In Latin America, 170 educational institutions and 20 universities in 20 countries are now implementing Consciousness-Based Education. Two thousand faculty members and 65,000 students have been trained in Transcendental Meditation, and training is now in process for 20,000 Yogic Flyers. Invincibility is gradually developing in the continent of Latin America as a whole.

Speaking during the global celebration of Guru Purnima on 7 July in MERU, Holland, Raja Jose Luis Alvarez, Raja of Latin America for the Global Country of World Peace, reported on the remarkable achievements in his domain in the past year.

He described this expansion of Consciousness-Based Education in Latin America and said that invincibility is gradually developing in Latin America as a whole, and especially in Colombia*, Bolivia, Peru, and Mexico. In the next few months Panama, Guatamala, Ecuador, Chile, Brazil, Venezuela, Guyana, and Suriname will also be rising to invincibility**.

From many angles invincibility is rising, Raja Luis said; it started with education. On 22 August a webinar for educators will be held in 30 countries. Those taking part include 200-300 school principals and 25 vice-chancellors of universities. During this webinar they will put together a plan for introducing Consciousness-Based Education throughout the continent, in the Caribbean, and in some countries in Africa. There will also be a continental association and programme to support all the activities on a much greater scale.

'Before we were doing it school by school,' Raja Luis explained. 'Now in some countries we have already contacted 200 schools' and also the authorities at the same time.

He said that their approach continues to develop and expand: with the support of the International Foundation of Consciousness-Based Education for the curricula, and great support from everyone, they intend to accomplish the establishment of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying everywhere in education.

Raja Luis praised Dr Richard Tucker as a model of a Vice-Chancellor; as president of a group of universities, he is taking a leading role in making educators aware of the importance of Consciousness-Based Education.

In the coming days Global Good News will feature further achievements in Latin America presented by Raja Luis.

** Rising to invincibility: Invincibility is created for a country when the required number of Yogic Flyers—equal to the square root of one per cent of the population—practises Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, together daily in large groups. In Latin America and throughout the world, education is one of the main areas through which invincibility is being achieved. It can also be achieved through any area of society where groups are living and working together, for example in the military, in companies, or in communities where individuals come together regularly in large groups, specifically for this purpose.
