to Fully Unfold the Power of Silence
(22 November 2007) Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder
of the Global Country of World Peace, gave the following historic
address to the First European Parliament of National Leaders of the
Global Country of World Peace, in MERU, Holland. Maharishi announced his
attention to focus on fully awakening Gyan Shakti—the power of
silence—now that he has 'laid a complete, complete, deep, never-shakeable
foundation of invincibility'.
Maharishi: ‘Jai Guru Dev. When 192 Super(powers), then the whole thing
becomes unified—no more 192 countries, but one Global Country
administered by total administrative power. And total administrative
power is in two sections: Total Knowledge and Total Activity—Gyan Shakti,
‘So what I am feeling just now, with all Europe rising to invincibility,
is that Kriya Shakti has started to show its performance. Kriya Shakti,
divided in 192 sections, has worked out its own unification. "United
Nations" was a word, but in actuality, it was still disunited. Now
somehow, somehow, the Gyan Shakti is awake. And Gyan Shakti waking up is
Kriya Shakti woken up—Gyan Shakti, Kriya Shakti.
‘And I feel now that having been active for all these fifty years, the
Kriya Shakti has woken up and has started to show the evidence of its
waking up. At least twenty-four countries are invincible out of 192. So
I am tempted to tell you my feelings, that with twenty-four countries
rising to invincibility and with all these Rajas and the National
Leaders, during the next week, the Rajas will take over the Kriya Shakti
‘So I am thinking of shifting my role from Kriya Shakti to Gyan Shakti,
because I feel the awakening of Kriya Shakti has been through my basing
the Kriya Shakti in the Gyan Shakti. People opened up to their
self-referral intelligence, and now, enough. Enough I say, but not
complete yet in my assessment.
‘Quite a lot of Kriya Shakti is woken up on the basis of, I would say,
one-tenth, or I could even say one-fourth of the Gyan Shakti. And I feel
now responsible to make that one-fourth of Gyan Shakti raised to 100%
‘And how it is going to be done? The field of Gyan
Shakti, which we have realized to be Veda, and Veda we have realized to
be the flow of Atma. And the flow of Atma has been put to practice from
the level of Kriya Shakti, transcending—getting into the first stage of
transcending, second stage of transcending, getting to Transcendental
Consciousness, and stirring the Transcendental Consciousness to make it
function through our intention on it.|
‘Now the Gyan Shakti, to be fully 100% awake what is needed remaining is
the intellectual understanding, and I want to devote my time to that.
And that, in simple words, is bringing out the commentary of the Veda. I
have not yet spelled out in complete clarity, from A to Z, the flow of
the Veda in terms of the flow of eight Prakritis. But whatever has been
done amounts to maybe 10%, 8%, 4%—whatever percent, a part of the Total
Knowledge aspect of it. Even a part of Total Knowledge unfolded has
unfolded, along with its unfoldment, the Kriya Shakti. And I see that
the Kriya Shakti is in good hands.
‘Rajas Conference will be from tomorrow, and I am going to finally lay
out my intellectual understanding. And from that level I think I have
created a competent body to continue reinforcing action, continuing
Kriya Shakti. The body of the Rajas, and so many Yogic Flyers,
Ministers, and all will continue on the Kriya Shakti, and I will devote
my time, whatever is left, in the unfoldment of pure Gyan Shakti.
‘And this will be, I will have to lay out all the details of how Atma
flows in terms of the Veda, how the first letter of Atma is the flow of
Total Veda, and how Total Veda, on the level of knowledge, flows is the
diversity of knowledge—all the Veda expanding to become the universe—how
knowledge expands from its compactified state in one syllable “A”, from
“A” to “Ma”, and Atma to Veda, and Veda to Vishwa, the universe, the
intelligence part of it.
‘Kriya Shakti has been witnessed, and there are enlightened individuals
in the world, all the Rajas, and more Rajas will come. And more
thoroughly the administration of the universe on the physical level will
be completely automatically growing from day to day, from day to day,
from day to day.
‘Now, so far, twenty-four countries are invincible. We want to hear all
the 192 countries together have risen to a state of invincibility. But
now it will need, it will need the theory of it to be brought to the
awareness of those who will be engaged in the field of action, action,
‘To do the Gyan Shakti, I know how many pockets of different values of
Gyan Shakti have to be brought to light and have to be put together in
one glance of every Raja.
