'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

Achieving National Security and Invincibility
A Unified Field-Based Approach to Defence

2 May 2007

Maharishi: ‘Jai Guru Dev. I was listening with great joy to every sentence of yours, Dr Hagelin. I will ask the world press to inform their government.

‘The concept of a government organization was from the need of a nation. Every nation needed an organization which will consider whether all different aspects of life in the country are on the right side of evolution. The very existence of a government throughout the ages has its basis in the need for an organization. Throughout the history of nations, throughout the history of society, the need was felt that there should be an organization which should take care of the education, health, industry, commerce—all in one centralized organization—and that was called government. Every government has rules for its fulfilment.

‘Now, a concept has come for the need of an administration which will be prevention-oriented, and which will be problem-free itself. What we find is that every government is full of problems and full of questions. Every ministry of every government decides to do this and this and this, but whatever they are doing, there is the concept of changing the government. In five, six years, the government must be changed. For five years, some people are given the chance to let the society run intelligently, without problems, but all the problems grow in economy, in politics, in behaviour—in everything. So, there is the concept of changing government. Democracy came into being. . . .

‘People believe some people, and they are rulers for five years. They make their gestures and all, but nothing comes out of it to fulfil the purpose of their assembly. No government, with all its different departments, is able to fulfil the purpose of any department, just because humanly conceived laws will always remain incompetent for the total purpose of life.

‘Therefore, now, a plan has come that life could be upheld by cosmic law, by total law, by total knowledge of Natural Law. It just evolved, and it has proved its value. Every government—every minister and every ministry—can fulfil its purpose by having a hundred or two hundred people, every employee in every ministry, make it a part of their natural duty to spend half an hour twice a day in their home or office practising Transcendental Meditation for their own enlightenment. The effect will be that they will be more efficient in passing on papers from table to table, plus they will be producing an effect of invincibility. They will be fulfilling the purpose of the government. The total purpose of the government will be in favour of the life of everyone in the country.

‘All the government people are being paid by the money of the people, but they are not able to fulfil the required goals. Dr Hagelin is proposing a plan of Total Knowledge. It does not have to remain restricted to the schools and colleges. Every government is going to be hooted out in five years or six years anyway. The next year's government or the present government could create the fulfilment of its expected duty, and that government will be lasting.

‘Every government has a choice to be hooted out after six years or to be welcomed and honorably requested to remain in its position, since they have produced a problem-free administration, a problem-free nation, a peaceful nation, an integrated nation where there is no disintegration, is no conflict, no problems. Such a government can be now—in one month, in two months, in three months—now.

‘Dr Hagelin's voice today is being conveyed from the centre of New York. New York is supposed to be a New York; every year is a New York. It cannot continue to be an Old York. New York is also revived today with the presence of our team there—intelligentsia who are lighthouses of intelligence, the home of Total Knowledge, and have a vibrant vitality of infinite creativity, bringing out a new phase of administration.

‘Those, who are in the helm of affairs on the top level of every organization on the economic level or on the political level or on the social level or on any level, have only to understand. Now, I love the sentence Dr Hagelin said today, “They do not have to understand the equations of physics or chemistry.” They do not have to understand anything. So, instead of innocently going to hell, they are asked to innocently go to heaven. Absolutely, they can return from hell today. . . .

‘The world press in every country is dedicated to the country. This is the voice that they should bring out to the people. They should bring out the responsibility of the government, and tell the government how simply, knowingly or unknowingly, they can step onto it. Unknowingly, they are making laws which fail to bring the desired effect.

‘What Dr Hagelin said was very interesting. The chief military man does not have to understand. When a part of the military—not the whole military, just a very insignificant part of a military, one or two battalions—is closing their eyes, they are not asked to relinquish their rifles. If the need is there, they will fight. But before the need arises, they can cancel the need by closing the eyes. Just a little battalion of a few hundred people can do this.

‘Every country has thousands in the military. We are not asking all the military to run away, because we know the present fearful administration will never allow it to be disbanded. But they should realize that this destructive means of protection is a false notion. It has existed throughout the history. Murder of the youth has been throughout history in the name of securing the nation. What a stupid principle. Some people, who have gathered money from the people, pay them. They think, “Give money to the youth and keep them inspired in the name of bravery and all very good inspiring words, then put them to death. Feed the youth like you feed the goat to someday eat him up.” Very, very barbarian and very, very uncultured and very, very criminal is this approach of every government, as far as the national integrity, national security, defence, and education are concerned.

‘Here is a call to wake up. Either wake up or get out—finished. Every government can save itself from being hooted out, being removed in six years. Then the same people, who will remove the government, will respect the government: ”Oh, you have done very well, you have done very well. Everyone is very happy. Diseases are much less.”

‘In the whole field of medicine, poison is being given to the people. Modern medicine is full of poison. Modern education is full of restricted knowledge. Our programme is invincibility—Centers of Invincibility.

‘This week we are asking every government to have this thing done. And if they do not do it, there will be a revolt against every government. They will be hooted out. Presidents, prime ministers, education ministers, finance ministers, defence ministers, industry ministers, and trade ministers are all there to serve the nation. Now, we see that all are in default. In their mind, they are serving the nation, but the result is that they are crucifying the nation. Their effort, their organization, their government is a fraud. Everywhere the government is a fraud.

‘This is my message to every government, whether the world press releases this message or not. The world press will be out of their duty tomorrow. I am going to establish this through the government. It is very easy for the government to have a few hundred people in each ministry or all the people in each ministry or a quarter of the people spend one hour every day. The whole thing has come out to be possible on such a ridiculously small scale of operation.

