Skulls lying on the grass

And bones rattled in the whispering haze                    Jesus in the Wilderness (Forest of the Retreating Spirit Far Arden Again)

Are looking at each other

And directing their vision on a ray of empty sunbeam

They are talking about the moment of resolution

Where time has lost its speed in the stillness of the void

And space like a stranger without an address or passport

Is forever arriving on the transit

Walking without walking

At the eternal terminal of no end

Where speechless mind reaches the silence of the stars

In the field where the knower is the known

It then has become the totality of all experiences

Existential, pre-existential and integral brand of the Brahman

Exploring its own potentiality through myriad means

A spark of awareness in its universal plan

Can transcend the material reality of the worlds

By the sweetest interplay of Sankirtan-Lila

“Hare Krishna Hare Krishna

Krishna Krishna Hare Hare

Hare Rama Hare Rama

Rama Rama Hare Hare”.

Going Back to the Essence: “He who in action sees inaction and action in inaction…he has accomplished all his work” (Bhagavadgita)

f3

Dharmakaya, Samij Datta, Digital Art /Artist’s Impression, 2012

The single-mindedness of bare attention is a key feature of practicing Mindfulness. Everything is just basic space where apparently ‘things’ get configured or are arranged in the phenomenal world for us to experience. Space and Awareness are both the same thing and they are inseparable. If sugar is space, then sweetness is the awareness of it. But don’t think of awareness of the sweetness of sugar as an Emergent Property, it is not. They cannot be separated. In fact, space is awareness, and, awareness is space. But space is a non-euclidean geometric manifold within the phenomenal universe or in Bohm’s explicate order. There is three-fold space which are mingled in one, the space of pure empty Rigpa or non-dual awareness which enfolds within it the 2 other spaces. This is Chidakasha, the space of primordial awareness which beyond cause and effect and it has no beginning or end. Then it unfolds the mind-space or thought-space which is information space of all events in all timelines in the multiverse. This is Chittakasha, the realm of quantum-energy field or Einstein’s 4 dimensional space-time, however subtle, this space is mentally perceptible but still dualistic compared to Primordial Consciousness Space or Chidakasha. This unfolds into Mahakasha, the universal physically real gross space that we interact with containing stars, galaxies within universes. Awareness is available in all the 3 space-vehicles depending on the conditioning. The Non-dual Awareness Space or Rigpa is empty, as also the 2 other spaces and the knowing of it is Realisation. Well, three-fold space is actually not mingled, but they are pre-mixed which means Chittakasha and Mahakasha are already present in the Chidakasha in an involuted form. The gradual unfolding is the process of evolution through manifestation. Bohm’s Explicate order or the 3-d space is the world of relativity where opposites impose dual conditioning, splitting awareness into subject and object for experience to take place. This is the physical sensory realm, the information being managed at a realm subtler than it, in the Thought-Space or Chittakasha or Bohm’s Implicate Order. Karmic propensities based on cause and effect originate from though-space of still dualistic consciousness. But since the origin of space is empty, therefore, it can take any form without any hindrance. If form is understood not just as thing but as an appearance, a functioning, a process of manifestation then it enables us to see correctly in a non-objective way giving us the self-realization. This is the non-dual awareness. Finally, ”functioning” itself is void and ”voidness” is ”functioning”.

“If it is no problem, why mention it.

Everything spoken means that, 

it’s opposite, & everything else.

I’m alive, I’m dying.”

-Jim Morrison

Moments of Awareness (Dogen’s Existential Moments or ‘uji’) or Satori are those non-linear discontinuous moments of empty congizance cut out from an apparent continuous time-line where the subject-object split is apperceived and transcended. It requires Total Attention and Clear Awareness in our daily life. The prescription for accomplishing this was given by the Buddha himself in an early sutra: “In what is seen there must be just the seen; in what is heard there must be just the heard; in what is sensed (as smell, taste or touch) there must be just what is sensed; in what is thought there must be just the thought”. (Udana I, translated by Nyanaponika Thera)

The attainment of non-duality is the goal of spiritual evolution. Whatever reality the manifold phenomena possess is empirical and illusory, vyavaharika, but, non-duality is paramarthika, absolute and immutable. “This entire universe is the Purusha alone, both that which was and that which endures for the future”. (Rig Veda)

Grantchester Meadows, Pink Floyd, 1969

‘And a river of green is sliding unseen beneath the trees,
Laughing as it passes through the endless summer making for the sea.
In the lazy water meadow
I lay me down.
All around me,
Golden sunflakes covering the ground,
Basking in the sunshine of a by gone afternoon,
Bringing sounds of yesterday into my city room.’

