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.

PI-BOSONIC MESSENGER OF TIME ON THERMOIONIC ALBLACKICA SALTPLATE

Consciousness-Analogue

In the history of man’s syllabi time is the most important efficient factor

Emerson wrote ‘We live in succession, in division, in parts, in particles’

One of these was Betsy Ross the seamstress from Philadelphia

Stars became the cross on every silver lining in the clouds

And the crabs crawled on the sea shore of Derrida

Eating thoughts without thoughts in a senseless regime

That cannot manufacture let alone recycle the dying hybrids

Vision has lost immortality in the gratings of the mind        

The mind is a porcelain vessel with no flower but hot dying under the sun

Man is now empty of anything and everything

He has no sign of the power he acquired from his own freedom

He is a stagecoach moving aimlessly through lanes and by-lanes of his own pathetic fallacy

He is a mariner without a compass in the deep ocean of void

Arguments aped his procrastination he made instruments he cannot control

The stone was a sign of the cataclysms in nature

The wind ran into the hollow tube of the earth-tunnels

And the birds disappeared in the uranium rich effigies of man’s gratitude

And became the lost ritual song of the tribes in the month of harvest

Waters reflect annihilated questions in the pages of a paperback

Thomas Mann is dead so is Heisenberg

River angular time gave birth to thermoionic salt-plates of Alblackica

And the leaves of Acacia chanted the new anthem of love

Tetrat terav tetrat

Nestrat nihayo nestrat…
