The article features Maharishi Secondary School for Girls in Uganda. 'This school is very different from any other school,' says Grant Lusimbo, director of the school. He explains that it is 'because we offer what you call ''Integrated Education''. We teach the Maharishi Transcendental Meditation Technique, which allows the active mind to systematically and gradually settle down, leave thoughts, while remaining inside awake.'
The education offered by his school is, indeed, unique. While education for African girls has not been a priority—with girls leaving school to help in the home, because they are needed for labour, or due to arranged marriage at the average age of 14 1/2—advocates for girls' education emphasize its importance for the female's role in the family. Because girls are the central resource for the family's health and overall wellbeing, their education is very significant, providing them with the knowledge to make better choices for their families and therefore laying a solid foundation for the next generation.
Education for a happy and successful life
Through the Transcendental Meditation Technique, Maharishi Secondary School for Girls nurtures its students from the deepest level. By providing regular experience of Transcendental Consciousness, the only experience which enlivens total brain physiology, the girls naturally grow towards higher states of consciousness, in which the brain functions in a coherent manner at all times. As the orderly functioning of the brain supports memory, creativity, moral reasoning, problem-solving, and decision-making—really everything good about the brain—the education offered by Maharishi Secondary School for Girls provides the basis for its students to enjoy a happy and successful life.
