Just a few years ago, 12-year-old Camilo Estrada was one of many thousands of displaced children living on the streets of Medellin, Colombia. Then he heard about Father Gabriel Mejia's Fundacion Hogares Claret, which provides shelter for homeless children.

There he learned Transcendental Meditation, and after completing his rehabilitation programme, Camilo became a certified addictions counselor and therapeutic community operator.

''I don't know if I would be alive if I hadn't gotten into the Foundation,'' he said. ''I experienced how powerful Transcendental Meditation was, especially the way we apply it for treatment. . . . TM makes it easier to recover from addictions. Those who meditate have more success in treatment and in life.''

His life changed even more when he received a scholarship to enrol at Maharishi University of Management to study health and physiology, including Maharishi Ayurveda health care. After he graduates, Camilo plans to return to Colombia and create Maharishi Ayurveda Health Centers for the children in Father Gabriel's rehabilitation centres.
