During the 2 November Full Moon Celebration, leaders of the Global Mother Divine Organization* of Ghana reported that the organization is registered in their country, and they now have Maharishi Jyotish and Maharishi Sthapatya Veda Coordinators, who will bring the knowledge of Vedic Astrology and Vedic Architecture to the ladies of Ghana. A youth wing of the Global Mother Divine Organization has also been formed.

The headmistress of a girls' school is now leading the organization's
Foundation for Total Knowledge Based Education. The Transcendental Meditation Programme has been introduced to 44 girls and two lady teachers in the school. The headmistress commented that Consciousness-Based Education 'will go a long way to save our young generation'.

Land has been donated for a residential Maharishi Invincibility School for 500 girls. Organizers of the project are awaiting plans from the architect, and raising support to begin construction as soon as possible. They are very happy that the number of students at this school will be sufficient to form a coherence-creating group for the invincibility** of Ghana.

A special one-day ladies' course, celebrating the role of mothers, was held in Ghana during the global celebration of the Festival of Lights, Dipavali. One participant commented that the day was very blissful for her, and that she enjoyed deep experiences during the practice of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme—the course gave her 'the opportunity to go deep in my inner being'. Another lady described her enjoyment of the course: 'I came to the course very tired, but by the end of it I became strong, well-rested, and blissful.'

The National Director for the Global Mother Divine Organization for Ghana commented that ladies gain so much from the one-day courses, and are very grateful for the knowledge they receive.

The leader of an organization bringing education to children said that she was very pleased to introduce Transcendental Meditation in this organization, and feels that it will help with illiteracy. 'It has been a smooth process to teach the children,' she said, relating some of the children's experiences. One twelve-year-old boy who learnt the technique said that he really likes it. Before learning Transcendental Meditation, he would feel tired in the evening, but now he feels strong. There are signs of more boldness in the children and they are more verbal in their expression, the leader commented, and there have also been marked improvements in the children's grades. The entire staff of the school practises Transcendental Meditation and it is creating a healthier environment, she said.

* 'Mother Divine' refers to the nourishing, evolutionary power of Natural Law lively within all of creation and within the silent consciousness of everyone. The Global Mother Divine Organization, established in December 2007, is the ladies' wing of the Global Country of World Peace.

** One of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes for world peace is to create Invincibility for every nation through the introduction of Consciousness-Based Education in schools all over the world, in which large groups of students practise the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme together as part of their education. These large groups enliven the 'Maharishi Effect' in collective consciousness, creating coherence in national consciousness, the basis of invincibility for each nation, which in turn is the basis of world peace.
