Many of the major successes of the Transcendental Meditation organization and related programmes in Japan involve education and self-development.
Ioka Haruhiko Sensei, president of Maharishi Global Trading for World Peace and manager of Japan's Transcendental Meditation National Academy, highlighted several developments in the last year.
Global Trading for World Peace offered several knowledge courses, including a physician training course in Maharishi Ayurveda health care. Ioka-sensei remarked that 20 physicians have completed all four phases of the first training course this year and 10 more will complete the second training in September. A third course will begin in the fall.
The popularity of this course is no surprise, given the rising interest in Ayurveda in Japan.
'The Maharishi Ayurveda salon has been opened at our National Academy. There are special treatments being offered to relieve stress, tension, and pain. . . . The clinic is fully booked, even in its first months of operation,' commented a Transcendental Meditation teacher.
He added, 'There is a growing interest in Japan for Ayurveda. . . . Our first Ayurvedic physician in Japan and our national health director has operated a Maharishi Ayurveda clinic in Tokyo for 20 years. He publishes several articles on Ayurveda every month in magazines in Japan, and has published many books explaining Maharishi Ayurveda.'
In addition to Ayurveda courses, Maharishi Vastu architecture training courses have been offered. Maharishi Global Trading for World Peace offered phase one of the training for over 100 people in Japan.
The organization has also published a new edition of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's book, Science of Being and Art of Living, and the Japanese version of Catching the Big Fish: Meditation, Consciousness, and Creativity, written by award-winning film director David Lynch.
In other education-related news, a school in Japan has adopted Transcendental Meditation as part of its academic routine.
'Approximately 200 teachers at a school in southern Japan meditate together twice a day, every day,' said a teacher of Transcendental Meditation. Similar groups in other countries sometimes also choose to learn the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme, including Yogic Flying. Large groups practising these advanced meditation technologies together have been shown through scientific research to create an influence of coherence and peace for the whole nation.
Japan does not yet have a large permanent group of Yogic Flyers, but there has been nationwide interest in the advanced programme, with eight Yogic Flying courses held in the past year alone.
