Examining the concept of faith, RamDev talks about awakened fearlessness and surrendering during moments of fear.

Check out Ram Dev’s new online course, A Practical Guide to Freedom: The Stages of Awakening, where you will come away with the wisdom and practices to integrate and embody the stages of the spiritual path so you can begin to surrender into the boundless nature of the heart.

“Fear is the demon of the root chakra. Fear is what is learned halfway through gestation to 2 years old when one doesn’t feel safe. Fear comes before anger, fear comes before sadness.” – RamDev Dale Borglum

In this episode, RamDev lectures on:
  • How saints seem to have no fear
  • The principal of Sub Ek (all one)
  • Being fearless through seeing God everywhere
  • Ramdev’s own experience with terror and surrendering
  • Death and being forced to look at what you have faith in
  • How we work with fear
  • Resting in the ‘I am’ rather than the content of things
  • Recognizing everything as the mother
  • Fear as the demon of the root chakra
  • How fear develops when we are infants
  • Anxiety surrounding emptiness

“We’re going from this grief because we’re feeling separate to compassion for this grief. This compassion reveals the empty nature of the heart, and then this Tantric understanding begins to awaken. Maybe that sounds like a lot of words, but it’s a very somatic, immediate, intimate process that can be experienced right now.” – RamDev Dale Borglum
