“THE POWER OF CREATION IS THE EXPERIENCE OF EVERY INDIVIDUAL” – Neuronal Re-Wiring by Released Representation Through Experience

 

Kali as Adi Mahavidya

Maha kali as adi maha vidya

At the depths of colossal darkness

Where time and space are naught

Where universes have come to a hollering point after a prolonged somnambulist swirl

The self lone exists there as a prayer

That will recodify the matrix of the of new cycle of evolution

“The swan looks into the waters and the waters look into the swan”.

“The humming bird looks at the flower and the flower looks at the humming bird”.

All that is destined

Like the melodies out of a flute and lyre

The sun emblazoned on a new curvature

The moon’s Heraclitian fire beneath the oceans surge the anima mundi of this earth

Language purified from the whole heart and mind resuscitates the heart sutra

Meditating on this, neuronal re-wiring takes place

RESTORING SAMATA AT ALL LEVELS OF EXISTENCE

In Search of the Double-Negative: Meditation as the Seed and Means for Thoughtless-Consciousness

3 Advices of Lord Atisha: “Place before you the vajra of no dissuasion”

“Place before you the vajra of no shame”

“Place before you the vajra of pure wisdom”.

 

                                                                      Varanasi 2015

 

A spontaneous way of understanding rises when you are on your own searching for the inner peace in the supra-plastic womb of your internal creation. Total creation is continued in  a dot which is the singularity point also known as the immaculate background. Blissful co-existence is an internal state of the primordial mind immersed in ‘rigpa’ or non-dual awareness. Once actions proceed from this sphere of illuminated singularity with complete awareness , then peace can be stabilized on its own following the Way or the Tao or the Brahman. Creation and dissolution or life and death are part of this uni-dimensional matrix that is the way of projection by the act of separation through identification. The unique identity is the double-negative: the absence of the absence of presence and absence, is non-volitional living or true living only known to higher-dimensional beings or Sapta-Rishis and the highest yogic seers and sages. To invoke the supramental one has to go beyond the logic input of the brain and change the neural pathways completely. Then only those connections with that power is possible. More than Nietzschean power, it has to do with the consciousness or awareness of the Self as the dancer, automatic reverberation of the heavenly bodies taking place inside the micro-orbit of the body-mind complex as mantric frequency of highest order. Meditation is the seed and when the seed bursts you reach the state of ‘twice-born’. Eternal knowledge leads to cessation of birth and death.

You walk bare feet on grass

Your feet caressed by the morning dew

And the gentle wind bathing you in delight

You wonder at the marvels

The Saviour grace working through humanity

One day you too will wake up from this dream

To find your Self

And wonder gazing at the faraway stars

They have burned within from eternity.

‘Para-Vak’ as the Fundamental Causal Stress for the Creation: Where ‘the Music Never Stopped’

YungDrung Kundrakling Bon Monastery South Sikkim picture by Joy Roy Choudhury

 

“Once in a while you can get shown the light, in the strangest of places, if you look at it right.” – Robert Hunter

(Scarlet Begonia, Grateful Dead)

Hari Purush Prabhu Jagatbandhu Sundar

It is said that the exact position of the Original Cavity of the Spirit is in the centre of the brain behind at the spot between the eyes. Frequently known as the Gateway to the Heaven and Earth, Taoist masters like Lao Tzu urged practitioners to concentrate on the centre to realize the Oneness of all things. In this centre is a pearl of the size of a grain of rice, which is the centre between the heaven and earth in the human body (i.e. the microcosm); it is the cavity of prenatal vitality.

One who knows this cavity can prepare the elixir of immortality and hence it is said: ‘When One is attained, all problems are solved’. This is the great realization of the Brahman or the Tao or Nirvana.

