A quote from Maharishi on ritam bhara pragya that I found on Chopra's blog:
‘When awareness is permanently established in Pure Consciousness, only the truth will dawn in one’s awareness. This state of consciousness is called Ritam-bhara pragya, “that intelligence which knows only the truth”. ‘During the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique, as the awareness goes from the gross thinking level to finer thinking levels and then to the Transcendent, the experience of Ritam-bhara pragya can occur on the finest thinking level, very close to the Transcendent. In this experience one feels “I know everything”. As the practice advances the experience of Ritam-bhara pragya becomes permanently established. ‘When one’s awareness is established on the level of Ritam-bhara pragya, it is possible to produce specific impulses, or sounds, in order to produce any desired influence on an object. This level of consciousness has control over the whole field of objectivity. By developing this ability to produce effects in creation according to one’s desire, one gains mastery over Nature.’ —Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 26 July 1971 ________________________________ From: "doctordumb...@rocketmail.com" <doctordumb...@rocketmail.com> To: FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com Sent: Wednesday, September 25, 2013 10:44 PM Subject: [FairfieldLife] Ritam Bhara Pragya and world peace >From the BATGAP forum. The context was world peace. This is a post I made, >over there, earlier this evening: "Kind of funny the way Maharishi used to talk A LOT about patience, and his analogy of selling pencils to earn money, one pencil at a time. Burned right through my youthful enthusiasm, and later, my ego, just long enough to make me realize, that he was expressing a time frame that operates on its own, leading surely to success. Helped me get past false expectations for myself, and the world. Allowed me to stay focused on the goal, which I thought was external for the longest time, and it *almost* is: Ritam Bhara Pragya. When I first heard about "Ritam", in the 1980's, it was in the context of immediate benefit, expression of the sidhis. Now I find out, backwards, that it is the state of mind, where the rhythm of the mind matches the rhythm of the universe. I found out backwards, because I was thinking about how to finish the sentence in paragraph two, and 'Ritam Bhara Pragya' came in, so I googled it, and found out it was exactly what I was trying to express. So, that's how stuff happens now. Further unfolding of the TMSP - full access to mind, matter, and everything in between. An expansion of living Brahman, where the difference between inside and out, practically disappears, this is another union, between an enlightened mind (intellect and heart in Yoga), and manifestation, or not, in the manifest world, the physical world. The deepest and most powerful impulses of creation make themselves known, not in any dramatic fashion, but in a way that is natural, and approachable, making as much sense as those more obvious laws in what I will call the most obvious world. Finally, such experience is incredibly useful! An entire landscape, conforming to Maharishi's expression, "do less, and accomplish more", opens up. A very different, yet deeply satisfying way of functioning, where any point in time or space, ranging from nanoseconds, to cosmic eons, is available. No gaps. Certainly, for myself, I am rarely greatly concerned about my well being. However, every human desires world peace, and I will always wait, and work, for that."
