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!

-J

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

Divine Mother’s Blessings Encoded on the Path to ”Total Surrender”: Deep Learning and the Praxis of Going Beyond Mind

Divine Mother’s Blessings Encoded on the Path to Total Surrender: Deep Learning and the Praxis of Going Beyond Mind

“Strength shall be with her like a conqueror’s sword

And from her eyes the Eternal’s bliss shall gaze”.

– Savitri, Book III: The Book of the Divine Mother Canto IV: The Vision and the Boon,

Sri Aurobindo                                                                       Divine Mother Symbol

The dark ignorance of matter

And the falsehood of its twin, the mind

Are billion of years old;

They are the expressions in the cosmic web

They are the connecting fibers

And yet, they are limited to space and time

Only articulate to the senses and not beyond

The Self is the witness to these things

Untouched and completely pure

it’s the shining source of all bliss

The conscious existence of the self is timeless

Satyam Jnaanam Anantam Brahma (Taittiriya Upanishad 2.1.1)

The journey of man’s quest to higher consciousness takes place under the auspices of the Self

The operational hermeneutics is designed by the Divine Mother (Adi Shakti)

With signals encoded on the path to total surrender (Samarpan)

No one does surrender

There’s no doer, only a witness

The Little Child Krishna

Caught up in web of ignorance and doubt

He tries every other path that he can grasp

And fails and dies,

And comes back again and again

To script the tragedy of the earth

An Ecstatic Sri Ramakrishna

Sri Ramakrishna in Ecstasy

Shakespearean rag or a Sophoclean grandeur?

Or, a comedy entailed in the irony of Waiting?

The circus goes on…

With new players and plays

And their farcical movements? 2nd or 3rd?

Symphonies are lost and found

Cities destroyed and annihilated

And prayers broken by a cacophony of words

or under the effect of gravity?

(Is it not the source and origin of the very idea of  weight?)

Working out mathematical models for further evolution

Who has passed all these eons from pre-big bang to the particle smashers?

Who has survived to see what it is and shall be?

Who has endured the pain and the joy?

Who?

Tagore and Einstein

Tagore Einstein Meeting

The historians or the evolutionary biologists?

Or the theoretical physicists?

Or the technocrats?

Or the Politicians?

Only, the Observer is…

And surrender happens

Have faith in the Self (The Brahman)

And be blessed by the Mother

When King Janaka asked Ashtavakra

About knowledge, liberation and dispassion

The answer was:

”na pṛthvī na jalaṁ nāgnirna vāyurdyaurna vā bhavān eṣāṁ sākṣiṇamātmānaṁ cidrūpaṁ viddhi muktaye” 1.3

”You do not consist of the elements – earth, water, fire, air or even ether. To be liberated, know yourself as consisting of consciousness, the witness of these”.

”yadi dehaṁ pṛthak kṛtya citi viśrāmya tiṣṭhasi adhunaiva sukhī śānto bandhamukto bhaviṣyasi”

”If only you will remain resting in consciousness, seeing yourself as distinct from the body, then even now you will become happy, peaceful and free from bonds”. 1.4

Are there any direct messages on consciousness than these?

Be touched by the grace of the divine mother and know thyself

Allow openness and not rigidity

Let the neural networks reconfigure themselves

the descent of consciousness has to take place from a higher dimension

from the noumenal center

then, you have abandoned the doer in you

And awakening is waking-up to what is here

And now….witnessing

Om Maa

O Friend, I cannot tell.

 

I learned to laugh through tears and staked

My all to glimpse His Face:

I won Him by becoming His,

Lost all and gained His Grace.

 

Relentlessly He weaned me from

My lesser loves, my kin,

Till even the mate I once had hailed

Loomed far and alien.

 

Now dead I am grown to fear and shame

In my lone quest for Thee:

Strange, none befriends when thou becom’st

One’s friend, O Mystery!

(Song that came to Indira Maa after 14 hours of meditation at Mussorie, 1949. Dadaji, i.e. Sri Dilip Kumar Roy translated it into English.

MY FIRST MEETING WITH SRI AUROBINDO:

Sri Dilip Kumar Roy: “You must, then, realize it yourself first?”

