Dr Girish Varma went on to highlight some of the university's many achievements of the past year, during a recent presentation on Maharishi's programmes in India. Dr Varma is Director-General of the Global Capital of World Peace at the centre (Brahmasthan) of India.

In the new academic year 2012-2013, the university is introducing interdisciplinary PhD programmes, and many short-term diploma programmes in Maharishi Vedic Science and Technology.
The university also organizes Vedic celebrations in all of its campuses and associate institutes, 'inviting a large number of local citizens and inspiring them to learn Transcendental Meditation and to gain Vedic knowledge.'
Maharishi Vedic University has organized seminars and courses—from one week to three months—for over 400 participants from 32 countries. These seminars are being offered at a special campus, known as the Bijauri campus, for international guests at the Brahmasthan of India.
The university is also organizing a 4-10 day international seminar in February 2013 at Prayag, India, during the Maha Kumbh Mela celebration in that location.
Dr Varma praised the dedicated work of the Maharishi Vedic University vice chancellor, Prof. Bhuvnesh Sharma, and of all the administrators and faculty, and expressed the resolution for the university 'to continue to grow and bring knowledge to a much larger number of students'.
