Sixties pop star DONOVAN is planning to open his own university where students can learn all about transcendental meditation. The Atlantis singer has dreams of launching the Invincible Donovan University in Edinburgh, Scotland - 40 years after he first conceived of the idea during a trip to India to study eastern mysticism with The Beatles. Donovan says, "I know it sounds like an airy-fairy hippie dream to go on about '60s peace and love. But the world is ready for this now; it is clear this is the time. "The (spiritual leader) Maharishi told me during that 1968 visit that I should build a university in Edinburgh. I went to my room and drew a beautiful dome-shaped place of learning." Last week (ends25Oct07), film director David Lynch announced he has teamed up with Donovan to launch a campaign to teach London children to meditate in classrooms.
