During our spiritual evolution, the foundation of our spiritual knowledge and experience, the Ved, or Veda, doesn’t go anywhere. Instead, the Ved becomes fully integrated, and we then live it in Cosmic freedom, or Brahman, full enlightenment.
For example, all the TM teachers and Sidhas have been steeped in enlightenment, the Ved, from Maharishi for many decades, some their entire adult lives. What a total commitment!
Now, to live Brahman, they must integrate all His knowledge, and come into their own.
They can stop following Him, and instead fully surrender to Him, into the complete freedom of Brahman. It is like the day when we were kids, and the training wheels came off the bicycle! We could now ride confidently, anywhere.
Living Brahman doesn’t necessitate any outer changes. it is simply an acknowledgement that all knowledge taught in the Vedas has been integrated. The same source that gave birth to such perfect mandalas of Creation is now fully active within the individual, whatever their dharma.
The spiritual Dharma, however, is consistent for all of those living Brahman – Simply enlighten the world as quickly as possible! This is not some grand set of openly altruistic actions, designed to reward the apparent doer. No, it is a Cosmic commitment to stay on the job until done, full stop.
Both as big a task as can be taken on, and yet a subset of the Cosmic imperative available to us living Brahman. And therefore, always successful, without exception – the chief hallmark of Brahman.
Maharishi called this “Cosmic Ego”, though never selfish or out of touch, as we sometimes think of actions driven by the ego or sense of self. He just meant that we act naturally in Brahman, according to our unique character, and at the same time always in synchrony with the Cosmic will. This is transcending the Ved, and living Brahman, or Totality, living Cosmic life.
So the way to advance our enlightenment is to stop following Maharishi, and instead fully surrender to Him, surrender Absolutely into Brahman. This will hasten our global enlightenment.
