February 2006 Press Conference Highlights
Guru Dev. We analyse our activity, and we analyze every day and night, all the time, what the effect of it is in the world. We see that our knowledge is
so profound, so simple to adopt, and so easy of operation for any country
and every country. We have been inviting the governments and all that,
but we see that it is delayed. So, for the past month, we have been
trying to see how many countries we can adopt. Adopting means we take
the responsibility for its well-being, for its growth, for its prosperity,
peace, and everything.
‘We are in a position, on the level of principle, to adopt every
country. Now we are thinking of how many we should focus on—a real
focus. Maybe we should focus on, say, twenty, thirty countries or ten,
twenty countries. But we want to focus very heavily with all the resources
we have on whatever responses we have.
‘With all this, I think ten, twelve, twenty countries we can adopt.
We are going to make this decision just now. And from tomorrow, we will not abandon our Movement in other countries, but we will focus
our energies in a few countries and create heaven on earth there. Then,
next month and next month and next month, we'll be adopting countries now, adopting countries.
It is a great idea of the silence that the silence should openly adopt
the dynamism which is concealed within it.
‘So the world press will hear next week which ones we have adopted
and what we expect to get. It is not a matter of what we expect to get;
it is a matter of getting it, proving it, having it in hand. The
ball of invincibility on the ground of every country we want, but we will have
a few countries now.
‘We are examining what course we take. We are sure whatever
we do will raise the whole and will have its influence on the whole world.
While the size of the lamp is not so much, the size that it spreads
its light is quite a lot. That is the great hope I am giving today to
the world press.’
of Yogic Flying
Morris: ‘Thank you very much, Maharishi. Maharishi, could
you explain to the world press how Yogic Flying in groups is an integral
part of this programme of the adoption of a country? How can a very small
number of people practising Yogic Flying together create an effect that
could change the destiny of millions of people? What are the mechanics
mechanics are very minute. Minuter than the minutest are the mechanics,
and being minuter than the minutest, absolutely smaller than the smallest,
where the whole thing is so small that it is equal to nothing.
‘The field of the unmanifest, the grains—if there are grains—the
grains of immortality, which structure, which weave the field of infinity
because they are so minute, are capable of being everywhere, everywhere, everywhere. Total
Natural Law is in such minute measures that it is beyond time, beyond space,
beyond limitations. And being beyond limitations, it is everywhere, everywhere.
‘So we are dealing with the nature of the unmanifest. For the press,
it will be amusing to see, to hear, that you are dealing with a zero—a
big zero or a minute zero—but it is zero. It is the emptiness
of a banyan seed, hollowness. The whole concrete tree is very well secured
and situated within the hollowness of the banyan seed. And that is why it
is easy to handle the grace of infinity, because you are everywhere—you don't have to go anywhere.
‘This is what Yogic Flying is. In Transcendental Meditation, its
advanced techniques, and now Yogic Flying, a very minute impulse
of the mind is able to lift up the body. The mind is functioning on a
level where everything is a possibility. The mind wants, “I want
to lift up the body” and the body cannot remain enforced by gravity.
It's a challenge to gravity; it just comes up.
‘The world press should know that the command over gravity is a
very natural situation for the practitioners of Transcendental Meditation
and its advanced techniques. When the flying sutra comes, immediately
the whole weight of the body lifts up in the air. This is the authority
of that finest state of the mind. When the mind is in its self-referral
state, transcendental state, then that mind is in tune with total Natural
Law, which is the total Constitution of the Universe.
‘A small number of the people—very small—will do the
trick. We are going to adopt so many countries and create Yogic Flyers.
The groups of Yogic Flyers we create will generate highly intensified
coherence in the national consciousness. This highly intensified coherence
in the national consciousness will make the national consciousness invincible
in its total freedom—invincible.
‘We have been singing the song of invincibility for a few weeks.
