Plans are underway for offering Consciousness-Based Education through online courses, which are being developed by Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.), Maharishi University of Enlightenment, and the International Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education.

Speaking on Maharishi Global Family Chat,* Raja Tom Stanley, Raja of eight countries for the Global Country of World Peace, described how Consciousness-Based Education will be offered through the web, including specific action steps being pursued throughout the world.

The online education programme will address varying levels of interest and commitment among students. Types of offerings will include Knowledge for Fulfilment courses in different areas of Vedic knowledge; individual courses that can be credit-bearing; courses which can be transferred towards degrees at institutions such as M.U.M.; and technical certificates in areas such as accounting, management, nursing, or sustainability. In addition, said Raja Stanley, full Bachelor's and Master's degrees will be offered online.

As for the experiential component of Consciousness-Based Education, students will be informed of their local Maharishi Invincibility Centres** where they can learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme. Accordingly, centres around the world will be informed of the online course offerings. 'In this way, students will not only enhance their online education through experience of pure knowledge, but will also develop relationships with their local Global Country of World Peace organizations,' explained Raja Stanley.

After introductory courses in Maharishi's programmes, the students will then have further opportunities to visit their centres for checking of their Transcendental Meditation practice, advanced lectures, and to learn the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying. Ultimately, the online courses—by attracting new students to local centres—will serve as tools for creating national invincibility.

Specific online Consciousness-Based Education programmes currently being developed include offerings through Indian universities in the areas of Maharishi's Vedic Science, Computer Science, and Management; an online Bachelor's in Business Administration in Thailand; and an online Bachelor's degree from Maharishi University of Vedic Medicine in Switzerland.

Finally, Raja Stanley outlined three key action steps necessary for establishing online Consciousness-Based Education programmes. First, it will be necessary to determine the laws for establishing a higher education institution within a given country. Second, it will be important to understand the interests and needs of students, both in terms of course topic and level, and in terms of financial aid. And finally, already existing Consciousness-Based Education institutions should adapt their programmes so that they may be offered around the world.

'Through these online programmes, we hope to establish an infinitely correlated flow within the Global Country of World Peace, in enlightenment and invincibility' though these beautiful programmes of knowledge from Maharishi, Raja Stanley said in closing.

* Raja Stanley's report was featured on the 11 January 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.

** Maharishi Invincibility Centres in major cities around the world offer the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, including the Transcendental Meditation Programme, to promote enlightenment for every individual and invincibility for every nation through development of full potential in every area of life.
