“Where the wind of the senses

Has vanished from the mind,

I don’t know where my self has gone…”

-Aryadeva, Bengali Poetry

*Brahmarandhra in the cranium with its multi colored 1000 petals is the so called pedestal of Sahasrara – It the seat of the Guru and the Chaitanya Shakti

  • To progress in the practice of recognizing MIND ESSENCE, it is important to generate FAITH  and DEVOTION  towards ENLIGHTENED BEINGS and COMPASSION towards those who are not enlightened.

A complete presence of the mind

Nalateshwari Shakti Peeth Temple, Nalhati Village, Birbhum/1 of the 51 Shakti Peeths

Is the Awareness of the Universe

As Empty Oneness

It becomes still as the eye of the night heron

Waiting for a slight flutter in the lake

The fish underneath swirling unknowingly

At last death conjoins life to another life

To experience the soul’s eternal journey to its source

Myriad beings are caught in this web

They are all eternal in the flame that can never extinguish

Brahman in the stone,

In a mouthful of water gulped down by a dying man

In the streets where children dance,

In the laughter of the skies when thunder and lightning strike

Oceans are surging with waves of compassion

Inside Banerpukur Adivasi Tribal Village, Shantiniketan, Birbhum

Stars are gliding past eyes

In the flicker of a moment

The crowning sun will embellish all agony and power

When you grow young you are old

When you grow old you are young

Beyond all that you are the ageless spirit:

The eye of the heron or fins of the fish

A supremely transcendental being

I am the Bodhisattva Manjushri

The red stone in Attahash

The Kalpabriksha, the Baobab tree

I am the essence of the Supreme Essence

That comes out of the void and goes back to the void

“Our revels now are ended. These our actors,

Waterfall West Sikkim

As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air;
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherits shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep”.

(Prospero: Act IV Sc I, Tempest/Shakespeare)

The 6 precepts of Tilopa are No Thought, No Reflection, No Analysis, No Cultivation, No Intention; let it settle itself. That is complete surrender to the Divine Mother’s Force and Grace. It exercises ‘Sahaja Mukti’ or ‘easy’ or ‘natural state’ of the liberated sage. Immediate Awakening and Naturalness are the same thing, it is the most direct way communicated not by the sutras but through direct contact with the Divine.

Inside Tribal Village at Shantiniketan, Bolpur

They are not subject to death and desolation

They carry with them scriptures on the stone

Worshipped for ages

By all sentient beings

By the wind and the seas

By the fireflies, the heron and the pike

Alone She stood like a red vermillion sun

That lights the stars in the spiral galaxies

Her tender lips kissed by the sky and the grass

She played as a child

In the wild

Like raindrops on the lotus leaf

Adumbrating the great design of her creation

Inside the heart her rhythm raptures the soul

There are no differentiating lines

But only a still centre

Where the lotus blooms

To delight her eyes

The inner rhythm manifesting the object of her Will

That cannot but be only from the naught

Adore every passing moment

By a touch without touching

Grace to the flying birds

That will become the frieze on a Grecian urn.

“There is nothing equal to wearing clothes and eating food. Outside this there are neither Buddhas and Patriarchs”. (Zenrin Poem)

At the center of the space b/w the 2 brows there is a Diamond Lotus of 2 petals presided by ‘Hamsa Devata’ and ‘Susumna Shakti’ -this in the morphological body is the Ajna Chakra that corresponds to Vijnana State and Anupama Vak and to the half mantra of Pranava.

An old pond

A frog jumps in

Water’s sound. (Matsuo Basho, Zen Poet, Japan)

In the Zen, Being-Now State, it is not that moments change or that time flies but rather that the Observer is brought to the present, as if time is created by the presence of the observer who witnesses the event of the frog jumping into the pond. The spectator or observer being there at that moment creates its own ontology. Moments occur and perception follows it and its all Empty Cognizance.
