The Opening of the Trunk

-Moment of inner freedom

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)

The Peace Mantra from Ishavasya Upanishad:

Lord Ganesha

OM Purnamadah purnamidam purnat purnamudachyate

Purnasya purnamaadaya purnamevavashishyate

Shantih! Shantih! Shantih!

”That is complete, this is complete.

From that completeness comes this completeness.

If we take away this completeness from that completeness…

Only completeness remains”.

”When the Peace is established, this higher or Divine Force from above can descend and work in us. It descends usually first into the head and liberates the inner mind centres, then into the heart centre . . . then into the navel and other vital centres . . . then into the
sacral region and below. . . . It works at the same time for perfection as well as liberation; it takes up the whole nature part by part and deals with it, rejecting what has to be rejected, sublimating what has to be sublimated, creating what has to be created. It integrates, harmonizes, establishes a new rhythm in the nature.”

– Sri Aurobindo or The Adventure of Consciousness by Satprem

 

 

 

In that deep ocean of existence

You don’t need to merge with anything thing at all

Because you are that which is existence itself

You are that which is consciousness and bliss

When there is supreme ecstasy

The sun, the stars,

And the brilliant moons have emerged from your navel

You may not fade into oblivion but remember that all

Emerging from the centre you radiate in all directions

Your music has become space and time

You have not withered like the stone or the tree

But have flowered through the eons

Cycle after cycles

No dust ever settled or scratched the bosom of your heart

Forever young and pure

The symphony of your mind has dost touched the matter of forms

You are not seen but you are the witness of all

The Seer is the All-Perceiving Eye of the manifested world

You are who you are in all that glorious effulgence

No name is subscribed no form is allotted

You who art Thou have played the endless tunes of existence alone

May I pray to you this very moment

Through the verse or a song

Reclining above in the summit of all forces

In the infinite riches of the Supreme Light

The Crown of the King is the primordial mind

Where nothing stirs or quivers

Only a blank stillness of a supreme poise

Anoints the feet that trod the earth in all golden ways….

Dark clouds adumbrate

Celestial pooling on earth

Her face hidden by dry grass and stone

Is the dead skin of a Snake…

They will rise in their majestic motion

Because the free particle of time is music

The Adi Nagas are the guardian spirits

They have protected the ancient Gnostic technology of consciousness

When the heart circumambulates the great mountain

Then kala will illuminate the serpent’s of power

Through varying non-local key signalling process

That cannot be decoded from the holographic spheres

”His only purpose for remaining in his body is to impart his knowledge to others”-Shiva Sutas

”The joy of his Samadhi is bliss for the whole universe”- Shiva Sutras

 

Nagas in Buddhist Painting

 

The rhythm that captures the soul

Is the essence of universal frequency

When flowers bloom and stars die

The silent ripple intoxicates the dance

It becomes spontaneous like a geyser

Touching the timeless continuum of existence

Forever and ever;

The blank face becoming the eye

Witnesses the event

Action less withdrawing to a point

The tongue red as the membrane of the sun

Thirsty like the receding shores of a song

That has never touched the ocean’s milky way

Is awaiting the chariots of dawn

Enfolded in geraniums and dewy tea rose

To become the undying music the calliopes play

In the void the lutes of fire string no more…

Shiva in perpetual movement mirrors the creation from the still point

The axis of the creation is Mt. Kailash

It is the yogic pyramid of synergetic micro-state forces

Issuing frequencies that lends matter its form and shape

Through the vortex in the plasma centre, interstellar journeys are possible

Can the Spirit gyrate around the axis (Mt. Kalilash)?

That is the Dance of Shiva

Kailash

Mt Kailash/Yungdrung Gutsek/Gang Ti-Se (Precious Snow Mountain)

A loop must unfold via the womb of the Celestial Mother,

The grace bound ever perfected state of Samadhi that is forever unexcelled

‘’I” in the objective world is a phenomenal case of mind/matter dualism

“I” in the subjective world is a noumenal case of non-dualism

When these two interchangeable states are uniformly poised,

There is transcendental bliss of enlightenment

There is an adorable mantra that recites on its own

It fills the super-voids with the plenum of existence perpetuating space-time geometries

That is the anadi-adi yoga mudra of the primordial adinkras

Folded light-matter super-symmetrical qubits

Chanting Om Namah Shivaya….

