"Everything is Presence, even the thing you are holding, avoiding or pursuing. Everything is Presence."


Neelam, a native of Poland, has been giving Satsang internationally since 1996. She is a direct disciple of H. W. L. Poonja (Papaji), who himself awakened to the truth in the presence of Sri Ramana Maharshi.

Neelam shares Satsang with Papaji's blessing. Known for her simplicity, skillful discrimination, and intuitive insight, Neelam gently points toward the truth at the core of us all. With her extensive personal and teaching experience, she uses inquiry to facilitate us in identifying and moving through deep-seated patterns of conditioning, bringing us to rest in Presence.

You can read Neelam's story of meeting Papaji in Roslyn Moore's book, Meeting Papaji.

Fire of Truth

Fire of Truth Satsanga is the non-profit organization founded in 1998 to support Neelam's teaching.

"Our mission: To support the awakening of the individual consciousness into the Oneness of Being."

The functioning of Fire of Truth Satsanga is administered by a volunteer staff and supported by the selfless service (seva) of students and lovers of truth. Learn more about how to support the organization through seva or financial support.

Self Inquiry

Self Inquiry is the very core of this teaching and is based on Sri Ramana Maharshi's guidelines for Self Inquiry. Neelam's unique development of inquiry includes both recognizing our true nature and meeting our conditioning fully, with tenderness.
