In the words of Maharishi Ji, 'the roots of modern day problems are the incomplete growth of human brain because of incomplete, fragmented education. The education is incomplete when the student is not able to utilize or develop the creative brain potential, thereby allowing imbalances to creep in.
‘The dissatisfaction created by the failure is nothing but an outcome of cumulative stress and strain due to gross violation of the laws of Nature. Thereby, it is essential to take the knowledge through education to pure consciousness level, where all the laws of Nature are aligned. This facilitates every student to adhere to the Laws of Nature and to realise an ideal and successful environment’.
To fulfill this aim, Maharishi Vidya Mandir schools are establishing the value of pure consciousness in all the students across the country, thereby not only helping the students to acquire conventional knowledge for gaining professional skills but also for implementing their total knowledge of natural law in personal life. This allows a student to lead a stress-free and strain free life to accomplish their desires without any difficulty. The aim is to allow each generation to enjoy fruits of all knowledge and with its own accomplished life can enliven the whole world consciousness and play again the role of Jagat Guru.
