What is Maharishi Vedic Science?

Maharishi Vedic Science is the science and technology of consciousness. It has its source in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. The term “Vedic” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Veda” which means "knowledge" — knowledge of the field of pure intelligence that is the source of all the diverse fields of knowledge.

Integrating Veda and modern science

Vedic Science brings together the ancient Indian tradition of knowledge (Veda) and discoveries of modern science to understand fundamental questions about life.

Who am I? Where do my thoughts come from?

The seers of the Vedic tradition looked inside themselves to find answers to questions like: "Who am I?",” Where do my thoughts come from?", "What is the source of  my creativity?" They found that underlying their thoughts, perceptions, and actions is a field of pure intelligence, a field of Being, of "I am".

A non-material field underlying change

Similarly,  modern physics has concluded that underlying the diversity of  matter is a non-material field whose self-interactions generates time, space and observable forces and particles. Both approaches identify a non-material field that underlies observable change.

Experience of transcendence in world religions

Comparable descriptions of life are found in the writings of masters and saints of major world religions. This common experience of inner transcendence is a common theme in all the world’s religions.

What is the value of Maharishi Vedic Science?

Maharishi Vedic Science helps you experience and understand higher states of consciousness.

It also develops the qualities most important for whatever career you embark upon.

Through Maharishi’s techniques and knowledge for development of consciousness, you’ll gain a better understanding of yourself and your place in the world — not just intellectually, but by directly experiencing your own inner nature. Explore universal, fundamental principles — and acquire self-knowledge for growth, transformation, and success in life.

By experiencing your own pure consciousness, your thinking and actions will become more coherent, harmonious, and rewarding. Students often remark how “things just start to go my way” as they gain the ability to fulfill desires from inside themselves. Ultimately, our world is a reflection of who we are — everyone shapes his or her own reality.

Student Spotlight

As an undergraduate at a different university, I was often under pressure: stressed out and unhappy.
Finding MUM and Maharishi Vedic Science was one of the best things that happened to me. I learned the importance of a healthy routine and have almost forgotten what it feels like to be stressed out. I now see that life is blissful, even though my plate isn’t yet completely full. Everyday I grow and move towards more and more fulfillment. I feel great!
