Individual consciousness is a miniature, faithful representation of cosmic consciousness which is accessed by those in deep samadhi. Vedic Samhita is a collection of mantras and hymns revealed to rishis in their elevated states of unitary consciousness. Usha follows Ratri as surely as spring follows winter, in an unfailing rhythm called ‘Rta’ in Sanskrit. The tapas, heat, of restraint incubates the seed of a higher consciousness in the spiritual aspirant, full of Shanti, peace; Anand, bliss and Pratibha, light. Spiritual dawn is the mother of divine virtues like compassion, friendship and a deep sensitivity to the sanctity of life.
