Amrita Shrivastava grew up in India and studied medical science, receiving bachelor's and master's degrees. Amrita comes from a line of teachers of the Transcendental Meditation technique. She attended the Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course, then taught the TM technique in India. In 2014 she enrolled in a PhD program at Maharishi University of Management in the USA.*

At MUM Amrita became so fascinated with the preventative and diagnostic abilities of Maharishi AyurVeda that she decided to focus her doctoral research on finding the physiological correlates of the three Ayurvedic principles, the Doshas, in the brain. With the use of EEG (electroencephalography), she plans to map the signature brain patterns of each Dosha. She hopes that her study will add to the increasing body of research validating the principles of Maharishi AyurVeda.

Amrita's long-term goal is to reinstate the prestige of Ayurveda in India and integrate it into modern health care along with the Transcendental Meditation technique.
