Festival of Life & Democracy

Nowadays, both the Festival of Life (a period of spiritual introspection for Sikhs), usually celebrated around the 13th April, and Democracy, are a catastrophe crammed into ubiquitous kitsch-deluded masculine grandiosity, positioning so-called virtue. However, both fall well shy of their own original and exacting standards.

Vasaakh:

Is a period within the cycle of a season of a hemisphere. It is the second month of the traditional earth calendar in the northern hemisphere. The first month began around the 12th /13th of March. Traditionally, there were 13 months in one year cycle, where some months had 32 days, and others less than 28 days. These months approximately correspond to what is now known as the astrological calendar. Indeed the astrological calendar also had 13 divisions, of which one was particularly short in duration.

Vasaakh represents the regeneration of the northern hemisphere, as it emerges from its winter hibernation into new life. It indicates the same, at a different point in the calendar, in the southern hemisphere. Vasaakh happens twice on our planet. Once in the northern, and then in the southern, hemisphere.

For Sikhs of the northern hemisphere, Vasaakh at a very rudimentary level refers to introspection, awakening, deeper consciousness, and overall spiritual repose, lived within full secular responsibility. For Sikhs of the southern hemisphere experience this psychic-spiritual sensation, and inner introspective regeneration, the festival of Vasaakh has to take place at the appropriate point in the seasonal cycle. Regeneration on the cusp of autumn/winter would be nonsensical, obviously.

Given the epithet of soldier-saint, circulating since the time of Guru Arjandevji, it is fitting that Vasaakh should also represent a moment of reaffirmation of our secular responsibilities (as much as of spiritual regeneration). In this regard, we pledge anew to be conscientious, trustworthy, reliable, dependable, and accountable through the five Ks; to protect lives, even those of enemies (and especially at the first time of engagement), and including those of every species occupying our own geographical zone (without becoming pedantic about the unseen life form).

Vasaakh is the second month of the Arya calendar. Remember, Sikhs, when they occupied Europe and especially the northern countries of Europe were then also known as Sikhs, Arya and Khalsa (Khalsa is another very ancient name, which at that time meant merging into the One. It retains the same meaning today but is usually confused with a word derived from the Aryan-influenced region north of Persia).

However, for a Sikh who advances and exalts into the Khalsa, the responsibility is even more exhaustive, meticulous, comprehensive, thorough, detailed, and exacting.

For me, at my own personal level, my white turban including the Five K’s represents that I am duty bound to protect the right of my enemy to take my life.

However, as a Khalsa, protection of life is my basic fundamental duty.

Therefore, while my enemy may want to take my life, protecting my own life takes priority for me as well as safeguarding his life. If he persists, then I must (without flinching) put him to rest, and say a prayer prior throughout. And I must bear no hatred towards him or his community for his actions against me. In fact, I must locate his immediate family and offer my on going assistance for the vacuum left by the slain.

As you can see, being a practicing Sikh, and then evolving into the fully fledged Khalsa is not as easy as many Sikhs seem to think. Simply being born into a Sikh family does not mean that you are a Sikh. The fundamental requirements of being a Sikh are a tad difficult; and elevation into Khalsa is well nigh impossible.

The most telling point of Vasaakhi is that Life has to be celebrated. A celebration steeped not in wanton drunkenness or salacious behaviour, but characterized by an inner audit of the preceding year and setting parameters for the coming year. The idea is to protect Life, thus allowing Life to give life to Life.

Hence, Vasaakh, the second month of the earth (northern hemisphere) calendar is the Festival of Life.

Democracy:

Is control and governance of an organisation or country by the majority of its eligible members.

The original idea was to put aside quarrels that escalated from verbal abuse to physical violence, armed attack, ultimately to death. Thus, wise men (no, not women; remember, women were/are inferior and unclean due to their menstruation) devised a holistic means to conduct their tribal clan’s mechanization. This included the involvement of the soothsayers, medicine person (they were both female and male), and then the formal ritual brigade, some of whom evolved into formal religious heads. Religious heads, ritually excellent, and had an intricate understanding of ancient medicine and alchemy, in tandem with psychic ability: this then allowed them hands-on responsibility and a veto in debates about communal care.

