Traditional Rulers around the world are increasingly adopting the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. 'There is a transformation in society and the power of indigenous people is rising—the power of knowledge, the power of reawakening total Natural Law, that will bring fulfilment to every traditional culture throughout the world,' said Dr Christopher Crowell, Minister of Religion and Culture of the Global Country of World Peace.*
'Traditional cultures are the bright, shining stars of peace in the world, Maharishi said.'
Traditional peoples around the world have faced disruption of their language and culture by outside influences that created myriad difficulties for them. Maharishi's knowledge and programmes realign the intelligence of every culture—which has been disrupted along with their traditional structure of life—with the intelligence of Nature.
Now, indigenous communities around the world are enjoying Maharishi's programmes for every area of life, Dr Crowell continued.
For example, traditional communities are enjoying the benefits of Consciousness-Based Education, which awakens total brain functioning and the total potential of the student, 'so that their every thought, word, and deed is a reflection of total Natural Law . . . the source of every culture.'
American Indian communities in the United States, First Nations people of Canada, and many indigenous peoples in Latin America are offering Consciousness-Based Education. A Maori mayor in New Zealand is also starting a school programme.
Throughout Latin America many indigenous groups are learning the Transcendental Meditation Programme and Yogic Flying. An Aboriginal group in Australia is also enjoying Transcendental Meditation.
'These are individuals who are part of a very ancient tradition in each case, whose culture recognizes the tradition of being in tune with Nature and having the experience of Natural Law, and now this is being reawakened in their culture.'
'Everywhere, in every culture, we are seeing an enlivenment of Transcendental Meditation and the appreciation for the experience of this Unified Field of Natural Law, awakened on the level of individual intelligence.'
