President Joaquim Chissano, former president of Mozambique, continued his video address about the Transcendental Meditation programme to the Gotabgaa Conference of Kenyans in Washington, DC, USA, in June 2010. President Chissano's talk is featured on a new DVD knowledge series.
See Part I of President Chissano's remarks. He went on to say:
'There are many ways of looking for where we're coming from and where we're going to. But to know ourselves we can reach when we practice a meditation which brings a silence for some time every day, so that we be ourselves out of the tensions we create every day. We live in tensions, we live in stress, and so we cannot find ourselves. We are preoccupied with external things which surround us, and we forget about ourselves.
'So each day we have to find ourselves through a deep meditation, and this I have learned to get it through Transcendental Meditation, which is a very simple practice. It takes only 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the afternoon—or any time of the day where you can be in silence with yourself—without making any big efforts to try, and to dispel all the tensions, all the preoccupations which you accumulate during the day.
'Then you re-regulate yourselves, and then you can now know how to care about the others. You care about yourself, and you can know how to care about the others—how to share and how to bring more peace in your relations with other people, and the relations in the community, and the relations among the people of your nation.
'So you will be contributing to build a new world just by practicing this kind of meditation because it dispels the stress from yourself, and then it dispels the stress from your relations with the others, and so on. And so this has got a multiplying effect.
'So this is what I have learned. I have felt it when I was instructed in this meditation. So if you have someone who offers to explain to you in depth about the meditation, you'll be accumulating a big gain, which you can then share with your countrymen by studying from you who are participating in this conference. Thank you.'
President Chissano's message was featured in a series of presentations at the conference by leading scientists and experts in Transcendental Meditation and related programmes in health, education, and development of total brain potential, titled: 'Application of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for the Education, Health and Promotion of Peace in Africa'.
Global Good News will feature more about the other presenters on Transcendental Meditation at the 2010 Conference.
