The Album features the tour earlier this year of Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management, of schools in South Africa where students and teachers are enjoying the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education, including the Transcendental Meditation programme.

In Durban, the principal of a primary school commented on positive changes in his school since the programme began, highlighting two main themes: 'The academic performance has gone up, and the behavioural problems have gone down.'

The principal described the reaction of another recent visitor to the school: Entering a classroom, and not knowing the students practised Transcendental Meditation, the educator asked, 'Why is it so peaceful in here?' He felt the atmosphere of deep silence permeating the classroom, Dr Morris said, but didn't know what was causing it.

One of the characteristics all the children notice is that 'they're much friendlier and kinder to each other', Dr Morris said. He would 'never forget the delight of being in the classroom with those children'.
