Thakur S. Powdyel, a former Minister of Education in Bhutan, visited Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, in October and also spoke at several other Iowa schools including Grinnell College and Coe College.

In two presentations at MUM, Mr. Powdyel spoke about Gross National Happiness, an index that originated in Bhutan that is said to be more holistic than gross national product. In addition to a balanced social and economic development and the promotion of good governance, Gross National Happiness rests on protecting the environment and the nation's culture.

Mr. Powdyel praised MUM for its dedication to Consciousness-Based Education and its efforts to make the world a better place. ''Coming here I have discovered what it is that education ought to be doing,'' he said.
