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.
When you study Maharishi Vedic Science you will explore the full range of life and human potential — and the underlying intelligence that administers the entire universe. You’ll also examine how this knowledge can be applied to enrich all fields of knowledge and endeavor.
Vedic Science brings together the ancient Indian tradition of knowledge (Veda) and discoveries of modern science to understand fundamental questions about life.
The seers of 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”.
Similarly, modern physics has concluded that underlying the diversity of matter is a non-material field whose self-interactions generate time, space and observable forces and particles. Both approaches identify a non-material field that underlies observable change.
You will investigate comparable descriptions of life in the writings of saints of major world religions. The experience of inner transcendence is a common theme in all world religions.
“This state of pure knowledge, when knower, known, and process of knowing are in the self-referral, is that all-powerful, immortal, infinite dynamism at the unmanifest basis of creation. This is Vedic Science—all about the knower, the known, and the process of knowing; all about consciousness, both in its self-referral, self-interacting state, and as it expresses itself in the infinite variety of the whole creation, that performance of nature which goes on and on eternally in all spheres of time, past, present, and future. The knowledge of this most basic principle of life—the self-interacting dynamics of consciousness—is the science of pure knowledge, the science of Veda.”
"Maharishi Vedic Science is the science of Veda. 'Veda' means pure knowledge and the infinite organizing power that is inherent in the structure of pure knowledge. Pure knowledge is the state of awareness in which consciousness knows itself alone, when awareness is completely self referral, when awareness has nothing other than itself in its structure." - Maharishi
