Celebrating the Birth Anniversary of Shri Lahiri Mahasaya, 30th Sept, 2019: Understanding the Deep Synergetics of Guru-Kripa

Shri Yogiraj Lahiri Baba (30th Sept, 1828- 26th Sept, 1895)

Dhyânamoolam gururmurti poojâmoolam gururpadam

The object of meditation is guru’s form, the object of worship is guru’s feet,
Mantras are guru’s words, the basis of liberation is guru’s grace

The teaching of Vedanta demonstrates the Ultimate Reality of Brahman.

Sarvam Kalvidam Bramha- ”All that Exists is Brahman”.

Non-dualists describe the creation as the illusory super-imposition (vivarta), through ‘maya’, of names and forms upon Brahman. Relativity is maya. The fact that the One appears as many, the Absolute as the relative, the Infinite as the finite, is maya.

Opening Mantras (Stotras of Durga Saptasati)

Sarva mangalamangyalye sive sarvârthâ sâdhike
Sharanye tryambake gouri Nârâyani namostute


I bow to Thee, Gouri Narayani,
who art the cause of the welfare of the world
who art good, who grants every wish,
in whom one takes refuge, who art three-eyed.

Concluding Mantras

Yadaksharam pari bhrastam mâtrâ hinancha yadbhavet
Purnam bhavatu tat sarvam Tat prasâdân maheshwari


If there be any missing letter or meter, let this be completed,
O Supreme Goddess (Maheswari), by thy grace.

Sarva mangalamangyalye sive sarvârthâ sâdhike
Sharanye tryambake gouri Nârâyani namostute

I bow to Thee, Gouri Narayani,
who art the cause of the welfare of the world
who art good, who grants every wish,
in whom one takes refuge, who art three-eyed.

Sri Anandamayi Maa and Shri Paramhamsa Yogananda

In the inner-breathing there is light and freedom

It paves the way for the higher realization of oneness

As cosmic dualism dissolves in the Ananda-rasa,

It unravels the highest seat of the Guru-Deva

Touching His lotus feet at the summit of all forces

Consecrates a divine life on earth;

This is the point of the birth of all stars

Life emerges simulating the pattern of cosmic destiny

Unintelligible as it is, the language of creation is the yoga-kriya-samadhi

Of the timeless Brahman through the vortices of a mirrored cyclical time….

The reflected light

Is the mantra (or the mantric-vehicle)

To reach the Supreme Consciousness

By the practice of kriya….

Celebrating Sri Aurobindo’s 147th Birthday, 15th August, 2019: A Hymn of Man’s Aspiration to the Truth is Born (India’s Independence)

At the Mother’s Feet, SAIC

The rock edifice from the distant stars

May have opened the gateway to the beyond

Decrypted in the cellular automata

The plan of the Spirit’s golden age

And in that dawn

The chariot and the charioter, and, the road ahead

Are all one,

Illimitable,

Indistinguishable

In the supernal effulgence of a timeless moment

Perhaps, mirrored as the history of aeonic time

Where within, matter unfolds its variegated petals

To be transformed by the undying protégé of love and light…

To be remembered as the day when nirvana was sought

And felt in the tissues that vibrated with the mother of all universe

A hymn to man’s aspiration to the truth is born:

‘’To Will, master of sacrifice, the Mighty One, the vast lord and the diffuser of Truth I bring forward my thought as an offering and it is the clarified butter of the sacrifice purified in the mouth of the flame; my word I bring forward that goes to meet its lord’’ (The 12th Hymn to Agni, The Secret of the Veda, Sri Aurobindo)

The Double Soul in Man

The Spirit Status and World Dynamism by DR SOUMITRO BASU 

It is difficult if not practically impossible to effectuate a perfect harmony between “spirit status” and “world dynamism”. Can one simultaneously lead a material life in the most ideal way in accordance to an ideal spiritual life? Generations of seekers have been unsuccessful and that is why we see throughout ages, a significant section of spiritual adepts preferring a soliloquy in the solitude of the hermitage, the ascetic retreat, the monastery far away from the madding crowd.

