Meditation program


Itihas is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the quality of BLOSSOMING OF TOTALITY involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Itihas 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. (complete table of qualities)

Itihas illustrates through living examples the total range of human experience, the full blossoming of totality — the display of Natural Law in thought and action. structuring of all speech and action.

In the physiology, Mahabharata is primarily represented by the neuronal fibres, which activate the musculo-skeletal system controlling speech and action. It is through them that blossoming of thoughts and feelings into speech and action happens.

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

The Vedic theme of management through Natural Law is based on the unifying power of Natural Law

Nistrai gunyo bhava Arjuna

— come to the field of Unity, or bring your awareness to Transcendental Consciousness, and there is the Unified Field of Natural Law, the concentrated field of intelligence —the source of all evolutionary trends of life from where the whole creation, the ever-expanding universe, is spontaneously materialized.

Maharishi University of Management, p. 108
