Subject: The Mother & UG Date: Sat, 5 May 2007 07:43:48 -0700 (PDT)
Read the text published in your blog. I thought you could have also used UG's description of his 'Calamity'/biological changes, or at least provided the link to UG website. However, the parallels/similarities of certain physical changes that both UG and the Mother underwent, and the 'words' they used to describe the change, especially what they both say about the 'body' ( it's so simple; the body knows etc) and about enlightenement (salvation is physical; enlightenment is biological' and so on) continues to surprise me and encourage me to suggest that this subject needs to be explored with all the seriousness it deserves.
Presently i'm reading Lyall Watsons: SUPRNATURE, BEYOND SUPERNATURE & THE ROMEO ERROR. would you be surprised when Watson calls enlightenment is biological (Enlightenment as a biological process-chapter 5-The romeo error(1974)) and in the other two books talks about the biological basis/roots of experiences, memory/mind and so on. best wishes, mukunda rao.
Thanks for sending the link. With reference to Satprem's book I have discussed what happened to the Mother. I have used her own description of the bodily changes she underwent to discuss the 'biological mutation' that enlightenment traditions have probably tried to express yet not have been able to articulate fully. The Mother's assertion that 'salvation is physical' is something we need to consider seriously and reflect upon it. I think we need to revisit 'The mind of the cells' with a fresh mind.
I don't think Aju has read UG; maybe he should give it a try before passing comments. However, the more important question is: can we approach/re-examine the 'enlightenment tradition' from the multiple perspectives available to us today.
Finally, like politicians belonging to a party, the SAGES don't join hands and dance together saying we are all one, and so on; they just speak of what they have found, seen. It's our burden to try and understand them; but it's not necessary to integrate them all into a single narrative. Perhaps it's enough to be deeply interested in one and work out one's life. Each one according to his/her need! Thanks again. Will communicate when there's something... best wishes, mukunda rao. date 22-Jun-2007 22:48
