Over 100,000 primary and secondary school students in India are enjoying the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education. Dr. Girish Chandra Varma, Director-General of the Maharishi Global Capital of World Peace at the Brahmasthan of India and Chairman of the Maharishi Vidya Mandir Schools Group, oversees the largest primary and secondary educational organization in India with 151 schools in 17 states. All students practice the Transcendental Meditation technique and many practice the TM-Sidhi program including Yogic Flying.

During the past 18 months, flying halls at 40 locations have been built for students, teachers, and parents. The organization continues its rapid expansion through a franchise system that allows growth without large upfront capital costs and staffing challenges.

Dr. Varma is not only overseeing Consciousness-Based educational institutions in India but is in charge of supervising the training of 100,000 Vedic Pandits according to the guidelines of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to nourish and enliven life everywhere for peace and prosperity.

A large number of colleges and universities have also incorporated Consciousness-Based Education into their curricula. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Vedic University has 28,000 students on four campuses and in 220 associate institutions. The school has two tracks: Management and Computer Science and Maharishi Vedic Science, which includes 6,000 Vedic Pandits.

Maharishi University of Management and Technology in Chhattisgarh is the newest university with a main campus in Bilaspur and distance education centers in Raipur, Raigarh and Durg. All 4,800 students study Maharishi Vedic Science as part of the curriculum and practice the Transcendental Meditation technique.

Maharishi Institute of Management offers undergraduate and graduate programs in business to 950 students at six locations: Bangalore, Chennai, Noida, Bhopal, Hyderabad and Indore.

Maharishi Colleges in Madhya Pradesh with six branches and 2,000 students primarily offers degrees in education and physical education.
