Nyaya
Description
Nyaya, the science of reasoning expounded by Gautama, presents sixteen points by which to test the procedure of gaining knowledge.   Nyaya is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the DISTINGUISHING and DECIDING qualities involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Nyaya comprises the specific sets of laws of Nature that are engaged in promoting the quality of Rishi the observer, the witnessing quality within the Samhita level of consciousness, providing a structure to the eternally silent, self-referral, self-sufficient, fully awake state of consciousness, which is intimately personal to everyone.
