Another Way of Knowing

Another Way of Knowing, by Michael just published another one of my articles. It begins:

“An ancient Seer sits in his cave atop a mountain. From deep within his being where he is one with everything, the subtle impulses underlying all of life flow through him and out his vocal cords.

“The ancient Seers awoke to that one Transcendental thing that is the source of everything, the source of their souls, which then allowed the song that it sings to emerge pure and unfettered from within them. The ancients called this “cognition”—the highest, yet most elusive, form of knowing”…

Monday night was Mahashivarathri, March 7, 2016—the most auspicious day of the year for Lord Shiva. Admittedly, I am a bit of a hermit, so my plans were to spend the night at home in private meditation. According to the Jyotish, the Muhurtha (most auspicious time) was between midnight and 1:00 a.m. So I got to bed early in order to be meditating then. During that time, the feeling in the room was palpable. The meditation was deep.

Then suddenly, like a flash, I was compelled to jump up out of meditation, quickly wrap a shawl around me, grab the temple key, and immediately rush down to the temple. Paying little attention to the time, I thought that perhaps the temple would be empty. I couldn’t have been more incorrect—the temple was packed. I walked in to find that my timing couldn’t have been more perfect for the temple visit… Aarathi was about to begin.

Still in my half-meditative state, while happy to see so many familiar faces, I enjoyed the incredibly powerful atmosphere in the temple. Telling the group of how I was pulled out of meditation to come rushing to the temple, I said it felt like Pandit Prasad had called me. He lit up and smiled and said, “Yes, only moments ago, I was thinking that you should be here.” Still, I was happy to return to my meditation at home. As I look back, my visit to the temple seems more like a dream than physical reality.

The whole day was exquisite, starting with Rudrabhishekam in the morning, then hearing the chants, conversation, and laughter as it echoed through Mount Soma all the way to my home. It was a magnificent, powerful, fulfilling, and heart-warming day throughout.

Jai Shiva Shankara

Below is a video recapping some of the day.

The Fabric of Space Part 2

The Fabric of Space Part 2 - Michael MamasThe expansion of Knowledge has no end. I remember one day sitting in the temple and listening to the Pandits chant. It carried me to a new level of appreciation of the fabric of space, i.e. the Akasha. Interestingly, prior to that experience, if I heard someone describe that experience, I believe I would have felt I knew what they were talking about. However, it was just a deeper experience of the fabric of space than I ever had before. Or perhaps it was just a new perspective on an experience I had many times before. Or perhaps those are two ways of describing the same thing. A deeper experience is just a new perspective. But could you have had that deeper experience earlier? Was your physiology refined enough to do so at an earlier time?

It was as if I was just paying closer attention to something I had experienced many time before. Sort of like if you were sitting in a chair and didn’t really pay much attention to the texture of fabric even though you had noticed and felt it many times before. Once you pay attention to it in a new way, the appreciation deepens to the point that you find it hard to believe you had not really noticed it in that way earlier.

Many things are like that, particularly if you are meditating and therefore becoming more perceptive on deeper levels of your being. A new experience seems so natural that you can’t help but feel that you would have been able to experience it years earlier, if you just paid proper attention.

Experiencing the Fabric of Space, the Akasha, is like that. There is no end to the deepening of your experience of it as your physiology refines on deeper levels of your being. That is true of your experiences of everything, not just the Akasha. Yet finding the words to describe the difference does not seem possible. The words stay the same, they just take on a deeper more significant meaning.

The Akasha is everything. It is everywhere. The quality of the Akasha determines the quality of life. If the air is polluted, the quality of life suffers. The same is true of the Akasha only more so.

Ring a bell and feel the room as the sound gives way to silence. Sit with that feeling of the enlivened silence. That is the feeling of the Akasha. Then the next time you hear the pandits chant, feel into that Akasha. Notice how the space, the Akasha, thrills with the sound. Notice how it awakens and purifies, shines like a glimmering crystal. Notice how it is full, crisp, clear and energized.

Living in such a space is like living in an environment where the air is not polluted, only more so. The benefits over time can not be overstated. Now imagine a world where the Akasha is pure, clean, fresh, awakened, and alive. Vedic technology has the ability to purify the global Akasha. When the akasha is cleared, there is no pollution. When the akasha is cleared, world group consciousness is cleared. Ultimately, world peace and all good things then come to our planet. Group consciousness and the quality of the Akasha go hand in hand.

The Fabric of Space

heartYour world is like a space constructed of fabric. Your behavior affects that fabric and everything that happens within that space. All too often, people relate to others based upon there own inner world with no regard for how they are affecting the space itself.

To really understand how you impact other people, you need to understand how you are impacting that fabric.  Are you tugging at it?  Are you twisting or trying to tear it? Are you being overly attentive and paranoid about it? Or do you have a good, healthy, broad-minded understanding of the dynamic at play in the environment as a whole.

There is a lot of freedom here. You can play with the whole thing in a manner that is consistent with your own nature. It’s merely a matter of simultaneously being respectful of the environment and the people within it.

The Science and Technology of Consciousness

Science and Technology of Consciousness - Michael MamasIf you walk into a church, it feels a certain way.  If you walk into a library it feels different. Same with a bar, a concert hall, an elementary school, etc.  Statistics have scientifically shown that a group of people praying or meditating has a very positive effect on the environment.  These are examples of the science of consciousness.

Imagine a technology that maximizes the positive effect of these phenomenon of consciousness.  Think of the difference between static cling on clothing versus an electrical power plant—both involve electricity but the latter harnesses it as a technology.

The knowledge of the technology of consciousness exists. The fundamental principles are ancient, but the technology has yet to become fully available to us. Mount Soma exists to construct the tools of the technology of consciousness and bring this precious knowledge forth on a Global level.

The potential is enormous!
