Swadharma , Swavalamban and Swaraaj are Vedic expressions. Vedic civilization was knowledge-based civilization. Vedic expressions carried deep, holistic and profound meaning. They expressed universal truths and evolutionary principles of natural law that meant to raise individual life to enlightenment and social life to a state of collective harmony, order and progress. We observe that these three expressions have the same prefix, ‘Swa’. To unravel the beauty and depth that lies in these expressions, this chapter explains the totality of the meaning of the expression ‘Swa’ as it was used in Vedic Science during those times. The experience and understanding of ‘Swa’—Atma, formed the foundation of all Vedic studies. Furthermore Maharishi Mahesh Yogi ’s technique of Transcendental Meditation has been presented to describe these three Vedic expressions and their impact on the enlightenment of the individual.