‘Rajas have been trained so far to carry the Kriya Shakti, and they will
control Kriya Shakti by being themselves, four hours morning and
evening, themselves, and that will continue to strengthen the Kriya
‘But I have to give them, and I know what are the separate values of
Gyan Shakti that have to be put together, and that will be my bringing
to light the different values, the different united values of the Gyan
'So in simple words, I will devote my time in the commentary of the
Veda. I have done commentary on Bhagavad-G¡ta*. It is a compactified
state of Gyan Shakti, Kriya Shakti. I have to open the petals of
knowledge that are still calling me to put the attention and open—open
the lotus flower petals and make the petals in the opening. Nothing
should remain hidden from view, either from the level of Being, from the
level of intellect, from the level of mind, from the level of behaviour—all
these different values of knowledge, knowledge, knowledge.
‘Just that example, the lotus petals are closed. They will open up. And
they only can be opened up from inside. Lotus petals have to be opened
from inside, from the gap within, which is level of pure knowledge.
Opening will be through the Kriya Shakti, but something has to be there
for Kriya Shakti to be opening, opening, opening, and this will be
intellectual understanding of the whole Kriya Shakti.
‘Why Kali Yuga came? Kali Yuga came, Kriya Shakti
became blurred. Nobody knew what to do. Everyone lost the Dharma, and
losing Dharma, all suffering and all kinds of negativity all come up.
This is because of the loss of Gyan Shakti and loss of Gyan Shakti is a
loss of the intellectual level. And that I hope to do in one or two
years, if time is allowed.|
‘That I am going to undertake to do after expressing great satisfaction
for those who are upholding the fort on the level of Kriya Shakti. And
we’ll have Gyan Shakti floating, strengthening, as Gyan Shakti blossoms
on the surface of the world consciousness, as Gyan Shakti blossoms.
‘And for Gyan Shakti to blossom, I have only to indicate, it’s not my
intelligence that will do it. It is just that what I see, I speak—that’s
all. What I see, I speak. So I have to speak what the Veda blossoms
into, Vishwa; what Atma blossoms into, the Veda; what Veda blossoms
into, Atma, on this side; and what Atma blossoms into, Brahm—Saguna
Brahm—and Saguna Brahm blossoms into Nirguna Brahm. So Nirguna Brahm,
Saguna Brahm, Atma, Veda, Vishwa, all expressions of the pure
intelligence, Gyan Shakti—this I have to give to the world and that will
be my total contribution.
‘The day will not be long [for that], because the Kriya Shakti is
lively. That will take me just to say what I see, say what I see. So
that is the career that I have designed for myself—Gyan Shakti to
blossom in its full. And as Gyan Shakti will blossom, Kriya Shakti will
naturally be more and more blossomed.
‘So I, from my side, have won half the race, and I will win the other
half. But all of you are the winners of the race. You go ahead, go
ahead, and on the same line you will see that nothing is obscure to you.
‘And all Glory of Guru Dev. All Glory of Guru Dev. All Glory of Guru
Dev. We are halfway to achievement of our target. We are half way to
achievement of our target. Half way achievement of the target of Guru
Dev’s grace is Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnur, Guru Devo Maheshwara. This
much we have achieved. What we have to achieve is Guru Sakshat Param
Brahma. We have to see Brahm Sakshat personally, purely, clearly,
vividly. We have to yet see the Grace of Guru Dev.
‘So we, I will keep on doing Puja, Puja, Puja, Puja , and the last
target of Guru Dev’s Grace will be in our vision. And that will be, that
will be, that will be the bell of invincibility in time. That our
Communication Minister has started to ring—very well doing, very well
‘So I am expressing my confidence on the achievements of all the
enlightened nations in the world, twenty-four. They will grow into 192,
and we will have laid a complete, complete, deep, never-shakeable
foundation of invincibility in the changing times around, all that, all
‘This is my feeling that has started, that I have expressed to you, with
all my admiration for your achievements of the Kriya Shakti. Jai Guru
Maharishi's speech was followed by a standing ovation and very long
clapping reminiscent of the long clapping that occured when Maharishi
started the Movement on the historic day of 27 December 1957 in Madras.

