Sharngadhar  Samhita

Sharngadhar  Samhita

Sharngadhar is one of the structuring dynamics of Rk Veda. It highlights the SYNTHESIZING quality involved in structuring Rk Veda. With reference to consciousness, Sharngadhar 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)

In the physiology, [Sharngadhar] corresponds to all the tissues and organs formed by the embryologic endoderm. They include the gut, the lungs, the liver, the pancreas, the thyroid, and the thymus.

The 3 divisions and 32 chapters of Sharngadhara Samhita correspond to the organization and structure of endodermal tissues. There are 32 types of endodermal tissues.

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

Silent dynamism is self-referral performance — action from the settled state of mind — action from Transcendental Consciousness — action in silence, the self-interacting dynamics of Transcendental Consciousness.

Action performed by an unsettled mind — a wavy mind — utilizes a limited potential of Natural Law, which means limited human resources, spontaneously giving rise to mistake-prone action.

Action performed by a settled mind — Transcendental Consciousness — utilizes the total potential of the infinite organizing power of Natural Law, which means the total potential of human resources, giving rise to spontaneous right action.
