Genesis – Manduka Mandala – Part 4

There are several important points to note here:

1. We now have an 8×8 cube. This 8×8 cube is called Manduka Mandala. Manduka means frog. The significance of this name of a leaping or jumping creature associated with this Mandala will become clear as you read on.

2. There are 64 modules or padas within the 8×8 cube. Each module/pada within the cube is of equal size and shape. Within each module or sub-cube, the process just described (formation of Time, OM light and OM Sound, Air, Fire, Water etc.) is occurring on a miniscule level and mirroring the original process that we are discussing.

3. As the original micro-cube continues to spin and expand through Space and Time, and as the elements of Air, Fire, and Water and Earth are formed, Space organizes itself in cubes that mirror the original micro cube. These cubes are strung together forming bands around the central point. Remember that the origin of the micro cube was a pulse in Absolute Space. This pulse caused the onset of Absolute Time. Pulses in Time linked together form rhythm; rhythm through space forms frequencies; frequencies form meter or beat; frequencies and meter/beat have a numerical equivalent; the numerical equivalent can be translated into specific qualities based upon the length of the beat and frequency just as the various lengths of strings on a musical instrument produce different qualities of sound when plucked.

4. The individual horizontal and vertical lines contain the potency of primal light and sound in the form of frequency.

5. The frequencies created by the cubes strung together form Space/ Time bands around the central module or “pada” that expand outward as each element is created. These are bands of energy or frequency that have particular attributes based upon the elements that predominate within these bands.

6. The cubical structure of the 64 squares of the Manduka mandala is the graphic and atomic structure of the whole cosmos and is the modified version or representational version of the Pranava Veda. The exact center of the 64 squares is called Moolam or primal dot. The primal dot is square in shape and has within itself the presence of 64 squares and within those 64 squares is another primal dot with 64 innate squares with primal dot ad infinitum. (Dr.S.P. Sabharathnam, p xi, Mayan’s Aintiram)

7. Each module or pada within the 8×8 structure resonates with a specific Space Time, Light, Sound and elemental frequency based upon its position in the Space/ Time continuum. This frequency is called a luminous body or devata. This devata has particular attributes based upon its position and qualities in the Space/Time continuum (placement among the 64 sub-cubes or padas).

While the above are just static images, it is important to remember that this is a very dynamic process. Each of the bands around the central nucleus are vibrating frequencies in constant motion fluctuating and pulsing in a specific rhythm that creates a whole structure that is in constant motion.

This 8×8 Manduka is a vibrant structure of primal Space, Time, Light, Sound, Air, Fire, Water, and Earth. It is the manifested movement of rhythm or frequency over the space of the mandala constituted of 64 squares that gives rise to Form. What we have thus far is the invisible process of manifestation. Now we move to the visible process – while invisible to the naked eye, it is never-the- less the transformational process that leads to the formation of all material objects.

The 8×8 grid – Manduka mandala – is the fabric of the Unmanifest universe.

An interesting point to note is that each string of modules represents a pulse/beat creating rhythm or frequency in the Absolute Space/Time continuum. 8×8 modules= 8 beats. This rhythm or frequency exists in the form of sound and light waves.

The mathematical state of this square is a composition of sixty-four microabodes or grids. The luminous primal ember contained within this square has enormous potency. [Pranave Veda – Verse 3]

Understanding the full scope of the meaning of “Time” is of utmost importance for it reveals the principles at play in the underlying causal force responsible for the genesis of the material world. Time can be viewed as a noun indicating frequency or beat and as a verb transitive indicating a process. We have discussed Time as a frequency; In next part we will discuss Time as a process.
