Dialogue between the Master Architect and the Disciple Student/The Free-Learner Experience: Examination of the Laws of Creation  and the ‘Intelligent Mind’ Behind All 

Student: We are isolated yet having a social structure that connects us using technology

Architect: You have to admit that you all are individual self-organizing units that actually work in isolation as well same as in unison. I think you will not follow the above statement correctly because your judgment and the meaning-processing mind is not fully developed. Social connections i.e. between humans and with the environment is equally necessary as existence itself – different parts must combine and recombine to give essence to the creational principle which is both unison and differentiation. Here, of course, differentiation is not based on any injected social distinction that you have incorporated based on your conditioned prejudice and preferences. Even in the midst of deeper isolation which is a figment of your false ego, you are deeply interconnected with the world and with the creation. So, there is nothing called isolation in the sense that you have defined here contextually.

Student: Do we have a ‘intelligent mind’ which can process ‘real meaning’ that makes sense to us and the creation?

Architect: You have a mind that is primitive or aboriginal which is creative to the core but only when you step out to wear the mask that hides your real identity then you make barriers for yourself to process meaning because you then curb your natural instincts which are based on pure feelings. These barriers are already there in the false identity that you drag with yourself wherever you go thereby obscuring your ‘self’ to enjoy the ‘beautiful experience’ that creation allows bringing you on the brink of despair than enlightenment. ‘Pure Intelligence’ is like an ocean with waves that needs to be accessed, it’s like a stream flowing inside you from the origins – you have to be a perfect navigator or mariner to be in contact with the field where everything rests eternally. In different points of time in the history of your civilization, higher beings have arrived to give you a ‘message’ which afterwards was used by some foolish men on earth to propel their own ships of agenda. Once the process of meaning went wrong there was no chance of revival or recovery from that point. This almost explains if not fully the slow process of human development in terms of consciousness.

Student: What is the ‘real meaning’ of our existence?

Architect: The real meaning is not inside the truth that implicates the meaning but it’s residing in the mind which experiences this truth from one point to the other as you  travel towards your origins both physically and non-locally. It’s all that you experience encapsulated in a decompression chamber about all that you don’t experience or will never experience or there to be experienced by anyone beyond any experience at all. That’s a very hard statement and a bit harsh like the cold wintry spell or the hottest summer without rainfall. Let’s for a moment sing this song, it’s a hymn:

an apple entwined                                                   da Vinci Sketch Showing the Flight Pattern of a Bird, circa. 15th Century High Renaissance

the sun that we see, inside and outside

we ride the tide 

above below

zero

little mind in a capsule

lifts itself 

beyond time and space 

grace for us all 

we brace the loveliness in things!

Student: Is our present knowledge efficient? What you mean by loveliness in things? Is there any thing ‘out there’?

Architect: I think your calculus didn’t probe into loveliness in the proper way, it’s a classic case of non-alignment to the core principles of creation. What you have received so far is not knowledge but broken pieces or chunks of raw data that you stored as information systems in your brain as ‘qubits or in your machines as bits. This is very different from knowledge that exists in the creation as free to be used or accessed – this is primarily based on experience which I have already pointed out- that which comes to you naturally in your unconditioned mind – loveliness is a feeling centric experience which connects you to your perennial source. The source of this is within your self and also outside the physical finite realm that you cognize with apparently as ‘things known’ to you. What is known is alternately unknown to you and vice versa. Try to comprehend the deeper sub-strata of reality that confronts you which can be subsequently experienced irrespective of the social garb that you have created to make the world run its administrative functions. Everything is ‘out there’ as you experience and simultaneously ‘in here’ as you experience it, it’s only the loveliness that matters most, each adding value to the system by quantum integration of the multiple infinite sub-units that makes both the macro and micro-cosm which we sometimes call existence patterned as geometry of the unknown zero expanding and contracting for a life beyond experience into the pure consciousness of the loveliness that matters most and is of utmost significance.

