Leaders of the Global Country of World Peace are currently visiting Albania to advance the establishment of Maharishi Central University of Europe. The delegation, which includes Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Global Reconstruction, Dr Chris Crowell, Minister of Religion and Culture, and Dr Roger Audet, Chief Surveyor, was greeted by Raja Felix Kaegi, Raja (Administrator) of Invincible Albania, who is hosting the group during their visit.

Speaking from Lake Ohrid, Raja Felix described the stages of their visit, which included an initial stop in Tirana, the capital city of Albania, for meetings with top government leaders. They then travelled to the land allocated for the university on Lake Prespa, at the junction of Albania, Macedonia, and Greece. Raja Felix said, 'Here we will establish a centre of coherence for the 750 million people of Europe: Maharishi Central University of Europe, and the Global Parliament of Invincible Nations for World Peace. We will create a centre for 2,000 Maharishi Vedic Pandits from India and at least 1,000 students from around Europe, so that in total we will have 3,000 Yogic Flyers here permanently. This will ensure invincibility for every nation in Europe'.

Dr Bevan Morris gave a moving account of the tremendous natural beauty of the country, including the long-range views of mountains and the expansiveness of Lake Ohrid and Lake Prespa*, calling them 'geographical gems of Europe', and likening them to Lake Lucerne in Switzerland. Speaking of the land for Maharishi Central University of Europe, Dr Morris called it a 'land of massive magnitude and noble dignity'. He mentioned concerns to preserve the ecology of the lake area and his hopes that the university land could be re-forested, since many trees had been cut in the 1970s.

He appreciated the great progress being made in the country today, following a considerable period of struggle when the country was dominated by an atmosphere of fear.

Commenting on meetings with government leaders, Dr Morris said, 'They just wanted to help us. We heard subsequently when meeting with other leaders, that these top leaders of the country had spontaneously been telling people they really want Maharishi Central University to be established on Lake Prespa.' Dr Morris expressed his confidence that construction can begin very soon.

Dr Morris also described meetings with a mayor of a large area on Lake Prespa, who had previously spoken many times with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace. The mayor was deeply appreciative of Maharishi's efforts to help Albania, and Dr Morris mentioned many progressive steps the mayor is taking to improve his own city. Dr Morris found him to be an inspiring example of a new generation of coherent leadership, which gives great hope for the future of Albania.

Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Global Reconstruction for the Global Country of World Peace, presented beautiful drawings of proposed university facilities, with a Maharishi Tower of Invincibility at the highest point. He mentioned plans to incorporate sustainable energy technologies into the construction.

Dr Chris Crowell credited Maharishi University of Management in America for 'creating a record of excellence in education' which serves as a perfect model of ideal education when presenting the Global Country of World Peace programmes to governments in other countries. He said that it is due to the success of Maharishi University of Management that countries such as Albania are ready to welcome Maharishi Central University and Consciousness-Based Education programmes in order to create ideal education for their people.

It is the highest lake (altitude 2,798 ft/853 m) in the Balkans and is connected by underground channels with Lake Ohrid, which lies about 10 km (6 miles) to the west. Lake Ohrid, which spans an area of 130 sq miles (340 sq km), is the deepest lake in the Balkans.
