A new national centre for the Transcendental Meditation Programme in Lithuania has been established in the capital city of Vilnius, renowned as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Interest in Transcendental Meditation has been growing rapidly in the country in the last three years.

Lithuania, a nation on the Baltic sea with a population of 3.25 million, is known as very beautiful country of many lakes and forests, which residents say creates a feeling of freshness and spaciousness, especially in the summer. Eighty per cent of the population are ethnic Lithuanians who speak Lithuanian, which is the official language of the country.

A Transcendental Meditation teacher from another country who speaks Lithuanian visits regularly and holds courses for the public to learn the technique.

In 2010 a website about Transcendental Meditation was created in the Lithuanian language, offering a range of information and knowledge, including scientific research studies documenting the benefits of the technique in different areas of society. The website also provides a way to request information on upcoming courses to learn Transcendental Meditation.

People who already practise Transcendental Meditation have been taking increasing advantage of advanced programmes, including courses in advanced techniques of Transcendental Meditation, as well as an online course in the Maharishi Jyotish (Vedic astrology) programme.

A group of Transcendental Meditation practitioners has been meeting for monthly group meditations at the centre. Scientific research has found that groups practising Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programmes together create an effect of coherence in the whole environment. The Transcendental Meditation centre is not far from the palace of the president of the country, and the meditators feel inspired to continue create a harmonizing influence in the collective consciousness of Vilnius and the whole country.

There are also people in the country who learned the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme some years ago and have continued to practise.

One meditator plans to enrol in the Transcendental Meditation teacher training course and become qualified as a teacher of the technique, so that Lithuania will soon have its own permanent teacher.

'So many different people are interested in Transcendental Meditation, from so many different professions,' said an administrator of the programme in Lithuania, 'but the same desire unites all these people—they want to make their beautiful country perfect.'
