At the recent inauguration of 58 Maharishi Hospitals and Maharishi Colleges of Vedic Medicine around the world on Krishna Janmashtami, Dr Walter Molk introduced a distinguished family of guests from India to the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU Holland.

The guests included Dr Prabhat Kumar, Professor of Mathematics from the University of Puna and a former Air Force officer; Mrs Kiran Kumar, MA in Economics and Director and Founder of the Urvashi Katha Srishti College of Dance; and their daughter, Dr Urvashi Shrivastava, a PhD in Psychology, who also holds three separate degrees in three of the most authentic traditional Vedic Dances. Dr Shrivastava gave a beautiful demonstration of Vedic Dance Therapy that, her father explained, mirrored Lord Krishna dancing in a garden of flowers, along with the humming honeybees.

Dr Molk explained that Dr Shrivastava, a senior faculty member of the Urvashi Katha Srishti College of Dance, which is recognized by the Maharashtra Government, is an expert in dance therapy, combining consciousness and physiology through Vedic dance. He pointed out that Vedic dance is an art that also has a very therapeutic, soothing, and relaxing effect on different areas of the body. 'If one is able to have perfect coordination of physical movement and consciousness, then this serves as a means of developing higher states of consciousness. Maharishi has said that Vedic dance is a means of attaining Brahmavidya, the totality of knowledge.'
