[FairfieldLife] Boston Globe- conference promotes meditation

2006-05-06 Thread Ron F



Conference promotes meditation in school   By Cristina Silva, Globe Staff | May 6, 2006 Twenty minutes of deep breathing and silence twice daily can help boost students' grades, improve their social skills, and ignite their creativity.Article Tools Printer friendlyE-mail to a friendEducation RSS feedAvailable RSS feedsMost e-mailedReprints  LicensingMore: Globe Education stories |Education section |Globe front page |Boston.com   Sign up for:Globe Headlines e-mail |Breaking News Alerts  That's the message Transcendental Meditation practitioners brought to more than 100 Boston-area educators yesterday during a three-hour conference on how to help students overwhelmed by social pressures and the stress of getting into college.The concept excited many attendees, who took notes intently and walked out chatting animatedly about how they might introduce the program to parents and students.''It sounds very powerful," said Jose A. Solis, a counselor at Madison
 Park Technical-Vocational High School in Boston. ''I think it could work."Donald Brown, principal of Roxbury Charter High Public School, said he was already considering creating a pilot meditation program for ninth-graders.''I had never heard of it before this," he said. ''We all talk about how we want to create an environment conducive to learning. This sounds like this is it."Maryalice Foley, assistant principal of B. F. Butler Middle School of Technology in Lowell, said the school had begun experimenting with different ways to reduce student stress this year over of the rise of gang violence.''Anything that can bring cohesiveness to the brain, that can calm them down, is good," she said.She said she thought some parents might be concerned about the unusualness of the practice.''I don't know if we would immediately call it Transcendental Meditation," she said.Organized by the New England
 Committee for Stress-Free Schools, the nonprofit group of educators and meditation practitioners has launched a two-week tour across the region to promote the benefits of meditation. In the past week, they made stops in Fairfield, Conn., and Providence.''There's an exorbitant amount of pressure on kids today," said G. Anthony Ryan, director of the Massachusetts Committee for Stress-Free Schools, a meditation group, before the conference began. ''Bullying, academic problems, drug use, this is a mechanism to combat all that." Ryan is assistant superintendent of the Hampshire Regional School District in Western Massachusetts.During yesterday's conference at the Harvard Club, educators heard testimonies from principals in Detroit and Washington, D.C., who said they had successfully introduced meditation in their schools and neurology specialists who said meditation stimulated the brain.Transcendental Meditation is practiced in at least 15
 schools nationally, according to the committee. Supporters believe the program, which requires participants to sit quietly in a deep rest for 20 minutes at the start and at the end of the school day, allows the brain to tap into a reservoir of energy and intelligence.The Transcendental Meditation Program is a nonreligious practice started by the East Indian spiritual leader Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Its most famous students include the Beatles, who made the practice popular in the late 1960s.At the conference, 17-year-old Owen Stowe said he loved art, but after transferring from a school that used meditation to Buckingham Browne  Nichols private school in Cambridge, he felt too stressed out to draw.Three years ago, Stowe decided to return to the Maharishi School, a private school in Fairfield, Iowa, and live with family friends. The school encourages students to meditate twice a day.Since then, the high school junior says he is
 so inspired he can't stop doodling in class. ''I'm a whole lot happier," he said.Cristina Silva can be reached at [EMAIL PROTECTED].  © Copyright 2006 Globe Newspaper Company.

MMY 3/15/06

Journalist and photographer are there from New York Times

MMY: Jai Guru Dev. Open some questions.

NY Times reporter:

Q: How does Maharishi enjoy himself? What is the most important 
thing he
has learned in his life?

MMY: How to enjoy and how TM takes the mind to TC, the level of 
blissful
consciousness. Now is the time to create groups of people who can 
enjoy
this and radiate bliss so that all the things that are not enjoyable 
in life
will disappear.



Q: Why isn¹t your message of inner peace enough? Why are you 
expanding the
message?

MMY. There millions of people everywhere. It is question of 
reaching all of
them.

Q: Does this move to group practice reflect your expansion as a 
human
being?

MMY: Yes. This group flying and bubbling in bliss comes from the 
individual
experience.

Q: People are still skeptical of YF as no one has actual done more 
than
hop. Isn¹t it better to get TM out to everyone free and see what 
other ideas
come out of people on their own?

MMY: Teaching free does not work. People don¹t value anything for 
free.
Wealthy people will not go for anything free. Poor people are too 
busy
working to do it. and then the teachers end up poor and have to take 
job.
Everyone wants money. So then I though make it a fee. It is not a 
matter of
money. It is a matter of a technique of bliss. Why should my 
teachers who
spend time developing this remain free. Governments have billions of
dollars. Why should they expect my teachers to teach for free? It is 
not a
matter of money. Don¹t waste my time on superficial values.

Q: Where does that consciousness come from that makes you want to 
help
everybody?

MMY: Comes from the role of the parent to nourish the children. It 
is beyond
your understanding to appreciate this. Don¹t waste my time.

Q: How does the transformation come from inner life to help people. 
To be
concerned with the group rather than the individual.

MMY: Many people are practicing these Indian values.

Q: Why do you not talk to the inner values of human beings instead 
of terms
like heaven on earth and kings?

MMY: I know better what words to use.

>From CNN producer doing documentary on rise of spirituality in world 
today:

Q: How does MMY define spirituality?

MMY: Spirituality defines people from material world. I am telling 
people
that the light of God is within you.

Q: How does TM create spirituality?

MMY: Spirituality is transcendental in nature. Total light of God. 
Unified
Field according to physics.

Q: Why are so many young people interested in TM today?

MMY: It is not how and why. It is matter of when the message 
reaches the
young people. It is a fifty year thing. The story is old. It is not 
a CNN
story of today. Many of the reporters writing today were not even 
born when
I started, If that is the journalism today then damn it. It is a 
waste of
time. These great writers! Always American or British. What they 
write is
not the basis of why I exist. It is not the basis of how the world 
will
change. Writers have very insignificant place in the life of the 
leaders.
Integrated national consciousness will be created whether you write 
about it
or not. These people just want to make money writing about it. I 
have no
objection but don¹t waste my time. My message is not on publicity 
but on the
effectiveness of the program. I am very disappointed with the 
questions of
that lady. Complete waste of time.

End CNN questions.

Q: About ability of sound to have an influence everywhere?

MMY: It is on the TC level. Beyond space and time. That is 
consciously
reached by the human life, I applaud UNESCO pronouncement that Vedic
recitation is the common heritage of mankind.

Q: What is the role of belief in TM and MMY¹s other programs?

MMY: Belief is not important. It is too superficial. This is real. 
If it is
real one enjoys. Faith or no faith. When the man goes through the 
process of
learning, then he goes to TC whether he likes it or not. It is 
something
very real to life.

Q: What happens to sleep and dreaming in UC. Where does one go when 
one
sleeps in UC?

MMY: UC is fully awake consciousness. Sleep and dreaming are relative
states. They change all the time. In UC, the unity consciousness 
will be
fully awake at all time. Reality of life will be in UC. The ocean is 
always
transcendental to the waves. This T value cannot be contrived. It is 
its own
state.

>From NY Times. (MMY asked John to re-phrase the question)

[FairfieldLife] Fwd: [Transcendental_Meditation] Study shows Maharishi Ayurveda reduces toxic chemicals

2006-03-31 Thread Ron F



Study: Maharishi Ayur Veda Reduces Toxic Chemicals  Banned PCBs and agrochemicals in blood reduced 50 percent by centuries-olddetoxification procedure.Study published in the Sept./Oct. 2002 issue of Alternative Therapies inHealth and Medicine, Vol. 8, No. 5, pp. 93-103.- PRESS RELEASE -Banned PCBs and Agrochemicals in Blood Reduced 50 PercentBy Centuries-Old Detoxification Procedure, Study  Shows---"The issue of
 possible human health effects of persistent organochlorinesubstances is an ongoing concern and area of important scientificinvestigation. This report has implications for the mobilization of andclearance of persistent fat-soluble xenobiotics and could serve as astepping-stone towards randomized controlled trials on the efficacy of thesemethods." - Laurence Fuortes, M.D., Professor, College of Public Health,University of Iowa---Toxic occupational and agricultural chemicals that are stored in thebody-and known to cause disease-can be significantly reduced by an Ayurvedicdetoxification procedure, according to a report released today.The study, published in the Sept./Oct. 2002 issue of Alternative Therapiesin Health and Medicine, found that a centuries-old purification  procedurederived from the Ayurvedic medical system of India reduced severalfat-soluble
 toxicants by about 50 percent."This is the first published study on humans to demonstrate that a specificdetoxification regimen can significantly reduce levels of lipophilictoxicants in the blood that are known to be associated with disease," saysRobert Herron, Ph.D., lead author of the study and Director of Research atthe Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy at MaharishiUniversity of Management in Fairfield, Iowa.Cross-sectional and Longitudinal ComparisonsThe study consisted of two parts: a cross-sectional comparison and alongitudinal pre- and post-treatment.Eighty-eight subjects, age 45 years and older, participated in thecross-sectional study: 48 had previously undergone the detoxificationprocedure an average of 18 times and 40 had not. Blood samples from bothgroups were sent to the Analytical Laboratory  in the Department ofEnvironmental Health at Colorado State University that was
 blind to thetreatment status of the subjects.PCBs and Pesticides Found in Blood SamplesBlood samples from both cross-sectional groups were assayed for 17lipophilic toxicants, including 9 polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congenersand 8 pesticides and metabolites, such as DDE, a by-product of DDT. Thespecific PCBs and pesticides that were studied either had been previouslylinked to major health problems or have been of high concern for theirpotential toxicity.The results showed blood levels of PCBs and several pesticides weresignificantly lower in the detoxification group than in the controls.Herron says that lipophilic toxicants are generally considered to be amongthe most problematic environmental contaminants and many of them have beenbanned in the U.S. for decades. Because of their fat-soluble nature andtheir long half-lives, they  tend to accumulate in plants and animals andbio-magnify up the food
 chain, increasing in humans with age. Previousstudies show that these toxicants have been associated with hormonedisruption, immune system suppression, reproductive disorders, several typesof cancer, and other diseases.Lipophil-mediated Detoxification ProcedureIn the longitudinal study, blood samples from 15 subjects who participatedin the Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health (MVAH) Ayurvedic detoxificationprocedure were assayed, pre- and post-treatment, by CSU's AnalyticalLaboratory.Ayurveda dates back thousands of years in India and is recognized by theWorld Health Organization as a complete system of natural medicine.  However,due to several foreign invasions over
 the centuries, it has been slowly, butsubstantially altered. Starting in 1984, Ayurveda was restored andstandardized in accordance with the classical texts of India under thedirection of a leading Vedic scholar, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder ofMaharishi University of Management and world-renowned for introducing theTranscendental Meditation® technique.Striking Reductions in PCBs and Beta-HCH LevelsThe results of the two-month longitudinal study showed that PCBs andBeta-HCH levels were reduced by 46 percent and 58 percent respectively inthe MVAH detoxification group. Without this intervention, the expected dropin PCBs and Beta-HCH over two months would be only a fraction of onepercent. Previously, no method had been scientifically verified to reducelevels of  these lipid-soluble toxicants in
 the human body without causingnegative side effects.How Lipophil-mediated Detoxification May WorkLipophilic toxicants are stored in lipids, or fats, in the body, and arefat-soluble in nature. Several modalities in the Maharishi Vedic Approach toHealth detoxification procedure use

  February  2006Enlightened DesignVedic architecture employs ancient design principles to promote peace and well-being.  BY SUSAN HODARA, PHOTOSBY LINDA BELL HALLIn the four years that Terry and Bernard Nevas have lived in their Weston, Conn., home, their lives, they will tell you, have never been better. Their sleep is refreshing, their meals are nourishing, their work is productive. Though their two children
 are grown, Ms. Nevas says she feels "a deepening richness of experience within our family." As for their 30-year marriage, Mr. Nevas says, "We had a perfect marriage before we moved into our vastu, and now it is even more perfect."  The Nevases' vastu is their airy, sun-filled, 4,200-square-foot home situated at the top of a winding, tree-lined driveway. "Vastu" is the Indian word for a structure built according to the ancient architectural principles known as Sthapathya Ved—one of 40 Vedic bodies of knowledge dating back to 2500 B.C. and addressing a range of topics from the arts to the sciences. Sthapathya Ved, which some say lent concepts to the Chinese feng shui, dictates the precise layout, orientation, and dimensions—down to 1/16 of an inch—for a building that is aligned most closely with the laws of nature, and thereby maximizes the well-being of its inhabitants.  Currently in the planning stages is the first Sthapathya Ved home in New York. The house will be built on four acres in Bedford Hills by Elizabeth and Hollis Taggart, who are currently renting in Bedford, and who have constructed two other Sthapathya Ved homes, one in Boone, N.C., and one on Kiawah Island, S.C. What convinced them to build a Sthapathya Ved house here, says Ms. Taggart, a writer, was their seven-year-old son, Lincoln. "After we'd been in our rental for seven months, he told me, 'I love this house, but I don't feel as protected here,' she says. "That was last February. We started looking for land in March."  Terry and Bernard Nevas learned of Sthapathya Ved through their over 30 years of meditation and involvement with Transcendental Meditation. They are the directors of the Maharishi Enlightenment Center of Mid-Fairfield County, currently located in their home, where
 they teach meditation. They built their house in collaboration with Neil Hauck, of Neil Hauck Architects, LLC, in Darien, Conn., and a Sthapathya Ved architectural consultant in Iowa responsible for ensuring that the design conformed to Vedic principles. The homeowners, directors of the Maharishi Enlightenment Center of Mid-Fairfield County, say of their home, "It all feels right."Sthapathya Ved buildings have been constructed across the globe in an assortment of styles, including log cabins, Swiss chalets, and stone villas. The Taggart home, says Ms. Taggart, blends "the best of American architecture." The Nevas residence is a hybrid, says Hauck, of "colonial
 and Connecticut farmhouse with classical Italianate influences." But regardless of size, form, or location, all such homes have common elements.  One is a fence surrounding the structure; the Nevases' is white picket. "The vastu fence delineates an area around the house that is protected," says Mr. Nevas. "Its placement is determined mathematically."   Atop the house are five conical finials—kalashes, in Sanskrit—positioned where sections of the roof intersect. Their role, Mr. Nevas explains, is to connect the individual to the cosmos, and he adds, he and Ms. Nevas have experienced their power. While constructing another Sthapathya Ved home in North Carolina a decade ago, they made regular visits to monitor its progress. "At one point," Mr. Nevas says, "we arrived at night. It hadn't been long since our last visit, and not much had been done, but something was different. We felt peaceful and energized, but we didn't know why. The next morning, we saw that the
 kalash had been placed on the roof." On a side table stands a portrait of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of transcendental meditation and the homeowners' teacher.Another feature of a Vedic home is its Brahmasthan, the exact center, again 

[FairfieldLife] Yet another article- G harrison/Maharsihi

2006-02-19 Thread Ron F



The spat between the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1968 became an instant pop legend as perhaps the most bitter bust-up in the era of Free Love.  Now, after almost four decades of rumour and counter-rumour, a
 confidant of both sides has gone public with revelations that could upset many of the band's fans.  The spiritualist and author Deepak Chopra, a former maharishi disciple and a friend of the late George Harrison, has said that contrary to popular myth, the row was nothing to do with claims that the maharishi made sexual advances on Mia Farrow, the actress and friend of the band.   Instead, he said, the maharishi had objected to the group taking drugs at his home in Rishikesh, northern India. Dr Chopra told the Sunday Telegraph: "What isn't generally known is that the maharishi had got fed up with the Beatles taking drugs while they were at his ashram [spiritual home].  They were smoking ganja [cannabis] and taking LSD. He hadn't come across anything like that before and he took a strong view."   The group had gone to the ashram in search of spiritual enlightenment, meditating during
 the day and writing songs in the evening. According to reports, they consumed no alcohol or drugs when they first arrived and kept to a strict vegetarian diet.  A few weeks into their much-publicised sojourn, however, relations soured between the guru and the band's entourage. In a subsequent television interview, John Lennon and Paul McCartney said they had lost interest in the maharishi's teachings.   Dr Chopra said of the rumour that the guru had misbehaved with Farrow, who was part of the entourage: "There was never any truth to stories about the maharishi's womanising. When he was sick in the UK, he wouldn't even allow any female nurses near him.   "As for the stuff about Mia Farrow, that was complete nonsense. I met her years later and she asked me to tell the maharishi that she still loved him," he said.   Dr Chopra said Harrison later apologised to the maharishi during a visit
 to his meditation centre at Vlodrop in Holland where he now lives as a recluse. Nobody at the centre was available for comment.

[FairfieldLife] M Enl. Centers opening in Cedar rapids

Peace palace plans pending
Maharishi opens centers


By Mike McWilliams?Iowa City Press-Citizen
ADVERTISEMENT?

A little more than a month after Iowa City's first Maharishi Enlightenment 
Center
opened, project officials said they expect to open another location soon -- at 
the
Old Capitol Town Center.
We wish we could have done these projects a little bit faster, said Kent 
Boyum,
co-director of the Peace Palace Project in Iowa City. But we do have the one 
MEC
open and we'll have the second one in the mall open as soon as we can ... 
hopefully
in six to eight weeks.
Boyum said the first MEC opened Nov. 12 in a suite at 205 E. Burlington St. 
These
Maharishi Enlightenment Centers are like day spas that offer about 60 different
products and services, including classes on transcendental meditation, massage
therapy and various herbal and organic products.
It was taking us a bit longer than we wanted to get that organized, Boyum 
said of
the Old Capitol location in a space north of Taco Bell on the mall's first 
floor.
That's why we ended up opening the 205 E. Burlington St., location, too.
There also are plans to open a third MEC in Coralville. Boyum said there are 
eight
MECs in Iowa cities, including Ames, Des Moines, Cedar Rapids, Fairfield and 
Vedic
City.
Meanwhile, Boyum said there are still plans to build a $3 million, two-story 
Peace
Palace in the Iowa City area. Although a site has not been confirmed, Boyum 
said a
couple locations, including one in Coralville, are being considered.
Final architectural renderings of the Peace Palace are done, but Boyum said he
hasn't received them yet.
Proponents say the effects of a relaxing day spa and palace include reduced 
crime, a
healthier society and peace that could eventually spread worldwide.
Boyum said business is doing well at the Burlington Street location and a recent
open house there drew about 50 people.
MEC director Anthony Antimuro is one of four employees at the Iowa City MEC.
Antimuro was the director of the MEC in Ames before recently moving to Iowa 
City. He
graduated from the University of Iowa in 1971 with math and computer science
degrees.
Antimuro said the Peace Palace would be built according to Vedic architecture, 
which
incorporates building orientation and proportion to other buildings into the 
design.
Eventually, Antimuro said the hope to include a Maharishi Peace University, a
greenhouse and field operations to grow organic foods.
Antimuro said he hopes to start scouting for land once the Old Capitol MEC is 
up and
running.
We would like to have anywhere from four to 100 or more acres, Antimuro said.
We're just looking for nice land that's going to be at a good price, and it's 
got
to be oriented properly because orientation is a big aspect of Vedic 
architecture.
A non-profit organization called Global Country of World Peace is spearheading 
the
efforts to put up roughly 300 enlightenment centers and about 3,000 Peace 
Palaces worldwide.

