United States Senator Tom Harkin's address to the university's 2013 commencement ceremonies delighted his listeners with humor, wisdom, and a deep appreciation for Maharishi University of Management.

''I do want you to know of my highest respect and admiration that I have for this university, for what you have done, what you have become here in Iowa, the nation, and the world, and especially for what I consider to be the best holistic approach to education and wellness in life at any university anywhere on the globe,'' he said.

The heart of his talk was 'Senator Harkin's 10 rules for living'.

As rule number one, he urged graduates to be part of something larger than themselves, emphasizing the importance of contributing to their community. He said an important part of that was knowing who they are, with the Transcendental Meditation technique helping to achieve this.

''Most of the people I have known who have been both successful and happy are those who know themselves—who they are,'' he said. ''This university has taught you to have the mental strength to transcend the vicissitudes of life, to know yourself. It prepared you well for that outward journey.''
