Sthapatya Veda

Sthapatya Veda

Sthapatya Veda is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the ESTABLISHING quality involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Sthapatya Veda 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.

Sthapatya Veda represents the science of structure at the individual and cosmic levels. The perfect anatomy allows the experience of unboundedness within the individual well-defined structures of anatomy.

It is the science which establishes wholeness through parts and has a predominantly Chhandas quality. The co-ordinated functioning of the cells, organs, and systems of the physiology with their various shapes and sizes establishes a wholeness which is more than the sum of its parts.

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

Transcendental Meditation helps the awareness to transcend boundaries and go beyond the field of limitations; this is how Transcendental Meditation, providing the opportunity to create unboundedness, infinity, eternity, satisfies the inner creativity and inner genius of life by providing an opportunity for the full expression of Creative Intelligence.

The daily opportunity for the individual's awareness to go beyond boundaries (through Transcendental Meditation) neutralizes the rigidity caused by the boundaries of the daily routine.
