Vedic Literature
Description
Vedic Literature is nothing but pure knowledge.   "Maharishi explains that the Vedic Literature is the eternal expression of the self-interacting dynamics of a unified field of pure, self-referral consciousness, which underlies the entire universe. This field of consciousness is not only the basis of all forms and phenomena, but also the simplest form of human awareness, available through the Maharishi Transcendental Meditation® technique.   Maharishi describes in detail how self-referral consciousness moves within itself, expressing itself as unmanifest sounds, which constitute the Laws of Nature that create and administer the universe. These sounds are recorded in the texts of the Vedic Literature, and expressed in human physiology. When the texts of the Vedic Literature are read with proper pronunciation by individuals who practice the Transcendental Meditation technique, these most fundamental impulses of Natural Law are enlivened in the mind, body, and environment, accelerating growth to higher states of consciousness."   -- From Reading the Vedic Literature: Maharishi’s Program of Reading the Vedic Literature: Unfolding the Total Potential of Natural Law, by William F. Sands, Ph.D.
