Renowned researcher in Maharishi's Vedic Science and Sanskrit scholar Dr William Sama* spoke during the recent celebration of Raam Navami** on the Maharishi Channel's Global Family Chat, honouring the historic release of Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam's new book, Ramayana in Human Physiology.
'Maharaja has brilliantly laid out the book,' Dr Sama said, 'starting with a number of introductory chapters on Maharishi Vedic Science and the human physiology and then proceeding with an analysis of the Ramayana that continues in a systematic and sequential way.'
Dr Sama read excerpts from Balakanda [chapter one], verse twelve, where the sage Narada is speaking in praise of Raam: ' ''He is a knower of Dharma, Natural Law, the embodiment of truth and intent on the protection of his citizens. He is illustrious, filled with profound knowledge, powerful, of great purity, and established in the Self.'' '
Dr Sama then read Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam's commentary on this verse. ' ''In the human physiology, Raam is located in the area of the sensory and motor cortex and the supplementary sensory motor cortex. This part of the brain is the great ruler of the entire physiology, for it is here that all sensory information arrives and all orders for motor activity are sent out. It is a supreme part of the human physiology, an area of rulership and balance, containing within it the structures of Vishnu and Shiva.'' ' ***
Dr Sama explained that in the Ramayana, 'Raam is exiled to the forest in fulfilment of a wish granted to his stepmother, Queen Kaikeyi, by his father, King Dasaratha. Maharaja beautifully relates these characters to the human physiology. ''Dasaratha . . . is located in the brain stem,'' expounds Maharaja. ''This part of the brain rules over the inner aspects of the physiology and is an extremely important centre through which all information must pass as it comes into and leaves the brain. Kaikeyi corresponds to the anterior cerebral artery covering the anterior parts of the brain and curving around the singular gyrus and the limbic system, which is related to pleasure, emotions, feelings, and to anticipation of the future.''
'Maharaja's new book elucidates Raam's 14 years of exile,' Dr Sama continued, 'which correspond to the development of different skills and the establishment of different relationships in the physiology. The book reveals that Raam's exile ''corresponds to that period when connections and pathways between different parts of the nervous system and the physiology as a whole are correlated. This is the period of original physiological development of any human being, during which one builds the personality structuring the ability to think and function in accord with Natural Law. As we grow from childhood to adulthood and develop these skills, our brain continues to grow and develop fuller and fuller values of conductivity within itself. These values of conductivity take place by virtue of Raam making connections with different parts of the body, thereby creating a more integrated and developed state of physiological function.'' '
Dr Sama concluded, 'So this gives us a flavour of how Maharaja proceeds through the Ramayana and how he goes deeply into the physiological connections of each character, animal, mountain, river, forest, etc. It's an unbelievable study, and something that I think everybody is going to enjoy immensely.'
*Dr Sama is also Co-Director of Administration in the national administration of Raja John Hagelin, Raja of Invincible America.

***Vishnu and Shiva are aspects of Natural Law expressing respectively the qualities of infinite dynamism and infinite silence.
