Great praise and admiration are due to Mr Richard Tucker, one of the world's leading educators. Vice-Chancellor of Venezuela's private Iutirla University with 40,000 students on 24 campuses in 13 towns throughout Venezuela, Mr Tucker has personally organized the official introduction of Consciousness-Based Education into the curriculum of the university.
Mr Tucker, whose father and grandfather started and built up Venezuela's largest private university, says he wants to provide the students in his care with everything they need to meet the challenges of today's world. He sees Consciousness-Based Education as the system that will do this most effectively.
The news that Mr Tucker had signed an agreement with the Global Country of World Peace was reported on the Maharishi Channel on 20 August by Dr Jose Luis Alvarez Roset, Raja of Latin America.
Raja Luis explained that Venezuela has a population of 29 million and thus requires around 500 Yogic Flyers to crown the nation with invincibility. The country is also favoured by nature in that it has the Angel Falls, the largest waterfalls in the world, and a large coastline to the north. Water bodies to the north or east are auspicious and bring favourable influences, according to Vastu Vidya, or the science of orientation and placement embodied in Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.
Mr Tucker, a man of great foresight and insight, has personally designed the publicity materials to bring Consciousness-Based Education to his students' attention. He also takes every opportunity to personally recommend the programme to them. This new addition to the curriculum will be an option that students can take, and will supplement a wide range of vocational and academic courses offered by the university.
Students at all campuses opting into Consciousness-Based Education will receive instruction simultaneously by videoconference. This will ensure that there is no delay in the maximum number of students starting to practise the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, which is the technology at the core of this most advanced educational system.
Mr Tucker is also the President of the Private Education School Association in Venezuela, which has 250,000 students under its care. The uptake of Consciousness-Based Education in the country, therefore, is potentially very much greater even than at present.
So great is Mr Tucker's appreciation of the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, and their ability to create invincibility—a state of 'all good for everyone, and non-good for no one'—that he has also donated a prime plot of land in a beautiful residential area of the capital, Caracas, to the Global Country of World Peace.
The plot, which Mr Tucker has had for some time without knowing what purpose he wished to put it to, will now be adorned with a magnificent, white marble clad Tower of Invincibility.
Mr Tucker, Raja Luis concluded, is truly a great and successful leader who will bring huge benefits to his country, and indeed, to the world. On hearing of these developments in Venezuela, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi commented that Mr Tucker had placed his country 'on a golden path'.
