The twenty-first century requires wise leaders who can:
—Embody positivity and harmony and raise government and society to a new, enlightened level, where everyone is nourished and supported;
—Rise to the highest levels of individual performance while enabling others to attain peak team performance;
—Achieve global harmony while supporting cultural traditions;
—Achieve economic development for everyone while sustaining the earth's ecosystems.
Maharishi Academy has been designed to prepare students for maximum growth in the direction of becoming such wise leaders.
What leadership qualities can be developed at Maharishi Academy?
—The ability to not make mistakes. This can be achieved when the student is growing in intelligence and creativity each day through their practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique.
—Leaders become shining examples of health, happiness, and success when they do not violate Natural Law.
—The ability to create innovative paths to progress in harmony with Natural Law. When the field of cosmic intelligence is lively in the students' awareness then he sees that anything is possible to achieve.
—The skill to inspire individuals to work together for a shared vision.
—The ability to awaken the Unified Field of consciousness in every undertaking thereby unifying the joyful world of differences and diversity and averting negativity, discrimination, and all behavior damaging to human life.
—The capacity to bring out the best in others through improved teamwork and harmony and help everyone to achieve prosperity, progress, achievement, and fulfillment.
—The capability to act with broad comprehension while being able to focus sharply.
—The ability to maintain a high level of moral development.
For these leadership qualities to become a living reality, education must actualize the full potential of the most precious resource of the country, the human brain of every citizen.
Research clearly indicates that education today is not realizing this immense potential, with the exception of universities and schools that are directly developing the consciousness of the students through the approach of Consciousness-BasedSM education.
Considering institutions as a whole, students at universities and schools using Consciousness-Based education are found to be distinctly more committed academically, more alert, more healthy and balanced, more self-actualized, more satisfied with their education, more harmonious in their relationships, and more mature in moral judgment, compared to students at other educational institutions.
Amidst worldwide dissatisfaction with education today, Consciousness-Based education has been shown by research and educational outcomes to be singularly effective in producing students who are steadily growing in the most cherished qualities of human life and the full expression of their creativity, intelligence, and organizing power.
