Featured is an article in the Indian Weekender, published in New Zealand, reporting on a new paradigm in education known as Consciousness-Based Education, which has been established in over 200 schools in India as well as in schools in countries throughout the world.

Consciousness-Based Education is 'a legacy of Vedic scholar Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who actively promoted education for enlightenment—full inner development of each individual,' the Indian Weekender explains.

The curriculum includes not only the traditional academic disciplines—science, social studies, language, arts, mathematics—but adds an element that has been missing in education: development of consciousness, which forms the very basis of the learning process, and which is provided through the Transcendental Meditation Technique.

Students and staff at Consciousness-Based schools practise the Transcendental Meditation Technique for about 15-20 minutes at the beginning and end of their school day. The Indian Weekender reports that 'the students gain a natural orderliness and coherence; they become more receptive to knowledge; they exhibit greater alertness; and they radiate bliss and friendliness to their classmates and their teachers.'
