April 2006 Press Conference Highlights
Guru Dev. Yes? If there is any question from the press, now, we have talked enough, and we’ll continue to talk, but now is the time to eat the fruit*.
‘We have been watering the
root of Total Knowledge. Now, on the scientific level, this Unified Field
has been discovered. So, today's scientific education should be not the
old test-tube laboratory experimentation, which now is a waste of time for
the children. The Unified Field has been discovered. And now, we are with time, we want to make use
of it. And the best use of it, I thought, was for invincibility to every country.
The unified state of every national life will be the unit of world peace.
‘Very beautifully, we are going ahead on that. Now it is a matter
of the world press beginning to see increasingly, as the days go by,
as the weeks go by, as the months go by, see increasingly the integrated state
of world peace, so beautifully described by the champion,
by the lighthouse of this scientific age, Dr Hagelin. . . . Life is going to be lived in terms of the Unified Field,
where it will be all prevention oriented.
‘Just a group in every country—that's all—a small group in every country and that we are going to do. We have enough sensible people in the world, enough sensible people in the world. Now, after
fifty years, three, four generations have gone—more and more people
are practicing that uniformity of life, that Unified Field of Natural
Law, the Constitution of the Universe. And more effect of it is coming:
much finer values of Natural Law, which constitute the physiology of the
person, which constitute the whole behavioural values of society
and the nation. They are all so beautifully penetrating into human
consciousness that the world is getting to be grounded, rooted, in something
very beautiful, very beautiful, very beautiful.
‘So, always, as always, we invite the world press to see, see, and see, and see that they can be instrumental
in quickly bringing [this] home to the people throughout the world through
all the media, through all the network of communications. These days
one could be anywhere, and one can be everywhere. With this facility provided
by the media, we will see that, without much loss of time now,
the world is going to be transformed.
‘Great glory to the Vedic Tradition, which has been holding the
fort of total Natural Law, the Constitution of the Universe. How beautifully
Dr Hagelin described the Constitution of the Universe as belonging to
everyone, belonging to every nation. Now is the time no one can be out
of that light of life.
‘Dr Hagelin, bless the world press. If there is any question, we
can answer it very quickly now, because we are so deeply engaged these
days in creating that effect. We want to create that effect which we have
been talking [about] all the time. All the time we were creating that effect,
but now we want to do it more quickly, quickly, quickly.’

*Now is the time to enjoy the effects of rising coherence in world consciousness due to the long time practice in the world of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme.

Palaces Provide an Influence of Peace
Hagelin: ‘Thank you very much, Maharishi, for those beautiful
opening remarks. As Maharishi said, time is extremely precious, and Maharishi
is deeply engaged in producing the actual effect of peace, enlightenment,
and invincibility throughout the world. Having spoken to the press for
so many decades, the time is very precious now for being dedicated to
producing the effect rather than talking about it. If we have a few moments,
interesting questions have arisen, as always.
first question for Maharishi is: I read that the new World Capital of
Peace, which is being built in the geographic centre of America, will
be designed, as Maharishi put it, to be “a concrete expression,
on the level of brick and mortar, of the abstract, unmanifest Constitution
of the Universe”. This leads me to several follow-up questions.
Number one: What does the Constitution of the Universe look like? And
number two: What is the practical value for the government and people of building a capital in such
a cosmic manner?’
purpose will be to see—just these words “to
see”—what the Cosmic Constitution is and what the capital of the administration through the Cosmic Constitution [is].
We say: just the first paragraph of the Rig Ved, the first paragraph of the Rig Ved.
‘Talking in terms of a paragraph, there are nine lines in that
paragraph, and the nine lines are divided into—each line divided into three. So, one line is the
total Constitution of the Universe. It has been expanded into eight lines.
This is the first paragraph of the Constitution of the Universe. If you
take a book of the Constitution—now I am reading how many lines
are there right in the opening— there is one line in the opening,
and that expands to, that sequentially expands to, the other eight lines.
‘Now, what are these eight lines emerging from the first line? They
are the sequentially expanded version of the Constitution of the Universe.
The whole first paragraph has 192 words, we can say. And each line has twenty-four
words. And the first line is the source from which all the eight lines
emerge. The twenty-four words of the first line expand themselves into
192 words of the following eight lines.
‘This is the structure of the Constitution of the Universe. I am
describing to you how you can see the cosmic law written in language—how you can see.
