October 2004 Press Conference Highlights
Guru Dev. It will be a joy to answer any questions from the press. For
fifty years we have talked about the same invincibility present in the
self-referral consciousness of everyone, Atma, the Unified Field.
‘I have declared Raam Raj. Raam Raj is the most ideal system of
administration by cosmic intelligence—the intelligence of Unity
Consciousness, all the laws of nature in their unified state. Now we are
establishing the cosmic, Vedic government of Raam Raj. Raam is Brahm.
Brahm is the totality of knowledge and action—all possibilities—which
is handling the orderly, ever-expanding universe.
‘We are establishing a system of administration in our dear world
which will be direct, straight, and prevention oriented. . . .
‘Times are different, as Dr Hagelin has announced. The science of
today is not the science of yesterday. Yesterday’s science was a
test-tube science with isolated investigations into the laws of nature.
But now, Totality, the unified state of all the laws of nature, has been
physically discovered. It has been discovered now, but that does not mean
that it came into being now. Total Natural Law is eternally there—millions
and billions of years. It is not that after 2000 years or 1600 years one
says, “This is my religion, his religion, and your religion.”
Fields of ignorance will always disappear, as darkness is seen disappearing
over and over again with the onset of the dawn of the sun.
‘We are establishing Raam Raj, the most ideal system of administration,
and are creating capitals so that in the future all the children in our
world will have prevention-oriented administration. . . .
‘There is a possibility that no one will have to face fear, ill
health, weakness, failure, or anything negative in life. That is the royal,
divine government we are out to create.
‘It has begun very well in America. All the nations will now be
saved by the Peace Government in America. The discovery of the Unified
Field reveals the constitution which will support, enrich, and glorify
any man-made constitution.
‘The other day when inaugurating Vedic America, Dr Hagelin said,
“Constitutions have to be rewritten.” He said that he as a
scientist has already written the constitution of every country on the
basis of the constitution of the infinitely expanded, galactic universe.
‘Each word that I am speaking is meaningful. The infinitely expanded,
infinitely ever-expanding, galactic, physical universe is being administered
by the Constitution of the Universe, the constitution of total Natural
Law, the will of God, which silently puts everything and everyone in the
‘How many suns, moons, stars, and galaxies are being run by the
government of the cosmos? Where is the constitution that runs it? The
Constitution of the Universe is ingrained in every grain of creation as
it governs the infinitely expanded and infinitely ever-expanding universe.
. . .
‘If there is darkness in the night, it does not have to continue
as darkness. Science is just two or three hundred years old, and the discovery
of the Unified Field is five, ten, twenty years old. But the Self, the
Atma, the transcendental field of reality is the same in everyone. Whether
the body calls itself an American, British, German, Indian, or Chinese
body, it does not matter. The house can be of anything, but the indweller
of the house is the same thing—the eternal, immortal, blissful Self.
In the Vedic Literature it is called Brahm, Totality, Unity Consciousness,
Brahman Consciousness. The whole Vedic Literature is full of knowledge
about it and is the golden, lighted lamp for everyone.
‘No one can say, “I belong to a 2000-year-old religion,”
or “No, no—not 2,000 years—I belong to a 1500-year-old
religion,” or “No, no—not 1,500 years—I belong
to a two-year-old religion.” You may belong to anything, but definitely
you belong to the eternity of time beyond time and space. Where do 200
or 2,000 years hang? They hang in the infinity of time.
‘One could follow anything, but if one follows one’s own inner
reality, it is the Self in whatever language—Spanish, Greek, Chinese,
Indian, or Sanskrit. In any language, the content is the same—enlightenment—whether
we say “Paramatma” in one language, “God” in another
language, or “Natural Law” in another language. Speaking the
same thing in different languages does not change the content.
‘Life is the same, whether it is the life of an American, an Iranian,
or a Chinese. A Chinese life is for how long? Maybe 400 or 300 years.
An American life is for how long? Maybe 100, 150, 200, or 500 years. Where
was he before that, and where is he going to be after these 200 years?
The Self is the same. The Unified Field is eternal life. This is the reality
of my life, your life, a man’s life, a child’s life, or an
old man’s life.
‘Do not make a mistake and think, “I am American.” You
are American—a very beautiful American—but inside is the same
consciousness, same reality, and same light of God as in any nation’s
‘It is a shame that every government today does not know, and in
the past did not know, how to protect its people. No ruler knows how to
protect the people. No government has prevention capability. They can
prevent neither disaster nor enemies.