[FairfieldLife] MMY- Beacon Light of Himalayas 1955, Diksha for sanyas, Sadana

2006-01-03 Thread Ron F
note: this url is in Russian at the top then goes into English

http://www.tm-sekta.narod.ru/maharishi-book10.htm#%E4%E2%E0%20%F0%E0%E7%EB%E8%F7%ED%FB%F5


While making a reference to the Mantras, in this manner, I feel like touching a 
very
vital aspect of Sadhna[sic], which things are blurred in the present atmosphere 
of
too much talk of Vedanta.
Obviously enough there are two ways of life, the way of life of a Sanyasi and 
the
way of life of a householder. One is quite opposed to the other. A Sanyasi 
renounces
every thing of the world, whereas a householder needs and accumulates 
everything.
Shastras declare both the ways of life to be the paths of emancipation. Both are
said to be the Moksha-Marga Nivarthi Marga and 'Privathi Marga'. The one 
realises
through renunciation and detachment, while the other goes through all 
attachments
and accumulation or all that is needed tor physical life. We have two different 
sets
of Mantras (29) to suit the two ways of life. Mantras for the Sanyasis have the
effect of increasing the sense of detachment and renunciation, and also have the
power of destroying the objects of worldly affections, if there should survive 
any
such objects for him. Quite contrary to this are the Mantras suitable for the
householder which have the efficacy of harmonising and enriching the material 
aspect
of life also.
The Mantras of the Sanyasi have a destructive effect in the material field of 
life,
whereas the Mantras suited to the householder envisage constructive values also.
Om is the Mantra for the Sanyasi. The Sanyasi repeats Om Om Om. It is 
given
to him at the time of 'Sanyas-Diksha', at the time when he has completely 
renounced
attachment to the world. Renunciation and detachment increase with the 
repetition of
'Om', 'Om' is chanted aloud by a Sanyasi to put on end to his desires. Desire 
are
destroyed by loudly chanting the mantra 'Om'. And if there is of any desire 
deeply
rooted in the mind of the Sanyasi, the chanting of 'Om' will result in 
destruction
of the object of such desire in order to make the Sanyasi wholly desireless. The
Sanyasi attains peace through the renunciation and destruction of desires, 
whereas
the peace comes to the householder when his needs are satisfied, when his 
desires
are fulfilled. The mantras for the householders have the effect of fulfilling 
the
desires.
If unfortunately the householder begins to repeat the pranava Mantra viz. 'Om', 
'Om
Om' he experiences destructive effects in his material life. The effect starts 
with
monetary loss and then goes on to destroy objects of affection, one by one. 
Such a
man, when he finds loss of money and separation from the dear ones, he is 
reduced to
utter peacelessness and frustration. Where is the chance of spiritual 
development or
experience of Peace and happiness for such a dejected soul? The path of
peacelessness and misery in the world cannot lead to Eternal happiness. If the 
man
is proceeding towards Eternal happiness, every day he should feel the increase 
of
peace and happiness, and this alone will assure him that he is proceeding 
towards
abiding peace and eternal happiness. If you walk towards the light you should be
able to feel the increase crease of light at every step. If you are spending 
some
time in devotion to God, you should feel peace and happiness in life. If you 
are not
feeling peace and happiness you should be wise enough to a doubt the 
correctness of
your devotion, you should be wise enough to thin that your method of devotion is
wrong (30), that the Mantras that you are repeating do not suit you. The mantras
that suit the Sanyasis can never suit the householders. Hundreds of God-loving 
and
God-fearing families, have been ruined due to the destructive effects of Sanyasa
Mantra viz, Om. Om destroys desires and also destroys the objects of 
desires and
therefore it produces calmness of mind and renunciation and detachment from 
material
life only to Sanyasis when they repeat Om; to them it brings the experience of 
peace
of mind and from this experience they generally recommend the chanting of 'Om' 
to
their followers. But when a householder repeats Om, he experiences that as long 
as
he is repeating 'Om' he feels peace of mind, but when he comes out to indulge in
business or household work, he finds that the air is against his desire and 
schemes.
The silencing effect on the mind and destructive effects in material life, both 
are
experienced side by side. Some people say that we should ignore material life in
regard to the devotional practices and Mantras. But this is a fool's ideology. 
Can
you possibly ignore the considerations of material life, when the Mantras do 
affect
it? Select a path which will make you happier in your material life also. Do not
live in a fool's paradise. Do not think that your sufferings end miseries of 
today
will work as reservations in the galleries of heaven for tomorrow. Be peaceful 
and
happy in the present and try to make this state

 MAHARISHI: I see the destruction of the destroyers - whatever little they may
 have remained. I see the dawn of a new fortune for mankind. I see human race
 rising to a level of enlightenment, full of knowledge, in tune with the
 Constitution of the Universe which administers the universe with perfect 
 order and
 always perfect order and always perfect order.
 
 It is not my wish. With the grace of Guru Dev, with the grace of the Vedic
 tradition the eternal light of the constitution of the world is being brought 
 to
 the human awareness now and I have counted these very important countries in 
 the
 world Switzerland, Denmark, Germany, Holland to be rising in dignity and 
 shaking
 off the slavery to foreign powers. Whatever may be the foreign power. But now 
 all
 these countries will be the shining star in the family of nations to guide the
 destiny of the rest of the countries in the world. It is not a wish. It is 
 being
 brought about by the arrow of knowledge that has left the bow and is going to
 purify the world consciousness.

Dear Friends,
Mung Dahl
Once again, it is time to reorder the fabulous organic split mung bean dahl. It
comes in 25 lb bags and is 3.75 per pound plus shipping. I will take orders for 
25
lb bags and some 15 lbs., 10 lbs and some 5 lbs. The smaller bags are very time
consuming to break up and bag so the price for those is including buying the 
bags is
$4.25 per lb. ( for 5 and 10).
Please email your order as soon as possible, if interested. We have to get at 
least
200 lbs and so we need to presell it.

Please include your street shipping address for UPS delivery, your phone 
number, and
how you would like to pay for your order.

With best regards,

[FairfieldLife] Correction- sale price was 22.3 Million

Blackstone Is in Line for $112M Overhaul
By Mark Ruda
Last updated: June 15, 2005  08:21am

CHICAGO-Sage Hospitality Resources, LLC is buying
the historic Blackstone Hotel, converting it to a
Marriott Renaissance franchise in a $112-million
renovation. In addition to upgrading the 327 rooms,
the Crystal Ballroom and adding 12,000 sf of
meeting space, Denver-based Sage Hospitality
Resources will spend about $20 million alone on
restoring the 97-year-old hotel’s terra cotta
facade.

The city’s community development commission has
endorsed up to $18 million in tax increment
financing, about 16% of the project’s cost, which
could be reduced if Sage Hospitality Resources
succeeds in getting more than $14 million from the
sale of new market tax credits. The TIF assistance
will be reduced dollar for dollar if new market tax
credit proceeds exceed $14 million.

Sage Hospitality Resources executive vice president
Kenneth J. Geist says his company has been
attempting to acquire the hotel at 636 S. Michigan
Ave. for five years. The property has been vacant
since 1999 as plans by Tennessee-based Maharishi
Global Development Fund to convert the building
into about 100 luxury condominiums have fizzled.

Although Maharishi Global Development Fund has
sought a much higher price, according to the city’s
department of planning and development, Sage
Hospitality Resources has struck a deal to buy the
321,516-sf asset overlooking Grant Park for $22.3
million. Still, city appraisals place the value of
the hotel at $16 million to $19 million.

When complete, the appraised value of the
Blackstone Hotel--the name will be retained under
the Marriott Renaissance flag--is likely to be less
than the total cost of Sage Hospitality Resources’
project, department of planning and development
officials say. The building, which has hosted
several US presidents, is in a “severe state of
disrepair,” they add. McHugh Construction and
architect Lucien LaGrange have been hired for the
work.

Geist says his company will hand over a deposit for
the purchase of the hotel, with a closing to follow
city council approval. JP Morgan Fleming Asset
Management is expected to provide financing, he
adds. Work could start later this year, with an
opening in the middle of 2007, he says.

The city assistance for the redevelopment is
opposed by Unite Here Local 1, which represents
14,000 Chicago hotel workers. The union notes the
total cost is $345,000 per room, which overshadows
the expected sales price of Hilton Corp.’s Palmer
House as well as the Fairmont’s sale earlier this
year. The union marked its second anniversary
Tuesday of its strike against the Congress Hotel,
located one block north. The union’s Pittsburgh
local and Sage have wrangled in that city. “Sage
must take steps to ensure the city’s investment in
this project is not put at risk of another bitter,
embarrassing labor dispute,” says Local 1 research
director Lars Negstad.

Guru 'lives without food or water'
From Catherine Philp in Delhi 



Jani: astounded doctors

FORGET David Blaine and his mere 44 days of fasting: an ageing Indian guru
has handed himself over to doctors to prove his claim that he has survived
nearly seven decades without food or water with no apparent damage to his
health. Prahlad Jani, 76, emerged from hospital in Ahmadabad at the weekend
after ten days of close surveillance, with doctors no closer to disproving his
claim. During his time locked in a glass room watched over by closed-circuit
cameras, he was not seen to eat Although they can neither prove nor disprove
his claim to have lasted this way for decades, doctors are baffled. Sudhir Shah,
the neurologist who oversaw the test, said: “He has evidence of the formation
of urine, which was reabsorbed on his bladder wall. Mr Jani made the journey to
Ahmadabad from the remote cave where he lives as a hermit after being
challenged to prove his claim of having gone without food or water for decades.
He claims that his talent is the result of a blessing from the goddess Ambaji
Doctors had prepared a special glass-walled room equipped with CCTV cameras
to monitor his activities. The lavatory adjacent to the room was sealed to test
his claim that he had no need to urinate or defecate. The only fluid that he was
allowed was a smal Doctors had intended to halt the exercise after seven days,
but carried on after tests showed Mr Jani to be in perfect health. At the end of
ten days, he left the hospital as a team of more than 40 doctors continued to
puzzle over his condition. Mr Jani offered his own explanation, yet to be tested
by the doctors. “I get the elixir of life from the hole in my palate, which
enables
me to go without food and water,â€? he said.

   Global Country of World   Peace   Maharishi’s Message to the World   Press  
 “THE
 TIME OF DARKNESS IS   OVER”  Rajas Inaugurate Capital of the 
 Global Country of World Peace 
 in   Washington, D.C.  To Promote Automation in Administration 
 for   Problem-Free Life in Peace and Bliss   
   His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi proclaimed this week   that the “time of
 darkness in the world” is over and that the whole world family   will soon 
 enjoy
 the “brightness of the midday sun”—a time of permanent world   peace, free 
 from
 problems and conflict, when everyone will live in bliss and   enlightenment.
   Maharishi’s proclamation came during his global address   for the 
 inauguration
 of the new Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in   Washington, D.C. 
 on
 November 12—the “Day of Awakening of Permanent World Peace”   in the annual 
 Vedic
 calendar. Maharishi spoke via satellite and internet webcast   from the 
 Capital of
 the Global Country of World Peace in Meru,   Holland.
   Maharishi   said the new Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in
 Washington will be   the center of Total Knowledge of Natural Law—the 
 Constitution
 of the   Universe—which governs the infinite diversity of the universe with
 perfect   order. From the new Capital of the Global Country of World Peace,
 Maharishi   said, the Peace Government will   promote perfect
 government—automation in administration—in America and every   other nation 
 in the
 world. 
   “Today,   we are celebrating the awakening of the infinite potential of 
 human
 life on   earth—perfect harmony and infinite bliss within everyone,” Maharishi
 said.   “Soon every individual will   rise to enlightenment and every nation 
 will
 rise to invincibility—and enjoy life   free from problems, suffering, and 
 fear,”
 Maharishi   said.
   Only the Constitution of the Universe can bring   satisfaction to all the 
 people
   Maharishi acknowledged the sincere efforts of governments   throughout the 
 world
 to promote problem-free administration. However, Maharishi   said, their
 widespread failures are due to a misplaced dependence on manmade   
 constitutions.
 “Manmade constitutions will never be able to satisfy all the   needs of human
 life. Only the divinely inspired Constitution of the   Universe—which 
 promotes the
 evolution of everyone and everything, from point to   infinity, in the
 ever-expanding galactic universe—will put all of life in the   evolutionary
 direction so that everyone always enjoys bliss and fulfillment,”   Maharishi 
 said.
   Public statements and attempting to destroy the enemy   will not help the 
 nation
   Maharishi dismissed government leaders who issue “grand   public statements”
 about the safety and security of the nation—and rely on the   military to
 safeguard the people—without producing any actual positive effect of   peace 
 in
 the country. “The only way to help the nation is to enliven the   invincible 
 field
 of Total Natural Law within the Self of everyone through   Transcendental
 Meditation and Yogic Flying—and to establish groups of Yogic   Flyers to 
 create
 the light of coherence in national consciousness. This is the   only way to 
 help
 the nation—this is the only way to prevent the darkness of   negativity from
 arising anywhere in the nation or the world,” Maharishi   said.
   His Highness Raja Dr. Dean Dodrill presided over the   inaugural ceremonies
   His Highness Raja Dr. Dean Dodrill, Raja of Washington,   presided over the
 inaugural ceremonies in Washington, D.C. Raja Dean was joined   by His 
 Highness
 Raja Bob LoPinto, Raja of Vedic Potomac, and the Rajas of five   other 
 domains of
 the Global Country of World Peace in the United   States.
   His Excellency Dr. John Hagelin, President of the US   Peace Government and
 Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of   World Peace,
 addressed the inaugural ceremonies via satellite from Maharishi   Vedic City,
 Iowa. His Excellency Dr. Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global   Country 
 of
 World Peace, spoke via satellite from the Capital of the Global   Country of 
 World
 Peace in Meru, Holland.
   “Soon, we will announce that the supreme programs of   Total Natural Law 
 will be
 delivered to the nation and the world from the Capital   of the Global 
 Country of
 World Peace in Washington, D.C.,” Raja Dean said.   “Students will be taught 
 how
 to awaken the Constitution of the Universe within   themselves. They will be 
 like
 the sun with its enlightening rays spreading   everywhere, touching everyone. 
 They
 will show that human life is not meant to be   lived in darkness.”

 pilgrimage
 
From Chris Higgins of Natural Law Forum
  
 A book by Steve Briggs received from a friend in Australia   
  
 India: Mirror of Truth A Seven Year Pilgrimage 
  
 India: Mirror of Truth is the true story of a young American monk sent to 
  
 India by his guru to teach meditation. His life-transforming seven-year  
 spiritual odyssey takes him from the coastal waters of Kerala to the high  
 Tibetan plateau. Along the way, he encounters saints and shamans, politicians 
  
 and pundits, astrologers and ascetics, villagers and artisans. He visits 
 ancient  
 holy sites, meets swamis living at the source of the Ganges, participates in  
 arcane purificatory rituals, experiences the excitement of thirty million  
 pilgrims at the Kumbha Mela as guest of a maharaja, initiates India's elite 
 into  
 meditation, and shares the company of lamas at Tibetan monasteries in Ladakh 
 in  
 an awesome journey that is as culturally rich as it is spiritually stirring.  
 Deep within the Himalayan peaks, he reunites with his ageless Himalayan 
 Master  
 patiently waiting for his return. The author's dream of pursuing 
 enlightenment  
 is realized when he renounces his work in
  order to seek spiritual liberation in   an isolated mountain ashram. 
  
 http://www.diesel-ebooks.com/cgi-bin/item/159540967X   
  
 excerpt. 
  
 ...on meeting with Maharishi: 
  
 Upon arriving at Maharishi's headquarters in Holland on my stopover from  
  the
 States to India, I had been struck by the seemingly impenetrable fortress of  
  a
 former Franciscan monastery hidden deep in a Dutch national forest. For the   
 next
 five weeks, along with three other Americans, we met with Maharishi to   
 discuss
 plans for two proposed projects for India: establishing management   
 institutes
 and teaching Transcendental Meditation to corporations. It had been   almost 
 ten
 years since I had seen Maharishi, and although he had aged, he still   had
 superhuman reserves of energy and stamina. Maharishi was almost eighty,   
 forty
 years my senior, but I found it impossible to keep up with him. Meetings  
 routinely went late into the night, but he never seemed to slow down. When he 
  
 finally sent us off to rest a few hours before sunrise, a secretary ushered 
 in  
 yet another group for their meeting. Maharishi's stamina was legendary, his  
 focus unrelenting. 
  
 Meetings with Maharishi were unpredictable, entertaining, and always a  
 lesson in world geography. A conference call from Latvia came in on one of 
 the  
 many phones manned by the secretaries. Later, with precision and patience,  
 Maharishi answered questions on a project to build a school in South Africa 
 and  
 reviewed a proposal to buy laser technology for an operating theater in a 
 Delhi  
 hospital. Line by line he reviewed an announcement for the Washington Post 
 and  
 then listened to a report from his college in Cambodia. Then a delegation 
 from  
 Thailand was escorted into the hall followed by a Bombay industrialist and 
 his  
 family who offered bouquets of red and yellow tulips to Maharishi before  
 catching a flight back to India. Maharishi then briefed a German general 
 about  
 implementing meditation in the armed forces. Guests and dignitaries from all  
 over the globe came and went as Maharishi's attention moved from continent to 
  
 continent with the agility of an acrobat
  in his relentless search for solutions   to problems that even governments
 refused to tackle. The backlit globe on his   table spun like a top as his 
 index
 finger came to rest on country after country.   Raise the collective 
 consciousness
 of the people and you will solve the nation's   problems was his rallying 
 cry. 
  
 One late night, after the guests had gone and our work was finished, we  
 relaxed with Maharishi in his spacious and silky suite inside the old 
 monastery.  
 I relished every minute with my guru, but those rare moments when the 
 planning  
 for the world stopped, were my favorites. An attendant served fresh juice 
 while  
 Maharishi enquired about our stay. Maharishi's long-time personal secretary,  
 Nandkishore, was the only other person in the room with us. Nandkishore owned 
 an  
 infectious laugh even more contagious than Maharishi's and I imagined the two 
 of  
 them shaking with laughter for hours on end. But that night, the dynamics 
 were  
 different. Whenever Nandkishore spoke, Maharishi disagreed with his loyal  
 assistant, a drama that went on for the better part of an hour. 
  
