Presented to the seeking of the soul

The sweetness and the might of an idea,

Each deemed Truth’s intimate fount and summit force,

The heart of the meaning of the universe,

Perfection’s key, passport to Paradise.

…….

Light stood embraced by light, fire wedded fire.

– Book II, Canto XII, Savitri, Sri Aurobindo

 

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

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

“Strength shall be with her like a conqueror’s sword

And from her eyes the Eternal’s bliss shall gaze”.

– Savitri, Book III: The Book of the Divine Mother Canto IV: The Vision and the Boon,

Sri Aurobindo                                                                       Divine Mother Symbol

The dark ignorance of matter

And the falsehood of its twin, the mind

Are billion of years old;

They are the expressions in the cosmic web

They are the connecting fibers

And yet, they are limited to space and time

Only articulate to the senses and not beyond

The Self is the witness to these things

Untouched and completely pure

it’s the shining source of all bliss

The conscious existence of the self is timeless

Satyam Jnaanam Anantam Brahma (Taittiriya Upanishad 2.1.1)

The journey of man’s quest to higher consciousness takes place under the auspices of the Self

The operational hermeneutics is designed by the Divine Mother (Adi Shakti)

With signals encoded on the path to total surrender (Samarpan)

No one does surrender

There’s no doer, only a witness

An observer, the Self

The small ego mind (or me) tries with effort

The Little Child Krishna

Caught up in web of ignorance and doubt

He tries every other path that he can grasp

And fails and dies,

And comes back again and again

To script the tragedy of the earth

An Ecstatic Sri Ramakrishna

Sri Ramakrishna in Ecstasy

Shakespearean rag or a Sophoclean grandeur?

Or, a comedy entailed in the irony of Waiting?

The circus goes on…

With new players and plays

And their farcical movements? 2nd or 3rd?

Symphonies are lost and found

Cities destroyed and annihilated

And prayers broken by a cacophony of words

or under the effect of gravity?

(Is it not the source and origin of the very idea of  weight?)

Working out mathematical models for further evolution

Who has passed all these eons from pre-big bang to the particle smashers?

Who has survived to see what it is and shall be?

Who has endured the pain and the joy?

Who?

Tagore and Einstein

Tagore Einstein Meeting

The historians or the evolutionary biologists?

Or the theoretical physicists?

Or the technocrats?

Or the Politicians?

Only, the Observer is…

And surrender happens

Have faith in the Self (The Brahman)

And be blessed by the Mother

When King Janaka asked Ashtavakra

About knowledge, liberation and dispassion

The answer was:

”na pṛthvī na jalaṁ nāgnirna vāyurdyaurna vā bhavān eṣāṁ sākṣiṇamātmānaṁ cidrūpaṁ viddhi muktaye” 1.3

”You do not consist of the elements – earth, water, fire, air or even ether. To be liberated, know yourself as consisting of consciousness, the witness of these”.

”yadi dehaṁ pṛthak kṛtya citi viśrāmya tiṣṭhasi adhunaiva sukhī śānto bandhamukto bhaviṣyasi”

”If only you will remain resting in consciousness, seeing yourself as distinct from the body, then even now you will become happy, peaceful and free from bonds”. 1.4

Are there any direct messages on consciousness than these?

Be touched by the grace of the divine mother and know thyself

Allow openness and not rigidity

Let the neural networks reconfigure themselves

the descent of consciousness has to take place from a higher dimension

from the noumenal center

then, you have abandoned the doer in you

And awakening is waking-up to what is here

And now….witnessing

Om Maa

A feeling that the soul is cradled by the universe

It moves to and fro

Commutes the distance in an inexplicable wonder

tagores-chair-in-mongpoo

Tagore’s Chair Mongpoo

Through the refrain of an impermanent body,

Clothed in a dream, it peeks at reality

It must surrender itself to a cause beyond cause

And every effect must reap the flower-song and bird-wish

To be realized by the poet and the painter

As the eternal music the redeemer brings

To free us from the round of birth-n-death.

White Heron Japanese Scroll Zen Painting 

Paradise speaks wantonly

But the museum depleted with memories

Of diaries, letters and blurred photographs

Offers only a brief consolation

Like the rushes singing in the grove

Though these are ways of presencing the past history

But a moment can only be eternized in consciousness

By the prayer of a billion minds

Singing the song in unison

That cradles the universe inside the soul.

To and fro they move

They must meet the stranger

Which is ‘I am always present’.

‘I am THAT-I-AM’.

‘My relative absence is my absolute presence

And my relative presence is my absolute absence’.
