Former President of Mozambique, Dr Joaquim Chissano, paid a surprise visit to Maharishi Invincibility Institute in Johannesburg, South Africa in October. He spoke to the students about his experience of using Transcendental Meditation to create peace in Mozambique in the 1990s.
At that time he introduced Transcendental Meditation to 13,000 soldiers, of whom 3,000 went on to learn the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying.
Dr Chissano credits Transcendental Meditation with having created political peace in his country after decades of civil war. Now, as a respected elder statesman, he is travelling around Africa to encourage creative approaches to conflict resolution, of which Transcendental Meditation is one.
Dr Chissano spoke to the Maharishi Invincibility Institute students about Transcendental Meditation and about Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, which he also visited in October. He asked the Institute's students to relate their own experiences of Transcendental Meditation, which they did in glowing terms.
'The whole visit was very enjoyable and inspiring,' says Dr Richard Peycke, National Director of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in South Africa, who hosted President Chissano's visit.
