On April 26 and 27, the Mata Amritanandamayi Math (MAM) held Integrated Amrita Meditation Technique® (IAM Technique®) classes for the special police of Tamil Nadu. A total of 56 policemen participated in the training—50 constables and six officers.
Classes were conducted by Brahmachari Ajamrita Chaitanya at the Special Police Training Centre in Avadi, Chennai. The police department requested MAM to provide the classes after leaning of MAM’s similar training of India’s military and paramilitary forces. The department believed IAM Technique® to be an affective method of relieving tension in both constables and officers. Upon the conclusion of the two-day training, one constable Thamizh Sevlan commented, “This service is essential for the betterment of the country and this is the best meditation technique”
