Every Friday we hold a two-hour Satsang (spiritual oneness gathering) for the Hindu and Buddhist monks at the Boyd Unit, TDCJ (Texas Dept. of Criminal Justice), in Teague Texas. We always do a meditation practice that is designed to lead to the experience of samadhi which can lead to the source experience. We also have a discourse, instruction in source awareness, and discuss topics from our book: The Mystic's Guide To Enlightenment which was designed just for this prison ministry but is available to free everyone's mind. All expenses for this ministry are provided for by your generous donations. See more about the Samadhi Prison Ministry here >>

Every $10 donation delivers books to inmates who really want to free their minds from a self-imposed prison. 

I have discovered the power and beauty of bliss. In fact, in discovering how to be free anywhere and putting it in the perspective of freedom being a ‘mental state of being’, I’m not really looking forward to being paroled. This is the best place, the best circumstance I could put myself in to get a handle on identifying and eradicating all attachment. I want to show my utmost gratitude and respect to you both for your dedication of time and travel and stress that is created by your generosity. Your wisdom and instruction is much appreciated by all of us and I can’t begin to describe how precious and valued group meditation is in this place. Just to be still and quiet during the day is healing let alone the Samadhi that comes with it. As always, I look forward to every Friday. --Douglas O., Boyd Unit, TDCJ, Prison Ministry

The Inspired Teachings

The inspired teachings of this monastic organization are based on the Mystic 7 Source Principles which are centered on the seven common experiences that every enlightened master, mystic, and sage realizes in the process of attaining God-Awareness. The Mystic 7 teachings are the seven mystical revelations directly experienced by David SamadhiDev Browning during his awakening and have also been acclaimed throughout history in mystical texts and doctrines. These include The Yoga Vasistha, Bhagavad Gita, Ashtavakra Gita, Avadhuta Gita, Advaita Vedanta, The Teachings of Bodhidharma, Tao Te Ching, Henosis, Ajativada, & Anutpada.

The Mystic 7 is not a religion, a philosophy, or a spiritual movement. The Mystic 7 are seven keys to abiding in the enlightened mind through realization of truth and releasing delusion. These seven keys point to the truth which is revealed through Samadhi and Source Experiences and reinforced through Self-Inquiry.

MYSTICISM: 1. belief in direct experience of transcendent reality or God, 2. spirituality aimed at achieving direct intuitive experience of the divine, 3. a theology based on direct mystical communion with an ultimate reality

MYSTIC'S CREED: Maha-Mysticism Creed
Mystic 7 Keys To Enlightenment

  • KEY #1 There is a Source, also known as God, Buddha, Allah, and Brahman. the Source is everything. I am the Source. There are no individuals, only Source.:
  • KEY #2: The Source is eternal. Everything is eternal. I am eternal. No thing can be born nor die. Everything has always existed and will always exist. 
  • KEY #3: The Source is infinite. Everything is infinite. I am infinite. Time, space, resources, and possibilities are limitless. 
  • KEY #4: The Source is unity. Everything is in unity. I am the undividable unity. Separation is an illusion. 
  • KEY #5: The Source is nothingness. Everything is nothingness. I am nothingness. Nothingness is a state of consciousness in the mind of the Source which is beyond concepts where everything exists, but nothing is real, nothing is created, and nothing is manifest.
  • KEY #6: Being beyond everything and nothing, the Source (and everything, and I) can be neither affirmed nor negated. The truth is beyond concepts.  As the Source, all things are beyond concepts. 
  • KEY #7: Being both everything and nothing, the Source (and everything, and I) can have no essential nature. The truth cannot be defined. As the Source, nothing can be defined. 
  • The Source is all there is. Source-consciousness is the mind-of-god. All existence abides as thought in the mind-of-god.
  • Separation is an illusion. The belief in separation (from God, or anyone, or anything) is the cause of all suffering.
  • Everything is an illusion and nothing is real. Ultimately everything exists and always has within the mind-of-god.
  • Experience transcends knowledge, belief, and faith. The mind cannot understand the whole truth, and it cannot be expressed in words. The truth must be experienced.
