Oscar nominated David Lynch will make a film about Transcendental
Meditation (tm) guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, according to reports.
He will reportedly visit India next month in this connection.
This documentary film about the life and teachings and knowledge of
Maharishi will involve interviews with people, including a 97-year
man associated with Maharishi, reports suggest.
David Keith Lynch, 63, has been attempting to introduce TM in schools
globally. The Guardian, British daily newspaper from London,
described Lynch as "the most important director of this era."
Welcoming Lynch to India for this new venture, acclaimed
Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA)
today, urged world filmmakers to explore many finer and deeper things
India offered, instead of just focusing on poverty and crime.
Zed, who is chairperson of Indo-American Leadership Confederation,
pointed out that planet's most multidimensional country India had
snowcapped mountains, palm-fringed and sun-washed beaches, glorious
temples, colourful festivals, rich philosophy and spirituality,
abundant historical sites, wildlife safaris, recharging treks,
historic trade routes, cultural wealth, etc.
Maharishi, who died last year at an age of about 91, introduced TM
technique worldwide, and wished to change the world with it.
He initiated 'The Beatles' and was associated with various
celebrities like American rockers 'The Beach Boys', musician Mick
Jagger, hairdresser Vidal Sassoon, Golden Globe winner Mia Farrow
(Rosemary's Baby), etc.
He reportedly established about one thousand TM centres worldwide and
had about four million followers.
