Become more Conscious through Mathematics.

A crystal-like mind that is clear and strong can reach further into the bliss and surrender of eternity. We seek to become more clear and profoundly conscious. Mathematics is the tool and flavor of our transformation. With it we gain mathematical comprehension and its power to support us in the world and in our creative expression. Math is the essence of abstraction, it brings lucidity to all our endeavours, and the practice of mathematics, when done in this Enlightened way, hones the powers of the mind, purifies the heart, and allows us to see the exotic beauty of mathematical elegance showcased in fabric of dimension, in the latent recesses of all human consciousness.

Develop a deep and lasting comprehension of mathematics based on the direct perception of mathematical truth. Apply mathematics dynamically and creatively in novel life situations with a knowledge that is not limited by the confines of rigid technique. Experience the sacredness and beauty of mathematics by seeing it directly and for yourself. See mathematical equations and the language of mathematics as expressions of a deeper source and truth. Do math in a way that cultivates spiritual qualities including mindfulness, humility, and love.

“The greatest intelligence is the intelligence of love. To be, just to be, without motive or interpretation, is to allow the impersonal ambient divine intelligence to arise in your perceptual field. The knowledge of the heart.” The Bhakti Math Guru

An Example of the Direct Perception of Mathematical Truth

This is the Pythagorean Theorem expressed as one singular movement of abstract truth. It took me a while to see this in gentle and nearly silent contemplation. I was especially happy to animate it with code once I had, because it elucidated it for me and helped me see it better and more completely.          

One need not codify the Pythagorean Theorem into the language of mathematics to behold it in its eternal form. For the first 8 seconds of the animation I share the abstract structure in its pure form without the attempt to describe it, then I add the two pink squares to show how this is the singular movement that is represented by a^2 + b^2 = c^2.          

Notice that the two pink squares equate to the large static square outlined in light grey. The tessellation or tapestry shows an area equality (all the rotated squares add to all the background squares), and the area of the two rotated squares is a multiple of a^2 + b^2, and the area of the background square is a multiple of c^2.       

This is spiritual. Not only are we in communion with a timeless structure inherent in the fabric of dimensionality itself, which has existed since before earth, but we are seeing something as it is without the limitation of interpretation, language and conditioning, and that is a movement of love.      

I later discovered that this interpretation was historically done by two mathematicians in the last 1000 years. But, it was immensely regarding to discover it myself with code and contemplation.         

To me this is not a proof, this is an experience of mathematical truth. It is an archetypal example of what I mean when I say to behold mathematical truth as one singular movement.

“Enlightened Mathematics centers on the direct perception of mathematical truth. Only then can we use equations with a freedom that has no limitations.” The Bhakti Math Guru

Introduction

What does it take to look at life and see instantaneously with crystal clarity what is? To see truth. To see truth that is not the result of an intellectual process, but rather an instantaneous intellectual insight. Instantaneous insight is a movement of genius, and it doesn’t come from pre-programmed analytical conditioning, which is in our current culture a ubiquitous approach to education and life. It comes from a state of mind in which one is empty yet full, integrated and free. A state of mind which is moved by the power of the heart, a state of mind which is unperturbed and rather lives in the equanimity and poise of truth. We can live with the magic of a genius child beholding the universe anew and afresh.

A true intelligence, true genius, can be achieved simply by changing one’s way of living, thinking and acting. This genius not only produces the ability to see mathematical solutions swiftly and brilliantly, but brings this capacity out to enrich every facet of our lives, every social interaction, business endeavor, athletic activity, or academic pursuit. And most of all, it empowers our inner sight and knowing so we may more deeply and profoundly commune with the supreme, God, truth, or Enlightenment. True genius is an expression of divine love coming through us.

If we so chose, we can live in a heightened state of awareness in which truth is apprehended. To live like this is to be in the heart, it’s to be a conscious being, and it is to be empowered with a brilliance, one that is otherworldly, mystical, essential and relevant to our truest happiness in life.

In my program, I help you to become an integrated individual who can perceive with this ingenious instantaneous insight. Through a combination of meditation and spiritual principles as well as their application in mathematics, through the development of your own spiritual routine, and through the contemplation of mathematics in which there is a genuine development of the direct perception of mathematical truth, I’ll be helping you and my other students to develop in this way so that we can live in this world with greater consciousness, happiness and magic.

Question
“What topics do you teach and what is spiritual about them?”

