The article features Karen Aoki, a PhD student in Maharishi Vedic Science at Maharishi University of Management. Karen grew up in Japan and trained to be a classical flutist from a very young age. She earned a bachelor's degree in music and flute performance from Eastman School of Music in Rochester, New York, USA.
When she learned the Transcendental Meditation technique during her second year in college, Karen enjoyed her experience of pure consciousness—the field of inner silence deep within the mind—during the practice so much that she wanted to learn more. As soon as she graduated in 2005, she enrolled in the MA in Maharishi Vedic Science program at MUM.
In 2008, Karen began her PhD and decided to do her research in reading the Vedic literature in Sanskrit. ''As soon as I started to read the Vedic literature, it fulfilled the very same experiential value that music used to fulfill,'' she said. ''It's like performing. I am feeling the quality of the sounds. It's like a piece of music.'' She also learned to play the bansuri flute and now finds playing music more fulfilling, and enjoys performing.
