The largest published collection of scholarly work on Maharishi Vedic Science and Consciousness-Based education will be available from MUM Press and the University Store—13 volumes covering 12 different disciplines.
Each book collects articles published over the past three decades, from early foundational articles in the discipline to more recent research. According to Dara Llewellyn, managing editor of the series, the books are oriented toward a range of audiences: those new to Maharishi's knowledge, scholars, and students.
"These books opened up my understanding of how consciousness applies in the various disciplines, and I think anyone would enjoy the richness of the articles," Ms. Llewellyn said.
She said some volumes have been used in classes, and will be of value to the Consciousness-Based schools and universities around the world because they offer a foundation and a comprehensive look at how to apply Consciousness-Based education in all these areas of thought.
"It was a wonderful experience the whole time I worked on these books, immersed in Maharishi's knowledge," Ms. Llewellyn said. "There are very rich articles in all of the volumes."
Each book has an introduction to the series that explains what Consciousness-Based education is, and the first appendix in each book is an overview article by Ken Chandler that examines all aspects of Maharishi Vedic Science in relationship to Consciousness-Based education.
In addition, each volume begins with foundational articles that are more theoretical and then includes articles that are research-oriented or practical applications of the theory. Some of the articles are also specifically pedagogical, showing how Consciousness-Based education can be applied in the classroom. And some are authored by students, such as exploring how the qualities of consciousness can enrich one's understanding of Thoreau's Walden.
The books also each have a list of additional resources at the end, including links and phone numbers.
The 13 volumes comprise two books related to mathematics, and one book each related to Maharishi Vedic Science, education, physiology & health, physics, literature, art, management, government, computer science, sustainable living, and world peace.
