The Mother Divine Program is administered by the nonprofit Maharishi Global Administration Through Natural Law and offers single ladies the opportunity to focus on their own spiritual development to deepen their experiences of the Transcendental Meditation technique and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Program and to simultaneously radiate a powerful influence of harmony and bliss throughout the world. In the Vedic tradition of India, the expression Mother Divine refers to the universal, all-nourishing qualities of nature bliss, intelligence, creativity, harmony that exist within everyone and always promote life in the direction of peace and progress. Every aspect of the Mother Divine Program is specially designed to unfold these qualities of the inner fullness of life.
