Founder of the Science of Creative Intelligence and the Trancendental Meditation and T.M.Sidhi Programme, who has brought to light the profound parallels in Veda and modern science, has decided to train ten thousand Indian youths to collectively gain mastery over nature, to radiate Sattwa and purify world consciousness. After the training these enlightened individuals will go to all parts of the world and maintain higher consciousness in society. Natural law will support life every-where, seasons will come in time, individuals will live in perfect health and prosperity will be enjoyed in every hane, village and city. Life its own cultural integrity and will enjoy real freedom and invincibility. This will be the gift of India to the world.
The basis of Maharishi's blessing for the world is the infinite organizing power of pure knowledge, the Veda, which he naturally possesses from his tradition of Vedic masters.
This is a call for every ambitious youth who has faith in modern science and the ancient vedic wisdom of life. Parents who have the highest aspirations for their children should bless them and send them to participate in the programme to develope their full creative potential and adore the society as valuable ideal citizens to either assume administrative responsibilities in the World Government of the Age of Enlightenment in the country or abroad or choose to become industrialists and successfully lead the society in all fields.
The daily routine during the training will be based on the main principles of Veda, Science, Yagya, Yoga, Udyoga and Ayurveda.
Training of the youth in the agricultural, industrial, business, and management skills according to their aptitudes, while developing their intellectual genius and spiritual potential is a great nation-building educational programme which is unique and has arisen to fulfill the need of time.

A similar opportunity for self-development will also be available for retired people as soon as we have more comfortable facilities.
