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 conducted during the past fifty-one years 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.
Nearly five million people in all parts of the world and from all walks of life practise Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation. 40,000 teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Programme have been trained so far, and more are continuing to be trained.
In addition, more than 100,000 people 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 the past 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 Peetham, 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.
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 World Peace and Invincibility Assemblies in all parts 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 more than 1,200 centres in 108 countries.
Hundreds of books have been published about Maharishi’s teachings. These have been translated into many languages and have been distributed globally.
Maharishi is one of the most videotaped personalities in history. There are 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.
The Global Reconstruction Programme for Permanent World Peace (http://www.globalreconstruction.org/) calls for the reconstruction of the whole world, inner and outer, and has been established to create life in accord with total Natural Law—Heaven on Earth.
Maharishi’s knowledge, Maharishi’s Vedic Science and Technology, Maharishi’s eternal Constitution of the Universe which is 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.
