High School students in Fiji recently learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme, and have commented on how much they are enjoying the programme.
Please also see Part I of this series.
Several weeks ago one of the Transcendental Meditation Teachers at the school asked the students to briefly write about their experience with Transcendental Meditation—'just whatever they felt', said Raja Michael Dillbeck, Raja of Invincible Fiji for the Global Country of World Peace.*
Raja Dillbeck recently presented some of the students' comments. The first, he said, is from a young girl from a simple home nearby, who comes to school every morning barefoot:
'I just want to take this opportunity to thank [the two Transcendental Meditation Teachers working with the school] for teaching me how to meditate. Firstly, I learned more . . . . It gives peace of mind . . . . Lastly, it helps in my everyday work. It keeps me going no matter how hard my task or chore at home, and also in school. Whenever I find hardship in my schoolwork and I meditate, it takes the stress away, so that I can think clearly.'
Another student said: 'It's a very great and unique experience. Since I have started doing meditation I totally feel changed. I could concentrate on my studies . . . [and] it gave me a relaxing feeling. It's not hard, it's something that's interesting.'
'After meditation I feel very fresh and very happy inside myself,' said a third student—adding that 'every time I meditate I feel my mind [is] fresh, very good,' and appreciating the capacity for 'full concentration' in schoolwork after meditation each day.
'I like meditation because it makes my mind relaxed,' another student wrote. 'It makes my Self feel good.'
Raja Dillbeck said that in addition to assessing students' experiences, organizers of the Consciousness-Based Education programme are conducting objective evaluations to see what changes occur in the students through their regular practice of Transcendental Meditation.
In coming days, Global Good News will feature more comments from the students.