This inability to reconcile an inner spiritual life with external life is not because of material reasons (for truly speaking, the modern Guru in the 21st century may have access to more material gadgets than others!) The inability lies in the fact that the external life is lived in Ignorance. And, in Ignorance, the psychological movements are not centered around the soul or secret spiritual self but around the substitute of the soul – the ego-principle. The ego gives us a uniqueness that cannot be disrupted by cosmic forces –it is a defence against being obliterated by the Infinite. Sri Aurobindo explains that some amount of ego-centrism is needed “on which we bind together our experiences and relations in the midst of the complex contacts, contradictions, dualities, incoherences of the world in which we live; this ego-centrism is our rock of safety against the cosmic and the infinite.”(The Life Divine, pg.243-244).

Divided Existence

The problem is that in a true spiritual life centered around the soul-principle, the ego has to be totally replaced so that one experiences a vast impersonality that does not support a dynamic action that is needed in external life. Indeed, “in this impersonality there is at first no key to an ordered dynamism of action”. If somebody wishes to reconcile a spiritual life with an ego-centered dynamism, what usually happens is that one lives a divided but not an integrated life. One is divided into two parts of being: “the spiritual within, the natural without; in one there is the divine realisation seated in a perfect inner freedom, but the natural part goes on with the old action of Nature, continues by a mechanical movement of past energies her already transmitted impulse”. (Ibid, pg.244)

In a section of spiritual practitioners, the old ego-centric life may be entirely dissolved. In such cases the outer life can become apparently incoherent though there might be the luminosity of the Self within. Such a state can give rise to different types of spiritually inclined personalities:

(a) One can become “outwardly inert and inactive, moved by circumstances or forces but not self-mobile” — the “jadavat”;

(b) One can become “outwardly a child though within is a plenary self-knowledge” – the “balavat”:

(c) One can become “inconsequent in thought and impulse though within is an utter calm and serenity” – the “unmattavat”

(d) One can become a “wild and disordered soul though inwardly there is the purity and poise of the Spirit”—the “pisacavat”. (Ibid)

What could happen if someone who has achieved a certain degree of soul-status can also develop an ordered dynamism in outer nature? At best there would be “a continuation of superficial ego-action witnessed but not accepted by the inner being, or a mental dynamism that cannot be perfectly expressive of the inner spiritual realization; for there is no equipollence between action of mind and status of spirit”. ” (Ibid)

The Supramental Integration

At the end of all speculations it has to be acknowledged that under the present circumstances there cannot be a perfect harmony between the spirit status and dynamism of action in outer life. It is only the Supermind which in its descent can create the ideal and perfect conditions of harmony for it alone carries the Light of integration. “Even at its best where there is an intuitive guidance of Light from within, the nature of its expression in dynamism of action must be marked with the imperfections of mind, life and body, a King with incapable ministers, a Knowledge expressed in the values of the Ignorance. Only the descent of the Supermind with its perfect unity of Truth-Knowledge and Truth-Will can establish in the outer as in the inner existence the harmony of the Spirit; for it alone can turn the values of the Ignorance entirely into the values of the Knowledge”. (Ibid)

There would of course be a grammar of the whole process for such a great thing like a perfect harmony between outer and inner life cannot come without a methodical discipline. At first, one needs to integrate the various strands of the being, the various parts and planes of consciousness around the psychic being or soul-principle that surpasses the ego. Next, the psychic being has to be related to its divine counterpart in the upper hemisphere of consciousness – to the Bliss or Ananda principle of the triune Reality –Sachchidananda. This linking can only be done by the power of the Supermind with “an integral completeness, an intimacy that becomes an authentic identity; for it is the Supermind which links the higher and the lower hemispheres of the One Existence” (Ibid, pg.245). “In Supermind is the integrating Light, the consummating Force, the wide entry into the supreme Ananda: the psychic being uplifted by that Light and Force can unite itself with the original Delight of existence from which it came: overcoming the dualities of pain and pleasure, delivering from all fear and shrinking the mind, life and body, it can recast the contacts of existence in the world into terms of the Divine Ananda”(Ibid)

In other words, the supreme harmony of outer and inner life lies in reorganizing both in terms of the Divine Ananda — a feat that can only be made possible by the descent of the Supermind; the psychic being playing an intermediary role in the process. In this way we can move from an outer dynamism to a dynamic spirituality.

