I remember Mentmore Towers [UK] emptying of all the Perusha governors etc. who lived in it after they each raised some money and then they all popped off to the Philippines for a month or so. I was left to cook for just one person other than myself as far as I remember. I heard they swept through as much of the place as they could, teaching the locals for nothing (no charge). I think MMY treated Marcos the dictator with the dignity of a leader, then it seems Marcos had to flee soon after in 1986. However, this is not specifically down to people meditating because the People Power Revolution started in 1983 and the WGAOE lads (average age 30?) went after that. To be honest with you, I wasn’t sure of the times and dates because we had no TVs or newspapers or radios - there wasn't even a telephone in the British HQ for the World Government of the Age of Enlightenment! (I just had my copies of Science of CI, Bhagavad Gita [first 6 chapters by MMY], 'Living With the Himalayan Masters' and 'Autobiography of a Yogi').
Wasn't there one in the Philippines? ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : In former heady times using the facility of the TM movement to test the hypothesis of cultivating group consciousness Maharishi sent teams of TM meditators around the world to areas of conflict -like in to the Nicaragua conflict. 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?
