TM soldiers board planeTranscendental Meditation

TM may just be about to become a household word.  An amazing announcement was made at Maharishi University of Management a few days ago.  A major South American country now has 10,000 meditating, and 3,500 practising TM-Sidhis in the military academies.

This is Ecuador, where the Navy and Air Force have just decided to take up the programme. This will involve a total of 120,000 military personnel. 

This scenario was played out with slightly lower numbers in Mozambique in the early ’90s. The results were the ending of a long guerrilla conflict, unprecedented economic growth and a miracle election in South Africa in 1994.

Other countries are also coming on board. The president of Columbia, Juan Manuel Santos is a keen practitioner of Transcendental Meditation. So is Dilma Rousseff, president of Brazil.

 UPDATE August 2016:2016-july-good-news-067

UPDATES as of July 2014: Columbia now has 3000 yogic flyers and all prisons in the country are to take up TM.

Venezuela has 600 yogic flyers.

 Mexico now has 16 thousand yogic flyers in Oxaca.

Peru has 30 thousand doing TM-many or most of whom are also yogic flyers. GDP has risen 6%.

Another astonishing piece of news is that Brazil has approved the adoption of  Consciousness Based Education (CBE) in no less than 48,000 schools! This means that potentially,  45 million children will be learning Transcendental Meditation! This decision has been taken after years of investigation into the successes of CBE in schools in many other countries, including the UK.


FORTY FIVE MILLION! These numbers are almost unthinkable.


According to my sources, funds have been made available for the training of at least one TM teacher in every school.
So much for the future. What about right now?


Well, last year, Mehmet Oz, M.D., host of the Emmy Award-winning The Dr. Oz Show, decided to help his staff cope with on-the-job stress by offering them the chance to learn the Transcendental Meditation® technique. A year later, Dr. Oz and his team say the stress-management tool is delivering long-lasting benefits.

The first thing I noticed was a change in the tone and the texture of the dialogue—away from dwelling on problems towards a much more thoughtful, insightful, clever way of solving problems,” says Dr. Oz. He is the vice chairman of the department of surgery at Columbia University, and the founder of the Complementary Medicine Program at New York Presbyterian Hospital. “Instead of highlighting the issues that were separating us, my team was deriving bliss and joy from finding solutions.
