Maharishi - What creates real deep Peace:
 “The basis of peace is bliss. Unless one is happy, he cannot be in peace. 
Peace without lasting happiness is only passivity. When one sleeps in the night 
he feels absence of activity. This is called peace. But when he wakes up in the 
morning and comes into the field of thought, speech, and activity, he begins to 
feel miserable again. The peace felt by the absence of activity is not lasting.
 The peace gained by emptying the mind of thoughts, holding the mind in 
suspension, is due only to the lack of pressure of thought.
 When such a mind returns to the field of thinking and acting, it again begins 
to feel the pressures of thought and action. Then the individual begins to feel 
unpeaceful. All such practices of silencing the mind are wrong. Such practices 
continued for much time result in making the mind dull.
 There are many groups in the world who sit in silence and try to hear their 
inner voice or the voice of God, as they term it. All such practices make the 
mind passive and dull.
 Those who practice silencing the mind begin to lack in brilliance. Dullness 
can be seen on their faces. They are not energetic in the field of action. They 
look peaceful, but they are passive in life. Peace at the cost of activity is 
at the cost of life.
 Such an experience of peace is at the cost of efficiency in life and at the 
cost of life itself. An attempt to silence the mind in the hope of experiencing 
pure consciousness is pursuing a mirage.
 When one keeps the thoughts out of the mind, it becomes passive because it 
remains on the conscious thinking level without a thought. This practice makes 
the mind dull.
 What is necessary is not the attempt to vacate the mind, but that the 
conscious mind be led on to the subtle states of thinking to eventually 
transcend the subtlest state and arrive at the positive state of Being.
 Holding the mind on the conscious level is only taking it out of the field of 
activity and allowing it to be passive and inactive. This only helps to 
diminish the brilliancy of the mind and brings dullness and passivity to it.
 People who practice this do feel peace in life because they are practicing 
suppression or negation of thoughts. When a mind that has gained the quality of 
sluggishness and dullness through such practices does not have a thought in a 
very energetic manner and does not engage itself energetically in the field of 
experience and activity, peace is felt because of the innate dullness of the 
 But, whenever some serious problems in life arise, the mind feels a strain 
because it has been trained to remain dull and passive. When the individual 
must become active to accomplish some work in a very precise and energetic 
manner, the mind feels the strain.
 Such practices have also done great damage to the progress of the individual 
and society.
 Thus we find that practices that silence the mind in the first place produce 
dullness in the mind, and, in the second place, the peace that is felt is not 
lasting. As we have said, peace can be lasting only if the mind could be made 
happy forever.
 Only if the very nature of the mind could be transformed to bliss 
consciousness could peace be lasting. The quest for peace should be directed to 
bringing the mind to the field of the transcendent, the source of all happiness 
through the practice of Transcendental Meditation.
 When one is not peaceful, fear, lack of self-confidence, and all the pettiness 
in life arise and the consciousness of man becomes so abjectly miserable that 
he cannot think and cannot accomplish anything worthwhile.
 Fear is just lack of self-confidence, and the basis of confidence is in 
contentment which can only result from the experience of bliss.
 There is nothing in the world which can really bring lasting contentment to 
the mind because everything in the world, although it provides some happiness 
to the mind, is not intensive enough to satisfy the great thirst for happiness 
of the mind.
 The only field of contentment is the transcendental field of bliss 
consciousness. Unless one arrives at that state, one’s peace will always be 
threatened by everything in the world because of lack of contentment.
 The only golden gate to peace in life is the experience of transcendental 
bliss consciousness and this great glory of life is easy for everyone to 
achieve and live throughout life.”

 Kim Jong-un warns of change in direction on denuclearisation He made the 
remarks during his closely-watched annual New Year's address.
 Mr Kim said, "if the US does not keep its promise made in front of the whole 
world... and insists on sanctions and pressures on our republic, we may be left 
with no choice but to consider a new way to safeguard our sovereignty and 
 The annual New Year's address is a tradition Mr Kim picked up from his 
grandfather, Kim Il-sung, founder of the communist country. the interdisciplinary Global Zen Consciousness Conference in Atlanta...