Tenfold Structure of Brahm
(25 November 2007) Addressing
the first World Congress of Rajas of the Global Country of World Peace,
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi probed deeply into an analysis of the divided and
undivided nature of Brahm, bringing out the ten values of Brahm,
Maharishi began by saying that we would say our administrative structure
is exactly what it is in Nature. This was our goal, which we have
achieved. We wanted to structure the organization, the administration
[of the Global Country of World Peace] on a par with Nature's
administration, which administers the universe with perfect order and
which is Param Purusha [transcendental silence, transcendental Being].
Maharishi: ‘Param Purusha we have in Brahm [Totality], and Brahm, the
One, is made of memory. It is one and it has the memory of many, one in
many. So one in many means unity in diversity. These are the one in
many. So one in many is or can only be, one with the memory of many.
‘So that is one without memory, which is one pattern of Being; the other
side of that same one Being, is the memory of many. There is no many.
There is only one, which is "Ekam evadwitiyam Brahm", "Neha nanasti
kinchan" [Brahm is One only, without a second. There is no diversity
whatsoever]. There is one, non-dual Brahm. There is one, and that one is
made of memory [Smriti].
‘So that one Brahm is "Nirguna Nirakar Brahm" [non-qualified
Brahm,Totality] and the same Nirguna Nirakar is "Saguna Sakar Brahm"
[Non-qualified Brahm is qualified Brahm], by the inevitable memory as a
part of its Being. Memory is a part of Being, so this memory remains; it
makes one, two, in a proper understanding. One is made of two.
‘Memory is the element that makes two in one. And this memory between
them; memory has two, one [is] really transcendental within it. So one
is two by memory, Smriti, because there is a connection, a travel
between them, which makes one non-active by nature, and [one] active by
nature, with the inception of memory.
‘So this is how one in two, and three—one and two, one and two, netted
[knitted] by Sutra. There is Brahm Sutra, Nirguna Brahm [Brahm Sutra,
non-qualified Brahm] and Saguna Brahm [qualified Brahm], and the
connection between them is also Brahm. It has a third name to it, Sutra,
Brahm Sutra. Brahm Sutra is just the name of the memory, which puts one
into two and keeps them one and keeps them inevitably two. So these
become three values.
‘And the connection of the two is called, in a simple [way], it's a
connector, it's a connector. On one level we call it Smriti and on the
other level we call it Saguna and Nirguna—Nirguna, Saguna, connected by
Smriti. Nirguna Brahm. Saguna Brahm is also Brahm, but it has a name
separate from Brahm because Brahm is the connector. It connects the two.
So the connector is also Brahm and this Brahm is called Atma, because
Atma is A to Ma, Ma to A. Atma is memory. So this is memory and memory
is Brahm and memory, and Brahm, which is connector of the two Brahms,
the intellect. It is the ability of intellect.
‘The intellect deals with two
values. All the infinite values are now in terms of two values. All
those two are complete and connected with the third, which is Atma, or
Atma also is Brahm, Nirguna Brahm, Saguna Brahm, Nirguna Brahm, Saguna
Brahm, two Brahms—and two Brahms meet on the level of third Brahm, which
we call Atma.
‘So Nirguna Brahm, Saguna Brahm, and another third Brahm, which is also
Smriti, that is also Brahm. Brahm means Totality, Totality. So there is
one Totality. There are two Totalities. There are three Totalitites. And
when there are three Totalitites, look to the fourth Totality, which is
making the three Totalitites in the state of a triangle, a triangle.
‘So one Totality is one; second Totality is Nirguna Brahm, Saguna Brahm;
and the third Totality is the connection between the two. And the fourth
category is a square—one, two, three, four—and having one, inside, five.
And having inside, five, and [one] outside [which is] also Totality, so
‘This is what? Analysis. From nothing, starting from zero, remain
nothing, unmanifest, one, two, three, four, five, six. This is also
called six together. Where there is togetherness, there is oneness, so
this oneness within. Oneness means one whole. One whole also is one
Totality. It is also Brahm. So this is Brahm.
