|READING VEDIC LITERATURE IN SANSKRIT||
Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
on the importance of regular practice of
the Transcendental Meditation technique:
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
Transcendental Meditation helps the awareness
The daily opportunity for the individual's
awareness to go
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)
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.

Veda and the Vedic Literature, pp. 76-77
