A delegation from Maharishi University of Management (MUM) visited Mongolia for about a week to talk to schools and universities about Consciousness-Based Education. While there, they also gave a presentation about Transcendental Meditation to which the general public was invited, and met with local people who had already learned the technique.
The group included Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management; Dr Fred Travis, MUM neuroscientist; and Professor Lonnie Gamble, curriculum director for the Sustainable Living department.
Following fruitful meetings at several educational institutions, the delegation gave a public introductory lecture on Transcendental Meditation. Among the popular topics discussed were brain functioning, brain research, the full potential of human consciousness, and full use of the brain.
At the lecture, the hall was full, with more than 400 people in attendance.
There were many questions at the lecture, but what the audience really wanted to know about was the correlation between Transcendental Meditation and enlightenment.
'Everyone wanted to hear about the full development of human consciousness and the full vision of possibilities' offered by the Transcendental Meditation programme, said Dr Tom Stanley, vice-chair of the MUM Board of Trustees and director of Consciousness-Based programmes in Mongolia.
He added that when he discussed Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's explanation that there are seven states of consciousness, culminating in enlightenment, and that Transcendental Meditation helps to accelerate this process, the whole audience broke into a cheer.
The group also held a meeting in the capital city of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar, with people who practise Transcendental Meditation. The core of the meeting was a presentation by Dr Morris about developments in Consciousness-Based Education, Transcendental Meditation, and other programmes Maharishi established around the world. He showed a number of photos and videos to illustrate 'all of the tremendous and extraordinary progress' in many countries, Dr Stanley said.
The meeting lasted 1.5 hours longer than scheduled, he said, 'because everyone was so interested to see reports from around the world and the video clips that [Dr Morris] has of all the progress everywhere.'
