The article features an in-depth analysis of the concept of sustainability, including perspectives of world leaders, as well as those of students and faculty in the Sustainable Living department at Maharishi University of Management—where 'personal sustainability' is at the core of education for everyone, whether majoring in that field or any other discipline.
The university's website elucidates its broad vision, explaining that 'sustainability is about creating a thriving world in which we lead rich, productive, and fulfilling lives—without depleting the environment or ourselves.'
The article quotes Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of Maharishi University of Management, explaining how Consciousness-Based Education at MUM and other institutions of learning develops the knower, expanding the 'container of knowledge' through the Transcendental Meditation Technique.
This, faculty explain, develops students' connection with the field of transcendental consciousness at the source of their thinking, which is the field of total Natural Law at the basis of the entire universe. This direct experience cultivates a perspective of 'global citizenship' in students, who naturally desire to use their ever-expanding capabilities to create life-supporting effects for their world.