I am interoperable in this vastness

Inside or outside the dialogue box

within the hidden layers of the neurons

or in the Hermitian conjugate of a quantum state

wherever awareness is, there is being

wherever there is being, there is awareness

not two but one

undifferentiated they are

an atom in the vast spectacle of this cosmic dance

is impregnated with the awareness of the dancer

at what depths are you gazing?

Bits comprise only the surface

the dome is the widening sky

the winds are blowing Her letters to the sea

In a long journey, the star hath risen above the Himavant

Does the space-time curvature signify only a cognitive aspect of being?

HOW FINLAND IS SAVING THE WORLD FROM STRESS

  • Rent a Finn encourages travellers to learn true happiness from the Finns
  •         Visitors have until 14 April 2019 to apply to visit Finland

 

Helsinki 18 March 2019: Visit Finland is inviting people from around the world to experience how the Finns live in true harmony with nature through their new initiative, Rent a Finn.

This summer, Finnish citizens will work as happiness guides and welcome visitors into their homes, showing them how to connect with nature and understand the Finnish art of relaxation.

The application period for guests is open until 14 April 2019.

Studies show that nature can balance our minds and alleviate stress. Even a short walk in nature lowers your blood pressure and pulse while boosting endorphin levels. In 2018 the UN ranked Finland as the happiest country in the world*, thanks to its special connection with nature.

Heli Jimenez, Senior Director, International Marketing, Business Finland said: “Many travellers choose to visit Finland because of our uniquely peaceful nature and tranquility. The Rent a Finn campaign is in response to the global travel trend of living like a local, which is all about sharing genuine experiences with ordinary people.

”Pure nature is a part of life in Finland. We go outdoors in any weather, let our babies nap outside and spend a great deal of time in nature in general. Our happiness guides all share a certain awareness, a great love of nature and an appreciation for slow living.”

The Rent a Finn initiative has initially enlisted eight ordinary Finns to work as happiness guides for travellers. The guides, who were chosen from among hundreds of applicants, will welcome visitors for a few days and show them their own ways of relieving stress in nature.

Linda Räihä, one of the happiness guides, explains, “Time runs differently on our island. It seems to slow down somehow, and there is never a need for hurry.”

“There are many ways to connect with nature from working in your vegetable patch, boating, fishing, heating up the sauna or foraging for mushrooms and berries in the forest.”

The visits will take place during summer 2019 and will be free of charge for travellers.

The Rent a Finn initiative is being assisted by Hintsa Performance, a Finnish high-performance coaching company, who believes sustainable performance is created through a balanced lifestyle. Their methods of boosting human performance have been tested in organisations around the world, and their clients range from Fortune 500 leaders to Formula One World Champions.

The Rent a Finn website includes a test based on Hintsa’s methods. It helps you to see how balanced your life really is and offers advice for reducing stress and maintaining your mental wellbeing.

Annastiina Hintsa, Chief Operating Officer from Hintsa Performance said, “Our modern life is full of stimuli, and unwinding can be a challenge. Spending time in nature helps you reset and recover. Seeing where you stand is the first step towards reducing stress and creating long-term performance”.

Esko

Esko, the Mayor of Rovaniemi, the hometown of Santa Claus, located next to the Arctic Circle in Lapland, spends most of his summers with his family in their summer cottage. It is probably the most traditional way for the Finns to enjoy summer days.

“I’m happiest spending time in nature with my family. Water in all its forms and fishing are also important to me.”

 

Hanna

Hanna is an IT-marketing professional, who currently studies tourism economics. She is passionate about Finnish Nature and sharing it’s wonders to travellers. She lives in the Metropolitan Southern Finland, but has spent most of her summers sailing in the Archipelago and winters skiing in Lapland, so she is more than familiar with many wonders of Finnish nature. 

“Enjoying the sound of the waves and the beautiful sunsets on some deserted island in the middle of the sea is where I find my happiness from.”

