Global Press Conference: February 8, 2006 Dr. Hagelin: Thank you very much, Maharishi: Maharishi spoke last week about how Veda and Vedic literature is the text of Total Natural Law, the Constitution of the Universe. Maharishi also said that through Transcendental Meditation, the text of Total Natural Law can be made consciously lively in an individual mind. I always understood that meditation takes the mind to the field of silence, and I believe I know what that experience is like. But I don't think I've experienced the text of Total Natural Law in that silence. How and when does the text of Total Natural Law dawn in human awareness? What is that experience like? And what is the practical value in daily life of experiencing the text of Total Natural Law?
Maharishi: You have to practice advanced techniques of Transcendental Meditation. And in those advanced techniques, you'll experience, through practice, that which is Total Natural Law, where two contradictory valuespositive and negative: that is, constructive and destructive; that is, collapsing and emergingthe two you will see simultaneously, where consciousness on one side is language, in terms of sounds, [and] on the other side, in terms of physiology. There you will see how the physiology is resulting from field of consciousness. It's an experience; it's an experience. So you take advanced techniques of Yogic Flying, Sidhi program, and you will experience that when the mind gradually, gradually becomes more capable of refined perception, on that level you'll be able to see, "Yes: this is positive, this is negative; this is collapsing, this is emerging"two different values"This is silence, this is dynamism." It's an experience; it's an experience; it's an experience. And then you'll see, "Yes"what is the sound of the Veda, and what is the gap between two sounds: the word and the gap and the word and the gap. This is what the flow of Veda is. It's an experience on your own level of consciousness. And there you will feeland there you will feel: What you'll feel? Those agencies which are called Devatas. You'll see the Devatas in the words of the Veda, and you'll see different Devatas changing the words of the Veda in the gaps. The secret of the Devata is in the gaps. And the gap is what you experience in the Transcendental Consciousness. That is why the Veda says, "In this field of the collapse within the gap, you have the Devata, which makes the abstractwhich makes the unmanifestflow." The unmanifest flow is how the gap flows from one side of it to the end of it, and then transforms the initial word into the following wordthe flow. Who makes it flow? There must be someone who makes it flow, and there must be someone who can start the flow, maintain the flow, and end the flow. And these are the agencies, the instruments, theuh? sort of, these are the scientists which start the flow, which maintain the flow, and maintain the flow in a particular order; and then end the flow. This is the world of the devata. This is the world of those agencies which maintain the dynamism in the field of silence. It's most delightful, and it's most enjoyable field of knowledge. This is Vedic knowledge. It's an experience; it's an experience; it's an experience. Take these formulas that we have received from Guru Dev and we are giving to the world. There are, I think, a few thousandthese teachers of advanced techniques of Transcendental Meditation. So we are providing that experience where the Vedic sounds can be recognized what the sounds arenot only the sound, but who is at the basis of the sound: the Devata because the sound flows when it flows from one point to the other point, from one to the other, from one to the other. Then, in sequence, some other Devata takes over. One Devata goes from here to here; the other goes from here to here; the other goes from here to here; the other goes from here to here. This is the structural dynamics of the Vedic language. This is the structural dynamics of the total field of knowledge, which is at the basis of all creation, in the field of the unmanifest. This is Vedic science: all about what it is there in the field of the unmanifest. There's a world of abstract realities in the transcendental field. There is a world of that. And that world is more competent and more capable than our world, which is limited to sensory perception. Our world of sensory perception is also governed by the Devatas. Eyes have their own Devatas; ears have their own Devatas. It's a matter of knowing themand knowing them on the basis of their causal value, the causal value. Because this is not the common education, that's why people don't know what is the cause; they just surmise on the effect only. But the education should take the people to the basic values of transformation. And they are there in the structure of the Rig Veda, Sama Veda, Yajur Veda, Atharva Veda. It's a world of its ownbut that's a world of the eternal existence, infinite range of life, infinite possibilities. That is at the basis of the unmanifest; that is unmanifest, that is unmanifest. Vedic _expression to explain this is Richo akshare parame vyoman / Yasmin deva adhi vishve nisheduh: "These richas, the laws of nature, the Constitution of the Universe, is in the transcendental field. There, in the transcendental field, reside the Veda." The word is reside the Veda. So it's not a conceptual reality; it's a physical reality which resides somewhere. Where does it reside? It resides in the transcendental, self-referral field of consciousnesseternally resides. So they arethey are not a concept [laughter]. They are not a concept. It's a concept to those who don't know. So not-knowing peoplestupid people, ignorant peoplecan say anything and anything and anything. So we are all right. We would like to close, because I should attend to the unmanifest now [laughter]. Dr. Hagelin, give them today's news? And bless the world press. ------------------------ Yahoo!
