About 1,000 people have learned the Transcendental Meditation Programme this past year in South Africa, said Raja Bob LoPinto, Raja of Invincible South Africa for the Global Country of World Peace, recently summarizing the nation's achievements, which include expansion of Consciousness-Based Education and a new Maharishi Ayur-Veda Health Centre.
There are seven Maharishi Invincibility Centres* in the nation, he said, with about 30-40 people learning Transcendental Meditation each month at the flagship Centre. This is one of the most active Centres in the English speaking world: every day and every evening its many rooms are all filled with activity.
Consciousness-Based Education is also successful in the nation. The Maharishi Invincibility Institute, whose focus is to create a new generation of leadership and enlightenment for South Africa and the world, is expanding and many top Consciousness-Based Education experts are collaborating to offer academic and administrative excellence.
In addition, 23 school principals and 110 teachers have learned Transcendental Meditation and are committed to offering the technique in their schools. Seven schools are ready to implement the programme, and the goal is to raise the funds for 10,000 students to learn in the first year, Raja LoPinto said.
There has been extensive media coverage of the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi throughout the country this year—including news articles and radio and television interviews.
A Maharishi Ayur-Veda spa has begun offering treatments with great success. In May, a celebrity actress/model came and enjoyed it so much that she booked again for July with others of her entourage, Raja LoPinto said.
* Maharishi Invincibility Centres in major cities around the world offer the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, including the Transcendental Meditation Programme, to promote enlightenment for every individual and invincibility for every nation through development of full potential in every area of life.