You see one line, twenty-four words, expanding themselves. I am not using
the Vedic terminology; I am just using an ordinary vision.
‘Where is the
Constitution of the Universe? In the first—the word is “Sukta”.
I am using the word, just an ordinary word, we say the first “page”
of the Constitution of the Universe. What it has? 192 words. How [do] these 192
words come out—from where? They come out of the twenty-four words of the first line.
‘How the twenty-four words of the first line emerge from the
first word: that is the secret of all knowledge. All knowledge is contained
in 192 words. All knowledge is more densely available in twenty-four
words of the first line. All knowledge is densely concentrated in the first
word, from where it expands into twenty-four words.
‘This is how you see—you see the Constitution of the Universe.
You see with your eyes. And when you see with your eyes, Vedic Pandits
say, “I'll make you listen through your ears.” Now, he recites
Vedic recitation, Vedic recitation, Vedic recitation. What's he reciting? He is reciting the melody of the
Constitution of the Universe, that you can hear what you see.
‘Now we are structuring on the ground. We are structuring on the
ground just that one paragraph of the Constitution of the Universe. Buildings
are laid out according to that. First word, from there, how the
first word expands: this is one more miracle of it. The Constitution of
the Universe is, just supposing, [like] the description of any football, the football team: one man kicks [the ball], the ball goes here, the ball
goes there, the ball goes there, the ball goes there. The Constitution
of the Universe is laid out with such precision, and the precision of
the sequence is what makes it tangible on the level of practicality
‘Unified Field—the huge, infinite diversity of the universe—[is]
sung in those eight lines. All that is sung in those eight lines is sung
in one line, concentratedly. All that one sings in that one line—the
total Constitution of the Universe—is sung in the first word, in
one word. Everyone can see what the word is; everyone can listen [to] what
the word is; everyone can speak what the word is. And when one speaks
what the word is, then the brain functions—total brain functions.
‘One speaks from
the throat, from the total throat; the whole physical mechanism is involved
in producing that one syllable, “A”. This one syllable is
the seat of the grand Master. We say: the seat of God—God speaks,
the melody of God, bliss. All the music and non-music flows, flows,
flows. That is the action principle, action principle. And you see the action principle.
‘We have structured the first
Sukta of Rig Veda. There is one word of Rig Ved; there is one—we call it "Richa"—there is one verse of Rig
Ved; and then we have a Sukta, a bigger one, Sukta; and then we have Mandala; and
then we have ten Mandalas of Rig Ved—all in perfect sequence. And that sequence
is found all over. It's all over. Whether one knows it or not, but one is
driven by that, one is controlled by that, one is motivated by that. That
is the field of Total Knowledge, we are structuring.
‘It was very beautiful when Dr Hagelin was laying
the foundation stone of the Peace Government in the centre of America. He came out with just this idea, this question, and the answer to it:
What is it? What is the Constitution of the Universe? John Hagelin said, “It is
available in the mathematical equations of numbers.” And there is no
flexibility in number. Number says hundred—finished;
hundred—finished. So, that is one way of expressing something. The other way of expressing
it: now [is] how the action principle begins, and it flows and flows and flows
and flows, covers the whole range of space and time in flow. The other
is a mathematical thing—we just say, and that's it.
‘We want to have a mathematical expression of it laid out on the
ground for all time for people to see. This first letter is there and is there a gap after that, and then the second letter is there, and there is a gap after that. So, a word and a gap
and the word and the gap and the word and the gap—in this way, sequentially,
the law is available. Where [is it] available? It's available in the field
of the manifest. And where else it is available? It's available in the
field of the unmanifest.
‘The gaps between words have the law, the Constitution of the Universe,
in the unmanifest field. The unmanifest field is what we have been talking
about—transcendental, self-referral. The whole story of the Constitution
of the Universe is available in the gaps: one gap and the word and the
gap and the word and the gap and the word and the gap and the word. Everything
is pure Total Knowledge, pure Total Knowledge, pure Total Knowledge. That means pure knowledge of the whole unmanifest [and] knowledge of the whole manifest.
‘This is the structure of the Veda. This is the structure of the
Constitution of the Universe. It expresses, and it expresses the unexpressed.
