Reading the Vedic
Literature in Sanskrit
Practicing the Transcendental
Meditation program


Brahmana is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the STRUCTURING quality involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Brahmana comprises the specific sets of laws of Nature that are engaged in promoting the quality of Chhandas — the object of observation, which hides the dynamism of Devata in the witnessing quality of Rishi--within the 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)

Brahmana represents the structuring quality of self-referral consciousness within the Samhita of self-referral consciousness. It elaborates that quality through the detailed structuring of all speech and action.

In the physiology, Brahmana is represented by the descending, or motor tracts. These structures contain within them the expressions of the sum total of all structuring of speech, action, and behavior.

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

It is striking how the properties of the Unified Field are precisely the attributes of consciousness. Consciousness alone is fully self-referral, since only consciousness has the ability to know itself in a completely self-referral manner — it is its own subject, its own object, and its own subject-object relationship.

Moreover, consciousness in its self-referral state — Transcendental Consciousness — is the source of all mental activity and therefore field of pure intelligence and infinite dynamism.
