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

An observer, the Self

The small ego mind (or me) tries with effort

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