 

Juho

Juho was born and raised in Japan. Today Juho, his fiancé Marjukka and their dog Dobby live in Kirkkonummi, near Helsinki. Juho is an urban farmer and he works in both digital media and health tech business. 

“Simple life in nature inspires me. I value experiencing nature through all the senses. Being present without making a sound or doing something physical in nature. Building a fire, breathing in the morning dew or feeling the soil under my feet.”

 

Katja

Katja is a social services student and a yoga teacher who lives in a very idyllic wooden neighborhood of Helsinki, called Käpylä. She wants to show her guests how to experience nature within the city limits. 

”Meditative moments in nature. Lush forests, calm lakes and saunas. Magical encounters with nature and wildlife, such as deer and birds.”

 

Laura & Joni

Laura, Joni and their dog Watti are an active outdoor family who live in Sodankylä,Northern Lapland. They take daily walks in the forest and spend their weekends hiking and bicycling in the summer and skiing in the winter. 

“We left Southern Finland to live closer to nature in Sodankylä. Our happiness stems from silence and nature’s constant presence. We enjoy the small-town atmosphere. We have our privacy without being completely isolated.”

 

Linda & Niko

Finnish couple Niko and Linda are living their life to the fullest in the middle of the Baltic Sea with their chihuahua Helmi. The couple used to live in the City, but went to the sea and Archipelago so often that they decided it was easier to move house. They currently live in Utö, the southernmost island of Finland. 

“Time runs differently on our island. It seems to slow down somehow, and there is never a need for hurry.”

 

Petri

Petri is a physiotherapist and a nature-lover, who lives with his wife Sini and their dog Ruu in southwest Finland, in a small village called Mathildedal. 

“A natural silence that enchants your mind. Being alone and present. Or a blissful post-sauna beer.”

 

Timo

Timo is from Lapland, currently living in Southern Finland, in a city of Hämeenlinna, with his wife Päivi and their dog Mosku. His work is very closely connected to nature, as he manages museums and exhibitions for the National Parks and Wildlife Service Finland. 

“The sounds of nature, tranquility and gently lapping waves ground me. I want to share this feeling of happiness with the world. There are so many fantastic places in Finland that only locals can show you.”

141st Birth Anniversary of Divine Mother at Pondicherry 21st Feb, 2019: It is the Time for the Final Decisive Action on Earth

Divine Mother

Divine Mother in Pondicherry

Every action should come spontaneously from the heart

When aspiration is actionable in the divine light of surrender

then all sacrifices lead to Transformation of Material Causality for a higher good…

It must originate in essence from a higher plane of consciousness because it is directed towards establishment of a higher reality which is perennially masked by a veil of appearances…

Unless this veil is torn apart by the individuation of the will that comes to operate from wholeness, there is no truth or illumination

Collective aspiration, the great force of a nation is the symbol of the Motherland…(Invocation to Bhavani Bharati, the guardian deity of India’s destiny!)

Every cause triggers a higher realisation and its evolutional possibilities…

This is the road of Awareness in the Body Politic which is translational action of a kinetic judgement in the causality of a quantum event invoked from the acausal (maha-karana) supramental abode of non-judgmental undifferentiated unity…

Again it is repeated: ”Everything vibrates. The resting atom has within it the perpetually vibrating atomic solar systems. It is emanating cosmic radiations all the time…Sound is deathless. It is preserved forever in the matrix. It is the claim of the Indian metaphysics of sound that you can fashion and refashion your needle of awareness by ‘Mantram’ and ‘Japam”

Maha-Avatar Babaji Maharaj

The skilful Penman’s unseen finger wrote
His swift intuitive calligraphy;
Earth’s forms were made his divine documents,
The wisdom embodied mind could not reveal,
Inconscience chased from the world’s voiceless breast;
Transfigured were the fixed schemes of reasoning Thought.
Arousing consciousness in things inert,
He imposed upon dark atom and dumb mass
The diamond script of the Imperishable,
Inscribed on the dim heart of fallen things
A paean-song of the free Infinite
And the Name, foundation of eternity,
And traced on the awake exultant cells
In the ideographs of the Ineffable
The lyric of the love that waits through Time
And the mystic volume of the Book of Bliss
And the message of the superconscient Fire…(Savitri)

