People in the Central Asian countries of Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan, which in the past were part of the Soviet Union, are embracing the knowledge and technologies of consciousness brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
In Uzbekistan, Transcendental Meditation teacher Konstantin Osipov reported recently that the past year has seen around 80 people learn the meditation technique.
In addition, three courses were held in the country, in the Science of Creative Intelligence, in Maharishi Sthapatya Veda (Vastu architecture), and in Maharishi Vedic Science. About 45 people took these courses.
'The greatest achievement this year was a new TM teacher for Uzbekistan' who graduated from her training course in May, Mr Osipov said.
This new teacher opened a Transcendental Meditation Centre in the city of Bukhara, in the heart of Uzbekistan, and has already starting teaching courses. She reported a great level of interest in the self-development technique, which is well-known throughout the world for its ability to reduce stress, improve health, and develop integrated brain functioning.
Mr Osipov commented on growing softness in the atmosphere in his country, as a reflection of the increasing number of people practising Transcendental Meditation. Teachers have found more response from organizations and more acceptance of Maharishi's programmes.
From Kyrgyzstan, Transcendental Meditation teacher Bakyt Supuev spoke of his country's history of involvement with the programme.
He said that in Kyrgyzstan, a developing country with stunning landscapes and natural resources, a Maharishi School of Management was opened in 1996.
'For the past 16 years, we have been teaching and giving knowledge' brought out by Maharishi, Mr Supuev said.
There are now three Transcendental Meditation teachers in Kyrgyzstan's centre, and, to date, they have taught 3,500 people. The centre holds group meditations three times a week and also provides a weekly course in the Science of Creative Intelligence.