(Grantchester Meadows, Roger Waters, Pink Floyd, Ummagumma, 1969)

The chirping of the skylark, the acoustic guitar and the chorus intermingling with the meadow silence and the memory of the event in the city room are just examples of empty cognizance. True to the song, amidst the silence of the countryside, one connects naturally with the ‘Dharmakaya’ essence through the bardo experience of life, that essence is non-dual awareness, the primordial purity of the mind free of conceptual thinking. At the same time, it’s expression is conceptual thinking. “The splashing of the kingfisher flashing to the water” is one such expression (in the material universe or phenomenal world, all matter comes in discrete units, single electrons, single photons; also discrete moments are entangled with every discrete manifestation of matter-energy) and when we have full attention on that existential moment, we can cut it out from the linear continuity of the explicate order and jump into the thought-space from where it originated, through that with more realization to the primordial essence of the dharmakaya – primordial purity + spontaneous nature. That is our source, we are it, an AWARENESS SPACE OF EMPTY CONGNIZANCE.

“You see time fly

The face changes as the heart breathes and beats

We are not constant

We are an arrow in flight

The sum of the angles change…”/Jim Morrison

Rakta Ganesha Tibetan Thangka Painting

Raktya Ganesha, Old Tibetan Thangka

Darkness and light rally against each other
But none wins
And there’s no loser
Gods have descended in the valleys and plains
Angels and demigods have erected mansions out of thin air
But for whom did they create?
Man slept in the caves and bred races of new men
Fought for flesh and bones
And for technology and women

Learned the semoitics of langue and parole

In ‘A game of chess’

Life and death alternating between the seasons

Hearts throbbing

Lord Ganesha Folk Art

Lord Ganesha Folk Art

Like stars in the distant galaxies

Flickering like a candle flame

Surge of windy waves blow them out

Writing epitaph of the songbird and elephant

In gold letters of dust
While woman stood the ground
They declared their independence and solidarity
And children begged or laughed and were killed
Saints and yogis came to help

Cannonized by time

They incarnated the holy syllables
And joined the circus
Preaching divine love
And all that is everlasting
But none will remain in end my friend
This drama soon will fade and die

The Seventh Seal Chess Game

Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal (Chase Game Scene Life vs Death)

Another one in another time
An actor will strike his virtue

Amitabha in the Pure Land

Amitabha Buddha In the Pure Land

Polished by the educational enterprises

That start the DIALOGUE OF DUALITY

And PHILOSOPHISE EXISTENTIAL DELIVERANCE
Mountains are strong and old
Streams of cold benevolence
Shrouded the black vestige of a meteorite rock
They called it the sacred lingam
They called it so and perpetuated mantras
They too have their presence and absence
All frail like a spider’s web
Weaving poisons and ambrosia
Reflecting stories endlessly
Mind-Speech-Body continuous

A wheel within a Wheel

Running and Screaming

Like Turner’s ‘Rain, Steam and Speed’
Creating unfathomable mysteries
Like the lotus in a pond or inside a jewel
Counting breathing cycles and beads
For an apparent purification of our selves
For the sake of all sentient beings
For the love of the meadows where the fish and the bird
In the morning mist will poetically embrace the artist and his muse
For the salon in Paris or NY
And breaking champagne bottles amidst a cheerful crowd
Committing sin forsaken by a prayer
In a country churchyard
Or inside the temple
Under the red sky
Where the sun has shed a tear
Like a droplet of rain
Splitting light into seven frequencies
Without knowing what it is
And playfully in the void you will not hear a song, my friend
I promise you will not hear the song anymore
Because end is the beginning of another journey
Too tiresome for a traveller like me
So, I have seen in the 4 directions
Darkness and light rally against each other
But none wins
And there’s no loser

They only extinguish each other.

Padmasambhava or Guru Rinpoche in Dancing Posture

“BRAHMAN IS IN THE SPACE WITHIN THE HEART” (NIHITAM GUHAYAM)

When Nirvana is made an object of desire, it becomes Samsara.

Real Nirvana cannot be desired because it is inconceivable.

“In him shadows his form the Golden Child

Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry circa 1917

Sri Aurobindo in Pondicherry, 1917

Who in the Sun-capped Vast cradles his birth:

Hiranyagarbha, author of thoughts and dreams,

Who sees the invisible and hears the sounds

That never visited a mortal ear,

Discoverer of unthought realities

Truth to truth than all we have ever known,

He is the leader on the inner roads:

A seer, he has entered the forbidden realms;

Armed with the golden speech, the diamond eye,

His is the vision and the prophecy:

Kalida Meditating

Kalida Meditating

……..

He is the carrier of the hidden fire,                     Bhagavan Dattatreya

 

……….

The conqueror of the kingdoms of the soul…”

-Savitri Book XI: The Book of the Everlasting Day, The Soul’s Choice and the Supreme

Consummation -Sri Aurobindo

True Dhyana is to realize that one’s own nature is like space, and

the thoughts and sensations come and go in this ‘original mind’

like birds through the sky, leaving no trace.

Issued from the primordial mind essence

Empty in the beginning and the end

Forever striving for a perfected form

Is pure in the naked space of awareness (rigpa)

Toying with the timeless dimensions of a mise-en-scène

Sculpting out of the fabric of a stone that cannot breathe

Evanescent thoughts vaporized like ether     Shri Shiva in Om offset lithograph, c. 1930

Into the palette of the wonderful void

Colours resonating with melody of sound

Never arising, dwelling or ceasing

But creating textures that the eye can only dream

Between sleep and waking

Flowering thousand petal lotus

Where a child is born

And begins to see

When the world comes to a naught

A moment seized in the clear light

To Immortalize the dancing rapture of the Master King… Jim Morrison 1

Without any kind of dependence he does nothing though he is

Ever engaged in work”.  (Sri Krishna in Bhagavadgita)

‘Shantih Shantih Shantih’

Therefore, Sariputra, owing to the absence of Volition and imbued with prajnaparamita (Subjective Inseeing), bodhisattvas no longer are bound by interpretive thought-processes, and so have no fear, are freed from delusion, and have found nirvana.

