3. Perfect Bliss

The song of breath, the swan song `OM` chanted as `AUM`;

Our connection with universe-to our true self,

 The intonation of `OM` vibrates at the frequency of 432 Hz tuning,

transmits beneficial healing energy,

a pure tone of math fundamental to Nature.

 

The momentary silence between each chant of  `AUM`

as mind moves between sound and silence,

music fills the infinite in between;

the resonance penetrates the core of being

until at last it ceases the sound.

There is no thought.

perfect quietude.

Beyond earth's latitudes and longitudes.

 

Bradley, the English philosopher believes

the realization of the existence of Absolute

an impossible goal for the finite beings;

But Great souls enlightened in their path revealed,

" in life deliverance abides."

 

Nirvana-the heart beat of stillness,

the connection between the center and the circumference,

the noble goal in individual life,

the noble end to an individual life.

 

" whence we come, whither are we bound?"

the interval between the two points- of man's life and death- a search:

on the road of death, life travels soul as the guide to the eternal kingdom,

" A light there is that leads, A power that aids."

 

The American rock band of 90's, chose the name `NIRVANA` for its band.

The reason ?

Kurt Cobain, the singer said:

" I wanted a name that was kind of beautiful or nice and pretty..."

If the mere name appealed beautiful to his spirit, how much more beautiful its meaning could have been!

If only he thought of it !

 

Nirvana the song of the eternal,

of which all things great or small form part

as notes and chords in the great symphony of creation

 and share the beauty of the whole.

 

The experience of pure consciousness- Nirvana in life

penetrates through the center of consciousness

and we emerge on the other side of the consciousness with a new world within;

" we seem to be on the surface of a sphere having all within ourselves and yet to be at each point of it simultaneously." Nothing is outside us.- describes the Dutch philosopher  Van Der Leeuw.

 

Rigveda says:

"who knows for certain? who shall here declare it?

whence was it born, whence came creation?

...None knows whence creation arose.

And whether He has or has not made it,

He who surveys from the lofty skies,

only He knows-or perhaps He knows not."

 

" Stillness soars as a mountain peak

seeking its greatness in height.

Movement stops in a silent lake

seeking in depth its limit."
