Up Ethiopia: Government, business leaders learn about Maharishi's programmes Slideshow

14 April 2012

On his arrival in Ethiopia recently, Dr Bevan Morris, President of Maharishi University of Management, was welcomed by Kibre Dawit, a 'venerable' teacher of Transcendental Meditation who had been instructing people in the technique since 1972. This vast experience in Ethiopia made Ms Dawit well suited to showing Dr Morris around and arranging meetings and lectures for him across the country, he said.

Dr Morris visited Ethiopia as one of the last stops on his 14-country Africa tour. The tour, honouring 50 years of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes and technologies of consciousness on the continent, aims to awaken new interest among government leaders in applying them to rapidly reduce problems and strengthen social coherence in each country and the continent as a whole.

Maharishi first came to Ethiopia in 1973 with the goal of creating a peaceful and invincible Africa. He arrived in Addis Ababa, the capital of the country, to instruct a large course of people learning to become teachers of Transcendental Meditation. (read more)
