The article features an in-depth discussion of the goals of higher education by Craig Pearson, Ph.D., Executive Vice President of Maharishi University of Management. He writes:
'Forty years ago, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi founded a university with a remarkably broad focus. He saw the purpose of higher education as more than vocational training—more, even, than the lofty goals of the liberal arts. Higher education should be for higher consciousness—education should be for enlightenment.
'At Maharishi University of Management, we honor desires on both ends of the spectrum. Students can major in liberal arts areas (e.g., literature and writing, art, Maharishi Vedic Science) or practical training fields (business, computer science, media and communications). Whatever their major, they will gain knowledge and skills comparable to what students elsewhere gain.
'But students gain far more than this. They gain substantial growth toward enlightenment.'
The article continues, considering several important aspects of the Consciousness-Based system of education at MUM, including the Transcendental Meditation Technique and extensive scientific research documenting the development of consciousness, integrated brain functioning, and wide range of educational benefits that result from the practice.
'These studies, and many more, show us what growth of full potential—enlightenment—looks like,' Dr Pearson concludes. 'Growth of enlightenment can be measured objectively, and the scientific research documenting this growth is arguably the most exciting research being conducted in our time.'
