Course Description

Maharishi

Maharishi speaking in Maastricht

In 1991 in Maastricht, Netherlands, Maharishi hosted a historic conference on Vedic Science, attended by over 7,000 people, where Maharishi brought out the real depth and significance of his Vedic Science. In this 14-lesson course, we review these talks in the context of Maharishi’s Total Knowledge, which will lead us to profound understanding and insights into Vedic Science, along with its implications and value for us personally and collectively.

Each lesson consists of about 50 minutes of video and 40 minutes of review and discussion led by Dr. Warburton.

Please note that this series of videos is best appreciated by viewing all of them in sequence.

Five stars  “I could not say whether it is the content of Maharishi’s Total Knowledge course(s) presented by Raja Peter or the contentless silence of the group meditations at their conclusion that are most precious. Certainly it is the samhita of the two from which the magic of knowledge flows. I cherish the opportunity to join in the collective consciousness of this very blessed group of people – my much beloved family.” —Leon

Five stars  “If you’ve ever wondered how everything comes into being, how creation unfolds, where God is, where you are in the process, this is the course for you! Why so many seemingly diverse areas of the Veda? Where did it come from? How can I be sure it’s true? Tune in to this course for the answers! I love the group energy and the style of teaching. Thoroughly enjoyable!” —TL

Five stars  “In this course Maharishi expounds with great clarity and detail the process of the manifestation of the material world from the absolute ocean of Pure Consciousness which is the Veda and which resides within each of us. Raja Peter further enhances Maharishi’s knowledge by playing Vedic recitation in each session, with clarifying explanations of the knowledge, delightful stories, and by answering course participants’ questions. As the knowledge unfolds, so does the expansion of one’s own consciousness, with perceptible changes lesson by lesson. This course is a remarkable and wondrous experience! Don’t miss it!” —Penelope

The result is that we are guided through the investigation of Maharishi’s Total Knowledge from so many different angles in different courses, but all with the same steady hand and twinkling bliss.” —VM

Five stars  “I finally understand that Time is Life. Our role is to just fully experience our Being, by realizing that we are It. This is It. Rishi, Devata, Chandas in my own person, and every where else. It just varies by degrees of one’s consciousness.” —LM
