Richard Beall, Ph.D., Head of Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, describes techniques from the Vedic tradition of knowledge that make his school unique and so successful in developing the consciousness, learning ability, and achievements of students. He begins by asking:
What is Vedic knowledge and how do we see it expressed at Maharishi School?
The minute students arrive at Maharishi School each morning, the uniqueness of the school becomes evident. The Vedic technologies they practice yield the kind of practical results that schools across the country and around the world hope to achieve.
Rather than reporting to their classrooms, our students proceed up the stairs to their meditation rooms—the Halls of Bliss (one for boys, one for girls)—where they do Yoga postures, pranayam (a breathing technique that settles mind and body), and the Transcendental Meditation technique.
In the classroom, they utilize a kind of feedback loop for self-awareness from an ancient science of natural health care and prevention, by placing their fingers around their wrists and taking their pulse to monitor their physiological balance.
In a science class, students link their study of genetics to universal principles—the same principles they may find in their literature or math class.
After school, athletes will do a set of Yoga postures to loosen up for a soccer game.
What do all these techniques have in common? They are tools that help students connect with their own inner Self and systematically develop their consciousness, day after day. At Maharishi School, inner development is not left to chance.
