Speaking on a recent Maharishi Global Family Chat, Raja Bob LoPinto, Raja of South Africa for the Global Country of World Peace, said that during his recent visit to South Africa he visited the Johannesburg Maharishi Invinciblity Centre* in Houghton. Raja LoPinto said that 'it was a delight to meet with all the practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, one of whom had recently become a Teacher of Transcendental Meditation and now works at the Maharishi Invincibility Institute in Johannesburg.'
Two students from the Maharishi Invincibility Institute have now become Teachers, and the goal is to inspire more students at the Institute to become Teachers. 'It is really such a delight to see these students who are taking such leadership roles,' said Raja LoPinto. Many of the students are coming forward, wanting to lead, so they plan to have more students from the Maharishi Institute on the next Transcendental Meditation Teacher Training Course 'to take us into the next generation'.
Raja LoPinto continued his Global Family Chat presentation showing slides of the students on the Teacher Training Course, which has 10 course participants from various countries in Africa, including South Africa, and the Middle East. This was a highlight of Raja LoPinto's trip, he said, 'because the students are so dedicated, so focussed and devoted; their attention is so clear, it was a wonderful thing for me to be there'.
Another highlight was the opportunity to perform Puja [traditional Vedic ceremony of gratitude] 'with this very wonderful group'.
Raja LoPinto showed slides of the facility where the Teacher Training Course is taking place. It is a warm, rich environment, looking across to beautiful mountains. Raja LoPinto said he felt Maharishi's inspiration there in the gathering with all of the Teacher Training Course students. 'It was wonderful.'
* Maharishi Invincibility Centres in the major cities around the world offer the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, to create enlightenment for every individual and invincibility for every nation. This is achieved by raising individual and collective consciousness through individual and group practice of the Vedic Technologies of Consciousness brought to the world by Maharishi, including his Transcendental Meditation Programme.
