Maharishi said that all devotees can awaken the nine qualities explained by Lord Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita. The lord has defined these qualities as earth, water, fire, air, sky, mind, intellect and ego. The ninth quality is Transcendental Consciousness.
In fact, the devotees awaken the eight qualities until Ashtami (the eighth day), and all these qualities merge with the Transcendental Consciousness on the ninth day, and finally, the Transcendental Consciousness awakens the total knowledge and infinite dynamism on the tenth day of Vijaya Dashami, he said.
The creator of the Science of Consciousness said that it is a scientific concept of awakening the Shivatva, or the domain of total silence, which then transforms into total dynamism. By reciting the Nava Durga hymns (glorification of Goddess Durga) and performing Anushthanas, the devotees can awaken all the Devis and Devatas (supreme creative impulses) defined in Veda and Vedic Literature in their physiology.
On this auspicious occasion, Maharishi also called for the opening of Vedic schools to impart the Vedic Wisdom, consciousness based education, to the children. He said that he would help people or organizations in their endeavour to set up such schools, so that the darkness could be removed from society.
