Renowned filmmaker David Lynch, whose foundation is raising funds to teach one million at-risk children the Transcendental Meditation Programme, recently gave press conferences in Moscow, Russia and Kiev, Ukraine, which attracted great publicity and support.

The level of receptivity and excitement in Moscow and Kiev—for the David Lynch Foundation and the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi—was almost unprecedented, reported Dr Robert Roth, National Director of Expansion for the Global Country of World Peace in the United States, on 21 April 2009.

Immediately following his foundation's benefit concert, 'Change Begins Within', on 4 April 2009 in New York, David Lynch traveled to Moscow for an exhibition of his photography and paintings. 'Dr Lynch is extremely popular and respected in Eastern European countries,' commented Dr Roth, 'and his exhibitions were widely attended.'

After the art exhibition, Dr Lynch and Dr Roth spent a week touring and giving press conferences in Moscow and Kiev. Displaying photos of the press conferences, Dr Roth commented on how crowded each of the rooms were with people eager to hear Dr Lynch's message. 'You can see the looks of wonder on all of the young people's faces,' he pointed out. While some young people and students asked about Dr Lynch's filmmaking, the majority of questions concerned his experience with Transcendental Meditation, as well as higher states of consciousness, the connection between TM and the creative process, and the goals of the David Lynch Foundation.

In Kiev, David Lynch appeared on the front page of all major newspapers and on many popular television shows in the days following the press conferences. One TV show, reported Dr Roth, during which Dr Lynch answered questions on Transcendental Meditation, was viewed by 50 million people. Dr Lynch drew attention from many celebrities in Ukraine, including one of the country's most famous actresses, who interviewed him on a morning talk show.

David Lynch also held a book signing in Ukraine for his book 'Catching the Big Fish', which has been translated into the Russian language. Dr Roth reported that all 300 books at the signing were sold very quickly.

'The response we saw in Moscow and Kiev was another example of collective consciousness rising in the world, as a result of the Maharishi Vedic Pandits in India and the US, as well as the Invincible America Assembly of Yogic Flyers,' noted Dr Roth. 'In all the press conferences we attended in Eastern Europe,' he continued 'there were never any misguided questions or doubts concerning Transcendental Meditation or Maharishi's knowledge.' He went on to report that Global Country of World Peace leaders in Russia and Ukraine are planning for expansion of Consciousness-Based Education and Maharishi's other programmes in their countries, keeping the momentum strong from the recent wave of publicity.
