During the Maharishi Global Family Chat on 8 September, 2008, Dr Chris Crowell, Minister of Religion and Culture for the Global Country of World Peace, gave a beautiful talk on the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and the Global Country of World Peace, bringing fulfilment to every culture and religious tradition around the world.
Referring to Maharishi lectures on the role of culture, Dr Crowell explained that traditional cultural values are the diverse expressions of Nature's intelligence—Natural Law—which guides life to greater fulfilment. Through the practice of Transcendental Meditation, one experiences Atma, the Self. This is the state of Pure Consciousness, the Unified Field of Natural Law, which propels the evolution of life. Through this experience, the full potential of human consciousness is developed, reconnecting the individual with the totality of Natural Law, thereby bringing fulfilment to the ultimate value of cultural traditions.
Dr Crowell gave an overview of native peoples around the world implementing Maharishi's Programmes in their communities and schools. This article features the enthusiastic response of traditional communities in Central and South America. (Pease see also Part I—North America and the Pacific.)
Panama 200 people of the Kuna Embra Nation have started the Transcendental Meditation Technique, and more wish to learn.
Guatemala 500 Maya have started Transcendental Meditation, the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme and Yogic Flying in their communities and schools.
Argentina 50 Quom Toba have learned the Transcendental Meditation Technique.
Bolivia 800 Aymaras have started Transcendental Meditation, the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and Yogic Flying.
Paraguay 200 Toba Quom have started Transcendental Meditation, the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and Yogic Flying.
'These traditional cultural groups are blossoming through the reconnection with the totality of Natural Law,' said Dr Crowell. 'It is wonderful that the invincibility of these different countries is coming initially from the First Nations and indigenous communities, whose cultures have often been marginalized. Now they are instrumental in re-enlivening the purity of Natural Law, creating coherence and success for their nations.
