Welcome from the Department Chairman    
Welcome to the Maharishi Vedic Science Department. What can you expect in the courses you take with us?

Our faculty have a wide range of training:

•  Dr. Egenes has written textbooks to teach Sanskrit which are used at many universities. He has translated sections of the Yoga Sutra and the Upanishad.

•  Dr. Finkelstein is passionate about Maharishi Vedic Science and religion. His courses are always full.

•  Dr. Sands has worked closely with our founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, in writing many books. Dr. Sands has recently written two books that explain principles in Maharishi Vedic Science.

•  I direct brain research in the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition, as well as teaching courses and touring in the U.S. and internationally, presenting on the brain and consciousness.

The courses are life-oriented:

The courses you take in this department are designed to allow you to explore your inner dimension — to find out who you are and how you relate to the environment. Our emphasis is on self-knowledge, on growth of higher states of consciousness.

I invite you to visit the Maharishi Veda Bhavan building, home of the MVS department, when you are on campus. We’re right across from the Argiro Student Center.

All the Best,
Fred Travis, PhD
Chair, Maharishi Vedic Science Department
