MUM Student Went to TTC Thanks to You!

(Please check the note in the end before you donate if you decide to.)


Dear Friends,

I have good news and bad news to share with you!

The bad news is that after four magical years in Fairfield as an MUM
undergraduate, I am leaving. The good news is that I am embarking on a new chapter of my life that will start with TTC in Thailand next month. This will be the TTC for Turkish people and people from Middle East, Asia and Africa.

This December I will graduate with a BA in Maharishi Vedic Science
and a minor in Business Administration. I have grown and learned so much at MUM!


Fairfield will always be my second home, but the time has come to fulfill a longstanding desire of mine to become a TM teacher.

Turkey needs more TM teachers and I want to do my part to spread Maharishi's knowledge there.

The Middle East and the entire World need more peaceful individuals.

And if, as Maharishi says, the teacher always gains more than the student, then I can look forward to more growth of consciousness as well!

In order to make this dream come true, I must raise $9000 to cover my course fee and travel expenses.

To do that, I need to ask for your help.

I have been told many times that the TM Movement needs a new generation of TM teachers. Please help me to become a TM teacher so I can do my part to fulfill Maharishi's desire for a heavenly world for all, Heaven On Earth.

Any assistance, large or small, will be deeply appreciated.

Thank you for making Fairfield the ideal community that it is.

Jai Guru Dev,
Baris Turkkan
