Up Nepal: Entire staff of agricultural NGO learns Transcendental Meditation Slideshow

29 July 2013

Two large groups of people in Nepal have learned the stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation technique in the last year.

At one of the leading NGOs for developing agricultural policy in Nepal, the entire staff has learned Transcendental Meditation (TM). The Centre for Environmental and Agricultural Policy Research, Extension and Development (CEAPRED) was established in 1991, one of the first NGOs of its kind.

The CEAPRED website explains more about the organization's goals:

'Ever since its establishment, CEAPRED has consciously and consistently focused on sustainable poverty reduction and enhancement of food security and livelihoods of the poor, disadvantaged, and deprived families, including small and marginal farmers, of rural Nepal.'

The president of CEAPRED learned Transcendental Meditation years ago and enjoyed it so much that he supported his entire staff of over 30 to learn as well. Now, those who work for the organization have a group practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique morning and evening.

Another large group, also part of a project to promote a better quality of life, has recently learned Transcendental Meditation. (read more)
