blog: Ancient Secret Key: Vedanga, the power of speech

This week’s unedited notes randomly collected, loosely or directly related to this week’s podcast:


temple “Updates&Reflections” tab

remodeling kitchen so no food service at Mt Soma for a while.

Gyan is foundation of success.  


Panini:  one word properly used is enough to accomplish anything

well over 99% of the mass of our solar system is in the sun… Ram… the relative is lightly etched on the face of Being


understanding vs putting in a box…vs:   silence and dynamism together

should children be taught sanskrit?  what that really means can differ greatly

an enlightened individual is like love… incredibly powerful yet profoundly delicate

a gardener nurtures the delicate sprout.  it all eternally remains unfathomable for us all

 veda and relative alike

Saha nav avatu…..

external dynamics of relationship do not define the relationship  

facilitating the blossoming of the Divinity within self and others

vs focusing on a flaw/flaws no

beauty in reaching for Truth through the veil of chitta and vritti [thoughts/whirlpools source, from where one is coming from]

 knowing essence of music, or math, or any field.

the difference between an enlightened person and a god.  house of mud vs house of crystalline glass

pay attention to how you ‘define’ others…  you thoughts and attitudes have tremendous power.

Veda is in the physiology, not the words

‘Know that one thing by which all else is known’

4 abhavas… junction point of relative and absolute.  tangent to a line… smriti

structure of veda

samhita value,,, essential understanding

swaras structure explained, prakritis, paraprakritis, 10 mandalas structure explained

Agni, AK, ‘smaller than the smallest, bigger than the biggest’

Samhita:   like perfect unified team [maybe think like a perfect football team]

getting the point.   ‘am/ma’

through unmanifestation and manifestation, all knowledge is known

Lri seed of manifestation:  seed of material existence

Gyan shakti and Kriya shakti

A I U Ri Lri E O Am

 Rishi, Devata, Chandas

“Pride costs us more than hunger, thirst and cold.”
“You become what you give your attention to”
“To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover that the prisoner was you.”
“The battles that count aren’t the ones for gold medals. The struggles within yourself … that’s where it’s at.”
