 So as we see it at this point anyhow, all of this is a part of Brahma-loka, specifically in what we might call Mahar-loka, corresponding to details of the Solar Plexus and the Full Moon Nakshatra and Brahman Consciousness as it stands in itself (Brahma-Brahma-Brahma) — although again, none of this will probably be viewable upon first conscious immersion in and as Brahman — for one thing, when first comprehending the speed of light, the light itself appears to disappear (Dark Night of the Soul), and the first thing one is likely to notice on finally admitting the perfection of Now and admitting Self as Brahman is that everything is “frozen” Self. It can be kind of overwhelming, and a lot of this material above doesn’t really become evident until or unless one begins to ask “How does THAT Wholeness manifest all of THIS appearance of maya?” and starts to conceive the Hiranyagarbha, the gunas and all the rest :-)
 
 <snip>

 From this point, anyhow, all of this — the Devatas, the Veda and so
forth — *do* appear to be in Brahma-Brahma-Brahma, which is usually
*glimpsed* at the golden no-time-space point of “Fusion with the
Solar Angel,” but probably not fully appreciated until one has
completed some form of the 27 “states” or guna-permutations and is
able to hang out at will in the intensely rich golden Love-field in
the so-called gap after one’s dissolution (Shiva-Shiva-Shiva) and
before one’s conception (Vishnu-Vishnu-Vishnu). (This appears to be
the Love-river of billions of ascending souls flowing toward and
into our Great Central Sun, but corresponds equally probably to the
consciousness of one’s own sperm-compatriots approaching the Great
Egg of one’s own conception :-) )

And while this “gap” appears as Alpha and Omega, at the very core of
both Bhu-Loka and Satya-Loka, it is the same Brahma-Brahma-Brahma
that appears “Crucified” at Mahar-Loka. It is in Mahar-Loka that one
loses the attachment and identification with one’s small “I” into
the Perfection of Self-evident certainty of THAT and is crucified
into Nirvana or Brahman.

Much, much then remains to be done however to integrate that
Understanding into all of one’s bodies, allowing one’s Shakti to
cleanse every stain on one’s raiments back into Love; this is
completed as one gradually extends that Wholeness to embrace
everything manifested — all our “demons” excommunicated by our
judgement of our own anger, rage, resentment, fear, terror, sadness,
remorse, anguish, sorrow, rebellion, shame, humiliation, guilt,
abuse, victimization, projection, and so on — all fully recognized,
absolved and absorbed.

It is to Mahar-Loka that one returns, at the completion of the cycle
and realization of one’s Love-flow, to indwell the HRIT, or Sacred-
Heart center *as* the incarnation of Brahma(n) or YHWH, wherein now
the golden Love-field of our devatas are fully enlivened and
communicable. It is in the HRIT that the petals of the Mahasiddhis
are placed; we don’t tend to allow ourself full access to these
until we have embraced the whole of creation and *know* that all is
Love :-)

………………………………………

My current understanding — open to revision — is Bhur-loka
(correlated with the base chakra) is the physical plane; Bhuvar-loka
(sex chakra) is the astral plane, and our biosphere; Swarga-loka
(navel) is the mental (Manasic) plane and the planet as a whole
(whereas Hrit, the Sacred Heart between the navel and the heart,
equates to the Sun and Solar System); and Mahar-loka (heart) is the
intuitional (Buddhic) plane, which includes (I believe) the
constellation-awareness embracing our Sun, and centered more
specifically perhaps in the Sirius system.

