Souljourns ~ Sunam Gyamtso Tenzin ~ A Glimpse Into The Realm Of Qualified Non-dualism

Written by Ted Henry and Jody Cleary on . Posted in Videos on youtube

How can Sai Baba of India change a person? You might ask Sunam Gyamtso Tanzin, a resident of the beautiful mountain side town of Gangtok, Sikkim, India, a short distance from Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal..

Sunam is a professor, musician, singer, composer and ardent follower of Sai Baba, the Indian Holy Man who back in the mid 1970s saved his life.

When Souljourns asked him how close he believes himself to be to Oneness with God, to the state of Non-Duality, his reply was that he feels himself now to be in a state of Vishishtadvaita, the state of “Qualified Non-dualism”, or to be more precise, to be living in a state where non-duality is maintained, while differences can still be stated.


We're sorry for the long time it has taken us to post this interview. It is a gem.

Welcome to Souljourns. This interview was recorded in 2016, late at night, standing next to a well lit bank ATM location in a suburb of San Francisco, California. It was the bright light from the bank cash machine that afforded us the light in which we could conduct this interview. Thank you, Baba.
