The Perfect Match: Transcendental Meditation and Global Love


The search for perfection is often elusive but Father Gabriel Mejia, a Catholic priest from South America, may be on to something. By merging the scientific benefits of the Transcendental Meditation® technique with the magic of global love, Father Mejia has created what seems to be a marriage made in heaven.

Father Mejia’s passion is providing assistance and guidance to the at-risk youth of South America. It is from this passion that he has created 52 shelters for homeless children and youthful offenders in his home country. Father Mejia, who is sometimes referred to as the "Saint of Colombia," says that “Love is the most essential medicine for any illness or disorder and that is why we must insist on globalizing love.”

Another important ingredient in Father Mejia’s recipe for success is the availability of the TM technique at his shelters for displaced street children. In October Father Mejia hosted a conference in Argentina with 1,500 participants to share this message. The theme of the conference was the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation program in the rehabilitation of youth offenders and the prevention of crime.

With the help of the David Lynch Foundation, more than 3,600 children have learned the Transcendental Meditation technique in South America. An additional 700 young people have also learned the advanced technique of TM, called TM-Sidhi® program.



Father Mejia’s humanitarian work has been widely recognized. He has received an award from the World Federation of Therapeutic Communities and the Queen of Spain. He has also served as president of the Latin American Federation of Therapeutic Communities and received an honorary doctorate from Maharishi University of Management in Iowa.

We wish Father Mejia well in his efforts to engage the youth of South American in the peace of the TM technique while surrounded by global love.
