I understand why some people don't live in Fairfield and thus can't get to the dome to meditate in a group every day.
What I don't understand is why the rajas and other residents of Vedic City apparently don't meditate in the Patanjali Dome of Pure Knowledge. Where do they do program and do they do it alone, or with their family? Most of the residents of the TM Ideal Village down here meditate and do program together in the Maharishi Dome of Pure Knowledge. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <authfriend@...> wrote : "Yes" what? You didn't answer my question. I understand, of course, that group program is said to be more powerful (including by King Tony, below--"this is the greatest strength"). What I *don't* understand is why people who can't make it to a group program should not be told, as King Tony did, to coordinate their individual program so as to fly at the same time as in group program. Also, I don't think it helps the movement's "transformation" to try to make people feel guilty if they can't get to a group program. That sounds to me like the Ancien Regime of Bevan Morris et al. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : Yes, and by our experience and by the composite of quite a lot of good science we know that numbers of people meditating and proximity does matter in the Meissner-like transformational effect of groups meditating. Someone just sent me a chart from another new study on this. This ill-advise ‘non-localized’ comment from leadership just works against what is in the works of the movement right now and yet gives people codling excuse to sit back and be ill-disciplined when they could be helping by being in a group meditation. Yes, of necessity people’s circumstance may vary but movement policy has been splitting and bifurcating on this, eroding what transformational effect has been here. Hence, the Dome numbers (218 in the men’s Dome this morning) being what they are. This is an administrative failure of the program. People once could come to Fairfield, Iowa and be part of something larger. This thread critiquing leadership is very much part of an ongoing larger conversation being had right now in the movement. -JaiGuruYou ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <authfriend@...> wrote : And you're being insulting. I'm not "willfully confusing the situation," I'm asking you to clarify your remarks. I can't understand for the life of me why you'd object to telling people who can't make it to a group program that they should schedule their individual program to fly at the same time as the group. Plus which, calling people who aren't able to join a group "slackers" is sure as heck not going to help them feel a part of the movement. We don't need to get crazed over this Jyotish prediction. That just adds to the general incoherence. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <dhamiltony2k5@...> wrote : No, you are willfully confusing the situation. The guy could stand tall in the sandals of Maharishi. Maharishi was both one of the great visionaries of the 20th Century and one of its greatest activist revolutionaries into the 21st Century. 35 years has been spent separating people from the ™ movement. It is silly that a few in this organization are reaching out asking for the collective help and sacrifice with what circumstance we have at hand and the leadership at his level is so tepid. An organizational need here right now is for some direct leadership with some clarity and spine that lays out the higher mission of who we are as transcendentalists and where we are going with this. Not some appeasements and buried comments at the bottom of some talk. Right now we need some coordanated leadership from the top on this that does not get in the way of good work being done on behalf of the organization and movement.

He should be pulling on his oar along with the rest of the team. That kind of thing just sends things off in circles. This is just giving excuse to retired meditators out on the periphery who could be contributing to the community to just stay slack by themselves. It is apologetic for just meditating at best but a complete lack of clarity with Maharishi’s interest in the transformative power of coming together in collective meditation as practicing transcendental meditationists. Quite evidently these are no times for people to sit back at home. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <mdixon.6569@...> wrote : Maybe I'm missing something here.

Wow, that is certainly deflating. "Maharaja-ji said" ..His comments highlighted below in your post directly defy what we know by experience as meditators and what the science does reveal. Sending Mixed messaging from the top is a simple way to justify a culture of long failure (negligence) in corporate reign of administration to have people in meditation. This is really bad. A major tenant of Maharishi’s all along was that numbers and proximity of meditators in meditation were significators. The message there is like a pulling of a rug out from under the footing of his generals and soldiers out in the field. Comes down like the Trump-esk gaff. Mischief or Commander-in-chief? One could feel quite badly for all the TM movement’s people out working now to organize the group practices of collective meditation. And, what does he and those rich people who have access around him at that level know about group meditation? That high polloi don’t even come to the Dome to meditate. ---In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, <hepa7@...> wrote : Dear Rajas, Mothers of the Domain, and National Directors, The message is: Maximize group Yogic Flying numbers now! The time is very delicate for the next weeks. World Peace Assemblies. Group Yogic Flying in the Transcendental Meditation Centres. Everyone lift off at the same time, even if at home. Click HERE to download the Maharishi’s Global Super Radiance Programme Chart. Dr Eckart Stein and Dr Lila Maria Hartmann-Stein organized a call with Maharaja-ji [TM-liikkeen libanonilaissyntyinen johtaja, Tony (Abu-)Nader, MD, PhD] to inspire the leaders of Germany. They informed Maharaja-ji that the German Sidhas are gathering as a matter or [of??] urgency in Oebisfelde Maharishi Peace Palace for group Yogic Flying for the nation and the world. Maharaja-ji said: ‘This is wonderful that these assemblies keep happening. And the Movement in Germany has all the knowledge and expertise to assemble the strength and the forces to create a beautiful result for the nation and for the world. … ‘In this situation we look inside: inside of us for every individual and inside for all the nation, coming together, creating coherence, and then we know the Meissner Effect and we know when there is great coherence, no impurities can disturb. … ‘What we can do is come together as much as possible, this is the greatest strength, but if not, as a second choice, we try to fly at the same time. Even if we are far apart, since the effect is non local, there can be a great coherence created by coordinating flying together at the same time.’ So please every Raja and National Director, if you have not already done so, call all your Sidhas to practise group Yogic Flying, for the sake of securing powerful harmony and peace for your nations and the world. It is so important right now.
