On 25 September, 75 Maharishi Invincibility Centres in the United States held their first annual 'Change Begins Within' Gala Celebration to inspire support for those who have a sincere desire to learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme but are facing financial challenges.
More than 1,500 attended the event, and raised a significant amount of support which will contribute to local Centres, as well as community outreach programmes to bring Transcendental Meditation to students, military veterans, homeless people, Native Americans, and others. This funding will allow more than 1,000 individuals to learn the technique this year.
One of the highlights of the event was a 38-minute video hosted by Dr John Hagelin, Raja of Invincible America for the Global Country of World Peace, in which he showcased several of the wonderful programmes currently underway to help at-risk individuals in need. The video featured interviews and brief performances by entertainers and celebrities including Dr David Lynch, Paul McCartney, Sheryl Crow, Jerry Seinfeld, and others who performed at the 'Change Begins Within' benefit concert in New York City in 2009. This video will soon be available at the website TMFriends.org.*
Glowing reports from the Centres continue to come in, indicating that the event created a powerful wave of bliss among practitioners of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes. Many participants were grateful for the opportunity to come together and play a role in making Transcendental Meditation available to others in their community.
This report was featured on the 28 September 2010 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3.
* In a separate announcement, Raja Hagelin said the video will also be aired on PBS (US public television) in the coming months.
