Shukla-Yajur-Veda Pratishakhya

Shukl-Yajur-Veda Pratishakhya is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the SILENCING, SPREADING quality involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Shukl-Yajur-Veda Pratishakhya comprises the specific sets of laws of Nature that are engaged in promoting the quality of Devata — the process of observation, the dynamism of observing 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)

Yajur-Veda represents wholeness with reference to Devata value. As mentioned earlier, Devata is the link between Rishi and Chhandas — between the knower and the known. It corresponds in the physiology to the processing systems.

The higher order cognitive level of this interconnecting and processing aspect of this interconnecting and processing aspect of physiological activity resides in the cerebral cortex in Layers II and III.

on the importance of
regular practice of the
Transcendental Meditation technique:

The total reality of this universal level of absolute administration is provided by the unifying principle, which establishes the entire range of diversity on the ground of Unity — fully awake within itself in its self-referral state.

The self-referral state of human consciousness, which is easily accessible to everyone through my Transcendental Meditation, has been identified as the self-sufficient source of pure knowledge and its infinite organizing power — the home of all the Laws of Nature, the holistic structure of all the Laws of Nature displayed in Rk Veda, the Constitution of the Universe, and its structuring dynamics, differentiated structures of all the Laws of Nature available in the Vedic Literature.