Tibetan Buddhist Wall Painting, South Sikkim

Without proper usage of the given spiritual apparatus which is the transformation of the body and mind, there will no significant development on earth. Technology cannot make the world safer or better unless spiritual development takes place in tandem with it. Today, there’s lot of talk about use of technology for social causes (employment, education, healthcare) which is very encouraging, but, the real fundamental change needs to happen through sustained effort for a spiritual development. This we must understand, the sooner the better.

In Vedas, it is said that the Nada Brahman pervades all, it exceeds all by the measure of ‘ten fingers’. So, this is beyond computation. At least, at the present 3d level of space-time, it is impossible to even speculate about the creational matrix.

Prudence and Balance

‘Prudence: very useful for weakness because weakness needs prudence; strength does not need it’. (Divine Mother, Mirra Alfassa)

‘Equanimity: immutable peace and calm’. (Divine Mother, Mirra Alfassa)

“As long as our brain is a mystery, the universe- the reflection of the structure of the brain-will also be a mystery”.

– Santiago Ramon y Cajal (1852-1934)

Maitreyi said to sage Yajnavalkya ages ago in reply to his offer of a worldly boon- “What shall I do with that which does not confer on me the blessedness of immortality?”

Sruti says that the truth about Atman or Self cannot be known by sravana (Sense Evidence) and manana (Inference) only; we must go into niddhyasana (Meditation of Yoga) to have direct realization of Truth.

“There’s a band out on the highway             
They’re high-stepping into town
It’s a rainbow full of sound
It’s fireworks, calliopes and clowns
Everybody’s dancing

Come on children, come on children
Come on clap your hands….

(The Music Never Stopped, Grateful Dead)

‘Tasmin Vijnate Sarvam Idam Vijnatam Bhavati’. (Mundaka Upanishad 1.3)

“The Devotee of the Lord Knows Everything Material and Spiritual in Relationship with the Lord”.

“Para-Sabda” as the Causal Stress is the root of everything in the creation. But even prior to this root there is this soil or matrix which in Indian terminology is known as ‘a-para-sabda’. This is beyond the stage when phenomenon start (noumenal), it is the stage of soundless-ness, the unmanifest Whole, the source and the reservoir from which all expressions, manifestations, experiences, the universes and the worlds.

Bondage is the impermanent nature of the universe

Only the everlasting soul dwells in non-duality

Being free and beyond the causation of space-time it appears as everything

It disappears into the golden womb of nothing

Still shining in the void of voids

It is the supreme unity of all operational matrices

The essence or nature from which creation assumes its destiny

A preset asymmetry is then released into the finite

Into the ocean of multitudes branching out the karmic propensities

A single flow of supreme divinity connects them all

Pulsating all timelines of the cycles of yugas

A manifested ocean of space consumes them all *Prajnana Bramha/’Idam Mahadbhutam Anantam Aparam bijnana ghana eba’ (Brihadarankya Upanishad)

A differentiated order of chaos is the original destiny of the unifying godhead

Sacred evolution is the sustaining metaphor of every life in the universe

As the chariot moves creating its own rhythm of dance

A spectacle beholds the passing scenes

From the Hiranyagarbha , it was before the rising sun awake from its slumbering sleep

Deep beneath it was only a radiance of love that overflowed

That connected with itself through all sentient beings

And the wheels of Jagannatha neither dry or wet

Rolled into the essence beyond the machine perfection of human intelligence

Into that where no words can peer or sound vibrate

Or thoughts claw their meaning on mind

Into that ineffable:

‘Hiranmayen patrena Satyasaphihitam mukham,

Tattwampushanapabrunu Satya Dharmaya Drustaye’ (Isha Upanishad)

BRAHMAN should not be sought as an objective reality, it

is to be realised in one’s own self .

The contentless consciousness of our own being or self

free from all superimposition of body and the mind, is BRAHMAN.

The 5 sheaths or kosas are modifications of the elements,

born to die and are known to be different from “I”-

the Pure Self.

The Self is beyond all modifications,

unborn, immortal  and the witness of all.

