Introduce two remarkable books on the subject of man-woman intimacy, the way it is meant to bring out the best in each other. The relationship of equality fosters the theme of feminine spiritual primacy. Once understood, accepted and nurtured by man, certain aspects of feminine spirituality become indispensable for his inner growth, inspiration and attainment of excellence in his chosen field of endeavor.
"The eternal feminine draws us on." - Faust - Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"More light!" - Goethe's last words!!

The principle of the feminine spiritual primacy, an introduction:

Throughout history, in most cultures, the truth of the preponderance of feminine spirituality has been prevented from rising to the surface. As if that was not enough, most religious institutions and governments persisted in building a male-dominated society in which the women were relegated to the background, where - taken for granted and even ridiculed by most men - they continued to give birth to, nurture and cultivate a family environment without which men would not have been inspired to become the icons they became in the same society. This speaks to the truth of the principle itself, for, barring the odd quirk of nature, each woman embodies the essential elements of the very essence of spirituality, the basis of life itself. An intimate rapport with her vessel called body, modesty and shyness (sometimes not obvious, but always there) are her natural endowments.

Intuitively, most men feel the presence of spiritual energy all around them. They also know that women, by nature, have a deeper connection with it than they do. And they endorse this virtue whole-heartedly. Political, social and economic clouding of the issues notwithstanding, man has always been fascinated and intrigued by woman throughout history. The undefinable "pull" (physical attraction is a very small part of it) atests to this fact. The feminine aspect of spirituality charms men to express their inner virility as their progeny. No matter what tactic or social language man uses to attract a mate, his basic yearning is to be awash in feminine spirituality, which finds expression through his mental faculties, in most cases, conforming to the peer-denominated norms of the particular culture. This fundamental yearning is dressed up with physical and emotional terminology like "I can't exist without you, etc" with which we are all too familiar. This popular ritual aka marriage has been the raison d'etre for most, since day one of human existence on the earth. But for those whom destiny has predisposed for the rarest of miracles, the relationship can also be nurtured entirely on the spiritual plane with a compatible mate. Men have to understand, accept and do most of the mental adjustment here. This path requires special training, perseverence and an irrevocable commitment that may threaten their lives under certain conditions. But the rewards cannot be imagined or described in any language. They can only be experienced. More about that later.

I said 'spiritual primacy.'

The Three Verbs of Being  explores the source of the universal feminine shakti or spiritual energy through his boyhood experiences from different angles.


Outline of The Three Verbs of Being

The setting is the seat of the nostalgic days of the Imperial British Raj, a gem of a Himalayan city called Simla in India. The timing is when the golden era was at its height of pre-war glory. Seen through the ears and eyes of pubescence, the true tale paints events of a period covering thirty-five years but actually spanning two centuries! . . woven into the role of the characters. Not much has been written on the topic of 'clairaudience', a telepathic phenomenon involving sounds. The author has drawn on its mystical power to shed light on the themes of artistic creativity and extrabiological roots . . . a coming of age story binds the sibling topics of reincarnation, self-recognition and the mystery of the union of atma (consciousness) with paramatma (superconsciousness) . . .rich snapshots of family-life . . . the unshakeable nostalgia of the Raj. The British, bewildered by the mysticism of India . . .the Indians, mesmerized by the soft pale beauty . . . master-servant realities get in the way . . .matchless settings for captivating drama . . . metaphysical dilemmas, revelations . . . the quest for the meaning of feminine spirituality and its ultimate triumphant grandeur.

Rashi, a spiritually gifted boy, begins his steam-rail journey and is fascinated with steam engine musicology as its sense-filled rhythms awaken his mind to the mysteries of nature. He takes to the British and a colony of rhesus monkeys around the temple on the Jakhu Mountain, where guru Ram Dave demonstrates his uncanny rapport with the monkeys. Episodes of clairaudience, family secrets and visions of soft beauty haunt him. Extrasensory experiences at the Tara Devi mountain confound him. Searching for his identity, he takes to the female form. . . environment feeds him copious amounts of sensual material. . . begins to understand his biological roots. Adolescence lead him on to a search for his nonbiological blueprint. . . throwbacks and revelations take him to the very source of the feminine energy in the universe.

Anecdotes and travelogues translate the esoteric metaphysical into practical experiences.

Two teachers simplify the philosophy and the 'how-to' instruction for personal growth.

The story of a special bond between the guru and Shona, the wife of a British officer meshes with Ram Dave and the monkeys who transform Shona . . .the mysticism of conjugated Kundalini. . . the ultimate love and bliss.

Shona and Rashi become confidants and RD's pupils. They learn karma, dharma, meditation and the secrets of atma's union with paramatma for liberation from suffering. Together they discover the origin of spirituality. A cobra teaches Rashi a lesson as Margaret's piano-playing leads him to his extrabiological roots in Salzburg while Shona ponders the mystery of clairaudience.

The guru talks about the model of human experiential evolution, Mental, Emotional and Spiritual verbs and the basis of artistic creativity in man.

Shona and Ram Dave pursue a conjugated Kundalini relationship and Shona is shunned by the British. Rashi goes to college. An unusual relationship with Suvi puts him in touch with his emotional self. An affair with Toshi fizzles out but not before Rashi uncovers lactation and the roles played by Mary Jane, Shona, Suvi and Toshi through the three verbs of being. He comes to terms with himself, becoming the man he is, one verb at a time.

Rashi sets sail for Canada.