Over the past fifty years, political communities in certain cultures have distanced the influence of the religious order, and endeavoured instead to promote an isolationist-secular schema.

Nevertheless, the voting minority still suffers. Seldom was/is a single item of their need addressed. Promises and pledges are seldom kept by those in power.

We have a prime example of the role and fallout of pledges in the blatant lies peddled by politicians in the run-up to Brexit in the United Kingdom. The liars, far from being criminally charged, went on to hold high office, as in the case of Boris Johnson, the British Foreign Secretary.

Interestingly, if a man leads a group of women along a romantic path, while securing large sums of money from them, he is criminally charged. Yet we, the cattle-voting-class, are repeatedly told that politicians cannot be hauled into a criminal court, since they only offered pledges.

Such pledges, to revert again to Brexit in the United Kingdom, included the insistence – nay, assurance – that the monies saved from not being part of Europe would help turn around the failing National Health Service. But neither Boris Jonhson nor Nigel Farage (then leader of UKIP) can be prosecuted for their ‘pledges’ on the matter, because these have since been defended merely as suggestions and not promises to the electorate they deliberately misled.

This, guys, is democracy.

A con-artist who makes pledges to several women, only for the latter to find out they’ve been duped, would feel the full wrath of the law. But in democracy, liars (read: politicians) actually benefit from their lies, amassing financial and political advantage.

Many an English politician is therefore a criminal, as well as a recipient of bribes who then takes full advantage of his political position… as is the standard charge leveled at the average Indian politician. The difference is that in the English political system you ‘donate’ officially in order to buy your MPs support and protection; whereas in the Indian political system the donation is unrecorded. But the same bribery takes place across both systems.

This is democracy.

One example is from the mother of Parliamentary democracy and the other is from the world’s largest democracy.

So, is there a better system?

Yes indeed. And, no, it is not proportional representation.

The first cast-iron surety we need to put in place is that elected officials who lie during election are to be dismissed from office, criminally charged, and their ill-gotten gains confiscated.

Then, to equally reflect the minority racial or a religious group, a consensus of the population establishes in order to attributes a ratio to each voting group. This means that the minority under the ratio formula will have exactly the same power to their vote as the majority. Thus, now we have governance with consent rather than governance of the numerical votes cast. Numerically, the majority will still cast the larger share of the votes cast; however, due to the ratio formula, the minority voter will have an equal say in the actual outcome and politics.

The ratio formula outstrips the dated, inflexible, and unaccountable voting system termed democracy, and the new outcome would in its truer sense be democracy in earnest.

This system would have enormous positive impact globally, especially in many artificially-constructed countries by the Europeans, as in the case of the Ottoman Empire, in Africa, and across each and every country/landmass that came under the race-European empire.

Yes, it is up to us, the voiceless cattle-class-voter, to demand the fairer ratio vote.

And at this junction, just past, namely that of the spring equinox, in alignment with Vasaakh and the ‘Festival of Life’ that is Vasaakhi, why not push for and establish this fair voting system?

Meditation within: Mechanical Time, Organic Time & Timelessness (German Time Vs Brexit Time)

European concept of time:

On 31st December 1899, a second was determined to be 1/31, 556,952.9747th of a mean solar day. In 1955, the second was re-calculated, using the caesium beam atomic clock, as 1/86,400th of a mean solar day. The present European concept of time was set then, in 1955. The quantum clock led to the femtosecond which is to a second what a second is to 31.71 million years, and to an attosecond, which is to a second what a second is to 31.71 billion years. That clock was superseded in 2015 by an optical lattice clock.

However, earth’s rotation, in conjunction with the galaxy and the universe, is irregular and slowing down, and the mechanical clock is utterly dysfunctional with and irrelevant to bio-organic time phase.

