On 5 May 2008 Newsday reported: Film Director David Lynch is bringing Transcendental Meditation to schools to help eliminate stress and violence. 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.

Lynch, who has practised Transcendental Meditation (TM) for 34 years, has created the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace to help promote the meditation practice in schools. Created in 2005, the foundation offers scholarships to students and funding to schools that want to provide programmes in Transcendental Meditation.

Even though the director is a reluctant public speaker, he has been on a lecture tour discussing and promoting the idea of TM in schools with audiences. In a mostly question-and-answer format, Lynch explains the meditation technique and also gives audience members some insight into his work.

Newsday quoted Lynch as saying, 'Schools have tried many, many, many things and nothing on the surface is working. But when a student or a teacher truly transcends and experiences this deepest level of life, modern science's unified field, watch what happens. It transforms the schools. It transforms the kids. It works. Now, more and more people are hearing about this thing that they thought was so weird. Meditation for students? It's too weird. People think it's a religion, it's mumbo-jumbo, it's a cult. It's none of those things. It's a mental technique that works.'

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.