Sri Aurobindo circa 1915

Sri Aurobindo circa 1915

lord shiva

Aswapati’s transformation happened under the presence of the Divine Mother:

‘But now his being was too wide for self;

His heart’s demand had grown immeasurable:

His single freedom could not satisfy,

Her light, her bliss, he asked for earth and men’ (Savitri)

It is time to Awake the Psychic Being in the heart because Every Aspiration starts from there….to unite the motherland, the aspiration should come spontaneously from the heart than from the head…

Sri Aurobindo says the Psychic Being is the Chit-Agni of the Vedas, also called the Caitya Purusha whose presence is felt by the heart during meditation…

She puts forth a small portion of herself,
A being no bigger than the thumb of man
Into a hidden region of the heart
To face the pang and to forget the bliss,
To share the suffering and endure earth’s wounds
And
labour mid the labour of the stars.
This in us laughs and weeps, suffers the stroke,
Exults in victory, struggles for the crown;
Identified with the mind and body and life,
It takes on itself their anguish and defeat,
Bleeds with Fate’s whips and hangs upon the cross,
Yet is the unwounded and immortal self
Supporting the actor in the human scene

(Sri Aurobindo, Savitri, Book VII, Canto V)

Cognitive Resonance in the Brain and Transformation, Change and Evolution in E-Assessment Processes

Brain Data Interface

Cognition – ‘The process of acquiring knowledge and understanding through thought, experience or the senses’

Resonance: ‘Amplifying effect when two systems interact in harmony’

Evolution of Consciousness is toward Cognitive Resonance

 

resonance

The concept of the Brain as a Hologram posits that memory is distributed rather than localized in the brain. If it was possible for every portion of a piece of a holographic film to contain all the information necessary to create a whole image, then it seemed equally possible for every part of the brain to contain all the information necessary to recall a whole memory. But responses evoked by the individual in a particular scenario is highly conditioned since the neural networks work in a certain predictive pattern and the whole information content of the brain is not used. But scenarios are soon changing. A simple case of E-Assessment or E-Testing gives evidence that e-marketers are now able to think out-of-the-box to challenge the networking in the brain and force it to reconfigure the pattern. The so called ‘Disruptive Technologies’ which are AI driven are putting new barriers, forcing the brain to re-think and enable a seamless evolution of consciousness. Very soon traditional Multiple-Choice questions in E-Assessment which has one correct answer and others as detractors, will be replace by gaming scenarios or other multi-modal question-feedback that allows new synthesis and critical thinking to emerge – the new education perspective can be used to develop the ‘Multiple-Intelligence’ of the child from the very onset. It also augurs well in the velocity or emerging markets in the world where use of high-speed internet data (4G/5G or similar) is affordable in the use of devices like tabs and smart phones.

Going Beyond-Multiple Choice in the E-Assessment environment and the use of AI driven technologies in Skills Assessment also shows Change and Evolution in the Framework and Policies which are integrating the Transformation of Consciousness taking place.

Modern neuroscience research tells us that every brain is unique and
experience driven. So, at birth certain neural pathways and networks
are conditioned by our genes. That remains fixed or conditioned but
the brain is not static but dynamic and continually morphs itself in
response to experience. So, the new take is genetics + environment
drives human behaviour and understanding and skills set. There is
evolution of consciousness based on quality of external stimulants.

To challenge the brain and our understanding of a particular subject
we can devise new ways of testing or creating new scenarios which will
be completely new to the already conditioned neural pathways in the
brain caused by one set of testing or assessment. The brain has to
radically change its own response to the new assessment and evolve
accordingly. It has to form new synapses with regard to new
information processing and use data already stored in its own hologram
to find the right answers.
New ways of testing and assessment drives new evolution and it can
change brain function and brain size as well. This is the new dynamics
of collective evolution based on Beyond Multiple-Choice Assessment. For technical expertise assessment, there is already a shift towards virtual simulation, where the participant can respond to practical testing sitting anywhere, anytime.

