Richard Beall, Ph.D., Head of Maharishi School in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, continues his presentation about how the school augments its standard curriculum with Vedic knowledge and technologies that help students excel in every aspect of their educational experience:
Vedic knowledge takes a variety of forms at Maharishi School, Dr. Beall writes.
The first example is the experience and study of the development of consciousness as a curriculum. We explain the mechanics of the Transcendental Meditation technique and its potential to develop higher states of consciousness. Our children practice the TM technique twice a day to develop their consciousness, which increases their learning ability.
Second, students learn universal principles of natural law expressed in all of their subjects—and in themselves—cultivating a habit of thinking vertically, of seeing deeper principles embedded in traditional knowledge.
Third, we teach units from specific disciplines of Vedic knowledge that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi restored to vitality in his decades of research and teaching. These include:
∙ Maharishi Ayurveda, a comprehensive system of natural healthcare,
∙ Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, architectural design and building in accord with natural law,
∙ Sanskrit, the ''language of nature'' that creates coherence in consciousness when recited orally.
Fourth, students learn Vedic expressions or proverbs, which illuminate deeper wisdom and offer life insights—for example: Vasudhaiva kutumbakam, ''The world is my family.''
