Shiva Space Technology

The shiva space technology extends far into the mind and towards outer space. Microcosm and macrocosm shed their boundaries on the peripheries and are replaced by a common thread – which is what is all time and space. There is only the presence of Maya or illusion which makes play real, seem real but loses the charm the very moment one looks deeper into either space or self.
Shiva Space technology is our attempt to keep into our memory what our ancestors saw a while back on earth (or maybe somewhere else – in the depths of their dreams of collective consciousness or on another solar system’s planet circling nuclear energy). Shiva space technology is the reason we all pray here to the crystal structure – a rock/ a lingam / a mark of enlightenment if it can be said like that.
I have been fascinated with the mark of God if it can be so said – The lingam is an ancient formation to worship and has been uni dimensionally associated with Shiva and enlightenment, in traditional aspects it represents the mark of consciousness in the void of power. If the universe has been formed via dark energy – then the lingam marks light and conscious behavior of this power – to recognize itself and then dissolve back into the endless ocean of vast energy.
The lingam in this term is the phallus penetrating the void of the Yoni, and this iconography works well with most of the religious-spiritual aspirants, as this is also the conversion of the base sexual energy towards cosmic orgasm. This form of orgasm can be achieved through human contact (Through copulation) but with the intention of achieving a grander scheme to look at life. This indeed is the mark of the lingam through the base of the spine towards the mind.
The lingam is a particular rock – and rock worship is the most ancient form of idol worship available – and why is this? For ancient folks in their wisdom understood that rocks actually collected and stored solar energy (Rocks like silica/quartz etc can do this quite efficiently and are used in our micro transistors as well). This solar energy is light – a mark of consciousness and to worship the same we could pray to something which stored it within its physical body.
This is another explanation and the one which works best with me – for all worship, meditation and prayer is energy movement or stagnation depending on will or intention. The energy movement can be in base domains or towards realizing something outside the egoistic life we all are bound to know and live within. This can happen by natural worship (worshipping natural deities – which are forms of energy with gross vibrations like water, wind, and fire and of course the earth or its extension – ancient rocks). The rocks like spadiga are crystals which have been time forever been worshipped as linga in most Hindu families and are passed on from one generation to another. This makes me wonder whether the Shiva lingam worship had started as a form of rock/stone worship to attain and capture the solar energy of the stone within oneself (indeed this would prove to be the point when folks wear various form of stone necklaces around themselves to get the energy – or even on rings. Various stones like emerald, sapphire etc. cause of their colour frequencies are tuned to a certain form or vibration of the solar energy.
Now I am up for another explanation all together – that the lingam or the mark also resembles the ancient microcosmic sperm or the famous and powerful entheogen called the Psilocybin Mushroom (or the amanita muscaria mushroom), both of which have a stem followed on top by a top – resembling the phallus and of course the sperm head. This structure is pretty common in nature and represents the travelling of the consciousness within the endless boundaries measure of dark energy. This makes sense too as most ancient religions and cultures have ingested this entheogen and have worshipped it for time immemorial. Mushrooms are the most common entheogen which extend across geographies and continents. It is indeed a powerful twisting mind psyche as well. Apart from what they provide as a temporary recreational entity – they create a long lasting almost permanent change in the psyche and self – extending from the spine upwards. This is what experiences have taught myself; the kind of change that one faces now is not just temporary lasting for some number of hours but a permanent ever new expression (this happens only if one pays attention to what one is experiencing and is forced to experience through the ingestion)
Now there comes another idea in my mind – looking and praying to the shiva linga – seems as if our ancient forefathers were looking towards an oracle ball; or a device which could give them answers – answers like the laptop or the IPad does in this day and age. This seems to be another convincing argument for me; to worship it; maybe it was an oracle ball which showed visions when drowned in water and hence the practice of dipping the shiva linga in water – as if the method could invoke a technologically advanced process of able to see the inner sphere.
There is also the simple yet powerful explanation that the linga is a representation of the third eye itself (ajna). This is the pineal gland – which is responsible, as we know it for creating the experiences of day and night. Of sleep and being awake and of course the theta stage. The pineal gland is indeed the doorway to the next world – or the world which we neglect to see from our two waking eyes. It is one which is always awake; in all stages. It is a clock – which counts the number of breaths which we take and when we must enter the void through it. Back to the nascent stage of energy. All enlightened masters – make use of the pineal gland and make it through to their self divinity (stored in the heart). The worship of the linga – it is as if it was the pineal gland, which is the source of all energy and life – consciousness, bathed in water (like shiva is always bathed through ganga). The energy is cooled and refreshed (it exists rather persists in the dark minus Celsius of the universe, and dissipates itself in heat – of the sun and nuclear energy, hence the iconography of shiva being always in cold places and worshipped as the stone phallus?
There are many such thoughts which enter my head when dealing with an abstract method of worship centred on rocks and stones. Most people would see this as primitive but somewhere I feel that we are behind in our experiences, this day to day life which has so confused that we fail to see what our ancestors focused upon was the central truth – that which sets one free while bound to a body and its consequences.
The shiva linga was the technique – it was more than a method – perhaps a device – an experience and an esoteric truth; perhaps it was all that and many other things left unsaid.

Peace and Grace
Om Nama Civaya !

