Dhammajarinee Witthaya school is a very special school—it is the first and only educational institution in Thailand where poor or orphaned girls can get free education from kindergarten to grade 12.

The difficult, troubled past of the students was one of the main reasons for including Transcendental Meditation in the daily routine, alongside modern academic subjects and basic Buddhist teachings.

Kru Maew, a teacher at the Dhammajarinee Witthaya boarding school, says: ''Our school in the first school in Thailand that incorporates the Transcendental Meditation technique to culture the students' ethical values. The students in this school learn TM at the beginning of the semester when the new students arrive.''
