About the Next Generation PurushaSM Program

Andrew Rushing

“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.”
—Andrew Rushing

“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

The Next Generation Purusha program is a new in-residence rounding program at the Maharishi Purusha Capital for the Western WorldSM for male sidhas age 50 or younger who want to focus full-time on gaining enlightenment and creating World Peace.

Participants enjoy extended group practice of the TM® and TM-Sidhi® programs, the best of Maharishi’s talks, and courses given by visiting leaders of Maharishi’s worldwide TM organization. And for those who wish, there are opportunities to work on projects that help fulfill Maharishi’s initiatives around the world, including teaching the TM program.

There are several ways to join:

Dr. Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D., leader of the Global Country of World Peace, made the following comments on this new initiative to create a next generation of Purusha:

Go ahead and make it happen. This is really the future. Maharishi has counted on Purusha to be the silent administrators of every country in the world and their presence for him in the world is like his own presence, his own Being, and the presence of Guru Dev himself.  —Sept 23rd, 2018

About the Maharishi Purusha CapitalSM

Our 420 acre campus was designed by Maharishi to support a group of Purusha generation after generation. It features Maharishi Vastu® buildings, expansive mountain views, beautifully landscaped grounds, organic vegetarian dining, and great recreation facilities (lake, tennis court, hiking trails).

Joining the Next Generation Purusha Program

This program officially begins on June 28th, 2019 with the 10-day Maharishi Vedic Leadership Forum. However you can start at other times as well. For those coming on June 28th, the Forum will be part of the Next Generation Purusha program.

Time commitment: Since this is a longer-term program which includes extended practice of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs, we ask that you commit to joining it for at least two months. This will contribute maximum to the group coherence and will allow enough time to decide if this program is the right fit for you.

Those who stay longer term will be eligible to participate in the opportunities described below (MUM online degree programs, special projects, teaching TM, and taking the Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course).

For questions about this program please email nextgen.

Maharishi Vedic Leadership Forum

This recently released course on the science and art of supreme leadership will be conducted by Raja John Konhaus, who has directed the Maharishi Vedic Leadership Forum over the past several summers. He will be joined by Dr. Fred Travis, who is the Chairman of the Department of Vedic Science at MUM.

Recorded and presented exclusively by Maharishi, this unique course reveals his Vedic approach to leadership and governing with unprecedented depth and clarity. It illuminates the role of consciousness in creating successful leaders. Throughout the thirty-plus hours of lessons, Maharishi details both the knowledge and the experience of Unity Consciousness, and how we can learn to lead with the full support of the Vedic Devata, or Laws of Nature that serve as the source and control point of all our actions.
