The term “Maharishi” signifies the revival of Ayurvedic knowledge in its pure, authentic Vedic form; the result of more than 50 years of tireless research in consultation with hundreds of Ayurvedic experts, by the foremost Vedic scholar of our age, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Maharishi Ayurveda offers treatments and herbal preparations in complete accordance with procedures in the classical Vedic texts without compromise, dilution, or cutting corners.
The Transcendental Meditation Technique:
Furthermore, Maharishi Ayurveda reconnects the science of Ayu, life, and human physiology to consciousness and the unified field of all the laws of nature, the Veda. This principle of consciousness at the basis of physiology is fundamental to Maharishi Ayurveda. Therefore, the optional but highly recommended Transcendental Meditation Technique (TM) ® is also offered at The Raj. (www.tm.org) The TM technique is the most highly researched, scientifically validated meditation technique proven to: develop the total brain, increase intelligence and creativity, reduce stress and anxiety, enhances relationships, and promote health, longevity, and global health and world peace.