 Of course, Maharishi was the master, but I couldn't help thinking  
 Nandkishore's ideas were

 Clearing up facts about Transcendental Meditation
 Guest Commentary
 By Bob Roth 
 November 17, 2005
 I appreciate serious, informed debate over new ideas and concepts. In that
 light, I offer the following facts in response to your editorial Thursday
 (“Meditation movement lacks proper credentials,” ODE Nov. 10).
 Fact: The National Institutes of Health has granted $20 million to study the
 health benefits of Transcendental Meditation — in particular, benefits for
 reducing heart disease, hypertension and the effects of a stroke. This
 research has been published in leading, peer-reviewed scientific journals.
 The studies have been conducted by the NIH-funded Center for Natural
 Medicine and Prevention at Maharishi University of Management as well as by
 more than a dozen other independent universities and health centers,
 including Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles and the West Oakland Health
 Center in Oakland, Calif.
 Fact: Three hundred students at American University in Washington, D.C., are
 now taking part in a two-year study by the AU Psychology Department on the
 effects of TM on brain, behavior and health. Similar studies are now under
 way on the effects of TM on ADHD, high blood pressure, grades and overall
 academic achievement, anxiety and depression, and substance abuse at middle
 schools, high schools and universities around the country.
 Fact: Research on the effects of collective Transcendental Meditation
 practice has been published in several peer-reviewed journals, including the
 Journal of Conflict Resolution, Social Indicators Research and the Journal
 of Mind and Behavior.
 Fact: There is no scientific evidence to suggest that all meditation
 practices are the same. In fact, over the past 30 years, there have been
 several meta-analyses distinguishing the effects of TM from other techniques
  including studies published in the American Psychologist, the Journal of
 Clinical Psychology and the Journal of Social Behaviour and Personality.
 Fact: The course fee to learn Transcendental Meditation is about the same as
 the cost of a 3-unit course at most universities. However, the TM course is
 not just one semester but includes personal instruction from a qualified TM
 instructor as well as a lifetime of follow-up meditation instruction at
 thousands of meditation centers around the United States and the world. The
 Lynch Foundation is providing full scholarships to students at schools,
 colleges and universities throughout the country.
 Fact: Transcendental Meditation is not a religion. It is taught and
 practiced by people (and clergy) of all religions — and to people with no
 religious beliefs. Well before scientists began to explore the effects of TM
  a judge in New Jersey in 1979 concluded there were religious elements to
 the teaching of TM. However, as we all know, there is a long tradition in
 the American judicial system (see civil rights in the south), where
 decisions are overturned with new evidence. Transcendental Meditation is
 offered to students of all religions in scores of educational institutions
 throughout the United States.
 David Lynch did not come to the University of Oregon to persuade anyone to
 meditate. He came to answer questions about his filmmaking, his creative
 process and his meditation practice. And to offer, if anyone is interested,
 to help provide them with the tools to “dive within.” It was — and is — a
 simple, genuine offer from a brilliant artist and a rare human being.
 Best wishes.
 Bob Roth is the Vice President for the David Lynch Foundation for
 Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace

 Meditation movement lacks proper credentials
 Editorial
 By Emerald editorial board
 November 10, 2005
 A sold-out crowd packed into 150 Columbia Tuesday night to hear famous 
 filmmaker David Lynch speak. Perhaps they came to learn about the meaning of 
 his 
 dark films, but Lynch primarily used his time to promote the controversial 
 practice of Transcendental Meditation.
 A practitioner of TM for 32 years, Lynch wants to raise billions of dollars 
 to teach it to any child in America who wants to learn it. Like many TM 
 proponents, Lynch, accompanied by two “experts,â€? described TM as a way to
 usher in 
 world peace and achieve greater personal effectiveness. Lynch and his 
 comrades 
 couched the practice in scientific terms.
 But they didn’t give the audience the whole story.
 Now famous as the Beatles’ one-time guru, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi founded TM 
 in 
 India in 1958 as the outgrowth of a Hindu spiritual movement. Since then, 
 more than 6 million people have learned TM, according to the organization’s 
 Web 
 site. Learning the technique costs $2,500.
 At first, TM practitioners meditate for about 20 minutes twice daily with 
 their eyes closed, repeating a syllabic phrase or “mantraâ€? to reach 
 “pure 
 awareness� and rid themselves of conscious thought.
 We don’t dispute the fact that meditation in general can be calming and 
 beneficial. Yet we raise questions consumers should seriously consider before 
 purchasing this commodity as a means to attain peace.
 First, we question the high cost. During his speech, Lynch said people who 
 really want peace will find the money to pay for TM classes. Some advocates 
 say 
 the cost ensures the TM movement will persevere and grow, and that the price 
 wouldn’t seem outrageous if we lived in a culture that values meditation. 
 Yet 
 people can learn many types of meditation for free from books and classes. 
 Proponents claim the TM mantras are more effective than repeating secular 
 sounds, 
 but some books on meditation say otherwise.
 We also question the scientific merits of TM. Advocates claim a multitude of 
 scientific studies validate the physiological benefits of TM. Many of these 
 studies, however, are conducted at the organization’s own Maharishi 
 University 
 of Management and they are not necessarily published in peer-reviewed 
 journals. 
 Any scholars thinking about trying TM should check out these scientific 
 claims, especially those that suggest TM is different from other forms of 
 meditation. We also cannot find any credible evidence to support the claim 
 that TM
 
 creates peace by “radiating an influence of harmony to your 
 surroundings.� In 
 light of the recent heated debate over the scientific merit of Intelligent 
 Design, TM should come under equally rigorous investigation.
 People with certain religious beliefs should also investigate the religious 
 roots of TM. Although advocates claim it is simply a “mental techniqueâ€? 
 and 
 not a religion or philosophy, historical facts clearly show TM is rooted in 
 Hinduism; the mantras people repeat during TM are the names of Hindu gods. 
 Moreover, the movement lost a 1979 suit after the New Jersey Supreme Court 
 ruled
 TM 
 was based on religious concepts and shouldn’t be taught in schools. TM has 
 been 
 presented in a secular package to appeal to Westerners.
 Millions of people like Lynch have found TM to be a satisfying and worthwhile 
 purchase, as demonstrated by their longtime commitments to the practice. 
 However, we hope listeners at Lynch’s recent speech take the initiative to 
 investigate the statements made by this salesman of pseudo-science and 
 evaluate 
 whether they belong in an academic setting like this University. We think they
 don’
 t.

 Lynch speaks on mind matters
 David Lynch visited campus to raise money and spread awareness about 
 meditation
 By Emily Smith
 News Reporter
 November 09, 2005
 David Lynch, the director of dark films that often leave audiences in a 
 disconcerted state, has found inner peace through transcendental meditation 
 for 32
 
 years.
 This is why he has started a foundation that raises money to provide college 
 students with scholarships that will help pay the costs of learning 
 transcendental meditation and why he came to speak to University students 
 Tuesday
 night 
 in Columbia Hall.
 The talk in Columbia 150 was not only sold out, but had a large audience 
 overflow in the EMU Ballroom, where people watched a live broadcast of the 
 talk. 
 People at Oregon State University and Western Oregon University also saw the 
 broadcast.
 The concept that two audio speakers, when close together, produce four times 
 the sound of one, is the same concept that when applied to groups of people 
 practicing transcendental meditation will usher in world peace, Lynch 
 believes.
 Lynch did not prepare a speech, but asked audience members to get things 
 rolling by asking questions.
 When asked if he would consider re-releasing some of his films with a director
 ’s commentary, the answer was “no.â€?
 “You work so hard to get a film a certain way. ... It should stand 
 alone,� 
 Lynch said.
 Other audience members asked for some clarification on the meanings and 
 messages of his films, but he did not give answers to the questions they 
 asked.
 One spectator brought up the cost of learning transcendental meditation — 
 classes cost about $2,500 — and asked Lynch why he wasn’t trying to do
 something 
 to lower the price. Lynch said that if someone wants it bad enough, they will 
 find the money to pay for it, and the high price is why he is raising money 
 for meditation scholarships.
 Lynch said it makes sense to start the spread of peaceful consciousness in 
 Washington, D.C., where 500 students are about to embark on transcendental 
 meditation classes available through scholarships provided by the David Lynch 
 Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace.
 Lynch was joined by quantum physicist and president of his new foundation Dr. 
 John Hagelin, who was recently featured in the film “What the Bleep Do We 
 Know?�
 Hagelin explained how the coherence of electrical activity in the brain 
 directly affects memory, emotional maturity, creativity and IQ levels and how 
 transcendental meditation helps to build patterns of that activity.
 “Everything good about the brain relies on electrical synchronicity,â€? he 
 said.
 He said that when a person’s brain doesn’t operate in this fashion, the 
 person is living in bondage, a bondage that has that person completely bound 
 to 
 the object or problem in front of them. Whether they like the object of their 
 attention or dislike it, that bondage controls the person’s entire reality 
 at 
 that moment.
 Neuroscientist Dr. Fred Travis, director of the Center for the Brain, 
 Conscioussness and Cognition at the Maharishi University of Management, in
 Fairfield, 
 Iowa, showed what happens to the brain during transcendental meditation by 
 measuring the brain waves of a student on the overhead as the student 
 meditated 
 in front of the audience.
 People watched as his brain waves went from being erratic and unsynchronized 
 to more even and synchronized in a matter of seconds.
 Travis said that the frontal executive system, the “CEO of the brain,â€? is 
 extremely important in decision making. He showed a scan of a violent 
 criminal’s
 
 brain and the frontal lobe was inactive. He said that when a person, like a 
 college student, is under constant stress, they aren’t using their frontal 
 executive systems. He said transcendental meditation strengthens this part of 
 the 
 brain.
 Travis said the way a person uses his or her brain today affects the brain 
 they will have tomorrow. He left students with an image from the “Wizard of
 Oz,�
  in which the Scarecrow is being handed a piece of paper by the wizard after 
 enduring a perilous quest for a brain.
 He told students, “Don’t be content with just getting a piece of paper 
 from 
 college.�

 Earth's Future Peacemakers Just Need a Little T.M.

 By LILY KOPPEL
 Published: November 14, 2005
 DAVID LYNCH, the filmmaker known for his distorted, labyrinthine worlds, 
 wants America's young people to clear their minds.
 The David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, 
 formed in July, is raising money to bring Transcendental Meditation to 
 students from first grade through college. Mr. Lynch's vision involves 
 raising $7 
 billion and creating universities dedicated to earth's future peacemakers.
 Diving within to the energy and bliss is how Mr. Lynch, who has been 
 meditating for 30 of his 59 years, puts it. He hopes diving within will be 
 standard in every student's curriculum.
 Pouring water on this root, these kids, he said. Enlightenment is the 
 fulfillment of the most exquisite machine on earth. Any human being can visit 
 it. 
 Anything that is a thing emerges from this thing.
 Mr. Lynch's explanations are certainly imaginative, a film of his mind: The 
 word transcending is the key to it, to the very deepest, most profound 
 eternal 
 level; It's not a joke. It's a thing that works. Mankind is not meant to 
 suffer; This is an ocean of bliss. It's like grabbing onto the biggest elec
 trical line filled with bliss.
 Mr. Lynch, who is working on a film Inland Empire, practices T.M. 20 
 minutes twice a day by sitting in a comfortable position, closing his eyes 
 and 
 repeating a mantra. He says it allows him to enjoy the doing of things more.
 If somebody is a filmmaker, they get rid of things like deep fear, anxiety, 
 frustration, he said of meditation's benefits. It's the real deal. The 
 whole 
 enchilada. You will fall deeper into the film.
 Notoriously reclusive, Mr. Lynch has come on stage to spread 
 Consciousness-Based Education with fall speaking tours to universities on the 
 East
 and West 
 coasts. I really think it will change the world, he said. It's all 
 imagination.
 The Lynch Foundation, with assets of about $410,000, has awarded so far 
 $25,000 each in seed money to seven schools, three public charter schools, 
 three 
 public schools and one private school for children with learning 
 disabilities, 
 all of which requested help. Only two of the charter schools agreed to 
 discuss 
 their meditation program publicly because the other five schools were 
 involved 
 in research studies related to T.M., the foundation said.
 We have not gotten so much yet, Mr. Lynch said. But there are indications 
 that we are going to do really well.
 Several of the seven schools received matching grants from other foundations 
 and philanthropists who partnered with the Lynch Foundation.
 He is going to revolutionize education in America, said Dr. George H. 
 Rutherford, principal of the Ideal Academy Public Charter School, an 
 elementary
 and 
 middle school in Washington.
 Dr. Rutherford said that many foundations call to donate computers, but what 
 he needs is Transcendental Meditation so that the students can concentrate 
 better to use the equipment. T.M. helps to reduce the stress that creates 
 problems, he said.
 A meditation component is written into Ideal's charter, which was approved by 
 the Board of Education and the Charter Association, both in Washington. 
 Researchers at the Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, 
 will 
 measure the effects.
 To train teachers and fifth- and sixth-grade students, Ideal received $75,000 
 - $25,000 from the Lynch Foundation and a larger partnering gift from Jeffrey 
 F. Abramson, a principal in a Washington real estate company and the Abramson 
 Family Foundation, a founder of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.
 After completing training, homeroom teachers will lead meditation, a new age 
 variation on the Pledge of Allegiance.
 Training is led by instructors from the Maharishi Vedic Education Development 
 Corporation, also in Fairfield, Iowa. The seven-step program costs $2,500 a 
 student.
 Last month, a Lynch Foundation's gift of $25,000 went to the Nataki Talibah 
 Schoolhouse of Detroit, a public charter school, which previously received 
 T.M. 
 financing from the DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund and the General Motors 
 Foundation.
 The Lynch gift of meditation was for Nataki seventh- and eighth-grade 
 students who worked as a nonmeditating control group in a 2002 study tracking 
 the 
 social-emotional competencies of the meditating students conducted by Rita 
 Benn, director of the Education Center of the Center for Complementary and 
 Alternative Medicine at the University of Michigan and a clinical 
 psychologist.
 The 
 study was inconclusive, but the students in the group wanted to experience 
 what 
 their peers had felt.

[FairfieldLife] 2 announcements

2005-11-07 Thread Ron F
Forward:  Hi Friends,

Two announcements which we thought worth seeing:
 

Special Course for Ladies Equivalent to Raja Training
Course Starting November 15

Ladies to be in charge of the ladies’ population
throughout the world

Governor and Sidha ladies are warmly invited to rise
to a supreme role of leadership in their chosen
geographical area through participation in this
beautiful administrator training course of Maharishi,
to begin November 15. 

The new administrators, functioning from their own
unified state of consciousness, will enlighten their
whole population of ladies and girls through the
Natural Law based programs of the Peace Palaces, to
bring perfection to education, health, and every area
of life. As they radiate a nourishing, parental role
for all ladies, these mothers of the world will
experience profound development of their own
self-referral consciousness, enabling them to
administer the trends of life everywhere fully in
light of the Constitution of the Universe, Total
Natural Law, the Light of God.

For further information, an application, and a video
by Maharishi describing the sublime benefits of this
course, please visit the Global Country of World Peace
web site: http://www.globalcountry.org
Click on either heading on that page: ”Raja Training
November 15th” or “New Raja Training Conference:
November 15th”

We hope that many ladies will be able to attend this
life-transforming course; it is a very rare and
precious opportunity to grow quickly in higher states
of consciousness while bringing enlightenment to
society.

Susie Dillbeck
President, Maharishi Spiritual University



from the International Course Office:

REGARDING PANCHAKARMA AND OTHER TREATMENTS AT THE
CLINIC IN NEW DELHI

From the side of the movement we do not recommend
anyone to go to the clinic in New Delhi for Pancha
Karma treatment etc. Delhi, with its high level of
pollution etc, is not the place to go and get well.
There have already been cases where individuals have
become sick after going there for treatment due
to the bad air.

International has very strongly expressed that no
Governors or Sidhas or Meditators from anywhere should
go to the clinic in Delhi for treatment. Not only do
people come back sick from there, but the clinic does
not always use herbs of the standard of purity that
MAPI sells around the world (they use herbs from
non-Movement companies). They are also not using all
of
Maharishi's Vedic Health Technologies that are
available in his clinics in Europe and America.

We should remind people about the vast array of
helpful Vedic programmes Maharishi has made available
everywhere to improve health and longevity -- long
Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental
Meditation-Sidhi programmes including Yogic Flying,
Vedic Sound treatment (including via the Internet),
Maharishi Vedic Vibration treatment, the Maharishi Spa
treatments, Amrit Kalash and other MA Products,
Maharishi Jyotish and Yagya,proper Vastu, etc. We can
also remind that Maharishi is working intensely to
develop the new curriculum of the Maharishi College of
Vedic Medicine and that this will be the basis for
training doctors in every country in the complete
knowledge of health available in the Maharishi Vedic
Approach to Health.

We hope that things are going well for you,

Jai Guru Dev,

[FairfieldLife] Fwd: Hey, Ron, Do me a favor

2005-10-31 Thread Ron F
Note: forwarded message attached.

  Hey Ron,
  Please post this message to all Lists.

---OriginalMessage--
  Deepavali - the Festival of Lights
  
  India is a land of festivals where you will see at least one major festival 
each
month. Deepavali (or Diwali) which literally means rows of lamps is one of the
four main festivals of India. Throughout the world all Hindus celebrate 
Deepavali or
Diwali with great pomp and enthusiasm.

  The celebration of Diwali lasts six days, beginning on the 12th day of the 
month
of Kartik (as per the North Indian lunar calendar). The day before Diwali, in 
order
to evoke the grace of God, women fast. It is not that God wants you to go 
hungry or
takes pleasure in your suffering - the principle is that you gain only by 
giving up.
That evening, devotees worship Gomata (the cow) and her calf and feed them 
special
food. Women pray for the welfare of the entire family. This holy day is called
Vasubaras. 

  The first official day of Diwali falls on the 13th of Kartik. People set about
cleaning houses and shops, and decorating doorsteps and courtyards with rangoli 
or
multi-coloured designs. They purchase gold ornaments, new vessels, clothes, and
other such items. Devotees arise early in the morning before sunrise and take 
oil
baths. If possible, they wear new clothes. In the evening, people worship coins
representing wealth. Houses and courtyards glow from the lights, and families
decorate with lanterns. This day of celebration is called Dhantrayodashi or
Dhanteras. 

  The second day is called Naraka Chaturdashi. People take an oil bath in the 
early
morning and then in the night they light lamps and burn firecrackers. People 
visit
their relatives and friends, exchanging love and sweets. 

  On the third day, people worship Lakshmi, the Goddess of wealth. People 
decorate
their houses with lit lamps and lanterns to welcome Lakshmi to their home and
hearts. On this day businessmen close old accounts and open new accounts. The 
earth
is lit up by lamps and the skies are coloured by the multi-hued lights of 
fireworks.


  In North India, the Govardhana Puja occurs on the fourth day of Diwali. 
Devotees
in the North build hillocks made of cow dung, symbolising Govardhana, and 
decorate
and worship them. North Indians observe this day as Annakoot, or the mountain of
food.

  The fifth day of the festival called Bhaiyya Dooj celebrates unique and fun
customs. Every man dines in his sister's house, and, in return, presents her 
with
gifts. North India calls it Yama Dwitiya. Thousands of brothers and sisters join
hands and have a sacred bath in the river Yamuna.

The Legends 
Dhanteras 
The scriptures mention the divinity called Dhanvantari emerging from the 
churning of
the ocean with a kalash (pot) filled with Amrit (ambrosia). Due to the fact that
Dhanvantari, who revealed the science of Ayurveda to the world, first 
manifested on
this day, all over India, doctors following the Ayurvedic system of medicine
organise joyful celebrations of the annual Dhanvantari festival. 

  Naraka Chaturdashi
  There is a legend about a king of Prag-Jyotishpur, named Narakasura. He was a
powerful king who misused power to harass his subjects. Sri Krishna destroyed 
this
oppressive asura king on this day. Unjustly imprisoned people celebrated their
freedom with friends and family. The citizens celebrated deliverance from
Narkasura's reign by lighting lamps.

  Sri Rama
  Deepavali falls on a no-moon day - in fact the darkest day of the year. The
illuminations and fireworks, joy and festivities, are to signify the victory of
divine forces over the powers of darkness. On Deepavali day, triumphant Sri 
Rama is
said to have returned to Ayodhya after defeating Ravana, the asura king of 
Lanka.

  Goddess Lakshmi Devi The Puranas say that it was on this day that Goddess 
Lakshmi,
who emerged from the churning of the ocean of milk, married Lord Vishnu, the
repository of all divine qualities. 

  Govardhana Puja
  In order to shelter the gopis and gopas and their cows from the torrential 
rains
sent by Indra, Krishna lifted a hill near Mathura called Govardhana with his 
finger
and sheltered all the people for a period of seven days under it. By then Indra 
saw
Krishna's greatness and asked him for forgiveness.

  Bhaiyya Dooj 
  The river Yamuna and Yama the God of Death were brother and sister. As they 
grew
up they went their different ways. On this day Yama supposedly visited his 
sister
Yamuna, who in her joy at seeing her brother after such a long interlude set up 
a
feast for him. Pleased, Yama granted her a boon. He declared that every man that
receives a tilak or vermilion mark on the forehead from his sister and presents 
her
with lovely gifts on this day would attain higher worlds. 

