Speaking 8 August 2008 on Maharishi Global Family Chat, Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of Invincible Great Britain for the Global Country of World Peace, reported that the Transcendental Meditation Technique has gained widespread media coverage in Great Britain as a result of recent breakthrough research on its benefits for heart disease.
In Part I of this article, Raja Warburton introduced the research of Dr James Anderson of University of Kentucky, which revealed a definitive link between the Transcendental Meditation Technique and lowering of blood pressure. Afterwards, he read from an uplifting article from Great Britain's East Anglian Daily Times, which discussed Dr Anderson's research, as well as background information and current events related to Transcendental Meditation.
Other press coverage, continued Raja Warburton, included a beautiful article in The Guardian, a national newspaper, titled 'The pleasure of life grows'. This article basically consisted of a word-for-word interview with filmmaker David Lynch Foundation, including his testimony to the benefits of Transcendental Meditation in his own life, as well as its profound benefits in the field of education. 'This article has resulted in many calls to the newspaper's national inquiry line, from people wanting to learn more about TM and the introductory lectures,' reported Raja Warburton.
In addition to newspaper articles, the recent research inspired a radio interview with Dr Richard Johnson, National Director for the Global Country of World Peace in Great Britain, on Radio Essex. In the interview, titled 'Essex man builds alternative community in Suffolk', Dr Johnson spoke of his motivations for beginning practice of Transcendental Meditation, and his mission to help create the Maharishi Peace Colony* in Suffolk. The radio report also featured interviews from various Yogic Flyers practising together in the Suffolk Peace Colony.
Raja Warburton went on to read an excerpt from the Radio Essex programme:
'Richard Johnson took up TM to combat stress, and now, he has built a whole community in Suffolk for like-minded people. Richard says, "It's not a faith or a religion, but is intended as a practice or technique to bring out the full potential of the individual." Richard said, "I learned TM while training as a hospital manager at the Ipswitch Hospital. Working in the health service was very demanding, and it became clear to me early on in my training that I needed a way of dealing with the stress of the job."'
In the interview, Richard went on to describe his experiences with Transcendental Meditation, his decision to become a TM Teacher, and his regrets at not having learned the technique earlier in life. 'This was a very positive radio report,' commented Raja Warburton, in conclusion.
*Peace Colony: A community based on Vedic principles of life and living, with a Maharishi Peace Palace, a Maharishi Ayur-Veda Health Center, a Maharishi School, etc.
