During the global celebration of Dhanvantari on November 7, 2007 Maharishi gave this address:
"Today's Puja to Guru Dev has awakened in us that aspect of Brahmi Chetana, which is expressed in the word of Dhanvantari. Dhanvantari is a level of intelligence that is an aspect of the Constitution of the Universe that connects the unmanifest source of the Constitution with the manifest expression of the Constitution which governs the universe, which governs the health of the universe. It's very beautiful what has happened to us today. Dhanvantari. Today's Puja to Guru Dev has been in terms of Puja to Dhanvantari.
Dha is intellect: Dhi = Buddhi;
Dha + Na: Buddhi in the unmanifest state, unmanifest Buddhi.
Unmanifest Buddhi is that which manifests Buddhi.
And it structures Dhan.
Dha -- Dhi -- Buddhi in the Nakaratmik, that means in the unmanifest state, Buddhi in the unmanifest state.
Buddhi at that level from where expression begins -- the transcendental level, from where the mind begins, from where intellect begins, from where ego begins,
from where multiplicity begins -- from the state of complete self-referral unity.
Complete self-referral unity expresses itself as Dhan. That is Dhan. Dhan has a meaning in wealth; there is a source of wealth -- Dhanvantari, custodian of wealth.
Custodian of health, wealth, and wisdom, the Custodian: Dhan.
Van, Va means -- now you look at it from the different points of view, either this or this; or Van -- Va, again Na. "Van -- again look at Na in terms of Van-ta.
Ta, Ta -- Tad Brahman.
In terms of Brahman, in terms of Brahman. Brahman is totality of multiplicity and unity. Ta -- Tad Brahman. Tad Brahman. Tat tu samanvayat. Brahman is unification of two opposite values, one unified, and multiple [di]versified -- unified, united with versified.
This union is called Brahman. Totality, Totality. This is the junction point of unmanifest and manifest.
Here is a unity of unmanifest and manifest. There is a unity of manifest, unmanifest.
This is what we see, the actuality of Dhan-van-ta. Ta is a unification of one and many. One and many together; one neutralizes many, and many neutralizes one, so it becomes again unmanifest. But unmanifest; it's the impulse of unmanifest.
Ra, Ra is the impulse. The impulse of the unmanifest, and this impulse is in terms of RRRR -- I. Ra is Atharva, impulse of A.
That is an impulse of A in terms of I -- Kriya Shakti. Here is the awakening of Kriya Shakti, on the ground of complete unified state of reality.
This is, the actuality between Parashakti, and Purusha. Purusha [infinite silence] and Parashakti [the unmanifest dynamism within silence].
Purusha and Parashakti, the junction of Purusha and Parashakti. The awakening of Parashakti and Purusha, this is Dhanvantari Day.
"And this has dawned in our mind when we have surrendered our individual ego to Guru Dev -- Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishur, Guru Devo Maheshvarah, Guruh Sakshat Param Brahma, Tasmai Shri Gurave Namah.
Puja to this, do a Puja to Brahman, but spelled out Brahman in terms of creator, maintainer -- Gurur Brahma, Gurur Vishnur -- Maheshvarah, complete silence and still in awakening.
"Today we are in the junction of the Absolute in reality. Today, we are in the junction. With this Puja, our awareness has been awakened in terms of the total reality which is a combined status of manifest and unmanifest, manifest and unmanifest. Today is the day where our awareness is stationed on a level of all possibilities, inside outside, junction point, Dhanvantari. This is the day, Dhanvantari Day."
