Nine Qualities of Consciousness

[This article is written for a rational audience. They are not intended to impose, influence or comment on prevailing beliefs.]

All the impressions are drawn from various verses in the Rig Veda. Translations and interpretation are mine.

Nine Qualities of Consciousness

1.       Life

A radiant composer and bearer of knowledge and precious wealth |

Is effortlessly delivered ||

The spirit of creation, invested in the mortal and the imperishable |

Presides over generation ||

Divine the unseen ray; Cognize the bond; May the brilliance arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

2.       Inspiration

Nothing is perceived that heat cannot kill and water cannot save |

Wisdom is a cure for values ||

One life two periods four conducts eight principles of nine parts |

In thousands of expressions ||

Divine these marvels; Cognize the enigma; May the sublime arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

3.       Valour

Natural offerings are acquired by force and shared with pleasure |

By mind’s insecure anarchy || 

Life inspired, life nourished and the life within, starved for peace |

Battle over space and time ||

Divine these customs; Cognize the power; May the restraint arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

4.       Compassion

Ever alert and observing, righteous, resolute, unwavering |

Is the kindness of natural justice || 

Unaffected by joy, sorrow, pain, pleasure, torture or cheer |

Yet involved and not indifferent ||

Divine the awareness; Cognize the speech; May the intellect arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

5.       Counsel

The guiding spirit is the evaluator of metaphysical values |

The critic and the connoisseur ||

The Guru’s wisdom supersedes prevailing societal virtues |

Learning is the radiance of life ||

Divine the sophistication; Cognize the art; May the foresight arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

6.       Relationship

Lifecycles of philosophy, pre-determined or negotiated |

Like waltzing desires of free will ||

Bonds interlaced by feelings and honoured by emotions |

Like chains of interdependence ||

Divine the consanguinity; Cognize the love; May the kinship arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

7.       Order

Uncompromised devotion to character and integrity |

Pledges the commitment ||

Innate and cognate abstracts strengthen sentiments |

And unforgiving violence ||

Divine the cry of despair; Cognize the sabre; May the savior arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

8.       Sanctity

Release life from the fetters and leash of convention |

Rituals are not for rebel ||

Restore the dignity and celebrations of existence |

Let imagination flourish || 

Divine the freedom; Cognize the creation; May the crusader arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||

 

9.       Intuition

Perceptions stretching into unknown dimensions |

Like mesmerized seers ||

Dissolving the lines between illusions and reality |

Promising possibilities ||

Divine the aesthetics; Cognize the singular; May the futurist arise |

In worship of the harmony of that divinity and this consciousness ||
