The Transcendental Meditation Programme in Greece serves the country's 11 million people through offering programmes developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi—to promote reduced stress and better health; improved brain functioning, academic achievement, and business success; decreased crime and increased social coherence and harmony; among many other benefits.
Half the population lives in the area of metropolitan Athens, explained an administrator of the Transcendental Meditation organization recently. There are two Transcendental Meditation centres in this area, with two full-time and two part-time teachers active in the country.
The number of people learning the technique in Greece increased by almost 60% in the past year, he said.
Last November the first national Maharishi Yagya* performance was accomplished with the aim of bringing good fortune to the country. Soon after the Yagya, an opportunity arose to hold a large course in Thessaloniki, the second largest city in Greece, during which many people learned Transcendental Meditation.