If you didn’t comprehend this then probe into the word ‘loveliness’, investigate the very structural symmetry underlying that information pattern, program the ‘qubits’ to process what you will in nanoseconds but still there is something that you will not know about this creation. But, for a second if you open your mind to possibilities without any sequential alignment to the creational mystery of loveliness you will know it as the face of the great moon or the tree ripening its fruit or the dog watching the sun hibernate beneath a thick veil of clouds bringing rain to end the draught of spiritual instability and utter neurosis.

scattered sun everywhere

the petals of the moon are rose-tinted hues pink or purple and white like the sea-foam

waves eternally in

and out

loveliness is the lonely child apprehending the creation in ‘things made from itself’

when you are free as a quasar or as the ‘imoglitan vran’

nothing is preconceived

so it can be a tree or a stone or a bullock cart

And nothing at all

Except the loveliness…

of a bird in flight…

uncognized beauty is the true essence that is forever the labour of the creation

recognize yourself as a part within that…

Student: I thank you for this dialogue, my final question and by no means the end of it all- Can we reach a higher stage in the creation by the process of evolution?

Master Architect: The smallest point is a circle as a dot -it circumambulates the creation faster than light but you don’t see it. But if you can visualize it by the creative manifestation of your mind then you are reaching a grand scale in the process of evolution that other master races have comprehended. Miss-comprehension is a malady, a disease no-comprehension is even better than it. At the bottom of your self you are left with interactions that bring more interactive fields which generate the evolution of your biological and spiritual entity. We are all entities unconfined by the creational law – you and me and the creation itself are loveliness that we behold together as the constant play between the ‘player’ and the ‘architect’, the piper,  each becoming the other and reversing the role till there is no role to be assumed or prophesied in the realm of the eternal loveliness where beauty wraps itself in the honey the butterfly seeks, each drop making the flower more dearer to itself and to nature, and, each strand of color in the wings making it happier to brush the air with the instinct of an artist hidden in the solitude of the bud reprise to the sun this very dialogue between the Creatrix and the Student of Transformation. 

In the end, just remember one thing – you are here to live the ‘eternal moment’ as you wished before you began!

Important Notice:

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existing. One cannot help but be in awe when one contemplates the mystery of eternity, of life, of the marvellous structure of reality. It is not enough if one tries to comprehend only a little of this mystery everyday”. – Albert Einstein

As Empty Oneness

It becomes still as the eye of the night heron

Waiting for a slight flutter in the lake

The fish underneath swirling unknowingly

At last death conjoins life to another life

To experience the soul’s eternal journey to its source

Myriad beings are caught in this web

They are all eternal in the flame that can never extinguish

Brahman in the stone,

In a mouthful of water gulped down by a dying man

In the streets where children dance,

In the laughter of the skies when thunder and lightning strike

Oceans are surging with waves of compassion

When you grow old you are young

Beyond all that you are the ageless spirit:

The eye of the heron or fins of the fish

A supremely transcendental being

I am the Bodhisattva Manjushri

I am the essence of the Supreme Essence

That comes out of the void and goes back to the void

As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air;
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherits shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep”.

The 6 precepts of Tilopa are No Thought, No Reflection, No Analysis, No Cultivation, No Intention; let it settle itself. That is complete surrender to the Divine Mother’s Force and Grace. It exercises ‘Sahaja Mukti’ or ‘easy’ or ‘natural state’ of the liberated sage. Immediate Awakening and Naturalness are the same thing, it is the most direct way communicated not by the sutras but through direct contact with the Divine.

They are not subject to death and desolation

They carry with them scriptures on the stone

Worshipped for ages

By all sentient beings

By the wind and the seas

By the fireflies, the heron and the pike

Alone She stood like a red vermillion sun

That lights the stars in the spiral galaxies

Her tender lips kissed by the sky and the grass

She played as a child

In the wild

Like raindrops on the lotus leaf

Adumbrating the great design of her creation

Inside the heart her rhythm raptures the soul

There are no differentiating lines

But only a still centre

Where the lotus blooms

To delight her eyes

The inner rhythm manifesting the object of her Will

That cannot but be only from the naught

Adore every passing moment

By a touch without touching

Grace to the flying birds

That will become the frieze on a Grecian urn.

