Our Guiding Force
His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Ji will always be regarded as the foremost scientist in the field of consciousness and the greatest teacher of our time.
His Vedic Science and Technology, which unfolds the full potential of Natural Law in human consciousness as the basis of improving all areas of life, is regarded as the most effective programme of human resource development.
His technique of Transcendental Meditation is the most widely practised and extensively researched programme of self-development in the world.
More than 600 scientific research studies at over 250 independent universities and research institutes in 33 countries have validated the profound benefits of Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation Programme for the individual and for every area of society, including health, education, business, industry, rehabilitation, defence, agriculture, and government.
Over six million people in India, and millions more in all parts of the world and from all walks of life have learnt Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation. Over 20,000 teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Programme have been trained so far, and more are continuing to be trained.
In addition, more than 300,000 people in India and thousands more around the world have learnt Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme and are daily practising ‘Yogic Flying’, an advanced programme of Transcendental Meditation, which dramatically enhances all the benefits brought about by Transcendental Meditation for the individual, and creates a highly purifying influence in world consciousness.
Maharishi has held hundreds of World Peace Assemblies on all continents during fifty-one years, with many thousands of people coming together to create coherence in world consciousness through the group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme (Yogic Flying Programme).
In 1986, on the basis of the rising Maharishi Effect—coherence in world consciousness resulting from his World Peace Assemblies—Maharishi inaugurated his programme to create world peace by establishing a permanent group of 7,000 Vedic Scientists in Maharishi Ved Vigyan Vishwa Vidya Peeth, Maharishi Nagar, India, to create coherence in collective consciousness on a permanent basis through the group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme.
Today, under Maharishi’s continuing guidance, a permanent group of Vedic Scientists (Maharishi Vedic Pandits) is being established in the Brahma-Sthan (centre) of India, to create invincibility for all 192 countries of the world. Maharishi has envisioned the immediate establishment of a group of 16,000 Vedic Pandits at the Brahma-Sthan (centre) of India, to rise ever higher in number.
‘The goal is to establish a Vedic Capital of Global Administration through Natural Law, with the knowledge of Veda—total Natural Law—as the Constitution, for 200,000 Vedic Pandits to live their Vedic way of life and create and maintain a strong, indomitable influence of coherence in world consciousness, so that peace and harmony prevail, and the whole human race lives in perpetual peace in a problem-free world—perpetual peace on Earth.’ —Maharishi
As a result of the rising Maharishi Effect in world consciousness produced by millions of people practising Transcendental Meditation throughout the world, and through Maharishi’s programme to create invincibility for all 192 countries of the world, world peace is rising to be a permanent reality.
Over the past fifty-one years Maharishi has established a worldwide organization with centres in 108 countries.
Hundreds of books have been published about Maharishi’s teachings, which have been translated into many languages and have been distributed globally.
Maharishi’s teachings are preserved for the ages on more than 15,000 hours of video and audio tape recordings of lectures in Maharishi’s International Film and Tape Library.
Maharishi has completely restored the thousands-of-years-old scattered Vedic Literature for the total significance of its theory and practice, and has organized it in the form of a complete science of consciousness.
Transcendental Meditation is the subjective technology of Maharishi’s Vedic Science of Consciousness.
Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology is a complete science and technology of consciousness; it is the complete science and technology of life, capable of raising all aspects of life to perfection.
The practicality of creating the supreme quality of life on Earth—Heaven on Earth—through Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology has been amply verified during the past fifty-one years by scientific research, which documents the benefits in every aspect of life—physiology, psychology, sociology, and ecology. It has also been substantially verified by personal experience, and by the authenticity of the ancient, traditional Vedic Literature.
The global achievements of these fifty-one years, on the ground of tested knowledge, prompted Maharishi to launch a global programme to create Heaven on Earth—life according to Natural Law.
Maharishi’s Programme to Reconstruct the World, inner and outer, was first outlined in 1988, in Maharishi’s Master Plan to Create Heaven on Earth.
Maharishi’s knowledge, Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology, Maharishi’s eternal Constitution of the Universe, being present everywhere, and Maharishi’s simple approach for everyone to enjoy life according to Natural Law are the foundation of Maharishi’s global action to create Heaven on Earth and perpetuate it for all generations to come.
The revival of Vedic Wisdom through Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology and the establishment of Maharishi Vedic University, Maharishi Ayur-Veda University, and Maharishi University of Management in many countries provide that perfect knowledge of Natural Law which will forever continue guiding mankind on the path to perfection—daily life in full accordance with Natural Law.
A review of all the scientific research on the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme reveals that the sequential unfoldment of pure knowledge and its infinite organizing power has brought about the experience of pure consciousness, has given rise to higher states of consciousness in the individual, and has purified world consciousness, as evidenced by the rising waves of achievement of Maharishi’s Movement throughout the world over the past fifty-one years.
Maharishi’s achievement is the supreme achievement of the wise throughout the ages—an objectively derived and subjectively derived scientific formula to bring perfection to every man on the basis of Natural Law—the common heritage of all mankind—the eternal Constitution of the Universe, the Veda and Vedic Literature.
It is this total potential of Natural Law, the common heritage of all mankind, which is at the basis of the structure and function of the human physiology; and due to this inherent field of all possibilities within the DNA of every cell of the human physiology, and due to Maharishi’s Technology of Natural Law, which being a Technology of Consciousness can stir the total field of human creativity within the human brain, every individual can gain the ability to use his total brain potential, and this will allow him to rise in the ability to know anything, do anything spontaneously right, and achieve anything through the support of Natural Law.
The very start of Maharishi’s worldwide Transcendental Meditation Movement had one word of Ṛk Veda at its basis—one word, ‘Parame vyoman’, of one Richa: ‘Ṛicho Ak-kshare parame vyoman yasmin Devā adhi vishwe nisheduḥ.’
This timeless verse of Rig-Veda has been discovered to be the source, or fountainhead, of intelligence—the most basic field of intelligence, Transcendental Consciousness, from where all fields of knowledge, all theories of modern science emerge.
This has created the possibility of creating a perfect man, a perfect society, and a perfect world characterized by self-sufficiency and invincibility.
Maharishi’s call to the governments of the world and his offer of a practical formula for every government to come in alliance1 with Nature’s Government, to gain the support2 of Nature’s Government, and gain the ability to nourish everyone and satisfy everyone is so unique and unprecedented in the thousands of years of struggling history of governments that probably the political leadership of the world, working under stress and strain, could not believe that the support of Nature could be gained in a systematic, scientific manner by all.
Having realized that it is possible to free governments from problems and develop in them the ability to prevent problems, Maharishi decided to establish3 a Global Government of Natural Law with its seat in every country.