  The message of Deepavali The traditional name of India is Bharata and Indians 

[FairfieldLife] Fwd: [Transcendental_Meditation] Maharish's beautiful comment on Mahalakshmi

2005-10-30 Thread Ron F
Note: forwarded message attached.

This is Maharishi's beautiful comment on
Mahalakshmi...very timely for this auspicious
occasion...DIVALI day


... Maha Lakshmi... the first syllable is Maha. Maha,
great. And this great in the context of education is
the characteristic of consciousness. 

This Maha is the goal of anyone who is not yet Maha.
So, Maha goal is the meaning of the word Laksha...
Laksha means the goal (Maha means unbounded, infinite,
immortal, eternal, Brahm, Totality, whole). 

Maha is the goal of that which is not Maha. The goal
of Maha is to swing in his greatness. It should be a
living reality. 

That the unbounded does not remain only silent. But in
that silence, there should be lively all
possibilities. So, the Laksha, the goal, the goal of
Maha is to have many in its unified wholeness. 

And the goal of that what is not Maha, the goal of
small is to be big and the goal of big is to swing in
its own expressions. 

Infinity wants to flow from one end of infinity to the
other end of infinity and it s flowing, it divides
itself, it quantifies itself, it qualifies itself. 

So it is the qualification which makes one look to the
goal. Small wants to qualify itself into as big as
possible. The big wants to qualify itself as the
field of all possibilities from this end to that end. 

Maha is a goal and MI is a very, very significant word
which is made of two values, MA and I. When we look to
MA, naturally it is me, the first to the self, ME,
even in English me, but in the Vedic terminology MI we
understand as total value of all four Vedas. MA, what
MA is, it s the HUM, Hummm.

Agnim-m-m. Rig, Yajur, Sama, Atharva. Then Atharva is
a Hum. Hum of all the four Vedas... Agni, it s a
collapse of all the progression of all the Vedas into
a Hum. 

Hum means the total values of all sounds; all
sounds are inherent in Hum. And in that Hum which is
focused on a point, that reality of the point is then
transformed into dynamism, which is represented by I. 

So, Maha Lakshmi this is the total Veda, concentrated
into the Hum and made dynamism. Here is concentration
at a point, which then in its nature is all dynamism. 

So, in the word Maha Lakshmi we have that enormous,
unbounded, total, infinite, eternal immortality
expressed in all the Vedas and found located in a
point.

And then expanding a point in infinity, and dynamism
again into Maha. So, here is the total __expression of
the Veda, total __expression of pure knowledge. 

Along with its infinite organising power in one point
concentrating and expanding. This point value, this is
Maha Lakshmi...

So, the element of Maha Lakshmi is a composite of two
values of opposite directions. Focal point and
expanding in its nature, this is called Anyonyabhava. 

It has two kinds of directions, coming in, expanding
and going out... So, the Laksha, the goal of expanding
value is to concentrate. 

The goal of concentrated value is to expand. And here
is the seed of Maha. This is Maha Lakshmi, at the 
point, which is both, expansion and contraction,
infinite potential of the expansion element we could
see along with infinite expansion of contraction
element. 

That means no matter where the situation is, there is
all possibility, no matter at what level we are
considering or at any level of contraction or at any
level of expansion, here or here, at any level is Maha
Lakshmi. 

There is a field of all possibilities and the field of
all possibilities in each cell is a concentrated point
of silence within the quality of infinite dynamism.
Silence and dynamism, that means completely fulfilled
of wakefulness. 

Completely fulfilled because it is not devoid of
anything. Infinite silence concentrated, infinite
dynamism concentrated and therefore it is eternal
state of fulfilment.

It is a fulfilment of eternal value. Fulfilment of
immortal value because there is a field of all
possibilities and in this field of all possibilities
is the element of fulfilment, infinite bliss. 

Infinite bliss is a quality of fulfilment and
fulfilment the quality of lack of lack. Devoid of
nothingness. 

It is all fullness, completely fulfilled,
self-sufficient infinity, eternity, capable of flowing
in terms of waves, modified, qualified and still
remaining unqualified at all time.

Unqualified qualified fulfilment, that means it is
unmanifest total potential of all qualifications that
may be thought or desired. 

Maha Lakshmi is an element of all possibilities,
completely self-sufficient at any time,
and any place. It is the total potential of all
possibilities. 

In the __expression of prosperity, the __expression of
growing prosperity, it is not stagnant prosperity it s
growing prosperity, growing and growing and growing.
Growing up to what? 

Beyond the capability of growth it grows and grows and
grows. This is what is materialised in the

Man Fails to Fly, Sues Camelot Owner

Fourth in a Five-Part Series

By NANCY K. OWENS

Associate Editor


THE MAHARISHI

Editor’s Note: This is the fourth of a five-part series investigating the 
demise and
possible future of the Camelot Hotel. Once one of the most popular gathering 
places
in Tulsa’s history, and the host one time to President Richard Nixon, the 
building
has become an eyesore and health menace. 

On August 29, 2002, the Washington Post reported that The Global Country of 
World
Peace issued bonds which, according to information provided by Maharishi, the 
owner
of the Camelot in Tulsa, will pay 6 to 7 percent. He has enthusiastically 
encouraged
investors to “Create world peace – and make money!”

In addition to founding his own country and developing its own currency, the
Maharishi empire has been active and fairly successful in reaching out to our
nation’s schools. In a November 13, 2004 article, AP writer Patrick Condon 
writes
that officials from The Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment, a 300 
student,
private K-12 academy located in Fairfield, Iowa, have reported “all their 
children
are above average.” The secret, they claim, is Transcendental Meditation. 
Advocates
for TM are enthusiastic about spreading TM’s success to other schools and have
appeared at public schools in New York, California, Minnesota, Pennsylvania,
Kentucky and other places.

University of South Carolina sociologist Barry Markovsky, who researches social
networks, has referred to TM as a “stealth religion” and questioned the 
benefits of
exposing students to it. Maharishi adherents emphasize that the movement is not 
a
religion. They are quoted in a Kansas City Star September 27, 1999 article on 
this
subject: “It is a mental and spiritual exercise that allows the human mind to 
come
closer to its full potential.”

The TM programs advocate, Bob Roth, spokesman for the Consciousness-Based 
Education
Association is quoted in Condon’s article as saying, “You have 10 million kids 
on
antidepressants, one in five black kids with hypertension and America not 
leading
the world in test scores. Transcendental Meditation is not just a way to reduce
stress, it’s a way to prepare a student to learn and do well.” Despite questions
that have been raised about Maharishi schools’ accreditation status, school
officials have pointed out that their students have scored in the 99th 
percentile on
standardized tests for the last 10 years, 95% of their students go on to 
college and
that they graduate 10 times the national average of National Merit Scholars.

The TM program for students has already been adapted into the curriculum at 
public
schools in Detroit and Washington. George Rutherford, principal of the
Fletcher-Johnson Learning Center in Washington and TM practitioner himself
introduced TM into his school in 1994 and informed Condon that, thanks to TM,
“Johnson has become a safe haven.” Public charter school Nataki Taliba 
Schoolhouse
in Detroit teaches its students TM and the cost is covered by private grants and
corporate donations from companies such as Daimler-Chrysler and General Motors. 
The
private funding is helpful because it costs an average of $625 per student per 
year
to bring TM into the curriculum.

Despite the educational successes claimed by officials at Maharishi educational
institutions, concerns have been raised by some about issues of violence and 
drug
abuse. The IowaChannel.com reported on March 4, 2004 that Maharishi University 
of
Management (MUM) student Shuvender Sim, 24, of Lancaster PA, was charged with
first-degree murder and assault with intent to commit serious injury after the
stabbing death of fellow classmate Levi Butler, 19, of LaQuinta Calif. The 
attack
occurred in front of dozens of students in the campus dining hall. Sim was also
charged with a stabbing attack that occurred earlier in the day when he 
allegedly
stabbed a classmate in the cheek with a ballpoint pen during a class called 
Teaching
for Enlightenment. School officials intervened after this incident and said 
they had
“handled the problem” and reminded officials the MUM was a place of peace and
enlightenment. No one could determine what led to the assaults. Sim was 
arrested and
held on a $1 million dollar bond.

According to the report, Sim, a diagnosed schizophrenic, had been off his 
medication
for months when he stabbed the two students. According to a June 8, 2005 report 
in
the Des Moines Register, “Prosecutors, and defense attorneys for Sim say that he
should be found not guilty of first degree murder because he was insane at the 
time
of the incident.”

The confiscation of drug paraphernalia at MUM in April 2004 raised more eyebrows
among officials. Officers were called to the University when a campus security 
guard
found an “indoor marijuana growing operation” in a student’s

Does anyone have a copy of this press conference? The following was said but I
believe this is incomplete:

30 or 40 thousand teachers of TM I have trained, many of them have gone on 
their
own, and they may not call it Maharishi's TM, but they are teaching it in some
different name here and there... doesn't matter, as long as the man is getting
something useful to make his life better, we are satisfied.   Maharishi Mahesh

[FairfieldLife] Sri Ramana comment about seeing the enlightened

2005-10-10 Thread Ron F
This is a piece from David Godman's interview by Maalok:

   I should also make it clear that Sri Ramana himself readily admitted 
that
enlightenment didn't turn people into paragons of virtue.  Like most great 
Masters
before him, he said that it was impossible to judge whether someone was 
enlightened
by what he or she did or said.  Saintliness does not necessarily go hand in hand
with enlightenment, although most people like to think that it should.  Sri 
Ramana
was a rare conjunction of saintliness and enlightenment, but many other Masters 
and
enlightened beings were not.  They were not less enlightened because they didn't
conform to the social and ethical mores of their 
times, they simply had different destinies to fulfil. 

  In Talks with Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Ramana narrates the story of 
Kaduveli
Siddhar, an austere ascetic who attracted public ridicule by having an affair 
with a
temple dancer.  A local king offered a reward to anyone who could prove whether 
this
man really was a saint or not. At the time the challenge was issued, Kaduveli
Siddhar was subsisting on dry leaves that fell from trees.  When the dancer
eventually gave birth to Kaduveli Siddhar's baby, she thought that she had 
proved
her point and went to the king to collect her reward. 

  The king, who wanted some public confirmation of their intimate 
relationship,
arranged a dance performance.  When it was under way, the dancer stretched out 
her
foot towards Kaduveli Siddhar because one of her anklets had become loose.  
When he
retied it for her, the audience jeered at him.  Kaduveli Siddhar was unmoved.  
He
sang a Tamil verse, part of which said, 'If it is true that I sleep day and 
night
quite aware of the Self, may this stone burst into two and become the wide 
expanse'.


  Immediately, a nearby stone idol split apart with a resounding crack, 
much to
the astonishment of the audience.

 Sri Ramana's conclusion to this story was, 'He proved himself to be an
unswerving jnani.  One should not be deceived by the external appearance of a
jnani.' 

  I find it fascinating that Sri Ramana, a man of impeccable saintliness, 
could
say that behaviour such as this could not be taken to indicate that Kaduveli 
Siddhar
was unenlightened.

  The url for the page where you can find the above is:
http://www.davidgodman.org/interviews/al3.shtml

  I guess the above says everything about Ramana's position on this issue of
enlightened humans being involved in sexual (or any other) act.  I guess the 
Jnani
as such has no desires (because his or her mind is dead), but his body is 
completely
used by the power we might call 'god'.  So, in case of a Jnani, action takes 
place
without any desires.  In case of humans whose minds are not dead, desires 
arise.  If
we are aware enough and watch the desires, and any thought for that matter, we 
might
stop taking those actions which are detrimental to our own or some other 
person's
larger interests.

   Of course, sex is not a 'bad' thing, but it becomes detrimental when we 
cling
to it and 'want' more of it and often.  Even clinging to tasty food or any other
'thing' is detrimental (probably as detrimental as clinging to sex).  I guess 
in the
most worthy, 'enlightened' state, bliss is always there and there is no 
dependency
even in the least on any external object.  I guess only when one is in the
enlightened state, the most appropriate, 'right' action arises all the time.

Subject: Next part of the Non-dual vrs. Dual saga of Rasa  
Swami-G  gangak000 


Love and Blessings Sat*Chit*Anand Shanti-Shanti-Shanti OM


G: other planes fall away ..

(Editor: But the physical plane has not fallen away to you. That
is what I am trying to say. Why do you restrict your
communication, your conversations, only with those who have
bodies?)

G: really am i communicating with a body ? do you know what
has fallen away here and what has not ? do you know what
takes place in this consciousness ? the answer is no - no - and
again no .. the physical plane is neither real nor unreal it is
the substance of dreams . Consciousness is not limited to
bodies .. the fact that you distinguish it is and are stuck in
planes and divisions belays your words about having traversed
the dual realms .. re-read the following passage about
 physical and material are the illusions of separation .


* In other words, the same thing shallow people do.

G: that is your judgementalism . until This consciousness
has been entered don't be so quick to make such
shallow pronouncements. shallow is that which
fears facing their own pain 

(Editor: I have a strong suspicion that one who has the Divine
Stigmata knows what pain is!)

G: show the stigmata .. where is it ? those of the stigmata
have wounds that are apparent . so you know pain .. is it
being enjoyed ? it is driving your life . the pain of Rasa . it
has become a part of your identity  it drives this Woman is
*god* ideation ... this comes out of a pain that has not been
resolved .. Christ came to free mankind He did not come to
enslave them ..


G: in facing it one dives deep into the waters of no mans land
.. the bondages are cut .. then the Unknown and
Unknowable is entered ... Reality shifts - the world one was
engaging falls away and GOD appears as not something
separate but rather the ONLY Reality -- it IS -- the world
is only an echo .. a by-product of it's nature .. Shakti is the
infinite changing transient which can be played in endlessly ..
it can be either Liberating or can bring greater delusion  most
are in the delusion stage .

* Shallow people, people of the world and flesh, are
concerned only with the physical/material. They know
nothing of the other side of the veil, or spiritual matters.

G: really ? there are a lot of shallow people that use *spiritual*
matters as a way of escape . as a way to cover over and run
away from the very suffering that may hold a key to final liberation
.. yes it is very very enticing to chase after psychic things . to
attempt to go to other realms etc... but what candle does any of
this hold compared to Resting in that Divine Essence and
Absolute which is Peace and the True Pearl of Great Price . ?
Where is the restless need of chasing realms or others then ?

(Editor: What are we talking about here? Do visions of Reality,
Truth and God Face to Face as seen by saints and mystics
represent negative things to Swami? Was Bl. Mary of Piazza
less than perfect? St. Dominic, St. Anthony of Padua, St. Francis,
St. Gertrude the Great, St. Catherine of Sienna, and many more,
all great visionaries, were in a lower state? Books are filled with
their visions, locutions and communications beyond the
veilthis did not limit them...they were One with God...these
visions were what they shared with Humanity!)

G: right they were one *With* God ... still within a dual
experience .. hindu saints also have had numerous of
these visions of God ... in fact here is what was the experience
of Poonjaji .. since a young boy he would see and play with
Krishna . when he went to see Sri Ramana  Ramana was
not impressed .. his answer to this was since Krishna comes
and goes it is not the Unchanging Ever Present Reality . at
this Krishna faded away and Poonjaji entered into the Non-Dual
Reality that no longer contains the limitational forms
appearances .. he entered and then Lived the Reality that
God

Subject: Part B  gangak000 




* I think exactly like Jesus, not exactly the way you do. You say
this is a lower form of Realization! You cannot refute saying this,
you have put it in black and white. This is the threat I am fighting
- not against myself as a personality, but something bigger.
Please don't push me down to where I am not!

G: fight what you want . there has been no threat against you
. No you do not think like Christ for Christ would not make
false statments against anyone . no one can put you
anywhere .. it is only your own mind which is constricted ...



* You cannot explain away Jesus and Ramakrishna, while it
is much easier to dismiss other saints, lesser knowns, and the
living, like myself.

G: have not attempted to dismiss any saints .. if you wish to
call yourself a saint fine . go for it ...


* I am the easiest for you to dispose of. Now look at your
attitude toward my Divine Stigmata. God keep me from any sort
of ego or pride, as I speak of 'myself.' Even as I say those words,
Swami condemns me as being of a lower nature - as one is
never allowed to say, 'me' 'my,' 'I' or anything that differentiates or
separates.

G: as far as the stigmata - show it .. if it is within and not
for the world then Shut up about it . for you are using it as a
sense of pride.. if it is for the world then Show it ..


* But I am certain, Swami, that your bank account is under
YOUR name and not open to the public to draw from.

G: actually it is under the non-profits heading and no i don't
draw a salary from it . but what would a bank account have
to do with anything . again you are off on another side avenue
that has Nothing to do with anything ..


* I am sure that it is YOUR clothes that are hanging in your
closet, where others do not walk in and put on.

G: actually yes others do put them on . hahahahahaah

* And then there is YOUR apartment,

G: no --- am living at the ashram and Yes others do come
and go here .. it is open for anyone to walk in .

* YOUR car and the like. What do YOU say to that?

G: it is used to pick up guests at the airport and transporting
them wherever they need to go .

* There IS NO YOU? Shall we stop playing games here?

G: yes it would be nice if you would quit playing games ..
AGAIN RASA SEES A BODY -- SHE RELATES TO A FORM 
TAKING THE FORM TO BE THAT WHICH IS SEPARATE
this IS the mind of Duality ..

in this Consciousness there is always first and Foremost
the Stillness and Unborn Presence of Absolute - the stilled
point and from that Shakti or world comes into play dividing the
Light into lights  sounds  colors - experience . the
interaction takes place as motion --- sensation - when it ends
then again the stilled vastness is all encompassing . the
motion is Flow .. within this it is forever Not Two / Not Two

When you are tired of playing games then Stop - and Be
Still - Let it all fall away . SEE what remains .



* Will you stop condemning my spiritual state if I use
personal pronouns?

G: who has been attempting to condemn whom ?



* You have bounced me backward twice because of the
Divine Stigmata.
The first letter, you asked where is it now, what good has it done
to save the masses? (You don't believe in missionary work, so
why worry about the masses?) Today you ask me WHERE IS
IT? Stigmatists had PHYSICAL WOUNDS, and so, where are
mine?

G: yes  and you have not answered Either of those
questions .

Why is it here two questions are asked and you give no answer
. ? while you have asked and laid out charges and
questions and i have answered them all ..


* Once again, you so cruelly and awfully contradict yourself.
You say that God - who is not physical is That, and you are That.

G: yes there is the One Divine Essense of All Being 


* Then when I speak of a SPIRITUAL METAPHYSICAL
UNSEEN reality, you say it has to be physical! If you can't see it
with your eyes, it isn't

David Lynch wants everyone to ... relax

He says TM helped him.
By Amy S. Rosenberg
Inquirer Staff Writer


Here's a quiz. To get in a David Lynch frame of mind, a David Lynch kind of 
head, do
you:

A. Drive around a small town with strains of the Blue Velvet movie soundtrack
playing in the background, thinking dark, creepy thoughts about undulating 
folds and
the underbelly of small-town life?

B. Go to Bob's Big Boy every day for seven years for a burger, chocolate shake 
and
inspiration?

C. Twice daily, take 20 minutes out of your over-caffeinated, nicotine-infused
existence to sit down, repeat your mantra, and become so convinced of the value 
of
transcendental meditation that you travel the country to tell equally
over-caffeinated, possibly also nicotine-infused, but definitely stressed-out
college students things such as Bliss is our nature?

Bliss is our nature? This is now the message from the creator of Eraserhead, the
film starring that poufy-haired guy and the mutant baby.

Apparently, it's an all-of-the-above phase of life for mind-bending filmmaker 
Lynch,
who says his 32 years of meditating have rid him of the anger, anxiety and fear 
that
gripped him when he was a student at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts 
right
here in stress-inducing Philadelphia.

