Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler* of the Global Country of World Peace, explains the reality of Brahmi Chetana—Brahman Consciousness—from the perspective of Maharishi's Vedic Science. Maharaja brings out Maharishi's description of this highest level of human development in terms of silence and dynamism 'zooming forth' into the senses and the objects of the senses, and everything being unified through the mechanics of feeling.
Continuing his address to the Global Celebration of Guru Purnima on 7 July 2009, in MERU, Holland, Maharaja posed the question: Where can we locate Brahmi Chetana, and how is it possible to understand it from the perspective of the intellect, the ego, the senses, and the Self?
In Unity Consciousness, he said, dynamism and silence are unified, are one reality. How can we have something more than acknowledging that all aspects of dynamism are truly being lived on the basis of perfect silence; and that silence and dynamism are one and the same reality?
Maharaja went on to explain that the intellect has reached its fullest value of development in Unity Consciousness; it has become fully blossomed, fully awake to its nature. Even its discriminating power, which separates in its nature, has surrendered to the reality of the existence of the opposite values.
Maharaja referred to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's explanation of Brahmi Chetana as expressed in one of the Brahma Sutra [an aspect of the Vedic Literature]: Tat tu samanvayat—the value of summation, of putting together, of unification. That value of summation, of unification, is the value that allows the individual to see Unity in all aspects of dynamism, even as they are separate from each other.
'So there is the perception, the reality, the acceptance of the value of expressions of Natural Law, but acknowledging them all together at the same time as being unified value,' Maharaja said.
He then asked, where does this ultimately come from, in terms of one's development, one's personality? Is it in the senses? Is it in the mind, in the intellect, in the ego? In fact it is in all of these together, he said
Maharaja said that the inward stroke [transcending, discussed in the previous article] that took us from the outer expression to realize the inner life—'takes an outer stroke, and that outer stroke takes us through ego, intellect, mind, and senses, as if the pure Being zooms forth into existence, and therefore zooms forth in the senses and the objects of the senses.
'So the inward stroke is complete in transcending,' he continued; it reaches certain levels of development in Cosmic Consciousness and God Consciousness, and comes to fulfilment in Unity Consciousness. The outer stroke finds its fulfilment in the outer senses, he said—'because we start from the outer to the inner, and in Brahmi Chetana we are really from the inner zooming into the outer. The outer value therefore gets totally unified and gets totally perceived with that level of Brahmi Chetana.'
Maharaja said that what this requires an individual to do is ' a very profound secret' that Maharishi brought out through his teaching. He said that Maharishi spoke about feelings on so many occasions, saying, 'What is the purpose of achieving something on the surface if the feelings are damaged?'
'We know this expression,' Maharaja continued, 'and this Guru Purnima we have Saha nav avatu, saha nau bhunaktu, unifying. We have Tat tu samanvayat, which is Brahmi Chetana—that comes from summation, from unification. We have Vasudhaiva kutumbakam [''the world is my family''].' [Maharaja was referring to historic videotapes of Maharishi's previous Guru Purnima addresses, which were played in the current Assembly.]
'Therefore,' he said, 'the flavour of this Guru Purnima comes to us on a very subtle level of feeling.
'Feeling does not deny the intellect,' Maharaja said. 'Actually, if you remember one of the beautiful talks of Maharishi, when he spoke about finest feeling and finest intellect—he said that finest intellect is finest feeling. So a person who is very deeply refined in their feeling, also has a very sharp intellect and decision-making, and the ability to discriminate.
'Feeling doesn't separate us from the senses; the senses are actually integrated in feeling,' Maharaja continued. 'Even in English, when you say you can feel something by a touch, or you can feel it inside yourself—what is the difference between the perception, the vision, the hearing, the senses, and the feeling? The difference is that a feeling is something that integrates.
'When you feel something, it takes into consideration all the expressions of the senses, all the expressions of the mind wandering around; all the intellect, fine discrimination; and all the ego, and unifies them. It puts them together. And what comes out of this ''soup'' is a certain feeling—it can be a feeling of joy, sadness, indifference, bliss, love . . . . And that feeling level is a level of integration, a unifying level, a synthesis of all the senses and intellect, ego, and mind, together experiencing one reality.
'In Brahmi Chetana, the putting together of all these values brings the experience of wholeness and Totality,' Maharaja said, 'which means any kind of expression, any kind of reality, when integrated on the level of senses, mind, intellect, and ego, it comes to a feeling of wholeness, a feeling of Totality—so that this summation, this Tat tu samanvayat, is totally matured in its understanding of wholeness and Totality.'
Global Good News will feature the conclusion of Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam's address in the coming days.
* Maharishi has explained that the functioning of Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam's administration of the Global Country of World Peace, supporting the creation of invincibility in 192 countries of the world, is that of administration through silence—the full awakening of total Natural Law and its infinite organizing power in the consciousness of every individual and in the whole collective consciousness of every nation and the entire world.
