Excerpts from a talk by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on January 12, 1998.
‘Such a beautiful, complete science of totality: Vedic Science. This is what we want to give to the world in order that everyone may enliven that perfect, orderly administration of Natural Law in his own consciousness, in his own intelligence, in order to fulfil the aspiration of human life to know more, to do more, to achieve more, to do everything—all possibilities.
'It is completely possible for anyone to fulfil this innate desire to have the authority over the unbounded creative intelligence of Natural Law and let life flow in perfect order, flow in bliss, have waves of bliss in the ocean of life, from point to infinity.
‘At every step there is more and more evolution, more and more order, more and more bliss, more and more freedom, more and more possibilities. This is the characteristic of the administration through Natural Law: it is equally nourishing to all, equally supporting to all, equally available to all now through this Vedic tradition.
'The logic is very simple. Everyone who can think can certainly have the ability to be quiet. If the mind can move around, run about, and get tired, it always has the ability to sit and be quiet. So this skill is to bring the mind to one silent level of quietness, and this is called “collecting the mind”. This is called Yoga.
'Yogastah kuru karmani*, collect the mind from wandering. Remain in your Self, and then you are in the custody of total Natural Law, which is the Veda. Veda is not studied from books. Veda is not studied from commentaries. Veda is enlivened in one’s awareness. By what? Not by any commentary, not by anything except by having the intelligence be itself.
'Humanly conducted administration in the world is just laws of different countries according to their constitutions, which are humanly made. Well made, well meaning, but never enough to have order, because humanly structured laws cannot, due to their limitations, fulfil the desire of the unlimited people in the country. No government has succeeded in the history of governments to fulfil the desire of millions of people.
'So this enormous requirement of the administration, to fulfil the life of all the people, can be satisfied only by the administration of Natural Law; which fulfils the requirement of night and day, of sun, of moon, of galaxies, of stars, of planets—infinite diversity kept in perfect order, kept as if unified but still giving freedom for every individual to enjoy in bliss, in the small waves of happiness, to enjoy the bliss.
'It’s like this: a small ripple in the ocean has the basic potential of enjoying the total depth of the ocean, to ride a tidal wave. The potentiality is there. And this potentiality is developed in every human being through this Vedic education—where it’s not through reading, or studying, or remembering of anything, but waking up within oneself and spontaneously having a natural authority over the total organizing power of Natural Law.
*Yogasthah kuru karmani (Bhagavad-Gita, 2.48) Established in Being [Transcendental Consciousness, the Self], perform action.