Coastal Bliss @ Antarvedi

The east coast is incredibly beautiful; have never been able to go to the east coast via Andhra – and recently got the most revered opportunity to visit. Went on a 2 day outbound team travel from office (never thought office trips could be so much fun) – for 2 days and a night – spent my time unwinding and in peace and bliss of rural India.
The place is known as Kona seema – on the banks of the majestic and peaceful (only from the exterior) – Godavari River. The exact town is palakol which is near Dindi – the river flows to the Sea here and the region is called Yelamanchalli lanka. We took private buses overnight and started from Hyderabad by night; we reached by early morning and the coastal air was so refreshing (humid mornings broken by the noises of the cock and crows). The place wakes up early – at five in the morning everyone was up, the roads were filled by the local people; the blaring music at the local temple shack was unbeatable. We stopped for a morning tea and then finally deported from the bus. Our hotel / Resort was a little bit interior from the main city road area, the resort has been recently built and I was in touch with all the point of contact for planning the journey for my team. The hotel people along with the travel guide were making all efforts to bring in a good experience for us lazy ass city folks.
We reached for early tea and breakfast (the rest of the buses were left behind as road transport assholes had stopped them on the highway – and they were to catch up later)
We took some time to refresh and were back at the main area of the hotel – which overlooks the river around 100 meters away. It was such a sight to behold – that we all took time and admired the same for a long time. I wanted to leave instantly and go close to the river. But I could not leave my group (the pains of being in a corporate group – especially with older folks). Nothing much to complain though – had good folks for company – they were a bit older and local telugu guys, but had a sense of fun about them through and through (they were of the HR fraternity also!)
We started off and left to go towards the east coast, it was a hour and half drive in mini buses (as the big buses cannot navigate the smaller routes); Almost everyone slept off through the journey; and we opened our eyes to a beautiful small and olden powerful temple. We stopped at the old Lakshmi Narsimha temple; we got off the bus without our shoes and entered the temple and lo – at the very moment there were priests who were exiting with a pot on their head (that was the pot on which meditation was done – the energy of the god being borrowed into it for that special event).
We went around the temple after seeing the main deity and bowing down – it was a very beautiful and small idol (which was the main deity of Lakshmi sitting on Narsimha’s lap). The temple was newly done and it was colored in blatant new age indian religious fervor (something of a trend in south india – to colour the temple sanctum and anything else as if the religious relic was a movie shooting backdrop).
The temple had very old idols, all kept in small rooms for themselves and locked up needless to say; a vaishnava temple with deities – who were avatars of the lord Vishnu adorned the entire place. There was a peaceful resonance in the area – maybe the presence of the endless vast seas so close by made the place even more sacred than humans could perhaps conceive it to be.
We made our obeisances, and moved ahead and sat back and soon we saw the beach at a distance – what a view. Something out of the world. I had been tormented for the past 2 years to come to the east coast and finally the wish granted! I was overjoyed, with a sense of relief and wonder renewed. The only problem being that there were many others who were with me – almost a group of 100 odd folks who were to follow our bus soon and come to the beach for a day of fun and so called frolic. The party was set up and beach games designed to keep the crowd engaged and this is where I felt I needed to escape asap. One of my senior colleagues present asked me if I wanted to see where the river met the sea, and this was the escape I so desired. The east coast beach at Antarvedi is unique – as the mighty and calm Godavari river joined here a kilometre or so away. We walked in silence and checking the beach sand (The sand was extremely black and fine at some parts – the whole setup was virgin to my amazement – no crowded public, no vendors to remove the peace – just joyous silence and the beach wind and water striking the ground and our ears! Heaven on earth indeed).
We walked and at the end of the beach in one direction – we found the beautiful Godavari meeting calmly the sea, here the water pushed back to the coast – and it was amazing to see that two confronting tides worked at this end and merged (This place was called Vashishta Sagar – a holy place for the local folks). We spent time and I collected myriad sea shells and beautiful rocks of value to me and finally we walked back to where our company folks (who by now had joined us) were playing and making a helluva lot of noise. That is something I cannot stand, and so with some other friends of the fraternity – I quietly sat back and made the best of my journey. After a lunch at the beach which was local dishes – we quietly sneaked off from the group and headed back to get some rest. The evening was a lot better – with some sleep on the side – we moved to the pool and got our drinks on the go and the next 4 hours we quietly and peacefully swam (This was something I had not done for a very long time) – I put my head back and looked at the stars above and with the serenity of the Godavari nearby; I was made!
The next morning post breakfast we took a small boat ride to a close by uninhabited island, where the rest of the group played games and I and my fraternity were left behind to explore – I headed to the edges of the island and took some quiet peace in and took photographs to remember the virgin beauty of coastal backdrop into my heart and digital memories.
Spent the whole day on the island and then left as peacefully as we came and rested and left in the evening back to the hustle and crap of the city.
The journey made me reinvigorated with life. A break from the day to day mundane is what we all require once a while – and I got to enjoy this thanks to an organization imperative. Something which I thought would never occur. East coast of India is a little less well known to tourists than the west, and cause of this the beauty is even better preserved – crystallized if that could be a word in context..
Urge everyone to go towards east coast of India – a paradise untouched and spend some time with nature (the time I spent – I felt it was pitiful), a week or a month traveling across virgin beaches should renew everyone’s love and faith to a goddess which is nature and life.
Love and Peace!

Ode to Humanity

I am not a big fan of human kind, the version of life that in today’s day seems to be only focused upon itself. The day’s pass and humans ...
