Over the last 50 years Maharishi has either personally visited or provided training in over 130 countries. Scientific conferences, teacher training courses, world peace assemblies, coherence-creating demonstration projects, public lectures, television broadcasts—through all these and many more Maharishi has brought new knowledge to the world on a daily basis. Tens of thousands of teachers have been trained, hundreds of thousands have become advanced practitioners, and altogether over 5 million people from all walks of life have learned Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques.
All this has made Transcendental Meditation the most carefully researched, widely practiced, and effective technique for personal development in modern history. Maharishi brought to the world the exclusive knowledge of seven states of consciousness—the three commonly known states of waking, dreaming, and deep sleep states of consciousness along with four higher states of consciousness: Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness (all of which can be practically lived in daily life for more energy, efficiency, happiness, creativity, healthfulness, and success).
Following the introduction of Transcendental Meditation to develop the mind, body, and consciousness, Maharishi further developed programmes for the physiology and neurophysiology by reviving the ancient system of natural medicine known as Maharishi Ayur-Veda. This natural system of prevention-oriented, side-effect-free medicine reached its fullest development as the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health, which utilizes the intimate relationship between consciousness and physiology to create a system of health care based on the field of consciousness as a field of perfect health. This most perfect system of health care is now being introduced around the world through Maharishi Vedic Health Clinics, Hospitals, and Medical Training Colleges.
In the area of education, Maharishi introduced Consciousness-Based Education, demonstrating that the full brain functioning of any student can only be developed through transcending. Over the years since Maharishi began teaching, millions of students have undertaken the practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programmes, including Yogic flying (an advanced aspect of the Transcendental Meditation Programme) and increased their creativity, improved their grades, and strengthened their learning ability and IQ—all based on specific physiological changes in brain coherence and functioning.
Adding even more momentum to his development offerings, Maharishi then unfolded Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, the Vedic science of architecture, bringing to light the intimate connection between human physiology and the environment—how the structuring dynamics of the building influences the behavioral dynamics of the occupants and connects individual life with greater cosmic life.
Maharishi also recognized the relationship between pure, vital food and the development of full human potential. Working with traditional Vedic pandits and Western scientists and farmers, Maharishi developed the applied science of Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture to create Vedic food for Vedic consciousness. Applied globally, this programme is culturing the unused lands with agricultural potential for creating a world organic breadbasket. Maharishi sees that the organic food, fiber, and biofuel crops produced in this programme can promote life and remove poverty in all the developing nations.
To support all of these programmes, Maharishi founded the Global Financial Capital of New York, at 70 Broad Street in the financial district of New York, with branches in all the major financial markets of the world. The purpose of this Capital is to inspire investors around the world to support projects that favor life on earth, making investments that create wealth and a better world in the process.
In addition to developing systems of gaining and applying knowledge, Maharishi has shown his greatness in his ability to verify the authenticity and effectiveness of the knowledge he is offering from all perspectives: from the perspective of the Vedic tradition, as expressed in the Vedic texts; from the perspective of modern science in the language of our time; from the perspective of personal experience—the subjective approach to knowledge gained from the practice of Yoga—and finally from the scriptural texts of all the religions. From these four pillars of knowledge, Maharishi has verified the authenticity and effectiveness of this knowledge.
