Speaking on Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Richard Peycke, National Director of South Africa for the Global Country of World Peace, reported that students and school principals in the Durban area on the nation's east coast have begun learning the Transcendental Meditation Technique.

At one primary school, there are already 150 students practising Transcendental Meditation, as well as the principal and 10 other teachers. At a recent meeting organized by Dr Taddy Blecher, Director of Education for the Global Country of World Peace in South Africa, this principal spoke to 200 other school principals in the region, introducing them to the benefits of Transcendental Meditation for education. So far, 17 have learned the technique, with plans for students of those schools to learn soon. 'In a region with 800,000 of Indian descent—second only to India—the school leaders immediately recognized the value of Transcendental Meditation, and even regretted not having discovered the technique sooner,' commented Dr Peycke.

Dr Peycke believes that the success of these initiatives in Durban is a turning point for all of South Africa. 'Once the leaders of these schools have tasted the profound experience of Transcendental Meditation, we're sure that the word will spread widely throughout the nation.'
