In The Hague, the director of a school is very enthusiastic about introducing this programme in his school. Only a short distance from the Houses of Parliament and embassies, the school will be used for introductory lectures to present the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.

In Utrecht, 35 teachers attended a presentation by Dr Vos, and will learn the Transcendental Meditation Technique next month. A teacher of mathematics at the school is also a Teacher of Transcendental Meditation, and the course will be conducted in a building designed and constructed according to principles of Vedic Architecture, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.

A primary school for children ages 6-12 will be opening in January 2010 in Bilthaven; teachers are already organizing for the school, and word is spreading about it in the area. The principal of the school is well known throughout Holland for the high standard of education in his schools.
