'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

7 March 2007 Press Conference Highlights

Dr John Hagelin, renowned quantum physicist and president of the US Peace Government (, commented on the recent, extremely significant study on the health-promoting benefits of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation in the area of congestive heart failure. This study was funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and published in 'Ethnicity and Disease', an authoritative journal on heart health.

Dr Hagelin then introduced Dr Bevan Morris, the Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, who described the latest developments regarding the establishment of Maharishi Central University, the new university at the centre point of the USA.

Dr Hagelin: Last week we announced an extraordinary medical breakthrough. A study, which was funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) of the US government, showed a marked reduction in heart failure among those who learned Transcendental Meditation compared to those who did not learn Transcendental Meditation.

A press release about this study was issued all over the world one week ago by the University of Pennsylvania and the important medical journal "Ethnicity and Disease". This resulted in widespread publicity throughout the world, especially in India, where heart failure has become particularly widespread.

‘The study showed more than twice the reduction in heart failure than is found with the normal use of hypertension drugs, a primary treatment used for those suffering from heart failure. These drugs do have some effect in reducing heart failure, but they also have toxic side effects. Those practicing of Transcendental Meditation not only showed a significant reduction in heart failure but also had no side effects. In fact, Transcendental Meditation brought improvements in every other area of health and life among those to whom it was prescribed.

‘Of course this is extraordinary medical news, because heart disease is the number one killer in the world. Through this and other research, Transcendental Meditation has established itself as the most effective treatment in the world for both prevention and reversal of coronary heart failure.'

The Benefits of the Transcendental Meditation Programme on Society

‘As amazing as this news is, it really is old news. For years research has been coming out that establishes the remarkable effects of Transcendental Meditation in preventing disease and promoting health and longevity. What is really news, and is far more extraordinary and perhaps even more important, is that the group practice of these same techniques of Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying brings not just improved health, but national invincibility and world peace.

‘Invincibility is an extraordinary necessity in the world these days. We live in a world where no country can protect itself from attack. Every country is extremely vulnerable. A tiny percentage of the population can really bring about a significant change towards positivity, harmony, and peace in society. According to extensive research, the square root of one per cent of the population of the country, which is only a few hundred people for a moderate-sized country, is enough to generate an orderly influence of sufficient power to really change the behaviour of the whole society. This results in all the parameters of social stress being markedly reduces and positive trends abounding.

This has not only been demonstrated once, but has been demonstrated and replicated for decades. So more than enough evidence exists to establish this phenomenon. It is called the Maharishi Effect because, based upon his knowledge of the Vedic Literature and the Vedic Techniques, Maharishi predicted that such groups should be enough to change the direction of society. By even a relative handful of people practising Yogic Flying together, wars can be prevented and stopped and the country can be raised to invulnerability. That is news of tremendous relevance today.’

Maharishi Central University, USA

Towards this end, Maharishi has founded Maharishi Central University, USA, for 40,000 students. It is in the process of being designed with cutting edge technologies and curriculum to train leaders of the 21st century. This is a first class university with a first class curriculum for first class students. It is unprecedented in the world with the capability to develop Total Knowledge, total development of the human brain. It will provide education for enlightenment, education for the leadership of the 21st century.

Dr Bevan Morris, the Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, is currently at the geographic centre, the Brahmasthan of America, in Washington Township, Kansas, where this 36 square mile campus for 40,000 students is under development. He will now share some of the news from there with the world press.

Dr Morris: The 1200 acre piece of land that we already own in the Brahmasthan of America is quite marvelous. The previous owner had flattened vast stretches of mirror-flat land that progresses towards the east. The possibilities of building a really wonderful campus there, according to the ancient architectural principles in accord with total Natural Law, the administrator of the Universe, are unlimited. In addition, there are huge amounts of water under the ground that can be used by the university. We are going to begin building on this land immediately. The Surveyor General of the Global Country of World Peace, Dr Roger Audet, has formed the basic survey points, which will show exact the north/south axes on the land.

There are ancient techniques for doing this, using the North Star and other stars, but now there are very advanced systems based upon computerized records of the position of the sun from different parts of the earth at different times of the day year round. Dr Audet is using the most advanced technology for determining the exact directions of the north/south, east/west axes for building roads and laying out buildings.The roads will be constructed and then Dr Audet will lay out the exact corners of the buildings so the builders know precisely where to put everything.

The university is now being truly materialized on the land and will be ready for enrolment in September 2007. We are getting very specific on every aspect of the building process. The University is now established on the legal level and we are going for non-profit status. A group of us are now going to Topeka, the capital of Kansas, to get the legal ability to operate here in Kansas. Everything is moving ahead in a very concentrated way.

Dr Hagelin has prepared wonderful curriculum materials. He has laid out the structure of the curriculum in terms of the equation of the Unified Field itself. The whole curriculum is guided by the discovery of the Unified Field, and all disciplines are studied in terms of the Unified Field, Total Knowledge. All diversity is found in Totality and then from Totality, all diversity is located again—the principles of synthesis and analysis. The students' understanding, as well as their experience of these most basic principles, will make them the most powerful leaders the world has ever seen.

Tomorrow, Raja Dean Dodrill will come from his domain in Washington, DC, to Washington Township in the centre of America, and in a few days will finalize the site positioning and get the builder going on the road construction and the engineering for water and power supply, as well as the water treatment system. Everything is becoming very concrete on the 1200 acres of land we own there.

The rest of the team that is there presently will now go to Topeka, the Capital of Kansas, to take the next step of establishing the Central University. Then we will go to visit, and hopefully purchase, land in Kansas City and in Lincoln, Nebraska, so that half way in-between the Invincible America Assembly in Vedic City and Fairfield, Iowa, and Maharishi Central University in Kansas, there will be some way stations, some Peace Palaces. This will create a corridor of peace through the centre of the country, covering the whole range of the central part of the country with a powerful band of coherence to secure peace and harmony for the United States and everyone around the world.

Then we will join the Invincible America Assembly in Vedic City to gain power and strength from being there in properly oriented buildings, Vastu, that have that fortune-creating quality that stimulates creativity and organizing power. Also there we will be able to enjoy the phenomenal atmosphere beyond any imagining that is created by the vast group of the most enlightened people in the world, who are diving deep into the silent depths of pure Being itself, the ocean of consciousness, which is constantly, dynamically flowing within itself as total Natural Law, the totality of the intelligence of creation, and as the expression of that, the human physiology and the universe.

It is a great pleasure to give this report on the progress of Maharishi Central University which, as Maharishi said, is the expression of the Invincible America Assembly and the Maharishi University of Management, founded by Maharishi 35 years ago. Things are moving ahead very well.’

Dr Hagelin: Thank you, Dr Morris, for this inspiring news about Maharishi Central University, which has the most advanced and sophisticated curriculum in the world. It achieves the total development of the human brain—enlightenment—and delivers Total Knowledge to every student, in sharp contrast to all other universities in the world.’
