“Every aspect of the Vedic Literature expresses a specific quality of consciousness. Reading every aspect of the Vedic Literature as it flows and progresses in perfect sequential order has the effect of regulating and balancing the functioning of the brain physiology and training consciousness, the mind, always to flow in perfect accordance with the evolutionary direction of Natural Law. This training of the mind fulfills the purpose of education, by fully training the student to think and act spontaneously according to Natural Law.” —Maharishi Vedic University Introduction, 1994, p. 144
