Atharva Veda

Atharva Veda is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the quality of REVERBERATING WHOLENESS involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Atharva Veda comprises the specific sets of laws of Nature that are engaged in promoting the quality of Chhandas within Samhita level of consciousness, providing a structure to the eternally silent, self-referral, self-sufficient, fully awake state of consciousness, which is intimately personal to everyone. (complete table of qualities)

Atharva Veda is the sum total of all that is pertaining to Samhita with a predominance of Chhandas — observed, or object of observation value. Atharva Veda represents the totality of the musculo-skeletal system — the organs of action.

This aspect of the physiology makes the totality of Veda move. This is the value of reverberating wholeness.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
on the importance of
regular practice of the
Transcendental Meditation technique:

Pure wakefulness, in its self-referral state, is the SEER of Rk — it is Rk itself. Pure wakefulness is Rk, the structure of total knowledge, the one-word expression of Veda — the name of the Veda, which contains the whole form of the Veda within its structure; and Veda, the dynamics of Rk, is the mechanics of creation and evolution in that one unbounded ocean of consciousness — pure wakefulness.

Thus we find that the structure of Veda is available in the structure of Transcendental Consciousness. It is this reality that makes human consciousness, the expression of pure knowledge, the Veda, a lively field of all possibilities.
