Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam
Professor Tony Nader M.D., Ph.D.

In the 400-year history of modern science, no event has matched the recent discovery by Raja Raam, the first ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, in either scope or significance.

Working under Maharishi’s guidance, Raja Raam has found that the forty branches of Veda and the Vedic Literature, which present the mechanics of the creation and evolution of Natural Law, are the fundamental basis and essential ingredient of the human physiology, and that there is a one-to-one correspondence between the structures and functions of the different branches of Vedic Literature and the structures and functions of the human physiology. To understand this discovery, we must first look at the nature and origin of the Vedic Literature.

The Unified Field of Natural Law

Modern science has located the home of all of the Laws of Nature as a Unified Field, which gives rise to and administers the entire universe through its own self-interacting dynamics. It describes this field as the unified source of the four fundamental forces of Nature, from which all force fields throughout the universe are derived.


This discovery is described mathematically by the Lagrangian of Superstring Theory, which presents the detailed structure of the Unified Field.

Maharishi’s Vedic Science identifies the Unified Field as an unbounded field of consciousness—an eternal, silent ocean of intelligence that underlies all forms and phenomena. This field of pure consciousness is the unified element in Nature on the ground of which the infinite variety of creation is continuously emerging, growing, and dissolving.

Maharishi has provided a profound account of how this purely abstract field expresses itself into material creation. In his description, he explains how fully awake, self-referral consciousness moves within itself, and in this self-interaction it unfolds its own, infinitely dynamic structure. This dynamic structure is the totality of all the Laws of Nature that create and administer creation; this same structure is found in the forty branches of Veda and the Vedic Literature.

Veda and the Vedic Literature in Human Physiology

This historical discovery is that the human physiology, including the DNA at its core, has the same structure and function as the holistic, self-sufficient, self-referral reality expressed in the forty branches of Veda and the Vedic Literature. He explains that each of the forty branches of Veda and the Vedic Literature can be located in both structure and function in the human physiology.


For example, Maharishi describes Vyakaran as the branch of the Vedic Literature that embodies the expanding quality of self-referral consciousness. The tendency of Veda to sequentially elaborate itself—to unfold from its first syllable to the forty branches of the Vedic Literature—is expressed by Vyakaran. Raja Raam locates the similarity between this expansive tendency and the function of the hypothalamus. The hypothalamus releases factors that activate the pituitary gland, neurohypophysis, and the autonomic nervous system. These releasing factors represent the expansion necessary for the evolution of the endocrine and autonomic response, which leads to biochemical and physiological responses that bring the system to a new state of balance.

Structurally the Ashtadhyayi, the principle text of Vyakaran, is comprised of 8 Adhyayas (or chapters) of 4 Padas (a metrical unit) each, totaling 32 Padas. Similarly, the hypothalamus is comprised of 8 regions—anterior, posterior, middle, and lateral, right and left—with 4 nuclei each, making 32 nuclei, corresponding to the 32 Padas of the Ashtadhyayi. Raja Raam noted a correspondence between each Pada of the Ashtadhyayi and specific anatomical functions.

Vyakaran and the Hypothalamus

This diagram illustrates a cross section of the cerebral cortex and a highlight of the anterior hypothalamus areas, corresponding to the first and second chapters of Vyakaran. The 4 nucleii in each area correspond to the 4 divisions of each chapter. The other three chapters have been similarly correlated with different aspects of the hypothalamus.


A second example of the relationship between Veda and the human physiology is Nyaya, the branch of the Vedic Literature that Maharishi describes as the embodiment of the distinguishing and deciding quality of consciousness, which simultaneously comprehends opposite qualities of consciousness.

Nyaya corresponds functionally to the thalamus, which relays sensory inputs to the primary sensory areas of the cerebral cortex, conveying information about motor behaviour to the motor areas of the cortex. Structurally, there are 10 Ahnika (chapters) of the Nyaya Sutras, and 10 areas of the thalamus: rostral, medial, lateral, caudal, and intralaminar, each found on both sides of the brain. Furthermore, while the Nyaya Sutras describe 16 topics of reasoning (Pramana, Prameya, etc.), the thalamus functions through 16 groups of cells called nuclei.

