Vision of Dhi

The vision we have for Dhi at its heart is simple. There is a flood of information and knowledge, online and offline, available to all seekers of the Truth. Human beings are now realizing a need to reconnect with the ONE Reality that binds us all beyond artificial divisions. There are a million branches and practices that seekers of Truth have access to, and that is alright, but most get caught up in these tools without unbroken access to their core Self. At Dhi, we aim to break these boundaries and open up the core to the knowledge of ONE. This Oneness is achieved through individual experiences, expertise, routines, rituals, nature, work, thoughts, theories and perspectives among other dimensions that wrap up an individual.

Dhi – The Reflection

(Sanskrit: धी), this Sanskrit word means ‘understanding’, ‘reflection’, ‘religious thought’, ‘mind’, ‘design’, ‘intelligence’, ‘opinion’, ‘meditation’, ‘imagination’, ‘notion’, ‘intellect’,[1] This word is directly connected with the word, Vāc (Sanskrit: वाच) meaning Speech, derived from Vac (Sanskrit: वच) meaning, ‘to speak’. Dhi is the voiced Vāc or ‘Speech’, it is the thought-mind or intellect. Dhi also means ‘to hold’ or ‘to place’, and indicates the activity of the intellect.

The natural meaning of Dhi is ‘Thought’ which corresponds to the Sanskrit word Buddhi which means ‘the activity of mind’, ‘thought’, ‘understanding’ and ‘intelligence’.[3] Vedic Sanskrit employs two words Dhi and Brahman for prayerful or meditative contemplation in which context Dhi means ‘visionary insight’, ‘intense thought and reflection’, and the word Brahman is derived from the root brh, meaning ‘to grow’, ‘to expand’.[4] Manu Smriti describes ten essential rules for observance of Dharma (the path of righteousness or the ‘Law of Being’, which binds the people of this world and the whole creation) – Dhriti (‘patience’), Kshama (‘forgiveness’), Dama (‘self-control’), Asteya (‘honesty’), Shauch (‘purity’), Indriya-nigrah (‘control of senses’), Dhi (‘reasoning’), Vidya (‘knowledge and learning’), Satya (‘truthfulness’) and Akrodha (‘control of anger’).

refers to ‘vision’ or ‘inspiration which is the exceptional faculty of acquiring a sudden knowledge of transcendent truth or reality’, ‘the inner light of visionary insight’. Soma is the Lord of Vision who dispenses inspiration and Speech (Vāc) is inspired thought (manisa) or wisdom guarded by the seers on the seat of Rta.[12] The Rig Veda links language not only to thought (manas) but also to vision (dhi), a word from which comes Dhyana meaning ‘meditation’.[13] In the Yajurveda (29.8), Sarasvati, the Goddess of Speech, is invoked to grant the gift of Dhi, inspired thought, and thought is linked with Vāc; Sarasvati is also known as the river of inspired thought.

Oneness is free of biases and judgements.