‘This is one, the hexagon. Before that it was pentagon. Before that it
was square. Before that it was triangle. And before that it was two
parallels. And these two parallels was one whole. So what we are having
is: the intellect is locating one in terms of one, two, three, four,
five, six. And what was it? Six. Six inside, so hexagon. Six inside, and
each has outside, and one whole but divided into six. So inside six,
‘These are all what? The perspectives of one vision, one vision, and the
seer of the six is called Brahm. And it has a name: "Shan-mukha"—six-mouthed,
personified person, who is the seer of the six values. So he is the
seventh: six values, [and the] seer of six values. So this is seventh.
‘And the process of seeing is eight values. So the seer and process of
seeing, they are eight, up to eight—Brahm, eight Totalities, eight
Totalities, eight Totalities.
‘What is this? This is eight-divided Totality. And therefore it's
obvious there is one Totality—[the] ninth one, undivided Totality—ninth,
undivided Totality. So there is undivided Totality, nine, undivided
Totality, all Para Prakriti, Para [transcendental nature]. It is unified
eight Prakriti, it's unified, undivided Para Prakriti. Prakriti, nature;
whose nature? We have a name, Purusha's nature, the tenth.
‘And who is the tenth? That who is saying, nine Prakritis of Totality,
nine Prakritis of Brahm, nine collective Prakritis of Brahm. He is the
collector. He has a unified state of nine Prakritis. The unified level
of Prakriti has nine Prakritis, and he is the tenth of Purusha [infinite
silence]—so the tenth, Purusha.
‘In Vedic language [there is] Apara Prakriti, [it is] not Para, not
unified, but divided. So eight Para Prakritis [and the] ninth united
Prakritis, which means eight Para united in the eight Apara: eight
undivided, divided into ninth, Para.
‘So Para Prakriti and Purusha,
they are non-active silence, and the potential of activity is called his
Para Prakriti. This is how the whole administrative structure of Natural
Law is divided into Purusha and one united Prakriti, and one united
Prakriti, divided in eight Prakritis.
‘This is the natural perspective of how Nature is, how the nature of
Totality is; how the nature of Brahm is. So Brahm equates with Purusha,
and as the nature of Brahm is open to analysis, it gives us one total
administration. The status of one is Brahm, and within that Brahm two is
there, three is there, four are there, so the nine are there and tenth
also is there.
‘The starting point [of all this] is unmanifest Brahm, "Nirguna Nirakar
Brahm", zero—same Nirguna Nirakar zero Brahm, same Nirguna Nirakar zero
Brahm—which is total Brahm. So we have this vision of Brahm. The
intellect likes to call it hierarchy of Reality: Reality, one. Down,
eight. And up, it makes it a cone to the top, with ten divisions—one on
the top and nine below and below nine, eight below.
‘This is intellectual, analytical, the picture: triangle in the end,
triangle in the end, big triangle with eight—one, two, three, four—eight
down below, divided, and ninth, undivided, and the intelligence is
intellect called Brahm.
‘What do we have? The hierarchy of total, what we call, Reality. And
when we divide it, we call [it] Natural Law. Natural Law is really in
these ten areas, where silence is endowed with nine levels of silence,
ten levels of silence—one Purusha, and nine silent; actually eight
levels of divided silence, which is the vision of the ninth. This is the
map or the architectural vision of the structure or layout of Brahm—Total
Knowledge, we call it.'
‘. . . [Going into more details] the eight of these are so unified that
in the state of unity, each of the eight is well connected with the
other eight. . . . That means each of the eight is made again of memory,
memory—the same memory with which "Nirguna Nirakar Brahm" [non-qualified
Brahm, Totality] is "Saguna Sakar Brahm" [non-qualified Brahm is
qualified Brahm], the same connection [is] between Nirguna
[non-qualified] and Saguna[qualified]. The element is the same, and
their unified and divided nature is also the same, same. So it is one
and it is many. It is one, it is many.
‘This is the intellect of one. Each intellect has that. What do we call
it? [It] has that potential of many. Each level of intellect has the
potential of the many, and therefore it's possible for each to live many
in his living reality. And that will be himself, total Brahm, living
Totality. And Brahm is called Brahm.
