India must embody “ShivShakti” right here on Earth — not just on the Moon
It makes sense to name ShivShakti (abbrev. for “Shiva + Shakti”) the landing spot of India’s chandrayaan-3 spacecraft on the moon.
Ardhanarishvara — the integrated (or rather “integral”) form of Shiva and Shakti — perfectly embodies the non-dual consciousness that Indian spiritual traditions are known for.
“Embodied non-dual consciousness” is the bedrock of Tantrism.
“EMBODIED non-dual consciousness” is represented by the number 3 (as in Chandrayaan-3) which “transcends and includes” all dualities (symbolized by number 2)
On the other hand, “TRANSCENDENTAL non-dual consciousness” is represented by the number 1 (Oneness) which transcends all dualities but don’t include them.
Now I am eager to see if India could EMBODY ShivShakti’s non-dual (“integral”) consciousness right here on Earth at 3 levels:
1 — By giving more power to women in India’s patriarchal society — so more women can leverage their Shakti to reinvent India’s economy and politics for the better
2 — By respecting the different religious beliefs of all Indians — as you realize all religions are the diverse expressions of the same Divine Source.
Non-dual consciousness is synonymous with ALL-INCLUSIVENESS.
If you are truly conscious, you won’t exclude anyone merely on the basis of his/her religious affiliation.
3 — By pursuing conscious and sustainable economic development that not only respects but regenerates Prakriti (our Shakti-infused BioSphere aka Mother Earth)
