Ultimate Gifts Bringing Fulfilment to Life


Maharishi University of Enlightenment


Maharishi University of Enlightenment (MUE) is licensed by the Board of Governors of the University of North Carolina to grant bachelors, masters, and doctoral degrees degrees in Maharishi Vedic Science, the science of consciousness.

Founded in 1998, it is the first university in America to offer a curriculum that is totally Vedic Science based—Total Knowledge based—enlightenment based.

This university is also unique in its emphasis on the direct experience of Vedic Science. The experience-based approach of Maharishi University of Enlightenment allows students to take advantage of one of the key principles of Maharishi’s Vedic Education,  the principle of ‘knowing by Being’.

Through their daily practice of Maharishi’s Technologies of Consciousness—especially the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme including Yogic Flying—the students immerse themselves in the direct personal experience of the forty aspects of the Veda and Vedic Literature lively in the field of pure consciousness.

This field of pure consciousness—the students’ own Self, or Atma—is the home of all the Laws of Nature, the qualities of the Veda and Vedic literature.

Such intimate familiarity with the fundamental administering intelligence of Nature—the Constitution of the Universe—makes it very easy for the students to know any of its elaborated expressions.

All knowledge is found in their own Self, their own Atma. As it is expressed in the Vedic Literature, they have come to ‘know that by knowing which everything is known’.

The practical benefit of this approach can be seen in how effortlessly and enthusiastically the students of Maharishi University of Enlightenment grasp the concepts of any of the academic disciplines and the ease with which their desires are fulfilled.

‘Through this programme perfection begins to dawn in your daily life and you find yourself living and experiencing in ways you never thought possible. Your heart expands, enlightenment blossoms in your awareness, and you discover the whole universe shining within you.’

—A student of Maharishi University of Enlightenment

‘As significant as the fruit of Vedic Education is for the individual, it is even more significant for the world. The influence of harmony and coherence that radiates from a student body collectively engaged in research in consciousness is highly rewarding for the whole world.

'By educating individuals to utilize their total brain potential, Maharishi University of Enlightenment is uncovering the most precious natural resource on earth, and creating a quality of life that can be justifiably termed Heaven on Earth.’
