During the Commencement ceremonies of Maharishi University of Enlightenment on 24 June, Dr Cathy Gorini, Dean of Maharishi College of Enlightenment, announced the start of the first Bachelor of Arts programme at the college. Maharishi College of Enlightenment is a division of Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa, USA, under the guidance of Maharishi University of Enlightenment.
Maharishi College of Enlightenment will begin with a BA programme for women in August 2010. The college is the first institution to offer the curriculum of Total Knowledge developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi between 2005 and 2007.
Dr Gorini explained that this curriculum has two components: direct personal experience and academic study. Students practise the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, in order to gain experience of the transcendental field of pure consciousness, glimpsed by physicists as the Unified Field of Natural Law.
The academic programme covers twelve areas: Law, education, health, agriculture, economics, administration, architecture and engineering, defence, communication, music and arts, religion and culture, and supreme political science—all in the light of Maharishi's Science and Technology of Consciousness.
'Total knowledge is structured in the students through analysis and synthesis,' Dr Gorini said—'repeatedly integrating the diversity of these twelve fields of knowledge with their unified basis in the field of consciousness.'
As students progress through the Bachelor's degree programme, their understanding of each of the twelve fields of knowledge will expand and deepen, while their consciousness is developed through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme. All aspects of the curriculum, environment, and routine of Maharishi College of Enlightenment are designed to maximum students' growth towards their full development in enlightenment.
'Through this curriculum every student without effort gains more and more fullness of knowledge and eventually embodies Total Knowledge in the state of enlightenment,' Dr Gorini quoted Maharishi as saying.
'We welcome all those who wish to gain these benefits,' Dr Gorini said.
All those interested in this programme are invited to contact the Admissions Office of Maharishi University of Management for more information.
