Aurobindo Hypothesis IV
Overmind Poetry = Mystic Poetry
Overmind Poetry cometh
From higher states of Mind
Illumined Mind, Higher Mind
Intuitive Mind and Overmind !
Like Music, which has been divided,
Into Divine Music and Music Mundane,
Musica Divina and Musica Mundana,
Can Poetry be divided as such ?
Yes, and Divine Poetry is Overmind Poetry,
As it is based on Inspiration Divine.
Thoughts emanating from a transcendent level,
Beyond Gross, Subtle and Unmanifest.
Himself an Overmind Poet, Aurobindo revealed,
That he experienced three of Four Faculties,
Of the Intuitive Reason - Revealation, Inspiration,
And Intuition, symbolised as Ila,Saraswati and Sarama.
Mother of the Lunar Dynasty is Ila,
Saraswati is the River of Inspiration,
Flowing from the Truth Consciousness
And Sarama is the Hound of Heaven !
Prasthana Trayee are of Overmind origin,
Geeta, Brahma Sutras and Upanishads,.
Epic Poems of Vyasa and Valmiki,
Narayaneeyam,the Great Savitri et al !
Examples of Overmind Poetry
Lust, greed, anger and avarice,
If renounced, Self discovers " I am He".
The Fool devoid of Self Knowledge,
Finds himself in the abyss of Hell !
Kamam, Krodham, Lobham, Moham
Thyaktva Tranam Pasyathi Soham
Atma Jnana Viheena Mooda
Te Pashyante Naraka Nigooda !
The power of the Unmanifest Lord
Triune, Tri-featured and Eternal
The Generatrix of the Universe is She
Universal Mind, which sprung from the Lord !
Avyaktha namnee paramesha shakti
Anadya Vidya trigunatmika para
Kayanumeya Sudhiyaiva Maya
Yada jagat sarvamidham prasooyathe
We shalt exalt thee with devotion,
O Destroyer of suffering triune.
Physical, mental, emotional
Give us fame immortal.
Sthuvath bhyo bhakthi poorvam thvam
Chandike Vyadhi Nasini
Roopam Dehi Jayam Dehi
Yaso Dehi Dwisho Jahee
Prathar vadami lalithe thava punya nama,
Kameswarethi, Kamalethi Maheswareethi,
Sri Shambhaveethi Jagatham Janani Parethi,
Vag Deva Thethi Vachasa Tripureswareethi.
This Cosmic Beauty's Holy name I chant
Thy Name Divine, holiest of holies
As the Deity of Love, of Vach, of Brains,
And As the Mother of the Universe
Allegorical description Of Vedantic Triad,
Of Relative Being, Jagat, Jiva & Para,
Is that of a cow with three calves -
The cow represents the Universal Mind ( Maya ).
The three calves are
The Relative Universe ( Jagat )
The Relative Ego ( Jiva )
And the Relative Supreme ( Para )
O Thou with and without Thy Maya
Art known as Witness Consciousness
Thy projections Three
Are Thee in Reality !
All the forces of Nature
Dissolved in Thee at Involution
Only Thou existed then
As Supreme Consciousness Bliss !
Maya sannihito pravishta vapusha
Saksheethi geetho bhavan
Bhedestham pratibimbitho vivisivan
Jeevepi naiva para
Kalatma pratibodhita cha vigjata
sanchothita cha swayam
Maya sa khalu bhuddi tatvamasruja
Dyosau Mahan uchyathe.
