    The Dynamic Duo that is you all!

    Here I will have some fun with the similar sounds of the crimefighters names: "Batman and Robin" and the 2 aspects of the soul "Atman and Jiva." In addition I will share my idea of what the Falcon and Serpent on the Chemetan (Egyptian) headdress represent in terms of Kundalini or Tantric Yoga.

    The "third eye chakra," related to the Pituitary gland, is said to have 2 Sanskrit letters "Ha" and "Ksha." Ha represents breath, and Ksha is Ka the last vowel from the throat combined with Sha the very first petal or letter of the root chakra. In that third eye chakra is said to be the dual awareness of being spirit, breath, "Ha," the Bird, and the "loop of the body," "Ksha."

    In Hindu (East Indian) Kundalini or Tantric Yoga the highest awareness level that a person can achieve is said to be Atman. The next highest awareness is Brahman or the all-pervading creative source. If we look at it the other way, coming down that is, there is the allness, and it reduces itself to an individual person, a man, and it could be said that it goes down to an at-man level, or Atman.

    Dr. Deepak Chopra, being a medical doctor yet well versed in the Vedic traditions of his homeland India brings sacred ancient wisdom to the west in a marvelously palatable and logical way.

    A more complete quote is here.

    So it seems that we have a super super hero Atman, beyond all things and matters, our cloaked flying symbol using a bat that many connect with Vampires - the living dead - and ancient caves, towers and attics. He does have a sidekick, a junior super hero, not with all the razzle dazzle of a Bat-mobile, Bat-copter, Bat-plane and Bat-cave, but he can use them in his quest for helping justice. It just seems too uncannily similar to the 2 aspects of our eternal souls, and I wanted to share the humor, lightness, levity.

    May our Atman and Robin do-gooders capture the meanies and make our Gotham City safe for all!

    Interesting concept -that of the soul having 2 forms - thanks for the post. :)

    Thank you for the opportunity I-Brain!

    Some people like to hear themselves speak, I think that when I share an idea like this I get closer to understanding myself - at the least I can see why some people just reply "Over my head! Over my head!" Here I merge Egypt, Hindu, and Batman & Robin! Whew! I guess comparative-religion is an appropriate outlet.. thanks!

    Love and light being, Teo ;) ;)
