Sri Aurobindo

Sri Aurobindo: 143rd Birth Anniversary 15th Aug 2015

“Awakened to the meaning of my heart

That to feel love and oneness is to live

And this the magic of our golden change,

Is all the truth I know or seek, O sage.”

– Savitri, Sri Aurobindo

The Great Crossing Over of the Boat under the Glowing Orb

                                 The Great Crossing Over of the Boat under the Glowing Orb

‘At dusk the cock announces the dawn;

At midnight, the bright sun’ (From ‘Zenrin Kushu’)

“Amid all the mist of confusion there is still the possibility of a new twilight, not of an evening

but a morning yuga-sandhya.

India of the ages is not dead nor has she spoken her last creative word; she lives and has still something to do for herself and the human people”. (Sri Aurobindo)

The duality of subject & object, of the knower and the known is relative, mutual and inseparable. The object, however, remains as an object for the subject and the subject remains always a subject for the object, though they appear always as phenomenological but the ‘truth’ about them is always noumenological.

The STILL POINT is the UNMOVED MOVER OF DANTE {The still point of the turning world: Primum mobile/The Prime Mover or ‘the first moved’}

“At the still point of the turning world. Neither flesh nor fleshless;
Neither from nor towards; at the still point, there the dance is,
But neither arrest nor movement. And do not call it fixity,
Where past and future are gathered. Neither movement from nor towards,
Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point,
There would be no dance, and there is only the dance.”

– Burnt Norton, Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot

In the great age of this manvantara              

The Dialogue of the Sage and the King on Manvantara in Srimad Bhagavatam

The Dialogue of the Sage and the King on Manvantara in Srimad Bhagavatam

You saw hidden in Her face

What others could not envision or think:

The abysm of the unbodied infinite’

Thou spoke the unspoken words

From the limitless depths of an eternal space

‘A fathomless zero occupied the world’.

Still and quiescent

Every moment

The countless eons followed each other

Like a tedious argument that lost its course in the desert’s wild temptation of mirages 

And the birds come and go

The sky and pool empty as it were

Replicate order in the manifested chaos

Still and quiescent 

Every moment

They break free and fly

And bondage and salvation the same thing

Inside and outside of a coat of arms

And there is in man nothing special

Yet he has 

The indivisible charm of a great cosmic truth

Birth is an allowance

Death too,

M.C. Escher observing a set of Nested Platonic Solids

We are dying into another realm                

And darkness covers the face of the deep

And the Void lifted it from the heap

Blissful in this state of twilight darkness 

Slowly, the soul walked in a halo of silence

And milked the ocean of paradise

Transubstantiating darkness into light

For He will have eyes to give light to the suns 

And the heart feeling the pathos of joy

The anointed music of an unbroken toy

Pealing the root of everlastingness

Nestled in sacred polyhedrons 

Time to be here, or, there

Or, nowhere, but alone in a small boat

Strangely the night your only companion

The tooth of the shark

The glory of the Ark

Hibiscus awaiting on the shore

O! Heraclitean fire of profound grand indifference

Awake yourself to the light of this great day

Sailing away

Or, you stop not to blink at the page of redemption

And burn the effigies of the past forever

And smear the ash in the sky

That soon will be the rainbow 

For you to behold

And you don’t know

What you know

Following the 7 seers of the Oracle of Blind Light

When you have exhausted your thoughts 

Brihadarankya Upanishad Message

Brihadarankya Upanishad Message

Be the wise king who carries the Torch,

Or the fool who lights the candle 

Ending to begin the action of its course

Or, the unending reward of waiting without hope

Always, be sure, calm and resolute

And move without moving

On the still point of the dancing wave!

And do not think of the fruit of action.
Fare forward.
                        O voyagers, O seamen,
You who came to port, and you whose bodies
Will suffer the trial and judgement of the sea,
Or whatever event, this is your real destination.”
So Krishna, as when he admonished Arjuna
On the field of battle.
                                            Not fare well,
But fare forward, voyagers.” (The Dry Salvages, The Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot)
