Course Description

Maharishi’s Master, Guru Dev, was lauded as Vedānt Incarnate by the President of India, and Maharishi, in attuning his mind and heart to Guru Dev, quickly rose to that fully enlightened state of life.

Over the years Maharishi revealed the reality of living Vedānt in Brahmi Chetana—Aham Brahmasmi, I Am Totality—in his teaching to the world. From the moment he began to speak in Kerala, India, in 1955, he spoke the ultimate reality. Through the years he unfolded it in his expressions of Total Knowledge and in his writings. And through the applied value of this supreme knowledge, he created a bright future for the world.

The course is highlighted with Maharishi talks, and readings range from Maharishi’s Beacon Light of the Himalayas to Constitution of India Fulfilled through Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation, which contains in the footnotes the most advanced and rich expressions of Vedānt ever published.

Bevan has done a brilliant job with this course.  I hope he will do more.

Dr Bevan Morris has, as always, proven himself an accurate and pure conduit for Maharishi’s Pure Knowledge. 

Every lesson is filled to overflowing with the reality of Vedanta –  one can enjoy again Maharishi lectures from past years which now, seen in the light of this course, provide deeper insights into Vedanta. 

Thrilling to see the beautiful charts personally drawn by Maharishi to illustrate his own cognitions of Veda.

Taking this course has enriched my experience more than I can say, it has shone a new light on an aspect of my personal experience which was there but not yet recognised – now it has a fresher, deeper meaning. 

Very inspiring!

Uniquely and very well presented. I learnt new things and saw many things in a new light.
