During a recent Global Family Chat on the Maharishi Channel, Dr Ashley Deans, Director of the award-winning Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, spoke about Maharishi's contribution to the field of education, explaining in detail Consciousness-Based Education and the many benefits gained from it.
Dr Deans began by saying that over the past 15 years, due to Maharishi's Consciousness-Based Education, the concept of education has been changed. 'Formerly there was no concept that one could know everything. Now any child can grow up to enjoy the fruit of all knowledge—to know anything, do anything, and accomplish anything. Education has gone from a struggle to a joy for every student, and also allows them to contribute to creating Invincibility for their country,' Dr Deans said.
He explained that Maharishi's analysis is so simple—the three-fold structure of learning that includes the knower, the process of knowing, as well as the subject to be known. This gives every student the experience of Total Knowledge within themselves.
'While modern education offers very little in learning about the process of knowing, with Maharishi's Vedic Education perception refines through the process of knowing to the extent that one can experience finer levels of creation. Nothing in modern education develops the holistic working of the brain. Modern education doesn't even consider the knower,' Dr Deans said.
Next Dr Deans discussed how the practice of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Technique, a main feature of Consciousness-Based Education, helps promote development of higher states of consciousness in students through total brain development.
'Education has needed something that can make students more intelligent and more alert. Maharishi has developed a total system of education.'
