More than 100 Vedic scholars and thought leaders from the community and from out of town came together at Maharishi University of Management this summer for a conference on ''Vedic Living in a Modern World'' cosponsored by the World Association for Vedic Studies.
The 120 presentations, panel discussions, and plenary talks covered topics such as higher states of consciousness, the importance of asanas, principles of management, Vedic insight into quantum theory, Consciousness-BasedSM education, Maharishi AyurVeda® health care, the effect of the Transcendental Meditation® technique on gene expression, and the mathematics of pure consciousness.
The conference, held on the MUM campus in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, brought together ''a diverse group of people who share a profound respect for and love of the holistic knowledge and life-supporting culture of ancient India,'' said Peter Scharf, co-chair.
Among those presenting were 75 scholars from out of town, including Canada and India, and another 20 from India via Skype.
Some of those with roots in India previously had no idea what Maharishi University of Management offered. And they were impressed with what they found. Toward the end of the conference a small group of University officials and faculty met with two participants who are board members of the Dharma Civilization Foundation, which is dedicated to supporting the proper teaching of the Veda in higher education and which has endowed chairs in Vedic studies at some U.S. universities.
One of the board members said that, as an Indian, he wanted to thank everyone on campus for what the University has been doing for so many years, and for helping him at last to really understand the true depth and practical applicability of his Vedic tradition.
