Watch Jim Carrey’s full commencement address that he gave to the Maharishi University of Management’s graduating class of 2014 in Fairfield, Iowa, in which the actor offered inspiring words to the graduates about life and their future.
“Like many of you, I was concerned about going out into the world and doing something bigger than myself, until someone smarter than myself made me realize that there is nothing bigger than myself,” Carrey said. “My soul is not contained within the limits of my body; my body is contained within the limitlessness of my soul.”
The speech received a rousing reaction from the graduating students of the institution, which according to its website is a place where “all students and faculty … practice the Transcendental Meditation® technique.”
Carrey jokingly thanked, “The trustees, the administrators, the faculty of MUM for creating an institution worthy of Maharishi’s ideals of education as well as enabling the students through transcendental meditation and ancient vedic knowledge to slack off twice a day for an hour and a half.”
Maharishi University of Management granted degrees to 285 students representing 54 countries. The University Board of Trustees also presented Mr. Carrey with the honorary degree of Doctor of Fine Arts Honoris Causa, in recognition of his significant lifetime achievements as a world-renowned comedian and actor, artist, author and philanthropist.
