The foundation of the Maharishi University of Vedic Medicine curriculum is Total Knowledge of Natural Law, which is available in the field of pure consciousness. The self-interacting dynamics of this unified field constitutes the most basic level of Nature's dynamics and is governed by its own set of fundamental laws. Just as the constitution of a nation represents the most fundamental level of national law and the basis of all laws governing the nation, the laws governing the self-interacting dynamics of the unified field represent the most fundamental level of Natural Law and the basis of all known Laws of Nature. The laws governing the self-interacting dynamics of the unified field are called the Constitution of the Universe—the eternal, non-changing basis of Natural Law and the ultimate source of the order and harmony displayed throughout creation.
Total Knowledge includes the complete intellectual and experiential knowledge of the Constitution of the Universe.
Students receive intellectual understanding of Total Knowledge by connecting every subject of study and every main idea with its holistic basis in consciousness; and every day they directly experience the Constitution of the Universe as their own Self during their daily Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme. Through this Total Knowledge-based curriculum, students spontaneously gain the habit of functioning in accord with Total Natural Law—they begin to enjoy a life without mistakes, without causing problems for themselves or others, while promoting their own health, and providing the real basis for success, not only in their medical career but also in every aspect of life.