Both fields are governed by the same law, because one law has these two
values as its own nature. The whole manifest, manifesting process,
is the nature of the law. The whole field of unmanifest, the whole
field of unmanifesting—there are two things we are counting. We are counting
manifesting—we are counting manifest, knowledge of manifesting,
the process—and the non-state of manifest. So, unmanifest is also governed
by law—systematic law. There is order in the unmanifest field. And from
where it comes? It comes from the basis of the manifest, which is
the reality of the unmanifest.
‘The unmanifest, also manifest—this means Total Knowledge.
Total Knowledge means silence and dynamism. The unmanifest is all the
field of silence, but that “all the field of silence” is not
inertia. It is awake in itself.
‘The transcendental field is not [like] when one is tired, when the brain is tired, one feels restful in
that state—so restful that he doesn't even remember that, “I
am feeling, I am experiencing silence.” He becomes completely silent,
even in the sleep state. Complete silence, but that complete silence is energizing, we say.
‘When one is fully
awake in the transcendent, which is Transcendental Consciousness, one
is completely silent. That total silence is known by all the senses of
perception getting to that state. You can't know it from outside.
You can't know it from outside, because from outside, you are
the witness, and there is the process of witnessing, and there is that
object of witness. So, when you are out of it, you are—now I want to
use two words—you are a “noun” and a “verb” and the total effect of the noun and the verb, which is exploration of the objective.
But when you are in that state, you are yourself noun—you are yourself
the knower—so, the process of knowing also you are and the object of
knowing you also are there.
‘Therefore, two simultaneously opposite in characteristic qualities,
two values—silence and dynamism—these two together constitute
the Constitution of the Universe. One is always silent; and one is always
dynamic. That is why it is the Cosmic Administrator. Nothing is beyond
its jurisdiction. Constitution—Cosmic Constitution—nothing is beyond its
‘[In] the present constitution of different countries: everything
is beyond their jurisdiction. One country says, “I like this, I
like this.” The other country [says], “My constitution is this.
I like this, I like this, I like this.” In the present state of
constitutions which govern the countries, there is nothing which holds
together Total Knowledge.
‘In the Cosmic Constitution—the Constitution
of the Universe—the knowledge of the unmanifest and the knowledge
of the manifest, both are together, together, together. It is easier to
be together in Total Knowledge rather than be a part of knowledge—either
of the relative or of the absolute, either of the changing world or non-changing world.
‘So, the Vedic approach to knowledge is: know. Know what Total Knowledge [is].
There is a big exposure to this Total Knowledge in the field of language.
What is that language? It's the language of the transcendental, self-referral
consciousness. What is that language? That language is: lamp at the door.
“Lamp at the door” means outside is light and inside is the light.
And where [do] you stand? You stand at the meeting point of outside and
‘It is the relationship of out and in—inside light, outside
light. You stand in the middle of it. The whole Vedic Literature is dedicated
to this silent level of Total Knowledge, which breathes Total Knowledge
of outside and Total Knowledge of inside on the junction point,
the meeting point. This meeting point is available between the first letter
and how the first letter becomes the gap. There is the meeting point;
it's the meeting point.
‘The definition of knowledge is Veda; the definition of Veda is
“Mantra Brahmanyor Veda Nam Deyah”. Mantra and Brahmana together—two things. Mantra and Brahmana—these two things constitute Ved, Total Knowledge. And it is there within “A”.
When we write this “A”, “I”, “U”—these
syllables emerging from “A”—they are within “A”.
‘And because one can't write one within the other, one within the other—eight
times they are—one within the other, one within the other, one within
the other. . . we are expressing them on the ground [in] how the buildings of
the Constitution of the Peace Government are being built, which Dr Hagelin announced
when he laid the foundation stone of this city in the centre point
of America—the law demands that the capital be established in the centre
point of America. Not great wisdom is needed [to understand] why the centre
point. The central point means that if you want to reach any place, you
can reach easily any place, equally easily, so that your parental role is equally
effective for the whole territory. That is why it's [at the] centre point.
It is obvious, and it does not need much logic to say why it's
[at the] centre. This is the law. From the centre you can reach everywhere more
easily, more quickly. Your parental role could be equally distributed in
all directions, if you sit in the centre.
‘I was very happy that day, when I heard Dr Hagelin while doing this [say] that I am laying
the structure—a structure, a building, housing—where the abstract,
omnipresent, omniscient, transcendental, self-referral totality of Natural
Law will be seen by the people in one building. It will be explained
in the next gap. Another building—it will be explained in the building
[and] another gap, another gap.
