Cosmic Psyche
'Knowledge of pure consciousness, the cosmic psyche, is the starting point and central core of the Vedic Psychology of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.'   'The cosmic psyche is self-sufficient because it does not need anything outside itself to exist or to create. In Vedic Science, the self-sufficiency of the cosmic psyche is expressed as Aham Brahmasmi—"I am the self-sufficient, eternal wholeness of existence."   'The ideal of sociological self-referral is the Golden Rule—"Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." If the cosmic psyche is the unified source of creation, then all members of society are connected at their deepest level, pure consciousness. Sociological self-referral is indicated when the interests of the individual are spontaneously integrated with the interests of others and of the society at large. (This is verified by numerous studies.)   'It can be seen from a number of viewpoints—intellectual understanding, basic principles of science, direct experience, and scientific research—that the qualities of the cosmic psyche as described by Maharishis Vedic Psychology clearly account for how the mind and nature work, supporting the view that the cosmic psyche is the unity underlying the diversity of both.   'The personal experiences of participants in the TM and TM-Sidhi programs, the explanation of these experiences, and the research on them all point to the same conclusion: The self-referral state of human consciousness is the self-referral state of nature's functioning—pure consciousness, the cosmic psyche.'   -- David Orme-Johnson, PhD, 'The Cosmic Psyche as the Unified Source of Creation: Verification through Scientific Principles, Direct Experience, and Scientific Research', Modern Science and Vedic Science, vol. 2, no. 2, 1988.
