Consciousness – The Foundation of Health, Happiness, and Long Life
Tony Nader, MD, PhD, MARR
Developing the full potential of every individual is the supreme goal of the health profession. Not only absence of disease and balance in mind and body ought to be aimed at but to guide every individual to fulfilment on every level personal, physical, mental and also vocational, social and cosmic. For this, we have to first define what the human potential is. According to all major traditions of knowledge and belief systems in the world, the individual is cosmic. Man was created in the image of God. The kingdom of heaven is within everyone. Veda declares a human being as Brahman, wholeness, and totality. Our research has shown that total knowledge available in Veda and the Vedic literature is embodied in the human physiology. Hundreds of scientific studies on Veda as available in Maharishi’s Vedic science and technology demonstrate that every individual can gain higher states of consciousness and rise to supreme balance, integration, fulfilment and enlightenment. Let us examine, and offer to the world from the platform of this great gathering of health scientists, the various procedures that not only can help to live a healthy, happy, and long life but also raise every individual and society to perfection creating enlightenment, peace and harmony for everyone and in the family of nations.
