His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 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.
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 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.
Maharishi conceived that the effect of the Government of Natural Law will be to raise the administration of existing governments through national law to the dignity of Global Administration through Natural Law.
On Vijayā Dashamī Day, 7 October 2000, the Day of Victory in the Vedic Calendar, Maharishi inaugurated the Global Country of World Peace, with its Constitution in Ṛk Veda, the Constitution of the Universe, and its authority in the invincible organizing power of Natural Law, which naturally and eternally governs the evolution of all life everywhere.
The purpose of establishing the Global Country of World Peace is to simplify administration on both levels—global and local—and bring all levels of administration in full accord with total Natural Law.
The purpose of Global Administration is to maximize the nourishing power of Natural Law that connects our world with the ever-expanding universe around it. This Global Administration is being established along the lines of ideal administration in India—Vedic India—as available in the Vedic Literature in the Kingdom of Raam.
that no one suffered in the Kingdom of Raam—
Administration of a solar system, under the influence of the life-giving Sun, is a unit of the Cosmic Administration of the galactic universe.
The administration of the solar system by the life-giving Sun, which is equally nourishing to all, is the ideal administration on earth. It is in this reality that Raam Raj, the rule of total Natural Law, is upheld as the rule of the Solar Dynasty on earth.
Raam is portrayed in the Vedic Literature as the custodian of the total knowledge of administration—the embodiment of Unity Consciousness—Brahmi Chetanā— Rām Brahm paramārath rūpā (Rām Charit Mānasa, Ayodhyā Kāṇd, 93.4)
The technique of ideal administration—the technique of Raam Raj, administration through Natural Law—is to educate and train the people to develop Unity Consciousness—Brāhm¡ Chetanā—and all their activity will naturally be upheld by total Natural Law.
Being naturally supported by the evolutionary power of Natural Law, they will not create problems for themselves or for others. When individuals do not create problems in their lives, then the administration remains free from problems. In this way, administration is automatically maintained on an ideal level—ideal administration through ideal education—education through Veda, the total knowledge of Natural Law.
As the first step towards the materialization of this ideal of Global Administration, from 12–16 October 2000, with the five-day ceremony of Rājyābhishek (coronation), Professor Tony Nader, MD, PhD, President of Maharishi University of Management, Holland (who was awarded his weight in gold  for his historic discovery of the Constitution of the Universe, the Veda and Vedic Literature—total knowledge of Natural Law—at the basis of human physiology), was crowned as the First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace.
On 17 October, Professor Nader, whom Maharishi has honoured with the title ‘Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam’, in keeping with the tradition of the Royal Rulership of Raam—the Rule of Natural Law—graciously accepted his new sovereign role and announced the Ministries of his Global Country of World Peace, each upheld by the total Constitution of the Universe.
The founding of Maharishi’s Global Country of World Peace unites peoples of all nations with a common desire for peace. It extends beyond national boundaries, beyond continental boundaries, linking small and large territories. It unites individuals of all nationalities, cultures, and creeds—all the peace-loving people and peace-loving nations of the world—in a global initiative—in a global task—in a peaceful global unity.
With the Global Administration of the Global Country of World Peace, history has taken a turn. This is the great transformation to the system of administration that will end the oppression of fear-based administration, corruption-based administration—that will end all wars and the struggle and strife of life in ignorance, and usher in the reign of perpetual peace on Earth.
The relationship4 of the government of every country with Maharishi’s Global Government of Natural Law will be so elevating and nourishing to every government in the world that every Head of State will enjoy the full support of Natural Law, and his government will enjoy the ability to prevent problems and will substantiate the new definition of government provided by Maharishi’s Absolute Theory of Government.
Maharishi’s practical programme is to quietly5 establish life according to Natural Law without requiring change in any area of the existing administration, which is based on the national constitution of the country.
This global initiative to irrevocably change the course of time in favour of peace and happiness for all mankind placed Maharishi on a most supremely exalted level of rulership, which far surpassed the wisdom or administrative skill of any sovereign ruler in the world that history has ever recorded.
The establishment of Maharishi’s Global Administration through Natural Law—Global Raam Raj—will lead the administrative quality of every government in the direction of perfection so that every government functions on a par with the absolute administration of the universe, the Government of Nature, which is universally nourishing to all life.
Ṛk Veda places this supreme skill of leadership in
the hands of Brahm, the Ultimate Reality:
Ṛk Veda assigns supreme rulership to that self-referral quality of consciousness, the total potential of Natural Law—Brahm.
The total potential of Natural Law conducts the activity of those who have identified their intelligence with the infinite organizing power of pure intelligence at the level of self-referral consciousness.
Every custodian of Maharishi’s Absolute Theory of Government will have access to this enormous intelligence and power in his own self-referral consciousness—in his own Transcendental Consciousness—in his own physiology.
Ṛk Veda, the Constitution of the Universe, will be enlivened in the heart of everyone, and through groups of Yogic Flyers in many countries, an indomitable influence of harmony and peace will be generated in their national consciousness, which will influence the whole collective consciousness of the world. Indomitable Maharishi Effect—positivity and harmony—will be maintained in world consciousness, generation after generation.
Maharishi will always be a cosmic figure caring for
the well-being of all mankind. The
One wonders whether there could ever be a greater ruling intelligence than the one that has been guiding the world in the form of Maharishi, who has made life on earth heavenly, and who has made Heaven on Earth a reality.
Maharishi always attributed his achievements to Shri Guru Dev6, His Divinity Brahmananda Saraswati Maharaj, Jagatguru Bhagavan Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Badrikāshram, Himālayas—most illustrious embodiment of Vedic Wisdom in the eternal tradition of Vedic Masters.
During the past fifty-one years the purity of world consciousness has been steadily rising; the light of pure knowledge has been steadily rising; life according to Natural Law has been steadily rising.
It is satisfying
that with the blossoming of this golden age of Sat-Yuga, the world
is witnessing the signs of a new awakening in every field in the direction
Maharishi will forever be cherished as the quiet guardian of all
nations. Through his brilliance in the field of knowledge and administration,
INVINCIBILITY is now dawning for every
