Thathuvagnani Vethathiri Maharishi the founder Father of WCSC is a multi dimensional genius, simple and yet wholesome (Pouranam). Any facet or section of his teachings, it is complete and total. Research and Development was always his favorite as he wanted the scientist to take up his philosophy and hypothesis and study them in detail subject it into research. He expected the scientific community to absorb his philosophy into science wherever possible. Infact Maharishi was advocating and working for the unification of science and spirituality. The main object of Research and Development department is to achieve the same. The R&D department establish in principle in 2006 and was officially formalized in 2007.
R&D conducted the first SKY Doctors Conference on 16th, 17th & 18th Feb – 2007 at Temple of Consciousness, Aliyar, as its maiden event. It has taken up the study of personality development in Vision students. Benefits of Kayakalpa, Exercises and Meditation in arulnidies are also being studied. Mounam experiences and it’s depths are also studied. Research in the medical benefits of Mana Vala Kalai (MVK) Yoga in patients and its preventive abilities in normal subjects are also being studied.
The philosophy and teachings of Yogiraj Vethathiri Maharishi provide humanity a
spiritual, scientific, simple and practical way of living without conflicts within
one's own mind and guidance to resolve the conflicts in the society and in the community
of nations. It is the earnest wish to Maharishi that all the secrets of philosophy
and science blossomed in him must go to the human society and become the property
All the conflicts that exist at various levels are due to lack of purity of thoughts,
lack of clarity and peace in the mind and lack of realization that man is potentially
divine. With a view to removing these deficiencies.
Maharishi has evolved a practical philosophy for harmonious living and to cater
the same philosophy all over the world. As a vehicle for his work he founded the
World Community Service Centre in 1958. His philosophy covers every aspect of our
lives: body, mind and senses and hence is a total package comprising simple and
effective exercises, KayaKalpa techniques to keep the body fit, Simplified Kundalini
Meditation for a serene mind, self introspection techniques for purification of
thoughts and Brahma Gnanam to realize the divinity in Man. Thousands of people have
been benefited by this package which is a well-tested practical way for a harmonious,
peaceful and purposeful life. There are now more than 200 affiliated branches of
WCSC in India, Korea, Malaysia, Japan and USA. As an international service wing
of WCSC the Brain Trust has been formed.
This Trust is founded on the realization that the earth is one and the sea is one,
although they seem to be several by the intervention of one another. Humanity is
one and the goal of all is the same. Every one is born, lives and dies at a certain
time. During the period of living one should understand the value of life, friendship
and peace and lead a peaceful and harmonious life. To achieve this goal the realization
of Truth and Consciousness is a must. With this light of knowledge each person is
to do his duty to help others know the Truth and lead a successful life. We also
acknowledge the fact that everyone's life is intrinsically and inevitably linked
with the whole of human society and that all the necessities of life are being produced
by the labor and intellect of people throughout the past and in the present. This
trust is constituted to help all people live in light of the above realisation and
in UNITY, PROSPERITY AND PEACE.
Today's world is full of problems at all levels, not due to Nature but mainly due
to man's misunderstandings and misconceptions. In the absence of a scientific approach,
the various shades of religions have divided the people thus depriving them of their
ability to love others. In the absence of a coherent and philosophical base, science
is full of basic problems begging for fundamental solutions; likewise technology
has been used more for destruction than for construction. In every country, rather
than ethical behavior we see violent activities and a pathetic neglect of other's
feelings, comforts and freedom. Even in the family life there are innumerable problems
for each individual, whether poor, affluent, educated or illiterate.
Even after witnessing the horrors of war and its cruel impact on the women and children,
it is a matter of great regret that war is still considered a means to settle issues.
After a war only the successful and efficient murderers are the survivors - the
- so-called victors. If war continues on the earth we will be left with only a population
of heartless murderers! Is that the situation we want to have?
Everywhere and in every mind there is a feeling that this situation should change.
How can we bring about the required changes so that everyone would be free to enjoy
a peaceful and secure life? The "Brain Trust" is a small step in that direction.
We must strive for a cultural evolution to suit the practical needs of the modern
age. There are innumerable rituals and dogmas followed today. When examing them
we see there are many which are entirely unnecessary and unsuitable. Of course,
every ritual and its concepts originally had its own merit and benefits. But we
find many of them are started in one place at one time according to specific needs
and circumstances. Due to the natural course of cultural evolution life is constantly
changing. Therefore, all rituals and other concepts are to be frequently analyzed
and reformed. This could be done only with the have an international outlook and
wish to sincerely serve humanity. For this service to sincerely serve humanity.
For this service we have constituted a Brain Trust consisting of eminent people
of various fields, humanitarians as well as scholars.
Maharishi's teachings have the vitality to bring social, cultural and spiritual
reform, being universal and scientific. This Trust endeavors to link world leaders,
scientists, thinkers and teachers all over the world. With their co-operation and
active participation the Trust strives to take Maharishi's philosophy and teachings
to classrooms through a syllabus structure, to the international scientific community
through seminars and journals, and to the general public through all possible media.
Through practice of simple meditation and introspection techniques systematized
by Maharishi, people are enabled to develop in intuition so as to understand for
themselves the subtle truths of Nature and life. By this work the Trust hopes to
lay a foundation for a spiritual and cultural evolution, leading to realization
of the higher human potential and the cosmic consciousness, which is working as
an unfailing cause-and-effect system. Only if we can elevate the human consciousness
through spiritual and cultural evolution would it be possible to counter and meutralise
the strangleholds of groupism, misconceptions, and deleterious and wasteful habits.
It is the solemn duty of the Brain Trust to assist in bringing philosophers, scientists,
thinkers and world leaders together so as to take the universal philosophy and external
teachings of Maharishi to all people. This work is not a luxury; nor is it merely
for academic rhetoric and aesthetic pleasure; it is an urgent need for mankind if
the world is to be saved from greater suffering in future.
This work is an answer to the call of Maharishi in one of his poems:
