Maharishi Purusha Capital | West Virginia, USA | Courses for Enlightenment Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Global Country of World Peace

World Peace Assemblies (For Men)

  • Spacious individual Maharishi Vastu® accommodations with panoramic mountain views
  • Enjoy deep rest and profound experience in the atmosphere created by Purusha
  • Delicious organic vegetarian cuisine and good company
  • Watch beautiful knowledge talks of Maharishi during the afternoons and evenings

World Peace Assemblies offer an opportunity for practitioners of the TM-Sidhi program to enjoy a weekend or week of extended practice of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs, gaining deep and revitalizing rest.

Enjoy the soft silent atmosphere created by Purusha in the deep seclusion of a forest setting. This the place to totally relax, switch off and dive into deep experiences. Enjoy the fresh mountain air and scenic walks and the added benefit of living in a Maharishi Vastu Architecture designed facility.

“The atmosphere is totally enveloped in a deep, soft silence and peace created by the Purusha doing long, deep meditations, and the experiences of all the men who attended the course with me, were the best they have had anywhere. And to top it off, it is very comfortable. It is an ideal place to go and really taste the inner essence of Maharishi’s teaching. It is obvious that much of Maharishi’s attention went into this wonderful place.”
—Michael Busch

“In over 35 years as a meditator I have never had such profoundly deep and clear programs as I experienced at the Purusha Capital in West Virginia. The facility is beautiful and comfortable in a pristine, quiet mountain setting. Most important though is being in the atmosphere of silence created by a powerful, coherent group of Purusha.”
—John Morehead, M.D.

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Over the years I've attended many wonderful courses in many locations, but the recent course at the new Purusha Capital in West Virginia was unique. The Purusha members were welcoming, the surroundings beautiful, and the silence golden and all pervading. Anyone who waits to attend a course here will wish they had come sooner.”
—Basil Henderson

“Excellent time of Rest/Relaxation. Great knowledge tapes. Some very deep meditations. Good solid experience with people here. I really liked the people on my course. Great atmosphere here in the mountains. Looking forward to coming back sometime soon.”
—D. S.

“Very enjoyable course, one of the best that I have ever been on! Program was great, smooth and restful—and really unbounded! Food was delicious! Atmosphere was sublime! I will be coming back soon!”
—R.L.

2022-23 Purusha CapitalSM
Course Schedule for Men

We are happy to announce the resumption of World Peace Assemblies at the Purusha Capital. Please see the schedule below for courses planned this year as well as a tentative schedule for 2023. The course schedule, including the number of courses to be held, is subject to change based on the COVID situation going forward. We may also add special guest Course Leaders at a later date. We have missed having our WPA course participants with us and look forward to seeing many of you again soon. 

We have scheduled the June and October 2022 WPAs for 12 days with the option to stay for 7 days, because we anticipate a 5-day COVID isolation period at the beginning of the course. During this 5-day period the course participants will enjoy the WPA program schedule and knowledge meetings in the WPA building and will eat in their own Dining Hall in the Purusha Dining Hall building.

We will also ask all course participants to take a COVID antigen test (a simple home test which gives results in 15 minutes) within three days prior to arrival, and be tested again after arrival.

If there are COVID developments that impact our ability to hold courses, we will inform everyone immediately, but for the time being we are comfortable with moving ahead with the above precautions.

We regret the inconvenience these new requirements represent for our course participants, but in our estimation this is the most prudent way to resume our course schedule after a 2 year suspension.

2022 Course Schedule

  • Summer World Peace Assembly:  June 20 (Monday) to June 27 (Monday) or June 20 to July 2 (Saturday), 7 nights ($950) or 12 nights ($1200)
  • Nine Days of Mother Divine WPA:  October 1 (Saturday) to October 7 (Saturday) or October 1 to October 12, (Wednesday), 7 nights ($950) or 12 nights ($1200)

Enjoy the Unique Environment of the Purusha Capital

The Purusha Capital provides a unique environment that is conducive to growth of higher states of consciousness. The deep silence, bliss, and coherence created by the Maharishi Purusha ProgramSM, living in Maharishi Vastu® Architecture buildings, tasty organic food, and being in the fresh air and beautiful mountain environment, all contribute to an ideal atmosphere for extended practice of the TM® and TM-Sidhi® programs. This, together with the sublime knowledge of Maharishi Vedic ScienceSM from the videos of Maharishi and presentations by leading Maharishi Vedic Science experts, makes for a delightful stay for course participants at the Purusha Capital.

Creating Coherence for Washington, D.C. and the World

The establishment of the Purusha Capital near Washington, D.C. constitutes the second element in Maharishi's formula for creating coherence and invincibility in America.  A large group of Yogic Flyers in Fairfield, Iowa, and a complementary group practicing Yogic FlyingSM near our nation's capital are keys to creating greater harmony and coherence both for the government and the nation as a whole during this time of transition in world consciousness.

Housing and Transportation

For photos of the Purusha Capital and more information on our facilities, please visit our housing page at PurushaCourses.org. Transportation to and from Dulles International Airport, just two hours away, is available for those flying to a course.
