The past three months have brought an abundance of media coverage on the Transcendental Meditation Programme and Maharishi's Vedic programmes in the fields of health, culture, architecture, and education.
In the area of health, The American Journal of Cardiology reported in its May 2, 2005 issue that Transcendental Meditation reduces death rates by 23 per cent and also extends life span. The study also showed how practitioners of Transcendental Meditation displayed 30 per cent reduction in the rate of death from cardiovascular disease, and 49 per cent reduction in the rate of death from cancer. Articles featuring this research were published in such periodicals and news web sites as International Herald Tribune, Reuters, Forbes, WebMD, The Guardian, HoustonChronicle.com, I-Newswire.com, The Boston Globe, The Christian Post, Deccan Herald, The Des Moines Register, irishhealth.com, and India Monitor.
Maharishi's Consciousness-Based Education also received wide coverage. The news of Maharishi University of Management's new Brain Integration Report Card was an especially popular story, featured along with research demonstrating the effects of Transcendental Meditation for developing total brain functioning. Articles were featured in The Tucson Citizen, Webindia, Money Plans, Keralanext, and New Kerala.com, Newz.in.
An exciting development in the field of architecture has been Maharishi's call to reconstruct America according to Maharishi Vedic Architecture. On 4 July, 2005, Dr John Hagelin, President of the US Peace Government, announced that top architects, developers, and city planners throughout America are being mobilized to rebuild all residential housing, commercial offices, and government buildings—as well as cities and towns—according to Maharishi Vedic Architecture. The Washington Post printed two stories on Maharishi Vedic Architecture, one of them featuring Tower II. This planned 200,000 square-foot office complex will be developed by Jeffrey Abramson and will meet the standards of Maharishi Vedic Architecture.
Maharishi Vedic City, the first city built entirely according to Maharishi Vedic Architecture, was featured in the midwest issue AAALiving. This magazine highlights wonderful places to visit and is sent to all members of AAA, the American Automobile Association. The article entitled, 'Iowa Shangri-la', included information on Maharishi Vedic Architecture, Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture, the Vedic Observatory, and The Raj—America's Premiere Ayurveda Health Spa.
The world is awakening to the necessity and practicality of Transcendental Meditation and Maharishi's programmes for creating world peace. The proof is in the continuing coverage by the global media, documenting the rising interest in Vedic knowledge and technologies of consciousness.
