As Predicted, Group of 1800 Meditation Experts
in Iowa Creates Coherent National Consciousness—
Transforms America

Fuels 5-Month Record-Breaking Boom in U.S. Stock Market,
Increasingly Robust U.S. Economy

Drives Down Oil Prices, Unemployment Rates, Inflation

Prior to the Invincible America Assembly, since January 3, 2000, the Dow decreased on average approximately 0.02% percent per week. However, immediately following the beginning of the Assembly on July 23, 2006, there was a statistically significant shift to a rapid, positive average rate of growth of 0.45% per week. Statistical analysis indicates that the probability of observing a change this large in the Dow’s rate of growth purely by chance is less than a few parts in 1000 (p = 0.016).
“This phenomenon is not wishful thinking. It is hard science that has been field tested for over 50 years and documented through more than 600 studies conducted at over 250 independent universities and research institutes throughout the world.” —John Hagelin, Ph.D., Director of the Invincible America Assembly

(MAHARISHI VEDIC CITY, IOWA December 26, 2006) Dr. John Hagelin announced during an international news conference today the dramatic results from the first five months of the Invincible America Assembly at Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa—the largest scientific demonstration project ever to monitor the effects of a large group of advanced meditation experts on national economic and social trends.

The Assembly was launched on July 23 by His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to create coherent national consciousness—the basis of a peaceful, prosperous, invincible country.

Since Maharishi’s launch, through December 22, the Dow Jones Industrial Index has climbed 14.5% while setting 21 all-time record highs, the S&P 500 Index has risen 15% to a six-year high while the Nasdaq Composite Index has soared 21.6% to a near six-year high. The unemployment rate is at a 5˝-year low of 4.4%, oil and gasoline prices are down 25%, consumer and investor confidence have jumped to their highest levels of the year, and the threat of inflation has dramatically and unexpectedly subsided.

At the same time, U.S. foreign policy has undergone a marked transformation—moving away from a rigid, confrontational approach towards consensus building and peace. For example, the U.S.-forged ceasefire on the Israeli-Lebanon border—a Mideast flashpoint for decades—is now in its fourth peaceful month. The U.S. has also taken a more flexible approach to resolving tensions with Iran and North Korea—while attempting to open improved channels of communication with once isolated Cuba and Venezuela.

Speaking from the Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, Dr. Hagelin, a world-renowned quantum physicist and director of the Invincible America Assembly, said that rigorous statistical analysis shows that the upsurge of positive economic trends—publicly predicted in advance—started when an initial group of 1200 experts in Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation program and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying, first assembled in Iowa from across the U.S. and around the world to create coherent collective consciousness—the basis of the ongoing national transformation.

Extensive published scientific research documents the Maharishi Effect

Extensive research published in leading, peer-reviewed scientific journals documents reduced negative trends, including reduced crime and violence, and improved economic and social trends—when as few as the square root of one percent of a population practice Yogic Flying together in a group.

Scientists named this phenomenon the “Maharishi Effect” after Maharishi, the renowned Vedic scholar who 50 years ago founded the Transcendental Meditation program, and who predicted the beneficial impact of group meditation on social trends as early as 1975.

Group of 2000 Yogic Flyers needed to make the nation invincible

Dr. Hagelin said that in recent days the number of Yogic Flyers in the Assembly increased to 1800—further intensifying the positive effect for the nation. And when the number of Yogic Flyers reaches the square root of one percent of the U.S. population (about 2000), there will be an even more dramatic improvement in national trends, and any lingering problems in the country will be quickly resolved.

“This is not wishful thinking,” said Dr. Hagelin, who also serves as the Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace. “This is hard science that has been field tested for over 50 years and documented through more than 600 studies conducted at over 250 independent universities and research institutes throughout the world.”

The Invincible America Assembly is being funded by an annual $12 million grant from the Howard and Alice Settle Foundation for an Invincible America.

The Supreme Knowledge

Maharishi received from his beloved Master,
His Divinity Swami Brahmanand Saraswati, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Himalayas

His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi dedicated the Global News Conference on December 20th to the Supreme Knowledge he received from his beloved Master, His Divinity Swami Brahmanand Saraswati, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Himalayas.

Maharishi expressed his satisfaction with the profound level of experience of higher states of consciousness which has been achieved by participants of the Invincible America Course°, and declared the awakening of a new level of experience—the level of Madhuchandas—the fully awake state of Transcendental Consciousness, known in the Vedic Tradition as the Devata level.

Maharishi quoted from a timeless verse from Rk Veda to describe this reality which is experienced by more and more individuals today who practise Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme:

'Richo Ak-share Parame Vyoman Yasmin Deva Adhi Vishwe Nishedhu Yastanna Veda Kim Richa Karishyati Ya It Tad Vidus Ta Ime Samasate.'

'All the impulses of Creative Intelligence reside in that unmanifest, indestructible field of Ak-kshara—the transcendental field of intelligence—the Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature. He whose awareness is not open to this reality (he who does not practise Transcendental Meditation), the existence of this reality—the existence of pure knowledge and its infinite organizing power—is of little use to him.'


For fifty years Maharishi has been teaching that the supreme goal of human life is to unfold this level of reality where the administration of the universe resides, and this experience, he said, is characterized by bliss.

'So we want to reside on that level where the Will of God is always awake, and that means handling the entire administration of the universe. There where the control of the infinite universe is based.... There is the superiority of human existence, and fortunately we are on the level of practically achieving this....the Will of God. And what is the Will of God? Man created in his own image....'

'Now I want everyone to come to that level of holiday. And this eternal holiday is the eternal state of Atma (the Self ). Ayam Atma Brahm (the Self of everyone, that is Brahm). So let's have that all-winning level of awareness and get to that level.' —Maharishi

Maharishi is looking today to see how many individuals can strike the door of Total Administration of the universe on this highest level now, and then he wants to give to them the understanding of this most exalted level of experience. It is good, he said, not to give the knowledge before the experience, but once the experience is there then Maharishi would give the complete understanding of it to the experiencer. Then absolutely anything can be accomplished, including perpetual world peace for all times in the future.

All that is necessary, Maharishi advised mankind, is to connect the ordinary waking state with the transcendental state through experience of Transcendental Meditation.

'In this we are doing justice to Guru Dev's knowledge.'—Maharishi