In the yoni of the cosmic receptacle

Reading Beneath the ‘Faces’: Serge Anton’s Photography and the Non-Local Discreetness of Each Moments

Tonpa Shenrab Miwo Bon Monastery Nepal

Tonpa Shenrab Miwo, Triten Norbutse (Bon) Monastery, Nepal, photograph by Joy Roy Choudhury

Sometimes I do wonder what makes a photograph so fascinating. Is it the observed or the capture, or, the technology used to observe the observed, or, something hidden beneath the observed that it brings out, some recurrent pattern or archetype that gives the photograph something to stand out from the clutter of objects in our every day life. Does the photograph throw any light on the mind of the photographer? Does it tell anything about his level of perception, as he is the one who is choosing the subject of his photography? Adding another perspective to it, does the photograph hold a key or passport to eternity? Lets look into it. If the photograph captures a moment or say a decisive moment, then we are talking about a precise fragment of space-time which is discreet or can be called a quanta. Instead of thinking about the linearity of time because our neural networking is conditioned that way, we can think about discontinuous moments and there are infinitesimal gaps in between these moments. At the subquantum level, these are interference patterns of wave fronts which are captured in the photograph. Through the photograph is a presence because our brains are Fourier analyzing the wave forms, they are  in fact frequencies which have their origin not at the manifested level of reality but at the implicate level which is the quantum potential. Out of that quantum potential, the photographer is able to manifest one aspect of it in a kind of coordinated movement (also called Holomovement by David Bohm). What does it then tell about the photograph? Though the photograph is a local thing-event, but, what is fundamental is the deeper reality behind it, not, time but the timeless that it represents. That is possible because the photographer is a witness or observer- he is not adding anything to reality. He just capturing “things as they are”. And these discreet ”thing-events” (ji) are like mirrors reflecting each other ad infinitum creating an orchestrated dance like billions of jewels in a necklace each reflecting each other and thereby creating an entire ensemble through mutual interpenetration. Each jewel or dew drop reflects the whole (though of lower resolution) and is a passport to the timeless and the eternal.

The Face Is The Mirror Of The Soul – Serge Anton

image001

I would like all of you to have a look at Serge’s work, these faces capture the timeless frozen in time. The observer’s consciousness have archived those beautiful moments that capture the essence of existence and bliss. This is what reality is all about – at both levels, the manifested biological level of physical forms, and, at a deeper fundamental level of subquantum reality, the level of the formless or the unmanifest which is more fundamental.  It is the TAO or the Brahman Or the Void which manifests our individuality out of love and compassion (karuna), and if you use the great wisdom or ”maha-prajna” then everything goes back into the timeless as possibilities in consciousness, into the formless undifferentiated, unborn Self which you verily are -”Tat Tvam Asi” (That Thou Art). Here, the photographer is the SEER, the witness, all-pervasive, perfect, non-dual, free, intelligent, action-less, desire-less, unattached and serene – that is the true nature of the Self. The moment photographed is the beautiful tapestry of wordless silence, each face having its own narrative which reflects all other narratives – faces reflecting each other and resembling the whole, the ensemble in a synergistic dance that comes from “the empty theater and empty circus and empty universe
ready to accommodate any act and any audience”. (Buckminster Fuller on Vector Equilibrium)

So, you can take a look at Serge Anton’s work from his book Faces by Lannoo Publishers and enjoy every discreet moment.

FACES from Lannoo Publishers is an exquisitely designed book of beautiful portraits taken by internationally renowned photographer, Serge Anton. Each portrait has been photographed on Anton’s countless travels in Africa and Asia over the last 30 years.

Each portrait tells wordless stories, as they reveal a certain resemblance in the exotic faces of faraway cultures- details in their eyes and wrinkles that seem to reflect the wisdom of lifetimes. There is no text to explain each portrait as Anton wants readers to be intrigued by the portrait no matter where, how or when it was taken.

bohr and heisenberg and pauli copenhagen.jpg

Bohr, Heisenberg and Pauli: The Copenhagen Interpretation 

“The Self is not in any object, nor is any object in the Self which is infinite and signless. Hence I am free from attachment and desire. Serene in this (knowledge) alone I abide

Natma bhavesu no bhavastatranate niranjane

Ityasakto sprhah santa etadevahamasthitah”

-Ashtavakra Gita

Anatomizing the Self, the Witness or the Observer

Through the cloud consciousness of the primordial mind

Hui-neng’s no mind of the samadhi state is beyond space-time construct

Wu-hsin and Wu-nien are the neural correlates of wu-wei or non-doing in Gita

However, there are computations, consciousness is beyond comprehensibility

 

