STC 508: Science and Technology of Consciousness

The Science and Technology of Consciousness (STC) is a basic course in Consciousness-BasedSM education that is the unique educational approach of Maharishi University of Management. Our university was inspired by the teachings of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a scientist and Vedic scholar from India. The practical aspect of STC is the Transcendental Meditation technique, a simple non-religious mental technique that produces positive effects on mental health, physical health, and social behaviors. For more information, go to www.tm.org.

The goal of this course is for you to gain experience and understanding of consciousness as the unifying basis of all branches of knowledge. This course provides a foundation for all other courses you will take at Maharishi University of Management and introduces you to key ideas and terms relevant to your studies and to your experience here.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Understand the relationship between your individual self and your universal Self—the field of pure inner wakefulness, unbounded pure consciousness, at the source of thought.
  • Use principles of the Science of Creative Intelligence to deepen your understanding of foundational principles in the arts, sciences, and humanities.
  • Articulate how growth of consciousness and the study of inner subjectivity enrich education and other areas of life.

MVS 461 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 Mahesh Yogi’s revival of this ancient technology to determine the state of the inner intelligence of the body. Everyone should learn Maharishi Self-PulseSM reading to maintain one’s own health.

Maharishi Self-Pulse reading allows one to detect imbalances early, before they manifest as disease. Reading the pulse allows one to precisely determine where the imbalance is and how to restore balance.

Furthermore, pulse reading is therapeutic in itself. Just taking the pulse increases the balance in the pulse and thereby the balance of the whole mind and body. Taking the pulse enlivens the connection between mind and body, consciousness and matter.


MVS 504 Physiology, Consciousness and Veda

Awakening Your Total Brain

In this course, students learn how the brain is designed to be a perfect reflector of total Natural Law. They see how consciousness structures the physiology and how the innumerable connections among the ten billion brain cells enable a person to live in higher states of consciousness. Students measure their own growth of consciousness as part of the course.


MVS 510-DE Bhagavad-Gita-1 Chapters 1-3

(followed by MVS511-DE (4 credits) Bhagavad-Gita-2 Chapters 4-6)

The Principles of Dharma, the Eternal Nature of Life, and Effortlessness of Transcending as the Basis of Right Action. This course studies Maharishi’s translation and commentary on the Bhagavad-Gita, a work that sequentially unfolds profound principles of the development of human consciousness, its relationship to knowledge, and its application to improve the quality of individual and collective life.

The Bhagavad-Gita is a textbook for Maharishi Vedic Science, containing the essence of the detailed knowledge of consciousness contained in the Vedic Literature. Course topics include the scope, structure, and dynamics of human behavior; higher states of consciousness; collective consciousness; and the solution to the fundamental dilemma at the basis of human suffering.

MVS 525 Sanskrit

“Reading the Vedic Literature in sequence is the procedure to spontaneously train the brain physiology and the whole physiology of speech to function in the most orderly way so that every thought, speech, and action is spontaneously promoted in the evolutionary direction of Natural Law, and thereby spontaneously enjoys full support of the evolutionary quality of intelligence that upholds order and evolution in the entire universe.”

~ Maharishi

Reading the Vedic Literature in Sanskrit is a technology of Maharishi Vedic Science to accelerate the unfoldment of higher states of consciousness. In this 10-lesson course, students will learn to read the texts of the Vedic Literature—such as the Bhagavad-Gita and Ramayan—in the Devanagari script. It is not a course for learning grammar and meaning, but experience and research has found that reading the Vedic Literature for its sound enhances experiences of higher states of consciousness. Students will also study many of the fundamental principles of Maharishi Vedic Science, particularly those that relate to Maharishi’s program of reading Sanskrit.


MVS 540 Self Referral in Maharishi Vedic Science

In this course, students discover the fabrics of immortality in their own physiology. Topics include the self-interacting dynamics of consciousness, the Constitution of the Universe, the forty aspects of the Veda and Vedic Literature, Maharishi’s Apaurusheya Bhashya, Rik Veda, and Vedic Devata in the human physiology.

MVS 544 Maharishi Vedic Science and Physics

Physics of Invincibility

This course demonstrates how the historical development of unified quantum field theory has been intimately concerned with resolving the apparent opposition between observer and observed. In this context, the student can readily understand how Maharishi Vedic Science completes and enriches the most sophisticated discoveries of advanced physics.


MVS 552 Unfolding the Total Potential of Human Life in Higher States of Consciousness

The goal of the course is to gain a deeper understanding of higher states of consciousness as described in Maharishi Vedic Science, and a more profound appreciation for how they can be cultivated through Maharishi’s technologies of consciousness.

A primary objective of this course will be to accelerate the development of consciousness through an ideal daily routine and through daily practice of Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program.

Required text for the course: The Supreme Awakening, by Craig Pearson, Ph.D., available at mumpress.com http://www.mumpress.com/books/other-authors/1tsa.html


MVS 553 Veda and Vedic literature in Human Physiology

MVS 555 Absolute theory of Government

Ideal Administration: Alliance with Nature’s Government

This course will examine the methodology of creating a permanent state of world peace. Topics will include: the structure and function of the total potential of Natural Law — the Government of Nature; the significance of Collective Consciousness and its effect on government; the Global Country of World Peace; and, scientific research on Vedic technologies that align individual and national awareness with the infinite intelligence and creative power of Nature’s Government, which administers the universe with perfect order.


MVS 559 Modern Science and Maharishi Vedic Science

This course examines the role of science in the acquisition of knowledge. It considers the basic components of the scientific method, the fundamentals of logic and important issues in the philosophy of science including the strengths and limitations of both objectivity and subjectivity. This is then compared and contrasted with the integrative approach of Maharishi Vedic Science, which offers study and research in the field of pure consciousness, the ultimate reality of one’s own Self.

MVS 560 Principles of Collective Consciousness in Maharishi Vedic Science

In this course students explore theory, technologies, and empirical research relating to collective consciousness in Maharishi Vedic Science, and the relevance of this knowledge for the future of humanity.Students dive deeply into understanding and experience of the unity of existence, while also developing scientific thinking skills in examining for themselves published research on the Maharishi Effect – the effect of individual and group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs.


MVS 585 Capstone

Celebrating Perfection in Education: Synthesizing the Year of Study and Preparing for the Future

In this course, students review their growth and understanding of higher states of consciousness by writing two papers: a personal narrative of their experience during their course of study in the M.A. program, and an academic paper reviewing the main principles of Maharishi Vedic Science they have learned in their coursework. In addition, students view tapes of Maharishi on education and give written and oral feedback on their educational experience in the MA program.
