MD, I was going to say that. But that was before I got interested in TM. All that I know is that the TM movement tried to buy one of the main universities in Manila to become the TMO's Vedic universities. But the Roman Catholic Church in the country made a very loud and concerted effort to stop the sale. Ferdinand Marcos, the dictator at the time, was intimidated and obeyed the Church's demands. Anyway, all of this happened, before I was initiated into TM, which was in 1993.

I ran in to someone here recently who deployed to Nicaragua in a peace project that came out of a solicitation that was made in a NYTimes advertisement by the Nicaragua government or parties from there to help end the civil war there in the 1980’s. Maharishi sent a team of meditators. Where else were groups of meditators sent in these projects?
