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.

The Great Gate is Now Wide Open: 21st February, 2016 – Celebrating Divine Mother’s Birthday and International M-O-T-H-E-R Language Day

Mirra Alfassa

The Divine Mother in Japan            Tibetan Mandala with Sanskrit Mantras in Concentric Circles by Carl Jung

 

All atoms are made inside the sun by thy Will

There are vibrations that compacted and expanded

These are open dance signatures of the great cosmic mandala

They come from the Void and manifest their form

How sweetly they sing and sadly they disappear

Beyond all these there is stillness

That pervades the motionless track of all existence

Perfection and imperfection exist in a plane of simultaneity

We need to go beyond….

Bright nothing where you void the void

There eternity exists as manifestation starts

Look deep inside

………..Take the Skull in your hand…

The universe exists as a pulse only in your mind

The Mother with the Children in Pondicherry

Divine Mother will Children in Pondicherry

You are the inevitable source of everything

The arch of the rainbow that bridges heaven and earth

‘A BLIND GOD IS NOT DESTINY’S ARCHITECT;

A CONSCIOUS POWER HAS DRAWN THE PLAN OF LIFE,

THERE IS A MEANING IN EACH CURVE AND LINE.

IT IS AN ARCHITECTURE HIGH AND GRAND

BY MANY NAMED AND NAMELESS MASONS BUILT

IN WHICH UNSEEING HANDS OBEY THE UNSEEN,

AND OF ITS MASTER-BUILDERS SHE IS ONE”.

Name or form apart from the substratum is the maya

So, the wise sage Aruni tells his son Svetaketu:

“That which is the subtle essence- in IT all that exists has its self.

It is the True, It is the Self. And thou, O Svetaketu, art It”.

Atyachetonar stare paripurno lekhak

Matri bhasay nirvak pran

Lekheni se kichuoi

Shekheni se kichuoi

Sudhu pran bandanay

Se awhowan kare pran

Neither time is nor its not

Only eternal awakening

At this moment

Is all what we are and will be

And when you hear the birds singing

The passing clouds bring rain

And you dance like a drop in an ocean of spontaneity {Pure Function}

Because you know that nothing is left to you at this moment

But to have a good laugh;

Narrating children the tales of Tapovan

Where mystic oneness still prevails

Like the ordinary mind the Tao

Every day the river courses its way

To meet the ocean of bliss

‘May be, like the empty sky it has no boundaries,

Yet it is right in this place,

Ever profound and clear.

Artist’s Impression of a Colossal Black Hole Which is 12 Billion Times as Massive as the Sun

When you seek to know it, you cannot see it.

You cannot take hold of it,

But you cannot lose it.

In not being able to get it, you get it.

When you are silent, it speaks;

When you speak, it is silent.

The great gate is wide open to bestow alms.

And no crowd is blocking the way.’

Divine Mother and the Petal Wheel of the Four Maha-Forces in Action

Rare is the cup fit for love’s nectar wine, 

As rare the vessel that can hold God’s birth;

A soul made ready through a thousand years 

Is the living mould of a supreme Descent.

……………………………………………………….

A moment passed that was eternity’s ray,

An hour began, the matrix of new Time.

CONSCIOUSNESS-ANALOGUE

Mirra Alfassa/Divine Mother, Monalisa 2013

Mirra Alfassa/Divine Mother, Monalisa 2013

Spring’s oeuvre in the honeycomb reconstituted lines from Savitri

A tender breeze softly huddles back to the flowering grove

In the Eden of the new book the yogic sonata grazes the distant constellations

Seasons fill your hearts with the utmost joy of a blissful state (Eragman to Extrohan)

Rains bring reverence on the dry rocks and deserts

Evening recalls prayers that are scripted on the sky like clouds that weep

The seed has the tree as the child the father of the Noachian time

In vernacular streams of silent words the prophet sees the great churning of time

Cross involuted in the withering fabric of space will fetch higher dimensional cause of descent

The quantum ring will engulf the ignorance bridging parts with the whole

Cities will open up new walmarts of consciousness bringing knowledge to mind the gap

The road Shambhala is the road to the second coming – wrahi-wraha-wraha

In the yonixo spectral stars (Class A), deep in the chamber of supramental alblackica

I am floating like a leaf on an ocean that itself is me

All that is and all that is not is still Mirra in erabonito quagman asa    Apollo Monalisa 2013

Words are meant for liberation and  not entrapment

Freedom is your choice in the will’s struggle to manifest the eternal surrender

You are the voice of the creation in the purified emblem of time’s romantic song

The trees know the truth the birds have canonized the heaven’s swift rivers of daisy

Through the light you can see the rise and fall of gravity’s reign of terror

Cycles end but the pyramid of the darkness is a feather in free space

That dark abode of the mother is the secret of the sun (Exoplanet Ressurection)

It is that that can be known in the unknown quarter of creation’s laborious day

The creation is traversing willazo-night years every 800pra-pi-nano seconds!