The first of the 16 areas of Nyaya (Pramana) corresponds to the first nuclear group of the thalamus called the pulvinar. Pramana has 4 subdivisions—Pratyaksha (direct perception), Anumana (inference), Upamana (comparison), and Shabda (verbal testimony)—which correspond respectively to the 4 subdivisions of the pulvinar. The first subdivision connects the superior colliculus with areas of the cortex and is responsible for higher order visual integration—i.e. perception (Pratyaksha). The second connects the superior colliculus and the temporal cortex with areas of the cortex and of the temporal cortex. These areas are involved in functions such as vision, hearing, memory, and language—together they are at the basis of processes of inference (Anumana). The third part of the pulvinar connects the parietal cortical areas back with other parietal cortical areas, and is responsible for polymodal sensory integration. This area gives a higher order perception about sensory inputs in relation of one with the other, serving the function of comparison (Upamana). The fourth connects the temporal cortex with the superior temporal gyrus and is responsible for memory, language, and speech. This is the basis of verbal testimony (Shabda). The fifteen following categories of Nyaya are similarly linked to different aspects of the thalamus, in structure and function.

Nyaya in the Thalamus

In this diagram, we see (on the right) a view of the thalamus with its 16 nuclei. On the left, we see the names of the nucleii and the 16 aspects of Nyaya to which they correspond.

Reading the Vedic Literature for Unfolding Perfection in Life

The correspondence between the Vedic Sounds and the human physiology has great potential for restoring physiological balance. Reading the sounds of the Vedic Literature in their proper sequence—even phonetically, without any sense of meaning—creates resonance with the same anatomic structures to which the sounds correspond, enlivening a specific sequence of neuronal, and physiological activity. By re-establishing the proper sequence of the unfoldment of Natural Law in the physiology, any imperfections— stress, blocks, or any structural or functional abnormalities—can be eliminated. The result is that the physiology functions increasingly in accord with its original and perfect design.

Maharishi points out that reading the Vedic Literature in sequential order has the effect of regulating and balancing the functioning of the brain physiology. During reading, the functioning of individual fibres of the brain come into coherence with the holistic value of brain functioning, and as a result the mind begins to function according to Natural Law in every expression. When the mind flows in an evolutionary direction, all thought, speech, and action also flow in an evolutionary direction, in the direction of the unfoldment of higher states of consciousness.

Students in a doctoral track at Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa, USA, read the Vedic Literature for several hours a day and document their growing enlightenment. These students have each recorded hundreds of experiences of growing higher states of consciousness.

I Know Veda, I Am Veda

Maharishi emphasizes that every individual is capable of experiencing Veda in their simplest state of awareness, and that complete knowledge and understanding of Veda does not come through intellectual analysis, but from identifying one’s awareness with Veda—the self-interacting dynamics of pure, self-referral consciousness—and exploring it on its own level. Since Veda is a phenomenon of pure subjectivity, transcendental to the thinking processes, the intellect is incapable of comprehending it on its own level. As Maharishi explains:

You know the Veda by being Veda. You cognize Veda by being Veda. Cognition of the Veda is on its own level, and that is that level in which we get into the details of wakefulness. Veda is the detailed structure of pure wakefulness, and there the intellect does not go.

Maharishi locates this understanding in two expressions, which underscore the relationship between identifying one’s awareness with Veda and knowing Veda:

Maharishi’s ideal of Vedic Study provides an important addition to the field of education, for it promises to develop Total Knowledge in the awareness of every student through exploring the Veda and Vedic Literature on its own level, and enlivening the fundamental impulses of Natural Law in the students’ awareness. Reading the Vedic Literature in conjunction with the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique provides the basis of Vedic Education, for it enlivens the total potential of Nature’s functioning in the awareness of every student. Maharishi describes this as a supreme achievement of education, which can create a perfect individual and a perfect educational system.

Every Individual Is Cosmic

This historic discovery provides clear and scientific proof that every man is Cosmic, every individual is the blueprint of the total potential of Nature’s organizing power. It is therefore the responsibility of every government to provide the opportunity for its citizens to unfold the total potential of their lives, to unfold their own Cosmic Potential.
