Nepal Television Show—how Consciousness-Based education can address the missing element in today’s educational systems
On 28.August.2020, MinRaj Adhikari, Director of Consciousness-Based education for Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation (NMVF), gave a 20 minute presentation explaining how Consciousness-Based education can improve any system of education. Minraj said, “In today’s world, there is no educational system that can produce wise, mature, and fulfilled citizens or a peaceful world. Students are dissatisfied, teachers are discouraged, and the public is not happy with the results. Hundreds of published reports over the past century—dozens in the last few years—have identified the failures of education but have not provided the means to assure its success. Clearly, if the knowledge available in this field is responsible for its outcomes, more profound knowledge is needed. In contrast, Consciousness-Based education focuses on the most important element of the learning process—the student. The students’ own inner intelligence and creativity is awakened twice a day through the daily practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique. In addition, the standard subjects are studied in light of the knowledge of the full development of consciousness and related to the students’ own life. The student is always connecting the parts of knowledge to the whole—so the students feel at home with every discipline thereby making the educational experience less stressful and more enjoyable.”

Global Family Farms Mission and Vision—helping sustain Maharishi Vedic Pandit Program
Global Family Farms is a company founded by Drs. John and Susel Fagan, MIU Faculty, in cooperation with Nepal Maharishi Foundations, dedicated to creating economic opportunities for rural farmers through ethical, organic agriculture. Creating jobs for farmers allows them to stay home in the villages instead of being forced to work abroad. This helps keep families together and preserves local farming tradition while creating a supply of high-quality organic herbs spices and super foods for conscious consumers. Global Family Farms goes beyond fair trade. Profits shared with our partner farmers will help improve access to education, provide technical training to community groups, and ensure food security and purity. In addition, Global Family Farms provides education on organic farming and financial management as well as the Transcendental Meditation program to our partner farmers—thereby creating coherence and harmony locally and nationally.
Global Family Farms profits, plus a small contribution from each sale, will go to the Nepal Maharishi Foundation for Vedic Culture to preserve and strengthen Nepal’s Pandit schools (Gurukuls).