‘Killing an enemy does not mean saving a nation. I am speaking to
the world press. Killing an enemy is not issuing a certificate of long
life to the nation. You are losing your own youth in the name of administering
‘Where is the administration of the nation? Where is the government
that can say, “Yes, we can save our nation”? No government
can save the nation and no government in the past has saved the
nation. . . .
‘We want to see government with a parental role for the ruled. Where
is the government that can claim, “We have a parental role”?
They are bullies engaging their own people to die in the mirage of security
for the nation. When the youth is gone, where is the nation? This institution
of government is absolutely full of stupidity and ignorance and has been
for quite a long time.
‘We are establishing a government of total Natural Law—a government
of Unity Consciousness. A scientist with a reliable intellect, has created
an awareness of the same one thing existing on all levels of manifestation
and beyond manifestations in the transcendental field, the cosmic field.
This same one thing is the one field of consciousness.
tradition of Vedic Masters and this knowledge have created two brilliant
scientists in this scientific age. One is Raja Raam, a physiologist, who
has presented all the physical values of existence in terms of consciousness.
‘Now there is a chance, for those who want it, to have a parental
role for their people. But those who want to continue to be brutal to
their people can say, “I am the ruler, you are the ruled, and I
must send you to jail.” By punishing a man and sending him to jail,
the government only records its inability to rightly govern. Governing
through punishment is wrongly governing. This epidemic of wrong government
must be discarded, discredited, and thrown out of use.
‘This is what we are going to do. We are not going to ask anyone
to do it. We are silently creating that effect. Dr Hagelin has very rightly
called the effect the administration of a Peace Government. Administration
through the Unified Field is administration by peace. The administration
of peace is the administration of harmony. All the diversity is put together.
In Sanskrit, the Vedic language, this is called Brahm. Brahm is the word
for the Unified Field.
‘When the Unified Field is discovered, nothing new is discovered.
It is the same old Brahm, same old Totality. Totality is nothing new.
Only it was out of sight; now it is brought to sight. This is the uncovering
of Total Knowledge. . . .
‘We are creating an ideal state of administration of Totality, administration
of Brahm, “Raam Brahm Paramartha Rupa.” We are creating a
Global Country of World Peace, a global administration, and establishing
capitals of the Global Country of World Peace. Very soon, the whole atmosphere
of the world, world consciousness, is going to be so coherent, so together
that all these differences will simply fall away. . . .
‘We have the technology and have started in America—Vedic
America. Dr Hagelin has beautifully described all that is going to be
in Vedic City in the middle of America. We are going to have groups of
8,000 people practising Yogic Flying in different places in the world.
‘The world has to know that Yoga is just the Unified Field. The
Unified Field is the force of gravity that puts all things together. The
force of gravity has a miraculous character: it puts all things together
and maintains all things separately. This is the almighty power of God
which maintains unity and diversity. It feeds unity and it feeds diversity.
Diversity is no danger to unity; unity is no damage to diversity.
‘This is the Peace Government which has complete possibilities.
It is a field of all possibilities in the field of administration. This
is not gossip. Such an administration exists. We are going to adopt it
in our life, and all the millions of generations of mankind have adopted
‘Those who have adopted it have seen time in terms of Satyuga, Kaliyuga,
Dwapara, and Treta. Kaliyuga is this time period. It is like the onset
of the day: a small, small light becomes bigger and bigger until it becomes
midday; then it fades and fades until the onset of darkness and the darkness
increases; then the light becomes more and more. This cycle of time continues
without damaging unity or diversity. It is the natural diversity that
maintains unity; it is the unity that maintains diversity. Countries have
to take notice of it, learn it, and take advantage of it. . . .
‘We have the knowledge, and we are going to use the knowledge to
create a few groups of 8,000 Yogic Flyers here, there, and everywhere
in the world. Then, automatically, as the dawn of the sun eliminates the
darkness, we will not have to fight with these people.’
Written Constitution of the Universe
Hagelin: ‘The first question concerns the Constitution
of the Universe and its practicality. According to the dictionary, a national
constitution is “a written document that contains the basic principles
and laws of a nation that determine the powers and duties of the government
and guarantee certain rights to the people.” However, Maharishi
has said during his news conferences that the Constitution of the Universe
is not a written document, but rather it is an abstract field of consciousness
that people experience during meditation.
