The 42nd graduation of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) on June 24, 2017, in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, was the largest in its 47-year history. Following is an excerpt from the commencement address given by U.S. Congressman Tim Ryan:
''Everywhere I travel I see the outreach of this great university: Transcendental Meditation—the meditation you practice, the meditation you research, the meditation you teach—is now being offered in big companies and small family-owned businesses, in hospitals and clinics, in tough inner-city schools and military bases, in prisons and homeless shelters,'' Congressman Ryan said.
''Transcendental Meditation is helping to unlock the limitless potential of the human mind. It is an essential tool that can immeasurably enrich our lives and help us take on intractable ills like prejudice, violence, and addiction. Your university is working to identify, implement, and bring to scale innovative knowledge and technologies that promise to completely restructure the way we educate our young, heal our sick, grow our food, and safeguard our borders.
''And that's why I'm here today: to put out the call. To you. As students dedicated to developing the full value of human consciousness, you are all desperately needed in the global challenge to find a new path forward. . . .
''We are living in a moment that calls out for leaders who are wiser, smarter, and bigger than our problems. We need leaders who are established in that underlying unity of life,'' Congressman Ryan said.
