Description

Introduction

INTRODUCTION Since 1955, a significant global research and publishing program has accompanied the teaching of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program, the Science of Creative Intelligence (SCI), Maharishi Vedic Science and Technology, Maharishi University of Management in USA, Maharishi Vedic University (MVU) in the Netherlands, and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Vedic Vishwavidyalaya in India. This advanced research program into Vedic knowledge, along with its accompanying international publishing effort, consists of thousands of published documents, many authored by Maharishi, including books, booklets, literature reviews, white papers, conference proceedings, display charts, and posters, many translated into languages as diverse as Spanish, Russian, Turkish, Hindi, Malayalam, and Mandarin. Topics investigated by Maharishi since the mid-1950s include detailed investigations into the Veda and Vedic Literature, consciousness, Natural Law and the laws of nature, physics (particularly unified field theories), chemistry, physiology, mathematics, law, justice, rehabilitation, education, health and ageing, government, business and industry, management and leadership, economics, and agriculture, among many other academic and applied disciplines. Moreover, a corpus of more than 600 experimental and quasiexperimental studies, time-series analyses, meta-analyses, mixed methods, and social impact assessments, along with theoretical and review studies associated with the application of Maharishi Vedic Science and its applied technologies, accompany Maharishi’s published literature. This record of empirical research combines with experiential, qualitative, descriptive, and case study accounts of Maharishi’s teaching and its application to all areas of life, such as health, education, business, government, and social well-being—all of it documented with evidentiary support and explained using an extensive range of charts, graphs, conceptual maps, diagrams, and other visual aids—to provide a significantly vast body of advanced Vedic knowledge dedicated to living the fullness of individual and social life. Often, the topic is systematically analysed for consistency and presented across three main organizational constructs: 1) ancient Vedic literature (particularly Ṛik Ved, and the 39 aspects of Vedic Literature, including Bhagavad-Gītā and Yoga Sūtras); 2) direct personal experience; 1

and 3) contemporary scientific theory (most often physics and mathematics) and empirical research (including from the perspectives of physiology, psychology, sociology and ecology). Together these levels of verification represent the so-called ‘three Eurekas’ of Maharishi’s knowledge. Specialist investigations into topics such as the unified quantum field theories of physics (including the ‘vacuum state’ of quantum mechanics), neuroscience, computer science, genetic engineering, organic agriculture, psychology, ecology, set theory and information theory in mathematics, and gerontology complete the enterprise. Maharishi’s program has attracted the interest of a great many academics, business pioneers, government representatives, and other world leaders, including Nobel Laureates Dr Brian Josephson, Dr Melvin Calvin, and Dr Ilya Prigogine, and heads of government, such as President Joachuim Chissano, President of the Republic of Mozambique. Research designed to test Maharishi’s Vedic propositions has been conducted at some of the world’s most prestigious research facilities— such as the Harvard Medical School, Princeton University, and University of Edinburgh—in the United Kingdom, USA, France, Norway, Japan, Australia, Lebanon, Cambodia, Canada, India, and elsewhere. These thirdparty contributions evidence and expand Maharishi’s teaching, often through the identification of principles, frameworks, models, and testable hypotheses. Maharishi’s proposition that the core element of his teaching— described severally as the existence of a state of pure consciousness, pure intelligence, Being, Ātmā, the unified field of Natural Law, and creative intelligence—can be logically explained, directly experienced, scientifically verified, artistically actualised, and fully unfolded and applied in all fields of knowledge and activity for the betterment of the individual, society and environment, is reflected in the research and publishing effort documented in this Guide. Maharishi’s insight into the Veda and Vedic Literature, including his identification of seven states of consciousness, his analysis of the Bhagavad-Gītā and identification of the importance of its two key verses (‘Be without the three Guṇ as, O Arjuna!’ [Nistrai-guṇ yo bhava-Arjuna, निस्त्रैगुण्यो भवार्ुुि, Bhagavad-Gītā, 2.45] and ‘Established in the Self, perform action’ [Yogasthaḥ kuru karmānị, योगस्थः कुरु कर्ाु नि, Bhagavad-Gītā, 2.48]), his explanation that ‘knowledge is structured in consciousness’ as described by the Richo Akshare verse of Ṛik Ved or what Maharishi calls the master key to all knowledge, and his discovery of the Apaurusheya Bhāsya, 2

