Reading the Vedic
Literature in Sanskrit
Practicing the Transcendental
Meditation program


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

We live in a diversified universe. Our senses are constantly bombarded by millions of inputs and our physiology constantly performs millions of tasks to maintain its balance, integrity, and evolution.

The conscious comprehension of this diversified complexity and the integration of differences occur through the unifying value of the association fibres of the cerebral cortex.

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

Transcendental Meditation, the Technology of Consciousness, the technology of self-referral consciousness, is therefore the technology of the Unified Field in Physics,

the technology of the Transition State in Chemistry, the technology of the quantum regime in Cosmology, the technology of the Null Set, the source of all sets, in Mathematics, and the technology of the Integrating Centre in Regulatory Physiology;

it is Vedic Mathematics, the technology of Natural Law, the structuring dynamics of the Constitution of the Universe — the structuring dynamics of creation;

it is the technology for enlivening the total potential of the Constitution of the Universe, the structure of the Veda, in the simplest state of human awareness — it is the mathematics of consciousness that enlivens the structuring dynamics of creation and evolution.
