About the course

In 1991, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi gave a series of lectures in Maastricht, the Netherlands,  introducing many branches of Vedic Science for the first time. Experience the Veda is inspired by this lecture series. Over the 12 lessons, faculty Dr Bevan Morris, Dr Luis Alvarez, and Dr Ashley Deans will guide you through six lectures Maharishi gave in Maastricht, with activities to integrate the knowledge. 

If you want to better understand Maharishi’s Vedic Science and its applications, the Experience the Veda course is for you. Not only will you learn about the different aspects of Maharishi’s Vedic knowledge, but you will come to know how to experience the Veda in your life. Complementing your practice of Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi programme, enhance your experience of the Veda by understanding and applying the practical applications of Maharishi Vedic Science, such as Maharishi AyurVeda, Maharishi Jyotish, and Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.

The faculty will present to you the structure of the Veda as the Constitution of the Universe, and how the Veda is structured in consciousness.


Know your experiences of the Veda and deepen them by joining this course.
