'Now I welcome the influence of the world press to bring the message of—Total Knowledge—to every individual in our world and invincibility to every nation in our world. Whatever life has been so far, it has been endeavouring to be better and better. Now should be the time to step onto the plateau of the fulfilment of all the endeavors of the wise throughout the ages.'—Maharishi

22 March 2006 Press Conference Highlights

Opening Remarks

Maharishi: Jai Guru Dev. Yes, take the questions from the press. Now the time of speaking seems to be over. We are busy creating the source of all good news. All the twenty-four countries that you have mentioned to the press, they are all quickly rising to the level of invincibility, and that is on the basis of their national consciousness rising to a high level of integration, to the level of invincibility.

The word “sovereignty” has not been enough. It has become a laughing stock today. Now, the dignity of every country will be known in terms of invincibility. And that, Dr Hagelin has so beautifully expressed in his introductory remarks. That state will be through groups practising Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying, the advanced technique of Transcendental Meditation; they will create integrated national consciousness.

‘What Dr Hagelin has mentioned today, I fully endorse it. The governments now have a chance of continuing their regime, not through elections after elections, but through the good will of the people. The people will admire prevention-oriented administration from the existing governments in these twenty-four countries, at least now, and then in the groups of twelve countries—every two or three months added.

Before the end of the year, there will be a huge amount of coherence in world consciousness. Dr Hagelin has already mentioned the conflicting values of election after election and election after election. The people have the chance to throw out the government after each election. All that mockery of the governments will cease to be, and the reality of lasting prevention-oriented governments will come about. That is going to happen now. Now, it's going to happen.

‘The door has been knocked upon, and it is about to open. The door is about to open. It's in only a matter of a few weeks or some little time, that these twenty-four countries will begin to emit the sign of coherence, integration, fulfilment, freedom from problems—invincibility to every nation. It is beautiful.

When I started the movement fifty years ago, I had not thought it would take such a long time—fifty years. But it does not matter; those fifty years have passed. Now we have that time, for which the movement was started fifty years ago. That was was to unfold the inner potentiality of each individual. Because each individual is a unit of a nation, it ended up in proving that the nations are going to rise now, which is the target of the movement.

So, even if there are questions, Dr Hagelin, ask them. Give them the opportunity to ask questions, if there are any. There should not be any questions, but even if there are, it will be a joy to answer them.’


Question: On How Peace Palaces Provide an Influence of Peace


Dr Hagelin: ‘Jai Guru Dev. Thank you very much, Maharishi, for that beautiful introduction. There is a beautiful question on the role of Peace Palaces to raise our cities and countries to invincibility.’

[Dr Hagelin reads an editorial from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA, that gives great appreciation for the Peace Palace there.]

‘A question from many of the press is: How will these beautiful, marble-clad Peace Palaces provide an influence of peace, harmony, and problem-free administration to the cities of the world?’ 

Maharishi: Tell them about how the total brain functions during the practice of Transcendental Meditation, and that when the people practice in groups then the group dimensions* are many more times than the single, single meditators. These Peace Palaces are to bring the people of peace from everywhere and give them an opportunity [to be in] an atmosphere, a place of knowledge, all about peace.

Administration through peace is the characteristic quality of the Constitution of the Universe. The Constitution of the Universe is a function of Total Natural Law. Total Natural Law is always peaceful. So this beautiful functioning together creates a very great and intense influence of harmony and integration. This is how integrated peace will be manufactured by those who will be making use of these halls and places of meditation in the Peace Palaces.

A Peace Palace is symbol of the home for the Constitution of the Universe. “Peace Palace” is a very good name. In the Palace, peace will feel safe. As long as peace is in a peaceful place, it will perpetuate peace by its own nature. These Peace Palaces are a blessing to every city and every country now.’

Question: On Bringing the Structuring Dynamics of the Constitution of the Universe to the Level of Human Government


Dr Hagelin: ‘Thank you very much, Maharishi. There are more such practical questions, but this question is a fairly deep question of knowledge: Maharishi recently spoke about the structuring dynamics of the Constitution of the Universe, the eternal flow within the Unified Field from infinity to a point and point to infinity, which gives rise to the infinite diversity of the universe. Maharishi also spoke about how these structuring dynamics will soon be brought to the level of national administration by establishing groups of Yogic Flyers in every country. My first question is how will the Yogic Flyers bring the hidden structuring dynamics of the Constitution of the Universe to the surface level of human government?’

