The number of people learning Transcendental Meditation in Japan has increased by 50 per cent in the last few months.
This news was reported recently by Wada Takao Sensei, a teacher of Transcendental Meditation and the advanced TM-Sidhi programme in Japan. Wada-sensei is also president of Maharishi Institute of Total Education. He shared achievements of the institute and of the Transcendental Meditation centres around the country.
Wada-sensei attributes the rising numbers of people learning Transcendental Meditation to the recent launch of a new website modeled after the United States' www.TM.org website. The Japanese site also has a page on Facebook® and a blog.
This increased exposure has also brought new developments in efficient communication for the organization. To meet the rising demand, a national call centre is being established. This call centre will help follow up with interested people who find Transcendental Meditation through the Internet.
For those who are already practising the meditation technique, a weekly e-newsletter and a monthly magazine go out to around 3,500 subscribers. The periodicals contain upcoming advanced course information and the latest knowledge brought out by experts in the application of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Vedic Science in many fields—including agriculture, education, architecture, rehabilitation, health care, etc.
Established meditators in Japan can also take advantage of a twice-daily group Transcendental Meditation practice offered in 30 locations across the country. These locations also offer videos with excerpts from Maharishi's press conference series, originally broadcast 2002-2007.
With these developments, teachers of Transcendental Meditation in Japan feel confident that they can reach more people who want meditation in their lives. Wada-sensei and other teachers also feel that these programmes and periodicals will encourage meditators to gain the full benefits of Transcendental Meditation by practising regularly.