‘So Aham [the I] of the individual, Aham of the individual is Brahm—Aham—"A",
"Ha", and "aM" value, point value, Aham; "haM", Aham, and what is "haM"?
"A" in its own is "A is "aM", "A", infinity. "A" is point. And now we
have seen how, systematically, "A" finds its infinity—"A", Atma,
infinity, total (Nirguna Nirakar) Brahm, how it becomes "Saguna Sakar
Brahm" through all these eight values of Prakriti [Nature]. "A" is all
Ak-kshara. "A" is Kshara, that means "A" becomes reduced, becomes
reduced, becomes reduced. "A" becomes eight times reduced into "Ma". "A"
becomes eight times reduced into the point, whole memory, memory.
‘So "A" is made of eight memory. One single Brahm is made of eight
Saguna Brahm. So this is how the Saguna Brahm being one is, in reality,
one; and in the same reality, it is eight; [in the] same reality it is
many. "Eko'ham bahu syam" [''I am one, may I be many''] is the
expression in the Vedic language. What is it? Brahm has all those dual
nature of Brahm, triple nature of Brahm, quadruple nature of Brahm, like
that, like that, the nature of Brahm, inside and outside expanding
eight, expanding eight, expanding eight.
‘This is one and one in many, and many in
one—countable numbers. You keep on counting to infinity. All that is
within the eight. All the eight are in the one united and one united is
known to itself. Its knower also is the same. So one Brahm and Ananta, "Ananta-lakshanavan"
. . . that means Ananta, Ananta values, quality. Infinite values is one
quality of Brahm, and coming on its own . . . one quality, but all is
‘At every level it has minimizing direction of its nature, maximizing
direction of its nature, and it has the same level of its
nature—minimizing, maximizing, upwards, downwards, on the horizontal
level; always three and always many, and always one—one and three and
innumerable, many, and the Totality, Brahm. And Brahm is translated in
the language of science as ''Unified Field'', the singularity. [It] is
the same singularity that is viewed by the intellect as differentiated
values up to nine values and up to one value.
‘Who does this one into nine? The intellect. And what is the nature of
intellect? The nature of the intellect is what is available in the
Veda—Veda as it is divided into eight Prakritis. Everywhere the eight
Prakritis are viewed by intellect. They are viewed as eight values, and
viewed as eight values not in an imaginary manner, [but] viewed in the
structure of many, and the structure of eight, [many] now reduced to
eight, viewed as eight intellectually.
‘This intellectual perception is brought to the direct experience
through the process of experiencing. So the same Ahamkar [individual I],
the same ego, same Aham, same individuality, same Being, has it in eight
terms and it has it from eight to seven to six to five, up to two, where
the knower and knowing and known, the three values are there. So when
the three are there, these three are the three aspects of the same one
value, Brahm. So Triguna Brahm is called Veda. And number two is called
Smriti, Atma [the Self], Atma. Atma is also Brahm. It has memory, so it
has three values in it.
‘ "A", to "Ma", "Ma" to "A". The third is both together. These are the
names only. Different names [are] given and these names are given by the
intellect, and intellect is a wave of Atma, Atma. So Nirguna Nirakar
Brahm, Saguna Sakar Brahm, and the third Brahm is the flow between them,
the connecting link between Nirguna Nirakar Brahm and Saguna Sakar Brahm.
This link is materially available to us in terms of the Veda, and Veda
is materially available for us in terms of the physical universe.
‘What we have seen is, whatever mental or physical, it's all, in the
modern terms we would say psychological. Modern psychology is very
complete, psychological, but that is the phrase, psychological, that
means non-physical. The whole reality of Brahm in terms of memory and
the moment it is memory, it is all divided, different levels of memory.
So how many levels of memory do we have in this thinking?
‘We have memory in the "Nirguna Nirakar Brahm". It is full of all the
memory. And then next level of memory "Saguna Sakar Brahm". Next is Atma
memory, it's all pure memory. Upward it has two values, Nirguna Nirakar
value, Saguna Sakar value. There is memory, which connects them: both
are made of memory. Down below, [is the] flow of Veda.
