What is Maharishi Vedic Science?

Maharishi Vedic Science (MVS) has its source in the ancient Vedic tradition of India. The term “Vedic” is derived from the Sanskrit word “Veda,” which means “knowledge.”

MVS connects this ancient tradition of knowledge, as brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, with the discoveries of modern science to help answer fundamental questions about life. Maharishi worked for years with scientists, educators, and Vedic scholars to develop an integrated approach to knowledge, unifying diverse fields of study.

When you study MVS, you’ll become familiar with this approach, identifying the principles that connect all subjects and exploring the nature of your own inner self and how it relates to the outside world. You’ll also learn how this knowledge can be applied to practical situations to help create a more peaceful and harmonious world.


What you’ll learn

  • How the brain functions during meditation practice
  • How you can help create peace in your surrounding environment
  • How to read Sanskrit for its effects on the physiology

  • How to work with others, write, research, communicate, and create in new ways