Sri Aurobindo: “Obviously. Be it a new realization or light or idea- it must first descend into one person from whom it radiates out in widening circles to others. Doesn’t the Gita, too, say that the ways of the best of men act as models to the rest? In the Integral Yoga, however, the work starts after the realization, whereas in most other yogas it ends with the realization. The reason is that I am primarily at manifestation, for which I must, obviously, reach the Supramental myself before I can bring it to bear on our earth-consciousness. For this, ascent has to be the first step- descent is the next.”

Sri Dilip Kumar Roy: “How will the descent work, to start with?”

Sri Aurobindo: “When the Supramental touches our being, our consciousness will overpass its twilit stage of the mental, where the Divine Truth is distorted, into the upper regions where light has free play, that is, where there are no such distortions. This will in its turn bring about the transformation of mind, life and body, as that will be one of the functions of the Force as its inception in the world of matter, generally- to usher in subsequently the new era in man’s living. You must not misunderstand me. What I want to achieve is the bringing down of the Supramemtal to bear on this being of ours so as to raise it to a level higher than the mental and from there change and sublimate the workings of mind, life and body….”

More than 16 UK and international artists will transform some of the most iconic and celebrated landmarks, streets and location across London’s West including Carnaby, Chinatown London, Leicester Square, Mayfair, Oxford Circus, Piccadilly, Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street St James’s, Seven Dials, Covent Garden and St James’s Market, into a vast outdoor exhibition space, offering audiences new and surprising perspectives on the world famous streets and iconic landmarks.

 

As well as getting the opportunity to witness some of the area’s most historic landmarks in a dazzling new light, visitors and Londoners will be able to sample a host of other incredible activities taking place in the area throughout January – so why not make a weekend of it this January and enjoy the unlimited opportunities for discovery across London’s West End.

 

Lumiere Returns To London’s West End

 

*more installations to be announced in January 2018

 

ACROSS LONDON’S WEST END

Be sure not to catch the The Umbrellas Project which will be taking on the West End streets. A choreographed performance piece using LED umbrellas by Bristol-based Cirque Bijou which has been working with community groups in Redbridge, Greenwich, Lambeth and Waltham Forest through a series of choreography and performance workshops to create a glowingly beautiful artwork that will pop-up in different locations across London’s West End.

 

CARNABY

Head to Ganton Street to view the 51 oversized Light Bulbs suspended from the sky. The LED light bulbs light up in a rainbow of colours, creating a spectacular light show. The Giant Plug on Ganton Street is a characteristic feature of Carnaby. This award-winning piece of urban art is lit up at night and changes colour regularly.

 

CHINATOWN LONDON

A flock of extraordinary flame coloured Flamingos will waft serenely amongst the crowds in Chinatown London, designed by the ever imaginative Jo Pocock and the Lantern Company.

 

GROSVENOR SQUARE, MAYFAIR

Northern Lights by Aleksandra Stratimirovic at Grosvenor Square is inspired by the enthralling experience of viewing the aurora borealis, recreated in a spectacular and poetic natural light phenomenon in Grosvenor Square. Passers-by will be able to experience the wonder and magic of the shimmering northern lights in a city and a place where they would never naturally appear.

 

LEICESTER SQUARE GARDENS

One of the oldest and most established entertainment centers in the UK will be transformed into an evocative illuminated world, bringing a sense of the wild into the heart of the city, lead artist Jo Pocock and the Lantern Company – Nightlife. Populated by a host of curious nocturnal creatures in a luminous secret garden, the installation plays with the tension between wild spaces and urban city life. A world away from the hustle and bustle of the capital, this busy, central area will become a space for quiet reflection and a gathering place to celebrate the beautiful and wild.

 

SOUTH AUDLEY STREET, MAYFAIR

South Audley Street in Mayfair will host Bough 3 a new commission for Lumiere London by British artist and lighting designer, Simon Corder – vivid tubes of fluorescent light will grow up the façade of this significant Mayfair building, climbing like ivy up the wall, over and around the ornate decorations in the brickwork, bathing the surrounding site in a soft blue light. This will be a third in a series of Bough projects by Corder, previously installed in Glasgow and at Oxo Tower Wharf.

