Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

The Rig Veda [translated by Wendy Doniger]

I do not know how to stretch the thread, nor weave the cloth, nor what they weave as they enter the contest.  Whose son could speak here such words that he would be above and his father below?

He is the one who knows how to stretch the thread and weave the cloth; he will speak the right words.  He who understands this is the guardian of immortality; though he moves below another, he sees him above him.

This is the first priest of the oblation; look at him.  This is the immortal light among mortals.  This is the one who was born and firmly fixed, the immortal growing great in his body.................

Poets seeking in their heart with wisdom found the bond of existence in non existence.
Their cord was extended across.  Was there below?  Was there above?  There were seed placers; there were powers.  There was impulse beneath; there was giving forth above.
He is light firmly fixed for everyone to see, the thought swiftest among all who fly.  All the gods, with one mind and one will, rightly come to the one source of thought
My ears fly open, my eye opens, as does this light that is fixed in my heart.  My mind flies up, straining into the distance.  What shall I say?  What shall I think?
