Geometric Keys of Vedic Wisdom

[An excerpt from Chapter One of “Geometric Keys of Vedic Wisdom”, a book by Lori Tompkins which illuminates ancient and modern-day gnosis of the Geometry of Time, and its role in the evolution of consciousness.]

In the early hours of February 7, 2016, I woke up with the above image of the vesica piscis in my head, measures included.… I knew as I woke up that the equivalence between the Sun’s 432,000-mile radius and the 432,000″ arc of the radius was established long ago and that it was a key of recovering…the Vedic Rishis’ sanatana dharma [or eternal law of Being and Becoming]. The next day I remembered that the Rig Veda itself is said to contain 432,000 syllables.

The feeling that came with the 4:32 a.m. vesica piscis vision, was a feeling of victory. It seemed that in and of itself the ancient equivalence between the measure of the vesica piscis and the measure of the Sun was going to help reestablish the singular context of the entirety of India’s deities, myths, rituals, symbols and measures, which have become disconnected and taken out of context in India and across the world via different languages, religious sects, and our fragmented mental consciousness like a widely scattered jigsaw puzzle or a long-drawn-out game of “Telephone” [1]. I felt that the realization of the vesica piscis would shed light not only on the trayi vidya (triadic gnosis) of the ancient Vedic Rishis, but also on the trayi vidya of modern-era Rishis Sri Aurobindo, the Mother and Thea who have recovered the triadic Soul of Vedic Wisdom in our day and age, over the course of the past 144 years [2].

I also had the impression that coming to know and appreciate the vesica piscis as a key of Vedic Gnosis will demand a shift in consciousness, because it is a key that has come forth entirely via supramental means. The process by which this key has revealed itself has demonstrated a certain mathematical precision and supramental control over the unified field of Time and Space. This supramental or divine control is experienced as the orderly, coherent, cohesive and multi-dimensional unfolding of a divine singularity which extends itself into the multitude of details, circumstances and geometry of life. It is experienced as a profound convergence wherein ALL is known to be coinciding. All that was, is and will be is simultaneously experienced as one superconscious or all-conscious field of Being and Becoming. All is experienced as Divine Synchronicity organized by the Soul’s truth, force and consciousness. From the mind’s fragmented point of view, this kind of divine control over the whole of creation does not exist, or it exists only in terms of belief or faith, not as how we see and experience our mundane environment. The supramental yoga of Sri Aurobindo, the Mother and Thea has been a combined effort to open the doors of this higher seeing and experience of our Self. Their triadic yoga has been one extended maha yoga, or great yoga, fulfilling the Vedic mission of restoring the lost Sun or truth-consciousness of the Rishis’ sanatana dharma by which our fragmented consciousness is re-yoked and made whole. Central to this mission has been the reestablishment of the Oneness of Spirit and Matter (the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine) in human consciousness.

In the superconscient truth of the Self-Existence these two [Ishwara-Shakti, the Divine Self and Creator and the Divine Mother and Creatrix of the universe] are fused and implied in each other, one and indistinguishable, but in the spiritual-pragmatic truth of the dynamism of the universe, they emerge and become active; the Divine Mother – Energy as the universal creatrix, Maya, Para-Prakriti, Chit-Shakti, manifests the cosmic Self and Ishwara and her own self-power as a dual principle; it is through her that the Being, the Self, the Ishwara, acts and he does nothing except by her; though his Will is implicit in her, it is she who works out all as the supreme Consciousness-Force who holds all souls and beings within her and as executive Nature; all exists and acts according to Nature, all is the Consciousness-Force manifesting and playing with the Being in millions of forms and movements into which she casts his existence…. If we would realise a higher formation or status of being, then it is still through her, through the Divine Shakti, the Consciousness-Force of the Spirit that it has to be done; our surrender must be to the Divine Being through the Divine Mother: for it is towards or into the supreme Nature that our ascension has to take place and it can only be done by the supramental Shakti taking up our mentality and transforming it into her supramentality. A certain difficulty arises for our mind in reconciling these different faces or fronts of the One Self and Spirit, because we are obliged to use abstract conceptions and defining words and ideas for something that is not abstract, something that is spiritually living and intensely real.

[D]harma, the law is that which holds things together and to which we hold….

Sri Aurobindo, The Secret of the Veda, CWSA, Volume 15, p. 512

There is a mighty law of life, a great principle of human evolution, a body of spiritual knowledge and experience of which India has always been destined to be guardian, exemplar and missionary. This is the sanatana dharma, the eternal religion. Under the stress of alien impacts she has largely lost hold not of the structure of that dharma, but of its living reality. For the religion of India is nothing if it is not lived. It has to be applied not only to life, but to the whole of life…. We believe that it is to make the yoga the ideal of human life that India rises today; by the yoga she will get the strength to realise her freedom, unity and greatness, by the yoga she will keep the strength to preserve it.

This book unfolded as a journey of discovery. I followed the trail of the vesica piscis as it revealed more and more of its hidden and eternal truth to me. The first chapters are an attempt to establish the singular Vedic context, lens or field in which the vesica piscis emerges as a master key. This is the lens or field of the Circle. For the Rishi or Seer, the Circle is the Divine Eye and Kshetra (field) of the One Deva – the God of all Gods. It is the unified field of the Soul’s journey or yajna in Time and Space. After laying down this layer, I then followed the thread of the triple law of the radius, vesica piscis and circle discussing how it applies to the measure of the Kali Yuga and the Maha Yuga cycle. This thread subsequently led to the discovery of how the lore of Vishnu’s ten avatars arise out of the geometry of the vesica piscis. After discussing the lore of Vishnu’s avatars in the light of this discovery, came the full descent of the vesica piscis’s role in the recovery of Vedic Gnosis, which forms Part Two of this book.
