Re: [anthroposophy] Swan
- Dear Friends,
More on the Swan as the Aum, taken from:
The Voice of the Silence by H. P. Blavatsky
I found this interesting, that the parts of the bird were "parts" of the
AUM. I wondered if this was pictured in meditation?:
"). Kala Hamsa, the "Bird" or Swan (Vide No. 11). Says the Nada-Bindu
Upanishad (Rig Veda) translated by the Kumbakonam Theos. Society -- "The
syllable A is considered to be its (the bird Hamsa's) right wing, u, its
left, M, its tail, and the Ardha-matra (half metre) is said to be its
"). Some Sanskrit mystics locate seven planes of being, the seven
spiritual lokas or worlds within the body of Kala Hamsa, the Swan out of
Time and Space, convertible into the Swan in Time, when it becomes
Brahma instead of Brahma (neuter).
, "A Yogi who bestrides the Hamsa [Swan] (thus contemplates on Aum) is
not affected by Karmic influences or crores of sins."
