Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of England, gives an explanation and definition of Maharishi Vedic University.
Maharishi Vedic University is a completely unique university in today's world. That uniqueness is embodied in the very name of the university, which Raja Peter defined in the following way:
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is the founder of the university.
The word 'university' means 'versified'—diversified—knowledge in a unified state: uni-versity. It means Total Knowledge in one encapsulated form; and that is the Veda; and that is embodied in the first syllable of Veda, 'A'.
If unified knowledge is not available at a university, then the diversified knowledge has no foundation; it has no basis. So this university really fulfils the term 'university' by offering the unified basis of all the diversified knowledge offered by the different faculties.
The Vedic University offers holistic knowledge derived from the Veda. In each faculty Total Knowledge is offered, and Total Knowledge is located in Veda, as embodied in its first syllable, 'A'.
What is Veda?
Veda is the field of Total Knowledge. It is located in the written text of Veda, but there is also an ancient oral tradition, through which the Veda has been preserved. It has been passed on through countless generations and, being verbal, it has never become distorted. It has been maintained in its absolute purity as the field of Total Knowledge. It is an oral tradition that speaks the value of Totality, the value of Atma, the value of the Self, the field of Total Knowledge, which is within us, and from which everything emerges.
'A' is the total sound of Atma; and from 'A' the total Veda flows. It is the sound of the total impulse of creation, the sound of Total Natural Law.
When we say that the Vedic University offers Total Knowledge, this includes both the scientific, intellectually satisfying, value of Total Knowledge which is systematic, provable, and progressing in a very orderly way, and also the technological value, the experiential aspect, which puts Total Knowledge into practice [the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme].
The Vedic University offers Total Knowledge on the basis of the science and technology of Total Natural Law, the Veda.
A very significant name
Thus, 'Maharishi Vedic University' is a very significant name. It has the name of the founder of the university; it has the name of Veda, the field of Total Knowledge; and it has the word 'university' which signifies holistic knowledge—all diversified knowledge on the basis of unified knowledge.
This is the University that will produce graduates who can know anything, achieve anything, and be anything in life. They will not just enjoy fulfilment themselves, but will simultaneously participate in creating fulfilment, peace, prosperity, and invincibility—everything good for everyone in every nation.
