Let's face it—university degrees are hard to tell apart. The most important thing seems to be to have a degree, and that certainly is important. We believe there is something more important—wisdom. At UPR you will receive everything you would at any other school but with the added dimension of wisdom, or as we say here, "practical and profound wisdom for the 21st century." How can we do that? It's surprisingly simple. We know the world's wisdom traditions—that is, the best that human beings have thought throughout history and all over the world, and we infuse that wisdom into our curriculum. We've been nurturing and teaching the world's wisdom since 1934, and we are excited to do it now with new technology and in an age that needs wisdom more than ever. Practical and profound wisdom for the 21st century—that's why UPR is the place for you.
The world we live in today is ruled by fear—fear of life and fear of death. Wisdom alone can overcome fear. Love rules the sphere of the wise. Those who have learned to love life in its deepest and most mystical sense have escaped from bondage to fear and dwell in peace with all things.
