Hello everybody, here you’re the forth and last part about the Maharishi Effect….
I’m waiting for your kind comments.

The Maharishi Effect
‘The achievement of this very simple, very effortless formula will be to
transform the society for all good. This is the achievement of this scientific
age—that a simple formula has come along whereby a small group of 7,000
in one place will maintain the sunshine of the Age of Enlightenment for all
The Physics of the Maharishi Effect
The phenomenon produced by the TM-Sidhi Programme of Yogic Flying gives the
experience of bliss, and generates coherence between consciousness and matter in
the body. EEG studies have shown that during this phenomenon, when the body lifts
up in the air, physiology and consciousness are completely integrated. This integration
takes place at the level of the Unified Field of Natural Law—the single underlying
field of intelligence, or consciousness, which lies at the basis of all diversity in
the physical world, as the ocean is the basis of all its diverse waves.
The Unified Field has the character of infinite correlation. An impulse of coherence
from this level instantly reconstructs and transforms unnatural, stressful, negative,
undesirable tendencies in the brain physiology, and brain functioning becomes coherent.
Considering this phenomenon in the light of the Unified Field Theories of modern
Physics and Quantum Cosmology, we understand that at the scale of Super Unification
all aspects of Natural Law at every point in the universe become infinitely
correlated with each other. A delicate impulse at any one point in space and time can
create a precipitous change throughout the entire universe. This long-range correlation
explains how action on the level of the Unified Field (the transcendental field of
consciousness), at the scale of Super Unification, can have a profound influence that
can spread anywhere and everywhere throughout the universe.
In this way the phenomenon of coherence created by groups of Yogic Flyers spreads,
neutralizing the negative tendencies in the whole society. An ancient expression
from the Vedic Literature beautifully expresses this:
Tat sannidhau vairatyåga˙
In the vicinity of coherence (Yoga), hostile tendencies are eliminated.
First Experiment to Create the Global Maharishi Effect
Inspired by the success of the TM-Sidhi Programme in reducing negativity and hostilities
in different regions of the world, in 1979 Maharishi held the first annual
World Peace Assembly to purify world consciousness. Assemblies were held year
after year on the international, national, and regional levels with many thousands of
Yogic Flyers coming together to raise world consciousness through the group practice
of Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme.
However, Maharishi explained that just as water only boils at 100 degrees centigrade,
only with the square root of one per cent of the world’s population, approximately
7,000, practising the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme
together in one place, would coherence be produced in world consciousness, leading
to world peace.
Therefore, in December 1983, Maharishi assembled for the first time more than
7,000 Yogic Flyers from all over the world to create global coherence in world consciousness
and thereby give the world a ‘Sample Taste of Utopia’. This experiment,
conducted at Maharishi International University (now Maharishi University of Management)
in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, from 17 December 1983 to 6 January 1984, was
the first experiment to create world peace through the Global Maharishi Effect.

Iowa, USA, 17 December 1983 to 6 January 1984.
Scientific Research Results
Scientific Research found that during the three weeks of this assembly there was a
marked decrease in hostilities and violence worldwide and increased positivity in
the international fields of politics and economics.
This was the assembly which clearly demonstrated the possibility of creating world
peace through the practice of Maharishi’s TM-Sidhi Technique of Yogic Flying. Later,
similar assemblies were held in The Hague, Holland, and Washington, DC, USA,
which confirmed the findings of the assembly.
Time-series analysis showed that during these assemblies, when the number of experts
in the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme approached or
surpassed 7,000, there were significant global reductions in international conflicts.
Statistics provided by the Rand Corporation showed that casualties and fatalities
due to international terrorism decreased an average of 72 per cent during the assemblies.
These studies used the most advanced and rigorous research designs and statistical
methodologies to precisely evaluate the effect of large coherence-creating groups
on standard sociological measures of the quality of life in cities, provinces, nations,
and the world.
The power of peace-creating groups to decrease warfare and terrorism has been
tested repeatedly. The results produced by temporary peace-creating groups (lasting
weeks or months) have been consistently positive—with nearly immediate reductions
in war deaths averaging better than 70%.
Wave of global peace: One large peace-creating assembly (8,000 experts) that continued
for several years (1988-90), created a history-transforming wave of peace
around the world. Major conflicts in the world came to an end—including the Soviet
invasion of Afghanistan, a seven-year war between Iran and Iraq that had killed millions,
and, most notably and unexpectedly, the Soviet-American Cold War that had
threatened the world with nuclear annihilation for forty years.
Scientific acceptance: Most of these studies have been carefully scrutinized by
independent scholars, then accepted for publication in mainstream academic journals.
The findings are based on open public data, with strong correlations between
peace-creating attendance and reduced social violence, lead-lag analysis supporting
a causal interpretation, and alternate possible explanations ruled out.
‘I think this research evidence on a new approach to peace, and the theory
that informs it, deserve the most serious consideration by academics, policy
makers, and concerned citizens alike.’

University of Texas (Austin), USA
Perpetuating the Global Maharishi Effect
The success of these assemblies confirmed the importance of continuing the momentum
of creating coherence and positivity in all parts of the world, by creating permanent
groups—on the local, national, and global level—who would not only prevent
global war, but in time would eliminate all conflicts on earth and create world peace
through the regular practice of Yogic Flying together in one place.
• On the local level, Maharishi is ensuring achievement of permanent world
peace through the creation of Peace Palaces, built according to the ancient
principles of Vedic Architecture, for the world’s largest 3,000 cities, which
will be home to a group of 100 to 200 peace-creating experts.
• Also, Maharishi’s Global Super Radiance Programme invites all who have
learnt Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme
to practice their programme in groups, morning and evening, to create an
indominatable influence of coherence in their area.
• On the national and also global level, courses and programmes continue
to be offered with the opportunity to create the Maharishi Effect through
extended practice of Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi
Programme. Most notable of these are the Maharishi Purusha Programme
and the Mother Divine Programme, permanent coherence-creating groups
founded by Maharishi to create an indomitable nourishing influence of coherence
in world consciousness.
• The centerpiece of Maharishi’s plan to create a perpetual Global
Maharishi Effect is the creation of a permanent group of 40,000 (growing
to 200,000) peace-creating experts on the banks of the Ganges River in
India. Such a group will be five times larger than any peace-creating
group yet gathered anywhere in the world. Since repeated research shows
that the peace-creating effect increases as the square of the number of
Yogic Flyers involved, this group will exceed all previous groups in peacecreating
power by 25 times.
‘The goal is to establish a Vedic Capital of Global Administration
through Natural Law, with the knowledge of Veda, total Natural
Law, as the Constitution for two hundred-thousand Vedic Pandits to
live their Vedic way of life—to create and maintain a strong, indomitable
influence of coherence in world consciousness, so that peace
and harmony prevail and the whole human race lives in perpetual
peace in a problem-free world—perpetual peace on earth.’
