Science and spirituality merge as leading scientists, artists and business leaders present cutting-edge knowledge to Indian communities throughout North America.

A team of leading scientists, artists and business leaders is touring 10 North American cities in April and May, delivering a series of cutting-edge presentations entitled 'A New Paradigm: Veda, Consciousness, the Ramayana, and the Self'. The tour includes visits to San Diego; San Francisco; Vancouver; Fairfield, Iowa; Chicago; Toronto; Montreal; Boston; New York; and Washington, DC.

The event explores the meeting point of science and spirituality by presenting pioneering research that reveals the Veda and the Ramayana as blueprints of our body and the entire universe. Extensive research on these breakthrough discoveries has also documented collective benefits for society, including the potential for creating world peace. The event will feature a video presentation of 1,000 Vedic Pandits in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, chanting the Veda. 


The speakers at this event come from diverse backgrounds. Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D., neuroscientist and researcher, will headline the event as the keynote speaker with his presentation, ''Embodying Totality''. Dr. Nader received his Ph.D. in the area of Brain and Cognitive Science from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and completed post-doctoral work at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Nader's desire to gain a deeper understanding of the human mind and body—of consciousness and physiology—led him to the study of Vedic Science under the guidance of the Vedic sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the worldwide Transcendental Meditation (TM) program. Dr. Nader's discoveries have inspired medical doctors and scientists throughout the world by demonstrating the effectiveness of Vedic sound to heal mind, body and society (for example: 'Enlivening the healing ability of the body through Maharishi Vedic Sound').

John Hagelin, PhD, is a world-renowned Harvard-trained quantum physicist, educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace. Winner of the prestigious Kilby Award, Dr. Hagelin was recognized for his achievements as a scientist in the tradition of Einstein, Jeans, Bohr, and Eddington. He is Chairman of the Physics Department at Maharishi University of Management and will speak on ''Consciousness and the Unified Field.''

Ramani Ayer was the first Indo-American CEO of a Fortune 100 company. He was Chairman of the Board and CEO of The Hartford Financial Services Group for 13 years, retiring in 2009. Mr. Ayer will speak on ''Enlightened Leadership and World Peace.''

Joining these speakers via videoconference will be special guests—Hollywood director David Lynch, and the Sagar family, of Ramayana fame, from Mumbai.

David Lynch is acclaimed as one of the most creative minds in film, art, and music today.  He is also the founder of the David Lynch Foundation.

Ramanand Sagar created the original epic Ramayana film series in 1987, inspiring all of India while preserving Vedic values in the culture.  The next generation of Sagars—Prem, Anand, Shiv and Shakti of Sagar Arts—created the 2008 remake of this timeless saga.

Global Good News will publish more of this news release, which goes on to describe the three main themes the speakers are addressing in each venue, as well as the special seminar on Ramayan in Human Physiology that Dr Nader is also offering in many cities. Global Good News will also feature updates from several cities en route as the New Paradigm tour progresses from west to east across North America.
