CD 7: Tathagata’s Meditation along the Forest Path

In search of love and beauty in a realm outside the senses, Tathagata enters the realm of the poets, musicians and artists. Here the reality is projected from another level of consciousness than the instinct-bound biological needs. In this sphere, where the unconscious mind is deeply entrenched in the conscious sphere, the boundaries between reality, myth and dream obliterate. In this entangled world the real women and men intermingle with nymphs, muses, angels and devils of the mythical world. It is like walking inside a dense forest of the mind without any demarcated trodden paths, where the wanderer evey moment feels a fear of getting lost in unknown directions.  Though he has left the village path, the shadow of the instinctual world still lingers on, and appears as the hunter of the forest, who is still trying to possess the beauty as objects of senses. In this dreamy domain of the mind, where instincts still cast shadows, Tathagata experiences the presence of a treacherous power, which is beyond the grasp of the mind – as if, someone is orchestrating happenings of his life from an invisible realm.