Lynch, 59, is now touring college campuses with a band of TM devotees 
(including a
physicist, a professor of nuclear medicine, and a volunteer student who 
meditates on
stage while hooked up to an EEG machine) to raise $7 billion (yes, billion) for 
a
new nonprofit. The David Lynch Foundation - dedicated to consciousness-based 
world
peace and education - seeks to make transcendental meditation available to
hopped-up college students, and to younger kids, too, who are suffering from 
lots of
high blood pressure, anxiety and other ailments.

I want God to dance with us in a flow of bliss, Lynch told the overflow crowd 
at
the University of Pennsylvania the other night, speaking in his surprisingly
Poindexter-y voice, with that unmistakable shock of big-head hair and dressed 
in the
same skinny black tie, white shirt, and black suit he has worn since his high 
school
yearbook picture. We're not made to suffer, he said.

An unlikely message, perhaps, from someone whose psyche has coughed up such
discomfiting works as Blue Velvet, The Elephant Man, and Twin Peaks (but also, 
as he
reminded the students, the rather blissful The Straight Story, a true tale 
about a
guy who drives his John Deere riding mower cross-country to mend his relations 
with
his dying brother).

Lynch does not see a disconnect between his meditation practices - a diving 
into
the ocean within to create a world of peace sort of thing - and his ability to
create dark, edgy art. He is finishing up a new film, Inland Empire, which he
describes as being about a woman in trouble, starring Lynch regular Laura 
Dern.

You don't have to suffer to show suffering, he said. You don't have to be 
angry
to show anger. Those negative emotions start lifting when you start meditating. 
You
should have an edge. But you should get rid of those things that keep you from
creating.

Three decades of TM have not, however, rid him of his fear of public speaking, 
he
says. And so, minutes before he was to appear on stage at Penn's Museum of
Archaeology and Anthropology on Thursday night, the idol of many a camera-waving
film student stood in an alleyway just off Spruce Street, leaned his head 
against
the brick wall, closed his eyes, and tried to calm himself.

It's like everything, relative, Lynch had explained backstage a few minutes
earlier. If it was 32 years ago, you'd have me in a stretcher.

Now, he said, jabbing a finger into the shoulder of a reporter (lightly, 
lightly,
not at all menacingly - but this is a guy who used a severed ear as a plot 
device,
so there is a slight recoil), he strives to reach that field of unity, where 
he
can tap into positive energy (jab), bliss (jab), intelligence (jab), universal 
love
(jab), creativity (jab), and more energy and sharpness (he stopped jabbing and
headed outside, presumably to dive into his ocean of calm).

No doubt, academic, financial and social pressures among college students are 
real
concerns. (Just ask the hundreds of students who arrived early but were still 
turned
away from Lynch's lecture after the 780-seat auditorium filled up. Inside, 
though,
the students in the artsy crowd often seemed to be the ones offering up an 
admiring
reassurance to the disarmingly awkward Lynch.)

In the book College of the Overwhelmed, Harvard mental-health services chief Dr.
Richard Kadison cites statistics that find nearly half of all students 
experience
depression during college, and one in 10 will consider suicide. Too often, 
Kadison
writes, students resort to such destructive behaviors as eating disorders, drug
abuse, cutting themselves and

The full potential of my leadership

Global Press Conference,  21.9.05

MAHARISHI:  Sometime back that I thought you appeal to
the government. 

You are a government and you make this law and
introduce this thing in education and this thing in
healthcare and this thing in agriculture and this 
thing in defense and you will be better off. But we
knew the whole trying was in the deaf ears.

I wasted my time of decades talking to the people that
they should please do it for their own sake and they
will be better off. Do it and do it.  

But now is the time I have realized the full potential
of my leadership. I realized the full potential of my
leadership. I don`t have to ask anyone to do this
and to do this. I am creating an atmosphere. I am
creating that quality of world consciousness now, that
nobody will be able to be out of this global
network of effectiveness.

This generation and all coming generations will be in
the warmth of that sunshine that no one  will have to
face any patches of darkness in his life.
We are establishing that almighty system of
administration that everyone even if he is destined to
suffer, he will simply plunge out of suffering not
knowing...

Global Press Conference, 21.9.05

MAHARISHI: Sometime back that I thought you appeal to
the government. 

You are a government and you make this law and
introduce this thing in education and this thing in
healthcare and this thing in agriculture and this 
thing in defense and you will be better off. But we
knew the whole trying was in the deaf ears.

I wasted my time of decades talking to the people that
they should please do it for their own sake and they
will be better off. Do it and do it. 

But now is the time I have realized the full potential
of my leadership. I realized the full potential of my
leadership. I don`t have to ask anyone to do this
and to do this. I am creating an atmosphere. I am
creating that quality of world consciousness now, that
nobody will be able to be out of this global
network of effectiveness.

This generation and all coming generations will be in
the warmth of that sunshine that no one will have to
face any patches of darkness in his life.
We are establishing that almighty system of
administration that everyone even if he is destined to
suffer, he will simply plunge out of suffering not
knowing...

David Lynch to speak at the Majestic Theatre

Director of Blue Velvet, Lost Highway and Mulholland Drive will lecture on
creativity and mediation
By Bryan O'Toole
Published: Thursday, September 29, 2005 


A severed human ear lying in a perfectly trimmed yard, encircled by ants. A 
severely
deformed man resting his head, knowing that he will die. A red room inhabited 
by a
midget who speaks backward. 
Such images could only be the product of a deranged and disturbed mind.
But, director David Lynch is at peace. The renowned filmmaker will speak about 
how
he achieved this state in a lecture called Consciousness, Creativity and the 
Brain
on Saturday at Emerson College's Cutler Majestic Theatre.
Over the past 25 years, Lynch has indelibly left his mark on Hollywood, creating
complex, surrealist visions in films like Blue Velvet, Wild at Heart and most
recently, Mulholland Drive.
At Emerson, he will speak about a technique called Transcendental Meditation,
which involves taking 20 minutes twice a day to meditate and clear the mind.
Lynch, who has practiced Transcendental Meditation for 32 years, said he had 
been
looking for a way to reduce stress, but did not know how.
Then, Lynch spoke to his sister and noticed a change in her voice when 
speaking
about Transcendental Meditation, he told The Beacon during a recent phone 
interview.
He tried it and has meditated daily ever since.
It was so euphoric, he said.
Although many people have described his films as unique, Lynch said that such 
a
strong word should be reserved for the experiences during meditation. He 
personally
finds himself adrift in an ocean of bliss while meditating, he said.
The outlook has not only helped him deal with the pressures of the film 
business,
but also daily life. When one meditates, he said, you don't see enemies, you 
see
friends.
Lynch's talk at Emerson will focus on how Transcendental Meditation has helped 
him
throughout his career, as well as the creative process in Hollywood. 
He will be joined by quantum physicist John Hagelin and neuroscientist John 
Travis,
who will provide scientific information about the effects of meditation on the
brain. 
The director's speech at Emerson is part of his East Coast tour, which is also
making stops at American University, Brown University, Yale University and New 
York
University. In November, Lynch will begin a West Coast leg, speaking at UCLA 
among
others.
Tickets for Saturday's lecture were distributed for free at the Majestic 
Theatre's
box office last Wednesday and all available seats were gone within two hours,
according to the theatre's assistant manager, Christina Harrington. 
We were really pleased with the response, she said.
Other local schools, including Boston University, Harvard University, MIT and
Northeastern University were all allotted tickets for distribution. Any tickets 
left
over, however, will be handed out at the Majestic Box Office at 11 a.m. 
tomorrow to
any area college student with a valid school ID.
Lynch's talk comes after the creation of the David Lynch Foundation for
Consciousness-based Education and World Peace this July.
The foundation aims to introduce Transcendental Meditation to classrooms around 
the
country and it recently gave out a $200,000 grant to make this happen in seven
schools in various locations. 
In the midst of his college tour and foundation work, Lynch has been working on 
his
latest film, Inland Empire. Lynch cryptically said it is about a woman in 
trouble.

The film, which features Wild at Heart's Laura Dern and Mulholland Drive's 
Justin
Theroux, is almost finished shooting. Lynch feels it is important, however, to
sideline the film temporarily for his lectures.
Peace on earth is at stake, he said. And that's worth taking time off.

[FairfieldLife] The Details of Vedic Cognition- Transcript

2005-10-01 Thread Ron F
The Details of Vedic Cognition

Dr Hagelin: ‘It is very clear and very practical, in terms of what to do to 
prevent
job-related stress, boredom-induced stress: eliminate boredom by diving into the
evolutionary flow of life, expanding towards infinity, and achieving the goal of
life. It is a beautiful answer, Maharishi.

‘The last question is a deep one about the details of Vedic cognition. Last 
week,
Maharishi spoke of the deep mechanics of cognition of the wholeness of the Veda 
by
the Rishis of ancient India. Maharishi said every Rishi sees the Veda, the
Constitution of the Universe, in one syllable “A”, which contains within it all 
the
details of the Veda. My question is: Do these details of the Veda include the
individual recommendations for diet, herbal remedies, sound therapies, and
purification procedures that are available in Ayurveda, or the precise 
mathematical
calculations for proper layout of a building that are found in Sthapatya Veda? 
Did
all these details of these different branches of the Veda also originate in the
original cognitions of the ancient Vedic Rishis—the cognitions of “A”? Or were 
they
developed subsequently by commentators at a later time?’ 

Maharishi: ‘No, when we say “later time”, time emerges from there [laughter]. 
Time
emerges from there.

‘About “A”: it is like when you see the moon. When you see the moon, you are 
seeing
the moon, seeing the moon. Then what happens is, when you are seeing the moon,
seeing the moon, seeing the moon, what is inside the moon begins to come into
vision—what is inside. Then what is inside that, comes out; what is inside that,
comes out; what is inside that, comes out. 

‘That is the situation about cognition of “A”. “A” is a total syllable. “A” is 
said
to be—“A” is—Sarva Vak. “Sarva Vak” means total speech. “A” is total speech. 
When
you see it, you get so absorbed in it.

‘In the seeing process, the process of seeing takes the seer to the sight. Now 
you
want to see, you see “A”. You are here, “A” is somewhere in front. You see. So 
the
seer jumps out of his own eyes; from the eyes, he reaches the sight, and then 
brings
the sight to the eyes. This is the process of seeing—the sight comes out and
occupies the seer. The sight becomes the seer.

‘When the sight becomes the seer, then the sight, which is “A”, is no more in 
the
vision. What is in the vision is “A”, which has become the seer, and what was 
inside
“A” remains a sight. Then, in turn, the same thing happens: something that was 
there
inside “A” jumps out of “A”, jumps out from within “A”, and again occupies the 
seer.

‘So all the time, the sight becomes the seer, and then the seer sees something
else—what was beneath it. This process of seeing, in itself, is so unfolding 
that it
unfolds whatever is inside, and keeps on unfolding, keeps on unfolding, keeps on
unfolding. 

‘Immediately, in the second evolvement of “A”, is a gap. There is a gap, 
because the
sight becomes the seer, and inside the sight, it becomes the new sight. The new
sight becomes the seer, —the new sight.

‘Then the whole “A”, seen like that, brings to sight complete emptiness, which 
is
the last reality of “A”. “A”, entering into it, entering into it, entering into 
it,
and then there is nothing to see: it is emptiness—“A”. It is that emptiness, the
total abstraction, which is within a point. Within a point is that total
abstraction, unmanifest, transcendental reality.

‘When seeing “A”, the process of seeing presents, ultimately, something that is
transcendental. That is emptiness, a big zero. What is this big zero? It is
emptiness of “A”. It is no more “A”; it is complete absence of “A”, the 
totality of
“A” in the unmanifest.

‘This is the cognition of the Veda—“Ak”. When the “A” ends, then there is the 
gap
there. And then, after the gap, comes out to be “Ka”. “Ka” is a Kan. “Kan” 
means the
point. So from the wholeness to nothingness. Nothingness is the gap. The gap 
after
“A” is nothingness.

‘From the total value of speech, “A” to the end of “A”, this is cognition of 
“A”.
“A” cognized means the Totality cognized. What was there when the Totality was
cognized? There was no Totality; there was the basis of Totality, the shadow of
Totality. The unmanifest—like the hollowness of the banyan seed—is there. The
hollowness is there. 

‘That hollowness is called the “Sandhi”. Sandhi is the gap. In the whole Vedic
Literature, in the whole flow of the Veda, there is a word and there is a gap; 
there
is a word and a gap, and a word and a gap, and a word and a gap. So when Rishi
Madhuchhandas saw Veda, he saw “A”, and he saw unmanifest “A”. Then he saw some
other words, and then he saw the unmanifest of that, and he saw some other 
words,
and he saw the unmanifest of that. 

‘This whole run of the Veda is the run of Totality into emptiness—wholeness,
emptiness, nothingness, gap. This first word and the gap, word and the 
gap—two—are
involved in presenting the definition of the Veda. 

‘ “Veda” means

Filmmaker Lynch pushes transcendental meditation 
 
[Becca Starr/The Daily Pennsylvanian]

Director David Lynch speaks to students and community members in Harrison 
Auditorium
last night about his films and Transcendental Meditation. 

By beth sussman
September 29, 2005

Award-winning film director David Lynch closed his eyes and moved his lips as a
member of the audience asked him a question.

In doing so, Lynch proved his belief in the power of transcendental meditation.

Lynch spoke at Penn's Harrison Auditorium to an audience consisting of both Penn
students and just as many -- if not more -- Philadelphia residents.

Lynch's popularity with the audience was obvious.

Aside from the roar of applause upon his entrance from the crowd -- which 
filled the
790-seat auditorium -- an overflow line of fans unable to get in wrapped around 
the
building. 

I'm not so surprised about the line up to get in, Philadelphia resident Ben
Faranda, 28, said. I'm surprised I got in, quite frankly.

Although Lynch entertained questions about his films, he focused mainly on
discussing his new organization, the David Lynch Foundation for 
Consciousness-Based
Education and World Peace, which aims to raise money to train students to 
practice
transcendental meditation.

While most questions were related to Lynch's extensive film career, every answer
seemed to relate back to meditation.

I believe everyone who lives in Philadelphia could use transcendental 
meditation,
said Lynch, who lived in Philadelphia for five years. I started shortly after I
left here. I had so much anxiety, fear and anger.

Transcendental meditation is the vehicle to take you to that eternal field of
being, Lynch continued. I came out to talk about this because I truly believe 
it
will bring peace on Earth.

The symposium also consisted of three scientists, John Hagelin, Andrew Newberg 
and
Fred Travis, who discussed the brain's response to meditation.

Hagelin presented meditation as a favorable alternative to prescribed drugs.

We need something better, something natural, Hagelin said. Medically, 
meditation
is useful, but educationally, it's vital.

Travis showed how meditation could be educationally beneficial with an
electroencephalogram demonstration. His subject, Shane Sismen, sat on the stage 
with
32 sensors attached to his head as he meditated. The audience witnessed his 
brain
activity gain rhythm and higher altitudes, both signs of a restful state.

The fatigue, high stress, bad food and alcohol of your college experience is 
bad
for your brain, said Travis, author of Is College Bad for Your Brain?

Through meditation, you can be restful and alert in class, rather than tired 
and
bored.

I felt David Lynch was [a] compelling speaker, College senior Andrea Scott 
said.
He put transcendental meditation in a nice package, whether you could 
understand
its scientific effects or not.

[FairfieldLife] Director David Lynch at Brown

Director David Lynch at Brown

01:00 AM EDT on Friday, September 30, 2005

BY MICHAEL JANUSONIS
Journal Arts Writer
Director David Lynch has startled, shocked and kept moviegoers guessing for more
than a quarter century in films ranging from Eraserhead to Blue Velvet to 
Mulholland
Drive, not to mention his quirky 1990s TV series Twin Peaks.
But now Lynch is on a cross-country mission to promote the merits of 
Transcendental
Meditation to college students. His tour will bring him to Brown University 
Sunday
in a question-and-answer session that will be open to students only.
Lynch interrupted filming Inland Empire, a movie he's shooting with Laura Dern 
and
Jeremy Irons, to travel to such far-flung places as the University of 
Pennsylvania,
American University in Washington, D.C., Yale, Emerson College in Boston and 
Brown
as part of a weeklong East Coast tour.
Over the phone, while riding in a car to Philadelphia, Lynch is enthusiastic 
about
TM, which he has been practicing every day for the past 32 years. There are a 
lot
of people waiting to hear some good news and learn about something they can do 
to
make life better.
Lynch is a follower of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the octogenarian Hindu monk who 
became
famous in the 1960s as The Beatles' guru. On July 21, Lynch started the David
Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education, which he hopes will raise 
enough
money to train any U.S. child who wants to learn how to practice TM.
It's not just sitting in a room trying to be calm and thinking about life, 
says
Lynch who meditates twice a day for about 20 minutes each.
It's more than prayer, which on the surface isn't so powerful, although on a 
deeper
level prayer is answered instantaneously, he added, explaining that meditation 
is
not a religion. In fact, it is practiced by members of all major faiths and even
non-believers, says Lynch, who affirms strongly that he believes in God while
describing himself as a lapsed Presbyterian. But, he points out, You've got 
to be
trained to meditate properly. The key is the word 'transcend.' You've got to go 
all
the way in.
He believes TM can be a key to permanent world peace . . . not just an end to
warfare, but to amplify inner peace to affect the entire world. It's a holistic
experience, a feeling of totality that opens you up to all avenues of life.
He'd like to raise $7 billion to foster his foundation's goal, from big donors 
and
small.
But for now, he's doing it one step at a time on college campuses, talking 
about how
TM has helped rid him of his anger, anxiety and negativity. Once you dive in, 
the
negativity starts to recede and inner happiness starts to grow.

Camelot Owner Hopes for ‘Peace Palace’

Third in a Multi-Part Series

By NANCY K. OWENS

Associate Editor


PITIFUL UPKEEP: What was the Camelot Hotel continues to rot at I-44 and Peroria
Avenue in Tulsa.

Editor’s Note: This is the third of a multi-part series investigating the 
demise and
possible future of the Camelot Hotel. Once one of the most popular gathering 
places
in Tulsa’s history, and the host one time to President Richard Nixon, the 
building
has become an eyesore and health menace.

The present owner of what was the Camelot Hotel is Maharishi Ayur-ved 
University, a
school for teaching transcendental meditation and the teaching of the founder 
of TM,
the Maharishi Mahesh Yoga.

The building or parts of the property may be turned into a “Peace Palace,” 
described
on www.MaharishiPeacePalace.org, as “a beautiful modular building that is 
covered in
white marble. The Peace Palace will include exhibition and lecture halls, 
offices,
residential rooms and a dining hall.” According to a TM practitioner who 
recently
relocated to Tulsa, “We will be building a Peace Palace on part of the land 
where
The Camelot is located.” 

Until the Peace Palace comes to fruition, a Maharishi Enlightenment Center will 
be
opened at 5800 S. Lewis Ave., according to a Maharishi Ayur-ved spokeperson. The
Center will teach TM, sell Maharishi Ayurveda herbal products (also available at
www.mapi.com) and have a Maharishi Spa for Ladies, whose sister facility can be 
seen
on www.theraj.com.

“Peace Palaces,” similar to the one planned for Tulsa, are an integral part of 
the
Maharishi’s global philosophy. 

According to the Peace Palace website, “Each Peace Palace will offer to 
everyone the
knowledge and practical programs for peace and enlightenment, for a healthy, 
happy,
more creative, more fulfilling and successful life through the Transcendental
Meditation program. Its benefits in the fields of education, health, social 
behavior
and world peace have been amply documented during the past half-century all 
over the
world.” 

