What the students see as valuable from practising Transcendental Meditation, is expressed by M.J., a senior who says, 'When I meditate I feel happier than before. I feel more energetic and improved in my thinking about my life. When I meditate my mind becomes settled and I feel confident in my work. I find that there is more clarity in my mind and I am able to solve any problem, and I am able to socialize with other students due to greater happiness in my life.'
Grant and Barbrah Lusimbo, the directors of Maharishi Secondary School for Girls have said: 'Research shows that in Consciousness-Based Education there is less absenteeism and fewer drop outs. Girls who remain in school grow naturally in the ability to focus, learn more, understand issues of health, and set strong life priorities. They are prepared for a fuller life and for raising healthy families.
