I very often feel like reciting what Robert Browning ecstatically felt when getting a chance to meet his love source, Elizabeth Barret, crying “…the moment made eternity”. It was a love much beyond a physical romance. This was a moment of ecstasy much bordering what is known as supreme love, a love superbly divine. Drowned dead deep into a sort of limitless divinity, he echoed into the ears of his love mate “Who knows the world may end tonight”. What a name Browning might have thought to give to such sort of feelings and realisation, I don’t know, but what I prefer to derive out of it is that it was some thing far far away from the carnal desires based on physical needs. To translate such an ecstatic moment in terms of the message contained in Bhagwatgeeta, it was the pinnacle of Truth transcending the barriers of the worldly bondages culminating into the abode of the Supreme, where this very earth seems to be a non-existent entity. Geeta talks about it like this:
Indriyani paranyahurendrabhya param manah
Man tastu para buddhi, buddhiryo par tastu sah
Lord Krishna tells Arjun that feelings (heart) emerge from physical faculties to form the mental wave. and what ultimately emerges from the mental wave is the Supreme, that is Me. The very cycle of various faculties moves this way: Heart>Mind>Satiation>Pleasure>Peace>Ecstasy>Enlightenment>The Supreme. It is here that the earthly world ceases to exist, like Robert Browning realised, and the Love overtakes every thing culminating into Eternity in superbly sublime and celestial an order.
