A New Year's Resolution: Create World Peace Through Vedic Defense

As we make our New Year's resolutions, is "create world peace" a realistic goal? Achieving world peace seems a daunting task, yet a simple solution lies within India's ancient Vedic heritage. What was once thought to be a Vedic myth of invincibility has been backed by extensive published peer-reviewed scientific research. And many nations are on their way to truly becoming invincible—radiating a powerful collective coherence of friendliness so strongly that they have no enemies. World peace through Vedic defense in 2008? Perhaps.

The Bhagavad-Gita reveals that, "He who is not established has no intellect, nor has he any steady thought. The man without steady thought has no peace; for one without peace, how can there be happiness?" Without inner happiness, an individual is not peaceful. When many individuals are unhappy and unhealthy, there is no peace in the world. (translated by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, 1990).

The Transcendental Meditation® (TM®) technique, as taught by Maharishi, has been scientifically shown to create inner peace: decreased anxiety and depression, increased self-actualization, and reduced stress. Research shows that the TM technique decreases muscle tension, decreases cortisol (the major stress hormone), normalizes of blood pressure, and increases EEG brain coherence (which leads to higher moral reasoning).

When enough people practice the TM program and its advanced techniques, peer-reviewed research shows that peace pervades society: hostility decreases, family harmony increases, and crime rates drop. This is called "The Maharishi Effect." Maharishi predicted this effect based on ancient Vedic literature, such as the Yog-Sutras, "Tat sannidhau vairatyagah. In the vicinity of Yogic influence—unifying influence, integrating influence, coherent and harmonious influence—conflicting tendencies do not arise."

The ancient city of Ayodhya was an ideal of Vedic defense. It achieved invincibility. The Ramayana of Valmiki describes Ayodhya as "The City none can challenge in warfare." While the city relied on traditional defense systems, the righteous, stress-free lifestyle gained by its meditating citizens purified the collective consciousness of the area, according to Valmiki, of which "...the brilliance...spread for four miles."

Today, new "Ayodhyas" are popping up around the globe due to rising collective consciousness. The countries of Bolivia, Columbia, The Netherlands, Peru and Trinidad and Tobago have established large enough groups of advanced practitioners of the TM program to create the Maharishi Effect and become invincible.

India may soon join this list. Major General (Retd.) Kulwant Singh, UYSM, Ph.D. and his colleagues are creating an advanced TM program coherence-creating group of 15,000 civilians near the center of India. When they succeed, scientists predict world conflict and terrorism will drop dramatically, just as when similar groups were assembled for short periods in the early 1980's. A peer-reviewed study using data provided by the Rand Corporation published in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation showed a 72% reduction in deaths due international terrorism and international conflict decreased 32% due to the coherence-creating groups.

Here in America, a large group of practitioners of the advanced TM-Sidhi technique have assembled permanently in Iowa. This includes Americans and a large group of Vedic Pandits from India. Additionally, when the Maharishi Academy of Total Knowledge in Antrim, New Hampshire, reaches its full capacity of 400 students, this college preparatory school for boys will create coherence for all the New England states.

Each person can use their own human nervous system to create coherence and harmony in their community and country by practicing the TM technique and its advanced programs. With these powerful programs, happiness, improved health, and prosperity are now available to everyone. World peace can easily become a living reality.
