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

Understanding Dogen’s ‘Existential-Moment’ ‘UJI’-Living ‘Here and Now’

Hoogly Latitude Sundial

Old Sundial in the Hoogly Imambara

“Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain.
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today.
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you.
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun…- Time, The Dark Side of the Moon, Pink Floyd

The duality with regard to Time arises when we perceive it as ‘Durational’ associated with numerical expression of a ‘before’ and ‘after’ which is measurable. This is old Aristotelian concept of time measured linearly.

The final realization of ‘Time’ takes place when we understand Dogen’s ‘UJI’ or ‘Being-Time’ as a fleeting ‘Moment’ of existence. That is Samadhi experience of the timeless leaking through the quantized time of existential moments. Then TIME IS ON YOUR SIDE AND NOT FLYING AWAY…THIS IS THE TRUE MEANING OF THIS SONG. ‘Here and Now’ the past and future are gathered and not separate – this is APPERCEIVING -SEEING BEYOND THE SUBJECT-OBJECT SPLIT.

*”Through the mind alone (purified by knowledge) is IT to be realized. There is no differentiation whatsoever in the Brahman. He goes from death to death who sees in IT, as it were, differentiation”. – Brihadaranyaka Upanishad

To see beyond differences is to be realised in the Noumenal

The ‘Duality’ is the manifested phenomenal aspect of our extension in 3Dspace-time

Not a single particle exists separately

It is actually a temporary localised pulse emerging from a larger field

The phrase ‘as it were’ (iva) is the crux of the Upanishadic instruction regarding the universe and our daily life in it. Whenever the Upanishads seem to concede the reality of the world, even in the slightest degree, the phrase ‘as it were’ is to be added; for anything ‘other’ than Brahman is an appearance.

ORDINARY MIND is the TAO when it is free from INTENTIONAL ACTION – MINDFULNESS OF BODY

UJI- is the ALL INCLUSIVE DIMENSION

PRESS RELEASE:

£8 million monsoon project launches in India

A project involving scientists from the UK and India to predict monsoon rainfall by studying ocean processes in the Bay of Bengal launches today.

Scientists from the University of East Anglia (UEA) will release underwater robots to monitor how ocean conditions influence monsoon rainfall.  Meanwhile collaborators from a partner project led by the University of Reading with collaborators across the UK and India will use a state-of-the-art aircraft to take atmospheric measurements at the same time.

It is hoped that the combined results of this large-scale scientific campaign will help forecast the arrival of the Indian monsoon more accurately than ever before.

As well as improving rainfall prediction, the research could revolutionise subsistence farming, improve the livelihoods of millions of people, and help mitigate the damage caused by monsoons when they hit land.

Summer monsoons provide 80 per cent of annual rainfall to around a billion people in India.

Forecasting the precise timing and location of the rains is vital to the region’s economy, which is dominated by farming, and for managing its increasingly pressured water resources.

Accurate predictions of intense downpours and breaks in the monsoon are essential to help farmers plan their crop planting and communities prepare for floods and droughts.

Last year, the monsoon spread rapidly over northern India, causing devastating damage, whereas prolonged breaks in 2009 led to a severe shortage of rainfall and poor harvests.

Lead researcher Prof Adrian Matthews, from UEA’s School of Environmental Sciences, said: “The Indian monsoon is notoriously hard to predict. It is a very complicated weather system and the processes are not understood or recorded in science.

“We will be combining oceanic and atmospheric measurements to monitor weather systems as they are generated. Nobody has ever made observations on this scale during the monsoon season itself so this is a truly ground-breaking project.

“We are aiming for a better understanding of the actual physical processes. What we have now are imperfect models for predicting monsoon rainfall when it hits land, so this will create better forecasts.

“Ultimately, the goal is to improve the prediction of monsoon rainfall over India. This will be enormously beneficial for India’s subsistence farmers, who need to know when and how much rain will fall. This would then enable them to change the timing of how they plant their crops.

“We hope that it will also help to mitigate international disasters caused by extreme rainfall and flooding.

“We also hope to better understand how the southern Asian monsoon affects the whole world’s climate,” he added.

The Bay of Bengal Boundary Layer Experiment (BoBBLE) is led by UEA scientists in collaboration with the University of Reading and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton.

Collaborators in India include the Centre for Atmospheric and Oceanic Sciences (CAOS), the Indian National Centre for Climate Information Services (INCOIS), the National Centre for Medium Range Weather Forecasting (NCMRWF) and the National Institute of Ocean Technology (NIOT).

