About Your Host for This Course

The Maharishi Purusha Program, commonly called ‘Purusha,’ will be your host. Purusha is a unique program designed by Maharishi for Sidha men who wish to enjoy extended practice of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Program and create enlightenment for themselves while enlivening Invincibility in the collective consciousness of the world. The Purusha program is designed for those who are free from immediate family and other obligations, allowing them time to focus exclusively on their own evolution. Participants in the Maharishi Vedic Leadership Forum will be enjoying the wonderful atmosphere this group creates while attending this ten-day course. Learn about the NextGen Purusha program here >
