…this is not a mere allegory, the characters are not personified qualities, but incarnations or emanations of living and conscious Forces with whom we can enter into concrete touch and they take human bodies in order to help man and show him the way from his mortal state to a divine consciousness and immortal life.
Once more the world was made a wonder-web,
A magic’s process in a magical space,
An unintelligible miracle’s depths
Whose source is lost in the Ineffable.
A Talk at the Sacred Relics Installation at SASP, Lodi (California)
We continue our deliberations on the ways of the Gnostic Being with the help of Their Words as well as living example of Champaklal, who was one of the front runners among the pioneers of the New Race of Gnostic Beings. We also take a few leaves from his diary Notes.
Out of Nature’s body of phenomenon
She carves with Thought’s keen edge in rigid lines,
Like rails for the World-Magician’s power to run,
Her sciences precise and absolute.
A talk by Dr Alok Pandey at a Study Group in Foster City, California, in 2008.
We have been contemplating about the New Humanity. How are we to recognize it? What is the path we need to undertake to arrive at a diviner humanity? The present talk is based on this theme of Oneness which is one of the characteristic sign of the New Humanity.
She spins in stiff but unsubstantial lines
Her gossamer word-webs of abstract thought,
Her segment systems of the Infinite,
Her theodicies and cosmogonic charts
And myths by which she explains the inexplicable.
A talk by Dr Alok Pandey in English in Auroville ( 2007)
We present here some glimpses of Truth to reflect and meditate upon.
A fiery spirit came, next of the three.
A hunchback rider of the red Wild-Ass,
A rash Intelligence leaped down lion-maned
From the great mystic Flame that rings the worlds
And with its dire edge eats at being’s heart.
Nolini da (Shri Nolini Kant Gupta) ranks among the foremost disciples of Sri Aurobindo. He had the rarest of privilege to have been with Sri Aurobindo right from the revolutionary days. We take up one of his essays on the New Humanity, of which he was surely one.
A talk in English at the WAVES Conference, Houston, Texas ( 2006) – Part 2
A dwarf three-bodied trinity was her serf.
First, smallest of the three, but strong of limb,
A low-brow with a square and heavy jowl,
A pigmy Thought needing to live in bounds
For ever stooped to hammer fact and form.
A talk in English at the WAVES Conference, Houston, Texas ( 2006)
What does the future has in store for us? Certain events in our recent times may well indicate to us the working of the New Consciousness and the coming of the New Age. Yet humanity has to cover a large ground before we can be ready for the Promise of the Future. (2014)
The mediating light linked body’s power,
The sleep and dreaming of the tree and plant,
The animal’s vibrant sense, the thought in man,
To the effulgence of a Ray above.
A talk by Dr Alok Pandey at the AUM Conference in USA, recorded in 2006.