‘How can an abstract field administer the day-to-day life of the
people? Is there also a need for a written constitution for the nation—a
code of written laws to promote or prohibit certain kinds of human behaviour?
Even religions provide written codes of conduct, such as the Laws of Manu
or the Ten Commandments, that are spelled out clearly for the people to
read and follow.’
takes me back many years to when I was asked exactly the same thing by
the British press who had sent an investigator. He felt that there should
be something written and asked, “Where is the cosmic constitution
written?” I said, “The cosmic constitution is written, and
its writing is not erasable. It is written in a language which can never
be erased. Only, you have not been exposed to it in your education of
‘The Constitution of the Universe is the field of Total Knowledge.
We can talk about it in terms of the Unified Field. The Unified Field
is a written document. You can write it, read it, and draw the meaning
from it. You can have it as a total concentrated collectedness of all
laws, and you can have it in differentiated values of the knowledge of
‘So it is written. Now I can tell you where it is written. It is
written in the unerasable, transcendental language. I will give you
an example. Where is the constitution of a tree written? Where is it written
how the tree sprouts, grows, becomes branches, leaves, and fruit, and
then again becomes a tree? It is written in the hollowness of the seed.
Those who see it, see it. Those who do not see it have to see it with
those who can see it.
‘Who sees it? A gardener sees it; a gardener knows it. He knows
how to handle the hollowness of the seed and what manure and water to
give it. These are the laws. Where are they written? They are written
in the memory of the gardener, his father, his teacher, or his teacher’s
‘How far back can we go? Who knows the constitution of the banyan
tree and how it grows? Somebody knew. When would somebody have known?
Ever since the banyan tree started. That means it is written in the memory
from father to son, or we can say from the master to disciple. Where it
is written? It is written in empty space. Those who know it, they know
it. They use it and can successfully grow the tree.
‘When we come back to the writing of it, where is the Veda written?
It is written in the transcendental field of self-referral intelligence.
That is the Self. It is written in the Self. And it is written in the
Self in terms of one word. Memory. It is called Smriti—memory.
‘Whose memory? The memory of what was before. Memory is always of
something in creation which existed before. For example, a banyan tree
is written somewhere. Where it is written? It is written in empty space.
What do you call this empty space? Dr Hagelin’s scientific word
is fluctuations—quantum mechanical fluctuations. Something is written
‘Veda is a written document, but something prior to its writing
is in terms of memory. The Vedic Literature is traced back to the
source, the transcendent field of self-referral Being. From Being, it
becomes. This means from the unmanifest it manifests. Where is the writing
of it? The writing is in the first syllable of the Veda, which is “A”.
The expansion of “A” is the expansion of the whole Veda. A
further expansion of the Veda is the whole physiology, and then there
is contraction back into the Unified Field again.
‘This is the discovery of His Majesty Raja Raam, the first ruler
of the Age of Enlightenment, the first ruler of the Global Country of
World Peace. In modern terms he is a physiologist, an expert in physiology.
He says simply that every aspect of the physiology is an expression of
consciousness. It is first like a vapour, then like flowing water, then
like soft, freezing, snow, and then like harder ice. These are the different
values of its expression from aerial to liquid to solid to very solid
to the whole changing universe, with the
It is the Unified Field and
the diversified field.
‘Regarding the answer to if it is written: Yes, the Constitution
of the Universe is written. If you ask a Vedic Pandit, he will say, “A,
AK”. He will say, “A, Agnimile Purohitam Yagyasya Devam Ritvijam.”
He will recite the whole Veda from beginning to end. Ending the Rig Veda,
he will go to Sama Veda, then Yajur Veda, Atharva Veda, all the Vedangas,
Upangas, all the Angas, and all Ayurveda. This is the Constitution of
the Universe, which is written out. The word for it is “Nitya Apaurusheya”.
These are the words of the Veda. “Nitya” means eternal. Something
which is eternal is certainly not made by anyone.
‘Coming back to the administration of this country 100 years ago,
20 or 2,000 people sat together and said, “All right, this will
be our constitution.” They wrote a man-made constitution. Whatever
nice things they knew, whatever good they knew for their children, they
wrote. Whatever they wrote, that was their written constitution.
