About this Total Knowledge course

In his final four years, Maharishi completed his comprehensive exposition of Total Knowledge, and the curriculum to unfold it in the awareness of every student. In Part Four, Dr Warburton shows how all the different elements of Maharishi’s Total Knowledge – understood through Parts One, Two, and Three of this course – fit together in one unified wholeness.

This four-part series on Maharishi’s Total Knowledge provides the fundamental building blocks on the basis of which the course participant naturally grows in the ability to know and experience the whole of life in the context of Total Knowledge. As inner experience grows, this knowledge reveals itself in ever-expanding waves.

In Part Four, Dr Warburton presents Maharishi’s analysis of the fixed and flowing values of Total Knowledge, in terms of number and language, and relates these to the development of higher states of consciousness. Finally, Maharishi reveals the ultimate reality of “Administration in Silence” – life in Unity Consciousness, Brahmi Chetana, where all the Devata support every action.

Once again led for us by Dr Warburton in his inimitable style, the course includes beautiful tapes of Maharishi, charts developed with Maharishi, exercises and time for discussion, as well as fascinating stories of a lifetime of experience with Maharishi.

Attending this course is the natural next step for those who have taken Parts 1, 2, and 3, but it is also open to all TM Meditators, Sidhas, and Teachers who are familiar with Maharishi’s Vedic Science (see prerequisites below).

What course participants say about the course

‘I would highly recommend this course to anyone who wants to gain a better understanding of Maharishi’s knowledge. Raja Peter was outstanding as the course leader. His depth of understanding of Maharishi’s knowledge is thorough and he communicates that knowledge very clearly. He is very smooth, friendly, and pleasant to listen to. He welcomes questions and is very accommodating to the students.’ – KR

‘‘I loved all four parts of this course, each class building on the previous. It’s different from anything I’ve ever studied—abstract concepts that seem impossible, but at the same time make sense. The real beauty of these classes is that the concepts become integrated into your meditations and into everyday life. The feeling of being a part of something so big and so beautiful is extremely joyful and satisfying. Highly recommended!’ – Cary Cox

‘This knowledge is very enlivening to the consciousness. One starts thinking about life in a completely different way. This is the third course I have done. This knowledge has completely transformed my inner experience.’ – BG

‘This is the top best thing that I did this year.’ – Linda Spitzfaden

‘This course is an in-depth discovery of the knowledge that the source of all creation and knowledge comes from within oneself.’ – Jennifer Lin

‘This course has changed my life. Or, rather, these courses are changing my life… and the experience is quite beautiful. The course is quite wonderful.’  – Gilda Marie Anroman

‘This is a wonderful course. I have gained so much from this course, both intellectually and experientially. It has really impacted my day-to-day life at a very deep level. The course is filled with exciting knowledge, discussions, Dr Warburton’s fabulous stories of his time with Maharishi, tapes of Maharishi’s last lectures, and stimulating Q&As.’ – CL

‘‘Very expansive and evolutionary. I had very good experiences taking these courses and would recommend them to everyone. The knowledge is priceless and it instigates experiences of higher states of consciousness.’ – SP

‘ ‘Really great course in which you get to listen to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi describe the existence of ten Brahms and their connections with total knowledge. Be sure to take the first three Total Knowledge courses as a foundation for this one.’ – Mary Araas-Wright

About Dr Warburton

Maharishi's Total Knowledge

Dr Peter Warburton is Chief Executive of Maharishi Foundation in the UK as well as the leader of numerous sister organisations in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East. Dr Warburton worked closely with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme, for 36 years. From 2004-2008, Maharishi personally trained Dr Warburton to offer courses on Total Knowledge.

Dr Warburton has also been the leading organiser for the International Young Meditators’ Course (IYMC) for the past ten years, and has taken an active role in sharing Maharishi’s profound knowledge with the younger generations. Dr Warburton happily invites all those who have attended the IYMC over the past ten years, and feels the participants will greatly enjoy this celebration of knowledge.

Dr Warburton says: ‘This unique Total Knowledge course, designed by Maharishi, is actually a systematic and enjoyable curriculum to unfold in the participants’ awareness of the profound knowledge that is being presented.’
