Abstract
Maharish~Mahesh Yogi has derived both the experiential and philosophical components of Transcendental Meditation. Maharishi's principle contribution to the Vedic tradition is that the Veda exists in consciousness, what he calls "the unified field whispering to itself." Those who know consciousness, know the Veda; according to Maharishi, the unfoldment of consciousness is the central theme of the Vedic literature.
