There is a long tradition of knowledge in Cyprus, extending back to antiquity—from the Greeks and Romans, to the Phoenician and Ottoman Empires. This beautiful island has been under many foreign influences. Now the intention is to create a group of 100 Yogic Flyers to transform the destiny of the nation to coherence, harmony, and invincibility.

Raja Paul Potter, Raja of Invincible Cyprus for the Global Country of World Peace, and Dr Fred Travis, Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition, recently visited both southern and northern Cyprus, where Dr Travis gave presentations on the benefits of Transcendental Meditation for brain integration.

Ten years ago, 2,000 people learnt Transcendental Meditation in southern Cyprus, and many hundreds have also learnt in northern Cyprus. In the past, many high-level contacts were made in education and the government by leaders of the Global Country of World Peace, and now the tradition of knowledge is being reawakened on the island, Raja Paul reported recently.*

'The intention is to create a group of 100 Yogic Flyers for the very visible transformation of the destiny of the nation,' he said.

In southern Cyprus, Dr Travis spoke to many college and university students and faculty, giving deep insights into the value of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Vedic approach to knowledge and its verification through modern science. Government and UN officials were also invited to this presentation. One official was especially appreciative of the possibility of generating much-needed coherence—for his own involvement in creating peace for the nation, and for politicians to have a basis for making clear and effective decisions.

In northern Cyprus, the delegation met leaders of four universities who had been introduced to Transcendental Meditation ten years ago. There was great interest among principals, deans, and members of the Department of Education in Consciousness-Based Education. Dr Travis was interviewed by a local newspaper, and an article about his background, his presentation, and research has now been published.

As a result of this visit by Raja Paul and Dr Travis, the local practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme are now organizing to meet and practise together, to create invincibility for the island.

* Raja Paul, along with Dr Theodore Pizanis and Dr Albert Baruh—National Directors for Transcendental Meditation in south and north Cyprus respectively—spoke on the 9 December Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also now available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
