The fundamental knowledge of Maharishi Vedic University is Maharishi's Vedic Science, which contains the knowledge of Natural Law and its practical applications in the 40 areas of Veda and the Vedic Literature--total knowledge of Natural Law in its most concentrated form.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of Maharishi Vedic University, defines his Vedic Science:

"My Vedic Science is the science of Veda.

Veda means knowledge. Therefore, my Vedic Science, the science of Veda, is the science of complete knowledge.

Knowledge results from the coming together of the knower, the process of knowing, and the object of knowing--knowledge blossoms in the togetherness of knower, process of knowing, and known. Therefore, knowledge is the Unified Field of knower, process of knowing, and known; therefore,

My Vedic Science, the science of knowledge, is the science of the Unified Field of knower, process of knowing, and known.

In Vedic terms, the Unified Field is called SAMHITA, the knower is called RISHI, the process of knowing is called DEVATA, and the known is called CHHANDAS; therefore,

My Vedic Science, the science of the Unified Field of knower, process of knowing, and known, is the science of Samhita of Rishi, Devata, and Chhandas. As the Samhita of Rishi, Devata, and Chhandas is available to us as Rik Veda Samhita, my Vedic Science is the science of Rik Veda.

Those who practise the Transcendental Meditation technique have the experience that Transcendental Consciousness is unbounded awareness--it is pure wakefulness; it is fully awake within itself; it knows only itself and nothing else.

Knowing itself only, Transcendental Consciousness is the knower, it is the process of knowing, and also it is the known--it is all three itself--it is togetherness of the knower, knowing, and known. It is the Samhita of Rishi, Devata, and Chhandas; therefore,

My Vedic Science, the science of the Samhita of Rishi, Devata, Chhandas, is the science of Transcendental Consciousness, which is self-referral consciousness, or pure consciousness; therefore,

My Vedic Science is the Science of Consciousness."

(from Vedic Knowledge for Everyone, 1994, pp. 154-157).

Maharishi's Vedic Science is a complete science in that it gives complete understanding and experience of all three components of knowledge--the knower, the process of knowing, and the known.

Maharishi's Vedic Science unfolds the knowledge of knower, process of knowing, and known through study and direct experience of their unified basis, called in terms of Vedic Science, Samhita--Transcendental Consciousness, the total potential of creative intelligence. In terms of modern physics, Transcendental Consciousness is understood as the Unified Field of Natural Law, the self-interacting field of intelligence at the basis of all the Laws of Nature.
