by Enza Vita

Awakening, also called Enlightenment is a direct realization of our true nature. It is not an intellectual knowledge or even an experience. While it’s true that “we are always the Self,” if this hasn’t been truly and directly realized, this knowledge won’t do us any good. Just knowing that there is no gate to pass through doesn’t mean that we are at the end of the search, not if we are still standing outside that gateless gate.

Many millions worldwide have tasted the truth of their own already free intrinsic nature and are seeking a next step to end the seeking and live their enlightenment in a fully embodied way, within the context of our modern day living.

“This brilliant contribution to our modern understanding of authentic identity and Presence brings us to a new awareness of ourselves and our innate wholeness and completeness. Enza’s personal awakening story, in the first few pages, is worth the price of admission. Enlightened wisdom is like an endangered natural resource today, which we overlook at our peril; let’s join in exploring and developing our own innate transformational resources for a change.”
– LAMA SURYA DAS, author of Awakening the Buddha Within

“This is a great offering to our appreciation of the genuine voice of Pure Presence. It brings us to a deep awareness of what it truly means to study and realize the Self and our intrinsic true nature as that which is already perfect, whole and complete. It is certainly worthy of your time and attention.”
– ZEN MASTER D. GENPO MERZEL, author of Big Mind, Big Heart

Enza Vita is the publisher and editor of InnerSelf Newspaper and past publisher and editor of Woman Spirit magazine and the founder and director of the MahaShanti Foundation, a non-profit organization serving the spiritual awakening of all beings. She has spent over 40 years searching and studying under many of the great spiritual teachers of our age and she was exposed to the wonderful writings of many others around the world. As a result she was able to discover the universal teaching underlining all of them and to distil and present a modern practical authentic spirituality that reaches beyond all religions, yet allows for them all to remain, as they are. “The truth I talk about is not limited to any tradition” – says Enza Vita, “but is found in, and open to, all true traditions”. She now presents her work through the MahaShanti Foundation, a non profit organization serving the awakening of all beings.For more information, please visit
