The Invincible Africa Knowledge Series—being offered across the continent this year for the first time, during the Golden Jubilee of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes in Africa—is giving people in many countries a new understanding of the complete range of knowledge Maharishi brought out to benefit Africans and their nations, in the 50 years of his teaching in the world.
Please see a previous article about the first three sessions in the Invincible Africa Knowledge Series: New knowledge series celebrates Maharishi's gift of Total Knowledge for Africa.
The series continues with historic addresses by Maharishi from 1993 and 2005.
The fourth session features Maharishi's Offer to the World: Supreme Knowledge for Every Area of Society to Rise to Enlightenment, given in MERU, Netherlands, in July 1993. On this occasion Maharishi honoured President Joaquim Alberto Chissano of Mozambique for his enlightened leadership and pioneering vision in implementing Maharishi's programmes to create national invincibility for his country.
President Chissano, one of Africa's most outstanding and successful leaders, had learned Transcendental Meditation and introduced it to his family and government ministers, prior to implementing it on a large scale through a large group practising the technique in the military. President Chissano was visiting MERU at this time in 1993 and reported on the success of these initiatives in ending the civil war, creating harmony and political peace in the nation, and bringing balance in nature.
The fifth address by Maharishi is from October 2005 in MERU, Netherlands: Maharishi Celebrates Victory of the Constitution of the Universe: Raising the Flags of Peace for All Cultures and Languages, MERU, Netherlands. In his address Maharishi said that the science and technology of total Natural Law—groups of people practising Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying—is the key to creating permanent world peace:
'There is nothing random in this scientific age. You press a button and instantly the work is done—you achieve the results. The science and technology of total Natural Law, which administers the infinite diversity of the universe with perfect order, is that same press-button operation in which the action for peace and the effect of creating of peace are immediate—there is no delay. . . . It is just a matter of a few groups of individuals applying it within their own Self to produce an immediate global effect.'
In addition to the five historic lectures by Maharishi, the sixth session in the Invincible Africa Knowledge Series features The Application of the Transcendental Meditation Programme for the Education, Health and Promotion of Peace in Africa—Gotabgaa Conference 2010. The Gotabgaa Conference is a large annual gathering of Kenyans living in the US and other countries; this series of presentations by leading scientists and experts in Maharishi's programmes was given at the conference in Washington, DC in June 2010.
The 2010 Gotabgaa Conference also received a special message from President Chissano, who spoke of his practice of Transcendental Meditation and encouraged all the participants to learn about its benefits from the conference presentations, and share with their countrymen this simple practice to reduce stress and find peace within themselves, in their relationships within their communities, and among all the people in their nation.
Global Good News will feature more about the 2010 Gotabgaa conference, including President Chissano's message.
