ELI Purusha

EnlightenedLeadershipProgram.orgSM is a part of the Global Country of World Peace and was established to foster the next generation of leaders of the global TM organization and to meet the needs of the younger practitioners of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs.

ELI PurushaSM was established for the next generation of single men under the age of 45 who practice Transcendental Meditation and wish to dedicate themselves to the most rapid pace of evolution possible and structure their life from the most fundamental level of the home of all the Laws of Nature. Our goals include inspiring more young people to become members of Purusha, create young groups of Purusha on every continent, and promote the activities of the Global Country of World Peace in order to create greater peace and harmony in the world.

We have structured several new opportunities for young people to participate in ELI Purusha and the Maharishi Purusha Program:

Full-time MUM students in an undergraduate degree program may qualify for credit towards their degree by attending Purusha for one year. Financial aid through MUM may also be available.


MUM students may be able to get credit and financial aid for a Forest Academy by taking the Enlightened Leadership International WPA at the Purusha Capital in West Virginia. Please contact us for more details.




It is now possible to be on Purusha and attend the Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course, spend time afterwards teaching in a TM center, and then join us for extended practice of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs at one of our Purusha facilities. Current teachers of the TM program can split time between teaching at a TM center or working on a project in the field and being with Purusha at one of our homes.


Participants of this program can work year round on projects at a Purusha facility, or spend part of their time at a Purusha facility and part of their time on a special National or International project in the field. Participation will depend upon one’s talents and interest and project availability. Please contact us if you are interested in this program.

“My experience on the 2nd annual ELI Purusha Course was an absolute joy! I knew already the deep rest I would gain and profound knowledge I would be reminded of, but most profound was the ever expanding love I would feel for the world and the people around me.”
—Keelan Dimick

“I had heard about Purusha and had an idea about what that kind of life might be like, but no previous conclusion could possibly do justice to the immediate experience of the gentle power that is found here.”
