The Achievements article continues:
As Maharishi wrote in Science of Being and Art of Living, ''All the rituals of the various religions are like the body, and the practice of Transcendental Meditation is like the spirit. Both are necessary, they should go hand in hand. One will not survive without the other'' (p. 251).
In addition, Maharishi has explained that for religious people, the experience of pure consciousness will result in a stronger appreciation of their religion and a deeper understanding of their scriptures and the scriptures of all religions. They will begin to experience the Unity that harmonizes all the differences and this will result in peace and fulfillment.
What religion describes as the Light of God, physics calls the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature. Maharishi Vedic Science refers to it as the Unity of Knower, Knowing, and Known—Samhita of Rishi, Devata, and Chhandas. ''Maharishi has often explained that although the terminologies are different, they all refer to the same one Ultimate Reality,'' says Dr. Finkelstein.
Dr. Finkelstein also emphasized that the most direct way to experience that divine Ultimate Reality is through the regular practice of Maharishi's Technologies of Consciousness because ''they bring the mind, heart and physiology to the full experience of the Light of God, pure consciousness; it is this experience that makes every day a Holy day.''
''My Holiday wish is for people of all religions to begin the practice of Transcendental Meditation, so that the Light and Love of God can be effortlessly experienced by all,'' says Dr. Finkelstein. ''This experience, established in human life, will bring God's Heaven on to earth.''