Space-time are extensions inevitable for manifestations of an objective world

Dualistic they are in accommodating contraries which the brain perceives

This is our biological neural perception linguistically expressed through a system of signs

The Non-verbal Silent Identification with Pure Noumenon which is neither Being Nor Non-Being is also possible and inevitable

This is the existential moment -‘uji’ cut off from spatio-temporal linearity

It is boundless and free yet discrete and non-conceptual

Experiencing that is highest yogic state -Nirvikalpa Samadhi

To become the timeless

A ceaseless transformation

That is only understood

Or, experienced

When you are the Awakened One,

The Buddha…

At the turn of wheel

The moon is bright

And full

Waning and waxing

To become the still point

In the mind

Where it will dissolve and disappear

At that extreme moment

There is neither, Dharma, or, Buddha

No Cause and Effect

No Nirvana, or, Samsara

“Except for the point, the still point,

There would be no dance,

And there is only the dance.”

The I-Concept has no nature of its own, no-thing

But it seems that it is the real self, the doer as it identifies with other objects

as their subject – once this illusion evaporates through ‘Prajnaic Functioning’

then it is called Awakening or Enlightenment

“Kings of Shambhala……According to Buddhist legend, the first ‘notable’ king of Shambhala, King Suchandra (or Chandrabhadra, Tib. Dawa Sangpo), was the one who requested teaching from the Buddha that would allow him to practice the dharma without renouncing his worldy enjoyments and responsibilities. In response to his request, the Buddha gave the first Kalachakra root tantra. By practicing the Kalachakra the whole of Shambhala became an enlightened society, with Suchandra as the ruler”.

Red Squirrel

We are aboard a ship that would cross the shores of destiny

We have crossed many oceans and mountains

We are plainly not suffering here

But have danced as the timeless being in the vehicle of our consciousness

An undivided whole that it is imperceptible to the reality we invoke in the phenomenal world

We are the immeasurable source apperceived in the zero fluctuations of a timeless moment in the interlude of a metrical verse

Those are order without ordering

Number without numbering

In the mindless dots of infinitude of circles that are radiating in and out in a bubble enclosed by another  ad infinitum

Then who writes the song whispered ear to ear no one knows?

Or, I am not the universe is my self *Noumenally there is no entity to be bound

She is the river of changing thoughts *Phenomenally there is no entity to be free

Drowning in the bubble-pack

Is holding the sun like dew drop in the spider’s web

To mirror the thunder and rain

That comes and goes

Phenomenon, as the term states, is appearance.

Unmanifested, we are noumenon, 

Manifested, we are appearance (phenomenon)

Knowing that the observed has no existence

Apart from the observer, 

Knowing that the observer has no existence 

Apart from the observed, 

Divided mind is re-united”. (From Open Secret by Wei Wu Wei)

 

Maha-Avatar Babaji Maharaj Message to the World (Also Known as the Shambhala Principles/or the Seven Solar Interstices of Gyan-Ganj

The tree of wisdom bears the fruit of ‘ananda’
That is the first principle of this creation
It is a specific manifestation pulse or vibration absorbed
Sequentially by the five elements of akasha, air, fire, water and
earth
The juice of the fruit is the truth of love without which there is no
Conjugation and harmony 2nd principle
At the core of the fruit is the seed of unity and oneness, serenely
palpable, active and fresh
This corresponds to the third principle
Eating of the fruit is an indispensable kriya which dissolves
Dualities in the One Mind giving rise to wu-wei (physical non-dual
action)
Being the basis of the 4th principle, this is liberating consciousness
Which is non-local and timeless (beyond space-time)
When the eating of the fruit is spontaneous and childlike then great
Secrecy is maintained inherently in the action
This is the open secret of becoming one with the fruit giving rise to
Self-realisation, the 5th principle
When nothing is sought because the sought is the seeker from
No-beginning no-end there is complete unification of all the different
Forces from subtlest to grossest
This then is the Nirvakalpa Samadhi experience of the Void
Things sprung from it naturally and continually like the tree of
Wisdom with the fruits of ananda
In this dynamic immutable state form is emptiness and emptiness is
form – body –mind and intellect are one by the act of karuna (6th
Principle)
Clarity of perceptible knowledge is the highest prajna that gives rise
The 7th principle of Vairagya
An utter sacrifice transcending all planes by the action of doing
Without doing is the inevitable principle of Shambhala
Then the whole world is shambhala
A dance that will script the liberation of all
From a bondage that existed only in an illusion.

“Hari Om Tat Sat
Om Namah Sivaya
Om Mani Padme Hum
