China's interest in Maharishi University of Management continues, with two delegations visiting the Iowa, USA campus in recent weeks, including entrepreneurs, artists, and journalists.
In late October a 12-member delegation from the Yitian Group of Langfang City near Beijing came for a four-day visit. The Yitian Group is a business conglomerate covering real estate, urban development, schools, greenhouses and agriculture, and retirement residences.
''The chairman of the Yitian Group is very interested in what we have done and achieved as a university and as a Transcendental Meditation organization,'' said Zhu Yunxiang, MUM vice president of Asia Expansion.
The association came about after Mr. Zhu visited the Yitian Group in 2014 and 2015 to promote Consciousness-Based℠ Education and other facets of Maharishi's knowledge, including Maharishi Vastu® and Maharishi Vedic Organic Agriculture℠. At that time the Yitian Group and MUM signed an agreement to collaborate.
As a result, the chairman of the Yitian Group sent his top management to visit campus, including his assistant and deputy general manager. The delegation also included government officials who have been supportive of the Yitian Group's expansion and collaboration.
In addition, last month a group of 25 Chinese artists, organizers, and journalists visited MUM on the second stop of their first world tour and performed in the Argiro Student Lounge.
The seven performers exhibited a variety of Chinese cultural traditions, including dough modeling, snuff bottle painting, facial painting, calligraphy, seal carving, and diabolo (a type of Chinese yo-yo that balances a spinning object on a string between two sticks).
In addition, two well-known folk musicians performed on the traditional instruments known as Erhu and Guzheng.
The journalists in the delegation included reporters from the Chinese Xinhua News Agency, the Beijing Daily Group, and the Beijing TV station.
The goal of the group is to introduce the beauty of the Chinese cultural heritage and promote understanding and friendship between the two countries.
