  • Summer - Winter 2016

    MERUEnlightenment and Well-Being

  • The central theme at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) is research into the field of consciousness. The University was founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who has completely restored the thousands of years-old, scattered Vedic Literature into a complete science; bringing to light its full potential. Through this revival of Vedic Science with its various disciplines such as AyurVeda (science of health), Sthapatya Veda (Vedic architecture), Gandharva Veda (Indian classical music), Jyotish (Vedic astrology) etc., Maharishi has made a unique and practical contribution to the holistic improvement of all areas of society.

    Maharishi European Research University

    Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is widely regarded as the foremost expert in the study and development of consciousness. He rediscovered and made available the technique of Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programs. The Transcendental Meditation technique is a simple, natural, effortless process practiced 1520 minutes twice daily while sitting comfortably with eyes closed. Through the practice of these techniques, millions of people have experienced improvements in health, vitality, creativity and happiness. Maharishi also placed great attention on the introduction and use of Vedic technologies for peace and prosperity in the world.

    MERU Vlodrop is near the villages of Vlodrop-Station and Vlodrop in Limburg, the Netherlands, adjacent to the Dutch-German border and surrounded by the Meinweg National Park.

  • Advanced Techniques of Transcendental Meditation enhance and enrich the benefits of ones daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique. Through the regular practice of Transcendental Meditation, the mind becomes familiar with the experience of pure consciousness the simplest, least excited state of consciousness.

    Through the Advanced Techniques, we enhance our ability to experience finer levels of thought to develop finer perception while becoming more and more familiar with the experience of our own silent Self. As our conscious mind thereby becomes more infused with this pure field of consciousness and our perception becomes more enriched, our thoughts and actions spontaneously become more powerful and effective, resulting in greater fulfilment of desires in daily life. Meditators can apply for the first Advanced Technique after two to four months of regular practice of Transcendental Meditation and then continue with the sequence of Advanced Techniques after every additional two to four months.

    Advanced Techniques are offered on most of the courses at MERU and during all the Assemblies, but you can also contact us and make arrangements at a time that suits you. We want to make it easy for everyone to receive these techniques.

    The purpose of Advanced Techniques is to take the experience to another, higher level. Advanced Techniques are like fertilizers;

    fertilizers bring better fruit to every tree. To enjoy greater achievement and fulfilment in life, take advantage of this beautiful programme of

    Advanced Techniques to enrich the development of higher states of consciousness. Maharishi

  • If we have practised the TM-Sidhi Programme, then the conscious mind will always start thinking from that deepest level

    of the self-referral state of intelligence. And any thought that emerges consciously from there has the support of all the Laws of Nature.

    And any thought with the full support of Natural Law will always be fulfilled quickly without loss of time,

    without struggle and strife. Maharishi

    Dates: (Weekends)

    The practice of Transcendental Meditation allows the mind to settle down effortlessly and naturally to experience pure consciousness the Self the silent inner reservoir of creativity and intelligence that underlies all our mental activity. The Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme cultures the ability to think and act from that profound inner silence so that all our thoughts and actions are maximally powerful and effective.

    The practice of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme optimizes specific channels of mind-body coordination from this deepest level of consciousness. The most powerful aspect of this programme is Yogic Flying. During the practice of Yogic Flying, brainwave synchrony is maximized as the body spontaneously springs forward in short hops. Internally, the experience is accompanied by feelings of exhilaration, expanded awareness, lightness, and bubbling bliss.

    The Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme is now being offered to all European Meditators who have been practising four Advanced Techniques for at least two to four months.

  • Inspiring short documentaries of schools worldwide offering the Transcendental Meditation/TM-Sidhi programmes as part of the curriculum

    Deep experiences of extended group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programmes

    Successes of the 2015 participants:

    Nepal: As a result of this course taken in previous years, the Transcendental Meditation programme has expanded to several thousand students in a military, a government, and a private school, leading to the course taught in Nepal itself to 50 principals and teachers.

