I have taken the off-world position of reading the Sanskrit texts through the eyes of an ancient astronaut, and interpret them through the filter of the more current science and astrophysics. While simultaneously and conversely, from my understanding of the cosmology and metaphysical wisdom found in the ancient texts, I make a heartfelt effort to weave them into one. I stand in both worlds.
The sages who composed the Rig Veda would not have been fragmented into compartmentalized thinking. They would have been adepts, seers, and masters of both metaphysics and physics. I feel that the Rig Veda will one day be understood as evidence of a far more technologically advanced civilization. India has already been recognized as the guardian of universal metaphysics.
Sanskrit literature does not provide “a single chronological record”
From respected Indian scholars we learn that the Sanskrit literature itself does not provide “a single chronological record” and therefore the dates are subject to controversy. Even the end of the Kali Yuga is disputed, although India does accept 3102 BCE as the beginning of our current Cycle of Time.
For the duration of this Kali Yuga, since 3102 BCE, and very probably throughout the previous cycle of time, The Dvapara Yuga, there has been no awareness that there are over 300+ billion galaxies in this universe. With the exception of gifted Seers who ‘saw’ in visions a myriad of other worlds and described them as hierarchies in primordial metaphysics.
The Birth of Ritual
The controversial scholar, Malati J. Shendge has accurately described the birth of any ritual, yours and mine: “When the events became symbolic and were ascribed magical powers to attain certain aims, the process of mythopoeisation was complete. History was forgotten and dead ritual became the end in itself.”
Like the spider who spins its own web, we live in a sort of self-created gauntlet. However this crazed, boring, and increasingly limited entrapment of ours is not a punishment, but rather a test of our strength and resilience. A better comparison is the legendary Labyrinth. We are amazing supercomputers who have intentionally lost the user’s manual!
The Myriad Worlds
Buddhist cosmology speaks of the existence of the vast number of Myriad Worlds. “These worlds suffuse the ten directions; millions of worlds interpenetrate one another, and each world contains billions of others. Billions more are contained within each atom of each world.” [‘The Treasury of Knowledge, Book One: Myriad Worlds’, Jamgon Kongtrul Lodro Taye, in the Introduction by the translators.]
Awareness of the sheer scope and number of the Myriad Worlds is said to be suitable knowledge for those who have reached a certain spiritual maturity, and who are ready for the higher understanding of a larger system of cosmology.
“As a result, the mind breaks out of the cage of fixed concepts of definite space and existence and enters the open space of myriad worlds without beginning or end…”
Waiting for us to evolve!
The other beings in our galaxy are indeed waiting for us Earthlings to evolve and mature out of our fear of anything and anyone ‘different’ — and expand our consciousness to embrace a much larger view of the universe.
In our solar system there are planets that do not have magnetic fields. It is highly unlikely that our earth-based physics applies to planets that do not have a magnetic field. There must be many other contributing factors we are not aware of involved in a multitude of civilizations in a universe of 300+ billion galaxies. Yet absurdly we continue to define everything in terms of our experience, we are earth-centric, egocentric, heliocentric, humanoid-centric!
Are there now enough of us who are sufficiently spiritually evolved to expand our understanding and embrace the idea that the universe contains Myriad Worlds.
Weaving traditional spiritual wisdom into cosmology
My intention in this series of articles on Colony Earth is to weave traditional spiritual wisdom into and throughout cosmology, for in my view the two cannot be separated. Our goal of Enlightenment and spiritual evolution may be perceived within the revelations presented in an acceptance of the Myriad Worlds. Yes, there are many other beings residing in a vast multiplicity, races, planets, dimensions, advanced technology, and so on. This does not intrude on the fact that our spiritual advancement and self-mastery is the sole purpose and reason we come to this planet, our lovely small blue-green Earth.
In the Tibetan Buddhist view, our part of the universe is known as ‘Endurance’ because here all sentient beings endure emotions and sufferings. Here we learn to patiently “endure hardship with exceptional courage and excel in bravery.” Endurance is contained within one of the spaces of the twenty-five tiered arrangement of world systems and is a third-order thousand worlds system. “This third order thousand world-system of Endurance alone is encircled by buddha realms equal in number to the particles of this thirteenth world system.”
The inhabitants of the Myriad Worlds are what we call the extra-terrestrials, a term that only means beyond earth. As the Tibetan texts have said, “These worlds suffuse the ten directions; millions of worlds interpenetrate one another, and each world contains billions of others. Billions more are contained within each atom of each world.”
As the Tibetan translators have indicated, awareness of the sheer scope and number of the Myriad Worlds is said to be suitable knowledge for those who have reached a certain spiritual maturity, and who are ready for the higher understanding of a vast system of cosmology.
“A scientific world-view which does not profoundly come to terms with the problem of conscious minds can have no serious pretentions to completeness.”
War in the Sanskrit epic, The Mahabharata
It is my considered view that the current Kali Yuga was brought on by a terrible war and this war is the story depicted in the Sanskrit epic, The Mahabharata. The epic poem is actual history and simultaneously an archetypal war intended to teach. The author, Krishna Dvaipayana Vyasa, must have been an amazing genius, a polymath, sage and Seer who had mastered all the Vedas and every aspect of life.
The dates of the Mahabharata War vary from 6000 BCE to 500 BCE. There are numerous descriptions of radiation weapons and aerial ships in the epic Mahabharata.
I assert that during the battles radiation was released around the planet and these invisible plumes of death greatly reduced human intelligence, consciousness, and perception. We lost whatever Siddhic powers we still possessed in the previous cycle of time, the Dvapara Yuga, and became trapped in five-sense perception and could no longer ‘see’ the Myriad Worlds. The vast majority of us no longer have use of the ‘third eye’ that was normal in the previous cycles of time.
Earth is only one of hundreds of colonies. Now is the time for this self-evident truth to be made known, beyond all fear. We are indeed the One. So it is and has always been, now and Forever.
We are the Oneness, Veiled, and we are projecting creating our own temporal illusory holograms in every lifetime. We are not slaves, not victims. We make it all — everything we experience.
Rig Veda Mandala I.164.9 / Earth’s Magnetic Field (my rendering)
The Mother’s sky (her magnetic field and the layers in the atmosphere) was yoked (around the Earth), connecting with and joined.
An enclosure on a spindle (Earth’s magnetic field) stays, charged with bearing ‘the offspring of the sky’ (Earth which) rested within her womb, inside the enclosure, fortified, amongst the folds of the atmosphere (layers).
The dear child (Earth) following alongside the herds of stars in the skies remains beautifully formed, whole within (protected by her magnetic field), in three paths, the courses of traversed distances.
(I suggest that the three paths of planets Earth’s traversed distances are moving though space, encircling the Sun, and rotating on her axis.)
