- Have you ever studied the Samkhya philosophy of India? It's the
oldest extant system of intellectual development in the Indian
spiritual tradition. It forms the ground of my development, pre-
Steiner, and resolves any discord between male-female equanimity and
And gives the rationale for the Law of Three in One. As such Purusha-
Prakriti represent the One (male-female) creative-generative
principle, while the three gunas (rajas, sattva, tamas) represent the
three force principles active in any manifestation.
So, until I met you, this feminine-masculine dichotomy was never an
issue due to this grounding in Samkhya. Suffice to say that all
paths lead to the ahamkara as the inner organ of thought with ties to
the linga sharira. And when we press the ahamkara in its inward
dimension, we also press the linga sharira for the greater sense of
our past lives as a matter of recollection. And this yields the
anandamayakosha, first sought for by Gilgamish when he went searching
up in the Burgenland.
Now, what's way up with Lazarus is that he was resurrected in his
physical body, which Gilgamish couldn't do for his buddy, Eabani;
although Eabani lived within as well. Lazarus' resurrection gave the
vehicle for John to do likewise.
