Secret Knowledge

Secret Knowledge is a series of meditations on Sri Aurobindo's symbol.

The Play of Duality

Sri Aurobindo's symbol is a world in itself, the more you dwell in it the more it reveals; it is at once a symbol and dynamic power in action. It is not enough that the symbol is intellectually understood, it has to be lived, it has to be brought to one's life and physical movements. This short film is a non verbal meditation upon the symbol of Sri Aurobindo following the trails of iconic language.

The film depicts the play of duality in oneness starting with ascending and descending triangles moving into conics of their play and the birth of earth as wave particle in their intersection in the ocean of nāda rippling out from nādabindu which is also the sun centre. This wave particle and nādabindu are at once yoni circling the lingam and the play of yin and yang of Chinese symbolism. This play in life, the games we play are nothing but cosmic symbols and forces at play. Behind the multitude are the two original principles, the Purusha and Prakriti, Being and Becoming, Awareness and Force, Soul and Nature, Spirit and Matter coming to terms with each other in a perfect union as ardhanārishwara whose heart is the ascending flame calling in the descending powers elaborating into flowering of Sri Chakra in the dance of Nataraja, the lord of dance, leading to the measure of man as seen by Leonardo da Vinci.


The Square

Exploring the links between Square, Light, conversion of energy into mass mediated by light, nādabindu - the source of pulsating ripples in light, the color wheel, Mother's symbol and the emerging lotus of creation.
It is meant only as a meditative journey, each viewer is likely to understand in their own unique way and all meanings are equally good and right for the viewer at that point of time. There is no one right way of understanding this small film.


His birth held up a symbol and a sign

There every thought and feeling is an act,
And every act a symbol and a sign,
And every symbol hides a living power.

A Splendour and a Symbol wrapped the earth

A lamp of symbol lighting hidden truth

... every symbol was a reality
And brought the Presence which had given it life

A symbol of what can never be symbolised

Pursuing her in her fall, implacably sweet,
A face was over her which seemed a youth’s,
Symbol of all the beauty eyes see not,
Crowned as with peacock plumes of gorgeous hue
Framing a sapphire, whose heart-disturbing smile
Insatiably attracted to delight,
Voluptuous to the embraces of her soul.

This short film brilliantly reveals the secret knowledge that comes from above creating pulsating ripples and the lotus blooming from within.

This nice film reveals the knowledge that comes from above and the beginning realisation and wisdom from below.
I regret only that the eye in yin symbol is black instead of a white eye.