‘But there is a constitution already inscribed in their self-referral
consciousness. It is written in self-referral consciousness, the language
of the Self, the language of intelligence. The language of intelligence
is written in the vowels—a, aa, i, ii, u, uu—and in terms
of the hymns called Mantras. They are honoured because infinite silence
is there coexisting with infinite dynamism. This is Shanti and Kriya.
Shanti relates to knowledge; dynamism relates to Shakti. Shanti with Shiva;
Kriya with Shakti. Shiva-Shakti. All the Devatas are in terms of silence
‘It is written out. One should know that the Constitution of the
Universe is written out, and it has been transferred from generation to
generation, from father to son. One could go back any length of time—millions
and billions of years to the beginning of creation. If the creation ever
began, from that time it is all written out, but written out in words.’
‘It is spoken words. The writing is how many years old? The people
used to write it by hand, however it is not the hand writing, but the
spoken word that is the Mantra. Vedic Mantra is spoken word. The spoken
word has been written out. The Constitution is written out; it is not
a mystery. It is only a mystery for those who do not know it.
‘This is why the lack of the knowledge of silence and dynamism together
has created a mess in the relationship between man and man, master and
disciple, ruler and the ruled, and this and
. . . Now we are coming to something truthful.
‘I could say a thousand times—if anything could be authentic,
it is the Veda as the Constitution of the Universe. The phrase for this
authenticity is, “Shruti is the Praman.” “Praman”
is the proof. Veda is the supreme proof. If you want authenticity and
want to prove it, there is the Veda. How many values of the Veda are there?
Atma is the source of Veda—Rig, Sama, Yajur, Atharva. A huge amount
of literature is there.
‘Veda is such a very beautiful food, saviour, and protector. It
has life-giving principles. All these dos and don’ts of every religion
come from the Vedic texts. Where is the authenticity of why one should
not eat something that is called poison? The authenticity is in the Veda.
For all times, you are prohibited to eat dirty things. You are not allowed
to eat the mud, but you are allowed to eat some tender petals of the lotus.
It grows from the mud, but it is out of the mud. All the dos and don’ts
come from the eternal knowledge of the totality of life.
is on two levels: the manifest level and the unmanifest level. In Dr Hagelin’s
words, the Unified Field is a combination of two values: silence and dynamism.
It is written not only in letters, but also in numbers. All the number
systems—one, two, three, four, five—account for the reality,
the changing values, and the relationship of one value with the other
in the field of knowledge.
the Unified Field, there is all unity and all diversity in both kinds
of language. Language in numbers—number systems, equations, mathematics—and
language in words. “Unified Field” is a word that has a meaning
that explains its characteristics. Or there is one, two, three, billions.
Or unity, one or zero, one big zero; everything starts from zero.
‘Number-wise, alphabet-wise, or sound-wise, in any way, the Constitution
of the Universe is written. Because it is not in their education, people
do not know this, and because they do not know the Constitution of the
Universe, they are not able to live in harmony with the universe. Not
living in harmony with Natural Law, they break their heads here, there
and everywhere. Very wrong principles have become the guiding light in
terms of the administrative values. The same thing is in education; the
days of test-tube science should be over. The whole thing is a muddle.
‘Now Raam Raj is going to be established. “Raam Raj”
means the administration of total Natural Law, Brahm Raj—"Raam
Brahm Paramartha Rupa." That is the real Sva Raj—the Raj of
the Self. . . .
‘We are going to establish a peaceful world. A really good time
of brilliance and knowledge—Total Knowledge—is already dawning.
We will be starting to train and educate these administrators everywhere.
They will have a small group and practise their own enlightenment themselves.
As a result of this, they will have a coherence-creating influence in
their national consciousness so that every country will enjoy invincibility.’
Question: The Practicality of Invincibility
Hagelin: ‘This next question is on the practicality of
invincibility. We live in violent times; one nation can rain destruction
on another from thousands of miles away with pinpoint accuracy through
guided missiles. If this is the case, how is it possible for one country
to really be invincible, if its enemy remains violent and committed to
destruction? How will a group of peace-creating experts in one country
prevent another country from launching a missile attack on its people?
Is not the peaceful country dependent on the enemy to also become peaceful?’
a peaceful country depends on its own peace. It does not depend on others.
There are many examples from science and from the knowledge of the Veda.
