An extraordinary message was delivered by Dr. John Hagelin, world-renowned quantum physicist and executive director of the International Center for Invincible defence in New York City, to UN ambassadors, government leaders, and the world press in a conference held on April 11 at the Global Financial Capital of New York in downtown Manhattan. This historic building which is located at 70 Broad Street, one block from the New York Stock Exchange.
Proven New Technology to Secure Invincibility for the Nation
acute political, religious, and ethnic tensions that fuel violence and
conflict in the Middle East and around the world can be defused immediately
by implementing a powerful new “Invincible Defence Technology.”
The new technology involves establishing in every country a small group
of “peace-creating experts,” whose collective practice of
advanced meditation techniques will enliven the Unified Field—the
most fundamental and powerful level of nature’s functioning.
approaches are powerless to safeguard the nation
Hagelin was blunt in his message, saying that governments have no choice
but to look for an effective new approach to national security. “Conventional
military approaches are increasingly powerless to protect a nation against
terrorist attack, against new destructive technologies, or against missiles
with pinpoint accuracy,” Dr. Hagelin said.
Effects of the Invincible Defence Technology
Maharishi’s Message to the World Press
‘Jai Guru Dev. I was listening with great interest [Dr. Hagelin] and I want to inform the press that the press is very fortunate, and the world is very fortunate to have a well-wisher of mankind like Dr Hagelin. Dr Hagelin has translated in his scientific research all that he felt has been the voice and the practical programme of the Vedic Science and Technology.
‘I was listening with great interest to the address of Dr Hagelin to the world press today. The world press should take this to be the nectar for every generation of mankind. His message of invincible defence is going to substantiate the administration of every government. Otherwise the history of governments has been fear. And out of fear the governments have been paying their dear sons and dear young men—they have been paying: “I'll pay you; I'll make you General and Colonel and this and this in order that you may fight the enemy and die on the field for the sake of the nation”. What is this stupid logic?! When the youth of the countries are put to fire, where is the nation? Such a stupidity in terms of safety has been prevailing in the governments. Now is the time for wisdom to dawn.
‘Press everywhere should make it their duty to broadcast, to tell the government, and tell the government, and tell the government until they come out of this stupid principle to destroy the nation, to kill the nation in order to have patriotism to the nation. “You are so patriotic!” And all these words of patriotism in the military (are) to inspire the people to die. The whole thing is such a stupid and merciless principle. This has been the basis of governments, governing through creating fear—not only creating fear, through creating the death of the precious youth of the country.
‘Let Dr Hagelin's words of today be repeated and repeated and repeated. He doesn't have to speak the same thing over and over again. The world press is very intelligent. But the intelligentsia of the world press is more in favour of the government policies. This is damaging to the world press itself. The world press should be fair and truthful and sincere to do good. And here is the ocean of all good in today's expressions of Dr Hagelin.
‘I congratulate the world press to be so fortunate to hear these words and pass them on to their dear administrators of their dear country. So, congratulations to the world press. I'll advise the same tape to be heard by the press until their country becomes invincible with a few hundred people* like that, like that, like that.
‘Look to the simplicity of approach. And look to the simplicity of approach which is going to confer invincibility—if you understand the word what invincibility means. Invincible is the Constitution of the Universe, which is handled with great surprise, with great creativity—greatest creativity—that everything in nature is progressing, progressing, progressing, progressing. Everything in nature is progressing, progressing, progressing. So nature of life is to progress conducted under the influence of the Constitution of the Universe.
‘That is my advice to the press. And this is the conclusion of my shouting around the world for the last fifty years. But my language was different; it came from the Vedic Tradition. But now that language has been translated by Dr Hagelin in the current coin, in the language of modern science.
‘All glory to the Vedic Tradition of Masters, who have preserved throughout time the greatest scientific discoveries for prevention and preservation from disaster and from all negativity and from all ill health and all that.
‘So make your countries healthy, wealthy, and wise
with this advice of the great hero of all times, Dr John Hagelin. I remember my Guru Dev.
‘All glory to Guru Dev. And great glory to Dr Hagelin's great intelligence and his love for mankind to have a turning point from darkness to light.
‘Jai Guru Dev.’
*Maharishi is referring to the few hundred people, practicing the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Program, that are necessary to create an influence of peace and coherence in a country.
