Up Cambodia: Book about Maharishi Vedic University celebrates decades of Consciousness-Based Education Slideshow

17 August 2013

A book about education in Cambodia, from the time of independence in 1953 up to present day, was published recently. Written by the founding rectors of Maharishi Vedic University in Cambodia, it looks closely at the achievements of that university, especially in the post-Khmer Rouge era, a time of economic and political uncertainty.

The book, Maharishi Vedic University in Cambodia: Educational Reconstruction and Social Renewal, was written by Dr Lee Fergusson and Dr Anna Bonshek. It offers an in-depth look at the university's application of the Consciousness-Based system of education founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, including practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique.

Maharishi Vedic University has seen thousands of students graduate since it was established in 1991 and enrolled its first group of 557 students in 1993.

Virtually all of the students were new to Consciousness-Based Education. The goal of this educational approach is to enliven students' full creative potential. It includes the study and direct experience of the field of consciousness through Transcendental Meditation. Scientific research on Transcendental Meditation in education has found that it reduces stress, promotes integrated brain functioning, increases intelligence, and improves academic performance—among many other benefits for mental, physical, and social health and well-being.
