Hello dear instructor.
We are trying to understand the methodology of Tao Mediation or basicly how we discover and annihilation the egos inside of us (mediation part). We listened to your lecture at Gnosticradio.org entitled Retrospection Meditation Explained and tried to make a short summary of your lecture.

We now publish our work here with the purpose of asking a genuine gnostic if the information is correct and also - subsequently - making this work available for other students of the gnostic teachings hoping this will aid them in their work (we have often heard how you want to be practical in your lectures; and this summary is very practical).

Please see corrected and revised edition of the summary by a gnostic instructor below

Thank you for your time and energy oh kind and gentle one. :)

First, the transcription of the lecture will be on the website soon.

The method you are asking about is explained very clearly in The Revolution of the Dialectic by Samael Aun Weor. So, STUDY THAT BOOK. Regarding meditation to eliminate the ego, everything you need is written there.

Joshu asked the master Nansen, “What is the TAO?”
“Ordinary life,” replied Nansen.
“What does one do in order to live in accordance with it?”
“If you try to live in accordance with it, then it will flee away from you; do not try to sing that song; let it be sung by itself. Does not the humble hiccup come by itself?”


The Tao is the Being, the Tao is INRI, the Tao is the Inner Christ. Within Zen Buddhist esotericism, the dialectics of mere reasoning are not in use, but instead the dialectics of the consciousness, which are different. – Samael Aun Weor


The dissolution of the “I” is definitive for final liberation. The “I” is the demon that we carry within. Concerning this affirmation, we can say that the work of the dissolution of the “I” is really the work with the demon. This work is very difficult. When we work with the demon, tenebrous entities usually launch terrible attacks against us. This is really the Path of the Astute Man, the famous Fourth Path, the Path of Tao. – Samael Aun Weor


Tao meditation is synthesized in three steps:


1- Discovery: when during your self-observation you discover yourself.
2- Comprehension: when during your meditation you comprehend yourself.
3- Execution: with the help of your Divine Mother Kundalini.


It is essential to always remember our Divine Mother and to pray and plead for her assistance and help:

Discovery: Mindfulness: Active self-observation (observing the three brains), remembering the Self from moment to moment (remembering once true Spiritual Identity and the impermanence of things) and self-knowledge (through self observation during the time we are awake; that is, take note when an ego is active and to see it as it is: make a physiological picture of the defect in action) throughout the day.

Comprehension: Retrospection during meditation. Relax the three brains, and serenely observe the events of the day as a film. Recognize each defect of every event that you see appear in yourself throughout that film that you made when you were observing your three brains. Mantra for your memory: RAOM GAOM.

Serene Observation (of one particular event): Pick one event that you saw in your retrospection where one or more aggregates were active within you. Replay that event and observe it so that you may comprehend how that ego or egos work (self-knowledge). Be sure not to fall in identification with what you are observing. An effective way to do this is to remember your Divine Mother and to look at the event and yourself in that event as if it is a stage run by unknown actors. Look at yourself very objectively; as if you are not looking at yourself, but someone else.

Pay attention and observe how you behaved in that specific event: What did you think? What did you feel? How did you act? Grasp precisely in which brain of your three brains the reaction firstly occurred. What set the defect into motion? How does the defect operate? What consequences does it imply? How does it perceive? Understand all the facts surrounding it.

You may find that there are several defects [aggregates] active in that one event. Thus, understand each defect systematically, methodically, starting with the main defect that characterizes such an event; and continuing until you understand every single aggregate that was active in that specific event. The mantra to help you to penetrate into the sub-consciousness is Wu (Wuuuuuu)

Execution: with the help of your Divine Mother Kundalini. Pray very devotedly to your Divine Mother, calling her to come and aid you.

Self Judgment: Why was it wrong to act that way? What are its consequences? How should you have acted?

Remember that every defect is the opposite of a virtue: find the virtue of each aggregate. Judge every defect active in the specific event that you are working upon. Mantra to activate your inner judge: KAOM (Kaoooooomm).

Accusation and Annihilation: Pray very devotedly to your Divine Mother calling her to come and aid you. You can for example pray in the following manner: ‘’My mother, my goddess, please come, come unto me. Assist me. You are the only one that can help me in this very moment to disintegrate. Because you are the Holy Spirit, you have the power to annihilate and this disintegrate this defect of mine that acted in me in this day. Please, come unto me, assist me.’’ Then imagine your Divine Mother – like a beautiful divine virgin – holding a spear of fire, coming to you. Then imagine your Divine Mother Kundalini standing in front of you, holding the spear of fire. Then in front of you she is standing, holding her spear, and awaiting your words. And then you have to pray to her – from your heart. Talk to her (to pray to God is to talk to God) about your comprehension: ‘’I accuse myself of doing this/reacting in this way, I understand that this is wrong, I should not react like this.’’ Then we can pray the prayer of Hail Mary:

‘’Hail Mary, Full of grace the law is with thee. Blessed are thou amongst women. And blessed is the fruit of thy womb IE-SHUA. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us who have the sinning eye. Now, and at the moment of the death of our defects, Amen’’
Then, while doing Pranayama, imagining the fire rising through the spinal column burning the defect there in the three brains (because the defect acts in the three brains), we beg to our Divine Mother to annihilate the defect. ‘’Please mother, kill me, destroy this particular defect.’’ And we see how she pierces the defect in the three brains with her spear and we imagine the ego (by bringing into memory the event where the ego was active) burning with flames at the same time as the mother is killing us. And we see that we are the one that is burning in flames, like a devil, with horns, protesting and crying – but being killed by the fire of the Holy Spirit. Helpful mantra during Pranayama: KRIM (krrrrreeeeemmmmm, with a rolled r if possible, and the e as in tree).
This is how we work and little by little become more and more free as a consciousness and a better person.

When in a similar event we do not react in that same way again, then we know that the defect has been comprehended and annihilated.