Jana-loka (throat) is the Atmic plane of Mahat, associated with
galactic-consciousness. Interestingly, the 27-state system places Jana-
loka in the gap between state 17 (Brahma-Shiva-Shiva, complement of
transcendence-II), Purva Ashada nakshatra, and state 18 (Shiva-Vishnu-Vishnu, complement of transcendence-I), Uttara Ashadha nakshatra. Purva Ashada is delta Sagittarii and Uttara Ashada is sigma Sagittarii, which places the gap itself in Sagittarius, lately acknowledged as the location of our Galactic center. This gap would be the “afterimage” Vishnu-Brahma-Brahma, or “birth”… perhaps the birth of our Galaxy :-)
 
………………………………………

*lol* Here’s a possible revision already, mapped onto 9 chakras:
Bhur-loka (between crown-chakra of next-lower Being and feet chakra
of this Being) is the physical plane; Bhuvar-loka (base chakra) is
the astral plane; Swarga-loka (midway between sex and navel, gap
between transcendence-I and transcendence-II, overseen by the 7
rishis of the Great Bear) is the area between the upper astral and
the mental (Manasic) plane; Mahar-loka (Hrit, the “Solar Plexus” or
Sacred Heart midway between the navel and the heart), equates to the Sun and Solar System, spanning the “causal” realm between navel: mental plane of earth, and heart: the intuitional (Buddhic) plane, which includes (I believe) the constellation-awareness embracing our Sun, and centered more specifically perhaps in the Sirius system.

Jana-loka (thymus region, between heart and throat, and between
buddhic plane and the Atmic plane of Mahat) is associated with
galactic-consciousness. Interestingly, the 27-state system places
Jana-loka in the gap between state 17 (Brahma-Shiva-Shiva,
complement of transcendence-II), Purva Ashada nakshatra, and state
18 (Shiva-Vishnu-Vishnu, complement of transcendence-I), Uttara
Ashadha nakshatra. Purva Ashada is delta Sagittarii and Uttara
Ashada is sigma Sagittarii, which places the gap itself in
Sagittarius, lately acknowledged as the location of our Galactic
center. This gap would be the “afterimage” Vishnu-Brahma-Brahma,
or “birth”… perhaps the birth of our Galaxy.

Tapa-loka (third-eye, the plane of Avyakta) would then be something
like galactic-cluster-consciousness, and Sat-loka (bindu-point above
crown-chakra and below the feet-chakra of the next-higher Being)
would be Universal-consciousness.

Again, this is only a (rather crude) map, ommitting the harmonics
showing the absolutely essential Unity of the highest (Sat-loka) and
the lowest (Bhur-loka) and the midmost (Mahar-loka): the “triple-
Sun” of the earth-chakra below our feet, the heaven-chakra overhead,
and the “Solar-plexus” or Sacred-Heart chakra in our middle — all
forms of Brahma-Brahma-Brahma, or Pure Consciousness.

…As you see, I have shifted gears a bit, taking care of the
few “densities” remaining here on my own time, in my own field, in
silence — and using FFL rather as a forum to think out loud,
helping me ground and flesh out various understandings and hypotheses.

………………………………………

*lol* That’s what I (and I suspect many of us) often do in deep
sleep — go to various realms and download stuff :-)

…I realize I erred in calling my previous post a 9-
chakra map — it really is 27 (sub-)chakras (of course) :-) … and
along those same lines, that three-tier (guna, subguna, sub-subguna)
27-state system is really begging to be seen *all* as 27 substates
of a Maha-Brahma, part of a more inclusive 81-state (four-tier)
system including a 27-state Maha-Vishnu and a 27-state Maha-
Shiva…the lovely thing about 81 states (or subchakras) is it
allows for a fully-fleshed 9 x 9 matrix including holographic
subcastes of all nine castes, dealing with all nine states of Being:
Nine categories of Servant, dealing with the elemental realm; nine
of Artisan, dealing with the mineral realm (base center; material
objects) nine of Merchant, dealing with the vegetable realm (sex
center; prana, food); nine tiers of Military, dealing with the
animal realm (navel center; power); nine forms of Ruler, dealing
with the human realm (Hrit center or Solar Plexus; mercy and
judgement); nine of the Clerics (Brahmans) dealing with the
ancestral realm  (heart center; compassion and devotion; symbolism
and ritual); nine of the Mages dealing with the Angelic realm
(throat center; magical vibration; music and speech); nine of the
Sages or Seers dealing with the divine realm (brow center; time and
space); and nine of the “Elohim” dealing with the Unified realm
(crown center)…and again, Servant, Ruler, and “Elohim” are
essentially the same…kind of all reminds me of Tolkien’s “nine
rings”…:-)