 

PICCADILLY

The Royal Academy of Arts on Piccadilly will become the canvas for a brand new installation inspired by the flowing lyrical movements of Matisse’s dancing figures. Artist Rhys Coren has created Love, an animation of two intricately paper-cut figures who will dance elegantly across the building’s stone facade, clasping each other in romantic embrace.

 

REGENT STREET

The world famous Hotel Café Royal on Regent Street will host Voyage by Camille Gross & Leslie Epzstein (France). The installation is inspired by the physical journey through time and space, from the Industrial Revolution, through the Belle Epoque and both World Wars, arriving at the present day. It is characterised by the immediate and frantic speed of travel, all measured by the rhythmic movement of a giant illuminated clock and projected onto the facade of the Hotel Café Royal building on Regent Street.

 

ST JAMES’S MARKET, ST JAMES’S 

At St James’s Market discover Supercube by artist Stefane Masson who will transform 450 ordinary Kilner jars into a magical multi-screen cube full of surprises. A miniature giraffe, a pink elephant or a miniature version of yourself are just some of the many small moving images that can be found when you peer inside one of Masson’s multi-coloured jars.

 

 

SOUTH MOLTON STREET, MAYFAIR

In the heart of Mayfair and just off the bustling Oxford Street, visitors can seek out Impulse by Canadian design practice, Lateral Office, a set of eight illuminated interactive seesaws that invite the public to find their inner-child and play in an urban, public space. The more they move, the more light and sound is produced, to create a kinetic and dynamic experience that is different for each user. The installation creates an intimate space for imaginative play where adults and children alike can experiment to create harmonic patterns through collective movement.

 

 

What’s On In London’s West End During Lumiere

 

From Carnaby to Covent Garden, and Leicester Square to Piccadilly, Regent Street and more, visitors to Lumiere can enjoy dazzling art displays whilst sampling London’s West End’s unrivalled arts and culture, delectable dining, outstanding shopping experience and world-famous hotels.

9th December 2017: Yogishwar Sri Kalipada Guharoy’s Symphony of Love and the Field Dynamics of ‘Tapovan Katha’

kali da the dreamer

Yogishwar Sri Kalipada Guharoy

ABOLITION OF OPPOSITES

ALL OPPOSITES ARE THE VOIDNESS OF MIND WHICH IS WHAT WE ARE- COGNIZED AS SUCH WHEN APPERCEIVED AS VOID OF OPPOSITION.

Purner hashi

Muhurter bashi

Bajiye tole maner swaralipir jhankar

Akhar ankurday hate surya-pushpe nibedwito kare pran

Ei pran e anander swarup-utsho o bandana

Ke bedhechey ei chanda?

Kar patashilpe hriday unmochito hay?

Who renders the heart song that brings in consummation?

Beyond the dialectic of space-time, I am

Forever still

Form pervading forms

Ending in the formless void

In the Xian-Ho-Yogishwara

Unborn unconditional

In the rhythm of the Supreme Divine

All is but love and love….

Hriday mantre “Amar Bhasha Bhalobasha” (Yogishwar Sri Sri Kalipada Guharoy)

Is the vast plan of which we are a part;

Its harmonies are discords to our view,

Because we know not the great themes they serve.”

(Savitri, Sri Aurobindo)

In the calmness of the morning

Light breathing through the cedar and pines

Reflects the flying birds

On the waters of the lake

Frames are tranquilized in the ethereal dolour of this vastness of experience

A profound intelligence is the restful operation on the dynamic rhythm of ‘suchness’

Spontaneous it is, the blooming lotus is the yogic ananda –anubhuti of wu nien

Things as they are…wonderfully crafted by the blessings of the Lord

In one encounter have embraced the whole existence with love

Solemnized by an utter cry of the child who has lost his way (Bhakti-Swarup)

“Who in his heartfelt yearning cries and cries”. (PILGRIMS OF THE STARS, DILIP KUMAR ROY AND INDIRA DEVI)

