Aparinama — The Principle of Nontransformation #62
Two of the most precious teachings of Advaita Vedanta, which can also be stated to be the twin pillars upon which this incomparable “philosophy” stands, are Ajativada and Aparinama. The first deals with the birthless, deathless nature of the Soul, or Atman, and the second follows up by revealing the fact that Divine Reality, or Brahman, does not undergo any transformation whatsoever, even when all things that fall under the auspice of name, form, time, space, and causality (the fivefold maya) suffer change and alteration, constantly. All realized souls — from Govinda to Gaudapada, Christ to Chaitanya, Moses to Mohammed, and Vasishtha to Vivekananda — knew of the immutable nature of Brahman/All-Mighty Father/Yahweh/Allah. The modern world still waits on this insuperable nondual teaching of Nontransformation that, if accepted and taken in, will transport the transmigrating soul into that singular, blissful state of Transcendence.

Atmic and Mayic Sankalpa #49
Whatever contending philosophies of the world may state, there is no doubt that Consciousness manifests in many ways. According to Lord Vasishtha’s school of Yoga, and agreed upon by other great systems, as conscious awareness we get into bodies in two distinct ways: the soul either takes on the body unconsciously, identifies with it, acts, creates karma, and gets bound into a series of lifetimes in ignorance of its Divine Origin; or it can associate with the form and give it up of its own voalition, sporting in the worlds in order to express its divinity while aiding others to break the chains of birth and death in ignorance that binds them fast into the body.

Manifested and Unmanifested Prakriti #14
Western man has projected outwards with the five senses and seen only nature in its external mode; he has not looked within to see the source of nature and the five elements in himself. That source lies in his mind, and in the collective mind of billions of other beings on various levels of existence. The human mind holds both dreaming and deep sleep states wherein the seeds to all manifestation lie. These seeds pepper the formless planes of unmanifested prakriti, and from these seeds spring all manner of subtle worlds — leaving the Formless Brahman free of impossible acts such as creation and its many imperfections.

Para and Aparavidya #30
Disbelief in “God,” or Ultimate Reality, is caused in part by our lack of distinction between lower knowledge and higher knowledge/wisdom. If higher knowledge is assigned an agreed upon category for itself among human beings, then they may begin their search for it here in relativity, leading them to Truth — a feat that lower knowledge cannot accomplish by itself. Further, it has been clearly seen that lower knowledge, if left to settle in the human mind as the only goal, becomes dangerous. Such knowledge, without tempering it by higher insight, will soon lead to ways of destroying living beings, as in science’s treatment of the atomic particle found in matter.

The Ancient Chest of Consciousness #38
Welcome tidings about the Divine Mother’s advent on earth in this day and age, is only matched by the superlative teachings of the dharma that She brings to sincere seekers of Truth. In Her “Chest of Consciousness” is held all the hidden wisdom about both the dynamics of manifestation at all its many phases, and the transcendent Reality that lies beyond them and contains them as well. Nature does not contain Her; She contains nature, and She presides over it at both the visible and invisible modes of its existence.

The Three Levels of Sankalpa/Vikalpa #28
When dreaming ego/mind complexes apparently separate themselves from Formless Reality, they immediately engage in what the India rishis have termed sankalpa — mental projection based in the desire for individual existence. Thus begins a new round of sportive play amidst the empty mental projections of collective consciousness which, unless it is engaged in with full, conscious Awareness of the Source of all Existence, finds its various far-flung parts caught in the nightmare of birth, growth, disease, decay, old age, and death for interminabvle cycles.
