ऋचो अक्षरे परमे व्योमन् यस्मिन्देवा अधि विश्वे निषेदुः यस्तन्न वेद किमृचा करिष्यति य इत्तद्विदुस्त इमे समासते Ṛicho Ak-kshare parame vyoman, yasmin devā adhi vishve nisheduh, yastanna veda kim ṛichā karishyatu, ya it tad vidus tai me samāsate. Maharishi translates this verse to mean: all knowledge, all the laws of nature, exists in the collapse of Ā (आ) to K (क), in the transcendental field of pure consciousness; he whose awareness is not open to this field, what can the laws of nature accomplish for him? He who knows this level of reality has the spontaneous use of the total potential of Natural Law, and is established in evenness, the wholeness of life.