Introduction

an ‘uncreated’ or ‘self-expressed’ commentary, of Ṛik Ved (what Maharishi calls the ‘Constitution of the Universe’), along with the extensive body of subjective and empirical evidence developed to support them, can therefore rightly be called a landmark in Vedic Science and human discovery. The present Guide builds upon and extends the work presented in two related journal publications by this author: 1) “An annotated historical survey of 84 publications by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi from 1957-2015”, International Journal of Current Research, 2016, 9(2), 47009-47054; and 2) “Researching Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: An archive of published literature from 1957-2015”, Journal of Maharishi Vedic Research Institute, 2017, 3, 5351. The Guide identifies and evaluates the published literature by Maharishi to detail the topics, themes and disciplines he examined over a 50-year period and thereby to better comprehend the scope of his written output. The purpose of this Guide is to provide the reader-researcher with information and background material on the published works of Maharishi and to furnish an appropriate context in which this significant body of work can systematically be accessed and comprehended for future scholarly benefit and for the propagation of Maharishi Vedic Science and Technology. The goal of the Guide is to create a record of Maharishi’s published literature since 1955 and to provide greater functionality for its access. The Guide is not intended to be exhaustive but comprehensive; there may be many more publications by Maharishi to which this author does not have access. This is particularly true if translated versions of available publications and other original non-English publications are catalogued (e.g., Maharishi’s 1963, 380-page book La Science de l’Etre et l’Art de Vivre, and his 1974, 60-page book Begründer der Wissenschaft der Schöpferischen Intelligenz Grundlagen des Fortschritts bestätigt durch wissenschaftliche Untersuchungen über Transzendentale Meditation). After examining each document, the following data have been included with its entry in the Guide: 1) a publication number and APA citation for the document, including ISBN and/or publisher’s publication number where applicable, along with a total page count; 2) a quotation, usually by Maharishi, which typically appears in the foreword, preface or other early sections of the document, used here to summarise the main theme of the document; 3) a description of the main contents of the 3

document; 4) the key words and phrases used in the document, presented alphabetically; and 5) the main types of content contained in the document. The content types identified in section 5) of each document entry were derived from the following taxonomy: Bibliographic Citations, including lists of books or journals, literature reviews, or indexes; Charts and Graphs, including figures, tables and/or diagrams; Historic Photographs of people or places; Press Reports, including letters, press statements, advertisements and/or proclamations; Scientific Research with charts or citations on Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and/or TM-Sidhi program or on related research topics; Third-party Contributions, such as quotes, lectures or questions, which were advanced by academics, educators, government agencies or officials, press representatives, or members of the general public; and Vedic Expressions in either in translation, transliteration, and/or Hindi or Sanskrit. The spelling of key words and phrases used in the Guide are true to the original document (for example, the term ‘Natural Law’ has been spelled throughout the literature as natural law, Natural law, and Natural Law, and ‘Ṛik Ved’ has been spelled severally as Rig Veda, Rig Ved, Ṛg Ved, Rik Ved, Ṛk Ved, and Ṛik Ved), and hence some words may be spelled inconsistently from document to document, and some discrepancies in translation and the use of diacritical marks may also be observed. Moreover, Vedic terms and expressions may or may not use diacritical marks, depending on the publication, but when used have been cited in the Guide as they were presented in the original document, with the term or expression provided in Sanskrit if furnished in the original. The Guide also contains a bibliography of published literature by Maharishi and others (beginning on p. 283), as well as an Index of key words, terms and phrases used throughout the literature shown in the Guide (beginning on p. 341). An attempt has been made to standardise the spelling of words and phrases, particularly technical Vedic terms using diacritical marks, in the Index.

1977 Publication #56: Maharishi International College for the Age of Enlightenment. (1977). The fulfilment of law, justice and rehabilitation through the development of consciousness. West Germany: Maharishi European Research University Press (publication no. G 1403), 16pp. Quote: “We are in a position to invite the great minds of our generation from the field of law to come and examine our findings—that every man can spontaneously act according to the laws of nature and therefore live in an evolutionary direction through the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programmes”—Maharishi (Preface). Description: This is one of the first documents in the Guide to explicitly refer to the TM-Sidhi program (although it was alluded to in Publication #53 in reference to the “Governor Training Course”) and to Natural Law, doing so in the context of the philosophy of the Institute of Natural Law and Order. The booklet contains a double-page spread on optimising brain functioning though the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program, showing the “first stage of flying” with maximum brainwave coherence and heart rate data (pp. 4-5), and presents data on findings related to Transcendental Meditation and law, justice and rehabilitation outcomes, and the Maharishi Effect. Maharishi’s statement on law, justice and rehabilitation (pp. 12-13) includes topics such as the purpose of law fulfilled, law and justice in the Age of Enlightenment, the criteria of successful rehabilitation, a course for rehabilitation, and the MERU Rehabilitation Index is instructional. 74

All insights into the source, course and goal of all life come to us from the Veda. The Veda reveals that the individual is a miniature universe. All the forces of nature responsible for all that there is in the universe are present in the individual, some active and some latent. The insight into life brought to us by the Veda explains that it is possible to unfold the full potential of individual life and enliven all the forces of nature in the individual’s consciousness and thereby make the individual free from all limitations”—Maharishi (Preface).

