Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA was honoured by the October visit of Dr Joaquim Chissano, the former President of Mozambique. Dr Bevan Morris, President of the university, welcomed President Chissano, and praised him as 'the most enlightened president of the modern historical era'.*
President of Mozambique from 1986-2005, Dr Chissano also served as President of the African Union, and as a UN Special Envoy. In 2007, he received the Mo Ibrahim Prize for Achievement in African Leadership. After retiring from office, he established a foundation to eradicate poverty, hunger, and conflict in Africa, which is headed by his nephew, a graduate of Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.).
In the early 1990s, President Chissano learnt about the programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi—scientifically verified approaches to create peace and invincibility in every nation. Said President Chissano, 'First I started Transcendental Meditation myself, then introduced the practice to my close family, my cabinet of ministers, my government officers and my military. The result has been political peace and balance in Nature in my country.'
Under his enlightened leadership, 13,000 soldiers learnt the Transcendental Meditation technique, and 3,000 went on to learn its advanced programmes—creating a powerful influence of coherence and harmony in national consciousness, bringing an end to the nation's long civil war.
Inspired by his visit to M.U.M., President Chissano intends to renew his efforts to promote Transcendental Meditation and related programmes to create invincibility around the world.
