THE ONENESS PHENOMENON
Helping millions worldwide spiritually awaken.
This Oneness Seattle meetup group is a portal to the Seattle area Oneness Community and the central Wednesday night weekly gathering. Gatherings also occur on other nights in other locations nearby- see the Community's online nexus: the Oneness Seattle website (http://www.seattleoneness.com/), where more in-depth information about the Oneness Phenomenon, its three forms (The Oneness Blessing, Oneness Meditation and Sacred Chambers), its epicenter (Oneness University in southern India) and its originators (Sri Bhagavan and Sri Amma) can be found. Seattle Oneness is one of many hundreds of Oneness Communities worldwide. See also the Oneness Seattle Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/OnenessSeattle).
Oneness, a spiritual organization founded by teachers Sri Amma Bhagavan, seeks to alleviate human suffering at its roots by awakening humanity into oneness, wherein every individual feels connected to all that is. The central understanding of Oneness is that inner transformation and awakening into higher states of consciousness is not an outcome of a mere intellectual understanding but a neurological process in the brain, whereby one’s experience of life is redefined at its core.
This is achieved via Deeksha ("The Oneness Blessing")- a transfer of Divine grace that initiates a journey into higher states of consciousness. The Deeksha is believed to affect the different lobes of the physical brain, thereby reducing stress levels and intensifying the levels of love, joy and awareness. Millions across the globe testify the calming and awakening effects of Deeksha, which is now slowly gaining recognition as by far the easiest and most effective approach to enriching human consciousness.
Settled majestically at the foothills of the Vellikonda range on the eastern coast of South India, 80km north of the city of Chennai, lies the Oneness University. A center for learning and growth, The Oneness University creates an atmosphere for people to learn and grow in consciousness leading to a ‘happy’ individual and family. Catering to people of every faith and all walks of life, the University represents growth and learning in both the internal and the external spheres of life.
Oneness in many regards has a highly scientific approach, quite evident in many of Sri Amma Bhagavan’s teachings and this actually comes as a relief to the many Oneness followers ranging from the younger generation and the intellectual/elite classes, who abhor blind belief and unscientific philosophy at all levels.
This kind of a vastly liberal and truly secular approach could be attributed to a very unique perception of Oneness that the founders Sri Amma Bhagavan share, who emphasize the beauty and importance of religious and cultural variety as every human being is unique and cannot discover his true self through one single path. It is therefore their message to the world that Oneness is not necessarily about making everyone embrace the same system of belief, doctrine or tradition but more a process of discovering the truth that is inherent in every tradition. Oneness as a concept is beautiful, as an experience is staggering.
