Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Maharishi Speaks to Students and Educators

Main Points from
Maharishi's Lecture of 4 May 1974
Mürren, Switzerland

‘Knowledge is different in different states of consciousness. From the Science of Creative Intelligence we know that there are seven states of consciousness. The ideal of education is to raise the student’s consciousness to the seventh state of consciousness, where knowledge is complete, and let him live life from that highest level.

‘Experience during the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique shows that the fourth state of consciousness is non-changing, unbounded pure intelligence, pure existence. As the fourth state of consciousness rises to the fifth, one begins to maintain that unbounded awareness during activity.

‘All activity, thought, and perception take place through localized boundaries. If the awareness is unbounded, then the flow of awareness through specific channels brings greater joy of experience; one lives unboundedness  through every perception.

‘The Science of Creative Intelligence develops higher states of consciousness in a systematic, scientific manner.

‘Education should inspire everyone to develop higher states of consciousness and live spontaneously in accordance with all the Laws of Nature.’

—Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
