The climax of the Rk Veda is enshrined in the verse below, whereby in the togetherness of infinity of the unbounded universal reality along with the point value of relative experience [as well as in the togetherness of those who engage in unfolding pure consciousness in coherent groups], then a reality of a wholeness which is more than the sum of the parts is created. An incredible concept, and a great truth.
This is a foundation for all knowers of reality, and an inspiration for all those seeking that level of truth.
Our good fortune, through Maharishi’s generosity and gifting of pure knowledge, is having received both the understanding of this as well as the means to attain it. Armed with this potent combination, it gives the impetus for all who strive to realise the fullness of this wisdom in their own consciousness.Below this shloka Maharishi gives a commentary on this verse, with excerpts from the Constitution of India book, emphasising the wholeness of human consciousness in great detail.
Rk Veda, 10th Mandala
Sam-sam id yuvase vrishann Agne vishvāny arya ā
ilas pade sam idhyase sa no vasuny ā bhara
Sam gachchhadhyam sam vadadhvam sam vo manāmsi jānatām
Devā bhāgam yathā purve sanjānanā upasate
Samāno mantrah samitih samāni samānam manah saha chittam eshām
samanām mantram abhi mantraye vah samānena vo havishā juhomi
Samāni va akutih samānā hridayāni vah
samānam astu vo mono yathā vah susahāsati
Rk Veda 10.191.14
[This last Sukta of Rk Veda indicates the climax of the evolution of Law. Here all the speciﬁc laws that constitute the Ultimate Reality are in uniﬁed state. It is the sequentially evolving dynamism of the speciﬁc Laws of Nature where total dynamism inherent in total silence has been expressed]
Agni—showerer (of all life, of all beneﬁts), thou who art the supreme source, course, and goal of all creation, thou verily combinest with all creatures, thou art kindled upon the footmark of ILA (the unmanifest dynamism (of I), the dynamic basis of all life); bring unto us riches.
Go together, speak together, know your minds to be functioning together from a common source in the same manner as the impulses of Creative Intelligence, in the beginning, remain together united near the source.
Integrated is the expression of knowledge, an assembly is signiﬁcant in unity; united are their minds in the silent dynamism of All Possibilities. For you (says the Seer Samvanana) I make use of the integrated expression of knowledge. By virtue of unitedness, and by means of that which remains to be united, I perform action to generate WHOLENESS of life; (this means that the consciousness of the seer Samvanana, whose qualities are illustrated by the letters of his name, reverberating in the form of this hymn and producing the cognition, proclaims that consciousness, or the pure nature of life, continues to create newer and newer WHOLENESS, newer and newer Rk—all the time maintaining WHOLENESS—all the time united in one grand WHOLENESS).
United be your purpose, harmonious be your feelings, collected be your mind (the phrase “collected be your mind” calls for integrated neurophysiological functioning), in the same way as all the various aspects of the universe exist in togetherness, WHOLENESS.