The five to ten most prominent families of every city are invited to “join us in
becoming founders of the Peace Palace.” Peace Palace construction in the USA is
being undertaken by The Global Country of World Peace, a tax-exempt 501©(3)
organization.

The Global Country of World Peace is a “virtual” country (not physical) and was
established on October 7, 2000. It was created by Maharishi to “establish global
world peace by unifying all nations in happiness, prosperity, invincibility, and
perfect health, while supporting the rich diversity of our world family.” Its 
stated
mission is to establish Heaven on Earth by raising the quality of life of every
individual to complete fulfillment and affluence in enlightenment. It will 
establish
a Global Administration through Natural Law by enlivening the nourishing
evolutionary power of Natural Law in the life of every individual and in the
collective consciousness of the whole world.

The Capital of The Global Country of World Peace is Maharishi Vedic City, IA, 
known
simply as “Vedic City.”

Maharishi’s goal is to replace what he refers to as “damn democracy” with the 
peace
inspiring politics of The Global Country of World Peace, according to their
literature. 

His thoughts concerning this issue were published in a TM Bulletin. His 
opinions are
clear from some of his quotes: “Damn the democracy, which is based on the 
popular
will, vote. It is not based on knowledge, it is based on number.

“The man-made constitution, that system of self rule called democracy. They say 
the
Minister is in the cabinet, he has no time to meditate. What does he do in the
cabinet? He does opposition.” “If your religion tells you to be a devil, then I
would advise you to be a devil, but enjoy life, enjoy life. All those countries 
who
are earning their livelihood by selling arms, Natural Law will take care of all
that. Time is different now, they will not be able to save themselves from the 
fury
about the sin they are committing.”

The same TM Bulletin offers Maharishi’s solution to society’s problems, “So, 
this is
what we’ll do, it is the rise of unifying principles through education, this 
will
motivate the creation of leaders in each country, of an ideal character and 
quality,
not like the monsters or dragons of destruction who dominate in nations today.”

For those who aren’t familiar with Maharishi, www.tm.org offers a glimpse of his
global achievements during the last 40 years. To list a few: 

1957- founded the worldwide Spiritual Regeneration Movement.

1972- inaugurated his World Plan and created a new science, the Science of
Consciousness. 

1975- discovered the Constitution of the Universe. 

1978- created the World Peace Project, sending teams of Yogic Flyers to the most
troubled areas of the world, to calm the violence through TM. 

1984- sent the first group of 7,000 Yogic Flyers to Fairfield, Iowa. (According

The Ann Arbor News
Packed crowd hears David Lynch Filmmaker shares zeal
for transcendental meditation

Monday, September 26, 2005

News Arts Writer
http://www.mlive.com/entertainment/aanews/index.ssf?/base/features-0/1127745609242440.xmlcoll=2

If you arrived on time to see filmmaker David Lynch
talk about transcendental meditation last night at the
Power Center, you were already too late. The venue was
packed to capacity.

Harried Power Center employees with walkie-talkies
loudly stated, again and again, that there were no
available seats anywhere in the building, but dozens
of people nonetheless lingered at both ground floor
entrances, hoping a spot would miraculously open up. 

(Despite early reports that equipment had not been set
up to provide video feed of the talk, those who stayed
did eventually get to hear and see most of Lynch's
presentation by way of television monitors in the
lobby.)

The evening's program began with opening remarks from
Ed Sarath, a University of Michigan jazz professor and
the director and founder of U-M's Program in
Creativity and Consciousness Studies (which sponsored
Lynch's 
appearance, along with U-M Integrative Medicine, the
Center for Urban Innovation, and the Program in Film
and Video Studies).

Next, Teresa Adams, administrative assistant for PCCS,
provided an introduction for Lynch, listing his
achievements in film as well as his broad range of
artistic interests (sculpting, painting, photography, 
etc.). 

Adams then announced that Lynch would take questions
immediately, so audience members moved to line up
behind two microphones.

As they made their way, Lynch - dressed in a suit,
with his thick, gray hair neatly swept back - stepped
to the podium and explained that he had started out
his career as a painter; the idea of a moving painting
was what 
started him in the direction of animation and,
ultimately, film.

The first person at the microphone wanted to give
Lynch his resume. Lynch said, Are you a
transcendental meditator?'' to which the questioner
quipped, I will be, if you take a look at this.

''Throughout the evening, Lynch nearly always steered
his answers back to the topic of TM - a form of
meditation that aims to bring the body into a 
deep state of rest while the mind becomes calm yet
alert - but he also offered occasional nuggets of
humorous advice, such as: Always write your 
ideas down, because if you don't and you forget them,
you'll feel like committing suicide.''

One audience member asked about the role of music in
Lynch's films. Every element in a film is
important,'' said Lynch. The trick is to get each
element to blend with the whole.''

Another attendee wanted to know when the second season
of Twin Peaks'' would be released, but Lynch couldn't
provide an answer.

In response to a question about whether or not he
would take on science fiction again (Lynch directed
Dune''), Lynch said, A lot of films deal with
consciousness and different dimensions and all kinds
of stuff. But I 
like real things - not to fiddle around with fiction,
but to find the truth of a thing.''

Soon, Lynch introduced Dr. John Hagelin, a physicist
(featured in the documentary, What the Bleep Do We

had the capacity to cause positive worldwide
political, social, and intellectual shifts. We could
see a more fundamental unity of man - though it's not
happening very fast with this current
administration,'' Hagelin 
said, drawing applause.

Hagelin spoke about the many advantages of TM for
young people, particularly in regard to learning. To
follow up, Fred Travis, of the Maharishi University of
Management, made a presentation that included watching

the brain activity of an audience volunteer. (The
demonstration showed how the brain activity of an
active mind differed from that of a mind at rest.)
Lynch then returned to the podium to take a few final
questions.

One attendee expressed a religion-based skepticism of
TM. I was raised Christian,'' replied Lynch. I love
Jesus, and people from all religions practice
transcendental meditation. ... I believe all the great

religions are rivers running to one ocean. ... There's
no conflict.''

Lynch later expressed his own initial resistance to
the idea of meditation. I thought meditation was a
waste of time,'' said Lynch. I didn't know what 
in the heck they were doing. But then I saw the faces
of yogis sitting in a forest, meditating, and they
didn't look homeless. They knew something I 
didn't know. They had a dignity.''

The filmmaker also explained his reasons for recently
founding the David Lynch Foundation for
Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, 
which primarily supports young people who want to
pursue TM. Real peace is not just the absence of war
- real peace is the absence of negativity,'' he 
said. 

Even if it doesn't work, it ought to be tried.''

  The David Lynch Foundation for 

  Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace

  Film director David Lynch has recently established a new foundation, the 
David
Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, dedicated to
bringing the benefits of the stress-reducing, health-promoting Transcendental
Meditation program to students, teachers, and parents
(www.DavidLynchFoundation.com). 



  Mr. Lynch, who is currently directing a new film, Inland Empire, says the
Transcendental Meditation technique helps students of all ages, nationalities, 
and
religions learn better, handle stress better, and know themselves better. 



  The Transcendental Meditation technique has been learned by tens of 
thousand
of students in schools, colleges, and universities all over the country. There 
is
also extensive published research to document the technique's wide-ranging 
health
benefits for mind, body, and society. I am starting this Foundation to ensure 
that
every child in America who wants to meditate can learn, Mr. Lynch says.



  The David Lynch Foundation will fund in-school TM programs-and support
scientific research on the effects of the technique-for developing a student's 
brain
potential, improving academic performance, and helping students with learning
disabilities, high blood pressure, and other stress-related disorders, such as
anxiety, depression, drug abuse, etc. 



  Mr. Lynch has been practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique for 
32
years.

[FairfieldLife] MMY:Natural disater in New Orleans

2005-09-26 Thread Ron F
Extract from Maharishi's Global Press Conference Aug
31/2005



Question: What lesson should simple, common people
learn from such a terrible, natural disaster
(California, New Orleans)?



MAHARISHI: Everyone should learn - be he simple or
complicated - everyone should learn as you sow, so
shall you reap. It is the collective consciousness of
USA which is the action of a government. It is the
collective consciousness of USA which is the action of
a government. If being murderous to the world, being
fearful to the world, being crucial to the world: as
you sow, so shall you reap.



This is the word from the celebrated religion of
America, word from Bible of America. A word of
Christianity, the religion of the people of America.
The religion of the President of America. We don't
have to learn from anywhere outside. Their religious
teachers have been telling them every day or every
week in the churches. The religious priests have been
reminding the people as you sow, so shall you reap.



If you can be a tyrant to the world, Natural Law will
be the same to you! That's all. There is not much
argument, not much intelligence to think about it: as
you sow, so shall you reap.

Dear Governors, Sidhas, and Meditators:

After many years of service to the Florida community and those coming 
from many other areas of the country, the Maharishi Vedic School at Avon 
Park is ceasing operations. The facility has been sold and no further 
courses will be offered, as we are starting to make preparations to move 
out. We are also at the early stages of planning a new facility at a 
different location, built in proper Vastu, acccording to the principles 
of Sthapatya Veda.

We want to send a heartfelt Thank You to those of you who throughout 
the years have been attending the many courses and activities offered at 
the School, and those of you who have supported this Maharishi facility 
through hard work, dedication, and financial contributions. We remind 
those fortunate ones of the old saying As you sow, so shall you reap.

As you may imagine, the coming weeks will be very busy for us at Avon 
Park. There are two areas of activity uppermost in our minds: moving 
trucks and storage facilities. If any of you can offer any assitance in 
those areas, we will be very grateful.

We would like to ask those who have sponsored rooms, to make 
arrangements to retrieve the furniture in your rooms. Ideally this would 
have to be accomplished by September 30. Please let us know if you are 
coming, or if you would like us to dispose of the furniture. We 
anticipate that some items will be placed in refrigerated storage, some 
may be transferred to other movement facilities, and some will be 
donated to needy individuals or charitable institutions.

Again, thank you very much for your attendance and dedication to create 
coherence for yourselves and the State of Florida. Although we don't 
have objective measures, we are sure that this facility has made an 
important difference in the life of all the residents of the State. We 
will keep in touch, and expect to see many of you at our new facility, 
whenever that manifests.

Jai Guru Dev

[FairfieldLife] Misouri Enlightnment center article

2005-09-20 Thread Ron F
Columbia Missourian


Missourian NewsSeptember 19, 2005 
Planning for peace palace continues

The center would serve as a place for meditation and enlightenment.

By LORI BROOKHART 

Jim Morrow thinks the Capitol building in Jefferson City should be rebuilt. He 
came
to this conclusion after he recently toured the Capitol. Admiring its history 
and
architecture, he felt like something was wrong.

“It is affecting the lives of everyone in Missouri, and they shouldn’t use it. I
could feel it. It’s confusing and sending the wrong influence into your 
awareness,”
Morrow said.

Morrow believes the Capitol, and all other buildings, should be designed and
constructed according to Maharishi Vastu, an ancient architectural system that 
is
used by the Transcendental Meditation movement. 

The system’s principles, such as the idea that entrances should only face due 
east
or due north, would come into play if Morrow is successful in the mission that
brought him to Columbia: establishing a peace palace and Maharishi enlightenment
center. 

Morrow moved to Columbia from Fairfield, Iowa, in June to establish a center 
here.
He’s run newspaper ads seeking donors and said he is talking with potential
developers and shopping for land to build one of 100 peace palaces that Global
Country of World Peace hopes to build in the United States.

The estimated cost for land, a two-story building that totals 12,000 square 
feet,
and annex space for staff, is $1.5 million to $3 million, said Kent Boyum, an
adviser for Global Country of World Peace. The organization is a not-for-profit
organization associated with the Transcendental Meditation group. 

The peace palace would include classrooms and retail shops offering herbal
preparations, clothing and spa services.

Morrow has been a practitioner of Transcendental Meditation since 1969 and 
operated
a center for the group in Cheyenne, Wyo., in the mid-1970s. He will hold 
sessions at
3 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday at the Columbia Public Library to introduce his
organization.

“The movement, like me, has matured over the years. There’s a whole new range of
products and services. All programs are designed to bring enlightenment to the
individual and invincibility to the nation,” Morrow said.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Indian guru who introduced his meditation technique 
to
the West 50 years ago, teaches that it can improve mental and physical health as
well as professional and personal success. It uses the ancient teachings of 
Veda,
sacred Hindu texts. The Maharishi says there are 6 million practitioners 
worldwide.

Learning the technique costs $2,500, which pays for the course over a one- to
two-week period, and what Morrow calls “lifetime follow-up programs.” The price 
pays
for full-time certified teachers, advertising, office equipment and other 
expenses. 

“I guess you could say their way of bringing meditation is professional. (It’s) 
no
different than building a synagogue or church,” said Seido Ray Ronci of the 
Hokoku
An Zen Center, who has been teaching a form of Buddhist meditation in Columbia 
for
six years.

Ginny Morgan, a meditation teacher with Show Me Dharma Center, has been part of 
the
Columbia meditation community for 11 years. 

“Columbia is a very open community and curious community,” Morgan said. “(Their
success) is contingent on the center itself and the offerings and the real
embodiment of the people who come.”

To complement the peace palaces, enlightenment centers, small retail spaces 
offering
products and services, are also popping up across the country. For Columbia, the
focus has shifted from finding retail space for an enlightenment center to 
finding
land for the larger peace palace, Morrow said.

The Maharishi organization has 25 enlightenment centers around the country, and 
that
number will “jump dramatically in (the) next six weeks,” said Wally DeVasier,
co-director of the Fairfield peace palace and private pilot for developer Curtis
McDonald of Iowa-based McDonald Properties. McDonald is the real-estate 
developer
responsible for bringing in Bass Pro Shops at his CenterState Crossings 
development
at U.S. 63 and Vandiver Drive.

“He has his business that is consuming 150 percent of his time. He really has
nothing to do with this (project),” DeVasier said of McDonald, a practitioner of
Transcendental Meditation.

Located in southeast Iowa, Fairfield is home to the Maharishi University of
Management and is adjacent to Maharishi Vedic City, which was incorporated in 
2001.

There are three completed peace palaces in the U.S.: Lexington, Ky.; Bethesda, 
Md;
and Houston, where the most recent palace opened one month ago. Global Country 
of
World Peace also has plans to build peace palaces in Kansas City, St. Louis and 
Cape
Girardeau, where David Zimmer, of the Zimmer family-owned radio stations, is 
heading
the project as the Cape Girardeau director.

A portion of this report first aired Sunday during the “ABC 17 News at 10.”

Inside the dim classroom at Tutt Middle School, the silence is broken only by

Emily Welborn, 13 (from front); Macy Goodwin, 12; and Alexis Cook, 13, take 
part in
the exercise, part of a study of the technique by Medical College of Georgia
researchers. 
Kevin Martin/Staff
It is a scene that is being replicated in another Augusta school and could 
become a
familiar sight nationwide if Medical College of Georgia researchers can make 
their
case that meditation has multiple benefits for pupils.

In a study on pupils in Jim Murzynowski's science classes at Tutt, the breathing
meditation lowered the pupils' blood pressures and their after-school heart 
rates by
an average of five beats per minute, according to a study in Psychosomatic 
Medicine.


Based on that work, MCG's Georgia Prevention Institute was able to secure a $2
million grant to continue the technique at Butler High School, and to later 
compare
it to students getting health education and those doing meditation and getting 
life
skills training.

Most people have never been taught how to deal with stress, said MCG 
researcher
Vernon Barnes, who trains the teachers in the techniques. In school, for 
example,
we don't teach the kids how to deal with stress like we should. That's why we've
started these types of programs.

The Tutt study shows it works for everyone, said Frank Treiber, the director of 
the
institute and principal investigator on the grant.

They were not selected because they were anxious or stressed out or worried 
about
things, Dr. Treiber said. They were your typical run-of-the-mill kids. It 
does say
that everyone could benefit probably from some level of stress reduction, even 
if
they're not feeling it on a regular daily basis.

Some Augusta children are getting relaxation techniques from the beginning. 

Kimberly Tompkins, the owner of Sacred Space yoga studio, has been working with
about 200 pupils in Head Start preschool programs in Augusta, teaching them how 
to
breathe with their bellies and relax the mind and body through yoga.

I think that they get it and they understand more than even the adults do, she
said. Watch a baby breathing. You see the rising and falling of the belly. At 
some
point that's lost. So it's kind of bringing people back to your truest state.

At that age, they have a lot of emotions, so it's sometimes difficult for them 
to
manage, said Head Start teacher Sonya Weaver, who practices yoga. It teaches 
them
self-control and managing their own behavior.

Studies by the Georgia Prevention Institute have found lower disciplinary rates
among students who meditated, Dr. Treiber said, which could also make the 
practice
more attractive to schools. 

Though her data is still preliminary, teaching children with attention
deficit/hyperactivity disorder to practice transcendental meditation already is
showing results at the Chelsea School in Silver Springs, Md., researcher Sarita
Grosswold said. 

Those kinds of positive results could lead to more schools ta- king a look at 
the
technique, she said.

The breathing meditation method taught to Augusta science or health teachers 
could
become that model, Dr. Treiber said.

If they're successful, it can be incorporated into any of the health education
curriculums throughout the U.S., he said. The teachers are calling out for it,
wanting help with stress reduction.

It's one reason Mr. Murzynowski has continued the practice in his science 
classes
this year.

I started to do this in health to improve their overall well-being, to take 
care of
themselves emotionally and mentally, he said. They start better. They focus
better. They seem more alert.

Dylan Goetz, 13, was skeptical at first but said the sessions really do have an
impact.

It helps you not worry about stuff and get focused on what you're doing, he 
said.

Lauren Volson, 14, said she plans to continue meditation on her own.

Because it's helped me a lot, she said.

The Impact:

Medical College of Georgia researchers working with Augusta schools are hoping 
their
breathing meditation study could provide a model for classes nationwide.

[FairfieldLife] National webcast Sept 29 - does brain get damaged from work?

2005-09-13 Thread Ron F
News Center 


Does the workplace damage your brain? 
Mon 12 Sep 2005 09:37 am CST
IOWA (myDNA News) 
 

To learn more visit myDNA's Mental Health Center  Read More 
 
 

Everyone is aware of the damage job stress can do to the heart - consider the
elevated risks of hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and stroke.

But what can stress do to the brain - to vital executive functions, such as
planning, decision-making and problem-solving abilities, even moral reasoning?

On Friday, September 30, a panel of medical researchers and business leaders 
will
participate in the first annual national brain conference for business, 
entitled,
Is the Workplace Bad for Your Brain? 

The conference, which will be webcast nationally, will explore the impact of job
stress on the brain - and will present new research showing the effects of
Transcendental Meditation on executive brain functioning. 

Stressful experiences lead to dysfunctions of the prefrontal cortex

According to conference panelist Dr. Gary Kaplan, a Long Island neurologist and
clinical professor of neurology at New York University School of Medicine, the 
high
stress, long hours, bad diet, and substance abuse that permeate the workplace 
can
take a terrible toll on the brain.

Stressful experiences lead to dysfunctions of the prefrontal cortex - the 
so-called
'CEO' of the brain - which regulates critical areas governing judgment, 
planning,
decision making, moral reasoning, and sense of self. Over time, this can lead to
impulsive, short-sighted, even violent behavior; increased anxiety; depression;
alcohol and drug abuse; memory loss; and an increase of other stress-related
diseases, Dr. Kaplan said.

Reversing the debilitating effects of job stress

To counter the damage of stress, more and more business people are turning to
effective non-medicinal antidotes, such as Transcendental Meditation, which 
research
shows produces a state of restful alertness in the brain - the opposite of the
stressful 'fight-or-flight' response. 

