The article features an essay written by the President of Maharishi University of Enlightenment expressing the great need perceived by leading educators for 'a more holistic approach to education—one that unifies all the fragmented disciplines of traditional learning' and takes into account that 'the spiritual development of students would make their education more complete'.
She describes the approach of Consciousness-Based Education which has been utilized at schools throughout the world. These schools, she writes, 'provide models for how all schools can develop students' total brain potential by giving them the direct experience of Transcendental Consciousness, the unbounded field of pure intelligence—pure spirituality—the non-material basis of everything in the universe.'
As an example of eminent educators who appreciate this perspective, she quotes in the article from a letter she received from the president of a top Ivy League university in the US, who wrote, 'I must say that the distinction you make between what can be accomplished through the intellect alone and what can only be accomplished by transcending the intellect makes excellent sense. Holistic knowledge is certainly what is desired, and our Western tradition tends to focus exclusively on the intellectual and to neglect other important means of reaching wisdom and understanding.'
