Support of Nature

The Support of Nature Phenomenon

As you may know, Maharishi Vedic Science describes the Support of Nature Phenomenon, often referred to as luck, good-fortune, providence, or synchronicity as the innate mistake free ability of any Self-referral individual to spontaneously and effortlessly create and administer the infinitely organizing Laws of Nature, to fulfill personal desires and professional goals. Through this alignment with Natural Law, executives (managers) and individuals develop within themselves the same managing intelligence by which Nature manages the infinite diversity of the universe.

As pure consciousness is experienced more fully and integrated with waking activity, managers gain the Support of Natural Law. (King & Herriott, 1997, p. 230)

However, as Maharishi informs us, “…not knowing the principle of success through one’s action, one thinks that one is supported by powers outside oneself, but in fact the phenomenon of Support of Nature is the phenomenon of one’s own pure consciousness–Self-referral consciousness (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 1995d, p. 358 to 360).”

Figure 1 illustrates the Samhita of lively Self-referral consciousness; the knower simultaneously knows that he/she is the knower, the process of knowing, and the object that is known.

Definition of Terms

Chhandas: The object of observation (known) (T. Nader, MD. PhD., 1994, p. 18)

Devata: The Process of observation (knowing) (T. Nader, MD. PhD., 1994, p. 18)

Maharishi Vedic Science: Maharishi Vedic Science is the science and technology of consciousness. It has its source in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. The term “Vedic” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Veda” which means “knowledge” — knowledge of the field of pure intelligence that is the source of all the diverse fields of knowledge; the source of the infinitely diverse universe. (Maharishi Uuiversity of Management, 2013)

Support of Nature: Activity Promoted by Pure Consciousness—lively Self-referral consciousness, is the Activity Upheld by the Infinite Organizing Power of the Unified Field (Samhita) of Natural Law. This is commonly known as ‘Support of Nature… (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 1995d, p. 358 to 360)

Nature: The forces and processes that produce and control all the phenomena of the material world, the Laws of Nature. (The American Heritage® Dictionary of the English Language, 2009)

For the purpose of this research more expanded definition of the word Nature is employed. This expanded definition defines nature is the forces and processes that produce, manage, and control all the phenomenon of the manifest and unmanifest universe. Common synonyms are: God, Brahm, Self-referral, Transcendent—Unified-field, Great Mystery, Great Spirit, and Almighty-Creator.

Phenomenon: a fact, occurrence, or circumstance observed or observable: to study the phenomena of nature. Something that is impressive or extraordinary. (, 2014)

Rishi: The observer—knower. (T. Nader, MD. PhD., 1994, p. 18)

Samhita: Pure consciousness being awake to itself experiences itself and is at once the knower, the process of knowing, and the known−observer, process of observation, and the observed; or subject, object, and process of linking them. In this state of pure absolute consciousness, these three values are one and the same, yet they represent three aspects of the same singularity. In Maharishi’s Vedic science they are called Rishi for knower, Devata for the process of knowing, Chhandas for the known, and Samhita for their togetherness as one. The Samhita of Rishi, Devata, and Chhandas is the simultaneous Self-referral awareness of the three values: Rishi–knower, Devata−process of knowing, Chhandas–known or object. (T. Nader, MD. PhD., 1994, p. 14 and 18) (See figure 1.)

Self-referral Awareness:

Maharishi defines Self-referral Awareness thus:

Consciousness is that which is conscious of itself. Being conscious of itself, consciousness is the knower of itself. Being the knower of itself, consciousness is both the knower and known. Being both the knower and known, consciousness is also the process of knowledge. Thus consciousness has three qualities within its Self-referral singularity—the qualities of knower, knowing, and known—the three qualities of ‘subject’ (knower), ‘object’ (known), and the relationship between the subject and object (process of knowing). (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 1998a, p. 53)


Veda is defined as Mantra and Brhmaa.

“Mantras are the structures of pure knowledge, the sounds of the VedaBrảhmaṇas are the internal dynamics of the structure of pure knowledge, the organizing power of the Mantras, the intelligence that structures the Mantras-the structuring dynamics of the Mantras.

Because Mantras and Brhmaa both together constitute the Veda, the word ‘Vedic’ is meaningful for both aspects of VedaMantra and Brhmaa.

Mantra and Brhmaa together representing the structure and function of the Veda-the structure and function of Natural Law, the structure and function of the organizing power of Natural Law embody the system or law that organizes order and promotes the processes of creation and evolution.” (Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 1994b, pp. 3-4)
