Maharishi Vedic Science

Students take advanced courses in consciousness after they have taken the Science of Creative Intelligence course. The principles of the Science of Creative Intelligence, simply stated in familiar language, are based on the fundamental knowledge of natural law contained in the ancient and timeless Veda and the Vedic Literature.

Maharishi has restored this body of knowledge as a complete science of consciousness, with the practical technologies and theoretical knowledge for systematically developing higher states of consciousness in the individual and society.

Study of the unified basis of all disciplines.

In these courses on Maharishi Vedic Science, students study in more detail the field of pure intelligence, Transcendental Consciousness, from the understanding of both modern science and Vedic science.

Students learn how different modern sciences have glimpsed the Unified Field of all the laws of nature through objective investigation; how this field is described fully in the Vedic Literature; and how Maharishi Vedic Science gives the practical technologies to transform human life to be more and more in harmony with natural law—increasingly successful and fulfilling.

The knowledge of this course is summarized on large illustrated charts, developed by scientists who are experts in both their discipline and in Maharishi Vedic Science. These charts compare and contrast the modern scientific approach to the understanding of the Unified Field of all the laws of nature with the knowledge of this field from Vedic Science based on clear subjective experience of the enlightened sages of the Vedic tradition.

Studying human physiology as an expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature.

In their study of physiology and Vedic science, students are introduced to the profound recent discovery that the fundamental structures and functions of human physiology correspond precisely to the structures and functions of the 40 fundamental areas of Veda and the Vedic Literature. These 40 aspects of Veda and the Vedic Literature are in essence the fundamental structures of Natural Law reverberating within Transcendental Consciousness, the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature. Students appreciate that by developing their consciousness, they awaken the most subtle and powerful levels of their own intelligence, through which they can achieve mastery of life.

This study, as in all the courses on consciousness, is made relevant, personal, and practical to the students’ daily life in their direct experience of the field of their own total potential through the twice-daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique.

The 40 fundamental qualities of intelligence expressed in the 40 aspects of Veda and the Vedic Literature constitute the main part of this course on consciousness for Grades 10 to 12, and are also integrated into the standard academic subjects during those years.