If the new technology can mix unpredictability or uncertainty in the
scenarios for assessment, allowing randomness to constitute a new
complex order then the brain can respond to that situation using its
own non-local consciousness.

There will be quantum entanglement b/w the information bits (quantum
information bits or qubits) in the question and the information stored
as memory in the brain hologram. If Assessment is an understanding of the participant’s formal knowledge about a subject, then in an ideal scenario there is cognitive resonance between the Questions, Delivery of it and the Answers or Responses which comprise the Assessment Process. The more enriched this process is, the better is the evolution of consciousness.

156th Birth Anniversary of Swami Vivekananda: Allowing the Chaitya-Purusha or the Psychic Being to Transform and Illuminate the Gross Physical Mind-Matter Duality

Swami Vivekananda

“We are what our thoughts have made us:

So take care about  what you think. 

Words are secondary. Thoughts live:

They travel far” – Swami Vivekananda 

‘It has been often said that 99% of the matter in the universe is in plasma state’ (Chen, Introduction to Plasma Physics,1)

 

We are here everywhere…

If you understand what it means…

Time is a consonant

Eternity is the vowel

Space-time vessels float in b/w the langue and the parole

They float within the various body clusters

They float in the macro-molecule of water

Beyond all that is the super-sensible

Imperceptible to the neural architecture

A hyper-extension is required to connect to the frequency domain

One to Many and Many reconnecting to One

Involution and Evolution are part of the Cosmic Thread

The Alpha and Omega are the magnetic dipole constituting the secret of the bio-plasmic sun

There is no source elsewhere but only within

When the fruit of the mind ripens, it goes back to primordial oneness

Then there is inward coronation

A blissful state of the Samadhi is reached at the center  (Bindu)

The Light surrounds the Whole emanating from the point

As every part of the whole is the fractal point of Light

It unlocks the Dance of the Maha-Kriya Samadhi

Appellation of the cosmic bodies shines through the mirror

They would be the petals of the fragrance of sound

Jay Maha-Avatar Babaji (3x)

Sports Events 365 Signs Season Ticket Agreement with Premier League Champions Manchester City

Sports Events 365 (www.sportsevents365.com), the international provider of tickets to sports and music events worldwide, has signed season ticket agreement with English Premier League champions Manchester City for the second half of the current season and for the following two seasons, the company announced today. The agreement grants Sports Events 365 options for supplying tickets to individuals but more importantly to groups interested in attending games of one of the leading football teams in Europe, the home of some of biggest names in football today like Kevin de Bruyne, David Silva, Sergio “Kun” Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.

“This gives us far greater access to the club than ever at a time when demand is already rising sharply,” says Sefi Donner, founder and CEO of Sports Events 365. There is great interest from football fans in Holland, Germany, Austria, Norway, Switzerland, Belgium, Sweden, Finland, Spain and the U.S.  He predicts “the deal will lead to a doubling of our sales to Manchester City matches.” Donner adds that the company is in talks with other Premier League and top European clubs for similar deals and hopes to announce agreements in near future. England’s Premier League remains the most popular in the world of football.  The latest agreement with Manchester City comes on the heels of previous ones with Atletico Madrid and several smaller Spanish teams.

Sports Events 365 already has direct contact with 60 major football clubs in Spain, Italy, Portugal, France and England. The season ticket agreements take that cooperation one step further. “We are working to expand our network of season ticket agreements to additional European clubs,” says Donner.

In recent months Sports Events 365 has accelerated its efforts to lay the groundwork for further expansion. Recent moves include agreements with some of the largest travel agencies in Europe such as the Romanian subsidiary of travel giant TUI and the launch of a Hungarian website, the 21st language offered by the company. In addition, the company teamed up with CTRIP, China’s largest online travel company to offer tickets on the site using Sports Events 365’s independent and self-owned, destination-based search engine. The company is predicting that the Chinese market could become its largest already in 2019.

