“Maharishi Vedic Science is the science of Veda. ‘Veda’ means pure knowledge and the infinite organizing power that is inherent in the structure of pure knowledge. Pure knowledge is the state of awareness in which consciousness knows itself alone, when awareness is completely self referral, when awareness has nothing other than itself in its structure.
“This state of pure knowledge, when knower, known, and process of knowing are in the self-referral, is that all-powerful, immortal, infinite dynamism at the unmanifest basis of creation. This is Vedic Science—all about the knower, the known, and the process of knowing; all about consciousness, both in its self-referral, self-interacting state, and as it expresses itself in the infinite variety of the whole creation, that performance of nature which goes on and on eternally in all spheres of time, past, present, and future. The knowledge of this most basic principle of life—the self-interacting dynamics of consciousness—is the science of pure knowledge, the science of Veda.”