In the Zen, Being-Now State, it is not that moments change or that time flies but rather that the Observer is brought to the present, as if time is created by the presence of the observer who witnesses the event of the frog jumping into the pond. The spectator or observer being there at that moment creates its own ontology. Moments occur and perception follows it and its all Empty Cognizance.

ART AND MINDFULNESS:EXPRESSION OF THE TRANSCENDENTAL UNITY IN MAN by having a discourse with the Universe

romain-rollande-and-tagore

“Be reverent before the dawning day. Do not think of what will be in a year, or in ten years. Think of to-day.”
― Romain Rolland, Jean Christophe. Vol 1

“We are the music-makers

We are the dreamers of dreams”.

“The individual man must exist for Man the great, and must express him in disinterested works, in science and philosophy, in literature and arts, in service and worship”. (Rabindranath Tagore)

Mother and Sri Aurobindo

Divine Mother and Sri Aurobindo

“But if Art is to reach towards the highest, the Indian tendency must dominate. The spirit is that in which all the rest of the human being reposes, towards which it returns and the final self-revelation of which is the goal of humanity. Man becomes God, and all human activity reaches its highest and noblest when it succeeds in bringing body, heart and mind into touch with spirit. Art can express eternal truth, it is not limited to the expression of form and appearance. So wonderfully has God made the world that a man using a simple combination of lines, an unpretentious harmony of colours, can raise this apparently insignificant medium to suggest absolute and profound truths with a perfection which language labours with difficulty to reach. What Nature is, what God is, what man is can be triumphantly revealed in stone or on canvas.

Behind a few figures, a few trees and rocks the supreme Intelligence, the supreme Imagination, the supreme Energy lurks, acts, feels, is, and, if the artist has the spiritual vision, he can see it and suggest perfectly the great mysterious Life in its manifestations brooding in action, active in thought, energetic in stillness, creative in repose, full of a mastering intention in that which appears blind and unconscious. The great truths of religion, science, metaphysics, life, development, become concrete, emotional, universally intelligible and convincing in the hands of the master of plastic art, and the soul of man, in the stage when it is rising from emotion to intellect, looks, receives the suggestion and is uplifted towards a higher development, a diviner knowledge.”

– Sri Aurobindo, The National Value of Art, 1909

ART IS AN ORGANIC EXPRESSION OF THE TRANSCENDENTAL PERSONALITY OF MAN; IT MIRRORS HIS SOUL THAT EXTENDS TO BECOME THE UNIVERSE AND THE UNIVERSE IS HIM IN ALL ITS LUMINOSITY. THEREFORE, HIGHEST ART IS A SYNERGY BETWEEN MAN AND THE UNIVERSE THAT IS MANIFESTED AS AN EXPERIENCE OF AWARENESS. THE PRIMAL MIND ALONE GIVES BIRTH TO ART, ITS THE STORY OF THE UNIVERSE, ITS THE VIBRATION OF THE COLOURS OF COMPASSION, OF LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP,OF STRUGGLE FOR EXISTENCE WHICH FINALLY CONSUMMATES IN THE BLISSFUL STATE OF ‘ANANDA’ – THIS IS PERHAPS THE INDIA STORY – THE STORY OF MANY LIVES TRANSMUTING INTO ONE, FOREVER AND FOREVER….