Now we want to sing the tune aloud and create intense effects in a few
countries. Then, having done those few countries, another set of
few countries next month, next month, next month. So now it’s a
matter of months and weeks and days for the fortunate countries to rise
to invincibility and create heaven on earth in their countries.
‘Tell the world press that the time for them has come. A few weeks
ago, we told them that the arrow has left the bow. And that is it now
now: we are adopting countries after countries after countries. It's a beautiful
time for the Movement.
‘We can take one more question and finish it off, because I am busy
adopting countries. I am going to enter into the ceremony with His Majesty
Raja Raam and all the Rajas and Ministers of the Global Country of World
Peace who are here in Europe and who are there in the World Capital of
Peace in India, which they established last month.
‘And bring them [news] in five minutes about the activities of the World Peace Capital
in India. And our geniuses—top leaders—are busy everywhere. Tell them and try to finish in fifteen, twenty minutes. I have very little time to speak now.’
Morris: ‘Yes, Maharishi, very good.’
[Dr Morris speaks.]
The Role of the Vedic Pandit Performances
Morris: ‘Maharishi, perhaps one last question before we
close. You have mentioned that the Vedic Pandits of India will be directly
involved in this adoption of the different countries that you have just
described. Could you explain what the role of the Vedic Pandits will be?
And how do their Vedic performances work to secure the integration—you
mentioned the word “integration”—of national consciousness
as the basis for making a nation invincible? How does the Vedic Pandits’
programme work to create this effect?’
the Vedic words are the words of the transcendental field. Being the structuring
dynamics of the transcendental field, they are not limited to space and
time. That means: one word is pronounced, and its effect is everywhere,
everywhere. This has given the Vedic language that authority to produce
the effect anywhere in space and time from one place in space and time—anywhere
in the universe from anywhere in the universe.
‘All these Yagya performances are performances to neutralize the
wrong effect that may be coming to some one person as a result of his own wrongdoing.
You know, you reap what you sow—that phrase: “whatever you do, you have
to bear the consequences of it.” If someone has done something wrong
today and the effect is going to come in two years, the
Vedic performances can do something before two years to neutralize it,
so the wrong effect will not have to be faced by the doer.
‘It is a great miracle of the authority that has the alliance with
the Constitution of the Universe. “To the Constitution of the
Universe”—that means to the Veda and the Vedic Literature—all past, present, and future is available at any point. One effect here
is an effect everywhere. This natural penetration of the effect makes
the Vedic Pandits produce through resolution. They resolve, “I am
doing this Yagya, this performance, this Graha Shanti, this particular
Yagya, in order to produce this effect at that time.” This is the
specialty of Vedic performance. The effect is not limited to any one place.
The effect travels all over frictionless, instantly.
‘This being the characteristic quality of the Vedic performances,
it is possible for the Vedic Pandits. Of course, they have to
practise. The life of Indian Vedic Pandits has been spoilt quite a lot by the foreign
influences and all that. Quite a lot of impurity has crept into their pure
Vedic routine. But nevertheless, the seed produces the same tree, after
same tree, after same trees. So Vedic performances have that natural ability
to produce any effect from any distance. They are called Yagyas.
‘When we are adopting a nation, we prepare a few hundred Vedic Pandits
or a thousand, two thousand Vedic Pandits, depending on the size of the
population of the country, to produce the effect. What to do to produce
what effect is already prescribed. It is prescribed.
‘We are adopting the ability of the Constitution of the Universe,
the ability of the Vedic language, to produce the effect from the transcendent,
from self-referral consciousness, to produce any desired effect anywhere.
It's a great miracle; it's a great miracle. On the level of total Natural Law, this is
the nature of Natural Law to be able to produce this effect. The effect
is produced from the transcendental field of consciousness, where every
spur of performance is the frictionless flow for the whole infinity of
the galactic universe. It is a big, huge field of knowledge, which we
enjoy through the blessings of our Vedic Tradition of Masters.
‘Tell the press we will meet next week. And week after week, the time
of talking will become less and less. The effect in the world will
be found more and more. Jai Guru Dev.’