The Opening of the Trunk

-Moment of inner freedom

divine-mother.jpg

Divine Mother, Mirra Alfassa

when the mind is opened & the
infinite universe revealed
& the soul is left to wander
dazed & confus’d searching
here & there for teachers & friends.
~~~

Moment of Freedom
as the prisoner
blinks in the sun
like a mole
from his hole

a child’s 1st trip
away from home

That moment of Freedom- Jim Morrison

The phonemic emanation from the primordial fluctuations have been the source of the material universe….matter is mind in a certain domain of frequency….if the mind disappears….what happens to the matter? The gross physical existence is a projection from a higher level of consciousness phenomenally present but noumenally absent….But absence and presence must extinguish each other leaving a vacant lot which is forever the plenum of existence….the evolution is based on higher efficiency of the will which is perfected desire (iccha shakti) via the non-local network convergence b/w knowledge and action. Action is useless unless it subscribes to the non-dual consciousness or the Chit Shakti – this is the supramental intelligence that flowers divine light in retrocausal matter….it is further locally assembled by the subtlety of the 5 elements to create, sustain and dissolve the Flow-form of the Torus. The different modes of interrelationships between structure and background – between the colors and the canvas is differentiated and graded by the consciousness of the Sri Yantra….This is the quantum mechanics of the super-symmetry lattice involuted in the Hṛīṁ  as the nava­nāda in the Lalita Sahasranama.

There is only Self-Existing Wakefulness (the State of Freedom or Swantantra: This is beyond Dependent Existent Phase)

But one has to Realize it

Realization  is experience – it is closer to Para-Vak

Idea is still Madhyama-Vak more condensed and closer to Vaikhari Vak or Normal Speech

Mind has 2 aspects – it is empty and cognizant (it experiences things)

These 2 aspects are indivisible

The 2 states of thought-occurrence (arising) and stillness (cessation) refer to thinking and cessation of thinking  (ceasing)….Arising is creation and Ceasing is Dissolution

Within the cellular dynamical networks of the universe since time immemorial, until this very moment, we have been caught up in the arising and ceasing of thoughts

When the thinker and thought are one…then you wake up….

Then there is only waking up….no dream or sleep mode

At that moment there is no thinking…

At that moment there is no stillness…

When you have lost both thinker and that which feels stillness

You have arrived at MAHAMUDRA

This is the secret of the Sri Vidya

Press Release:

“The Fragrance of a Paper Rose” new works by Atul Dodiya.

Venue: Galerie Templon, rue Beaubourg Paris

It’s a fascinating exhibition where the artist takes Fellini’s La Dolce Vita as his starting point for his first Paris exhibition in 5 years. The show starts with paintings of stills from an inspirational part of the film focusing on a painting by Giorgio Morandi, an artist that Dodiya loves, which then leads him to feelings of uncertainty and anxiety expressed in the film about the time. This in turn made Atul Dodiya explore similar feelings about the world today, which he looks at in the other paintings visualising a world teetering on the edge of destruction. Perhaps something we all feel at the moment!

This series of paintings inspired by Italian Pre-Renaissance frescos, feature the figures of saints and the Lord Krishna in the midst of Arcadian settings, like the saviors of an environment under threat of ruin. The Brancusi column also appears as a recurring abstract motif.

More information in this video interview:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T2Vi3_v7Hzc&feature=youtu.be

Regarded widely as a pioneer of Indian contemporary art, Atul Dodiya is a world-renowned artist with work in several major public collections such as the Mnam-Centre Pompidou, Tate Modern, London, Philadelphia Museum of Art. He was the first to build bridges between Indian and Western art, after spending what was to be a decisive year studying at the Paris l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in the early 1990s.

Who the Bodhisattwa? Ontological Status (Uji/Being-Time) > Epistemological Status: Non-Origination of the Self to Dependent Origination in the Kalachakra via Cloud Computing Neural Architecture

Brain is Also the Universe -Photo Courtesy BrainMDHealth