The experience of restful alertness gained during TM reverses the debilitating
effects of stress on the prefrontal cortex. It integrates frontal lobe 
functioning
and the connections of frontal areas to the rest of the brain - the basis of 
sound
judgment and therefore good leadership, says neuroscientist Fred Travis, 
director
of the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi University of
Management, and one of the world's most published researchers in the field of
meditation and brain functioning.

Conference panelist Jeffrey Abramson, partner in the Tower Companies, a 
prominent
Washington, D.C.-based commercial development company, will speak during the
conference on his company's use of the new EEG Stress Test and Brain 
Integration
Score Card to assess the impact of job stress on the brain functioning of
meditating employees.

In addition, Dr. Travis will measure the brain wave coherence of a meditating
executive to demonstrate unique EEG changes experienced during TM practice.

Over $20 million in NIH-funded research

Research on the effects of Transcendental Meditation on brain functioning is 
coming
to the forefront after nearly two decades of research on cardiovascular 
disease. The
CVD research, which has been funded by over $20 million in grants from the 
National
Institutes of Health, has found the TM technique reduces high blood pressure, 
heart
disease, stroke, and the use of antihypertensive medication - as well as 
decreases

[FairfieldLife] From Jay Lathom Book, Maharihsi comments on his experieces

Newsgroups: alt.meditation.transcendental
Subject: AEGTC, Switzerland 1976
From: [EMAIL PROTECTED] (Williams)
AEGTC, Switzerland 1976
By Jay Latham

Never had I seen him respond so powerfully. It was as if the Hammer of 
God was slamming that table. He then exclaimed loudly, This is real 
wholeness!

Jay Latham:

Maharishi, these experiences I've had over the past six months have been 
glimpses of enlightenment for me. I had a tremendous awakening experience 
before I started TM, but due to the circumstances, I feel a little shy about 
telling it in the group. I then sent him a thought message that I would 
relate my experience and not the circumstances.

Maharishi paused for a moment to think about what I'd just said.

It'll be all right to tell it, he said finally, in a thoughtful sort of 
way.

Maharishi, you've said that for every state of consciousness there is a 
separate, corresponding state of reality. Waking state has its reality, 
dream state has its reality, and deep sleep is another reality.

Yes.

You've taught us that transcendental consciousness is a fourth state of 
consciousness?a fourth reality that is the underlying reality of all life.

Yes.

And you've taught that cosmic consciousness is a higher state of reality, 
because one never loses consciousness of the transcendent even during 
waking, dreaming and sleeping.

Yes.

You've also said that God consciousness and unity consciousness are even 
deeper states of reality; so we have all these states of consciousness and 
all these states of corresponding realities.

Maharishi said yes this time in a somewhat impatient way, as if to convey, 
Get to the point, where are you going with this?

I'd been feeling an almighty power rise up inside of me as I asked Maharishi 
each one of these questions, because I was consciously setting him up to 
refute all that he had just said. I knew he knew the truth, but I wanted him 
to come out with it in a way he had never done before. It was time for
us to stop playing around like little children at his feet, and elicit from 
him the real truth. A great rage suddenly ripped through my chest, burning 
the lie in my heart. I wanted Maharishi to kill it right then and there, for 
all time.

Maharishi, in the experience of wholeness I had before I started TM, what 
you've just said that basically reality is different in different states of 
consciousness, is a total lie! What I experienced one night five years ago, 
is that there is only one reality, has always been one reality, and will 
forever be one reality! EVERYTHING ELSE IS A COMPLETE AND TOTAL LIE!

YES! YES! YES! Maharishi loudly proclaimed. With each YES, his fist came 
down on the table, Bang, Bang, Bang! Never had I seen him respond so 
powerfully. It was as if the Hammer of God was slamming that table. He 
then exclaimed loudly, This is real wholeness! I don't want to hear 
anything but experiences of real wholeness! Continue with your experience.

What I discovered in my experience, Maharishi, was that the personality I 
know as Jay Latharn is a complete, fictitious lie. There is only one Being, 
God. Everything else, even the 'reality' of God consciousness, is an 
illusion. It's just like Shankara said.

Now this is the real experience of wholeness! Maharishi proclaimed 
excitedly.

What happened is that I had an experience in which I went through all of 
the states of consciousness. When I hit cosmic consciousness I closed my 
eyes to meditate and witnessed creation in the flow of soma out of the bindu 
point between my eyes. Everything shot out of that point, in stereo?whatever 
came out on the left came out on the right. I saw the mechanics of creation. 
It was the most amazing sight I ever saw. After that I started having 
celestial perception with my eyes open.

I then briefly explained the major points of my experiencethe jewels I'd 
seen in the ceiling and how things were constructed of light rays created 
from God's mind?how I walked and moved through a cosmic plasma that erased 
the force of gravity, etc. Maharishi was paying close attention to what I   

  
was saying, and having his attention on me like this was like having God 
Almighty bum the lie right out of my heart. The longer I held his attention, 
the more enlightened I got. Yes, lie had closely followed rny progress for 
the past six months and given me a lot of attention, but this moment was the 
greatest I'd ever had with him.

I continued relating to Maharishi the progressive stages of rny awakening; 
how I had felt the presence of God in everything and how everything I 
perceived became the artwork of the Creator (Maharishi's descriptive words 
for sensory experiences in the state of God consciousness). I told him of my 
insights into God revealing to man the blueprints for a more comfortable 
life on earth throughout the centuries, and how I went from God 
consciousness into Unity Consciousness and perceived God looking back at me 
in every object that

The Luck of the World

Global Press Conference,  24.8.05

MAHARISHI:   ...sometimes we begin to feel to be angry
on these people
(government). Then we compromise and say, those who
can not think properly
how can we be angry on them. Their brain is
functioning distorted. So how
can we be angry on them. They have been drugged in
their early stages. They
are not eating proper food. In the name of medicine
they are eating poison
for new diseases to come up. How you can expect them
to be sensible to
themselves or sensible to others...

So the conclusion in my mind is, do what we ourselves
can do. Do what we
can do and don`t think much of anything. Whatever
coherence we can create in
any country, that will be our contribution for
creating that coherence in
the national consciousness. Governments are not in the
position to hear...

We still have hope in a hopeless world. We are trying
to gather (big groups)
very soon. But the destiny of the people doesn`t allow
us to light the big
lamp so quickly so that immediately the deep darkness
simply disappears. It
is the fate of the people. Fate of the people. But
still I am hopeful. I am
continuing...

It is not necessary to be angry on them because, if a
man is rushing on to
the hell, you can`t stop him. He is running and
rushing to get into the
gates of hell. What you can do?  But inform him before
he starts in that
direction. Tell him you are divine inside, you are
cosmic inside, you are
universal inside. Your soul is a unified field. You
are bliss inside. You
are a flow of bliss. You are a flow of total Natural
Law. You are
invincible. You are powerful. You are integrated...

It is just a matter of the total atmosphere which has
a great influence on
the individual. And the total atmosphere we are aiming
at,  purifying the
total atmosphere. Harmony, positivity in the national
consciousness of every
country, in the world consciousness. Big groups, big
groups.

And we are finding our way to create big groups even
so it is not happening
so quickly. But we can attribute it to not lack of our
efforts but lack of
the luck of the world. We have to hide somewhere. So
we hide behind the
logic that it is the lack of luck of the world that it
is not going so fast.
There we take refuge. If it is not going fast we have
a logic, it is the
luck of the world.

But it is enjoyable, this way or that way. We are on
the right way.

[FairfieldLife] Hollywood Producer David Lynch t speak at Yale regarding TM, admission free

2005-09-07 Thread Ron F

Celebrated Film Director David Lynch at Yale on September 30
to Speak on Consciousness, Creativity, and the Brain
To Launch New Foundation to Help Students
Overcome Stress through Transcendental Meditation

Award-winning director David Lynch (Elephant Man, Blue Velvet, Twin 
Peaks, Mulholland Drive) will speak at Yale on Consciousness, 
Creativity and the Brain on Friday, September 30, at 7:30 p.m.

Lynch's talk will be held at the Battell Chapel (Elm and College 
streets). The talk is free and open to the public.

Lynch, who is in the midst of directing his new film, Inland Empire, 
will speak and answer questions on his films. He will also launch the 
David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World 
Peace-a nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing the benefits of 
stress-reducing Transcendental Meditation to students 
(www.davidlynchfoundation.org).

Lynch's foundation recently partnered with other foundations in an 
unprecedented $1.2 million research grant to study the effects of 
meditation on brain functioning, academic performance, learning 
disorders, anxiety, depression, and substance abuse among students in 
nine schools and colleges.

The celebrated yet reclusive film maker admits to his aversion to 
public speaking, but said he is coming to Yale to highlight the need 
for students to overcome the epidemic of stress that pervades 
colleges and schools. Students experience fear, anxiety, 
depression-their life is not what it should be. I know from my own 30 
years of experience that meditation can work. I am coming to Yale to 
tell students that my foundation is available to help them develop 
their consciousness, creativity, and brain through Transcendental 
Meditation, Lynch said.

Lynch will be joined at the talk by quantum physicist Dr. John 
Hagelin, who was recently featured in the hit documentary What the 
Bleep Do We Know? and neuroscientist Dr. Fred Travis, director of 
the Center for Brain, Consciousness and Cognition at Maharishi 
University of Management.

Lynch's talk is sponsored by the Yale Film Studies Program, Cinema at 
the Whitney, The Yale Film Society, and the University Chaplain's 
Office. For more information, please call 203-436-4668.

World Peace may come to Danbury 
'Meditators' seek spot to build prayer palace 
By Eugene Driscoll

THE NEWS-TIMES 


Artist‘s rendering of the Maharishi Peace Palace Terry and Bernie Nevas want to
build in the Danbury area. 
DANBURY — It is a movement that has influenced Hollywood types ranging from 
shock
jock Howard Stern to the guy who plays the dad on the wholesome television show 
7th
Heaven.

Its leaders have opened countless enlightenment centers, a university — heck,
they've even founded their own city. 

The movement is the Global Country of World Peace, headed by an Indian guru now 
in
his 90s, and it's coming to Danbury. Maybe.

For three months, Terry and Bernie Nevas hjave searched greater Danbury for a 
place
to build a Maharishi Peace Palace — a place where people can learn and practice
transcendental meditation, a technique made famous by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a 
guru
who once served as spiritual guide to The Beatles.

The Nevases, a married couple from Weston, are part of an international 
movement led
by the Maharishi to spread peace, transcendental meditation and ancient 
teachings
from India around the globe.

After the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, the Maharishi gave his followers a 
mission: to
build 2,400 Peace Palaces in the United States and 3,000 palaces worldwide.

The idea is to have powerful, positive, peaceful vibes flow out of the Peace 
Palaces
and into the surrounding communities, therefore making the world a more peaceful
place.

NEW FAIRFIELD
CT 06812 
NEWFAIRFIELDUMC.ORG What we're offering is all kinds of peace-creating
technologies. That means peace for the individual and peace for the environment.
Transcendental meditation is the primary technique that we teach, Terry Nevas 
said.


Practitioners repeat a mantra silently to reach a state of deep relaxation and 
pure
consciousness. Studies have shown this reduces blood pressure, lowers 
cholesterol,
and even strengthens the immune system.

Not everyone, however, is fond of the Maharishi. In fact, some say he's the
charismatic leader of a sprawling group that treats him like a god. 

The Maharishi controls a vast business and real estate empire worth $3 billion 
to $5
billion, according to various news reports, though some estimates place the 
empire's
worth as high as $9 billion. 

Rick Ross, a cult expert who runs the Rick Ross Institute in New Jersey and its
associated Web site, said the Peace Palace effort is nothing more than a way 
for the
Maharishi to make money on real estate.

Many of these proposed Peace Palaces never come to fruition. Much of 
Maharishi's
vast fortune is in real estate investments, Ross said.

Frequently what he does is buy and hold properties. Eventually he'll dump it 
and
make some money that way.

The two-story, 12,000-square-foot Peace Palace is envisioned as an enlightenment
center where people can practice transcendental meditation, relax in a 
Maharishi
spa, take classes in Maharishi consciousness-based education or purchase a 
book
on Raam Raj organic clothing. 

While Terry and Bernie Nevas are running ads in newspapers that claim the 
palace is
to be built in Danbury, they've yet to find suitable land.

Finding a spot for a Maharishi Peace Palace isn't easy.

The Maharishi gives specific requirements governing what type of land is 
suitable.
The land can't be too close to high-tension wires or graveyards. Also, the land
can't have large hills that block rays from the east side of the building for 
more
than 12 minutes after the sun comes up.

That last requirement is proving to be a real pain in the neck for the effort to
spread peace locally.

The Nevases hope to construct two buildings — one for women, the other for men. 
They
had their eyes on some land in New Milford, but too many hills blocked the 
horizon.

They've also looked in Ridgefield and Danbury.

The topography of Danbury is very difficult. There are hills all over the 
place,
Terry Nevas said.

The Maharishi, through myriad non-profit corporations such as the Global 
Country of
World Peace and the Maharishi Vedic Education Development Corp., owns land all 
over
the United States.

The Maharishi International University was founded in 1973 in Fairfield, Iowa. 
It
later changed its name to the Maharishi University of Management.

In 2001, Maharishi followers incorporated Maharishi Vedic City, five miles away 
from
the university. All buildings in the burgeoning town are built according to the
principles of Vedic architecture, which is akin to feng shui. The structures use
only nontoxic materials and solar energy.

Robert Phipps, executive vice president of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, 
said
the meditators have transformed the Fairfield area into a haven for artists,
artisans and entrepreneurs.

I would not say it is a cult, Phipps said. They have had a tremendous effect

Small city has a big vision for its future

The Colony: Master plan calls for a retail, entertainment mecca

12:00 AM CDT on Sunday, September 4, 2005

By KEVIN KRAUSE / The Dallas Morning News 
The Colony sits between Frisco's booming retail stores and Lewisville's highly
developed Interstate 35E corridor. 
As a result, the city of about 36,450 people on the southeastern shores of
Lewisville Lake has missed out on potential development. But city officials 
have big
plans, and they're carving out an identity of their own. 
Officials are taking advantage of continuing improvements to State Highway 121 
to
try to bring in large family-oriented entertainment and recreation venues that 
would
attract visitors from across the region. 
In other words, they want The Colony to be a destination city. 
We're trying to take hold of our destiny, Mayor John Dillard said. We want to
have our own image and develop our own identity.
He said the city has been criticized for not using zoning rules to plan for the
future. 
The 121 Corridor Master Plan is a vision for how the city wants land along the 
state
highway to be developed. It envisions a thriving, successful, 
destination-oriented
corridor, according to the plan, which a city consultant worked on. 
Council member Scott Ward said he sees it as a weekend draw.
I think it'll give developers some possibilities. It'll show them we're 
serious,
he said. 
About 67 percent of property facing Highway 121 in the city is undeveloped. But 
that
will change. The state is widening the highway and converting it to a toll road.
Construction is expected to be complete by late 2007 or early 2008. 
City officials plan to create an entertainment and recreational zoning district 
on
about 1,043 acres on the north and south sides of Highway 121.
The idea is to build on features such as the city's more than 20 parks and two 
golf
courses, its Five Star sports complex and the Hawaiian Falls Water Park. The 
city's
proximity to Lewisville Lake also plays a role, officials said. 
Although the focus is on entertainment and recreation, other desirable uses 
include
office, retail, hotels, restaurants, corporate headquarters, theaters and other
cultural developments, according to the master plan – something that will 
bring us
jobs and tax base, Mr. Dillard said. 
Two tracts the city identified as ideal for entertainment or recreation uses 
are the
300-acre Maharishi Global Development Fund land south of Highway 121 and east of
Plano Parkway and about 109 acres owned by Trammell Crow west of Main Street.
In coming months, city officials will consider zoning changes to implement the 
plan.
Another possibility listed in the master plan is to create a public improvement
district that would raise money for improvements with assessments. 
Mr. Dillard said the zoning changes would take time. Once the plan is in place, 
the
city will begin talking to the landowners, he said.
Donna Bateman, director of development services, said the corridor includes 
about 60
landowners. She said officials have spoken to a couple of individuals but have
received no development applications.
Development of the corridor has been slow, despite many attempts by the city to
attract recreation and entertainment venues.
It's been discussed as long as I can remember, Mr. Dillard said. 
The Maharishi fund bought its land in 2000 and announced plans to build the 
world's
tallest skyscraper in The Colony. When those plans fell through, the company 
wanted
to build a large mixed-use retail center instead.
At the time, the company was involved in a legal fight with the state over the 
value
of 21 acres the state needed to widen Highway 121 for the toll road. The fund 
ended
up receiving $14 million for the right of way in a settlement.
Shortly after, in early 2003, the company put the land up for sale for $108 
million.
The group planned to use proceeds from the sale to build the first 108 of 200
planned peace palaces in the U.S..
The land has sat vacant ever since. 
The fund is part of a global empire led by the Indian mystic Maharishi Mahesh 
Yogi,
who pioneered Transcendental Meditation in the 1960s. Since then, his companies 
have
amassed a real estate portfolio with holdings around the world.

Lori Cain | Statesman Journal Dan Dingle meditates at friend Dave Price's house.
Transcendental Meditation

What: Participants silently repeat an assigned syllabic sound (mantra) to rid
themselves of conscious thought and connect with the universal consciousness 
that
they believe links all humans.
Why: Proponents say it relieves stress, increases personal effectiveness, 
promotes
peace and provides other mental, physical and behavioral benefits.
Origins: An outgrowth of Hinduism, TM was founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi 
during
the late 1950s in India.
cost: Students pay $2,500 to learn the technique during a seven-step process.
Controversy: Critics say TM is expensive, no different from other forms of
meditation and is couched in deceptive science.

MEDITATION
Peace at a price
Transcendental Mediation is hailed by some as life changing, but others warn 
those
interested to give it some thought
BY PARKER HOWELL
Statesman Journal 
August 22, 2005
People in Salem who feel unfulfilled, stressed and ineffective have another way 
to
seek relief -- one that is said to help you and the world, but those with big
promises comes a hefty price tag.
Learning TM only requires seven classes and about eight hours, but it costs 
$2,500.
Local Transcendental Meditation teacher Dave Price touts TM as a technique that
benefits physical health and makes life easier.
Many TM teachers and students claim the technique has changed their lives, yet 
some
scientists, scholars and former TM practitioners criticize TM as a deceitful
money-making scam.
TM 101
Founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, famed guru for The Beatles during the 1960s, 
the
movement began as an outgrowth of Hinduism in India during the late 1950s.
More than 6 million people have learned TM worldwide, according to the
organization's Web site.
Called a mental technique by proponents, TM is billed by some as the single 
most
effective meditation technique available to gain mental and physical benefits 
and
to attain inner happiness and fulfillment.
Proponents say it's different from other forms of meditation because the
participant's mind is supposed to transcend physical boundaries to join a 
universal
creative force.
TM recently gained more attention because avant-garde filmmaker David Lynch 
wants to
raise about $7 billion to teach TM to any child in America who wants to learn 
it.
Beginning TM practitioners meditate for about 20 minutes twice daily while 
seated
with their eyes closed.
TM is not sleeping but a state of very quiet and very, very awake thinking, 
Price
said. It's an easy process, he said.
If you can think a thought, you can meditate, he said.
To rid themselves of conscious thought and connect with pure awareness, TM
meditators
repeat a mantra -- a syllabic sound assigned to them by a TM teacher based on 
their
age when they started learning the technique.
Price said reaching this level of pure awareness allows the meditator access to
greater creativity and increases his or her preparedness for mental or physical
activities.
As people progress in TM, they meditate for longer periods. Price meditates for
about eight hours a day and said he finds the process enjoyable.
Intended effects of TM
The body settles into a deep state of relaxation during TM mediation, lowering 
blood
pressure and providing other health benefits, according to TM literature.
After meditating, people experience tremendous alertness, Price said.
Dan Dingle of Salem said he learned TM in high school during the 1970s to 
improve
his grades. Dingle, who enjoys rock climbing, said TM helps calm his mind so he 
can
climb safely.
It really did work, he said. It's the main thing that keeps my mind together 
when
I'm climbing.
Dingle said TM also helps him in other ways.
It gives one practice in how to have peace of mind and not get all stressed 
out and
caught up in stressful events, he said.
Dingle, who lived in India and has studied other forms of meditation, said TM is
different because it simplifies meditation.
I can really say that one of the things that distinguishes Maharishi's 
teaching is
he's made it so simple, Dingle said. He's really distilled the essence of 
esoteric
Eastern techniques and made it commonly, readily available for people.
Patti Steurer, a TM teacher from Lake Oswego, learned TM in college after a 
student
said it was the secret to his academic success.
There was something more in me, and I didn't know how to unlock it, she said.
Spreading peace
Beyond the benefits advocates say TM provides, they also claim TM promotes 
peace by
tapping into the consciousness that all humans share and broadcasting a positive
influence.
During intense group TM sessions, people practice yogic flying, a 
controversial
technique in which TM practitioners sit cross-legged on foam pads and say they
levitate.

