Maharishi’s Total Knowledge 2.0 Series

“This knowledge is a huge blessing.” —RS
“In awe and bliss.” —MR
“You just need to take it.” —JC More reviews >


Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

In this course, Maharishi takes us on an incomparable journey from the Self of everyone to ultimate unity in Brahm, totality. In Maharishi’s words: “It is the unified field that through sound diversifies itself into infinite diversity. … All the diverse values have their whole existence in eternal unity — and that is wholeness. That is Brahm.”

This is the fourth course of this series. Please note that it is fine to take them out of order, if necessary. The first course is Total Knowledge 2.0, followed by Emergence of the Veda. The third course is Revelations of the Flow of Atma. And the next course is Dynamic Silence in the Total Knowledge Charts.

An online 12-lesson self-study course. Each lesson is 1.5 hours.

Prerequisite: Revelations of the Flow of Atma. 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

This course takes us on a unique journey through Maharishi’s unfoldment of Total Knowledge in 2007 – building on the amazing exposition of Maharishi’s Total Knowledge during 2006 that we have witnessed in the previous three courses.

Maharishi summarizes this new journey in the following words, in the talks that we will listen to during this new course:

“That is the field of A-ham — I am A. I am totality. I am total Veda. I am the constitution of the universe. And, I am the expression of the constitution in terms of the universe: Aham vishwam. Aham vishwam — I am the universe. … That is Aham. That I am — Aham. And that is Brahm, totality — that is universality. I am the universe. I am the Veda — total knowledge. This is total knowledge. …

“The silent aspect of the nature of Brahm and the dynamism nature of Brahm — the union is so perfect in its complete naturalness that it is never anything other than the combination of the two, the co-ordination of the two. … And Raja Peter has expressed that thing — is going to express more and more of the delicate union between the two values — silence and dynamism. …

“Through proper words — through the speech of the Self, the speech of Ātmā — it is the unified field that speaks. It is the unified field that through sound diversifies itself into infinite diversity. … All the diverse values have their whole existence in eternal unity — and that is wholeness. That is Brahm.”
