The enlightened leadership of Dr Bevan Morris
Excerpts from a presentation by Dr Craig Pearson, Executive Vice President, Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa, USA
10 March 2008

For over 35 years Dr Bevan Morris has worked as a teacher and administrator in Maharishi’s worldwide Transcendental Meditation Movement. Dr Morris has overseen the diverse educational and world peace programmes of Maharishi Universities of Management, and presented the Consciousness-Based Educational programmes of its founder His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in over 100 countries around the world to government, education and business leaders.

Dr Bevan Morris is President and Chairman of the Board of Trustees of Maharishi University of Management. He has been president of the University since 1980, making him the longest-standing president of any college or university in Iowa and one of the longest-standing in the country, and he has led the University through countless achievements over the past 27 years, including the construction of the Golden Domes, the historic Taste of Utopia Assembly in 1983–84 (which created a worldwide wave of coherence, harmony, and peace at a critical time in the nation’s history), the expansion of the Fairfield business community, the University’s accreditation at the PhD level, the construction of the award winning Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment, and many more.

In 2000, Dr Morris was appointed to be the Minister of Enlightenment of the Global Country of World Peace, which was founded by Maharishi to unite the world family—all nations, cultures, religions, and peoples—in permanent world peace, by awakening the cosmic potentiality of every human being in enlightenment— Unity Consciousness.

In March 2003, Dr Morris became the President of the Maharishi World Peace Fund, an organization dedicated to building Peace Palaces in each of the 3,000 largest cites of the word, which will offer Maharishi’s scientifically verified programmes for individual and collective peace.

Dr Morris now takes the pivotal role as the Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, with responsibility for guiding Consciousness-Based initiatives all over the world. He has travelled to more than 100 countries around the globe, presenting Consciousness-Based Education to leaders in government, education, business, and science.

Together with Raja [Administrator] John Hagelin, he has also been leading the Invincible America Assembly since July 2006, which has produced dramatic changes in the collective coherence of America — a sharp upturn in the stock market and a marked rise in the desire for peace on the part of the American people and Congressional leaders.

Dr Morris was instructed in Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation Programme by Maharishi when he was a 19-year-old college student in Australia, and he has dedicated his life to helping Maharishi fulfil his goal of enlightenment for every individual, invincibility for every nation, and peace for our world family.

For almost 30 years, Dr Morris has been honoured and deeply appreciated for his great wisdom, his compassionate heart, and his tireless organizing power, guiding the development and growth of Consciousness-Based Education.

Dr Morris is respected and world renowned for his deep and complete comprehension of Maharishi's Vedic Science. He has an extraordinary ability to present Total Knowledge in a way that the listener can truly understand and relate to his own life.
