Thanks luvgemlight, this is wonderful.  I've also heard Maharishi call ni the 
continuation of negation.   Which in the circumstances is kind of a paradox.  
Which I love.

If the cornucopia of wealth comes from agni, then possibly agni is more than 
merely 'fire'? Consider this interpretation....

>From the 1974 MIU Course Catalog, Maharishi explains 'agnim' phoneme by 
>phoneme as it accumulates meaning sequentially from the first sound...

a = fullness.
g = puts a stop to fullness.
n = negates the stop of fullness.
i = progresses this negation of fullness' stop.
m = maintains this whole thing, on and on and on, like a continuous hum.

Now, let's apply this sequential rendering as a five-step template of sorts 
straight from the TM technique...

a = "least action is achieved": the field of the transcendent (even the sage, 
Milarepa, discerns the fullness of the "transcendental field" as the field of 
least action).
g = "through alternation between": alternating phases are preceded by a stop to 
the previous phase before starting the next phase.
n = "rest" (the negation of the relative's natural state of continuous activity)
i = "and activity" (activity always breeds progressive growth)
m = "maintained as a daily/etc routine" (how else can anything be maintained, 
but as a sequence of cyclic phases?)

Sum total -
"Least action is achieved through alternation between rest and activity 
maintained in regular cycles."

So, TM (yogic union with agni) achieves wealth (samadhi/agni) through agni (the 
five-step template described above). Kind of like saying: the course of life is 
"from here to here" through here as well.

But of course, we already know that Maharishi uses the term 'TM' since 
westerners have a strange predilection for believing that yoga means merely 
postures. So, he couldn't use the more obvious term of 'yoga'. Yet, "yogasta 
kuru karmani" = "established in Being, perform action", one of the two mottos 
of this movement (the other is, "nistraigunyo bhavarjun" = transcend) really 
means established in yoga, doesn't it? Kind of gives away what TM is all
