TRADITIONAL USE AND DESCRIPTION
These two complementary instruments display the movement
of the Sun from the standpoint of the location of the individual
on the Earth.
Wherever one Ram Yantra has solid portions, the other has
open spaces. While one instrument shows the shadow cast by the
top of the central post, the other instrument does not register
a shadow. These instruments are used alternately as the Sun moves
across the sky. The base of the central post represents the zenith
point, and the ring on top of the vertical columns represents
the horizon line. These instruments determine the altitude and
azimuth of the Sun. Locating the end of the shadow of the central
post on the interior surface of the instrument yields the coordinates
of the Sun in altitude and azimuth.
VEDIC INFLUENCE--THE VIEW OF MAHARISHI VEDIC SCIENCESM
The two Ram Yantras display fullness on the move: Purnamadah-Purnamidam.
Fullness on the move is what generates different aspects of physiology.
Total Intelligence on the move means total Natural Law or potential
Natural Law becoming livelier and appearing as specific Laws
of Nature, which are then expressed as the physiological structures.
Both the common basis of all the specific physiological structures,
the nonspecific ocean of Intelligence, and the specific physiological
structures become lively through observing the Ram Yantra. The
use of the Ram Yantra will put together these two aspects-manifest
and unmanifest-and will also enliven the process of transformation
from unmanifest to manifest. Viewing the Ram Yantras enlivens
this process of creation located in the physiology where Intelligence
begins to express itself and assume different forms.
The use of these two Ram Yantras can be taken to touch the
horizon of unity consciousness-a quiet influence of unfolding
the supreme reality, which is manifest and unmanifest (solid
and hollow) both at the same time.
