The MUM faculty were invited to give plenary addresses, along with the Dalai Lama and about 30 other eminent educators and political leaders. Over 2,000 teachers took part in the Congress, mostly from India but also including hundreds of visitors from a dozen countries.

Dr. Maheshwari spoke about the ultimate goal of education: to help students prepare to live a blissful life. Dr. Herriott gave a presentation about the fourth state of consciousness** and its role in education, showing references to this state of consciousness in the Mandukya Upanishad and the Bhagavad-Gita.
