Racial Purity

In the latest New Scientist: A long-awaited rough draft of the Neanderthal genome has proved what was long-suspected: Homo sapiens interbred with Neanderthals. Our own DNA contains clear evidence of this. The genome of humans today is roughly 1-4% Neanderthal, a species not generally considered "human". This holds true for all non-Africans. It turns out that Africans are actually pure homo sapiens.
White supremacists should rethink their ideas about Africans being less "human" or less "racially pure" than themselves. More likely they will attempt to reinvent Neanderthals as some kind of superior species, despite the fact that they went out of evolution.

Inhere as the Self

"Therefore become dispassionate
and inhere as the Self.
Such inherence is spontaneous and effortless.
It is realised after thoughts are eliminated
and investigation ceases.
Return to your state after you break off from it,
and then you will know all,
and the significance of its being knowable
and unknowable at the same time.
Thus realising the unknowable,
one abides in immortality
for ever and ever.

-Tripura Rahasa, (The Mystery Beyond the Three States of Consciousness,
or The Secret of the Supreme Goddess)

40th Sahasrara Day

The Celestial Rose, Illustration to Dante's Paradiso

Today is the 40th anniversary of the opening of the Sahasrara Chakra of the Virata, by Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi.

"(Sanskrit: सहस्रार, Sahasrāra) is the seventh primary chakra according to Hindu tradition. Often referred as thousand-petaled lotus, it is said to be the most subtle chakra in the system, relating to pure consciousness, and it is from this chakra that all the other chakras emanate. When a yogi is able to raise his or her kundalini, energy of consciousness, up to this point, the state of Samādhi, or union with God is attained."
