Richo Akshare Charts
"A second chart used by the faculty to further the goals of interdisciplinary studies—the Richo Akshare chart—consists of eight boxes of text. Each box represents a basic principle of the self-referral mechanics of creation, and the impact of action in accord with these mechanics, as summarized by what Maharishi terms the master-key verse of Rk Veda. This verse of Rk Veda explains that the self-referral state of consciousness, transcendental consciousness, is the home of all the Laws of Nature which structure the entire manifest universe. It further emphasizes the importance of human awareness being open to this level of reality so that perfection in life can be lived. For each discipline or sub-discipline, faculty describe the same self-referral creative and practical mechanics, box by box, demonstrating that “all knowledge of modern science is available in the Richo Akshare verse” (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Vedic knowledge for everyone. Holland: Maharishi Vedic University Press, 1994, p. 176). As students are exposed to these deepest principles from discipline to discipline, and again see that they reflect the same basic mechanics experienced during their daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs, the unity of all knowledge becomes further enlivened in their intellect. As a result, the important practical consequences of operating in accord with these self-referral mechanics is reinforced." --Samuel Y. Boothby, The Knowledge and Experience of Self-Referral Consciousness and the Fulfillment of Interdisciplinary Study, Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa, July 2014.