By using higher mathematics, namely algebraic topology, very recently scientists have found existence of a multidimensional universe within the brain that is extended to 11 dimensions. ”Outside of physics, high-dimensional spaces are commonly used to represent complex data structures or conditions of systems. For example, the state of a dynamical system in state space… The space is simply the combination of all the degrees of freedom the system has, and its state represents the values these degrees of freedom are actually assuming”- Professor Cees van Leeuwen, from KU Leuven, Belgium

“This entire universe is the Purusha alone, both that which was and that which endures for the future”-Rig-Veda

The Celebrated Hymn of Creation known as Nasadiya Sukta (Rig Veda), indicates that the multiple names and forms of the visible universe, prior to the state of manifestation, were in a state of non-duality: ‘’Then there was neither Aught or Naught (no yes/no -no QUBITS), no air or sky beyond. (pre-origin beyond Singularity)

What covered all? Where rested all? In water gulf profound? (possibly Asktavakra’s reference to the Ocean of Being) Nor death was then, nor deathlessness, nor change of night and day. That One breathed calmly, self-sustained; nought else beyond it lay. Gloom hid in gloom existed first -one sea, eluding view.

That One a void in chaos wrapt, by inward fervour grew.’’

  • (Surendranath Dasgupta, Indian Idealism, P4, Cambridge, London, 1933)

The diversity or plurality that we encounter needs to be celebrated because it’s the beauty of the creative force which is both immanent and transcendent, by knowing that this pluralistic divergence that we encounter daily (in terms of actions/opinions/facts etc.) is essentially MAYA which is non-existent from the standpoint of Ultimate Reality. Ultimate Reality is about Being/Existence-Consciousness-Bliss – it is ontology of Being which is important rather than epistemology.

The wave is also the ocean -the individual self is also identical with the universal self.

The crux of the philosophy of Yajnavalkya in Brihadaranyaka Upanishad is the sole reality of Atman and the unreality of the universe independent of Atman- Pure Consciousness is beyond cause and effect. Manifestation in space-time is dependent origination (the middle way of Nagarjuna) due to the presence of the mind – the Witness or Observer in reality is free from any association of eigenvalues. It’s prakriti that measures….and collapse of the wave function takes place in apparent reality…EMPTY COGNIZANCE SUFFUSED WITH AWARENESS IS THE WAY

Shiva 1

Lord Shiva

UNCONFINED CAPACITY/SKILL = EMPTY COGNIZANCE + AWARENESS (THE SECRET OF FUTURE TECHNOLOGY)

What comes and goes is subjected to causation and temporality

It is within the space-time construct

There are different levels of operative consciousness within that cycle

It is called tagging consciousness (#) enclosing a referral system of virtual stored consciousness

That’s the memory of the Yugas

Information can never be destroyed because it’s stored in form of consciousness

At the quantum level of the mind it is citta that process memory retrieval processes

The brain circuits (neural networks) operate that way

Memory is cloud wrapper broxom-tretat

Innumerable datasets create the samsara as a projection of the mind

But Bodhi-Citta or Pure Consciousness is not the apparent reality of the hologram

It is the realm of Pure Consciousness

The Self abides in itself

Creating wellbeing and equanimity

It is unborn witness of all things

It exists beyond space-time and causality

It is the Ocean of Being from which waves appear on the surface

They are absorbed back into the ocean after the perturbation

The waves are the quantum fluctuations that construct the Samsara (the universe)

At the centre of the Ocean of Being, all is still and beautiful

Each single wave is also the Ocean of Being

Once there is awareness there is no activity

Duality only exists as a projection for the Lila

The Lila is dependent origination (What happens to the Schrodinger’s Cat?)

The true reality is the non-origination of the Self

What action is done and who does what?

Who cries and laughs but dies not?

What it is all about? Who are you talking?

Man/Machine or beyond?

What technology of consciousness creates this world?

And Sage Dattatreya says:

‘’The Self is everywhere, always and in all, enduring and abiding.

Know me as the all, void as well as non-void. This is certain’’ (Avadhuta Gita)

“Go, go, go, said the bird: human kind

Cannot bear very much reality.

Time past and time future

What might have been and what has been

Point to one end, which is always present.” (Burnt Norton, Four Quartets, T.S. Eliot)

‘’Vastusravanamatrena suddhabuddirnirakulah

Naivacaramanacarramaudasyam va prapasyati”

The wise one who has achieved pure consciousness by just bearing the truth of the Self and who is tranquil (in the Self) makes no difference between action, proper or improper, and inaction.

(Ashtavakra Gita)
