Atharva Veda Pratishakhya (Chaturadhyayi)

Atharva Veda Pratishakhya (Chaturadhyayi) is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the DISSOLVING quality involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Chaturadhyayi 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.

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

The coexistence of fully awake silence and fully awake dynamism within the structure of Samhita of Rishi, Devata, Chhandas presents the lively potential of total knowledge, lively potential of total intelligence — the Ultimate Reality, the Veda — the lively potential of infinite creativity in one's own self-referral consciousness, Transcendental Consciousness.

This explains how very important it is for everyone to practice Transcendental Meditation, which is the most direct, most natural, and most easy, effortless procedure to stabilize the quality of pure intelligence in the awareness, or consciousness, or intelligence, of every individual.