Interestingly (perhaps), within the larger context, the old 27-state
model only embraced the kshatriyas, the rajas, and the Brahmans —
the middle three of the nine consciousness-castes…:-)
 
………………………………………

Or more accurately, the One who higher than the Elohim, is also the
One who is lower than the Servants, and the One who is the Ruler of
Rulers…

:-)

………………………………………

Very nice! Sounds as if you hang out a lot in the Gandharva-lokas … does your wife know? :-) (My wife BTW according to Shastri-Ji is a gandharva, a celestial entertainer, with most of her life
force expressing through music and dance and art, which I can definitely see. I am apparently a yaksha, which didn’t make a lot of sense to me until I read Harish Johari’s description of yakshas and
yaksha-loka in his great book/game “Leela” — all clicks now; they are apparently cognizers of cosmic laws/mechanics and such *lol* )

………………………………………

…[Shastri-Ji] did say at first I was from kinnara-loka (realm of celestial
entertainers/creators who travel freely between all the lokas), so
maybe comic justice? :-) –later adding that I cognized lots of stuff
and was a yaksha. …

………………………………………

…apparently she is an American whose Hindu name is Swami Ganga-Puri Kaliuttamananda-Giri; hence she could well be known as “Ganga-Ji” :-)

………………………………………

Yes, all those strata are essentially a mind-game to me — the only one that really counts as far as governance is concerned is our
intimacy with and Love of Divine Mother, for She is Our marriage to and dance with all of creation :-)

………………………………………

And speaking of the play of Divine Mother, I *highly* recommend chanting the Sri Lalithambika Sahasranama Stotram — the 1000 names of Mother Divine :-)

………………………………………

*lol* I haven’t even finished chanting them all *from the book* yet!
Nor is memorizing them partiularly high on my “to-do” list. I chant
about 20-30 a night before going to sleep. I also take the time to
read most of the commentary for each chant before going on to the next one.

………………………………………

OK, the math is off here somewhere — I am up around the 933d name, so either I chant more than 30/night or I have been practicing for more than a week. Some of both I suspect :-)

………………………………………

Sri Lalithambika Sahasranama Stotram — best to get one with transliterations (for easy pronunication) and engish translations :-)

………………………………………

Yes, the separatist assumption worked very well for the scientific
method and all its bounty, but does indeed “run dry” … and cold! :-) And as far as *meaningful* knowledge goes, it does appear the way
to go now is via the unitive assumption, which of course *includes*
the separatist one as well *lol*

………………………………………

[define enlightenment by exclusion: what it is not]
This single criterion by definition excludes the a
priori perfection (“enlightenment”) in this present state
(“ignorance”).  By deciding that “it” is other-than-this, one
makes “it” so.

The joke is, we then forget that we a priori decided that this isn’t
it; we forget that we have withheld our unconditional love and
blessings from the appreciation of this moment, and so we think that
we are bound into something more profound than our own not-this
decision, somehow at the mercy of our perceptions, something
external to us, more powerful than we are.

By denying the innate criterionless perfection of this moment, we
deny recognizing the subtle unity of this perfect moment “in here”
and ourSelf “out there,” and believe ourself to be immersed in pure
duality, a tiny being trapped within the otherness of not-now — of
desire, memory and spacetime!

I am not saying that merely reading these lines will necessarily be
sufficient for realizing the true nature and equivalence of Self
and “this” — the realization of Unity or Brahman is (or can be)
immensely profound and powerful but also is supremely subtle, and
though omnipresent and eternal it is very easily overlooked by more
concrete aspects of our mind (attachments, ideations, etc.), until
they cease to entrance us and fall away.

