Dedicated to research in the knowledge and technologies of Maharishi Vedic Science, MVRI welcomes collaboration—research development and educational engagement across all disciplines of Maharishi Vedic Science. Being a science of consciousness and all its expressions, Maharishi Vedic Science includes technologies for the development of consciousness and unfoldment of knowledge for beneficial applications across all areas of life.
The word “Veda” is a Sanskrit term meaning “knowledge and all its expressions”and Maharishi Vedic Science is the systematic and rigorous scientific study of the source, course and goal of knowledge as contained in the Veda and Vedic literature as brought to light and explained by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi—a great modern scholar of the Vedic tradition.
Divided into 40 discrete areas of investigation, the Veda and Vedic literature include Ṛik Veda, Sāma Veda, Yajur Veda, Atharva Veda and 36 additional aspects of Vedic literature—including Ayurveda (the science of health), Gandharva Veda (the science of music), Sthapātya Veda (the science of architecture, arts and the environment), and Vedānta (or Uttarā Mīmāṃsā, the scientific inquiry into the total knowledge). These together, with all the Vedic disciplines, make up the totality of knowledge. Each has a correlate in modern science and the modern disciplines that collectively constitute the corpus of scientific knowledge.
Each aspect of Vedic literature has been examined in the context of the structure and functioning of the human physiology and the dynamics of consciousness as documented by Dr Tony Nader, the Patron of MVRI, in his books: Human Physiology: Expression of Veda and Vedic Literature, and Ramayana in Human Physiology, and about which he speaks in the following videos:
In addition to the traditional branches of Vedic knowledge, Maharishi Vedic Science has application in daily life through a variety of well-developed technologies that can, and have been, investigated scientifically for their positive impact on, and contribution to, education, sustainable business, art and architecture, healthcare, government and economics, consciousness studies, peace studies, and environmental science.
MVRI examines and documents both the core theoretical foundations of Maharishi Vedic Science as well as their application through relevant Vedic technologies. The value of this research for Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region is multi-fold, since it extends across those key areas of education, healthcare, new technologies of consciousness, architecture, government and global peace initiatives. MVRI engages in collaborative ventures to explore such domains and outcomes in these areas of life.