Flowers Near Tashiding

Flowers Near Tashiding Monastery, Sikkim 

The silent flower

With all its variegated beauty is the unborn in the unborn

That is the expression of transcendental bliss

It abides in itself beyond the duality of relativism

Therefore we contend to non-origination and the primordial singleness of the self (ajativada)

Brahman is Brahman

It is unborn and all-pervading

It confers supreme peace and tranquility

Sivam Santam

With manifestation (only apparent), comes Dependent Origination or Relativistic Existence

There is doer or the ego – there is duality and opacity and obdurateness

In the luminosity of the Self – there is transparent interpenetration

Ashtavakra talks about non-origination of the Self

It does not spring from anything!

Yajnavalkya in Brihadarankya Upanishad says:

“When born, he is not born again;

who indeed can generate him?”

he is always unborn (aja) and non-dual (advaya)

The self is all that exists (sarvam atma) – knowing this be happy!

This is same as Vasudevah sarvam of Bhagavadgita (vii, 19)

Japanese Buddhist Monastery, Kolkata 

When the Zen Master asks questions like

Who Am I? Where Am I? Whence Do I Come?

Whither DO I Go? – an inquiry into the Self-Nature (Svabhava) of Reality

The questions are pointed in such way so that it corresponds to self-abidance

which is indeed the meaning of WELLBEING OR SWASTHYA or TRUE HAPPINESS

Where do the Bodhisattvas reside? Where is the Self abiding?

In the Eternal Now which is the present moment, quiescent and illuminating

The Self abides in its own abode continuously radiating maha-karuna from the center

The past and the future signals have interpenetrated each other (from their respective de-sitter event horizons ) and have become the present moment which too keeps on changing

In this eternal present the Buddha or the Awakened One has fixed his abode which is no abode (the mind has no abode)

20160708_134042

Flowing Mountain Stream, Yuksom, Sikkim 

This is the universe of luminosity where space time is obliterated

 

This scene of complete transcendental interpenetration is called

The Entering into the Dharmadhatu (dharmadhatu pravesa)

How did you get in?

Through the Gates of Copenhagen by the bliss of the Witness!

Leaving behind nothing – I jump into the ocean of existence.

Divine Mother Symbol

”Light” 

From the quickened womb of the primal gloom,

Flowers that Invoke the Creative Life-Force

Flowers that Invoke the Creative Life-Force

The sun rolled, black and bare,

Till I wove him a vest for his Ethiop breast,

Of the threads of my golden hair;

And when the broad tent of the firmament

Arose on its airy spars,

I pencilled the hue of its matchless blue,

And spangled it around with stars.

I painted the flowers of the Eden bowers,

White Jasmine in Bloom

”Leaves of Living Green” – Sri Aurobindo 

And their leaves of living green,

And mine were the dyes in the sinless eyes

Of Eden’s Virgin queen;

And when the fiend’s art in the truthful heart

Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form or Nirvana is Samsara or Samsara is Nirvana- Highest Doctrine

Form is Emptiness, Emptiness is Form or Nirvana is Samsara or Samsara is Nirvana- Highest Doctrine

Had fastened its mortal spell,

In the silvery sphere of the first-born tear

To the trembling earth I fell.

When the waves that burst o’er a world accurst

Their work of wrath had sped,

And the Ark’s lone few, tried and true,

Came forth among the dead.

With the wondrous gleams of the bridal beams,

I bade their terrors cease,

As I wrote on the roll of the storm’s dark scroll

God’s covenant of peace.

Like a pall at rest on the senseless breast,

Night’s funeral shadow slept—

Where shepherd swains on Bethlehem’s plains,

Their lonely vigils kept,

When I flashed on their sight, the heralds bright,

Of Heaven’s redeeming plan,

As they chanted the morn, the Saviour born—

Joy, joy, to the outcast man!

Equal favour I show to the lofty and low,

On the just and the unjust I descend:

E’en the blind, whose vain spheres, roll in
darkness and tears,

Feel my smile—the blest smile of a friend.

Nay, the flower of the waste by my love is embraced,

As the rose in the garden of kings:

At the chrysalis bier of the morn I appear,

And lo! the gay butterfly wings.

The desolate morn, like the mourner forlorn,

Conceals all the pride of her charms,

Till I bid the bright hours, chase the night from
her flowers,

And lead the young day to her arms.

And when the gay rover seeks Eve for her lover,

And sinks to her balmy repose,

I wrap the soft rest by the zephyr-fanned west,

In curtains of amber and rose.

