Ninety-six million people in Brazil viewed the live television broadcast of renowned filmmaker Dr David Lynch's presentation on the Transcendental Meditation Programme last August. The broadcast took place during the tour of Latin America of Dr Lynch and singer-songwriter Donovan.
'It was such a remarkable visit,' Raja Jose Luis Alvarez, Raja (Administrator) of Latin America for the Global Country of World Peace, said recently. 'On that basis we have established a joint partnership with governments in various states to start Consciousness-Based Education in the schools, such that the government supports the school—a Maharishi School—and its maintenance.
'The David Lynch Foundation has been supporting us every step of the way in developing the programme of Consciousness-Based Education in the schools, and this visit had a major impact on Brazil,' Raja Luis said, in his recent summary of education achievements in 2008.
There will be two to three thousand students in each Maharishi School on a permanent basis as a way to reduce violence* in Latin America.
There are currently 61,000 students practising Transcendental Meditation; 14,000 practising Yogic Flying; as well as 2,000 Teachers.
Universities in two countries that had introduced Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, recently decided to change their curriculum from introducing this programme to becoming a full Consciousness-Based Education university.
