Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is the Founder of Consciousness-Based Education in many schools and universities around the globe. As a result of this educational approach, students grow in the awareness that all streams of knowledge are but modes of their own intelligence.
The curriculum of Maharishi schools and universities is the most advanced and sophisticated curriculum in the world. Consciousness-Based Education achieves the total development of the human brain—enlightenment—and delivers Total Knowledge to every student.
Fifty years of constant teaching activity around the world have made Maharishi widely known and revered. He combines expertise from both modern science and ancient wisdom. He has thus been uniquely qualified to bring about a synthesis of objective, material science with the subjective Vedic science of consciousness.
For his contributions to this profound body of knowledge, Maharishi is widely recognized as the world's foremost Vedic scholar, as well as the leading scientist of consciousness. For his practical ability to teach the transcending process, and open the experience of the unified field in Transcendental Consciousness to millions around the world, he is similarly understood to be the most effective teacher of enlightenment in many generations.
'If we look into the process of gaining knowledge we find there are two sides to knowledge: the object of knowledge, that which we seek to know, and the subject of knowledge, the knower. What the present system of education provides is knowledge of the object; what it misses is knowledge of the subject, knowledge of the knower in the knower's infinite capacity. When the knower is ignorant about the Self, the whole structure of knowledge is as if baseless,' Maharishi said.
Education at Maharishi schools and Maharishi universities enlivens in every student's awareness the common basis of the knower and the known, the Unified Field of Natural Law. Every part of knowledge is connected with the whole discipline, and the whole discipline with the Unified Field of Natural Law, which students experience directly as the deepest level of their own intelligence during the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
As a result of this educational approach, students grow in the awareness that all streams of knowledge are but modes of their own intelligence. They come to feel at home with everyone and everything. Their creative genius blossoms with increasing confidence and self-sufficiency. They cease to violate Natural Law and grow in the ability to accomplish anything and to spontaneously think and act free from mistakes—the fruit of all knowledge.
'The creative genius of the student blossoms as his awareness is identified more and more fully with the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature,' Maharishi said. 'Instinctively his thoughts are right; he does not make mistakes; his behavior is spontaneously evolutionary. He grows in ideal citizenship—the ability to fulfill his own interests and promote the interests of society simultaneously. The natural simplicity of his life radiates the dignity of higher states of consciousness.'
Maharishi attributes all his achievements to Shri Guru Dev, His Divinity Swami Brahmananda Saraswati Maharaj, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Badarikashram, Himalayas, the most illustrious embodiment of Vedic Wisdom in the eternal tradition of Vedic Masters.