Child with Flowers by French Painter Bouguereau

Child with Flowers by French Painter Bouguereau

From my sentinel steep by the night-brooded deep

I gaze with the unslumbering eye,

When the cynosure star of the mariner

Is blotted out from the sky:

And guided by me through the merciless sea,

Though sped by the hurricane’s wings,

His companionless, dark, lone, weltering bark,

To the haven home safely he brings.

I waken the flowers in the dew-spangled bowers,

The birds in their chambers of green,

And mountain and plain glow with beauty again,

As they bask in their matinal sheen.

O, if such the glad worth of my presence on earth,

Though fitful and fleeting the while,

What glories must rest on the home of the blessed,

Ever bright with the Deity’s smile.

– Sri Aurobindo, 1st poem at the age of 10, written in Manchester, UK (appeared in Fox’s Weekly 11th Jan, 1883)

This is the pure consciousness of the witnessing self best experienced when the mind is young and fresh and most importantly is de-conditioned. The state of Blakean ”innocence” is also a state void of action, pure and self-luminous. The child is closest to nature since he/she is born out of nature and the growth process is natural and organic. The child sees ‘things as they are’ not coloured by opinions and complexity of the thought processes and, therefore, much closer to the divinity shining inside. This is also the state of primordial awakening not by any effort but by the grace of the Self:  ”I waken the flowers in the dew-spangled bowers,
The birds in their chambers of green,…” this is closest to a satori experience in Zen. Here, if you read with awareness, you will find a circularity in the composition which starts from a central point in the petal (which is T.S. Eliot’s ‘the still point of the turning world’ in the Four Quartets/here the ‘quickened womb’) and moves along cyclically to the outermost petal creating arrangements through the psycho-kinesthetic process of creative mind exploring the experience of childhood innocence and beauty. Mind is like mirror reflecting anything that falls before it but doesn’t retain any form or shape itself. This which is our very nature is the ”buddha nature” already pure and unstained by any causality. As Ashtavakra said: the bondage is this that you practice samadhi.

Lao Tzu has said often that the natural order is an indefinable order. Man is already organic to the whole system in the universe. The separation of man and nature is because of the thinking process and is only an apparent reality. And the seer-poet of Tao and Zen sings: ”picking chrysanthemums on the eastern fence/gazing in silence of the southern hills/the birds fly home to the soft mountain air of dusk…

So, the fundamental teaching is the art of suspending thought and react spontaneously like the universe (like the child, or, like the flowers, bees and birds). For the artist or the sculptor, it comes down to one single brush stroke or action where there is unity and no differentiation between the body and mind (and its thoughts). This is also mindfulness or moment to moment non-judgemental awareness. In the spontaneity of rhythm the differentiation is severed and the dancer and the dance become one.

“O chestnut-tree, great-rooted blossomer,/ Are you the leaf, the blossom or the bole?/ O body swayed to music, O brightening glance,/ How can we know the dancer from the dance?” (”Among School Children, W.B. Yeats)

The dancer and the dance cannot be separated; while playing the musical instrument at the zenith of creativity the musician and the instrument (sitar or violin) are one. This unity of consciousness is our very nature, our primordial being our own nirvana.

Every sentient being, speaking as I, may say to his phenomenal self, ‘Be Still! and know that I am God!’

”All human evil comes from this: man’s being unable to sit still in a room”

-Blaise Pascal (1623-1662)

At the still point

doing and non-doing are meaningless

they have cancelled out

so, are the differentials of inside and outside

open or close, dissipative or non-dissipative structures have faded into oblivion

What happens to the dream state after awakening?

there was no dream, neither, was there any buddha or awakening

the self in its transcendental glory is the shining sun that is…

it manifests for its multiplicity the solar grid to engineer feeling-centric learning processes

actually, there is no becoming or evolution outside the dream

there is am-ness and pure subjectivity

”Infinite is, indeed, my wealth of which nothing is mine.

If Mithila is burnt, nothing that is mine is burnt” (Janaka, Santiparva, Mahabharata)

The true Self is infinite as taught by Astavakra and Yajnavalkya to King Janaka

“The entire universe is the Self”

“In the Ocean of existence the one (the pure Self) only was, is and will be.

There is neither bondage nor salvation for you. Fulfill yourself and move about happily.

And in the Shiva Sutras you learn that when knowledge is destroyed, the dream is seen.

they all correspond to a clear pattern recognition which is recollection of the Self luminosity where dream or appearance is burnt.