Niyeti Chadha, Untitled, 3.5 x 6 inches, Isograph pen and water colour on paper 2015

In the context of South Asia, with histories of colonialism, ethnic divisions, communal tensions,marginalization, border disputes, living indigenous traditions whose needs and demands contest impositions of political power, urbanization, language politics, and centuries of conquests and border fluidity, maps have been imposed upon maps. Such projects are often ‘carto-histories’ or ‘carto- biographies’ written by agents of power. The irony remains that despite attempts at ‘harmonious’assimilation of parts into a whole, maps are instrumental only when inferred in parts. Lived experience of these inscribed spaces present an entirely different vocabulary of social relations, cultural differences

and particularities, unfamiliar landscapes, and even quotidian symptoms of political and diplomatic relations.

Waseem Ahmed, untitled, Pigment colour, Silver leaf on archival Vasli Paper 2015

Waseem Ahmed’s delicate use of the miniature style, explores the politically charged terrain of issues and identity. The works visit myths and anecdotes to critique the current, often media generated, caricaturing of the Islamic identity.

Thisath Thoradeniya, who is based in Sri Lanka, picks up the figure of the joker, who occupies the margins of society and has no ostensible relevance except as an entertainer. Yet his comical acts mirror his context and becomes a narrative of testimony. The joker becomes an appropriate channel for the artist to articulate the anxieties stemming from his own personal experiences. Niyeti Chadha is preoccupied by the transient topographies of urban spaces – ever climbing skylines, buildings under construction and the whir that entwines them. Her abstract works enmesh these various geographies, often hyperbolically, giving primacy to the experience of these landscapes and necessarily
escape fidelity to actual architectural spaces in urban India.
The Gond artist Bhajju Shyam invokes the folklore of his village in Madhya Pradesh in his art, creating a contemporary idiom infused with traditional style and content. As a storyteller, his works capture rural and marginalized histories in a form that is disappearing from mainstream, globalized art contexts.
These works which will be exhibited as part of The India Story (TIS), capture narratives that are alternative to media and political narratives, overturning imposed collective identities within South Asia.

About Latitude 28
Through curated shows, careful strategizing and discovering emerging artists with exciting practices, Latitude 28 over the years has become synonymous with cutting edge art coming out of the country, seeking out fresh perspectives in its attempt to stimulate commercial interest in new waves of art- making. The establishment aims to cultivate a space where collectors and art enthusiasts can interact with younger artists and their practices.It provides a horizontal environment where younger artists are
able to contextualise their work alongside the masters of Indian art, experiment with medium, material and institutional critique. We have supported Kartik Sood, Anindita Dutta, and Shweta Bhattad in their innovative practices, exhibiting them alongside veterans such as Anupam Sud and Baiju Parthan. The gallery collection consequently includes cutting edge contemporary alongside modern masters.
Latitude 28 has been imagined as an incubation space, generating ideas through curatorial projects, site-
specific artworks, artist talks and curated walks. Exhibitions such as ‘In You Is The Illusion Of Each Day’
(curated by Maya Kovskaya, 2011), ‘Slipping Through The Cracks’ (curated by Meera Menezes, 2012),
‘Crossing Over’ (curated by Ambareen Karamat, 2013) and ‘Sacred/Scared’ (curated by Nancy Adajania,
2014) tried to initiate renewed readings of artworks within art historical/socio-political contexts.
Latitude 28 frequently travels to International art fairs, and supports our artists’ presence at biennales
around the world. The gallery has been part of Art Gwangju (2012), Art HK (2013) [solo booth project by
Prajakta Palav], Dhaka Art Summit (2014), and most recently Art Dubai (2015) [solo booth project by
Dilip Chobisa]. Latitude 28 is also committed to generating discourse on contemporary art through
projects that are not-for-profit, interact with the public sphere, and commission research articles and
critical writing from critics, curators and researchers. We also partner with similar initiatives, facilitating
several special projects at the India Art Fair over the years.
This investment in the discursive prompted Latitude 28 to organize TAKE on Writing | Critic-Community:
Contemporary Art Writing in India with TAKE on art (its sister publication), an intensive destination workshop in Goa to cultivate dialogue among peers on art criticism. Most recently, the gallery supported