Arya concept of time:

Yuga:-

There are four yugas – Satya, Treta, Dvapara, and Kali. These each have a pre-determined duration lasting millions of years, and they follow each other cyclically. A cycle comprising the four yugas is known as a maha-yuga. Within this is the life span of the earthlings, demi-gods (please check wikipedia for a list of Arya and Greek demi-gods), and gods (Brahma etc).

Satya yuga – 1,728,000 years – golden age

Trata yuga – 1,296,000 years – silver age

Dvapara yuga – 0,864,000 years – bronze age

Kali yuga – 0,432,000 years – iron age

1 Maha yuga – 4,320,000 years

 

The Maha yuga is cyclical in both descending and ascending phase.

 

71 Maha yuga = 1 Manvantara (destruction and then recreation)

1000 Maha yuga = 1 kalpa (night of Brahma)

1000 Maha yuga = 1 Kalpa (day of Brahma)

1 day of demi gods = 360 earth days

 

Demi-Gods live for 100 years of their time scale, and are offspring of gods and humans.

Brahma lives for 100 years of its time scale, dies, after which a new Brahma evolves.

(It should to be noted that the Arya resuscitated the existence of the decimal point and the zero, without which astronomical calculations were impossible. They also re-established negative indices and algebraic rules).

Similar to modern timescales the Arya had a name for sub-atomic units of time and based their calculations on that understanding, called paramanu, where:

2 Paramanus = 1 Anu

3 Anu = 1 Trasarenu

3 Trasarenus = 1 Truti

100 Trutis = 1 Vedha

3 Vedha = 1 Lava

3 Lavas = 1 Nimesha (the twinkling of an eye)

3 Nimesha = 1 Ksana (moment)

5 Ksana = 1 Kastha

15 Kastha = 1 Laghu

15 Laghus = 1 Nadika

2 Nadika = 1 Muhurta

6 or 7 Nadika (depending on length or day or night) = 1 Prahara (1/4 of a day or night)

1 Day = 4 Yamas (6 hour period)

15 Days = 1 Fortnight (alternating between bright and dark period)

2 Months = 1 Ritu

6 Months = 1 Ayana (southerly & northern)

2 Ayanas = 1 day/night of demi-gods

 

Arya micro-timescale against modern time scale, is as follows:

1 paramanu = 60750th of a second

1 truti = 29.6296 microseconds

1 tatpara = 2.96296 milliseconds

1 nimesha = 88.889 milliseconds

45 nimesha (1 prana) = 4 seconds

6 prana (1 vinadi) = 24 seconds

60 vinadis (1 nadi) = 24 minutes

60 nadis (1 ahoratra) = 1 day

According to Arya sun time:

100 truti (atom) = 1 tatpara

30 tatpara = 1 nimesha (twinkling)

18 nimesha = 1 kashtha (bit)

30 kashtha = 1 kala (minute)

30 kala = 1 ghatika (1/2 hour)

2 ghatika = 1 muhurta (hour)

30 muhurta = 1 ahoratra (day)

 

Arya astronomical texts are divided time into two categories:

Murttakalah – manifest time or organic time

Amurtakalah – unmanifested time or mechanical time

 

Arya astronomer Varaha Mihira divided a day/night into 24 Horas (Greek ‘Ora’; Latin ‘Hora’; English ‘Hour’). From this is derived the 24 hour system. This was a change from earlier Arya astronomers divisions of day/night into 60 ghatikas.

The moon was used as the basis for the calculation of the fortnight and the month. The solar month entered calculations much later.

 

Samvatsara cycle:

Means a year. 60 samvatsara rotate in cyclical order, divided into three sections of 20 samvatsaras each. The 1st is Brahma, the 2nd is Vishnu, and the 3rd is Shiva.