But nothing is burnt or dissolved in the true sense,

There never was a Bodhi Tree

Nor any character other than the Self

When there is only the witness or the observer

what is  the meaning of liberation or freedom?

”As I have known the Supreme Self who is the eternal Person as the Witness

and who is the Lord, I have no desire for bondage and liberation, nor care for salvation.”

PRESS RELEASE

2018-063-EN

9th March, 2018

 

Record EUR 1 billion European Investment Bank support for global solar investment confirmed ahead of International Solar Alliance summit

  • Largest ever backing for solar investment by world’s largest international public bank
  • India leading country for EIB solar investment
  • Strengthened engagement for solar energy in developing and emerging economies expected

In 2017 the European Investment Bank provided EUR 1.05 billion of new financing for solar energy projects around the world, representing the largest ever annual support by the EIB to the solar sector.

Ahead of the Founding Conference of the International Solar Alliance in New Delhi the European Investment Bank also confirmed strengthened engagement to support significant expansion of solar energy in developing and emerging economies.

“Solar power is providing clean energy for millions of people around the world and solar energy now represents the single largest source of new power generation. The fate of this planet depends on continuing to expand the use of renewable energy to support sustainable economic growth. This can be achieved through improved access to energy alongside scaling up a viable alternative to fossil fuels. The European Investment Bank – the EU bank – welcomes the vision of the International Solar Alliance to ensure those countries most vulnerable to climate change can harness the proven potential of solar power,” said Werner Hoyer, President of the European Investment Bank.

India leading focus of EIB backed solar investment outside Europe

India was the leading recipient of EIB financing for solar investment outside the European Union, both in 2017 and overall since 2013. The EIB has approved a total of EUR 640 million of new investment in solar projects in India set to provide clean energy to an estimated 4.2 million households and save more than 4 million tons of carbon emissions.

“The European Union and India are committed to implementing the Paris Climate agreement and working together to achieve Sustainable Development Goals, including ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. As the European Union’s bank, the EIB has a strong track record of supporting transformational investment in India and working with Indian partners to enhance solar investment across this country to benefit millions of Indian households.” said H.E. Mr. Tomasz Kozlowski, Ambassador of the European Union.

President Werner Hoyer will lead a high-level European Investment Bank Delegation to attend the International Solar Alliance summit, taking place in New Delhi this week. During the visit the EIB will confirm significant new support for EUR 500 million of new renewable energy investment across India in partnership with the Indian Renewable Energy Development Agency (IREDA).

Strengthened EIB financing for solar investment in developing and emerging economies

The European Investment Bank is committed to increasing support for climate related investment, including renewable energy, in developing and emerging economies to represent 35% of overall financing activity.

“More than a trillion dollars of new solar investment will be required by 2030 to deploy affordable solar energy. The European Investment Bank has a unique technical and financing experience of supporting solar projects around the world, enabling new research to further reduce deployment costs and mobilising renewable energy investment. The International Solar Alliance looks forward to welcoming President Hoyer and his colleagues to New Delhi to discuss strengthened cooperation in the years ahead.” said H.E. Upendra Tripathy, Interim Director General of the International Solar Alliance.

During the International Solar Alliance summit the EIB will outline the key role of solar energy investment across a range of technologies to reduce carbon emissions and increase access to clean energy.

Global support for solar investment to address local energy priorities

New EIB financing for solar investment in 2017 included backing for new projects in India, Mexico and Peru, as well as 13 European Union countries.

Since 2002 the EIB has financed more than EUR 6.35 billion of new solar energy investment and 50% of solar investment financed by the EIB in the last 7 years is located in developing and emerging economies. Reflecting the global solar engagement in recent years the EIB has financed photovoltaic and concentrated solar power projects across Africa in Morocco, South Africa and Burkina Faso, in Latin America in Nicaragua and Peru, in Asia in India and Vietnam as well as Turkey and Israel.

This has enabled significant expansion of access to energy using clean power production and contributed to improved economic activity and social benefits. In the coming weeks the EIB is expected to confirm significant financing for off-grid solar projects across Africa.

Background information:

The European Investment Bank (EIB) is the long-term lending institution of the European Union owned by its Member States. It makes long-term finance available for sound investment in order to contribute towards EU policy goals.

Divine Mother’s Blessings Encoded on the Path to ”Total Surrender”: Deep Learning and the Praxis of Going Beyond Mind 

Om Maa

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

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
