David SamadhiDev Browning, Enlightened Master
In 1997, SamadhiDev began going through a unexpected awakening process. It began with a spontaneous state of pure silence for 6 hours each night. As he emerged from this state of silence each morning, he had a profound and complete knowing that became the Mystic 7 Principles: You are The Source, You are Eternal, You are Infinite, You are One with All, Nothingingness, No Duality, and No Essential Nature.
Through these direct Source experiences, David reached the state of enlightenment. This sense of knowing was so overwhelming and distinct that life took on a whole new look for him, relationships began to change, and old habits began to drop without warning or remorse. This dynamic meditation period lasted 6 continuous months, followed by 16 years of intense self-inquiry, testing every moment’s “reality” against the knowingness that he had experienced while in this deep immersion of Source Consciousness, which he began to call Samadhi.
During those 16 years, he co-founded a healing arts center in Phoenix, Arizona and met masters, gurus, and mystics from all over the world. His path took him to India, where he lived in silence for 2 years at several Tibetan monasteries and received over 70 empowerments, 22 of which came from His Holiness The Dalai Lama. In 2011, he returned to America and published two books: Seeing Through The Eyes of God and The Ancient Voice of God. He discovered that the state beyond enlightenment is what is referred to by the Hindus as Kaivalya, a state when the individual ego has dissolved, and The Source looks out of the Earthly body through unveiled eyes. From an egoless perspective, The Source sees the myriad of pure perfection, perpetual bliss, and unconditional acceptance. There are infinite perspectives for The Source to see through, but rarely are they unveiled. Delusions end when full Source awareness is unveiled, which allows for an unconditional and transparent view from Source Consciousness.
SamadhiDev is currently the spiritual director at the Samadhi Retreat & Meditation Center in East Texas, which is a non-profit monastery he founded to allow an atmosphere needed to nurture students and participants in the realization and experience of Source Consciousness. He has been teaching on the state of Samadhi and leading others to reach this state through resin ceremonies and the practice of Pranayama for several years. He abides in this state of Source Consciousness continually.
