Tradition is still very important in Kumasi, Ghana, a city in the Ashanti region. 'Ashantis have maintained their culture and are very proud of exhibiting their culture,' said Dr Kwesi Orgle, director of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in Ghana.
He spoke about the traditional cultures and leaders in Kumasi in a report about Dr Bevan Morris's recent visit to the country.
Dr Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management, was in Ghana as part of his current 14-nation tour of Africa. He traveled to Kumasi in order to meet with a selection of traditional leaders who make up the statutory body which represents all traditional rulers in the country.
Dr Orgle remarked, 'Traditional rulership in Ashanti is still very strong . . . . This is the reason why we went up to Kumasi.'
In Kumasi, Dr Morris spoke to the group of rulers. 'These delegates assembled to hear Dr Morris present the key features by which Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes could be most effectively applied in their areas for maximum success,' said Dr Orgle, who was also present. 'They listened intently to Dr Morris as well as to Dr Chris Crowell, who called in during the seminar. They had very good questions to ask about Maharishi's technologies of consciousness.'
Dr Orgle continued, 'Dr Morris gave a very powerful presentation with compelling evidence, scientific research, and videos from other parts of the world which showed Transcendental Meditation being practised in schools.'
One of the traditional rulers is very elderly, but is still able to participate in meetings and rule effectively. 'He has already learnt Transcendental Meditation and is enjoying the practice,' said Dr Orgle.
He concluded, 'It was very nice to see how interactive the meeting was, with each chief contributing, asking questions, seeking clarification and already showing an interest in Maharishi's programmes.'
