MVS 102 Sanskrit: Learning the Sounds of Nature

“Consciousness is the most basic element in creation; therefore the study of consciousness and research in consciousness, which is offered by the traditional Vedic Literature, gives the student the ability to do anything and achieve anything with the support of the evolutionary power of Natural Law.” —Maharishi

Reading the Vedic Literature in Sanskrit is a new technology of Maharishi Vedic Science to speed the development of higher states of consciousness. In this course, students learn to read the Vedic Literature in Sanskrit and discover how this practice actually strengthens brain functioning. Students also learn the basic principles of Maharishi Vedic Science, including the recent discovery of how human physiology forms a perfect replica of Natural Law, as embodied in the 40 aspects of the Veda and Vedic Literature. This historic discovery reveals that the natural laws governing the universe are the same laws governing our physiology —meaning that each of us has access, within our own physiology, to the total potential of Natural Law. This in turn gives us the potential to know anything, do anything, and accomplish anything. (4 credits)

MVS 208 Fundamentals of Maharishi Vedic Science: Atma and Veda — the Self-Referral Dynamics of Consciousness Underlying the Individual and the Universe

This course systematically investigates Maharishi’s explanation of the self-referral dynamics and structure of pure consciousness, as being the ultimate source and content of all the Laws of Nature that are responsible for the creation and orderly functioning of both individual and universal life. Topics include: the analysis and synthesis of the Nature and range of Atma, the universal Self of every individual; how the fluctuations of Atma appear as the structure and qualities of the four Vedas in terms of their qualities and sequential unfolding; how the structures and functions of the Vedas correspond to the human physiology and the cosmic physiology of the cosmos; the reading of the Vedic Literature in Sanskrit; and exploring the correlation between the cosmic creative process as expressed in the Vedas with theories of the structure and functioning of the unified field Superstring theory of modern quantum physics. (4 credits)

MVS 210 The Vedic Literature in Maharishi Vedic Science: Sequential Expression of Total Natural Law, the Constitution of the Universe

This course explores the 36 branches of the Vedic Literature that are contained within and yet have sequentially unfolded from the Rik, Sama, Yajur and Atharva Vedas. Topics include: the 6 “Limbs of the Veda” called the Vedanga: Shiksha, Kalp, Vyakaran, Nirukt Chhand and Jyotish, which express the Vedic knowledge of the specific engineering mechanics of creation; the 6 “Subordinate Limbs of the Veda” called the Upanga and also known as the 6 systems of Indian philosophy: Nyaya, Vaisheshik, Sankhya, Yoga, Karma Mimansa and Vedanta, which explore how to systematically and completely understand and experience the full range of any object of inquiry. All the 36 branches of the Vedic Literature are examined in relation to their specific qualities and contributions to the Totality of knowledge and the infinite organizing power called the Constitution of the Universe—the totality of Natural Law that governs the universe with perfect order. The structure and functions of the Vedic Literature are also explored in terms of their 236 corresponding expressions as the various aspects of the individual human physiology and the cosmic physiology of the universe. (4 credits) Prerequisite: MVS 208

PH 260 Maharishi Self-Pulse Reading: Measuring the Impulses of the Body’s Intelligence and Restoring Balance in the Physiology through the Touch of Three Fingertips

Self-Pulse reading is the most ancient and most natural means of determining the level of balance or imbalance in the mind and body. This course presents Maharishi’s revival of this ancient technology to determine the state of the inner intelligence of the body. Everyone should learn pulse reading to maintain his or her own health. Pulse reading allows one to detect imbalances early, before they manifest as disease. Pulse allows one to precisely determine where the imbalance is and how to restore balance. Furthermore, pulse is therapeutic in itself. Just taking the pulse increases the balance in the pulse and therefore the balance of the whole mind and body. Taking the pulse enlivens the connection between mind and body, consciousness and matter. (4 credits)

PH 262 Diet, Digestion, and Nutrition: Imbibing Intelligence from Food and the Environment —Enlivening Strong Digestion and Selecting a Diet Ideally Suited to the Individual

Diet, digestion, and nutrition are fundamental to health. How we metabolize food and drink directly affects the strength, vitality, immunity, and longevity of the physiology. In this course, detailed knowledge of the influences of foods on the physiology is described. Also the influence of consciousness on the process of digestion and nutrition is discussed carefully. Different foods are categorized according to their influence on the three principal governing qualities of intelligence in the body: communication and movement, transformation, and structure. The balance of these three principles determines the balance, strength, immunity, and health of the body. And that balance is greatly influenced by the food that is taken, and the state of awareness of the one who is eating. This course provides very practical knowledge of what to eat, when to eat, and how to eat to maintain or restore perfect balance. (4 credits)

PH 263 Maharishi Yoga Asanas: Vedic Exercise to Enliven Mind-Body Coordination to Support Pure Awareness, the State of Yoga

This practical course presents the knowledge and experience of enlivening the unified state of consciousness, or Yoga, through the physiological approach of Yoga Asanas. Maharishi has revived the essential understanding that Yoga means unified level of consciousness or Transcendental Consciousness, and that Yoga, one of the 40 aspects of the Vedic Literature provides the technologies to unfold that experience. The physical postures of Yoga Asanas are traditional positions that enliven the connection between mind and body, consciousness and physiology. When done properly, Maharishi YogaSM asanas help dissolve stress and give the experience of settledness and expansion in the direction of the experience of pure consciousness, or Yoga. This unique practical course includes regular practice of Maharishi Yoga asanas as well as the understanding of their specific effects on the mind and body. (4 credits)
