Maharishi University of Management (MUM)
For more than 40 years, Maharishi University of Management (MUM) has pioneered a new approach to learning, called Consciousness-Based℠ education, which supplies a missing element to education. All students and faculty at MUM practice the Transcendental Meditation® (TM) technique. This simple technique offers remarkable benefits for education, as extensive research shows — integrated brain functioning, increased creativity and intelligence, reduced stress, improved learning ability, improved academic performance (GPA), improved ability to focus, improved health, and many more. Students study each subject in light of fundamental principles of their own consciousness. These are universal principles of life that enable students to see the unity among all fields of knowledge as well as the connection between knowledge and their own self. Education until now has been information-based. At MUM we go beyond acquiring information by developing consciousness and brain functioning.
The founder of Maharishi University of Management was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. In 1955 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi began to offer to the world the quintessence of the ancient Vedic wisdom of the Himalayas. He introduced the simple, natural, and universal technique of Transcendental Meditation®. This extraordinary technique has been used by sages both ancient and modern to experience and utilize the field of pure consciousness—the transcendental field at the basis of the universe. Maharishi developed Consciousness-Based℠ education for MIU (later MUM), so that students could discover the field of pure consciousness within themselves as the source of all knowledge.