‘What we have is a commentary of the Ved in the structure of the
Ved itself. No one man, no one, can comment on the Ved. It is so enormously
total in silence and dynamism both together—silence and dynamism.
Only by being it, it expresses itself. From a distance, you can't see
it. You have to be it. Only in the state of Being is the process of becoming.
Only in the noun, the verb is available. In the doer, the doing is available.
‘That is why we say: noun is verb, and verb is noun. This is at the junction of the noun and verb. This is the miracle of the
grammar. Vedic grammar takes you onwards without losing your status in
the backwards. Back and forward, back and forward, it establishes you
on the junction point of the two characteristic qualities. These two characteristic
qualities, silence and dynamism, belong to the physiology, human physiology.
They belong to human mind. They belong to human intellect. They
belong to human ego. They belong to cosmic ego. They belong to Atma—the
‘When we are laying the foundation stone for a government to be
governed by the Constitution of the Universe, then we are preparing a
home for it in terms of its own self-referral dignity. And in the self-referral
dignity of the wholeness of the Constitution of the Universe, wholeness
of Natural Law is there.
‘Wholeness of Natural Law is there, as I said, in terms of an
absolute static statement, which is mathematics—no argument, nothing.
Ten—finished, it is ten. A hundred—finished, a hundred. This
absolute static way of expressing the infinite dynamism of the unified
state of unity and diversity.
‘This is Constitution of the Universe. Vedic scholars—they have been
reciting the Veda, and they have been defining the Ved in terms of Mantra
and Brahmana, in terms of the word and the gap and the word and the gap and the word and the gap and the word and the gap.
‘The commentaries of the Veda that have been made have been made
by human beings. What they have done is: they have mutilated the enormous,
unlimited comprehension of the field of Total Knowledge, which is silence
and dynamism together. It's beyond any human limitations of the field
‘They have been reciting. What they have been reciting is word and
the gap and the word and the gap and the word and the gap—as they got
from their parents, as they got
from their parents, as they got
from their parents. How they got it? Through the oral tradition of
the infinite flexibility of the language. Infinite flexibility of
the language had the characteristic qualities of unity and diversity together,
and they flow. They flow from infinity to point value, from point to infinity,
infinity to point.
‘There is a theory of the universe: pulsating universe—pulsating.
What is this pulsating? From infinity to its point, from point to infinity.
This is how the force of gravity pulsates within itself. That is the governor
of the universe. In that is expressed the Constitution of the Universe—from one to many, from many to one, from one to many, many to one.
‘These are the two characteristic qualities of one law. And one
law is the state of law, which silently moves. From where to where? From
totality of manifest infinity to totality of the unmanifest reality, from
unmanifest to manifest—that junction point, that junction point, that junction point.
‘That junction point has been hit by these expressions of the nonflexible
state of expression, mathematical numbers, this theory of numbers. Number
theory is one way of expressing the total Constitution of the Universe
with two values together—silence and dynamism. And the other:
two values together in language, which flows, flows, flows, language, language. The language—then
it has to flow. What flows in the language is silence. Silence flows,
silence flows, silence flows—silence.
‘These two systems of gaining knowledge: through number
systems and through flow of syllables, flow of words. It is enormously
perfect, and now with the grace of our spiritual master, His Divinity—we say, "Divinity", with authority, we say, "Divinity"—Brahmananda
Hagelin is that extraordinary genius in this age, who has the whole knowledge
in terms of the expressions of the path, which is Vedic expression, and
whole knowledge in terms of this mathematical reality—non-changeability.
So, we have from both sides, in Dr Hagelin. He alone could say, “Yes, I am
putting [this] to the direct vision of the people—on the ground, on the
building, on brick and mortar—the structure of the Constitution
of the Universe.”
‘All glory to the time, the changing phase of time. We have a scientist
who speaks both languages: ancient science, where the scientist and
the science—the technologies—they are all one; and the modern also,
where also the scientist and this, they are all one, they are all one.
‘Dr Hagelin, your expressions satisfy on both levels: the mathematical,
inflexible, complete authority on its own; and language flowing in itself,
with complete authority in itself. What a wonderful time for mankind.
Now, with this, we are out to create invincibility to every nation, and that on
the basis of invincibility lively in a few people in a nation—a
few hundred, a few thousand, one thousand, whatever. Just that
is our authority, and that is our joy, and that is our world.
‘Bless them, Dr. Hagelin. And answer all their questions’