Publication #58: Orme-Johnson, D.W., & Farrow J.T. (eds.) (1977). Scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation program: Collected papers, volume 1. Rheinweiler, West Germany: Maharishi European Research University Press (ISBN 3-88333-001-9), 727pp. Quote: “This great and powerful technology for elevating society owes its efficiency to the profound laws of nature upon which it is based. Physicists and physiologists, psychologists and sociologists may explain these effects by developing their own theories, and it is good that they should do so; but our own understanding is very simple: unbounded pure consciousness, the field of intelligence in its pure, unmanifest form, is the ultimate source of creativity, of energy, of harmony, and of growth for man, just as in the flower pure colorless sap is the ultimate constituent of the pink petal, the green leaf, and the impulse of the plant to grow and evolve”—Maharishi (pp. 2-3). Description: The book begins with Foreword by Maharishi, which includes the words “the Age of Science, which has sometimes seemed to take man far away from nature, has found as its ultimate achievement Transcendental Meditation, a method for establishing man’s mind, heart and behaviour deep in the source of nature’s impulses within himself. Rapidly and inevitably Transcendental Meditation is raising the scientific age to be the Age of Enlightenment. The evidence that this is so is contained in the more than one hundred research studies in this volume, conducted by scientists in all areas of physiology, psychology, and sociology, which prove conclusively that the TM program elevates every aspect of mental potential, health, social behaviour, and community harmony. More and deeper research work on the TM technique should and will proceed from the inspiration of these first studies, but the scientific validation of this most ancient value of human knowledge is established. The whole world is the beneficiary” (pp. 1-2). The research presented in this Volume 1 is then organized into five categories: Part I: Physiology (pp. 35-358, including A. metabolic changes; B. electrophysiological and electroencephalographic changes; C. physiological efficiency and stability; D. health; and E. motor and perceptual ability, and athletic performance); Part II: Psychology (pp. 361-488, including A. intelligence, learning and academic performance; and B. development of personality); Part III: Sociology (pp. 491-648, 76

including A. rehabilitation; and B. productivity and quality of life); Part IV: Theoretical Papers (pp. 651-697); and Part V: The TM-Sidhi Program (pp. 701-725). Of note is the study titled “Improved quality of city life through the Transcendental Meditation program: Decreased crime rate”, by Candace Borland and Garland Landrith beginning on page 639. This study represents the first study of its type to measure the Maharishi Effect, showing that when 1% of the population of 11 sample cities in the U.S. (e.g., Chapel Hill, NC, Ithaca, NY, Davis, CA, and Lawrence, KS) begin practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique, crime rate in the city decreases, on average by 8.2% compared to control cities, all of which increased by an average of 8.3%. The book concludes with an Index of authors whose research appears in this Volume 1 (pp. 726-727). Key words and phrases: 1% effect; Academic performance; biochemical change; cardiovascular change; development of personality; education; electroencephalographic change; electrophysiological change; health; intelligence; learning; metabolic change; physiology; productivity; psychology; quality of life; rehabilitation; review paper; sociology; theoretical paper; TM-Sidhi; Transcendental Meditation. Contains: Bibliographic Citations: Charts and Graphs; Scientific Research; Third-party Contributions; Vedic Expressions. Publication #59: Maharishi European Research University. (1977). Enlightenment in world psychiatry: The Transcendental Meditation technique new light on consciousness. West Germany: Maharishi European Research University Press (publication no. G 1353), 49pp. Quote: “It is now time for World Psychiatry to become responsible for the psychiatry of the world. This means training the level of world consciousness and measuring the parameters of the growth of world consciousness at a physiological, psychological, and sociological level. The study of the evolution of the world as a whole, and of the rise of the collective consciousness of mankind, is a unique field. In this study there is no basis for comparison. Man now controls the trends of time, and holds the future of the world in his hands. He cannot look to any outer course of control for the direction of his 77

destiny—he must look within himself, to the field of his own consciousness from which he creates his own path of evolution” (p. 18). Description: This document explores the relationship between higher states of consciousness and the practice of psychiatry. It introduces for the first time in this Guide the concept of the so-called “vacuum state” as described by quantum field theory of modern physics and shows how this state parallels the state of pure consciousness described in the Vedic literature; the book presents physiological, psychological and sociological correlates for this state of consciousness (pp. 4-5). Another two-page spread, similar to the one described in Publication #56, presents the TMSidhi program (pp. 10-11), and 61 references to related third-party research, mostly research related to outcomes associated with the practice of Transcendental Meditation, are included (pp. 46-47). Key words and phrases: Brainwave coherence; business; collective consciousness; consciousness; cultural integrity; education; EEG coherence; enlightenment; government; health; industry; physiology; psychiatry; psychophysiology; rehabilitation; scientific research; sociology; TM-Sidhi; Transcendental Meditation; vacuum state; world peace. Contains: Bibliographic Citations; Charts and Graphs; Historical Photographs; Scientific Research; Third-party Contributions. Publication #60: Maharishi European Research University. (1977). Achievements: First quarter 1977. West Germany: Maharishi European Research University Press (publication no. G 1180), 65pp. Quote: “In response to the call of time, a global organization has been established, the nonpolitical, non-religious World Government of the Age of Enlightenment, which has the knowledge and expertise to create an ideal society. The sovereignty of the World Government of the Age of Enlightenment is the domain of consciousness, and its activities to raise and maintain higher levels of consciousness are being carried out from the 1,500 Capitals of the Age of Enlightenment throughout the world”—Maharishi (p. 1). 78