‘Here is a joy for the world press, if the world press has anything to do with patriotism and if they have any common sense. There was a proverb in English: “If you try and try and fail again and again, you try and try again and again.” All that is not necessary. You try once, and you will see that you are crowned.

‘Today Dr Hagelin said, “There are geniuses who create electricity in the powerhouses. The man in his home does not have to know the whole engineering. He just presses the button and gets the light.” So people do not have to understand. Even if the people of the government do not understand, when they close the eyes and do all that we are teaching, what happens is that the individual gets enlightened. You do not have to understand the mechanics of how the influence becomes cosmic, and how the influence spreads in national life. But when you know how to press the button, the light will be on. You do not have to understand the mechanics.

‘Such simplicity—such utter simplicity—in the field of knowledge and such utter simplicity in the field of numbers, who will achieve this? The governments are going to do it, and single individuals have to be doing it for their own enlightenment. In every way, the world is destined to be a better world tomorrow—tomorrow, next week, next month. Do not go until next year. Next month is good enough.

‘Our Finance Minister, Prime Minister, and Science and Technology Minister have designed a programme for every government, for every trade and industry, for every school, for every college, for every hospital, for every builder, for every engineer in the country. For everyone, they have an open door to heavenly happiness on the mental level and a huge amount of wealth on the practical level. They have the programme.

‘The wealthy so far have always had heart palpitations about whether they should invest in this or they should invest in that. All these days of heart palpitations are coming to an end for the wise. This is a programme for those, who start to close the eyes, to do less and accomplish more and more.

‘We have started this thing. We do not depend on the governments. We have our own global government—peaceful government. We are not calling it a government, because we do not want to create any fear of our existence in the present existing governments. We call it a global government. We have a global development currency. We have global Natural Law. We have everything global. And we are going to be parental to the whole world population.

‘We want to see all the countries, our own family, and every country invincible, rising to invincibility very quickly—not many days or not a long time. Now it is a matter of a few days, a few weeks. With a few hundred people here or there, or a thousand people here or there in bigger countries, we are taking thirty-six top leading countries in the world now. And within a few weeks, they will create that integrated national consciousness.

‘We already have started to call our centers that teach Transcendental Meditation “Centers of Invincibility”. Centers of Invincibility have a collective connotation. A Center of Enlightenment was thought to be on the individual level so far. The history of thousands of years in the world has the word “enlightenment”; it is not a new word. What is new in our case is total knowledge of Natural Law and the influence of the individual enlightenment on the level of the nation as a whole in terms of enlightenment. The nation as a whole is in terms of enlightenment because a few hundred individuals are good enough to create that cosmic influence, that collective influence, in the whole society. And the whole society is going in the right lines—always evolving, always evolving, always evolving.

‘Now, it is a matter of a few days. Whether the world press will express it or not, we are going to create the influence. If the world press listens to it, they will be enjoying their duty. If they do not do it, we just simply do not mind. If the governments do it, they will be doing their duty. If they do not do it, we do not mind that they do not do it. Just a few hundred people will do it themselves.

‘We are so independent now. That is why we are proclaiming invincibility to every nation. It is not a slogan. It is the announcement of the real tomorrow. Today, a country is dependent on its people. Tomorrow, every nation will be independent. It will be thriving in prosperity, in affluence, in integrity, in wisdom—in everything. That is the world that is going to dawn in a few days. Maybe we have to go through a few nights, but we already see the dawn. And on that basis, we are making such open claims.

‘Listen to Dr Hagelin. Every Center of Transcendental Meditation, teaching Transcendental Meditation, promises all to the individual and now we want to call them Centers of Invincibility. Dr Hagelin and our Prime Minister absolutely convinced me that these centers are the torchbearers of the forthcoming enlightened world. “Forthcoming enlightened world” does not mean in a year or two years or three years. It is now, during this year. The world has a very great, fortunate generation of intelligentsia in the leaders of our Movement. . . .

‘Our formula is instant; the result is instant. A few individuals are creating a cosmic influence from the level of consciousness. All the theories and understanding about the philosophy of self-referral consciousness and all are abstract values, because they are more and more refined, more and more refined, more and more refined. They go to the transcendental level, from where the mind returns, from where the language returns, from where the calculations return.

‘But our operation is from that level of absolute silence. And we are expert in that; we are expert in teaching that. And we are very happy that we are able to produce such a great influence in the whole world society. That is why we say, “The world is our family.” And we do not want anyone in our family to be miserable, as has been the case throughout history.

‘The human race has had very wrong notions particularly in the field of defence. You are so afraid that, if anybody wants to come to you, you are afraid of him and want to kill him. When you want to kill him, you want to kill your own youth. You want to kill your own youth. When you are sacrificing the youth of the nation, where is the nation? For whom is the nation? When you are killing your youth for the nation, for whom is the nation? All these maddening principles have been floated on the level of bravery and so much national patriotism and all that. The whole thing was a fraud and harmful to life.

‘Now is the time we give all glory to the Vedic Tradition, to the tradition of Vedic Knowledge from where we have been fed the knowledge of total Natural Law, which has been verified today in the name of the Unified Field and all that. But as Dr Hagelin has expressed to the people, everyone does not have to be an electronic engineer to enjoy results of the activity of the electronic engineers in the powerhouse. They are giving the light, so one can press the button, and one does not have to have the knowledge of engineering electricity.

‘We are in a very beautiful position. And we are happy to say that we are happy about the knowledge and about what we are doing. We are happy about the results that we are producing. And we are happy about what we have done all these past years. Jai Guru Dev.’
