The academic community in Greece is becoming increasingly receptive to the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, drawn by scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation Programme, as well as continuing scholarly research exploring parallels between Maharishi's Vedic Science and the ancient wisdom of the Greeks.
The latest developments in this area include an upcoming lecture at the University of Athens and a soon-to-be published book comparing Vedic knowledge to ancient Greek philosophy.
Dr Demetrios Kanellakos has recently been invited to the University of Athens to present scientific research on the benefits of Transcendental Meditation, said Raja Ior Guglielmi, Raja of Invincible Greece for the Global Country of World Peace, speaking on Maharishi Global Family Chat.'
Earlier in 2009 at the University of Athens, training sessions were given by Dr John Hagelin,** renowned quantum physicist, and Dr Robert Schneider, a leading authority on applying the approaches of Maharishi's Vedic Health Care to cardiovascular disease. These talks inspired faculty and students to the extent that about 30 professors have learnt Transcendental Meditation. Raja Ior expects that Dr Kanellakos's lecture will inspire many more in the university community to learn the technique.
A new book by Kenneth Chandler, PhD, compares the Vedic wisdom uncovered by Maharishi to the ancient Greek philosophy of Plato. Dr Chandler, a professor at Maharishi University of Management, likens Transcendental Meditation to techniques for transcending which are described by Plato in his works. 'This book, soon to be published in both English and Greek languages, will make Transcendental Meditation and all of Maharishi's programmes more approachable for Greeks,' Raja Ior commented.
'These two avenues—the university and the upcoming book by Dr Chandler—we expect will lead to great expansion of the Global Country of World Peace for the benefit of the whole nation,' he concluded.
* Raja Ior's report was featured on the 23 December 2009 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
** World renowned quantum physicist Dr John Hagelin is President of the David Lynch Foundation; Executive Director of the International Center for Invincible Defense and the Center for Leadership Performance, both based in New York City; Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at Maharishi University of Management; and Raja (Administrator) of Invincible America.
