The recent summit of several thousand members of the Latin American Association of Mayors, held in Argentina from 2 through 4 September 2009, was unprecedented not only in opportunities extended to Global Country of World Peace leaders to present Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes for ideal governmental administration. Those presentations also had a profound impact on attendees, generating a high level of enthusiasm.

The report about the mayors' summit continued on Maharishi Global Family Chat.* After descriptions of key presentations by two mayors from North America—Raja Robert Wynne, Mayor of Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, USA, and Mr Ed Malloy, Mayor of nearby Fairfield, Iowa—Dr Germán Martina, National Director of Argentina for the Global Country of World Peace, commented:

'These speeches had a profound impact on the audience, opening people's eyes to the possibility of solving government problems from the inside, rather than outside.' Dr Martina went on to say that the Global Country of World Peace information booth, where brochures and booklets were distributed, was the most visited at the conference. 'We foresee an unprecedented level of activity in the coming weeks and months, as mayors and other government officials approach us with interest in our programmes.'

The enthusiasm demonstrated by summit participants encouraged the establishment of the Latin American Institute of Science, Technology, and Public Policy, through which government officials throughout Latin America can implement Maharishi's knowledge for public administration.

'Until now, we have focussed on offering the Transcendental Meditation Programme to the general population,' explained Raja Jose Luis Alvarez, Raja of Invincible Latin America for the Global Country of World Peace. 'Now, we need to work at the level of government, bringing tools to administrators of cities and nations.'

The main programmes presented by Raja Luis and the other leaders, to be implemented within cities through this new Institute, included:

- reducing and eliminating violence through groups practising Maharishi's Technologies of Consciousness,
- Consciousness-Based Education,
- Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health,
- Maharishi Towers of Invincibility,
- Maharishi Peace Colonies,** and
- Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture.

These programmes and areas of knowledge were presented through pamphlets, exhibitions, and videos, and were extremely well received by mayors at the conference.

The closing speech at the summit, shown by Raja Luis on the Global Family Chat, was given by Dr Julio Pereyra, Mayor of Florencio Varela, Argentina and Co-President of the Latin American Association of Mayors. Dr Pereyra, who led the summit, is also a long-time practitioner of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme.

Dr Pereyra commented that 'the path to invincibility and enlightenment for Latin America has been made clear through this event. It represents the greatest success of the Global Country of World Peace for the continent.'

* The report by Raja Luis and others was featured on the 8 September 2009 Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.

** Maharishi Peace Colony: A community founded to help create invincibility for a nation, based on the principles of Maharishi's Vedic Science and its practical applications for living perfection in all areas of life—and in addition to features described above, including a Maharishi Peace Palace, Maharishi School, and Maharishi Ayur-Veda Health Centre—all built according to Vedic Architecture, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.
