Maharishi on Vedānt
Lively Absolute –
Living Wholeness, I-ness, Being
Maharishi’s master, Guru Dev, was hailed as “Vedānt Incarnate, the Embodiment of Truth” by Dr Sarvapalli Radhakrishnan, the President of India.
Vedānt means the end or culmination, anta, of all knowledge, Veda. Maharishi revealed that Vedānt becomes a practical living reality in the state of Unity Consciousness, Brahmi Chetana. This state is revealed by the famous Upanishadic sayings – mahavakyas – such as Aham Brahmasmi, I Am the Totality.
The course will contain important selections from the Vedic texts and excerpts from Maharishi’s own talks and writings, all explained with great clarity by Dr Morris in his inimitable and endearing style. Of particular interest will be readings from Maharishi’s 1955 “Beacon Light of the Himalayas” that contains some of the richest and most profound expressions of Vedānt to be found anywhere.
Dr Morris worked with Maharishi for more than 39 years since becoming a teacher of Transcendental Meditation in India in 1969.
He received an MA and BA in Psychology and Philosophy from Cambridge University, and an MSCI and DSCI from Maharishi European Research University.
Dr Morris is currently International President for Maharishi International Universities and President Emeritus of Maharishi International University. He is also Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Brahmananda Saraswati Foundation (USA).