Mathematics is Spiritual when one experiences mathematical truth directly. Mathematics is not Spiritual when one considers it in the realm of logical inference alone. It doesn’t matter what topic in mathematics is being considered, mathematics itself and all of its topics are the essence of manifestation, the foundation and fabric of dimensionality itself. Mathematics in that sense is the eternal aspect of everything, it is the essence. This is profound, mystical, majestic, and as spirituality means of or pertaining to the spirit, that which is essential to who we are as creators and beings of the universe, so Mathematics is also spiritual as it pertains to the essence.

What makes my unique approach to mathematics particularly spiritual is that one gets to actually experience mathematics not through the distancing effect of the intellect inference, but through the unifying effect of the direct perception of mathematical truth, gestalt perception of mathematics. When we see mathematics as a singular movement, when we see it with simplicity and directly, then we commune with this essential aspect of dimensionality, we embody it. I find it most relevant to elucidate the most foundational and ubiquitous concepts in mathematics. Concepts like the Pythagorean theorem. I find this to be a good starting place, but all of mathematics can be done this way.

The other aspect of the mathematics I teach that makes it spiritual are the spiritual principles that are applied and the way the application of those principles within the context of mathematics as a mindfulness practice work on the karma, or state of mind, of the practitioner to cultivate within them spiritual energy. The essential spiritual principle which informs the practice is the principle of seeing without the confounding effect of memory and conditioning. To listen and see with a fresh new mind, and to do this every time, is a movement of love, which is to see what is without agenda or the accumulation and residue of past experience.

What are the topics you teach and what’s spiritual about them?

The first question I would need to answer is, what is spiritual? Spiritual means pertaining to spirit, that part of us which is unchanging and eternal. There are two primary ways in which this mathematics program is spiritual. One is by connecting with the profound and spiritual qualities of mathematics itself. Mathematics is extremely essential to the manifest universe, more essential than physics. Mathematics informs physical law and perhaps more accurately it informs the law of possibility, the law of dimensionality itself. It is the essential structure of existence, but only of manifest existence, that is, of form (true existence is not of form, but of the formless foundation as being and awareness). In this sense, mathematics goes to the most eternal aspect of manifestation and duality, but manifestation is by its very nature impermanence and not eternal.

What makes this form of mathematics spiritual is to commune with mathematics itself, without having the intellectual chasm of algorithmic process, formula and multistep proof. Communion means to perceive directly without the confounding nature of thought, which is the past and a limitation and barrier to knowing the present. We communion by the Zen application of Beginner’s Mind in which we see with one instantaneous insight the self evident nature of mathematical structures.

Take for instance the number phi, the golden ratio, 0.618. This number can be calculated with a quadratic formula using a mechanical sequence of steps, but it can also be visualized and seen with instantaneous clarity beyond the linear process of thought and logic. It is by going beyond logic into this instantaneous perception that we connect and commune with mathematical truth. Culturally in mathematics we emphasize the application of formulas without communion with their source. But if one is too see the source, then equations are expressions of that essential insight.

The other way and perhaps the most significantly spiritual way in which this from of mathematics is spiritual is through the mindful application of spiritual principles and the way that those spiritual principles transform one’s state of mind. In this sense, anything can be spiritual, because whatever you do with the application of spiritual principles, cultivates without you those principles. One of the key spiritual principles is what I have discussed above, that is, to do mathematics by seeing without the limitation of thought and conditioning. If one uses memory as a filter through which the interpret life based on like and dislike that come from past conditioning, then they are not seeing life as it is. Truth cannot be perceived through a filter of interpretation. The way of doing math above is the direct application of this spiritual concept, and when one does math in this way, they develop spiritual and alter the way they see life. This is also a key principle in love, in which one sees in such a way that they find union through complete presence, to look and experience the other as they are, to see them without the confounding conditioning of memory, and in doing so to find union an acceptance. Love is a union, and if we can cultivate within ourselves the ability to look upon all of life without the confounding nature of memory, then we develop spiritually. The spiritual path is the path of going beyond the intellect, and being able to perceive what is without the limitations of intellect. That is to made the intellect a faculty of description of what we see, but not a faculty of seeing itself.

As my spiritual teacher always said, the way you do anything is the way you do everything. A formal mindfulness practice in mathematics in which the application of this principle of seeing is applied transformers ones state of mind. Of course, to do math in this way not only requires the intellectual relationship that is informed by this principle, but also the active practice of meditation in which one can liberate themselves from the inertia developed in their mind. This is why meditation is an essential aspect of this program. Through meditation we use energy, especially the energy of the heart, to clarify and purify our aura and liberate ourselves from the inertia of thought.

