During the four-year anniversary celebration of the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, Dr Robert Roth, Director of Expansion for the Global Country of World Peace in the United States, reported on the American Indian Initiative, the introduction of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in schools and reservations for the health, progress, and well-being of Native Americans around the United States.*

Like many others present on the occasion, Dr Roth said, he has taught Transcendental Meditation for decades, in prisons, businesses, and schools. One especially memorable recent occasion, he said, was the great privilege of sitting with a tribe of American Indians in Nebraska, while 250 students practised Transcendental Meditation during their Quiet Time. He also met with the tribal elders, all of whom are practising the technique.

'This work, carried out by Dr John Boncheff and Dr Patricia Dunn, with the Indian leadership of Mr Prosper Waukon, is the centre of a huge renaissance of American Indian culture,' Dr Roth said. 'I feel it is a shortcut to bringing America back in harmony with Natural Law. The American Indians are the custodians of Natural Law,' and many are keenly anticipating Maharishi's knowledge and programmes.

Earlier in the celebration, Dr Roth honoured and expressed gratitude to Raja John Hagelin,** Raja of Invincible America and President of the David Lynch Foundation, who was hosting the celebration, for his unparalleled leadership of all the projects now underway in the US.

Dr Roth related an anecdote in which students of Maharishi University of Management once asked Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the University, what are the ideal qualities of a great leader. Maharishi answered that a great leader appreciates the great qualities of his followers. Raja Hagelin 'gives us the freedom, the creativity, and the energy to strike like lightning in all directions,' Dr Roth said.

Maharishi also said that when Raja Hagelin speaks, he speaks as 'the voice of Natural Law'. 'Natural Law must be so happy to have Raja Hagelin speaking for it,' Dr Roth said.

Global Good News will feature a second article about the American Indian Initiative in the coming days.

* The David Lynch Foundation's fourth anniversary celebration was featured on the 28 and 29 July Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3.

** Raja John Hagelin is a world-renowned quantum physicist and Executive Director of the International Center for Invincible Defense in New York City, USA. He is also Raja of Invincible America and Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace.
