The many faces of the Divine
first uploaded: 12 March 2024

Because everything is that One, there must be this endless variety in the human approach to its possession; ... the timeless Self, the Self possessing Time, Lord of Nature, creator and continent of the cosmos and immanent in all existences ... this is the truth of being to which man’s knowledge of Nature and cosmos is leading him and which he will reach when his Nature-knowledge unites itself with his God-knowledge.

The Tree of Good and Evil
first uploaded: 7 March 2023

The tree of the knowledge of good and evil with its sweet and bitter fruits is secretly rooted in the very nature of the Inconscience...

[We cannot] deal rightly with others so long as they are to us others.

first uploaded: 16 October 2022

If modern Materialism were simply an unintelligent acquiescence in the material life, the advance might be indefinitely delayed. But since its very soul is the search for Knowledge, it will be unable to cry a halt; as it reaches the barriers of sense-knowledge and of the reasoning from sense-knowledge, its very rush will carry it beyond and the rapidity and sureness with which it has embraced the visible universe ... we may hope to see repeated in the conquest of what lies beyond.

Difficulties on the way
first uploaded: 19 February 2024

[T]]hese powers are not miraculous, but powers of Nature, which manifest of themselves as soon as the vijnanapadma in us begins to open, & are no more a cause for bragging & vanity than the power of eating & breathing or anything else that is Nature’s.

Fate and free-will
first uploaded: 11 February 2022

The gradual self-liberation from bondage to Nature is the true progress of humanity. The inert stone or block is a passive sport of natural laws, God is their Master. Man stands between these two extreme terms and moves upward from one to the other.
