MUM and the Global Development Office is excited to announce the Rotating University course in India, with MUM Assistant Professor of MVS Sue Brown, along with Bob and Carol Markowitz who have led previous courses to India, from January 15 to February 20, 2014. REGISTER NOW

 MUM is excited to announce the Rotating University to India course from January 15 to February 20, 2014. During this five week course, we will offer two weeks of deep, silent experiences. One week at the Brahmasthan of India; and a second week in deluxe accommodation in a tiger reserve in the deep forests where Guru Dev took his Silence for 40 years. The time at the Brahmasthan will include long meditation, listening to live Vedic performances and profound knowledge.  We will hear 1331 Pandits performing the Rudra Bhishek Yagya – a yagya for world peace.

During our settled days in the forest, we will go deeply into Maharishi’s Yoga Asana course. In addition to the two weeks of silent experience, the course will include three weeks of travel to ancient sites around India that are sacred to Hindus, Muslims and Buddhists. We will experience the ancient and modern Vedic culture of India; visit Allahabad site of the memorial to Maharishi and home to the recent Kumbha Mela that had over 100 million people in attendance; take a dip in the Ganges River; and visit the Ashram of the Shankaracharya where Maharishi spent most of  his 13 years with Guru Dev.

Other highlights include: spending our first days on the beautiful beaches of Kerala , which will include day trips to the southern-most tip of India, Kanya Kumari, where Maharishi first had the thought to give the blessings of the Himalaya, and then also to Trivandrum where he gave his first lectures. We will take a boat ride down the Ganges at the most ancient continually occupied city in the world – Varanasi visit Sarnath where Buddha gave his first lecture, see the Taj Mahal, and spend time in Rishikesh where Maharishi had his first meditation and teacher training academy. We will visit ancient caves and take a rafting trip down the Ganges in the foothills of the Himalayas.  

 Our experience of India will be enriched and deepened by readings from Maharishi’s books and branches of the Vedic literature, including the Ramayana, and by taking the special 16-lesson Yoga Asana course. This will be a wonderful opportunity to be immersed in the Vedic wisdom that Maharishi revitalized for the world, as part of a supportive group focused on profound knowledge and experience of enlightenment. The Rotating University to India course will be a fully guided tour with comfortable hotels and healthy food.
