Lynch To Direct Maharishi Documentary

TWIN PEAKS director DAVID LYNCH has reportedly signed on to make a new movie about Transcendental Meditation guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who died in 2008, aged 91.
The moviemaker, who is a big advocate of meditation, will shoot the documentary in India and plans to start shooting there next month (Dec09).
Lynch hopes his film will help boost his attempts to introduce Transcendental Meditation in schools globally.
Acclaimed Indo-American statesman Rajan Zed has welcomed Lynch's new project, and he's impressed the director will thoroughly research the film in India.
Zed tells WENN, "He'll be looking at the many finer and deeper things India offered, instead of just focusing on poverty and crime."
During his lifetime, the Maharishi established almost 1,000 Transcendental Meditation centres worldwide and had an estimated four million followers.

Lynch might want to find a copy of "The Cynical Idealist: A Spiritual Biography of John Lennon," which was just published by Quest Books.Author and artist Gary Tillery credits Lennon with significant contributions to spiritual movements such as meditation, men's liberation, creative visualization, and the peace and nonviolence movements.There's an excerpt from the book at Amazon that ponders, "What would John Lennon do?" in response to current events.