:-)

………………………………………

Quite right; enlightenment consists (in part) in taking
responsibility for one’s own perceptions; in making a conscious
choice to bless ourselves and our World unconditionally, thereby
taking the perfection of the World into our heart, and infusing it
thoroughly with our being, with our Self.

 In any case, with posts on this topic, from now on
 I will read no further than the first word implying
 some sort of intentionality.  If you have any desire
 to communicate with me about this, you’ll have to
 figure out how to do it without using any such
 terms, because I find them disrespectful, insulting,
 and hostile.

That’s your choice, of course — or not-choice, if you prefer :-)

I do wonder why you associate the idea of intentionality and
responsibility with disrespect and hostility — is it because you
equate “responsibility” with “blame”? This is not what I mean. I am
not “blaming” you for your ignorance and suffering, nor am I
implying that you have been consciously choosing it. No one
consciously chooses to suffer.

I am only saying that if you wish to *escape* suffering, you must
allow that which has been *unconscious* to *become* conscious. Old
pain will inevitably arise in this process; it is asking to be
attended to, to be healed. If this time we *eat* it, digest or
assimilate it with simple attention — “this too is OK; it is part
of wholeness” — and with breath, we allow that old pain to
finally “die” and reintegrate into the harmony of our greater whole,
freeing up all the energy that went into keeping that part of
ourselves not-OK and “exiled”. The Absolute (our consciousness) has
now moved to where it was not; we have consequently grown in love
(sat) and light (chit) and laughter (ananda)!

:-)

………………………………………

FWIW I do recall something like “walking on the web of a spider;”
this consisted in seeing a cord spin out from my navel to a distant
place and walking/running extremely lightly and swiftly along it —
it felt like a kind of horizontal levitation. Also the study of and
identification with the various solar rays over the following few
years was a very large part of my own “ascension” process :-)

………………………………………

There is at the heart of things only *I*; only the Self — so who is
to assign or receive credit or blame?

:-)

………………………………………

Though I certainly agree that immersion in a real-time satsang is in
some ways more immediately and viscerally fulfilling than an
electronic forum. I too wish to extend my heartiest welcome to you,
Judy, to enjoy our Fairfield “Kumbha Mela” personally and physically
*if* at any time you should ever have the slightest desire to do so!  :-)

………………………………………

…I’ve recently been shown some rather profound things regarding my
ongoing heart-connection to MMY and the Tradition of Masters, even
*while* thinking I was a rebel “doing my own thing.” Everyone’s path
is doubtless perfect, and I suspect we all do eventually end up in
the same place, the immortal Heart of God/dess, no matter how
distinct our individual paths may appear to be.

I’ll also go on record now as saying it has also become abundantly
clear that the “technology” behind TM is *perfect* even (or
especially) as one moves beyond Mastery into becoming a Mahatma (for clarification of these terms, please see Harold W. Percival’s brilliant book, “Adepts, Masters, and Mahatmas”) — for where a Master (one who is no longer generating karma, but is still working off old karma) “eats” desires and transmutes them into the thoughts which build a Master’s mental-body, a Mahatma (one who is no longer generating *or* working off old karma) “eats” thought itself, tracing it back into bliss and transmuting it into the divine radiance of the immortal body. TM in action!

Along these same lines, I’ve also been shown that it is now no
longer particularly appropriate for me to speak further: that
speaking publicly of these matters has become (for me) something
like indiscriminant use of the siddhis: a fruitless squandering of
energy needed elsewhere. A true “south-entrance,” in other words —
and the only One entitled to face south is Dakshinamurti, the form
of Shiva who teaches immortality — *in silence*

So for now, farewell, my brothers and sisters!

I remain Yours always in Love, Light and Laughter!

:-)
