Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment hosted a delegation from the eastern European nation of Ukraine in April.

The group of six Ukrainians spent the morning and afternoon touring classrooms in the elementary, middle and high schools. They shared stories about their native country and, on at least one occasion, treated the students to classical Ukrainian folk songs.

The students, for their part, described the instruction they receive in the form of “project-based learning,” and had a chance to ask the delegation for its thoughts on the current political crisis surrounding Russia’s annexation of Crimea, part of Ukraine. . .

In Barbara Hays’s middle school math class, the school’s international character was on full display. Students were asked to stand if they or their parents were from another country, and more than half of the students rose to their feet. Members of the delegation said they were greatly impressed with the diversity they saw in the school.

Richard Beall, head of Maharishi School, asked the members of the delegation what it meant to be Ukrainian. . . . Prodan, one of three TM teachers in the group of Ukrainians, said Ukraine is, in one sense, a place inside a border, but in another important sense it is a land of unlimited potential.

The visit to Maharishi School concluded a week of activities in Jefferson County, Iowa, for the delegation.

All of the Ukrainians in the delegation practice TM and hope the practice becomes widespread in their own country. Several of them commented on how much they liked Maharishi Vedic City in particular because of the way the city was laid out according to Vedic principles and that the buildings were built according to Maharishi Vastu architectural designs.

Prodan said Vedic City was very impressive and a model for future cities. When he is asked to describe Vedic City to his friends in Ukraine, he tells them it is a “city without problems.” He wants as many Ukrainians as possible to visit the city, and he hopes a similar town will be built in Ukraine.
