Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

“The grand conclusion of all this knowledge and experience is a beautiful, divine mankind, a cosmic man, a man in the light of God, a man in the light of the total constitution of the universe, embodiment of the total constitution of the universe.” –Maharishi, January 14, 2007

Under the guidance of Dr. Peter Warburton, this course traces the development of the Total Knowledge curriculum through fascinating recordings of sessions with Maharishi as he unfolds the charts and curriculum in ever-greater detail. Every session includes profound gems of knowledge of our own Self, the Atma, and the flow of the Self into the Veda, the human body and the whole universe.

Prerequisite: Total Knowledge and Higher States of Consciousness, Part 1 and Part 2 or equivalent. This is an advanced course for TM Teachers and graduates of the TM-Sidhi® course, plus those Meditators who have a familiarity and comfort with many of the terms and concepts used in Maharishi Vedic ScienceSM.

Course Description

In this new series of courses on Maharishi’s Total Knowledge, we have now reached the period in 2007 where the presentation of the charts and curriculum begin to take their final shape.

“Today, the whole field of experience has blossomed into that richness of total knowledge that every aspect of life, small or big, here, there or everywhere, will be a flood of bliss.” – Maharishi, January 12, 2007

This is the fifth course of this Maharishi’s Total Knowledge 2.0 series which is a behind-the-scenes look at Maharishi’s development of the Total Knowledge charts and curriculum. Please note that it is fine to take these courses in any order.

In the words of one course participant: “Each course, another drop of that deep, deep silence of Guru Dev, all those years, deep in the forests, all those years melting away, all those forests whispering down through the ages to those who listen with their whole Being.  Unfathomable and yet so real.”

The other courses in this series are Total Knowledge 2.0, Emergence of the Veda, Revelations of the Flow of Atma, and Silence Speaks.
