Celebrates Krishna Janmashtami—
Maharishi: ‘Today on the birthday of Shri Krishna—the birthday of Total Knowledge incarnate—birthday, we would say, of the eternal administrator of life on earth, we have the opportunity to offer ourselves to those rising waves of bliss which come to us as the light of dawn of a new administrator of the world, Shri Krishna, Total Knowledge incarnate, total silence incarnate, total dynamism potential incarnate, total Kriya Shakti, Gyan Shakti, Samanvayat, Purna Brahm.
‘The totality of knowledge in silence, self-referral totality of
knowledge in potential of dynamism—capability, creativity, infinite
creativity—that administers all life on earth. Today is the day,
most fortunate day of all the days of the year.
‘It is very difficult, it is very difficult, for life in India to forget that unity is reality. Diversity is an aspect of it, as long as unity has not become a breath of life—the reality of every action. Year after year this day comes, the birthday of Krishna.Year after year this day comes, the birthday of Krishna—the reality of absolute Union of everything. And "absolute union of everything" means everything.
‘Whatever controversial they may be in themselves, but unity of them is an eternal reality and that is Krishna. On one side "Krishna" means black. "Black" means nothingness. On the other side, everything else is a manifestation of this nothingness. Everything is a manifestation of this nothingness.
is the reality of total unity. Total unity means no diversity, and that
means all the opposite values coming in perfect union with each other,
all the infinite diversity meets at a point of eternal unity, and eternal
unity is that which is all reality. "Sarvam Kalvidam Brahm"—all
this is total Brahm, total Krishna. Krishna—all silence with the
eternal lively potential in it—and this is life.
‘Absolute totality of knowledge inherent with the total dynamism—this is Veda, the flow of total Constitution of the Universe. Veda, the flow of Total Knowledge, is the flow of the Constitution of the Universe. And by "flow" it means it is silent, but it is full of life. It is not inertia. It is not inertia. Total life, totality of life, totality of Being, in how many words we can say it—it is the summation of all differences, the unified state of all life.
‘Thanks to the evolution of knowledge, [in] the present day. . . . research in the reality of knowledge from the physical aspect of life—"physical aspect of life" means from the level of diversity of life. Modern science today is proud of having investigated into the reality of the Unified Field.
Field is the scientific discovery from all the physical sciences [of]
that reality which is eternally sung in the Vedic expressions. We don't
call it a literature. Literature has a different meaning about it. Literature
means intellectual interpretations of this and this and this. Veda is
its own commentary. It stands on its own. That is why Veda is the singsong
of Brahm. Veda is the singsong of Brahm.
'Today is the birthday of Krishna, birthday of Krishna. That
unmanifest total reality is blossoming in the light of all life. All life
in the universe today is breathing the birth of Krishna, the dawn of unity,
the reality of all diversity.
'Eight is the divided nature of the ninth Prakriti. Ninth Prakriti is the unified Prakriti. "Prakriti" means the nature. Nine is a unity of eight. Nine is a unity of eight—still in the field of action, the field of action.
'What is the tenth? The Vedic
expression is ''Thou art the Tenth''. What is ''Thou''? Purusha. Silent
reality of Purusha. What is Purusha? Purusha is self-witnessing quality.
Self-witnessing quality is the Purusha. And Self-witnessing being a verb,
the Purusha is the subject of the verb. Experiencer, experiencing, and
experienced—all the three are in unified state, and that unified state
has been seen in terms of two qualities, the subject and the object.
The subject—the seer—process of seeing, and the object of
sight. Seer, seeing, and sight. Knower, knowing, and known. Knower, knowing,
'When the Atma is fully awake in itself, Vedic expression
for that is "Ayam Atma Brahm"—this Atma is Brahm. Otherwise Atma
is the Self of everyone. Self of everyone is the same Self of everyone.
The Self of everyone is the same Self of everyone that has knower, knowing,
and known. The doer—the actor—acting, and action. So the whole
multiple expression is unified in a state, and that is the ultimate reality—Brahm—and
that is the Krishna and awakening of human awareness. Appreciating that,
that is the day today.
'Science is complete when it is flowing and coming to a decision of unity, and not flowing and coming to a decision of unity. This approach of ''not flowing'' is the approach of number system—one, two three, four. One is always one, two is two, three is always three. No flow in the number system—no flow. This is Vedic mathematics. But non-flow also is competent to put things together and come to the same decision.
'He who is numbering,
he himself is knower, knowing, and known—the three values. Always the
three values are there, through the number system, through the language.
And this is expression of the Constitution of the Universe in terms of
Veda. Constitution of the Universe means administrator of all diversity
coming to unity and unity diversifying itself to diversity. Diversity
unified, unity diversified. Both these things together are Brahm. They
are Krishna. Both these things together are Krishna. Both these things
together are Krishna.
'This is a secret of how Purusha is tied down to
Prakriti, and Prakriti is tied down to Purusha. It is eternal reality.
Purusha and Prakriti are inseparable. Unity and diversity are inseparable.
They are two opposite values coming together, but they are inseparable.
They are separate, but they are not separate. This is the vision of today's
day. This is the importance of today's day—the birthday of Krishna.
'The Vedic procedure
of performing Puja brings out the unity of the three values—knower,
knowing, and known—Purusha, Prakriti, and divided Prakriti. Purusha,
undivided Prakriti always inherent in the nature of Purusha, and divided
Prakriti is a characteristic quality of the unified Prakriti.
'Diversity is unity, unity is diversity, diversity is unity. All this is expressed in so many ways—Rk Ved, Yajur Veda, Sama Veda, Atharva Veda, Vedangas, Upangas, Upavedas, all Upanishads, Aranyakas, Brahmanas. All this Itihas and Smriti and Puranas, the whole Vedic literature and not only this, the source of the Veda in the Smritis. A big huge literature of the Smritis. It is the Smritis that become Shrutis.
'It is the mental
reverberation that comes to become appreciated by the senses, all five
senses, and put to action by the five organs of action. So the whole basis
of action in the Smritis which is the Shruti which is heard. What is heard
is the reverberation of mind which is Smriti, memory. So the whole Vedic
literature is the expression of memory, that is Smriti, waves. And waves
are the reality of the silent ocean.

the designing of their home and working places in terms of Vastu Vidya,
Vedic Vidya. And this is our programme to transform the world for all