The UEA team will arrive in India today and are due to set sail on June 24 from Chennai into the Bay of Bengal on the Indian research ship the Sindhu Sadhana.

Dr M Rajeevan, secretary for the Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences, will visit the ship and meet the research team on the afternoon of its departure.

Once out in the ocean, they will then release seven underwater gliders to measure ocean properties such as temperature, salinity and current.

The team will spend a month at sea – with data from the 250-mile stretch of international water beamed back to the UK using mobile phone signals daily.

Back in the UK, researchers at UEA, the University of Reading and NOC, will use this data to create computer models of the ocean to determine how it affects weather systems and rainfall over India.

“Our collaborators will be flying out from Bangalore to make simultaneous observations in the atmosphere above us. It will be really rather spectacular,” added Prof Matthews.

Previous missions undertaken by UEA’s fleet of gliders have helped researchers make a variety of discoveries including why the Antarctic ice caps are melting.

The project is funded by the Natural Environment Research Council, the Newton Fund, the Indian Ministry of Earth Sciences (MoES) and the UK’s Met Office.

It only stops at dimensionless points

Giving rise to awareness of a timeless plane of existence

Every moment there exists this Shiva-wall time

Talk time, walk time, running time, rowing time, golf time and zillion other moments of awareness

They enact the drama of the world unfolding the flow of its empty source

He stood as if there was a life-time of being in the stillness of gyrations

Static dynamic ensemble of the clothed desires of life, reveal the nakedness of being

He tears the ravaged body flashing light unto flesh and bones

Death is the sonorous mystery singing the joy of breath (prana) through the interface of mind and matter

Who stood there silent and strong?

sri caitanya maha-prabhu

Sri Caitanya Maha-Prabhu

Fearlessly quiet like a shadow in a dream

Rising to meet the vision of one’s plenitude

Darkness the abode of the blessed light

Blinded by the passion of its intelligence forgets the empty nature of things

Who is there standing alone?

Carrying the weight of a heavy heart

Broken by the cry and scream of the spirits alive or dead

Who is there living alone, carrying the mangled body of his lover?

Who is and not?

“The flowers depart when we hate to lose them;

The weeds arrive while we hate to watch them grow”– Dogen 

“But beyond and above this intellectual utility of Art, there is a higher use, the noblest of all, its service to the growth of spirituality in the race….Spirituality is a wider thing than formal religion and it is in the service of spirituality that Art reaches its highest self-expression. Spirituality is a single word expressive of three lines of human aspiration towards divine knowledge, divine love and joy, divine strength, and that will be the highest and most perfect Art which, while satisfying the physical requirements of the aesthetic sense, the laws of formal beauty, the emotional demand of humanity, the portrayal of life and outward reality, as the best European Art satisfies these requirements, reaches beyond them and expresses inner spiritual truth, the deeper not obvious reality of things, the joy of God in the world and its beauty and desirableness and the manifestation of divine force and energy in phenomenal creation….Therefore Art has flowed in two separate streams in Europe and Asia, so diverse that it is only now that the European aesthetic sense has so far trained itself as to begin to appreciate the artistic conventions, aims, and traditions of Asia. Asia’s future development will unite these two streams in one deep and grandiose flood of artistic self-expression perfecting the aesthetic evolution of humanity….Art can express eternal truth, it is not limited to the expression of form and appearance…All human activity reaches its highest and noblest when it succeeds in bringing body, heart, and the mind into touch with spirit…What Nature is, what God is, what man is can be triumphantly revealed in stone or on canvas.” – ‘The National Value of Art’, Sri Aurobindo

Why are there beings at all, instead of Nothing?”
― Martin Heidegger, Introduction to Metaphysics      

Heidegger

                                Heidegger

Stillness mirrors ecstasy

The gamma ray pulsars spinning prodigiously

Sending signals back in a loop

Sculpting in time

Out of wood and stone

Images or forms that vibrate with celestial beauty

Through an interlocutory medium

Plastic and sensory

Intuitively mobile

Movements of the discreetness of matter

That are felt by thoughts

And hearts connecting to stillness in nature

That present humanity must develop

As the tendency of the highest mind to break optical illusions

And become only the photon to be sensed by the Void

Swallowed by the gravity in the black hole pool

To be on the other side (Imaginative Hyper-connective Vessels – Frinctuon of Adi Chinatamani Stone)

Leaving Hawkings’ super-translations as a trace on the event horizon

Though with low resolution

For the phenomenal world to read

And ponder upon…
