The Romantic Vision of THE STONE FROM THE SERIES (‘Chintamani’) and The Consciousness of the ‘Origin of Origins’

STONE FROM THE SERIES (‘Chintamani’)  by Artist Samij Datta

“Through the Stars I come, I bring the Chalice (Grail) covered with the Shield”.- Translated Nicholas Roerich from Sanskrit Insciptions Laid On The Stone

“A high and blank negation is not all,

A huge extinction is not God’s last word,

Life’s ultimate sense, the close of being’s course,

The meaning of this great mysterious world

In absolute silence sleeps an absolute Power”.- Book III: The Book of the Divine Mother/Canto II: The Adoration of the Divine Mother- Sri Aurobindo

  “Culture is based on Beauty and Knowledge”- Nicholas Roerich

“Awareness of Beauty saves the world”- Nicholas Roerich

“Wealth in itself does not generate Culture. But broadened and subtler thinking and the sense of Beauty produce that subtlety, that nobility of spirit which are distinctive for a cultured person. It is this kind of person that can build the future of light for its country”- Nicholas Roerich

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,’ – that is all / Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know”. – Ode on a Grecian Urn, John Keats

“A thing of beauty is a joy for ever:
Its loveliness increases; it will never
Pass into nothingness; but still

 will keep

A bower quiet for us, and a sleep
Full of sweet dreams, and health, and quiet breathing”. – Endymion, John Keats

I (Chintamani)2012/Artist: Samij Datta 

“There is an art which in their piedness, shares

With great creating nature”.

Polixenes: Say there be;

Yet nature is made better by no mean,

But nature makes that mean; so ev’n that art,

Which, you say, adds to nature, is an art,

That nature makes” (From Winter’s Tale- Shakespeare)

From L-R: IV, III & II(Chintamani) 2012/Artist: Samij Datta                              

“An auxiliar light

Came from my mind which on the setting sun

Bestow’d new splendor…”- Prelude, William Wordsworth

Sri Krishna Sri Krishna Sri Krishna -In The Eye I Appear Again In The Stone

Jesus on the Chariot of Fire

O Come Peace Thy Last Resort of Destiny, Chant Thy Name On the Holy Mountains of the East,

Shantih Shantih Shantih! – Joy Roy Choudhury

    Samij Datta’s artwork is “beyond” and “divine”

    “In absolute silence sleeps an absolute power” – Sri Aurobindo
    This power is KUNDALINI (The Serpent Power).

    Science, can it “know” this Power? If Science be the
    study of the Relative, then obviously it can not know.
    By “relative”,I mean “Knowledge-by-separation”,
    “Absolute” is “knowledge-by-Identity” which is “meditation”.

    Meditation can touch and awaken the Serpent Power.
    Guru is necessary. GURU’S TOUCH ! GURU becomes TOUCH. GURU = TOUCH = 67.
    Sparsha Diksha!

    Samij Datta’s Geometry-based art-works are laudable.

    • Yes, you are right the important thing here is “knowledge by identity”. The STONE itself is the Guru. Next post will try and explicate few things in the form of QUESTIONS.

        GURU is “Undivided Consciousness” in the sense
        it is ONE. Now consider the Gematria of “One Stone”;
        ONE STONE = 34+73 = 107, and Lo, it has the same
        value as the word – QUANTUM. QUANTUM = 107.
        So, it is the Quantum-Mechanical properties of “ONE STONE”,
        we’re concerned with. Notice also: MIND-SOUL = 40+67 = 107
        Properties of “Mind-Soul” are intricately connected with
        Quantum . Physicists like Amit Goswami are saying the same.

        In the early part of my Physics career, i took EINSTEIN to be my Guru.Now I see , EINSTEIN literally means ONE STONE, so in this angle also we come back to your statement that – STONE is GURU. Now compute the Gematria of Einstein, you’ll find:
