Posts Record Gains
During First Week of Invincibility Course
Group of 1200 Yogic
Flyers in Washington, D.C., and Iowa
Creating a Coherent, Invincible Nation
“We Are Transforming
America Before the Eyes of the World—
Watch What Happens Tomorrow”
(July 29, 2006) The good news
is now in from the first week of the Invincible America Course.
The stock market soared this
week, posting its highest weekly gain in 14 months, and the price of oil
dropped sharply as the U.S. mobilized international support for a
Credit for this sudden and
unexpected upsurge of positive news goes to the 1200 peace-creating
experts assembled in Washington, D.C., and Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa,
who have been practicing Yogic Flying together in groups for the past
week to create coherent national consciousness—the basis for a more
positive, invincible America, according to world-renowned quantum
physicist Dr. John Hagelin, who is leading the Invincible America
Rising stock markets and
declining oil prices are strong indicators of growing optimism and
confidence in the country’s economic future. Experts predicted that the
upheaval in the Middle East would depress Wall Street and send oil
prices skyrocketing. To the surprise of most economists, the opposite
occurred. “This unshakeable national psychology is due to the
stabilizing influence of the Yogic Flyers on the collective
consciousness of the nation,” Dr. Hagelin said.
Dr. Hagelin said the good news
was predicted publicly in advance based on 30 years of published
scientific research on the collective effects of the Transcendental
Meditation program and its more advanced Yogic Flying technique.
“The research proves that as
little as the square root of one percent of the population of a country
practicing Yogic Flying together in a group is sufficient to reduce
negative trends and strengthen positive social and economic tendencies
throughout the entire population,” said Dr. Hagelin, who serves as the
Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at
Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.
Dr. Hagelin explained that the
number of Yogic Flyers required to produce this coherent effect for the
United States is 1730. However, he said, the initial group of 1200
experts is more than enough to create a calming, stabilizing effect in
“As the number of Yogic Flyers
rises to 2000 in the coming days, the world press will be reporting
better and better economic and social news. We are transforming the
nation before the eyes of the world. I urge the press to watch what
happens tomorrow,” Dr. Hagelin said.
Billionaires Invited to
Make Their Nations Invincible
Employ 500 to 1000
Yogic Flyers to
Create Coherent Collective Consciousness
for a Problem-Free, Sovereign Country
“You Will Be Crowned
True Ruler of Your Nation”
(August 25, 2006) His Holiness
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi this week invited the world’s billionaires to make
their nations invincible by employing 500 to 1000 people in the country
to practice Transcendental Meditation and its more advanced Yogic Flying
technique, and thereby create coherence in collective consciousness—the
basis of true freedom, sovereignty, and invincibility for the nation.
“Here is a beautiful invitation
for any billionaire to transform the nation from problems and suffering
to affluence and peace through the science and technology of total
Natural Law. Here is an invitation for any billionaire to be crowned as
the true ruler of his country,” Maharishi said.
Extensive scientific research
published in the world’s leading journals has found that group practice
of Yogic Flying by a small number of people in the country (as few as
the square root of one percent of the population) is enough to reduce
negative trends, including crime and violence, and promote positive
economic and social tendencies throughout society.
The cost to train and employ
the group of Yogic Flyers in the country will be a tiny fraction of what
any government spends on its military in a single day.
Maharishi’s approach to
invincibility is in sharp contrast with the conventional military
approach. “Our approach does not require the government to sacrifice the
youth for the sake of the nation—because when the youth are killed in
war, then for whom is the nation?” Maharishi said.
Maharishi emphasized that even
if no billionaires immediately accept the invitation, there are two
additional viable approaches to make the nation invincible:
1. Five hundred to a thousand
ordinary citizens in a country can be trained in Yogic Flying. They can
then lease a hall and practice Yogic Flying together every day to raise
their nation to invincibility.
2. Parents with children who
are having difficulties with conventional learning can have their
children trained in Yogic Flying, and through their group practice of
the technique, the children will create integrated, invincible national
“Now the wealthy citizens or
the ordinary citizens or the children who do not enjoy learning can
raise their country to invincibility,” Maharishi said.
