Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Gandharva Veda Sanskrit
   His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
   on the importance of regular practice of
   the Transcendental Meditation technique:
Stotras are hymns of praise, describing and glorifying the Vedic Devatas, the impulses of creative intelligence responsible for administering the entire creation. Many stotras celebrate the Devata with different names, as many as a thousand names, as in the case of the Sahasranama stotras. Each name refers to a quality of consciousness. Listening to or reciting the names of the administrators of the universe enlivens those qualities in the individual awareness,
 

The development of higher states of consciousness
gives a vision of greater creativity. Greater creativity means
the ability to perform action from deeper levels of silence.

With regular practice of Transcendental Meditation the
individual develops Unity Consciousness, which is the
ability to function from the level of silence. This is the
development of mastery over Natural Law--mastery over
specific Laws of Nature, which is the level of Maharishi's
Master Management--automation in administration.

and at the same time those qualities are charged in the environment. Listening to the various stotras, the listener dives deep into the ocean of consciousness, which is the infinite source of knowledge, power, and bliss, and attains the four goals of human life, righteousness, affluence in every area of life, fulfillment of all desires and enlightenment.
 
 

Maharishi brings to light that the Vedic Devata are the various aspects of Natural Law that organize the entire universe and maintain it in perfect order. They are Laws of Nature, or collections of Laws of Nature, with specific administrative functions that provide for the creation, maintenance, and dissolution of the entire universe. They are the creative powers of cosmic dimension, permeating the whole creation. All the Devata, all the impulses of Creative Intelligence of Natural Law, are present in every point of creation.

The Devata are integral aspects of our own human physiology. They are embodied in every human being with the same forms and functions described in the Vedic Literature. The Devata are present in the physiology of everyone, no matter what one's race, belief system, or religion, no matter which political party one associates with, or in which geographical area one is born.

The ventral view of the brain, (the brain seen from underneath), shows the clear correspondence between Ganesh and the pons, medulla, and cerebellum. The face of Ganesh corresponds to the pons. The medulla represents the trunk of Ganesh. The roots of the trigeminal nerves represent the eyes of Ganesh. A group of nerves at the pons represent the tusks of Ganesh. The cerebellum constitutes the ears of Ganesh. These structures not only look like Ganesh, but their functions in human physiology correspond to the functions and activities ascribed to Ganesh. (See pp. 341-347, Human Physiology: Expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature.)
