On 11 November 2005 The UCSD Guardian Online reported: Acclaimed filmmaker David Lynch, Dr John Hagelin, and Dr Fred Travis spoke at the Price Center at the University of California-San Diego about the transformative effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme. Lynch also discussed his newly created David Lynch Foundation to help support students who would like to learn the technique. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of education.

David Lynch told students, 'Transcendental Meditation is a mental technique that allows any human being to dive within subtler levels of mind and intellect and transcend, experiencing pure consciousness. You grow in bliss, intelligence, and love.' He painted a picture of the results, saying that if a girl started to meditate, within two years of regular practice she would be radiating beauty and love.

Reporter Oakley Anderson-Moore observed, 'There is something sort of sweet (albeit strange) about Lynch's quest to get students to increase academic achievement and relieve stress, depression, and learning disorders through Maharishi's (the founder of Transcendental Meditation) techniques. This same sweetness and strangeness is a quality present in Lynch's films as well.'

Anderson-Moore concluded by noting that many of the students attending the lecture left with an interest in learning the meditative practice.

Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
