Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management, has embarked on a 14-country tour of Africa.
'This tour comes during the Golden Jubilee anniversary of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's first visit to Africa in 1961,' said Dr Chris Crowell, director of Religion and Culture for Maharishi's programmes in countries around the world.
Dr Crowell reported on the inauguration of Dr Morris's tour 25 January in Ghana and gave an overview of some of the other countries he will visit. The many activities planned and projects that Dr Morris will visit will highlight the rising success of Maharishi's programmes in many fields of life to promote enlightenment for every individual and invincible peace and progress for every nation and the whole continent.
These include development of consciousness through the Transcendental Meditation Programme, Consciousness-Based Education, creating social coherence and harmony in collective consciousness, and building homes and other buildings using the principles of Maharishi Vastu architecture in accord with Natural Law.
'This tour of Dr Morris of Africa is very fitting as a celebration of the expression of Total Knowledge, enlightenment, and invincibility that is rising in Africa now,' Dr Crowell said—the blossoming of 'Maharishi's first seeds that he planted over 50 years ago'.
Some of the countries he will visit are Ghana, Ivory Coast, Togo, Senegal, South Africa, Kenya, Uganda, Ethiopia, Mauritius, and Seychelles. Along the way he will meet with leaders in many fields and teachers and practitioners of Transcendental Meditation; and have conference sessions with people in other countries.
Global Good News will report on more highlights of Dr Morris's tour of Africa from Dr Crowell's recent overview; as well as upcoming reports from Dr Morris en route as his tour progresses through the various countries.
Also featured will be more about Maharishi's first visit to Africa in 1961, and an event Dr Crowell described that took place in Nairobi, Kenya in 1983, in which Maharishi celebrated the 'rising sunshine of the Age of Enlightenment' for all of Africa in an assembly of many cultural and religious leaders and scientists.
Dr Crowell closed with a beautiful excerpt from Maharishi's historic address on that occasion in 1983:
'Now the real light of knowledge has dawned, and this light is being lit up by the enlightened custodians of intelligence, of consciousness, of life. And we will have such great blessings for the whole population of Africa in these rising waves of pure knowledge, that the infinite organizing power of nature inherent in the structure of pure knowledge will be the incoming and outgoing breath of every individual in the continent.'
