Consciousness is Primary
Illuminating the Leading Edge of Knowledge
with Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam,
(Professor Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D.)
What are the cutting edge discoveries in the major fields of learning? What are the very deepest values of knowledge? What are the common elements that all fields share? What are the most practical applications for bettering human life?
The faculty described how the most advanced developments in their disciplines are illuminated by a new science and technology of consciousness. Known as Maharishi Vedic Science, this science was developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the renowned sage of the Vedic tradition and scientist of consciousness. Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam (Professor Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D.), now the leading exponent in this science of consciousness, served as commentator.
From the perspective of this science, consciousness is primary. That is, the essence and foundation of life is pure consciousness, and all disciplines of knowledge—indeed, the entire cosmos—are expressions of pure consciousness, much as the waves on an ocean are expressions of the ocean itself.
This understanding throws a profound new light on modern knowledge. For when we understand the fundamental dynamics of consciousness, then we understand all knowledge at its basis. We recognize the dynamics of consciousness at work in all disciplines, from physics to literature, from business to biology. And we gain a common, unifying framework for understanding all knowledge in terms of its essence.
Furthermore, Maharishi Vedic Science offers technologies of consciousness—the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs, including Yogic Flying—for directly developing the total potential of consciousness within the knower. Numerous scientific research studies have documented the widespread benefits of these programs—integrated brain functioning along with increased intelligence, creativity, field independence, learning ability, moral maturity, and more. With a profound understanding of consciousness coupled with a systematic technology for developing it, teaching, learning, and research in every field gain a rich new dimension.
This volume presents the proceedings of this symposium. The presentations explore the latest discoveries in physics, mathematics, medicine and physiology, management and law, sustainable living, education, literature, creative musical arts, and exercise and sports science.
