The entrepreneurs discussed here all practice the Transcendental Meditation program (TM) as taught by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Many moved to Fairfield, Iowa to meditate and be part of a world peace project at Maharishi University of Management (MUM) .
TM is a simple, natural, effortless technique that increases clarity of thinking, and improves health and relationships. Meditators twice daily quiet their minds and in doing so release physical stress. As a result meditators experience happier and easier lives.
At MUM students experience a traditional education studying the arts and sciences. In addition, to complete the academic experience, students through their meditation practice and accompanying knowledge become intimate with the knower, the perceiver of the various academic disciplines.
Students discover at MUM that all academic disciplines are an expression of the Consciousness that they experience each day in meditation, and hence become increasingly comfortable with each discipline.
Many of the entrepreneurs featured at this website were successful even though they had little business background. Like MUM students, from their daily meditation, they became familiar and comfortable with the source of thought, with the source of the knowledge required to be successful at business.
