Amrita Nadi

Amrita Nadi is the intuited framework of manifest existence.  Amrita Nadi is the core structure of Consciousness and all conditional form as it can be said to be the nerve in which the nectar flows. When the intuition of Amrita Nadi is enjoyed, all is known in truth.  In one who lives the profound wisdom of the Heart, the Guru and God are perfectly understood. For a realized being who intuits the true nature of consciousness, there is the spontaneous enjoyment of Amrita Nadi. A person who directly intuits Amrita Nadi understands the true nature of the Heart and of manifest existence. Amrita Nadi is the transcendental quality of form and of all existence.
