The Indian media continues to report on the groundbreaking achievements of Maharishi University of Management in focusing concern on developing the full brain potential of students through the Transcendental Meditation Programme. The University announced its intention to provide students with a Brain Integration Report Card at its first annual National Brain Conference. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of education.
The conference asked educators to assess the negative impact that academic pressures, poor diet, binge drinking, sleep deprivation, and substance abuse have on the brain. These influences are, unfortunately, a part of most students' college experience.
The article noted that Maharishi University of Management officials claimed that by integrating TM into the curriculum, the educational experience could actually increase intelligence, improve academic performance, improve decision making and higher moral reasoning, and reduce stress-related disorders among students.
'If the purpose of higher education is to enable an individual to think and act successfully, then education is significant only when it enlivens the whole brain,' Fred Travis, director of the Brain Research Center, and chair of the department of the physiology and health at the University, was quoted as saying.
'Therefore, the level of integrated brain functioning is a reliable gauge of the success of a student's educational experience,' he added.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based— programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
