For those instrumental in developing Consciousness-Based Education in South Africa, who grew up during the era of apartheid and saw Nelson Mandela turn his back on violence and hatred in order to promote unity and forgiveness, it was deeply moving that the first graduation at Maharishi Institute in Johannesburg occurred at the time of his passing.

When the Institute was established about six years ago, its administrators were inspired by the success of the programmes developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Consciousness-Based Education, to develop leaders and create peace and harmony for the nation.

Under the direction of Dr Taddy Blecher and Dr Richard Peycke, Maharishi Institute has grown and is flourishing, offering Consciousness-Based Education to several hundred students.

One of the Institute's founders commented that it was an historic time for the country to celebrate Mr Mandela's life, while at the same time hosting the Executive Vice President of Maharishi University of Management in the USA at the first Institute graduation, a milestone in fulfilling Mr Mandela's goals for the nation.
