The End of Belief in "self" is Peace
This is an excerpt from a weekly group meeting where Sal addresses the question of identifying as a separate self and the belief of being located within a body.

Doing Without Desire for Fulfillment
This is an excerpt from a weekly meeting where Sal explains that Karma Yoga, from the Vedanta tradition, is not a path, but rather the result of clearly knowing your essential being.