Groups of Yogic Flyers are
already engaged in creating coherent national consciousness in 15
nations, including Holland and America, where both countries are
enjoying a dramatic and sustained upsurge in positive economic and
social trends. Similar invincibility groups will soon be under way in 40
“The time has come for every
country to crown one person—or a group of people—who will assume the
parental responsibility to raise the nation to invincibility,” Maharishi
Highlights From Press Conference
August 2, 2006
Maharishi: ‘Jai Guru Dev. There are always two
things: one is heating and the other is cooling—heating and cooling. We
have the program for cooling. If the cooling program is not powerful,
then the heating program is powerful.
‘All these destroying capabilities are there when there are not enough
people to favor saving, which we have found in the words our Dr Eike
Hartmann uses: “Peace-creating homes, fulfillment-creating homes,
health-creating homes, positivity-creating homes, integration-creating
homes”. All these different qualities, which are desirable and which
help life to enjoy, all are in the words “fortune-creating homes” and
‘A great majority of the population of the world, ninety-nine per cent,
does not know that the houses that they live in have a quality of life
to offer to them—to their children, to their relationships, and all
that. So we have a plan to reconstruct the world—for reconstruction of
the world. As long as the people in the world are living in non-Vastu
buildings—that means misfortune-creating buildings—then the influence of
the building that they live and work in will have that effect: of
creating misfortune. So whatever they do, they are surrounded by the
influence of misfortune.
‘What can they do? Their father built a house, and they are living in
that. It is such a beautiful house with all nice things about it. But
the quiet character of the layout of the house is non-Vastu. “Non-Vastu”
means it is not certified by Natural Law: Natural Law does not certify
that house for those who want to have a fortune-creating character in
their life. Either fortune-creating or misfortune-creating—as long as
they are living in a misfortune-creating house, misfortune will be at
their door. You can put yourself in the flame, and there will be the
result. Or you can put yourself in the cool air, cool water, cool this,
cool that. So, from Nature’s side, there is an option. It has given you
the freedom to choose. You choose what you like.
‘In a country, it is not one man; it is the collective consciousness of
the country that creates whatever is happening somewhere on a collective
level—the decisions of a country. Now, in this case, the decision of
anyone—what he says—is because he is a spokesman of the collective
destiny of the nation, the collective influence of the nation. He is a
spokesman for that. So it is not the individual; it is the collective
‘How is it the collective consciousness? Obviously we know, so we can
say what the cause is. The cause is that people are living in
uncertified buildings—uncertified by Natural Law. Natural Law certifies
those buildings which have a proper orientation—north, south, east,
west—and entrances all in the east and north. These are the laws. If one
does not obey the laws, then lawlessness is always a punishable offense
by Natural Law. There is no negotiating, no persuasion. It is the
reality of life and living. On one side, we have the whole perspective
of life: life is infinity, unboundedness, Totality, Brahm. Life is that.
On the other side, it is the opposite to that. Both things are there.
‘We know we want to reconstruct life on earth. Life will not be
reconstructed just by anything or anyone—all sorts of people are there.
The basic things for life are the mind, the body, and the house one
lives in. And the laws are there. With regard to the house, if you
construct the house one way it will be fortune-creating. If you distort
the original design, it will become misfortune-creating. Just by a wall
on this side or on that side, a door on this side or on that side, it
can become a fortune-creating home or a misfortune-creating home.
‘Without the knowledge of the totality of Natural Law, life is lived in
a very hodgepodge manner. The mind is not trained to function properly.
The body—eyes are not trained to see properly, ears are not trained to
hear properly. All this training is not there. That means beastly life.
All the beasts—hundreds of species on the earth, in the water, in the
air—live that part of life; they live that part of life, either in water
or in air or on earth or in the forest. This is how they behave.
‘For the world to have a fortune-creating character, houses have to be
reconstructed—period. The mind has to function from the transcendental,
self-referral level, where it can accomplish its purpose. The mind, when
it does not accomplish its desired goals, becomes frustrated, and
creates a nuisance in the atmosphere. So the mind has to be good; the
body has to be perfectly healthy; behavior has to be holistically
soothing to everyone. Behavior should be health creating, freedom
generating; then it will be coherent in character.
‘We have the knowledge. We have developed it. Fortunately, we have the
tradition of knowledge. The knowledge is there, only we are not using
it. Now, we want to use it. We want to open schools and colleges for the
training of the mind and the training of the body for a healthy body and
a healthy mind where the thought will be quickly materialized. We will
build fortune-creating homes.
‘Dr Eike’s department in our Global Administration is to provide
fortune-creating homes—period. There is nothing much to discuss. Either
one would live in a fortune-creating home or continue to live in a
misfortune-creating home. And a misfortune-creating home will lead you
to all kinds of rubbish in life—to a negative life—for yourself and all
your followers and all that. It is not just the individual; it is the
‘We have adopted the formula of a few people—a few hundred or one
thousand somewhere, depending on the population of a country. “Country”
means governed by the culture of the area. We must build five hundred
homes in each country, which will be very easy to do, and we have
started to do it. And we are satisfied that, slowly, slowly, things are
coming up—the expected results are coming up. When we transfer a man
living in a misfortune-creating home to a fortune-creating home,
suddenly he sees the darkness of the night is over. Good days are
coming; he is blossoming every day; his business is better; his family
is healthier. Everything is better and better and better.
‘The practice of Transcendental Meditation is to
have the mind at the full capability of man’s mind. And man is made in
the image of God, capable of functioning in the light of God. And the
light of God is always affluence, fulfillment, bliss, no
suffering—absolutely no suffering. |
‘So this is what we are doing. And we see even a thousand people in some
country shifting from non-Vastu buildings to Vastu buildings, changing
their homes from being misfortune creating to fortune creating—just
this. A thousand people are just nothing. A small country is four
million people, but this is nothing for a thousand people to begin to
live. So that we have adopted.
‘It is very easy to have self-referral consciousness become a living
reality of daily life with school children. Children of eight, ten,
twelve, fourteen years: they will just learn what the parent will teach.
So parents will teach them how to experience inner happiness, which is
the source of all activity. So we will open schools and let the children
experience that for the two, three, four, five, six years of the
children’s elementary or secondary or whatever level of school they go
to. Then the next generation will be a fortune-creating generation, a
healthy generation—all automatic, complete.
‘Just as it is easy to bring the light to a dark room by just lighting
the candle—simply lighting the candle—like that it is easy to transform
the misfortune-creating situation of the people into a fortune-creating
system. The same country which is a destroyer today will become a savior
or a helper tomorrow.
‘Regarding a nation, if a government, decides something, it is not one
man who decides; it is the national consciousness which speaks through
one man. So any country that is a destroyer today will always remain a
destroyer of life, as long as we have not changed the living conditions.
Give them fortune-creating homes to live in, and they will begin to be
fortune creating. As long as they are living in misfortune-creating
homes, they must be fighting with each other.
‘In all those countries where the people are fighting, or the government
is fighting, if you look to the homes, each home member or family member
has a bitter feeling inside about his brother, about his sister, about
his mother, about his father, about his neighbor, about his teacher.
They are critical inside. So the whole thing has to be redone. And that
will be redone through our education programs for the children, our
program for providing them fortune-creating homes, and our program for
developing higher states of consciousness.
‘They should know in which direction to sit, in which direction to live.
They should know there are etiquettes: how to behave with father, with
mother, and with this and this—they are all there. We must teach them
holistic knowledge, Total Knowledge, and give them proper homes to live
properly in, fortune-creating homes—just these two words,
“fortune-creating” homes. For the mind, the body is the home. A
misfortune-creating body is a sick body, unhealthy body, suffering body.
These are all the different aspects of knowledge. We have enough
‘Anyone who expects light, he would expect the light to come from some
man who holds the torch—who has the light. Therefore, if we have the
light, we are expected to bring an end to the darkness. As long as there
is darkness, we are at fault, because are not radiating light. If we
have the light, we should radiate the light. This is what our Movement
has been doing around the world for the last fifty years.