Only in my 30s, after over 5000 hours of teaching one-on-one, after a degree in physics, after feeling that I knew so much about mathematics, did I realize that within this context I don’t even know multiplication! What I knew as mostly memorized! multi It wasn’t until I realize that until I can do multiplication without accessing memory that I am truly doing multiplication in this way. The mechanism and approach that I used to test myself was to see if I could multiply in a novel base system and get the right answers, which would be different than anything I’d ever been conditioned with. For example, what’s 13×13 in base 12. This was only the beginning, and approaching mathematics in this way opens up so many concepts that need to be considered. For example, why is the integral of sine between zero and pi 2? The very simple explanation is because the circle has two radii within one diameter.

Using computer programming I am able to show this truth and share a mental visualization through animation. Computer programming is an essential part of this practice because it allows us to see and experience mathematical truth visually. Also the practice of expressing oneself through computer programming, expressing a mathematical insight through both code and the mathematics involved, helps to elucidate these concepts and include an additional form of mindfulness exercise.

The Curriculum

Weekly Equation
Each week we will be contemplating one mathematical equation in extreme detail. Will move our minds into the structures of that equation and get to know it at its source. The goal to be will be for each of us to develop a deep subjective relationship with the equation. One in which we can perceive that equation as self-evident and one single movement of mathematical truth. This equation will be the “koan” of the week, and each of us will consider and contemplate this equation as our weekly assignment. Part of our contemplation will be to create some small piece of software related to this equation. I will be taking a journey with you. And while I will have probably consider this equation personally before, this practice is never ending and will deepen my comprehension of that equation or topic.


Weekly Coding Technique

Each week we will also be introducing one new computer programming technique. Through the series of classes you will develop a collection of techniques.

Weekly Spiritual Principle
Each week we will also be contemplating one spiritual principle. A spiritual principle like positivity for example, and how to develop that habitual tendency as a part of your karma, mind, and energy.

Weekly Routine Element
Each week we will also be introducing one spiritual routine element. The whole idea is to overtime build a lifestyle that is conducive to the highest intelligence and the greatest happiness. Routines are not instantaneous, they are develop over time.

Weekly Meditation
Every class will begin and end with a meditation. Initial meditation will be there to help us clear our minds and expand our consciousness. The final meditation will be there to integrate what we’ve learned. This will most importantly develop our meditation ability. The meditation approach will be metaphysical where we focus on energy directly.

Dharma Project
The entire class will include a coding related project that is unique to each student and their personal interests. This project will include the application of mathematical topics learned through code. At the end of the course you will have something that you have created that you can use, showcase in your College applications, add to your resume or portfolio, or just enjoy as your own experience.

The topics covered will be dependent on the interests that we have on that particular day. There is no planned curriculum other than the general guiding structure. Topics will also depend on the students present and could range from counting to calculus and other topics.

Why Coding? Contemplate, Experience, Express

Through coding we contemplate, experience, and express mathematics with greater profundity and insight. This also helps us develop a well-structured mind that includes coding structures in addition to mathematical structures. We will be using the p5 JavaScript library designed for artists. This will help you go beyond the limitations of a graphing calculator and have many other applications. This is the same library I use for my art and animations. No coding experience is required.

Why Meditation? Stillness, Clarity, Insight

Meditation is also a part of the classes, where you learn to meditate on the astral or metaphysical plane and the causal or mystical plane, including the chakras and planes of light. This helps awaken intelligence by clearing the aura of impurities so that one can be a clear channel for intelligence and love.

Why Spirituality? Heart, Wisdom, Principles

An all inclusive spiritual practice that combines Bhakti Yoga and Zen Buddhism including the spiritual principles of beginner’s mind, gentleness, the path of least resistance, positivity, detachment, all of which promote the embodiment of intelligence and love. We seek to develop heart first and foremost, where mathematics and code support and develop this aspiration. In the program you get to build your own spiritual routine that you can grow and evolve moving forward on your own. The routine includes meditation, math and coding as well as the general lifestyle elementals that support overall spiritual development. You’ll also have a Dharma Project or creative project. This project is unique to you and is intended to help you deepen your personal passion, inspiration or creative talent. The project will be an application of everything you learn and be developed throughout the ten weeks.

