At the graduation of the recent Consciousness-Based Education Leadership Training Course in the Netherlands, participants and teachers spoke about the benefits of the unique system, especially its possibility to help create coherent and peaceful nations.
When distinguished guest Dr Girish Varma, Chairman of the 148 Maharishi Vidya Mandir Schools Group in India, addressed the course graduation at Maharishi European Research University (MERU), he spoke about the benefits that Consciousness-Based Education has for its students.
Consciousness-Based Education develops the consciousness of students, said Dr Varma. 'We also know that development of consciousness brings all-around success.'
The Maharishi Vidya Mandir schools that Dr Varma oversees all utilize Consciousness-Based Education. The schools are in 16 different states in India and have over 100,000 students and 6,000 teachers and administrative staff.
What is the result of utilizing this educational system?
Dr Varma explained that his students consistently receive the highest awards on city, state, national, and international levels. They excel in tests, competitions, and exhibitions.
'When I ask my students what they have done to achieve this . . . they always say, 'Nothing special.' It is a routine for them that leads to success.'
Two years ago, the team selected to represent India in an international science competition was made up entirely of students from Consciousness-Based Education schools. The students travelled to Australia, the United Kingdom, and the United States to compete for India.
One young girl from the team explained her success very easily.
She said that she had been practising Transcendental Meditation for ten years and added that her vision has expanded manyfold compared to other students in her age group. She explained that one Sunday after meditation, the idea for her science model just came into her mind. She made it and won an international award for her work.
'So that is the creativity that unfolds in these students. This is a natural result with most of the students who are immensely benefitting from Consciousness-Based Education,' Dr Varma concluded.
