Two hundred thirty-four students graduated, including 54 undergraduate students, 177 graduate students, and 3 PhD students, representing 41 countries.
The commencement address was given by Stephen Collins, the distinguished American actor, writer, director, musician, and long-time participant in the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programmes.
In his commencement address, Mr Collins said to the graduates: 'If you want to help this country survive and become invincible the way Maharishi Mahesh Yogi wanted it, you are going to be in the business of changing minds, and your meditation is a tool that will help you enormously.' He encouraged graduates to stay consciously 'countercultural', by which he meant not opposing the culture but moving it forward—for example, opting out of the petroleum-based economy, eating fresh organic locally-grown non-GMO foods, and seeking enlightened health care. He envisioned a new brand of patriotism. 'A patriot in the year 2010 is someone who is willing to create a society that runs on sustainable energy,' he said. 'A patriot in 2010 gets the word out about the Maharishi Effect.'