 The conference was organized by the Shaolin Chan [Zen] Foundation, which hopes 
to “create a worldwide revolution by combining the spheres of science and 
Eastern philosophy to help humanity realize that at the deepest sub-nuclear 
level and at the innermost consciousness level we are all one.” “This was a 
breakthrough event, with both the modern and ancient corroborating each other 
in an authentic and science-based manner,” said Dr. Schneider, dean of MUM’s 
College of Integrative Medicine. Dr. Hagelin spoke about the physics of 
consciousness and higher states of consciousness. Dr. Schneider discussed the 
physiological correlates.. 


 Peace by the Meissner-like effect of groups meditating:
 Creating an Ideal Society:
 The phenomenon of a powerful influence of harmony spreading through a whole 
community or nation when a small fraction of the population practices the 
Transcendental Meditation technique is known as the Maharishi Effect [ME].  The 
influence of orderliness generated from the state of infinite correlation 
experienced during the Transcendental Meditation technique is so powerful that 
even one per cent of the people in society practising the Transcendental 
Meditation technique is sufficient to neutralize negative tendencies and give 
an evolutionary direction to community life as a whole. With the growth of 
individual consciousness, family consciousness, community consciousness, 
national consciousness, and world consciousness are enriched. More than one and 
a half million people currently practising the Transcendental Meditation 
technique are constantly intensifying the Maharishi Effect and contributing to 
the Age of Enlightenment. The dawn is rising to the day.

 Brave meditators, you have done all we asked you to do, and more than could be 
reasonably expected; but your own global country of World Peace is at stake, 
your partners, families, your homes and all that you hold dear. You have worn 
yourselves out with fatigues and hardships of waging world peace, but we know 
not how to spare you. If you will consent to stay in the Domes only one month 
longer, you will render that service to the cause of liberty of all and to your 
global country of world peace which you probably never can do under any other

 In 1960 Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation 
program, predicted that a transition in society toward a more orderly and 
harmonious functioning would occur when a small fraction -on the order of one 
percent- of a population practiced the Transcendental Meditation technique (6), 
and in December 1974 we found that crime rate did decrease in four midwestern

 From quite early on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi employed the

 radical direct action of groups meditating deployed in field effect as like 
the Meissner Effect of consciousness mediation of meditation as then even in 
1962 meditating a peaceful resolution to the Cuban Missile crisis of 1962. 
Maharishi called for group meditations at that time to avert the critical 
danger of incoherence the world was suffering in at that moment in time.   In a 
move of scientific radical peace-activism Maharishi lead group meditations 
against the turmoil in the world then. To his transcendental mediation we look 
back at it now as The Cuban missile crisis of 1962.   
 Radicalism 1962,   Radical Peace and The 1962 Cuban missile crisis: As a 20th 
Century revolutionary in radical peaceful affect, a prominent millenarian of 
his age, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi was boundlessly persistent, constant and 
consistent in his coming out of India going around the world in  peace activism 
of direct-action through introducing and  inciting the mediation for peaceful 
resolution of world conflict  by the effect of group meditation.

 The Radical Peace Conference,

 Scientists and policy makers joined together:


 UN refugee agency: A Record 65.6 million people displaced worldwide.. by 
 It is a smaller increase than 2014-15, when the figure rose by five million.
 But the UN high commissioner for refugees Filippo Grandi said it was still a 
disheartening failure of international diplomacy.
 "The world seems to have become unable to make peace," Mr Grandi said.
 "So you will see old conflicts that continue to linger, and new conflicts 
erupting, and both produce displacement… forced displacement is a symbol for 
wars that never end."


 " the field of conflict resolution, the first stage in the emergence of 
war is mounting societal stress—political, religious, and ethnic tensions. “If 
these tensions grow unchecked—if they reach a boiling point—they inevitably 
erupt in social violence, terrorism, and war,” 

 Waging World Peace in Conflict Resolution. 
 In addition to food aid delivered to regions with huge dislocated populations 
there should also be programs and resources allocated to conflict resolution. 
Resources for people in these regions to learn how to meditate as part of a 
process of larger conflict resolution in the world. A larger source in world 
food insecurity that is driving people from their homes is war, conflict.   


 Both Science and experience say quite evidently that meditating and meditating 
in groups by effect creates peace.  That meditation creates peace is now simply 
and plainly statistical fact, a truth. 

 In the world today there are 65.8 million people displaced from their homes 
due to war. While the need right now for food is extreme to feed children and 
families dislocated by war the need for conflict resolution is huge also to 
stem the undertow tides of population dislocation in the world.

outer lives and take the time to go within even for a moment's meditation where