‘Veda flow is the flow of unified memory into eight values and each of
them has eight within it. Each of the eight has memory of the other
seven. So it has the memory of himself. So each of eight is made of
eight, 64. Multiple of 64; each multiple has 64.
‘Like that, the physical world of innumerable, countable and uncountable
physical creation, becomes universe in a unified state—again united in
the bottom, united in the top, united in the bottom, united in the top.
And that we have in terms of a globe of our world. North Pole also is a
point. South Pole also is a point. Equator, goes both sides, up and
down, like Atma, goes outside, inside, outside. So the picture
intellectually located is present to us in the physical universe, in a
globe. North Pole and South Pole.'
‘This is the administrative structure of, you call it, the universe, you
call it, the world; we divide [it] in many countries, and call it
political countries, economic countries. [We] divide them into
educational organizations, divide them into language, all kinds of
divisions, all kinds of time and space. [The] eight [Prakritis discussed
in Parts I and II] will bear in our understanding all space, all time,
all intellectual perception or mental perception, or ego.
‘[The] point is also a perception. But it's all a point, like North
Pole, South Pole, the same thing, same Brahm. This is our vision of
Totality, and this is our vision of administration of Totality and all
these three, five days*, silence rules. This silence rules; this silence
rules has been personified by a ruler, a ruler of Total Knowledge,
‘So this is the structure of administration of the varied values of
silence, but silence administers itself in all these different values.
Now we have realized, who is the administrator? Silence is the
administrator. And how [does] it administer? It administers by all those
nine values and then ten values; tenth is the administrator, and the
ninth, the way of administering.
‘Nine united—that is, one grand administrator, and each of the eight
that are divided have their value. Each have their value: Bhumir,
apo'nalo, vayuh, kham, mano, buddhir . . . ahamkar**. These are the
divisions of the administrative skills of silence, administrative skills
of intelligence, but ultimately they are silence. This is the
intellectual perception of who is the ruler, who is the ruled. This is
called Total Knowledge, and as the ruling is divided into the ruler and
the means of ruling, so this is what makes a government and the
governed, Raja [the ruler, administrator] and Praja [the ruled]—Raja and
‘It's a beautiful day for the Congress of Rajas to see where they stand.
Ultimately they stand in terms of Raja; they are the meeting point of
Kriya Shakti [action principle] and Gyan Shakti [Pure Knowledge]. The
Raja is the centre point between the two: one is Kriya Shakti, one is
silence; between silence and Kriya. This is the status of the Assembly
of the Rajas: on one side Gyan Shakti, [on] one side Kriya Shakti. They
are Being, their Being [is] in Gyan Shakti. [The] "becoming" aspect of
Being is their Kriya Shakti. . . .
‘So that whatever the Gyan Shakti, Kriya Shakti performs that for them.
Kriya Shakti performs [for] them. So their one nature [is] silence, and
the same silence is performing their administrative value.
‘So we have decided [there is] nothing to do for their Kriya Shakti. We
have to do everything in the field of Kriya Shakti, so we have found out
how to do it. Do the whole Kriya Shakti in operation by being Raja, by
being Totality, by being Unity, by being silence.
‘On the basis of this picture of guarantee of the Raja, the Raja will
begin to work in silence from the time their awareness is qualified as
one and qualified as many. Qualified as one and many will be through
practice. Not only practice through Kriya Shakti, but all the time
practising Kriya Shakti, Kriya Shakti, Kriya Shakti, the Gyan Shakti
will begin to function spontaneously. All functioning will be in
‘Jai Guru Dev, and we will steady this structure. . . . We just go
through the structure, we go through the structure. We know the
structure, it's potential in our intellect, but we go through it through
language, language, and we'll go through it in the language of
arithmetic, algebra, geometry, all the modern mediums of administration.
‘So that is what we want to be owning in our awareness, and this is the
value of this Congress of the Rajas [First World Congress of the Rajas
of the Global Country of World Peace]. Jai Guru Dev. Jai Guru Dev. Guru
Dev*** who has made us Rajas to rule the world; to be participating in
silence for the whole administration of ours. Glory to Guru Dev. For
three days, we will go collectively talking about this, talking about
it; hear it, hear it, hear it, and own it, own it, own it.’
