In Thailand in 1993, a group of Buddhist nuns created an entirely free boarding school to provide a loving, safe home and education to 20 orphaned girls. Today, Dhammajarinee Witthaya School has expanded to 1,000 students, with young girls in pre-school up to to grade 12 teens, and more than 4,000 girls have received education there.
Dhammajarinee Witthaya students repeatedly place first in numerous nationwide and regional competitions including Memory and Mind Map, Business and Science projects, Art, Music, and Storytelling. The school also received the Royal School Recognition Award in 2018.
Foundational to Dhammajarinee becoming a leader in quality education was the introduction of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique to the teachers and students. Almost immediately, the new meditators experience increased motivation, creativity, and academic success. At the same time, stress levels dramatically drop.
