Lothar Pirc, an expert in Ayurveda, the ancient Vedic science of natural health care, spoke recently about collaborations between one of the health centres he directs and a nearby university and affiliated academics.
Mr Pirc is the founder and managing director of the award-winning Maharishi Ayurveda Health Clinic in Bad Ems, Germany and President of the Maharishi Ayurveda Health Center in Lancaster, Massachusetts, USA. The latter centre has established a fruitful link with the University of Massachusetts–Dartmouth Center for Indic Studies.
One of the goals of the Center for Indic Studies is to disseminate understanding of issues relating to Indian arts, philosophy, culture, societal values, and customs. In this vein, the center organizes regular conferences.
Mr Pirc reported that the Director of the Center for Indic Studies, Dr Bal Ram Singh, has been receiving good feedback from his conferences highlighting the role of Vedic culture and ideas in modern India.
'[Professor Singh] is now encouraged to organize a huge conference on Vedic culture at the University of Massachusetts,' and has invited Mr Pirc to organize several speakers with expert knowledge of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Vedic science and technologies of consciousness.
Mr Pirc announced that Professor Tony Nader, MD, PhD, honoured by Maharishi as Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, first ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, has accepted to be the keynote speaker of the conference.
Other speakers include: Gary Kaplan, MD, PhD, from Hofstra University, on the neurophysiology of enlightenment; and Dr Jonathan Lipman, expert in Vedic architecture, on the role of Maharishi Vastu in Vedic civilization.
Mr Pirc will give a presentation about Maharishi's legacy, explaining that this will encompass 'Maharishi's Vedic science and technology, to restore complete knowledge for enlightenment, perfect health, and world peace, with the validation of modern science.
'In addition, the University of Massachusetts has invited two students from Maharishi University of Management to be on the panel of the organizing committee, and also to speak at the conference.'
Commenting further about the conference, to be held in July, Mr Pirc said, 'This is just the beginning of the conferences that will be organized by Professor Bal Ram Singh where [experts] will be presenting Maharishi's knowledge so beautifully.'