Tentative Curriculum Schedule

  • Week 1: Perfect Squares, Cubes, and Special Cases with Geometric Properties. In base 10 and Novel Bases: Binary, Octimal, Dodecimal, and Hexadecimal.
  • Week 2: Square Roots and Cube Roots, Algebraic Quadratics and Cubics.
  • Week 3: Completing the Square, the Quadratic Formula and the Visual Interpretation of the Golden Ratio (0.618)
  • Week 4: The Integral and Derivative of x Squared and x Cubed, and the Power Rule for Derivatives. Also, the Product Rule and Triple Product Rule.
  • Week 5: Sine and Cosine and the Unit Circle. And, the Six Trigonometric Functions.
  • Week 6: The Integral and Derivative of Sine and Cosine.
  • Week 7: Pi and Tau, Circle Circumference, Circle Area, the Volume of a Pyramid.
  • Week 8: The Volume and Surface Area of a Sphere. And, Higher Dimensional Spheres.
  • Week 9: Pythagorean Theorem.
  • Week 10: Series Expansion for e^x, Sine, Cosine, and Euler’s Formula.

If you don’t know these topics or think you can’t get them, we will be starting from the beginning to see them in this enlightened way. Zero foundation is required. If you think you know them and that this doesn’t apply to you, you may be surprised. What is 18^2 in Hexadecimal? Why is the integral of sin from 0 to pi exactly two? Can you see these as self-evident truths with a single step visual proof? Can you do them without thought, thinking so softly that all your spiritual energy is retained?

“Mathematics is not about rote memorization and the algorithmic application of techniques. Mathematics is a personal conversation with the universe in which one perceives mathematical elegance directly.” The Bhakti Math Guru

The Bhakti Math Guru

Adam Wes is The Bhakti Math Guru. In Yoga, Bhakti is the spiritual path of becoming more conscious through embodiment and actions of love in life and meditation. To bring the path of Bhakti into mathematics is beautiful.

As a mathematician, it is to…
– Do math from the heart with the heart’s intuition.
– Do math from the effortlessness of silence and stillness, without internal resistance or the dissipation of energy.
– Do math for the love of the moment, for the inspiration of the activity itself, and not for some future result.
– Do math as a mindfulness exercise in which the activity is a means by which one cultivates and enters into a high-consciousness state of mind.

As a mathematical teacher or Guru it is to…
– Teach math seeing and knowing the student’s needs through intuition and love.
– Teach math helping the student from where they are to take the next step that is most natural and beneficial to them.
– Teach math honoring the student’s unique predilections and inspirations in life to help them bring their study into their unique interests.
– Teach math with patience and not with attachments to the result or any particular outcome, but to allow the student and universe to reveal the organic unfolding of the student’s development.
– Teach math as a means by which students can develop as integrated beings of love and consciousness to live beyond separateness and with wisdom and personal knowledge of their true selves.
– Teach math as a means by which students can gain command of their mind and empower their lives.

These are some of the unique way that Adam teaches math as The Bhakti Math Guru.

Adam is a Bhakti Yogi who has studied enlightenment formally as a solo-city-monk for 11 years and informally as a spiritual seeker of truth and love for lifetimes. Many a winter day has Adam sat for hours in the cold meditating on love and truth. Adam’s study of enlightenment which includes the disciplines of meditation, occult energy work, mystical awareness, makes him a powerful and transformative teacher for you to work with.

Adam is also a life-long mathematician who’s contemplated mathematics for 35 years, as well as its implications in physics as a means of discovering truth. In this sense Adam is also a cosmologist. While mathematics offers insight into the nature of duality, true knowledge comes through meditation, and mathematics acts as a powerful spiritual practice in which the meditator develops the powers of mind and heart. True knowledge is not of the mind but rather of the heart, and this is the proper place for mathematics in the spiritual seeker’s life.

Adam is also a computer programmer and mathematical artist, who uses mathematics and code to experience and share mathematical elegance. You can see and purchase Adam’s artwork at his Etsy store or on his mathematical art website. 

Adam has developed his comprehension of mathematics and ability to teach mathematics as a tutor of 15 years, where he has taught students privately for many thousands of hours. He has also founded and operated a tutoring agency that employed over 250 tutors over its five years of operation before Adam disbanded it to focus on spirituality ten years ago. Adam has been developing his unique comprehension in mathematic and ability to convey his insights to students of all ages to a profound degree. Adam has a degree in Physics from the University of Washington where he continued his childhood journey of exploring the universe through mind and heart.

“Learn to see mathematical truth for yourself as a self-evident expression of the universe. Let equations be known not as memorized superficial understanding but rather as descriptions of your own perception of mathematical truth. From counting to calculus, math can be done this way. And the benefits are profound. This is the future of mathematics education.” The Bhakti Math Guru
