“BRAHMAN IS IN THE SPACE WITHIN THE HEART” (NIHITAM GUHAYAM)

When Nirvana is made an object of desire, it becomes Samsara.

Real Nirvana cannot be desired because it is inconceivable.

“In him shadows his form the Golden Child

Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry circa 1917

Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry, 1917

Who in the Sun-capped Vast cradles his birth:

Hiranyagarbha, author of thoughts and dreams,

Who sees the invisible and hears the sounds

That never visited a mortal ear,

Discoverer of unthought realities

Truth to truth than all we have ever known,

He is the leader on the inner roads:

A seer, he has entered the forbidden realms;

Armed with the golden speech, the diamond eye,

His is the vision and the prophecy:

Kalida Meditating

Kalida Meditating

……..

He is the carrier of the hidden fire,                     Bhagavan Dattatreya

 

……….

The conqueror of the kingdoms of the soul…”

-Savitri Book XI: The Book of the Everlasting Day, The Soul’s Choice and the Supreme

Consummation -Sri Aurobindo

True Dhyana is to realize that one’s own nature is like space, and

the thoughts and sensations come and go in this ‘original mind’

like birds through the sky, leaving no trace.

The ever unfinished work of art

Issued from the primordial mind essence

Empty in the beginning and the end

Forever striving for a perfected form

Is pure in the naked space of awareness (rigpa)

Toying with the timeless dimensions of a mise-en-scène

Sculpting out of the fabric of a stone that cannot breathe

Evanescent thoughts vaporized like ether     Shri Shiva in Om offset lithograph, c. 1930

Into the palette of the wonderful void

Colours resonating with melody of sound

Never arising, dwelling or ceasing

But creating textures that the eye can only dream

Between sleep and waking

Flowering thousand petal lotus

Where a child is born

And begins to see

When the world comes to a naught

A moment seized in the clear light

To Immortalize the dancing rapture of the Master King… Jim Morrison 1

“Having abandoned attachment to the fruit of works, ever content,

Without any kind of dependence he does nothing though he is

Ever engaged in work”.  (Sri Krishna in Bhagavadgita)
