Though most schools in Latin America were recently on school holiday, a few projects incorporating Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's technologies of consciousness continued to develop during that break time.

One such continuing programme is at a large orphanage in South America. According to one Transcendental Meditation teacher, the orphanage project has not taken a break—in fact, people 'have been working day and night', teaching many classes in Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programmes.

The orphanage does not take breaks for school holidays because, although it operates several school programmes, the children are there on a permanent basis. Many arrive when they are quite young and stay until they are 18 or 19 years old.

As a result of the continuing progress during the holiday time, a group of 1,000 children will soon learn an advanced technique of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme called Yogic Flying.

A Transcendental Meditation teacher working with the orphanage said that this is a special group, organized by a priest who has taken care of the children in a very special way. The project has been going on for some months and has been very successful.

Because of this, teachers hope to use the project as an example of what Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programmes can provide for underprivileged and at-risk children.

'The success of the project will become a model,' a teacher said. 'Now we will be [creating similar projects] in any other place that is possible, on the basis of this success.'

He concluded that this will be an example for the whole of Latin America and the rest of world.
