In our BA in Maharishi Vedic Science, you’ll explore the nature of reality, read ancient texts, relate principles of physics to Vedic knowledge, and be able to connect it all to your own experience – all while living in the supportive spiritual community of Fairfield, Iowa.
Maharishi Vedic Science has its source in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. The term “Vedic” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Veda,” which means “knowledge.”
Maharishi Vedic Science brings together this ancient Vedic tradition of knowledge and the discoveries of modern science to answer fundamental questions about life.
When you study Maharishi Vedic Science, you’ll explore the nature of your own inner self and how it relates to the wider world. You’ll also learn how this knowledge can be applied to practical situations to make the world a more peaceful place.