It enjoyed a charade among autumnal flowers

And burning like a flame

For the consolation of words

That became a stupa of silence

Going Back to the Essence: “He who in action sees inaction and action in inaction…he has accomplished all his work” (Bhagavadgita)

f3

Dharmakaya, Samij Datta, Digital Art /Artist’s Impression, 2012

The single-mindedness of bare attention is a key feature of practicing Mindfulness. Everything is just basic space where apparently ‘things’ get configured or are arranged in the phenomenal world for us to experience. Space and Awareness are both the same thing and they are inseparable. If sugar is space, then sweetness is the awareness of it. But don’t think of awareness of the sweetness of sugar as an Emergent Property, it is not. They cannot be separated. In fact, space is awareness, and, awareness is space. But space is a non-euclidean geometric manifold within the phenomenal universe or in Bohm’s explicate order. There is three-fold space which are mingled in one, the space of pure empty Rigpa or non-dual awareness which enfolds within it the 2 other spaces. This is Chidakasha, the space of primordial awareness which beyond cause and effect and it has no beginning or end. Then it unfolds the mind-space or thought-space which is information space of all events in all timelines in the multiverse. This is Chittakasha, the realm of quantum-energy field or Einstein’s 4 dimensional space-time, however subtle, this space is mentally perceptible but still dualistic compared to Primordial Consciousness Space or Chidakasha. This unfolds into Mahakasha, the universal physically real gross space that we interact with containing stars, galaxies within universes. Awareness is available in all the 3 space-vehicles depending on the conditioning. The Non-dual Awareness Space or Rigpa is empty, as also the 2 other spaces and the knowing of it is Realisation. Well, three-fold space is actually not mingled, but they are pre-mixed which means Chittakasha and Mahakasha are already present in the Chidakasha in an involuted form. The gradual unfolding is the process of evolution through manifestation. Bohm’s Explicate order or the 3-d space is the world of relativity where opposites impose dual conditioning, splitting awareness into subject and object for experience to take place. This is the physical sensory realm, the information being managed at a realm subtler than it, in the Thought-Space or Chittakasha or Bohm’s Implicate Order. Karmic propensities based on cause and effect originate from though-space of still dualistic consciousness. But since the origin of space is empty, therefore, it can take any form without any hindrance. If form is understood not just as thing but as an appearance, a functioning, a process of manifestation then it enables us to see correctly in a non-objective way giving us the self-realization. This is the non-dual awareness. Finally, ”functioning” itself is void and ”voidness” is ”functioning”.

“If it is no problem, why mention it.

Everything spoken means that, 

it’s opposite, & everything else.

I’m alive, I’m dying.”

Moments of Awareness (Dogen’s Existential Moments or ‘uji’) or Satori are those non-linear discontinuous moments of empty congizance cut out from an apparent continuous time-line where the subject-object split is apperceived and transcended. It requires Total Attention and Clear Awareness in our daily life. The prescription for accomplishing this was given by the Buddha himself in an early sutra: “In what is seen there must be just the seen; in what is heard there must be just the heard; in what is sensed (as smell, taste or touch) there must be just what is sensed; in what is thought there must be just the thought”. (Udana I, translated by Nyanaponika Thera)

The attainment of non-duality is the goal of spiritual evolution. Whatever reality the manifold phenomena possess is empirical and illusory, vyavaharika, but, non-duality is paramarthika, absolute and immutable. “This entire universe is the Purusha alone, both that which was and that which endures for the future”. (Rig Veda)

Grantchester Meadows, Pink Floyd, 1969

‘And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.
In the lazy water meadow
I lay me down.
All around me,
Golden sunflakes covering the ground,
Basking in the sunshine of a by gone afternoon,
Bringing sounds of yesterday into my city room.’

