Dhanur Veda

Dhanur Veda

Dhanur-Veda is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the INVINCIBLE and PROGRESSIVE qualities involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Dhanur-Veda comprises the specific sets of laws of Nature that are engaged in promoting the quality of Devata — the process of observation, the dynamism of observing in the witnessing quality of Rishi — within the Samhita level of consciousness, providing a structure to the eternally silent, self-referral, self-sufficient, fully awake state of consciousness, which is intimately personal to everyone. (complete table of qualities)

Dhanur-Veda represents the invincible quality of pure consciousness, which is able to always maintain its undisturbed, unchanging, and self-referral pure nature while upholding all transformations in the manifest creation.

In the physiology, it is represented by all that maintains continuity within evolution and change. This is seen in the DNA, the biochemical and enzymatic reactions, the immune system, and the skeletal system.

on the importance of
regular practice of the
Transcendental Meditation technique:

Rk Veda says that the ability to utilize this organizing power of Natural Law — to set in motion the infinite organizing power on the level of individual life — is available to anyone whose awareness is awake in this quality of dynamic silence — self-referral silence — self-referral dynamic silence — silence of Transcendental Consciousness —

Translation: For those established in self-referral consciousness, the infinite organizing power of the Creator becomes the charioteer of all action.
