Several new websites for Africa have gone online in the past year to present the knowledge and technologies of consciousness brought to the world by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation programme, to government leaders, special areas of society, and the general public in all the African nations.
These, as well as other websites with a global focus, have been developed by one of the departments of the Global Country of World Peace* founded by Maharishi, the Ministry of Religion and Culture. They were presented at an international conference this year at Maharishi European Research University (MERU) in the Netherlands, by Dr Chris Crowell, Minister of Religion and Culture.
The website for the World Federation of Traditional Kings describes the global organization founded by Maharishi to bring his knowledge to the traditional areas of administration in the world family of nations. The World Federation supports the age-old parental role of administration embodied in the life of traditional leaders of the world. Its goal is the revival and preservation of administration through natural law so that cultural integrity, harmony, affluence, and peace will be established for all time. Dr Crowell is International Director of the World Federation of Traditional Kings
The website for Transcendental Meditation in Africa is a portal for all of the teaching activities for the programme, especially applied for the people of Africa. It is a comprehensive website that defines Transcendental Meditation and describes its many benefits. One section covers extensive scientific research conducted on the technique over many years around the world, documenting its positive effects in many areas of life. Another outlines special programmes for business leaders, women, and students, and rehabilitation programmes for prison inmates, military veterans, and the large population of Africans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) after decades of violence and war.
A new organization, the Institute for Excellence in Africa, was founded this year to identify and implement proven, prevention-oriented, forward-looking solutions to critical national, continental, and global problems facing Africa. The site shows the range of applications of the highly effective programmes developed by Maharishi in education, health care, economic development, cultural integrity, social harmony, and peace, together with research in each area and examples of current projects in Africa.
Dr Crowell explained that the website is a portal to give African leaders an opportunity to learn about these solutions to help the people of their nations. A Development Board is forming, consisting of distinguished Africans who are helping to promote the Institute's programmes.
Global Good News will continue to report on other new websites with a global range, which have also been developed in the past year; and a video Dr Crowell presented, featuring a community development programme to promote an ideal quality of life in a village in rural Kenya.
* The Global Country of World Peace was founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as a consortium of educational organizations in more than 100 countries working to create a new era of peace, progress, and prosperity in the world family. It is a 'nation without borders', a home for peace-loving people everywhere. The domain of the Global Country of World Peace is consciousness—the prime mover of life—the ground state of natural law, the field of all possibilities. It is a non-political, non-religious global organization.
