Under the guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and the leadership of Dr Girish Varma,* a large network of colleges and universities, with all students practising Transcendental Meditation, has been established in India.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Vedic University (MMYVU), in Madhya Pradesh in central India, which offers graduate and post graduate degrees, currently has 28,000 students in two tracks, one for Maharishi's Vedic Science and the other for Management and Computer Science.

The Vedic Science track includes 6,000 Vedic Pandits at the various campuses in India, who are working towards their degrees in Vedic Science through a program of systematic study and evaluation designed by Maharishi. The balance of the students attend one of the four regular campuses or one of the 220 Associate Institutions which have aligned themselves with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Vedic University.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi University of Management and Technology, Chhattisgarh in central-east India: This newest of the colleges and universities was given accreditation in record time. Its main campus is being built at Bilaspur, with distance education study centers already established at Raipur, Raigarh and Durg, and several others underway.

The university has 4,800 students in 22 study centers, offering courses in Management and Computer Science. All students also study Vedic Science as part of the curriculum and participate in regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation programme.

Maharishi College, Madhya Pradesh, has six branches with 2,000 students, and primarily offers degrees in education and physical education.

Maharishi Institute of Management has six branches in major centers around India: Bangalore, Chennai, Noida, Bhopal, Hyderabad and Indore. The Institute offers undergraduate and graduate programs with a business orientation. There are currently 950 students.

'These schools and colleges give a glimpse of the bright future for India and the world,' writes Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja (Administrator) of Invincible India for the Global Country of World Peace, in a special report about recent developments in the nation.

'Year after year, these schools and colleges create waves of new practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme.

'The coherence and economic growth in India in recent years is directly correlated with the stability of our Vedic Pandit programme,' Raja Harris said.

* Dr Girish Varma is Director-General of the Maharishi Global Capital of World Peace at the Brahmasthan [auspicious central area] of India and National Director of the Global Country of World Peace in India. He is also Chairman of the 160 Maharishi Vidya Mandir Schools Group, and President of Maharishi Institutes of Management and Information Technology, in India.
