On 20 August 2005 Global Good News reported:
The newly formed organization with the goal of raising seven billion dollars in order to provide the Transcendental Meditation Programme to schools and students across America - The David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace - continues to garner media attention. The Kansas City Star, the Boston Globe, and the Fort Wayne News Sentinal are the latest major newspapers to run Peter Larsen's Orange County Register story on the benefits of TM.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of education.
The article includes interviews with students who practise the meditation technique, as well as with the internationally acclaimed film director. Lynch told the reporter, 'The proof is in the pudding. When you see students who have experienced consciousness-based education, you...say, ''I can't believe what I'm seeing!'' '
Larsen also spoke with Steven Yellin, a spokesman for the national TM organization, who noted that currently 40 schools are waiting for funds in order to provide TM to their students. Yellin said that as the foundation builds an endowment, these schools will be first to receive the $2,500 per person training costs.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