We were talking of that level of vacuum fluctuations. A vacuum is something
which is all-pervading, an unmanifest field. Fluctuations in that field
are invincible. Dr Hagelin has very beautifully laid emphasis on the independence
and invincibility of these fluctuations. They are in themselves—completely
independent of anyone. They are not dependent on anyone. They are dependent
on what was before—memory.
‘This theme of invincibility is derived from that value. Whatever
was before, a million years ago, the same was before ten million years
ago, and the same was before two thousand years ago. The reality—the
vacuum fluctuation—is not a time-bound, situation-bound, or circumstance-bound
reality which will ever change.
‘You are raising a good example, that the missile will hit from
maybe ten thousand miles, but from the level of vacuum fluctuations you
can hit from billions of miles away, because on that level there is no
restriction, no barrier. We call it a slippery ground. The Unified Field
is beyond space-time boundaries, so there are no boundaries. A missile
can maybe go up to ten thousand miles because it meets with resistance.
But a missile shot by thought from the level of the Smriti—the level
of vacuum fluctuations, which we understand as the source of thought—can
hit the entire infinity. A desire at the source of thought can continue
to hit the entire infinity all the time because it moves on a field which
is frictionless and it does not have to meet with the resistance of space-time
‘This is the advantage of this science of consciousness. The science
of consciousness is infinitely invincible and powerful because it functions
on a level which is not, and cannot be, obstructed by space, time, or
anything. It is a field of no resistance—unity, that unity which
has all. On a highway, there are exits: one exit, two exits, three exits,
four exits, five exits. The field has its own exits, infinite in number,
but on a ground of no resistance. This is that level of fluctuations.
This is the function of Unity Consciousness.
is the efficiency of a governmental policy from that level of invincibility.
The government wants you to do something and you can only do it, that
is all. If you are able to violate a policy, that means the government’s
policy is not from that efficient level where your little individuality
cannot obstruct it.
‘This is the government we want to create. This is the government
of the universe. The silent government of the ever-expanding universe
is the almighty government which is absolutely prevention oriented. Nothing
can obstruct it. The policy of the government is such that no one can
violate it. It is not that if you violate it, you will be punished, but
by nature you cannot violate it. That is the governmental policy which
we want to create.
‘This is our Raam Raj, our most ideal system of administration which
we are going to achieve through Vedic Education, Vedic Consciousness,
Unity Consciousness, Brahmi Consciousness, enlightened consciousness.
This is the government we want to create. It is absolutely simple and
easy through the blessings of our tradition of Vedic Masters. This is
the reality of the transcendental field of life which we have been teaching
to the world for fifty years. Now we are talking of that level of invincibility
on a collective level.
‘My purpose is not to criticize any government, but to tell them
they can be more successful, most successful. The government does not
have to change. The government will always change if it is not competent
to prevent disorders or suffering. But by educating the people to function
from that level of all possibilities, where silence is infinite and dynamism
is infinite, and total Natural Law is lively in human awareness, the governing
process will be completely automatic.
‘This is automation in administration, not law enforcement in administration.
Law enforcement is bad administration; it is the blind leading the blind.
We want to break the tradition of the blind leading the blind. Now every
government is going to enjoy the invincibility and the strength of every
other government. Every government will enjoy the wisdom, creativity,
friendship, and all the good of every other government. That will be the
supreme achievement of every government.
‘Today, the achievement of the government is, “Oh, I have
more power, so you remain under me. I will give you some money, and you
obey me.” It is slavery—the business of slavery. It is not
the parental role of the government. We want to bring in Raam Raj—the
administration of Unity Consciousness.
‘I am repeating to the world press that I do not depend on the governments.
I am creating the effect with a small number of people here and there.
They will automatically generate through their own daily routine of enlightenment
that most desirable level of harmony and invincibility in their own countries.
‘It is a very beautiful thing and enjoyable to talk about, to establish,
and to give to the world for all present and all future.
is possible for every single individual to function from that level where
stars, suns, and galaxies are being governed. This is human possibility.
This is an educated man of our Vedic America, Vedic India, Vedic China,
or any Vedic country. “Vedic” means full of Veda, on the ground
of the Cosmic Constitution—the total value of knowledge involved
in every thought, speech, and action of everyone.
‘Great glory to Guru Dev. Raam Raj Vijayante Taram—Peace Government
‘The picture that has been painted today for the world press is
so delightful and beautiful. We will materialize it soon, everywhere,
in all parts of the world.’
