On 13 January 2010, during the continuing global celebration of 12 January in MERU, Holland, the Global Mother Divine Organization* (GMDO) reported on its many achievements in India, including activities of MDVP (Mahila Dhyan Vidya Peeth), the ladies' wing of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme in India since 1976.
MDVP has its National Office at Maharishi Nagar, NOIDA. There is also a strong group of the Mother Divine Programme** supporting its activities from its deep experience of silence.
In 2009, lady Teachers of Transcendental Meditation have taught the technique mostly in schools. The total number of people who learnt Transcendental Meditation is about 33,300—of which 50 per cent are school students, and the rest adults.
About 900 people (mostly school students) learnt the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and about 1,000 learned Advanced Techniques of Transcendental Meditation.
At Maharishi Veda Vigyan Maha Vidyalaya College for Girls, Hyderabad, 1,150 college students are practising the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and 500 of them also Advanced Techniques. At the school level, a total of 1,800 students are practising Transcendental Meditation, 200 of whom learned during 2009.
Maharishi Vidya Mandir in Kolkata, where all students and teachers practise Transcendental Meditation twice daily, continues to go from strength to strength. The first batch of Class X students had appeared in 2009 for the CISCE (Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations) Final Examination and achieved 100 per cent results. The second batch will take the examinations in March 2010. Besides developing academic excellence, students participate in a wide range of co-curricular activities, and teachers and students are winning recognition in inter-school contests.
A new MDVP centre at Varanasi opened in September, where along with the Transcendental Meditation teaching activities, consultations in Maharishi Ayur-Veda health care and Maharishi Jyotish (Vedic Astrology) are also offered.
In Tamil Nadu, the Regional GMDO Director recently successfully conducted two Transcendental Meditation-Sidhi Yogic Flying courses.
Global Good News will continue featuring the achievements and activities of the Global Mother Divine Organization in India in the coming days.
