During his most recent tour of Africa Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management in the USA, visited a number of countries in the southern and central regions where Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes for individual and societal health, Consciousness-Based Education, and world peace have been introduced during the last few years. One of the countries he visited was Tanzania, which he described as 'one of the most beautiful places on earth'.
Dr Morris's visit came several years after another international expert in Consciousness-Based Education visited Tanzania—Dr Ashley Deans, for many years Executive Director of Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in the USA, who serves as Global Ambassador for Consciousness-Based Education. In a series of lectures and presentations Dr Deans inspired many Tanzanians about Transcendental Meditation and other scientifically validated programmes and technologies of consciousness developed by Maharishi.
Reporting on his current tour, Dr Morris described some of the steps of progress through which Consciousness-Based programmes are being adopted by professionals, students, and members of the public.
A number of women in the northern part of the country who have learned Transcendental Meditation are eager to start Consciousness-Based Education schools. Another group of mothers in a nearby city would like to see Consciousness-Based Education implemented in local schools, to give their children an ideal education.
A group of 25 computer science students in the country have learned Transcendental Meditation. During his visit Dr Morris presented the students with diplomas for their studies.
At a medical school in Dar Es Salaam, Dr Morris spoke to a group of psychiatrists about research on mental health benefits of Transcendental Meditation. Many in the audience expressed keen interest in learning more about the meditation technique and how it could be useful in their profession.
While in Dar Es Salaam Dr Morris was invited to speak on the International French Radio. During the programme he discussed how Maharishi's programmes could benefit the country.
The director of the Transcendental Meditation organization in Tanzania is a Pentecostal pastor, Pastor Norbert. Pastor Norbert explained that before learning Transcendental Meditation he had health issues, which were resolved after he began practising the technique. Now that he is healthy, and his good health has endured, members of the congregation as well as other religious leaders have become interested in learning TM.
Dr Morris also mentioned that two women from Tanzania are currently on a training course in Thailand to become certified as teachers of Transcendental Meditation, and will be returning to teach in Arusha and Dar Es Salaam; and one young man will be attending the next training course.
