In the annual edition of the New York Times Sunday Magazine entitled The Year in Ideas, the campaign to introduce the Transcendental Meditation Programme to college campuses around the world—and to use the technology to create global peace and harmony—was selected as one of the most 'newsworthy ideas of the past 12 months'. 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.

Writer Charles Wilson began the article by observing that the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace intended to raise $7 billion to finance seven 'universities of peace', where students would practise the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM). In addition, the foundation plans to help underwrite 'for-credit peace studies classes' in various colleges and universities to provide students with instruction in TM.

The article noted that American University is slated to offer one of these classes and will research the effects of the programme on 'student grades, IQ's and mental health'.

The article finished by acknowledging the broadest goals of the student campaign—that of bringing together a number of meditators equal to the square root of 1 per cent of the world's population to practise the advanced version of the TM programme—Yogic Flying—and 'thereby bring about the conditions for world peace'.

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.
