On 15 November, leaders of the Global Country of World Peace in South Africa—National Director Dr Richard Peycke, and Dr Taddy Blecher, Director of Education and Director of Finance and Planning—paid tribute to the tremendous achievements of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, and gave a comprehensive retrospective of the impact of Maharishi's programmes in South Africa.
Beginning his summary, Dr Peycke said that it was an honour to represent all South Africans in expressing appreciation for what Maharishi has done for their nation. 'People think they understand how the history of this country has unfolded,' he said, 'but in reality the history of South Africa has been shaped by a process of purification of collective consciousness which Maharishi has brought about. Maharishi has brought wave after wave of purifying knowledge and has removed the stress blocking progress. The history of the rise of South Africa needs to be re-written to show how the profound knowledge, masterful teacher-ship, and wise guidance of Maharishi shaped the evolution of this nation.'
Dr Peycke said that teaching Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme to thousands of South Africans has moved the country forward with greater vitality, invincibility, and enlightenment in national life. Of the 60,000 people who have learned the TM programme, approximately 30,000 are students. Dr Peycke credited their daily Transcendental Meditation practice with nourishing and purifying the deepest level of consciousness of the society. He recalled Maharishi's teaching that it is the enlivenment of this deepest level which determines the progress and good fortune of the whole nation.
Dr Peycke reflected that Maharishi's programmes in South Africa were part of a greater whole—Maharishi's global plan for world peace—and that people in other parts of the world learning Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme created an influence of greater coherence in South Africa. He said that each stroke of transformation towards peace for the whole world through Maharishi's programmes transcended the boundaries of national borders and brought greater freedom to South Africa.
To illustrate the progressive transformations in his country as a result of Maharishi's coherence-creating programmes, Dr Peycke gave highlights of various major events over many years. These highlights will be presented in another article in the coming days of Global Good News.
