Dr Alarik Arenander*, Director of the Brain Research Institute at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, and his wife Dr Cynthia Arenander, recently reported on their six-week tour of India from early September through late October. They visited eight cities, making presentations to the great intellects, academics, and opinion-makers in India about Maharishi's Vedic Science and total brain development. The presentations included live brainwave demonstrations showing increased coherence of brainwave activity through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique.

Speaking on the Maharishi Global Family Chat they reported on their visit to the grand administrative centre for Maharishi's programmes in Bhopal.
They showed slides of the area with its glorious main entrance gate, Vastu homes for families, and many large, beautiful Maharishi Sthapatya Veda buildings where children attend school and parents work. The families also enjoy their own produce, grown in nearby fields.
The campus of the Maharishi Centre for Educational Excellence—one of nearly 150 Maharishi Vidya Mandir schools in India, which offer Consciousness-Based Education to more than 80,000 students—was lovely, they said, with its gardens, fences, porticos, flying flags, and occasionally a giraffe or other animal. It was a serene environment for the students, Dr Arenander said.
In addition to the 1,000 students who attend the school in Bhopal, during the Arenanders' visit, students from the Maharishi Vidya Mandirs all over India gathered for several days at the campus for the 'Maharishi National Cultural Meet 2008'.
When Dr Alarik and Dr Cynthia Arenander gave a lively presentation to this group, the parents, teachers, and organizers were having as much fun as the students, Dr Arenander said. People love hearing about the brain, he continued, and about how Maharishi's technologies allow individuals to live not only a small fraction of their potential, but to awaken the total potential of the brain.
At the end of the three-day event, the Governor of the state of Madhya Pradesh addressed the assembly: 'It is a matter of pride that organizations like [that of] Maharishi Mahesh Yogi are working in different countries of the world and in Madhya Pradesh to inculcate the high human values in the young generation. Clearly these students will be world leaders tomorrow.'
The Governor said that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, had done a commendable work towards spreading humanity, Indian culture, and traditions across the globe. 'His works will be remembered by us forever,' he said.
The Governor distributed prizes to students participating in various cultural competitions during these three days, and also awarded the teachers for their exemplary services—for their noble profession to enlighten the children and also create invincibility for the nation, Dr Arenander said.
Global Good News will feature the continuation of Dr Arenander's talk in the coming days.
*Alarik Arenander, PhD, is also Director of Research at the Center for Leadership Performance, a division of Maharishi University of Management's Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy. Dr Arenander, an expert in the neurobiology of brain development and mind-body health, has conducted pioneering research at the University of California at Los Angeles, Penn State University at Hershey, University of Wisconsin at Madison, and Maharishi University of Management.