 

All of this only comes into its own when we begin to rationalise the puzzle of incidents written in the Arya classics of Ramayan (life exploits of Lord Rama) and the Mahabharata (life exploits of Lord Krishna) into our current timescale. Lord Krishna’s time can be placed 70-100 millions years ago. Lord Rama’s period goes further back, aligning with the destruction of the planet which now litters (the asteroid belt) the space between Mars and Jupiter. It was during this time that Earth’s original moon was destroyed, and to stabilize our portion of the solar system an artificial moon was ‘brought’, manoeuvered, and set into motion around Earth. It is this ‘moon’ we see in the sky. It has secrets, slowly unravelling as humanity comes to terms with esoteric phenomena, albeit it has a sub-strata of three-dimensional Beings living there also – a technical civilisation vastly advanced than our own.

During a recent inter-galactic war, Mars had its protective atmospheric zone vaporized. Granted, it was badly depleted by the un-repentant extraction of its mineral and natural resources by humans, as currently happening here on earth. Also worth noting in addition is that Mars had a full set of oceans, lakes, rivers and fresh water; Earth in reality was a second, substitute home, and furthermore, up to that point ‘earthlings’ also resided on one other sphere within this solar system.

This latest inter-galactic war was a very recent event in the scheme of things. It remains fresh in the unconscious psyche of all non race-Europeans. It is this awareness that my seniors are very mindful of. However, a lower order shared with the Europeans the art of gunpowder, and weapons that could be used for destructive means. Later, a similar lower order gave details of projectiles, and their powering mechanisms to the German Max Muller when he visited old India. Thankfully, European mind thus far has only understood the very basic elements of the powering mechanism. This in-depth critical information was used to develop the V2 rocket by the Germans, a weapon of war during the European war (1938-1945), and is the bedrock of current space travel, of which the cruise missile is the latest ‘avatar’.

A short while back, another lower order was advising a European power on the development of a mechanism, with fuel system, and fundamental stablising factors, that would make the atomic weapon a redundant system; and that would allow travel to the nearest star system in about a couple of hours. The higher order, and I as one who had earned access to the debate, spoke out vehemently against sharing any further information with race-Europeans as they would only use it to subjugate other races; and far worse, they would start a fight with other Beings in our solar system and beyond, resulting in a war that would seal the final destruction of Earth. The exchange of information was duly stopped, and an agreement reached between Chen (Zen) and Indian mystics to stop all such exchanges until humanity has sufficiently evolved to a point where each human cares for their fellow human, the planet, and its resources and other dwellers.

Current technology is so utterly backwards that it can be classified as ‘primate weaponry’. Technically bereft, the current thinking (aka European consciousness) is limited to mechanical thinking. Asian thinking by comparison automatically includes the psychic dimension. Aboriginal thinking is pure and sublime, and is the only thought paradigm that has the capacity to fathom creation and its layered dimensional presence. Indian thought paradigm understands the concept of creation based on the organic timescale, but does not hold the key to unravelling its secrets.

The (Indian) organic timescale differs hugely from the European mechanical system. The contradictory mathematics and rules of physics have to be understood at a psychic level, and that is where meditation comes into its own. Meditation, where thought is held in poise, has to become the normal function; and it is only then that complex, hitherto incomprehensible, maths and laws of physics will allow further venture into creation. At the current juncture, humans can only travel a universe as a concept of an analytical thought-sphere, and even then mechanical technology, with Indian assistance and leadership, will limit travel along a single plane trajectory. It is only when humans appreciate the excellence of African, and thereafter Aboriginal, thinking that they will appreciate multi-layered dimensional life form and existence.

Yet, this very reality can also be experienced by merging into permanent meditation, which allows entry into samadhi. It is samadhi that is the opening portal, facilitating factual recognition of the multi-dimensional cosmos.

It is there that humans will engage with demi-gods, and gods…on a permanent basis.

Reverting…

The English copied the German (1938-1945) practice of beginning a day at midnight for purposes of industrial manufacture. Thus began the idiotic ‘day begins at midnight’ nonsense. It has remained in force ever since.

Now that England has exercised Brexit will it, I wonder, drop the German clock time, or retain the German war-time timescale?

