Dialogues of Self-Inquiry
advaitaMedia 2009

The Birth of the Lion by OM C. Parkin was first published in German in 1998, followed by translations into English (2003), Spanish (2009) and French (2011). 2017 the U.S. publisher Gateways Books and Tapes re-published the English edition, and in 2018 a new German edition was released by advaitaMedia.

Up to the present day, The Birth of the Lion is a valuable and impressive book for all those who want to know and who are inspired by the desire for Self-realisation.

In his introductory autobiography "The Birth of the Lion" OM C. Parkin shares an extraordinary account of awakening to REALITY after a harrowing experience of near death and his subsequent meeting of his last teacher Gangaji. Combined with questions and answers taken from public gatherings called "Dialogs of Self-inquiry" (Darshan) OM C. Parkin confronts the reader directly with the essential question: Who is the "I" to which we relate our happiness and unhappiness, our past, present, and future? At the same time, he ruthlessly unmasks the arrogance of ego, clearly revealing how the mind clings to suffering and false identification even in the face of the truth that enlightenment is now.
"I am a non-traditionalist, and for whatever reasons I have been granted the grace of experiencing total Consciousness without any illusion of physical, emotional or mental limitation.I have been granted the grace of experiencing total consciousness without any illusion of physical, emotional, or mental limitation. This consciousness is what I AM. Whether the body appears or not, it doesn't matter. Only this direct experience has any authority, and this direct experience is possible for everyone. When is it possible? Now! Now is what you are searching for, and now is who searches. Everything is now. Everything dissolves into this now." OM C. Parkin

Diálogos de Auto-Indagación

En su autobiografía preliminar, OM C. Parkin nos hace partícipes de un extraordinario relato de su despertar  a la Realidad tras una terrible experiencia cercana a la muerte. Por medio de preguntas y respuestas tomadas de reuniones públicas denominadas “Diálogos de auto-indagación” (Darshan), OM C. Parkin confronta al lector directamente con la pregunta esencial: ¿Quién es esa persona que identificamos con nuestra felicidad e infelicidad, con nuestro pasado, presente y fututo? Al mismo tiempo, desenmascara sin clemencia la arrogancia del ego, revelando claramente cómo se aferra la mente al sufrimiento y a la falsa identificación, incluso frente a la verdad de que la Iluminación es ahora.
"No soy un tradicionalista, y por algún ignoto motivo me ha sido concedida la gracia de experimentar la Conciencia total, sin la ilusión de una limitación física, emocional o mental. Esta Conciencia es lo que YO SOY. No tiene importancia que el cuerpo aparezca o no. Esta experiencia directa es lo único que tiene autoridad, y ésta es posible para todo el mundo. ¿Cuándo es posible? Ahora. Ahora es lo que estás buscando, y ahora es quién busca. Todo es ahora. Todo se disuelve en este Ahora!" OM C. Parkin
