The question of being a spiritual teacher or not; the qualities of a spiritual teacher; the differences between Buddha and Bodhisattva; the joy of giving teachings and the use and helpfulness for the people who are receiving these teachings; the concept of ego, the ego as the sense of the self; no condemnation of the ego; the identification with the personal I; the idea of separation; identifications, to put on and off like clothes; “I” is a happening like feelings and thoughts; the self looks at the self – and a feeling of I is arising; the same I am felt in different bodies; inside we meet in the same innermost I am; only one I, the I of God which shows itself in different forms; the question of the past of Edgar; the everlasting now; the same I-am-ness everywhere; nothing wrong in identification and the belief in the “own” story; how the answer of Edgar in Satsang are happening; pointing to the next step or to the last step – the last step, dropping every knowing and waiting for the grace in the moment; the meaninglessness of life; existing itself is enough sense; Sat – Chit – Anand; the resonation of the same energy in human beings; the consciousness, the I am in everybody; the real opening, the opening to the own energy; the last step – always happening out of grace, can happen everywhere, also in Satsang; the resonation to different masters; the real teaching comes from the self; everything is used by spirituality even the projections of the disciple to the teacher; Satang sessions and Tantra retreats; about Edgar’s Tantra way; the goal of real Tantra is Nonduality, to experience that everything is one; Edgar’s love to Osho and to Osho’s huge teaching; resonance with Ramana Maharshi; through Tantra and Osho to the experience of oneness, and Advaita gave the clear description for this experience, the description for truth; Edgar’s feeling at home in India; the movie of what is happening in the world; the climate of change in the world, with the openness in which direction; nothing can be different than it is happening; there is nothing happening, there is only god; Edgar, teaching in English language; no idea how a relationship between women and man has to be; relaxing in a working relationship in the same way as I am alone; to be totally oneself together with the partner; about compromises in a relationship; Edgar’s being in harmony with the partner even in small things; the difference between a habit, which can be changed, and something that is unhealthy for the body; it does not has to be harmonious with the partner all the times; the question who dies when the body dies; the dream of a separate lives as part of the one big dream; there is no time in the way that something is after something else; the nothingness itself dreaming about how it would to be; the most perfect sense of: “Nothing really matters” – nothing plays mattering; about movement and exercise and the health of the body; feeling healthy and fit like ten years ago through moving the body and low carb diet with loosing 50 pound of body weight; about Edgar’s sessions via (video-) Skype or telephone; the “message”: Your are that – and you are not.

Edgar OWK Hofer

Edgar, austrian, born 1963, began in the age of 12 naturally with Tantra and Meditation (Yoga Nidra).


In the 80s and 90s he was involved - searching and enjoying – into many different spiritual teachings of the West and the East.


In those years he also moved a lot into traditional Tantra and became student of the american teacher Bodhi Avinasha & Sunyata Saraswati and was initiated in different techniques of tantric kriya yoga, e.g. cobra breath all levels.


That continued and resulted 1998 in dropping his former business-life and he started a spiritual journey to India. In Varanasi ("City of Light") - after intensive training in kundalini-tantra - he was initiated in the order of the nath-yogis by Mahamahopadhyaya Acharya Dr.Vagish Shastri (B.P.T.) and got his yogi-name ‘Devananda Naatha’.


After that he also became OSHO-Sannyasin, too, (as Swami Anand Vartman) - but just for two days: then without intending and forcing he surprisingly disappeared (some call that experience "awakening" or "enlightenment", others "dying while living" or "birth of the real self" - call it as you like...). His "Birth-Helper" appeared just some minutes before in the form of a silent smiling Satto Babasanji.


Edgar wrote - just to integrate the experience and to share it with others - the Book "Enlightenment - the real is Illusion, the Illusion is real" and since then seven more books in german language. As author he uses his traveller-nickname “owk” (one-who-knows).


Since many years he lives on the atlantic island La Gomera, gives regulary Online-Satsangs via webstreams and also Satsangs & Tantra-Retreats on the island. In summertime he is also travelling through europe giving Satsangs, Retreats and sometimes speaking on some spiritual converences.
