A representative of the Latin American Institute of Science, Technology, and Public Policy was invited to address a recent congress of mayors in San Salvador, El Salvador, on the topic of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes for society. The congress took place 23 - 24 November 2009.
The invitation arose in the wake of the September 2009 Latin American Mayors' Summit, through which many government officials from throughout the continent came to appreciate the benefits of Maharishi's programmes, reported Raja Jose Luis Alvarez, Raja of Invincible Latin American for the Global Country of World Peace, on Maharishi Global Family Chat*. The mayors of El Salvador expressed particular interest in the benefits of programmes for alleviation of violence and rehabilitation of criminal offenders, problems which plague the nation.
The representative from the Latin American Institute who presented at the San Salvador event was Dr Pedro Ojeda, National Director of Paraguay for the Global Country of World Peace. To the congress of 262 mayors, as well as El Salvador's president and other officials, Dr Ojeda spoke about Consciousness-Based Education, Maharishi Sthapatya Veda (Vedic Architecture), as well as programmes in rehabilitation, organic agriculture, and health.
In a recorded audio talk presented by Raja Luis in his report, Dr Ojeda reflected on the great receptivity to all this knowledge among the mayors at the El Salvador congress. He also noted a significant development stemming from the event in the field of education, that an official in a large regional education department in the country has agreed to incorporate Consciousness-Based Education into several schools.
'After this initial phase of three to four schools, we expect that all 430,000 students and 15,400 teachers in the region will learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme, and eventually the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme including Yogic Flying, so as to achieve invincibility for El Salvador,' added Raja Luis, commenting on Dr Ojeda's remarks.
He concluding by reiterating the resounding success of the El Salvador mayors' congress, and expects similar invitations will be extended to the Latin American Institute in the future.
* Raja Luis's report was featured on the 1 December 2009 Maharishi Global Family Chat, 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.