Oh, the luxurious stupidity of ignorance…

Interestingly, it was I who re-introduced the phrase ‘ignorance is bliss’, which was then used in the first part of The Matrix film trilogy. This came about because His Holiness in whose tutelage I was placed during my early teens had input into the making of The Matrix. We were watching the much-flaunted modern Bollywood version of the Mahabharata televised on BBC. We looked at each other and felt utter shame at the amateur depiction and rendition of the Indian classic. Interestingly, several of my tongue-in-cheek quotes had already been used regularly in Bollywood by this time. This happened because His Holiness has direct access to directors and actors from Bollywood. Thereafter, his access to Hollywood directors and actors and the making of The Matrix was a foregone conclusion. The Matrix is our rendition of Mahabharata, and its dialogue of how we explain the esoteric in common parlance.

Reverting…

During samadhi, time changes. It is an event-based system, and time has no meaning there per se. As an event-based system, samadhi doesn’t measure the passing of time. Here on Earth, although time sequence is organic, it is circumstantial. This means you can suffer, remain unaffected, or benefit from a situation. By contrast, in samadhi, events take shape and dissolve, but your circumstances remain unaffected. This is because mechanical time becomes dysfunctional and irrelevant. In samadhi, events surpass 360 degrees… a concept humans understand. 360 degrees is a three-dimensional concept, and limits our understanding of how space obscures, or indeed becomes an obstacle, unless one is advanced in samadhi; and only then it is possible to appreciate the limitation of 360 degree conceptual existence.

For example, space as you see and experience it is the very veil that obscures or hides advanced existence. During meditation, and with guidance on how to remain in samadhi, the space-veil disintegrates, or opens up, allowing experience of multi-dimensional existence. The human brain is incapable of fathoming this reality. After all, death experience is not brain-based; that experience is beyond thought-limitations also. Samadhi is not brain or thought based. One has to accept that several bodies co-exist and surround the physical entity. It is one of them that allows consciousness to experience advanced layers of existence.

It is in that advanced state that one meets demi-gods and then gods. Beyond that state lies a platform, an accepted state that is the domain of an Earth personality named Guru Nanakdevji, who re-established Sikhism…for the umpteenth time. It is Guru Nanakdevji who categorically states in his writing in Guru Granthsahibji that Akaal is an environment contained within yet another environment. Human three-dimensional consciousnesses is unable to understand that reality.

Note: I know this only because under tutelage I attained the pedestal of grace. It is that grace which allows me access to and understanding of certain matters. It is a privilege. And I am the first to say that I do not accept that I have the right to experience the higher states by my own volition. That environment is utterly complex, contradictory, and confusing. It is where, unless guided, one falls victim to the advanced ‘divine’ lure of the limited existence (that’s the devil).

And each of you who think that as a Sikh you need no one to teach, guide and show you the passage and its pitfalls, are ignorant and peddling utter nonsense. My dear Sikhs, advanced awakening is not the same as self-teaching masturbation. This is a very serious awakening and can only be accessed through humble service by not expecting anything in return. The person you are in servitude to is a person who is ultimate in experience and has personal accreditation to enter advanced states.

You must remain humble. If the person to whom you are attached is of a lower order do not fret; as your servitude and humbleness are recognised. Eventually, a guide, a mentor, a sublime light-Being will be assigned to you. That person will find you. An automatic, seamless relationship will evolve. However, that person will have to decide if he is willing to make you his ‘ang’. Ang means one’s own. One’s person. One’s self with itself. Where two become one. For reasons I have never fathomed, I attained that privilege. And it is that privilege that I function through, deciphering facts from assumptions.

For example, commentators regale how the gods are human in form and attitude, and their progeny even more so. In my autobiography, now in the process of coming into publication, I explain how and why that is not the case.

I will leave you with this thought. Look into the night sky. You see a lot of space. In advanced samadhi this very sector of our galaxy is empty space. We do not exist. Now conjecture and contemplate as you look at the night sky, and you see space.