‘This fifty-year old foundation is quite enough
for a wealthy, very healthy, very progressive, very divine, very
fulfilling, very integrated, very invincible life of human society. This
is what we are going to do. We are going to do; we are going to do; we
are going to do. And lots of evidence is there that we are on the right
path. We continue to do, continue to do. And soon we will be able to
build four hundred, five hundred, one thousand rooms somewhere for
people to live and practice Transcendental Meditation in. And the
success of that is in body lifting up in Yogic Flying.|
‘Yogic Flying is not just a phenomenon which can be ignored. Here is the
evidence that the mind has become so powerful that one spur of the mind
can take the body up in the air—directly in the air. It means something;
it is not just nothing. This is not gossip. We are not playing with
gossip. We are playing with cosmic facts. The lifting up of a body is
not a joke.
‘The lifting up of a body is by what? By nothing, except the fine spur
of the mind. This is Yogic Flying. A fine spur of the mind throws the
body up. That is the proof that the mind is capable of managing anything
that it likes. The Yoga Sutras are for flying—through the flying
impulse. The desire is, “The body should fly.” Immediately the body
flies up. This kind of fulfillment of desire is completely available to
everyone, and we have been shouting this from our housetops for years.
Those who hear it, they take it, and they are better off. They will be
better off, and they will make a better world.
‘Like that, we are now focusing on countries, and collecting small
groups of flyers—two thousand somewhere, one thousand somewhere, five
hundred, two hundred, four hundred, depending on the population of the
country. And those countries will be better off.
‘We have a turnkey operation. Wherever we are turning the key, the door
opens. Our turning the key depends on a few people doing what we say. We
say, “Close the eyes,” they close the eyes. We say, “Open the eyes,”
they open the eyes [laughter]. It is a simple thing.
‘But all is now on one thing—on the fate. What is your destiny? You can
go to hell or go to heaven; both are open to you. You have a turnkey
operation for hell on one side; you have a turnkey operation for heaven
on the other side. Our advice to the people is that you are born at a
time where Total Knowledge is up. We have teachers of Transcendental
Meditation and its advanced technique, Yogic Flying. These are the
different administrative passages for us to administer society so that
nobody has any misfortune to face, that is all. That is going to be our
world; that is going to be our family of nations. And that will be soon.
‘It is not going to take much time now. As long as
it has not happened, as long as fortune-creating homes are not available
to everyone—as long as they are living in misfortune-creating homes—they
must fight and must suffer and must die and must cry, that is all. So it
‘Dr Hagelin, in your advice to the world press, to the people of the
world, you speak the language of science. I have been speaking the
language of Transcendental Meditation, which is the language of the
Constitution of the Universe. But gradually, gradually, during the past
years, the physical sciences have come to explore the holistic value of
Natural Law—the wholeness of Natural Law. Then the language of science
started to repeat the language of the Vedic Science. “Vedic Science”
means science of knowledge.
‘Today, that expression of the transcendental, self-referral value,
which is beyond words—”transcendental” means beyond words—the
Constitution of the Universe, is written out in the language of the
Veda, which is the language beyond words. It is a language beyond words,
because it has both things together: yes and no together, multiplicity
and unity together. It is holistic. “Holistic” means holistic, the total
thing—total thing together.
‘It is good we are spending some time on this. We absolutely know that
these talks of ours are not going to rebuild the world. Our world will
be rebuilt by the influence that we cherish amongst ourselves in our own
self-referral consciousness during our own morning and evening practice.
That is our field from where the world will be nourished.
‘The world will not be nourished by the press people reporting, “This is
happening; this is happening; this is happening.” It is a waste of
energy for the press. It is a waste of energy from our side. We say it
is beastly. It is a beastly habit; it is a beastly performance. We know
it is beastly. They think, oh, they are wise; they are wise to destroy
the evil. The whole thing is very interesting.
‘Those who are press writers today, were not even born fifty years ago
when the Movement was born. But we keep on educating them, and keep on
creating these effects. We are in an effect-creating
phase—effect-creating phase. Give them houses to live in, perfect
fortune-creating homes, fortune-creating minds, and a fortune-creating
‘The body is the home of mind. The house is the home of the body, and if
it is not in accordance with the divine character of reality, then it is
not divine. We do not want to say anything more on that. We are going to
reconstruct the world, and very soon it is going to happen. Tell the
Jai Guru Dev
