Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, celebrated its 42nd commencement on June 24. U.S. Congressman Tim Ryan from Ohio's 13th District delivered the commencement address. Congressman Ryan has served eight consecutive terms in the House of Representatives since 2003 and has taken a national leadership role in improving access to healthcare, promoting ways to make college more affordable, and expanding renewable energy. He has also raised awareness about the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation technique and is working to make it accessible to hundreds of thousands of veterans.
In his speech, Congressman Ryan challenged the graduates to find innovative solutions to the seemingly intractable problems facing the world by first developing the full creative potential of their consciousness.
''Graduates, we are living in a moment that calls out for you, because you are those rare positive disruptors—creative, open, smart, self-driven, resilient, fearless,'' Congressman Ryan said. ''You are the modern-day explorers. Your meditation practice will assist you in navigating the turbulent waters of modern society. Your Consciousness-Based education has prepared you to take your place among those leaders who are redefining the rules and changing the way we all see things. Our nation and the world desperately need you now.''
