Be the change you want to see in the world.
You are interested in MVU because you want to help yourself and others attain the highest achievement for a human life. Maybe you have not articulated that until now, but if you are still here, it is evidence that you have a role to play in the grander scheme of things.
If you want to be a lifeguard, first you must become an expert swimmer. How can you save anyone if you cannot save yourself?
At MVU you will learn how to save yourself from the ignorance that is Kaliyug and actually accomplish this highest achievement for your life. Then you will be trained to teach and help others. When you have reached the Doctor of Divinity level, you will be a Vedic Master, fully capable of teaching others and helping them to achieve what you have achieved. You will have complete knowledge of the totality of life and the ability to convey this knowledge and provide the practical techniques to help others.
We are very fortunate to be alive today, because in our lifetimes we will see the full sunshine of Heaven on Earth. What does this mean? Over 5,000 years ago, Lord Krishna, the Supreme Personality of God for all the innumerable universes, incarnated in His full glory. As the Iron Age, Kali Yuga, began to dawn, Lord Krishna ended His incarnation but promised to send a 10,000 year Golden Age in about 5,000 years. This would be a miniature Sat Yuga (normally Sat Yuga lasts for 1.7 million years). Maharishi acknowledged the Dawn of the Age of Enlightenment and the beginning of Heaven on Earth in 1975.
We have presently passed through just over 5,000 years of Kali yuga. As was predicted by Lord Krishna, this period from the end of the previous age to the present comprising 5,000 years was a period of great degradation and darkness. The great and ancient Vedic culture of India was lost and the so-called followers became ritualistic practitioners, interested only in the bodily conception of life. The four pillars of spiritual life, namely truthfulness, austerity, cleanliness, and mercy are practically nonexistent today, even in the so-called holy sites of pilgrimage. The general mass of people have no interest in God, and any remnant of religion they might still follow is simply for the purpose of economic development. In the name of God so many sinful acts are being carried out throughout the world. Killing of innocent animals, intoxication, illicit sex, and gambling have become common and "natural" activities supported by the governments and religions of the world. All of these points confirm Lord Krishna's prediction regarding the first 5,000 years of the Kali yuga.
We are now in the transition period between the end of Kali yuga and the start of a 10,000 year Sat yuga. The need of the times is for many individuals to become aware of their Dharma and awaken to their Truth, and be they change they want to see in the world.
