Beyond Temporary Experience is the second discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti in Timmern, Germany. The discourse was delivered in English on the morning of 1979 May 20.

Synopsis

Now in the course of this psycho-spiritual advancement, when the particular aspirant crosses the silver line of demarcation between relativity and absolute, he goes beyond the touch of all mundane bondages. And that is the final destination, and that is the desideratum, of all human beings. And this approach of humans is called Bhágavata dharma. It is the proper dharma, it is the actual dharma. All other ideas are based on isms and dogmas. They can function within the scope of three relativities – temporal, personal and spatial factors. The man who is intelligent should from his very childhood move along this path of psycho-spirituality. The sooner a man starts or moves along this path of psycho-spirituality, the better it is. He is the blessed one.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that physical pleasures are very limited. He explains that physico-psychic pains and pleasure have a wider purview, pertaining to developed animals as well. Anandamurti goes on by stating that psychic pleasures are unique to human beings; but they cannot derive unlimited joy from them, because there is an equal amount of pain that goes along with the pleasures. Therefore, the only way to feel a lasting happiness is by taking the psycho-spiritual approach to overcome all limitations. This is the only dharma of human beings, and it is called Bhagavata Dharma.[1][2]
