Five courses to train Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Programme have been held around the world in recent months, with 50 new graduates from 16 countries recently returning to bring its many benefits—including reduced stress, improved health and brain functioning, increased creativity and clarity of mind, and better relationships—to the people of their nations. In addition, 20 participants from 8 countries are currently in training on two courses in Thailand, which will conclude in April.
Two of the recently-completed Teacher Training Courses (TTCs) were held in the United States, in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, and Antrim, New Hampshire, with 25 participants from the US and Canada.
Other courses were held in MERU, Holland, and Seelisberg, Switzerland. The new graduates of these courses in Europe have now returned to begin teaching Transcendental Meditation in Australia, Belgium, Croatia, Egypt, Finland, Germany, Hamsa (Hungary), India, Israel, Italy, Kenya, New Zealand, Nigeria, United Arab Emirates, and the United Kingdom.
The two Asian TTCs now in progress are being held in Chanthaburi, Thailand, in a beautiful academy built according to Vastu principles of Vedic architecture. Enjoying these courses are participants from China, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Senegal, South Africa, and Uganda. (See also this Global Good News article with many colourful photos, about the previous Teacher Training Course held last year in Chanthaburi.)
When they complete their course, the four participants from Mongolia will return to join the five Mongolian Teachers who completed their training in 2009 and have since been very active teaching the technique and related programmes to many people throughout the country.
Many of the women graduates of the TTCs held in Seelisberg, Maharishi Vedic City, and Chanthaburi will be teaching Transcendental Meditation in their home countries through the Global Mother Divine Organization.*
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and the Global Country of World Peace, said it only takes 'one lamp post to light a whole street', commented the Administrator of the Global Country in the United Kingdom, who recently welcomed back one of the new Teachers to his country. Teachers of Transcendental Meditation are continuing in the long line of Teachers of the ancient Vedic Tradition of India, he said
—' ''whispering infinity''** to the population and gently putting them on the totally effortless path to enlightenment'.
Reflecting on the many countries represented by all the new graduates, he also commented on the beautiful structure of global administration of the Global Country of World Peace that Maharishi established, which supports the expansion of its many programmes in every country, bringing enlightenment and invincibility to the whole world.
* In the Vedic tradition the expression 'Mother Divine' refers to the universal, all-nourishing qualities of nature—bliss, intelligence, creativity, harmony—that always promote life in the direction of peace and progress. These qualities are inherent within all women and can be enlivened through simple technologies of consciousness—the Transcendental Meditation Technique and its advanced programmes. The Global Mother Divine Organization is the ladies' wing of the Global Country of World Peace, currently active in 86 countries and rapidly expanding to include 192 countries of the world.
** Maharishi used this expression to describe the process of teaching Transcendental Meditation, when the teacher gives the student the personal instruction and guidance for experiencing the unbounded field of Transcendental Consciousness.
