Throughout his more than fifty years of teaching the Transcendental Meditation technique, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi dedicated much of his time and efforts on promoting the understanding that the development of the consciousness of the student is an essential part of achieving the highest ideals of education. Today thousands of schools throughout the world, based on hundreds of scientific studies showing the wide range of benefits that TM practice provides to students, have incorporated ''the Quiet Time/TM program'' into school curriculum.

In the video below, Maharishi speaks about the vital importance of developing the knower at a national meeting of the American Association of Higher Education in a lecture that took place in Houston, Texas, in March 1973.

Maharishi: ''There are two sides to knowledge: the object of knowledge and the subject of knowledge, the knower. What present education provides is the knowledge of the object. What it misses is the knowledge of the subject, the knowledge of the knower.

''The stream of knowledge has two banks: on one side the object, on one side the knower. With these two points of reference, the knower and the object, the first point of reference is the knower. Very important because we know knowledge is as the knower is. When the mind is dull, when the knower is sleepy, the knowledge is different than what it is when one is wide awake, fresh in the morning. The perception is different, the understanding is different, the emotions are different.''