Naimisharanya: The Original Center of Excellenc       

A finite speck sparkles

On its own it is the life-force

That has the quantum magnitude of all possibilities

Delivering itself through service to the Lord

Where mountains have collapsed the rivers are set free

The ocean meets the ocean

In the forests of Naimisharanya

Multiverse

The holy fire burning

In the rhythm of a mantra

The revelations are true

They are network convergence of proximal and distal timelines

Computing data from non-local hubs

But something higher than that is the wonder of the elusive moment

It is the transcendental nature of the spectacle

That creates the response to liberation

The trees are standing in their pristine glory

Narmada is the face of the sun

Configuration of stars is data encrypted

Only by pure bhakti the key may be turned in

Turned and turned again….

Knowing without knowing

The wind blows through the pines

The sky is laughter unto itself

Witness to all

And these moments that fed the skull and the bones

Relative to the cycle of the yugas

Stand beneath the rock and the river

To tell the author of their lives

All that they shared and many more

Sitting beside the moonlight cave

The holy fire burning…

Are looking at each other

And directing their vision on a ray of empty sunbeam

They are talking about the moment of resolution

Where time has lost its speed in the stillness of the void

And space like a stranger without an address or passport

Is forever arriving on the transit

Walking without walking

At the eternal terminal of no end

Where speechless mind reaches the silence of the stars

In the field where the knower is the known

It then has become the totality of all experiences

Existential, pre-existential and integral brand of the Brahman

Exploring its own potentiality through myriad means

A spark of awareness in its universal plan

Can transcend the material reality of the worlds

By the sweetest interplay of Sankirtan-Lila

Hare Rama Hare Rama

quietness magnified

the body knows this well

the cells are blessed by the MIND

at the summit you see everything and loose

perhaps, the moment’s own reflection on the lake

you wander like a child

aimlessly, among the forest path

amidst the cloudy mountains

till you arrive at the cave of clarity

where you gain the power to recreate any moment in the creation

The total existence is Bhairava

The whole mind is the only Observer

There is nothing else, the dancer and the dance are one

The user experience is reconciled in the conscious awareness of everything.

INTERNATIONAL POP SENSATION RITA ORA SET TO SWITCH ON THE OXFORD STREET CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN PARTNERSHIP WITH THE NSPCC LIGHT UP CHRISTMAS CAMPAIGN

 

Tuesday 7th November 2017 from 5.00pm

Park House, near M&S, Marble Arch, Oxford Street

 

Oxford Street today announced that singer and actress Rita Ora will this year have the honour of switching on its iconic Christmas Lights, officially marking the start of the festive shopping season in London. The hugely anticipated stellar ‘Switch On’ show, now in its 58th year, will commence from 5.00pm on Tuesday 7 November, hosted by Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp and Vick Hope. The event is in partnership with children’s charity NSPCC and Sky Cinema.

 

Rita Ora is one of the UK’s biggest solo artists, with a number one album and a string of chart-topping singles under her belt. She is currently riding high in the charts with three hit singles – ‘Your Song’, ‘Lonely Together’ and her latest track, ‘Anywhere’. The international superstar has appeared in Hollywood blockbusters and on UK and US TV shows, including ‘America’s Next Top Model’ and as a judge on ‘The X Factor’. The British star also received an Oscar nomination in 2015 for ‘Grateful’, which she recorded for the film, ‘Beyond the Lights’.

 

Rita Ora commented: “London is my home so switching on the Oxford Street lights means a lot to me. I used to love coming to Oxford Street to see the Christmas lights when I was younger so this means even more to me. I wish everyone a magical Christmas.”

 

The iconic event will be packed full with excitement from start to finish as UK pop sensations Matt Terry and 5 After Midnight light up the stage with live performances throughout the evening.

 

Since being crowned the winner of The X Factor 2016, Matt Terry has had a top three hit with the Ed Sheeran written ‘When Christmas Comes Around’, and featured on the huge summer anthem ‘Subeme La Radio’ with worldwide superstars Enrique Iglesias and Sean Paul. Earlier this month he released his own single ‘Sucker For You’, and he’s currently working on his highly anticipated debut album.

