The Transparency of Things explores the fundamental nature of experience itself; What is this ‘I?’ What is this ‘other,’ this ‘world?’ And what is this ‘experiencing’ that seems to join the two together?
The essential discovery of all the great spiritual traditions is the identity of Consciousness and Reality, the discovery that the fundamental nature of each one of us is identical with the fundamental nature of the universe.
“A transparent book by a transparent being.” —Francis Lucille
"This beautiful and exceptionally clear book leads the reader through a series of "contemplations" designed to explore and illuminate our actual experience here and now. This is a rare and excellent book that I very highly recommend, perhaps the best book on non-duality I've seen. The insight and expression is clear, simple, subtle, intelligent, and truly non-dual. Rupert avoids so many pitfalls that I see many other non-dual teachers fall into, pitfalls such as turning themselves into special people, making enlightenment into a coveted future attainment, getting stuck on one side of an apparent duality like choice or no choice, falling into new belief systems, or withdrawing into a kind of detached transcendence that regards the world as merely an illusion. Rupert steers clear of all such pitfalls and reveals the Truth with such clarity, simplicity and subtlety. Very highly recommended.” —Joan Tollifson
From an early age, Rupert Spira was deeply interested in the nature of reality. At the age of seventeen he learned to meditate, and began a twenty-year period of study and practice in the classical Advaita Vedanta tradition under the guidance of Dr. Francis Roles and Shantananda Saraswati, the Shankaracharya of the north of India. During this time, he immersed himself in the teachings of P. D. Ouspensky, Krishnamurti, Rumi, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta, and Robert Adams, until he met his teacher, Francis Lucille, in 1997. Lucille introduced Spira to the Direct Path teachings of Atmananda Krishna Menon, the Tantric tradition of Kashmir Shaivism (which he had received from his teacher Jean Klein), and, more importantly, directly indicated to him the true nature of experience. Spira lives in the UK and holds regular meetings and retreats in Europe and the United States. For further information, see www.rupertspira.com.
