Over the last nine years a large number of Buddhist monks in Asia have been learning the Transcendental Meditation Programme.

The project is helmed by Reverend Koji Oshima, a Buddhist monk from Japan who has made it his mission to bring the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to Buddhist communities around Asia.

To date, 4,000 monks around Asia, with a high concentration in Thailand and Sri Lanka, have learned Transcendental Meditation and are meditating in large groups regularly.

A recent report from Japan highlighted the important role the country has played in the project's continuing success, not only through Dr Oshima's leadership, but through the generous support of many Japanese people.

Some of the Buddhist monks involved in the project in Thailand are getting ready to build their first Vastu Buddhist temple. The temple is designed according to the life-supporting principles of Vedic architecture, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, and is also being built with support from Japan.