(Grantchester Meadows, Roger Waters, Pink Floyd, Ummagumma, 1969)

The chirping of the skylark, the acoustic guitar and the chorus intermingling with the meadow silence and the memory of the event in the city room are just examples of empty cognizance. True to the song, amidst the silence of the countryside, one connects naturally with the ‘Dharmakaya’ essence through the bardo experience of life, that essence is non-dual awareness, the primordial purity of the mind free of conceptual thinking. At the same time, it’s expression is conceptual thinking. “The splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water” is one such expression (in the material universe or phenomenal world, all matter comes in discrete units, single electrons, single photons; also discrete moments are entangled with every discrete manifestation of matter-energy) and when we have full attention on that existential moment, we can cut it out from the linear continuity of the explicate order and jump into the thought-space from where it originated, through that with more realization to the primordial essence of the dharmakaya – primordial purity + spontaneous nature. That is our source, we are it, an AWARENESS SPACE OF EMPTY CONGNIZANCE.

“You see time fly

The face changes as the heart breathes and beats

We are not constant

We are an arrow in flight

The sum of the angles change…”/Jim Morrison

Lord Ganesha and Serpent Energy

OM EKADANTAYA NAMAH (3x)

I have seen in the 4 directions,

Rakta Ganesha Tibetan Thangka Painting

Raktya Ganesha, Old Tibetan Thangka

Darkness and light rally against each other
But none wins
And there’s no loser
Gods have descended in the valleys and plains
Angels and demigods have erected mansions out of thin air
But for whom did they create?
Man slept in the caves and bred races of new men
Fought for flesh and bones
And for technology and women

Learned the semoitics of langue and parole

In ‘A game of chess’

Life and death alternating between the seasons

Hearts throbbing

Lord Ganesha Folk Art

Lord Ganesha Folk Art

Like stars in the distant galaxies

Flickering like a candle flame

Surge of windy waves blow them out

Writing epitaph of the songbird and elephant

In gold letters of dust
While woman stood the ground
They declared their independence and solidarity
And children begged or laughed and were killed
Saints and yogis came to help

Cannonized by time

They incarnated the holy syllables
And joined the circus
Preaching divine love
And all that is everlasting
But none will remain in end my friend
This drama soon will fade and die

The Seventh Seal Chess Game

Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (Chase Game Scene Life vs Death)

Another one in another time
An actor will strike his virtue

Amitabha in the Pure Land

Amitabha Buddha In the Pure Land

Polished by the educational enterprises

That start the DIALOGUE OF DUALITY

And PHILOSOPHISE EXISTENTIAL DELIVERANCE
Mountains are strong and old
Streams of cold benevolence
Shrouded the black vestige of a meteorite rock
They called it the sacred lingam
They called it so and perpetuated mantras
They too have their presence and absence
All frail like a spider’s web
Weaving poisons and ambrosia
Reflecting stories endlessly
Mind-Speech-Body continuous

A wheel within a Wheel

Running and Screaming

Like Turner’s ‘Rain, Steam and Speed’
Creating unfathomable mysteries
Like the lotus in a pond or inside a jewel
Counting breathing cycles and beads
For an apparent purification of our selves
For the sake of all sentient beings
For the love of the meadows where the fish and the bird
In the morning mist will poetically embrace the artist and his muse
For the salon in Paris or NY
And breaking champagne bottles amidst a cheerful crowd
Committing sin forsaken by a prayer
In a country churchyard
Or inside the temple
Under the red sky
Where the sun has shed a tear
Like a droplet of rain
Splitting light into seven frequencies
Without knowing what it is
And playfully in the void you will not hear a song, my friend
I promise you will not hear the song anymore
Because end is the beginning of another journey
Too tiresome for a traveller like me
So, I have seen in the 4 directions
Darkness and light rally against each other
But none wins
And there’s no loser

They only extinguish each other.

“Foe-consumer,

Now I have shown you

The yoga that leads

To the truth undying.

First to Vivaswat,

Vivaswat taught it

In turn to Manu,

Next Ikshaku

Learnt it from Manu,

And so the sages

In royal succession

Carried it onward

From teacher to teacher

Till at length it was lost

Throughout ages forgotten.

