Vedanga
Description
'Vedanga represents the limbs--or body--of Veda. The first aspect of Vedanga, Shiksha, is the quality that accounts for the mechanics of Expressing Veda. From that level of expression, Atma gets transformed from unmanifest into manifest.   This Transforming quality is Kalp. Kalp is the fundamental value that transforms Being into the becoming level. It describes how singularity brings diversity through the Self-Referral quality of consciousness. From this transformation emerges the quality of Expanding. This is Vyakaran.   These three values of Shiksha, Kalp, and Vyakaran (expression, transformation, and expansion) are upheld by a reverse process, which keeps any step of expression, transformation, and expansion connected with the source. This maintains connectedness with Atma--self-referral consciousness. This connection of the 3 qualities to their source, Atma, is upheld by Nirukt, Chhand, and Jyotish.   Whatever is being expressed is being dissolved. Homeostasis is maintained within dynamic change. This returning, the quality of Self-Referral, expresses through Nirukt. In both these values, forward and backward, there is a specific balance and a measuring quality in time and space. This specific Measuring and Qualifying is Chhand; and in this simultaneous coexistence of two values of awareness there is the quality of All-Knowing.   This all-knowingness in opposite directions is Jyotish. Chhand acts as the transforming value on the way back to pure wakefulness. In this way, we see how the structuring dynamics of pure knowledge is in terms of opposite qualities. This is a loop. It is only through a loop that the structuring dynamics can be fully and completely expressed.'   -- Professor Tony Nader, MD, PhD, Human Physiology: Expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature: Modern Science and Ancient Vedic Science Discover the Fabrics of Immortality in the Human Physiology; Maharishi Vedic University: The Netherlands, Fourth Edition, ISBN 81-7523-017-7, 2000.