‘The higher form of meditation is therefore considered to be meditation on the principle of sound (nada) which is symbolized by the sacred syllable AUM, a syllable said to include all possibilities of speech since it is made of a guttural, a labial and a nasal sound, all other sounds being unavoidably contained within this triangle”.- (Alain Danielou)

Appearing apparently real

From the formidable void of a super-luminal absence;

He saw the Dharmarajika stupa

The circular shrine, the apsidal shrine

All that lay scattered everywhere

The burning of alphabets

The crucifixion on the stone

Only touched by the wind

And the rain

Or embalmed by the fire

That moved the cradle to-and-fro

In the destiny of the womb

Where silence is churned

And speech made erect

And blind given the vision to see

The sky’s colourful rainbow

On the edges of the golden bowl

The grass bowl, the rice bowl

Humming with the beautiful monarch butterfly

Or with the skipper or the whistler

The chestnut-bellied nuthatch looked up

Climbing the branches of the pine

It must have recognized

The summer’s pawn on the sleeves of the cloud

Makes merry the rain, clear and loud

Falling with its eternal belongings

Where the river knows the way….

“Noumenon” necessarily is total potentiality. If it functions, in functioning it mustbe subjective, and thereby inevitably objective too. That is to say, subject objectivises itself and so becomes apparent to itself as object, manifesting phenomenally ‘within’ itself. It looks at itself and perceives the universe- which is then apparently outside itself, since objectivisation is a process of apparent objectivisation. Therefore, the phenomenal universe is the objective aspect of the noumenon.

Tourism supports 1 in 10 jobs, outpacing global economy for 6th consecutive year, WTTC

Travel & Tourism generated 1 in 10 of the world’s jobs in 2016 as the sector grew by 3.3%, outpacing the global economy for the sixth year in a row, reads a new report by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC).

WTTC’s Economic Impact Report 2017, which is conducted in conjunction with Oxford Economics, researches the economic impact of Travel & Tourism impact on global level, for 25 regions, and 185 countries.

According to the research, Travel & Tourism grew by 3.3% in 2016, generating US$7.6 trillion worldwide, which is 10.2% of global GDP when the direct, indirect and induced impacts are taken into account. The sector supported a total of 292 million jobs in 2016, which is 1 in 10 of all jobs in the world

Additionally, global visitor exports, which is money spent by foreign visitors, accounted for 6.6% of total world exports, and almost 30% of total world services exports.

David Scowsill, President & CEO, WTTC, said: “This is the sixth year in a row that Travel & Tourism has outpaced the global economy, showing the sector’s resilience, and the eagerness of people to continue to travel and discover new places, despite economic and political challenges across the world.

The continuous growth of our sector underlines the significance of business and leisure travel in driving economic development and job creation throughout the world.”

Southeast Asia (8.3%) was the region with the fastest growing Travel & Tourism sector in 2016, driven by the expanding Chinese outbound market and the countries own growing markets. Latin America (0.2%) was the slowest growing region. Some countries performed well above the world average, but the Brazilian economy dragged down the whole region.

The other regions registered the following growth: South Asia (7.9%), North East Asia (4.6%), Oceania (4.4%), the Caribbean (3.2%), North America (3.1%), the Middle East (2.7%), Sub-Saharan Africa (2.4%) and Europe (1.6%).

Travel & Tourism is expected to grow by 3.8% in 2017, generating US$ 7.9 trillion. This growth is slower than previously forecast, as a result of a downgrade to the global economy and a dampening of consumer spending.

Over the next decade the sector is forecast to grow at an average of 3.9% per year. By 2027 it will generate more than 11% of the world’s GDP and employ a total of 380 million people. One quarter of all jobs created in the next decade will be supported by Travel & Tourism.

