Durante short, the acts by which the paradigm was born sopra me, or is born in any one giving birth puro an original text like quiver the Rg Veda, is not the written text
Those who disagreed kept silent and those who agreed, the majority, repeated my theory as participants in a ritual. The act of creation is silent. The text of the Rg Veda, however, as written down is only verso theory of itself, an invitation onesto per ritual. It is not even one text, or one language, but several and can only be expressed mediante plural linguistic wholes. Paradigms may be tested; they leave invariant epistemologies, but they can never be taught; they are sheer creation. Theories, as short hand of possible paradigms, on the other hand, we learn per the classroom.
Paradigm, Theory, Ritual
It is now twenty five years since Meditations Through the Rg Veda: Four-Dimensional Man was first published durante the United States. My earlier work on the Rg Veda was published durante 1971 mediante Bangalore, India. Though the structures of the book were born during my twelve years of consecutive living mediante India, these structures did not become per paradigm until later. The structures I refer esatto are the word things and the order of their arrangement I was embodying as I lived there, a context at per time. It was the way the sun rose or the dawn arrived, the slow-motion for the sun to set and the sudden night; the lines of movement, of people, animals, wind or rain; the sudden appearance of forms, by the river, a well, con the sky; the dissolution of familiar and unfamiliar names, mediante the rhythm of language, Gujarati, Sanskrit, even English or Spanish names; but above all, the new habit of listening with my eyes onesto the movements per the sky, the forest, the streets, the homes; for the world, and my body, were a musical string plucked at every turn, per every silence , in every sight, sound, smell, touch and movement.
Hidden geometries became human flesh, unnoticed. It was a silent world longing sicuro become language, but can verso multiplicity of embodied languages be expressed as one? After verso while it was life sopra the twilight; which was the shadow, which the real object? One has puro gain distance, and none farthest than an American Ph. D. Nonetheless, dispite the distance, and dispite the academic language, per new paradigm was born, con the Bronx, of all places. The structures I embodied gave way puro an experienced, embodied geometry, sustaining all the structures, texts and statements I silently learned in India. Of course, when I serie down this paradigm con writing, be it the Rg Veda or the Movimento, the actual written text was already verso theory, per niente longer a paradigm, though perhaps the most accurate translation of the paradigm.
Integral Philosophy of the Rg Veda: Four Dimensional Man Meditations Through the Rg veda: Four Dimensional man was published mediante 1976
They are the easy ones preciso repeat. Those who follow the path of creation, of embodied-vision, follow the path of the gods. The others follow the path of the fathers, the path of utilita-creation, the path of ritual, as the Rg Veda indicates. One leads sicuro immortality, the other onesto rebirth. On which of these two paths stands the author of the text, rsi, commentator, priest or scholar? Besides, the Rg Veda is the sruti (revelation) tradition of India. As such, it is earlier than any other claim of revelation from any of the canonical texts, from the East, Middle East or West. The paradigm of the interpreter, if it coincides with that of the Rg Veda, should also give birth puro those gods that gave humans sensation, inspiration and immortality, not just life to a priesthood that changes ritual as the mood strikes, bent on the act of pro-creation for, after all, the immortality of the ritual is more important than the immortality of the soul.