…….

You and I, Arjuna

Have lived many lives.

I remember them all:

You do not remember

…….

In every age I come back

To deliver the holy,

To destroy the sin of the sinner,

To establish righteousness.

He who knows the nature

Of my task and my holy birth

Is not reborn

When he leaves the body:

He comes to me”.

The Empty Rigpa of Body-Speech-Mind: Releasing the ‘Burden of the Heart Sutra’ by Apperceiving Reality As It Is

There is nothing to understand
Understanding is a conceptual frame of dualistic thinking
At every point you attain speechless Samadhi
That is the abode of Samtabhadra
The knowing of it is enlightenment practice
Space and awareness are inseparable from the beginning
Here space is the primal Void/the vacuum of space that contains
Everything as a potentiality

Outer Space Planets and Spiral Galaxies

Outer Space Planets and Spiral Galaxies

It is characterised by empty cognizance
The knowing is the empty rigpa or non-dual awareness
Do not understand space-time foam at the quantum level as something real
It is not; reality exists at the deepest level by the non-conceptual knowing of it
A fleeting moment is the lattice of space that arranges sheets piled up against each other
Sometimes they collide sometimes they don’t creating a magical world of infinite possibilities

 

Your mind is the source of everything yet it is empty and cognizant
Thoughts generate karma and that runs the machinery of samsara –the dualistic mode
But at the same time if you can use mind in the correct way you can find nirvana in the same space
Both are at the same flow, in tandem, but, then you need to see correctly by using the heart sutra
What is the Heart Sutra? ‘The burden of the Heart Sutra is not the
Nature of objects as such, but the seeing of them-which is what they are,
And the only nature they have’. …’Have you understood?

What is called ‘voidness’ is not an object, but a functioning.

It is void because seeing cannot see seeing.

Strange Days Album Cover The Doors

Strange Days,1967 Album Cover The Doors

Appearing (Form) is not an object, but a functioning. * A process locally functioning as arising, dwelling and ceasing…same process non-locally functioning beyond arising, dwelling and ceasing…both the perceiver and the perceived object are beyond this!

Form appears as an objectivisation.

To empty, therefore, is to apperceive non-objectively, void-seeing, no
thing as such by NO-SEE-ER AS SUCH.
LOVE…LOVE…LOVE…LIGHT SHINING ALWAYS

The source engenders time evolution of the cause-less entity

That which is sought after is the seeker

Playing within multiple sets the drama of unity

After all, laughter is a cry in the open sky

When the birds administer the freedom of meaning

By articulating unintelligible poetic verses

Those that are not bound by concepts

Fountains gushing forth streams are life’s optimum carriers 

Kalida in between the Lights

Yogishwar Sri Kalipada Guharoy

Revolving around the plant, the flower of life   

Maha-avatarBabaji Maharaj

Maha-Avatar Babaji Maharaj

Orbiting like the sun in a magical poise

Quivering like an arrow shot through the star

Words are passed through the bardos of life and death

Into the muted original ocean of transcendental bliss

Is it the stupa of silence impermanently permanent?

Who knows or who dares to know?

Crystal snowflakes atop the mountain

Is the original river’s meandering wakefulness

Sublimely worshipping the unity of space    

White Rose

White Rose: The Worshipper and the Worshipped are One

Where the worshipped and the worshipper are one

Can you now construct this Lila of no beginning no end?

Beg from the universe a bowl of rice?

Can you?

Where is the Original Mind?

Is it not your only mind?

When you apperceive it subjectively

Do you not call it Suchness?

When you apperceive its immutability

Do you not call it Dharmakaya or say, even liberation?

Is it not beyond birth and dying, the pure imperceptible TAO?

What do you call it your own mind?

In the search for true destiny your mind is the adi guru showing you the path by lighting the torch of original wakefulness…