    From Raja Kingsley and Dr Leslie Brooks:

    The CBE course taught in Nepal in November 2015 transformed the thinking of every school teacher and administrator who took the course. The knowledge and exercises were so practical and enriching that the participants quickly made the connection between their current level of personal experience and the advantages and benefits for students.

    This gave them confidence to organize to implement fully the TM and TM Sidhi programme in their schools. After the course theparticipants had a morepositiveoutlook on their own lives and on the future of Nepal.

    Japan: A leader of Maharishi Institute of Total Education reported,We started to teach in one of the biggestcram schools in west Japan, with 15,000 students. We taught TM to the president, board of directors, and now the teachers, in preparation for teaching the students.

    In the wonderful course I understood the real importance of a CBE project for our coun try, that this is the solution and key for the coherence of our nation to be raised.

    Mali: The National Director of the Transcendental Meditation organization has implemented the Transcendental Meditation programme in a school of more than 400 students:

    As a result of the step-by-step application learned in the CBE course, permission forms flow from the parents, personal instructions and checking are going on every day by two full-time Governors, teachers are leading group meditation in their classrooms very seriously, and the school director is even more fired up than myself, informing the Prime Minister [Dr Bevan Morris] that the students will be starting the TM-Sidhi programme, with the required number to bring invincibility to Mali.

    Argentina: The General Director and Administrator of an international school in Argentina introduced the Transcendental Meditation programme in their school:

    The CBE course provided us the knowledge, as well as the strength and support that we needed. The course was also fundamental for providing the tools needed for the successful presentation of the project to teachers, parents and students.

    Kenya: The National Director of the Transcendental Meditation programme reported that they have started implementing the TM programme in three more schools in Kenya and one school across the border in Tanzania.

    In addition, many presentations were given: On national television by the National Director of the Transcendental Meditation organization in Armenia; and to educators in Algeria, Ukraine, Israel, and other countries.

  • All the phases of time are incapable of shaking the roots of this knowledge, because it is embedded in infinity. A good Teacher means he will teach the way he has been taught.

    All the organisational rules are there to keep us straight in the teaching. Our efforts are going to last for thousands of years, for tens of thousands of years.

    The Governor Refresher Course is particularly relevant for Teachers who have not been teaching regularly, but it was Maharishis wish that all active Governors who took the Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course prior to 2005 should take Block One, which includes many recent lectures by Maharishi on the principles of teaching and the role of the Certified Governor. Many of the lectures were recorded during the first Governor Refresher Course held simultane-ously in several locations around the world in April-May 2005.

    We warmly encourage all Governors who have not yet had the opportunity to attend the Governor Refresher Course to apply now to become Certified Governors. Governors who have attended the course have commented on how invaluable and enriching it is.

  • Discovering the Eternal Reality of the Rmyan in the Structure and Function of Human Physiology

    Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam is talking in terms of the mechanics of transformation of Natural Law into physiology. He has realised that the total Constitution of Natural Law, which governs the universe with perfect order, is lively in every grain of physiology. And the language of Rmyan is that language in which Total Natural Law is actually seen administering the whole universe.

    Maharishi

    In this beautiful video course, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam (Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PhD) will describe his discovery, made under the guidance of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, that the eternal epic of Vedic Literature, the Rmyan, is a description of total Natural Law expressing itself in human physiology. Its characters and their actions and interactions unfold the story of Natural Law as it expresses itself into all aspects of creation.

    During the course, participants will:

    Listen to Maharishi explain the deepest essence of the Rmyan

    Understand how to recognize the relationship between the unmanifest, abstract reality of Natural Law and its concrete expressions at every level of manifestation

    Comprehend how the characters, relationships and events from the story can be consistently and systematically located in the structures and functions of human physiology, revealing the cosmic nature of the unfoldment of human life

    Gain a greater understanding of Maharishi Vedic Science and Technology of Consciousness

    Each lesson presents a fascinating topic that relates to the overall theme of the course, The Rmyan Reveals the Cosmic Nature of the Unfoldment of Human Life. For example, Lesson 8 explores how the hierarchy of characters unfolds in four different levels of the physiology, and how the Rishis or sages can be located according to the functions of certain structures in the brainstem.

    Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam (Dr. Tony Nader, MD, PhD) is one of the great, innovative geniuses of our time His remarkable scientific elucidation of the ancient cherished epic, the Ramayan, reveals how this timeless saga is

    truly about ourselvesa story that is continuously unfolding within our very brain and body. This makes this time-honored epic immediately relevant to the life and very soul of the reader. John Hagelin, PhD

    This course elaborates on the knowledge presented in Maharajas book, Rmyan in Human Physiology, and course participants will deepen their understanding by reading relevant sections of the book. Each lesson features a video lecture by Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, with an introduction by Dr. Peter Swan. The course leaders will guide the course participants in discussion and exercises that connect the main ideas of the lesson with the development of their own creative potential.

  • Maharishis Commentary on Rik Veda, Apaurusheya Bhshya, brings to light the mechanics of evolution of Natural Law. It explains how the WHOLENESS of Natural Lawthe unmanifest, eternal ocean of self-referral consciousnessgives rise to the sequential, orderly unfoldment of specific Laws of Nature in the Veda and the entire manifest universe.

    Diving deep into Maharishis knowledge of Vedic Science

    In sequence as we go on inspecting the structure of the whole Veda, we come out to see a very intelligent and perfect sequential progression of the tree of knowledge from the seed of knowledge. As from any seed, which has compactly contained within its nature the whole diversity of the tree, the sprouting comes out, and this grows into a tree, and the whole thing comes out into a tree, and all the fruits come out from there. So, in order to enjoy the fruit of all knowledge, we have to develop the state of all knowledge in our consciousness, and the way to do it is the Sidhi programme. Maharishi, 20. February 1982, Advanced Vision of Maharishis Apaurusheya Bhshya, Boppard, Germany

    Theme One:

    Maharishis Apaurusheya Bhshya, Personal Experience of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and Principles of Modern Science: These three angles of investigation together provide a clear vision of the mechanics of Natural Law in the unmanifest GAP between each expression of the Veda, which structures the Veda and the whole creation.

    This is Theme One of a three-part advanced course. Theme One is being offered 18 22 November 2016, on a World Peace Assembly (WPA) at MERU.

    Maharishis timeless video lectures and deeper personal experience:

    Knowledge and experience go hand in hand. Through Maharishis timeless video lectures on Apaurusheya Bhshya and the restful routine of the World Peace Assembly, with extended group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme, discover in the self-referral intelligence of your own Being the liveliness of both Unity and diversity, where the total potential of Veda is available as the source of order and symmetry in the whole universe.

    This course will be conducted at MERU by members of the Purusha and Mother Divine Programmes, who are steeped in Maharishi's knowledge and well qualified to guide you as you explore Maharishi Vedic Science.

    The investmentEach of the two buildings will have about 20 apartments varying from three bedrooms plus kitchen/dining and living room, to two-rooms or single-room apartments, ranging from approximately 135 square meters to 28 square meters living space plus balcony.

    If you would like to discuss your financing needs or plans including the size of the apartment we would be happy to hear from you.

    Also, there may be the possibility to have some of the apartments on a time-share basis, which would allow each occupant to live in the apartment for a period of 3 to 6 months every year.

    When an apartment is not occupied, arrangements can be made with mutual consent to allow the apartment to be rented for MERU courses, and to share the profits with MERU.

    The apartments will be sold on a right-to-live basis. If needed, it will be possible to disinvest at any time by finding another client, in agreement with MERU, and any profit will be shared equally with MERU.

    Interested Governors and Sidhas, please contact your National Director or representative at the contact email provided below.