Scowsill continued “The future prospects for Travel & Tourism are good, but the sector continues to face challenges. The impact of terrorism and the rise of populism pose a severe risk to the ability of people to travel efficiently and securely. The sector itself needs urgently to address the impact of growth on destinations and its own contribution to climate change if it is to be sustainable in the long term. The UN’s 2017 International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development is a perfect opportunity to explore solutions together. We look forward to welcoming delegates at our upcoming Global Summit in Bangkok, Thailand, 26-27 April where these challenges will be addressed.”

About WTTC:

The World Travel & Tourism Council is the global authority on the economic and social contribution of Travel & Tourism. It promotes sustainable growth for the sector, working with governments and international institutions to create jobs, to drive exports and to generate prosperity. Every year WTTC, together with Oxford Economics, produces its flagship Economic Impact Report, which looks at the socioeconomic benefits of Travel & Tourism on global, regional and country level. This year the report shows data on 25 regional groupings and 185 countries.

Travel & Tourism is a key driver for investment and economic growth globally. The sector contributes US$7.6 trillion or 10.2% of global GDP, once all direct, indirect and induced impacts are taken into account. The sector also accounts for 292 million jobs or one in ten of all jobs on the planet.

For over 25 years, WTTC has been the voice of this industry globally. Members are the Chairs, Presidents and Chief Executives of the world’s leading, private sector Travel & Tourism businesses, who bring specialist knowledge to guide government policy and decision-making, and raise awareness of the importance of the sector.

WTTC’s annual Global Summit brings together over 900 delegates to discuss the opportunities, challenges and issues facing the industry, while its Tourism for Tomorrow Awards recognise the industry’s power to be a positive force in sustainability. This year’s Summit will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, 26 – 27 April 2017.

Waiting with an openness of being                20161223_112622

Without any fixed notion or objective

This is a kind of everlasting transcendental openness

With an immense joy one just waits….

Waits and waits and waits…

The song of the universe wells up in the heart

And the myriad colours at the core of one’s being

Attuned to the pure consciousness

Lights the lamp to kindle a billion stars

This is a supramental descent

An act of grace but not by any individual effort

A supraconscient release of the plenum existence

Into an ocean of bliss

And a masterwork of the Divine perfection is laid

It is not a trial that the soul undergoes

But a process by which replenishment occurs

Beyond any mortal judgement or choice

Eternity shapes time’s insufficiency

Turning many vortices to accelerate evolution

Within the body, a conscious-energy recalibrates itself

By drawing upon the design-patterns reflected in the mirror series

A leap in awareness is a primordial step

Mind-to-Mind transfer completing the karmic-loop

The universe unfolds itself in alphas and omegas

In a persistent colour of perception the drama is told

An actor free to enact every possibility

He, the redeemer not by choice or by birth

But by soul-deliverance of the eternal sacrifice

That assigns divinity to a god or a stone

Builds the foundation based on the Semiotics of Surrender

A prayer upon a prayer upon a prayer…

Consciously experienced as the ecstasy in all

He who has planted the root of unity in differences

‘A vast surrender was his only strength’.

“He is never seen, but is the witness; He is never heard, but is the Hearer; He is never thought of, but is the Thinker; He is never known, but is the Knower. There is no Other witness but Him, no other hearer but Him, no other thinker but Him, no other knower but Him”. – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

Invocations Devi Khadgamala Stotra, 17th Feb 2017, Auroville

Performed @ Auroville’s SAWCHU platform  in Bharat Nivas

Performers @ Rekha and Laurence, and filmed by Manohar

The Sri Devi Khadga Mala Stotram is a very special composition of praying to the Goddess Shakti, the Divine Mother in a unique and complete way. Unique in the sense that each of the names uttered is for a significant cause, with meaning description and encapsulated with divine energy and utmost devotion.

Khadgamala Stotram is a hymn sung in the praise of Divine Mother, which is said to bestow a protective garland of mystical weapons from the Devi from all sorts of calamities upon those who recite it. The Devi Khadga Mala Stotram takes us mentally through the Sri Chakra, the mystical geometric representation of the Supreme Goddess, describing the significance and meaning for each form given.
