In the Global Family Chat on 9 June 2007, on the occasion of celebrating the achievements of Dr Hagelin, Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace, Maharishi gave deep insights into the nature of Smriti, memory, the Devatas, and Brahm, Totality.
Maharishi said that having heard John Hagelin's perception of reality, it was a very great satisfaction to hear the proposal from the President of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) to have this day celebrated year after year in the countless future [with the new Tower of Invincibility that will be built at MUM and Washington DC].
'This day is being celebrated by the collective consciousness of so many thousand students of Dr Hagelin,' Maharishi said, 'who have been engaged in the scientific research on the surface of life in the gross, and internally in the depths of their own self-referral consciousness. In this they have generated this day, the value of which we have heard beautifully described by Dr Hagelin.
'All the field of the Smriti, memory, [is] the memory of the Unified Field. Within the Unified Field—the endless depth of absolute silence deep within the ocean—is the silence, and this silence has a memory. This silence is its self-referral state and the whole memory of what the self-referral is. Complete self-referral is fully awake in two kinds of memory: memory of the deepest level of the ocean, infinite silence, along with the memory of the surface values of the waves of the ocean.
'So waves of the ocean on the surface [come] from the ocean silence and memory. This ''waves of memory'' is the connecting link between great, endless surface activity and great silence. Infinite activity on one level, infinitely silent on the other level, and both connected with the memory.
'And this memory is what? Memory is [made] lively by the Devata. There is a word in the Vedic Literature, the Devata. What is there in the self-referral state? Everyone knows, and I have repeated a thousand times—I'll just remind you—Richo akshare, the 'Ak', the collapse of infinity, 'A', into 'Ka'.
'And what is the big collapse? What is collapsing? Infinity into a point. So this is what we say—memory, memory. This is Smriti, and wherever there is a movement—collapse means movement—from one to the other, from one to the other, that contrasts with the silence. Silence is steady. 'Move' is silence losing its absolute nature and gaining its relative nature.
'So this move of the silence, how it happens? The Rk Veda says Yasmin deva adhi vishwe nisheduh. Richo akshare parame vyoman. The Richas are in the collapse in the transcendental, and what is there? Yasmin deva adhi vishwe nisheduh. Deva adhi vishwe: [it is] the Devatas that uphold the administration of the universe; [it is] the Devatas that bring about multiplication of the Unity. These Devatas reside in the transcendental, self-referral field. So here is a whisper of Vedic Science to physical science.
'What is the whisper? The whisper is that there is a connected link from complete self-referral to object referral, and this is the administration of the universe, and this is the Veda. Richo akshare parame vyoman, yasmin deva adhi vishwe nisheduh. The Devata are in the structuring dynamics of Veda. What [are the] Devata there? Devata are—I give a word and that word I am mentioning, Dr Hagelin has taught to his students—they are able to produce the effect of national administration rising more and more in its successful value.
'Successful value of administration [means] everyone is happy, no-one is in any way difficult to each other; no-one in conflict, no negativity; all health, wealth, wisdom everywhere. This is the administration of the Devata value.
'In this we have three values: transcendental self-referral value, the Devata value, and the physical transformations of Devata. Dr Hagelin has been explaining to the students in terms of the physiology of the brain. All the research of our Maharaja Raam-ji, who said ''Physiology is the expression of consciousness, of intelligence, and this intelligence is awake.'' This is active in terms of Devata, in the company of intelligence.
'So there is self-referral; now we call it Brahm. Now we are seeing how many levels [there are]. One level is Brahm, Brahm; the other level is Devata; the third level is the physical universe. So these three levels of reality—transcendental, self-referral consciousness, the field at the basis of the physical creation; being at the basis of physical creation, it is that which creates sensory perception, sensory levels of reality—the five senses. So there is a distinction.
'The distinction will also be on another level, which is intellect. Now intellect has its value in five bifurcations of the one total reality. In the Vedic expression, the world of the reality is divided into three values. [There are] three values now—Adhy-atma, Adhi-deva, and Adhi-bhuta. Adhy-atmika, pure spirituality, pure Unity, self-referral totality, Brahm.
'So Brahm is a combination of the two values, knowledge and action: science and technology together. Knowledge and action, that is Brahm. And then another level of Brahm [is] this level of the Veda, the level of Devata. And Devata level is the level of Ayur-Veda—that being when 'A' becomes Ayu divided, into today, tomorrow, next day.
'The Kala [time]—the periods come along, and when the periods come along, division of infinity comes along, and when the divisions come along, then disunity comes along, physical universe comes along. So from the physical universe to the non-physical, which is the cause of physical, to the Devata level, and from the Devata to the unifying state of all the Devatas, that is Brahm.
'There is a word in the Vedic Literature, the word is Raam. Raam Brahm, pure spirituality, also Raam. Raam is the ruler of the three worlds; Raam is the ruler of three worlds because it is a summation. It is a unity of millions of Devatas. There are millions of Devatas in the Veda.
'On the Vedic level [are] the organizational laws—the system of administration of the Vedanga—and the Raam Brahm level, the Brahm level, [is] the transcendental level: transcendental to the three qualities of the Veda, Rishi, Devata, Chhandas; three values, in terms of reverberating values, reverberation of the first one.
'Brahm is Nirguna nirakara Brahma, Totality, transcendental, all self-referral. That means Atma level, Atma level [is] that self-referral, transcendental—and when it is on the working level, then it is creating multiplicity from Atma. 'A' first syllable of Atma. 'A' is again the first syllable of the Veda. So Atma turns into Veda, and Veda turns into Vishwa [the universe]. Vishwa is multiplicity.
'So three levels of reality. These are the Vedic words: Adhy-atmika, Adhi-vaidika, Devata, and Adhi-bhautika, physical. Adhy-atma, spirituality, Adhy-atma, spirituality, pure spirituality, pure Unity, so Raam Brahm Paramarath Rupa [Raam is Brahm, the ultimate goal of life] and Raam is Veda. Veda is Raam, the administrator of the universe. The Constitution of the Universe [is] in terms of Raam. Raam, the Constitution of the Universe, is in terms of the Veda.
'It becomes physical in terms of the physical Raam, the Raja coming from the Solar Dynasty, the physical Raam. So [there are] these three values, and Dr Hagelin has been not mentioning the Vedic terminology in order that the students go straight from reality to reality to reality. [There are these] three levels of reality, and he has created within them the insight into the three values Raam Brahm, Raam Veda, Raam Vishwa.
'These three values are and will be contained on the level of meeting in the central university: Maharishi Central University. Three values. Brahm is the ruler, Raam Brahma Paramarath Rupa. Raam. The word Raam, Ra, Ra, Ra, the reverberation of 'A': reverberation of 'A' is Atma. In terms of self-referral it is 'A', self-referral flow of Veda. And the flow of Veda, 'A' explains from infinity to point.'
Global Good News will feature Part II of this talk on 21 June.
