Our project includes a main group as well as a connected training programme that builds and replenishes the main group.
THE MAIN GROUP
Choosing Vedic Pandits to comprise our project’s group in India is both a traditional and practical decision. In ancient times, Vedic Pandits were traditionally responsible for maintaining harmony in society and balance in nature. And today India offers an economical venue that makes training Vedic Pandits as professional peace-creators a practical strategy.
The goal is to have 9,000 Maharishi Vedic Pandits in one group to create a worldwide peaceful effect. Supporting this group calls for providing salaries and establishing a full campus with infrastructure, accommodation, advanced training, meals, as well as a dairy and vegetable garden.
Currently about 2,000 Pandits are living at the main campus at the Brahmasthan – the geographic centre – of India near Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh.
THE PANDIT TRAINING PROGRAMME
In order to build up the main group and then compensate for natural attrition, a Pandit training programme has been established by Maharishi throughout India.
It supports and replenishes the group at the Brahmasthan and is designed to have enrolled:
– 20,000 younger students taking training at the village level
– 10,000 older students training at residential facilities.
The programme is set up to graduate 1,200–1,500 Pandits each year in order to ensure that the main group always stays above 9,000.
