. He is married and he lives with simplicity in Crete, Greece with his wife Samadarshana and their twin daughters Tara and Samadhi “born” in 2014.