 

5 After Midnight also rose to stardom on The X Factor 2016, wowing TV audiences of millions week after week with their slick vocals and high energy dance routines, quickly gaining themselves a loyal fan base. They released their hugely anticipated debut single ‘Up in Here’ in summer 2017, featuring an impossibly catchy hook by rapper DMX and written by MNEK and Raye. The boys are currently releasing a four-track EP called ‘The Source’ for the fans ahead of their debut album released through SYCO.

 

Members of the cast from the Tony-Award nominated musical, Five Guys Named Moe, will also make a special appearance at the ‘Switch On’ show. The audience will enjoy a high-octane 1940s, New Orleans-themed jazz show. There’s no party like a Five Guys party!

 

Over 750,000 bright white LED bulbs and 1,778 baubles will decorate the mile-long stretch of Oxford Street, in London’s West End, the most visited destination in the UK taking inspiration from falling snowflakes to create the real feeling that Christmas is coming.

 

The ‘Switch On’ kick-starts the festive season and celebrates the excitement and fun involved in Christmas planning and partying. Over the course of the next six weeks Oxford Street and its brands have joined forces to deliver a series of seasonally themed in-store activations that are synonymous with the Christmas period– party wears, festive beauty looks, tree decorating and much more.

 

Everything you need for Christmas – shopping, dining, entertainment and more is available on Oxford Street and a series of masterclasses hosted by retailers along with gift advisers and personal stylists will help take the stress out of shopping.

 

For the second year running, Oxford Street has partnered with the NSPCC, coinciding with the charity’s ‘Light Up Christmas for Children’ campaign.

 

Luciana Magliocco, Head of Consumer Marketing at New West End Company, the organisers of the event, says: “The Oxford Street Christmas Lights Switch On is one of the most popular dates on London’s annual events calendar, and we are thrilled to have global superstar Rita Ora and a stellar line-up of talent joining us to mark the occasion. Along with our partners, Capital and NSPCC, we look forward to kick starting the festive shopping season in style with what is sure to be a fantastic evening of entertainment.”

 

Peter Wanless, Chief Executive of the NSPCC, said: “Not only is the Oxford Street Christmas Lights Switch On the start of the festive season for many but it also marks the launch of our ‘Light up Christmas for Children’ campaign. With our partners Sky Cinema we will be asking for the public’s help this Christmas to raise vital funds for Childline so we can be there for every child who needs us.”

 

Capital Breakfast’s Roman Kemp said: “The Oxford Street Christmas Lights are an iconic part of the festive season in London. I’m so excited to be hosting the Switch On event with Vick. We can’t wait to join tens of thousands of Londoners and celebrate the start of Christmas festivities across the city.”

 

The Oxford Street Christmas Lights Switch On promises to be a truly magical evening and not to be missed!

In Search of the Double-Negative: Meditation as the Seed and Means for Thoughtless-Consciousness

3 Advices of Lord Atisha: “Place before you the vajra of no dissuasion”

“Place before you the vajra of no shame”

“Place before you the vajra of pure wisdom”.

A spontaneous way of understanding rises when you are on your own searching for the inner peace in the supra-plastic womb of your internal creation. Total creation is continued in  a dot which is the singularity point also known as the immaculate background. Blissful co-existence is an internal state of the primordial mind immersed in ‘rigpa’ or non-dual awareness. Once actions proceed from this sphere of illuminated singularity with complete awareness , then peace can be stabilized on its own following the Way or the Tao or the Brahman. Creation and dissolution or life and death are part of this uni-dimensional matrix that is the way of projection by the act of separation through identification. The unique identity is the double-negative: the absence of the absence of presence and absence, is non-volitional living or true living only known to higher-dimensional beings or Sapta-Rishis and the highest yogic seers and sages. To invoke the supramental one has to go beyond the logic input of the brain and change the neural pathways completely. Then only those connections with that power is possible. More than Nietzschean power, it has to do with the consciousness or awareness of the Self as the dancer, automatic reverberation of the heavenly bodies taking place inside the micro-orbit of the body-mind complex as mantric frequency of highest order. Meditation is the seed and when the seed bursts you reach the state of ‘twice-born’. Eternal knowledge leads to cessation of birth and death.
