Thoughts Stop Dead
I was tempted to reply with a blank email, but I thought it might be misunderstood!
Experiences -- I've met Oshana twice, once early last year when I came to London with GE and the two of us spent most of the day with Oshana, and the second was one of the Mysteries meetings. I've also been in email contact and I edit the odd article for him.
Generally talking to Oshana makes my thoughts stop dead, and this effect can recur regularly for a few weeks afterwards. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night with my centre of consciousness about a foot above my head, which is a bit odd (especially when I'm lying on my side). What else... spontaneous giggle fits, because the whole thing is just so damn *funny*.
Understanding of Oshana's teaching... now you've *got* to be kidding! I could paraphrase some standard non-duality stuff, if you like. 'Not two', and all that. But really, you can't put it into words... anyway, I know the map so well I can kid people I've been there, but so what? I want to see the territory!
It would be fun if you could precis my teaching - language being your thing and all.
Actually it'll probably get easier as I am extending the standard advaitic conceptual vocabulary.
So it'll be more than 'Not two' or a blank reply - which I am glad you did not send in - that's been done before in another lifetime, and where did it get you! :)
You have, as you describe below, seen some of the territory - keep travelling within it and you will be it.