Maharishi: [Gap in audio] . . . . mind to that area where that is the reality.The whole field of behaviour is run by the conscious mind. So, when the conscious mind is in full attunement with the inexhaustible source of peace, then the behaviour of the mind in the field of the relative world will have a peaceful characteristic. Peace is the nature of the mind. The people have only to see, now.

Now the time is arriving that Dr Hagelin** is going to be ruling the field of politics and economics. The time has almost come. It is a matter of—when Dr Hagelin starts to speak from that level of silence where his speech will be omnipresent, omniscient, and on the level of omnipotence. This is the great hero of the time that is going to bring Heaven on Earth—peacefully landing on earth, gliding on earth. The reign of peace is about to dawn; reign of peace is about to dawn.

‘All these fifty years have been the days when the foundation was being created, and now Peace Palaces are going to rise to host peace. The time has changed. The time is for science to rule the world, scientific reality to rule the world, Unified Field to rule the world, eternal field of silence to rule the world from infinity of silence to point of silence. This is the dynamism of that silence ruling—a move from infinity to point. This is the area of the unmanifest transcendental field, which is omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent. The Light of God is going to reign in the world. Peace is going to reign in the world.

‘Tell the world press of your following in the world of scientific discoveries. Scientists are still busy with their test tubes, test tube science of olden times. But Dr Hagelin has picked up the master scientist minds in all the major important countries of the world. And they are all going to rule their countries, and they are all going to be together in a spirit of the Unified Field in order to be a unified family of nations. They will create a world of peace. They will create a world of peaceful coexistence—peaceful invincibility to every nation.

‘When every nation is on the level of invincibility, every nation will be perpetually set on the level of peace. This is what is going to be in the reign of scientists in the world today led by the greatest and most fortunate scientist of this scientific age, Dr John Hagelin.

‘Dr Hagelin, you may not be able to speak for yourself. You can invite our Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace; he will display your new role of rulership in the world, rulership of peace.’

[Dr Hagelin speaks and invites Dr Morris to speak. Dr Morris then speaks.]


Question: Maharishi’s Message for the Youth


Mr Max: ‘We have another question from the press, which has to do with the fact that this weekend there will be an unprecedented pilgrimage from throughout the entire United States and all over the world to Maharishi Vedic City and Maharishi University of Management. Over a thousand will assemble at Maharishi University of Management for a national conference entitled “Exploring the Frontiers of Consciousness, Creativity, and the Brain”. They will hear from renowned filmmaker Dr. David Lynch, from Dr. John Hagelin, and from other scientists of Maharishi University of Management, who will speak about the infinite potential of the human mind, and how development of total brain functioning and the full potential of consciousness is the basis of inner fulfillment and outer permanent peace for the world.

‘The question for Maharishi is: Do you have a particular message that you would like to convey to all these young people who are coming to your university to gain this profound knowledge? What should they know? What should they learn that they do not already know?’

Maharishi: They should know, they should learn something which is within themselves—their own consciousness—whose total potential is hidden from view. Their world is a world of sensory perception. Now they have to close the eyes and face the reality of their own existence, their own intelligence, their own self-referral Unified Field in their own Transcendental Consciousness. This is what they have to know, they have to be, and they have to use it in their lives.

They are fortunate to be in this generation, where Transcendental Consciousness is going to be the conscious ruler of their actions, the conscious manager of their perceptions. That is going to be their reality of life, which is hidden from view, and which they will unfold through Transcendental Meditation and which they will bring out into the field of the relative.

‘The whole field of relativity is just a matter of opinion. The reality is transcendental, self-referral consciousness, bliss consciousness, invincible consciousness—coherence in the field of consciousness. So, the world is going to be a world ruled by that reality which has been transcendental so far. And now, the miracle*** of Dr John Hagelin is going to be everyone’s reality of life. 

All glory to the Vedic Tradition of Masters. All glory to Guru Dev. Brahmananda Saraswati Vigayante Taram.'


* Maharishi is referring to the power of harmony radiated by the group.

** John Hagelin, PhD is a world-renowned quantum physicist, educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace. As a physicist, he has probed deeply into the nature of consciousness and its parallel structure in Unified Field theories.

*** Dr Hagelin has published groundbreaking research establishing the existence of long-range 'field effects' of consciousness generated through collective meditation, and has shown that large meditating groups can effectively defuse acute societal stress—thereby preventing violence and social conflict, and providing a practical foundation for permanent world peace. These field effects of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme have been considered to be a 'miracle' by some.
