During a recent global celebration, following Puja [traditional Vedic ceremony of gratitude] and Vedic Recitation in celebration of Vigneshwara, the Devata* [aspect of Natural Law] to eliminate all obstacles, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi spoke about the removal of obstacles in both individual life and in the destiny of mankind so that invincibility shines in national life everywhere.
'Where are the obstacles?' Maharishi said. 'Between Jiva [individuality] and Brahm [Totality], if there are obstacles that separate Jiva and its own potential Brahm.
'The entire Puja to Vigneshwara today took us from the very gross through all the subtle levels of travel between a mixed-up world of diversity to pure Unity. From step to step, from complications to purity, [there was] elimination of complexities in order that we begin to enjoy our steadfast existence in the field of Brahm.
'All that exists between Atma and Brahm, Vigneshwara, through the Puja today—one Puja, clears the passage. [It's a] great day for us: from the world of conflicts and uncomfortable complexities to the world of purity, from the field of Be-coming to become the field of Being, all the obstacles [are] cleared today.
'It has been a great day for us with the Puja to Guru Dev [Maharishi's spiritual teacher]. This is the Vedic Calendar of Veda Bhumi Bharat [India, the land of the Veda]. . . Lord Vigneshwara has brought us to the field of pure Being.
Today [we are] having the day of clearing—clear, clear, clear, clear—through the whole field of Veda, Pure Knowledge, to the end of diversity, [which is] ruled by the Devatas that are all the way through the Veda to Vedanta [the Vedic Literature pertaining to Brahm]—from the Veda to Vedanta, from multiplicity to Unity.
'[It was] a very special performance and the Pandits from India have helped us. It's like when you sit in the train and the train helps us [to get] from one station to the other, from one station to the other. Like that, all that the Pandits have chanted has been just like a travel from the present level to the destination level . . . .
'The glory of today, the worship of Vigneshwara today, helped by Puja to Guru Dev, has taken us from complexity to simplicity. All the obstacles that make the whole path complex and rather long and diversified, the [recitation] of the Vedic mantra in the worship of Lord Vigneshwara—the very name of the Lord is Vigneshwara—that is the Lord of all the obstacles. That takes us directly from here to here, not from here to there, but from here to here.
'The passage is through the Veda. And where is Veda? Veda is in the Atma [the Self], from 'A' to 'M' and 'M' to 'A', [the syllables of Atma and also the first syllables of Rk Veda]. Just this area—from 'A' to 'M', from 'M' to 'A'—'Atma', 'Atma', 'Atma.'
'So today has been the day of clearing, clearing, clearing the passage, and the long journey from infinite diversity to absolute Unity has been cut short by the elimination of obstacles by whom? By the lord of purification, Lord Vigneshwara.
The Devatas are like various aspects of transforming agencies. At every step, at every step, [there is] innumerable, innumerable performing necessary to cross beyond the ocean of diversity, and that is with the help of, with the Grace of, with the kindness of Lord Vigneshwara, the Lord of eliminating obstacles.
[It is a] great day for our aspirations to establish Raam Raj, the rule of Raam [the rule of Total Natural Law]. It's a beautiful day, clearing the destiny of mankind so that all the quality of national life everywhere shines through invincibility. All Glory to Guru Dev. Jai Guru Dev.
'We continue our march free from obstacles through the Grace of Lord Vigneshwara, through the Grace of Guru Dev. All Glory to Guru Dev. Guru Dev, Brahmananda Saraswati, Vijayante-Taram [Victory to Guru Dev]. Lord Vigneshwara Vijayante-Taram. Guru Dev, Brahmananda Saraswati, Vijayante-Taram.
* Maharishi has also recently explained ('Maharishi celebrates...') that Devata refers to 'the level of the subtle field of dynamism in the transcendental field that is called Devata. All Devatas are the expressions of the eternal silence. . . .'