[FairfieldLife] Organic mung dahl

2005-08-22 Thread Ron F









Dear Friends,
Mung Dahl
Once again, it is time to reorder the fabulous organic split mung bean dahl. It comes in 25 lb bags and is 3.75 per pound plus shipping. I will take orders for 25 lb bags and some 15 lbs., 10 lbs and some 5 lbs. The smaller bags are very time consuming to break up and bag so the price for those is including buying the bags is $4.25 per lb. ( for 5 and 10).
Please email your order as soon as possible, if interested. We have to get at least 200 lbs and so we need to presell it.

Please include your street shipping address for UPS delivery, your phone number, and how you would like to pay for your order.

Cell Phone Radiation
Maharishi, through Dr. Bevan Morris on the Maharishi channel, has been warning about the radiation from cell phone use and its deleterious effect on the brain for some time. Maharishi even mentioned it directly at this years Guru Purnima celebration. If you must use a cell phone we suggest you use one with a speaker phone feature or, for private conversations, an air tube technology head set. (Wired earpieces can channel radiation directly to your head). To help alleviate this problem, we have researched and have available excellent air tube technology earpieces. If you would like to know more please see below and reply to this email.

[FairfieldLife] Deccan Herald- advice to Bush- Close south entrance

2005-08-21 Thread Ron F







Deccan Herald » News Update » Detailed Story 







Bush gets some unorthodox advice 



From L K Sharma DH News Service, WASHINGTON: 

The anti-war activists, Islamic believers, communists, and liberals should know that if the world is in a mess it is not the fault of Bush and Blair. It is because their offices face an inauspicious direction. 

 


A US-based quantum physicist has discovered the secret of world peace. All will be well if the south-facing entrances to the White House and 10 Downing Street are closed. He claims no credit for this discovery but attributes it to India’s unpatented traditional knowledge -- Vedic architecture. Dr John Hagelin, President of what he calls the US Peace Government, has told both Mr George Bush and Mr Tony Blair that they should close the south-facing entrances. 



This will be a stop-gap arrangement and later they must move to properly designed buildings. Improper design of government buildings promotes disorderly thinking and infighting, he says. Sceptics may say that the US has done quite well over the decades despite the White House entrance facing an inauspicious direction. But Dr Hagelin has perhaps the world’s welfare in mind. In fact, he wants all the leaders of wold to check their buildings. They should flee such buildings as if these have been hit by an earthquake, he says. Dr Hagelin says the south-facing entrances are having
 deleterious effects on their brain functioning and orderliness of thinking. If they shut these entrances, they will make wiser, more intelligent decisions for their people and the world. Dr Hagelin wants the Indian government to abandon the Parliament buildings in New Delhi because of their skewed entrances. Perhaps Dr Hagelin knows that the Indian Prime Ministers have been working in an office that does not face south, though it is called South Block. Dr Hagelin says “divisive and destructive government policies will become more coherent and harmonious overnight if government leaders live and work in buildings that are properly designed according to the principles of ancient Vedic architect are in harmony with natural law.” Bush and Blair may ignore this advice at their own peril at a time when they are not sailing smoothly. Dr Hagelin has urged government leaders to replace the old buildings with properly oriented, “fortune-creating” offices
 and residences that face the rising sun in the east. Such buildings will promote harmony and success for the government, and peace and prosperity for the nation. Dr Hagelin claims recent medical research shows a marked improvement in the efficiency of neuronal functioning when the head is oriented towards the east compared to the south. The positive effects of a proper eastern orientation on the brain and behaviour are being documented by science. He says Vedic architecture has been revived by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. About one billion dollars have been invested in the design and construction of Vedic homes and office buildings worldwide in the past decade. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi recently launched his Global Reconstruction Programme for Permanent World Peace, and is inviting builders in every country to immediately begin constructing in every city, Peace Colonies of homes and office buildings, as well as Peace Palaces to teach Transcendental Meditation.
 The advice to Mr Bush and Mr Blair is based on some research and not on mumbo-jumbo. Vedic architecture has already made a beginning and some users of the buildings have claimed a remarkable improvement in their well-being. The architects and builders, all followers of Maharshi Mahesh Yogi, present their work at professional organisations and are heard with great interest. They have been joined by some neuroscientists. According to architect Jonathan Lipman, Vedic architecture promotes well-being, health and success and makes the inhabitants feel more energetic and positive. Mr Lipman, chief architect of Maharshi Global Construction, told a gathering at the National Building museum recently that homes built on the principles of Vedic architecture become conduits of cosmic energy. Those who dwell in such houses are happy, healthy and at peace, he said while showing slides. A builder, Jeffrey Abramson, said his life changed when he moved to his
 new house designed as per the Vedic specifications. He and his wife practice Transcendental Meditation daily. “I felt my handcuffs had been taken off”. Mr Abramson is putting his money where his mouth is and building a 72-million dollar building project in Maryland, based on the Vedic principles. While this traditional wisdom has come from india, some in India tend to pooh-pooh things like Vedic mathematics. However, in America as the believers challenge the theory of evolution, there is a measure of acceptance of even "Christian physics".

EditorialA Moment of Grace http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/17/opinion/17wed4.html http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/17/opinion/17wed4.html Given the opportunity for retribution, a Long Island woman who was severely injured by a teenager gave and got something better.http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/17/opinion/17wed4.htmlAugust 17, 2005A Moment of GraceIn an age whose crabbed sense of justice finds _expression in dismal phrases like "zero tolerance" and "three strikes and you're out," the events in a Long Island courtroom on Monday came as an undeserved gift, something startling and luminous.It happened when Ryan Cushing, a 19-year-old charged with assault for tossing a turkey through a car windshield last fall, approached the driver he nearly killed, Victoria Ruvolo. Ms. Ruvolo, 44, suffered severe
 injuries and needed many hours of surgery to rebuild her shattered facial bones.When Mr. Cushing left the courtroom after pleading guilty, he came face to face with his victim for the first time. He said he was sorry and begged her to forgive him.She did. She cradled his head as he sobbed. She stroked his face and patted his back. "It's O.K.; it's O.K.," she said. "I just want you to make your life the best it can be."Mr. Cushing was one of six teenagers out for a night of joy riding and crime, which often happens when childish aggression and stupidity merge with the ability to drive and steal credit cards. The five others have pleaded guilty to various acts like forgery and larceny, but Mr. Cushing, who threw the turkey, could have faced 25 years in prison. At Ms. Ruvolo's insistence, prosecutors granted him a plea bargain instead: six months in jail and five years' probation.The prosecutor, Thomas Spota,
 had been ready to seek harsh punishment for a crime he rightly denounced as heedless and brutal. "This is not an act of mere stupidity," Mr. Spota said. "They're not 9- or 7-year-old children."That is true. But Ms. Ruvolo's resolute compassion, coming seemingly out of nowhere, disarmed Mr. Spota and led to a far more satisfying result. Many have assumed that Ms. Ruvolo's motivation is religious. But while we can estimate the size of her heart, we can't peer into it. Her impulse may have been entirely secular.Court testimony by crime victims is often pitched as a sort of retributive therapy, a way for angry, injured people to force criminals to confront their shame. But while some convicts grovel, others smirk. Many are impassive. It's hard to imagine that those hurt by crime reliably find healing in the courtroom. Given the opportunity for retribution, Ms. Ruvolo gave and got something better: the dissipation of anger
 and the restoration of hope, in a gesture as cleansing as the tears washing down her damaged face, and the face of the foolish, miserable boy whose life she single-handedly restored.

Tapping into TM 
Filmmaker David Lynch wants to share with schools the benefits he says he's 
reaped
from Transcendental Meditation. 



By PETER LARSEN 
The Orange County Register 


Filmmaker David Lynch makes movies that unfold like dreams, surreal and 
abstract,
often beautiful and disturbing at the same time.

The mysterious qualities of work from Eraserhead and Blue Velvet to Twin 
Peaks
and Mulholland Drive have at times left viewers wondering if Lynch has found 
some
way to tap into his subconscious and make art of what he finds there.

Which in a way, it turns out, he says he has.

For more than 30 years, Lynch has practiced Transcendental Meditation - TM, for
short. He credits it with enhancing his happiness, his health and - most 
importantly
for his art - his creativity.

Because he believes so much in what TM has done for him and others he knows, 
Lynch
has launched an organization - the ambitiously titled David Lynch Foundation for
Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace - to provide the program to 
schools
and any student who wants it.

The proof is in the pudding, Lynch says on a break from work on Inland 
Empire,
his new movie project. When you see students who have experienced
consciousness-based education, you kind of say, 'Oh, I can't believe what I'm
seeing!'

These people are self-sufficient. They've got a strength. They have a clarity.
They've got got an inner happiness.

They kind of glow with this consciousness.

Transcendental Meditation is the meditation program that has been led by 
Maharishi
Mahesh Yogi for the past 50 years. For 20 minutes twice a day, the person 
meditating
sits with eyes closed, seeking to settle the mind into a deeply quiet state 
referred
to in TM circles as restful alertness. 

Baby boomers may remember TM and the Maharishi for such famous followers as the
Beatles in the '60s, but other celebrities, from actors Clint Eastwood and Mary
Tyler Moore to shock jock Howard Stern, have done it, too.

Yet the movement has always had critics. Some argue that it has religious 
elements
related to Hinduism. A New Jersey court case from the 1970s ruled it was 
religious
in nature and could not be taught in schools.

A spokesman for the national TM organization said that since that case, 
society's
view of TM has changed. Public schools in Detroit, Atlanta and Washington D.C. 
have
used it, and it is now widely considered a mental and physical technique as 
secular
as yoga.

To Lynch, who believes students would benefit as he has, it's a simple equation.

People out there know the schools are in trouble, Lynch says. And here is 
(TM),
ready to boogie.

Bring it out and see what happens.

••• 

Jean Anne Currivan, a 19-year-old from Dove Canyon, has practiced Transcendental
Meditation for as long as she can remember, starting out informally as a 
5-year-old,
then learning the traditional program when she turned 10.

Throughout attending Santa Margarita Catholic High School she meditated twice 
daily,
and she's sure it's helped her studies and her life at large.

It's given me a lot of clarity, she says, sitting between her parents, Bruce 
and
Annamaria Currivan, both longtime TM practitioners.

I don't feel tired all the time. And it's allowed me to enjoy my studies for
studying them, rather than working to get a good grade.

As a freshman last year at the University of California, Berkeley, where she 
plans
to major in physics and philosophy, her roommate was always impressed how I 
didn't
stress out before tests, Currivan says.

The Currivan children - sons Joseph, 21, and Peter, 16, also meditate - are
poster-perfect for the point TM leaders hope the David Lynch Foundation will 
help
make: calm, clear-thinking and focused.

I can't imagine people not doing it, says Bruce Currivan, a technical 
director at
Broadcom, who also serves on the board of trustees at Maharishi University of
Management in Fairfield, Iowa.

I think it would be great if we had it in school, Annamaria Currivan says. It
gives me tremendous hope for the world.

It's very natural for (Jean Anne) to meditate and it would be wonderful if 
other
children would have that, too.

••• 

At the Nataki Talibah Schoolhouse in Detroit, about 120 students have practiced 
TM
twice daily for six years.

Carmen N'Nambi, founder and principal of the public charter school, says that 
since
the program started - funded in part by a grant from the Daimler/Chrysler 
Foundation
- the 120 students in it cherish the 10 minutes they meditate in the gym twice
daily.

I don't think we realize how much we don't value quiet in this culture, 
N'Nambi
says. American society is busy.

So the future generation needs to know how to rest, to say, 'That's enough 
now, I
need to go take care of myself for a little bit.' 

The program at the school is being studied by a University of Michigan Medical
School researcher, whose preliminary results found students who meditated there

TM news media coverage summary
by US Peace Government Media Team
http://www.globalgoodnews.com/world-peace-a.html?art=112352265718398159
Global Country of World Peace9 August 2005
On 9 August 2005 Global Country of World Peace reported: Positive, in-depth 
world
press coverage of Maharishi's Vedic Science and Technology has exploded as never
before in the 50 years of Maharishi's movement ever since he began holding 
Weekly
Global News Conferences more than three years ago. It is a joy for Global Good 
News
service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting
programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of 
world-peace. 
In fact, there is so much interest in all the programmes that when a single
individual boldly steps forward with the public announcement of the intention to
utilize one of Maharishi's Vedic programmes it can garner enormous press 
coverage
all over the world. 
A few weeks ago Washington developer Jeffrey Abramson announced plans to build 
the
world's largest office building according to Maharishi Vedic Architecture. Even
though Mr Abramson's building will not be completed for two years, the news of 
Mr
Abramson's plans to utilize Maharishi Vedic Architecture went around the world. 
An article on Mr Abramson's Tower II building appeared on the front page of the
Business section in Washington Post. A week later a second article was 
published on
the deep principles and practices of Vedic architecture on the front page of the
Home section of the Washington Post. 
This Washington Post article on Vedic architecture was reprinted in scores of
newspapers around the United States, large and small, including in the San 
Francisco
Chronicle and the Ft Wayne Journal Gazette. 
Now, this week, news of the establishment of a private foundation in the United
States to raise billions of dollars to support all of Maharishi's programmes of
Consciousness-Based Education and to create permanent world peace has gone 
around
the world many times over. 
Award-winning filmmaker David Lynch, who has practised Transcendental 
Meditation for
32 years, is a Yogic Flyer, and a member of the Board of Trustees of Maharishi
University of Management, announced on 21 July, Guru Purnima Day, the formation 
of a
new foundation, called the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based 
Education
and World Peace. Its purpose is to raise $7 billion initially, to fund and bring
Maharishi's Consciousness-Based, Vedic Education to children throughout 
America. 
The foundation will also establish and permanently endow seven large campuses of
Maharishi International University of World Peace, each with 8,000 Yogic Flying
students. There will be universities on all seven continents. Mr Lynch says he 
will
raise the money from peace-loving philanthropists within the entertainment 
industry
and throughout the business community. 
The announcement of this intention by David Lynch has created a huge wave of 
global
press coverage and received tremendous positive support by the global press. 
Here
are just a few examples: 
Newsweek featured a story entitled The Magic of Meditation in which Director 
David
Lynch discusses how to find inner peace and change the world 'to a good one'. 
This
is a completely positive, extensive, in-depth feature article about the profound
benefits of Maharishi's Consciousness-Based Education for enlightenment and 
world
peace. This article was read by more than 10 million people all over the world. 
Another article in the Chronicle of Higher Education (the premier education
newsmagazine read by all university and college presidents and other top
administrators) begins: Filmmaker Starts Foundation to Help Students Chill Out 
with
Transcendental Meditation. 
The article says: 'Filmmaker David Lynch will announce today the establishment 
of
the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace, an
organization that will promote the mental and physical benefits of 
Transcendental
Meditation. 
'Maharishi Mahesh Yogi introduced Transcendental Meditation for ''diving 
within'' a
half-century ago. Researchers have found that it can reduce high blood pressure 
and
improve brain function, among other health benefits. Meditating also improves
students' academic performance and fosters their creativity. 
'Lynch's foundation intends to bring Transcendental Meditation to students 
across
the country. Even more ambitious is the foundation's plan to raise $7-billion to
help establish seven affiliated Universities of World Peace that would train
students to become ''professional peacemakers''.' 
An article in the International Herald Tribune was titled: US filmmaker promotes
Transcendental Meditation for world peace— Film director David Lynch wants to 
raise
$7 billion to bring about world peace through a massive Transcendental 
Meditation
program. 'This is a way to bring real peace to earth. Real peace isn't just

World's tallest tower planned in India

http://www.gulf-daily-news.com/Story.asp?Article=117998Sn=BUSIIssueID=28130

World's tallest tower planned in India 



CHICAGO: A 224-storey pyramid shaped building, the tallest in the world, is 
being
built at Katangi, near Indian city of Jabalpur in Madhya Pradesh state. The
-foot (677m) Center of India Tower scheduled for November 6, is being 
financed
by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (The Beatles former spiritual leader), and will be his 
new
world headquarters. The firm designing this tower are known for a previous large
development, the Twin Towers in Battery Park City, New York.

Meanwhile, a twisting 115-storey glass and concrete tower that would be the 
United
States' tallest building may soon grace Chicago's lakefront, its developer said
yesterday.

Critics compared the proposed 2,000-foot (610 metre) Fordham Spire to a giant 
candle
fit for a cake, while others said it was out of place in a post-September 11 
world
in which landmark skyscrapers could be terrorist targets.

The tower, which would house condominiums and a hotel, is the brainchild of
Christopher Carley, chairman of Chicago-based Fordham. 

It was designed by award-winning Spanish-born architect Santiago Calatrava, who 
is
known for his curvaceous bridges, as well as for designing the winged addition 
to
Milwaukee's art museum and the transportation center to be built on the site of 
New
York's Ground Zero.

The slender tower will soar 1,458 feet (444 metres) to its roof and then add a 
spire
to reach 2,000 feet (610 metres), topping the 1,450-foot-tall (442 metre) Sears
Tower, currently the nation's tallest, and New York's proposed 1,776-foot-tall 
(541
metre) Freedom Tower.

At least two previous designs to build the world's tallest building in Chicago 
fell
flat for lack of financing since the Sears Tower lost the title of world's 
tallest
building in 1996 to Kuala Lumpur's twin Petronas Towers.

Current title-holder Taipei 101 in Taiwan is 1,670 feet (509 metres) tall but it
will soon be eclipsed by the Burj Dubai tower in the United Arab Emirates that 
may
reach 2,300 feet (700 metres).

Dear National Offices, dear National Leader, dear Peace Government
Leader,

Please find some points regarding the welcome of Sat Yuga on
Guru Purnima.

Wishing you the very best for this unique global celebration,

Jai Guru Dev
International Course Office

--
Dear All:

Maharishi this evening elaborated on the plan for group flying as the moon
rises on Guru Purnima 
Maharishi said:

We want to go high up in Yogic Flying as the moon rises and bring Sat Yuga
down. When coming down one can quietly say ?welcome to Sat Yugasum--just a
sense of it.

The feeling is so soft and pious.

He said it will be good if it can be outside on a celebration ground if at
all possible (ie if we have a place like that). We can bring a few
mattresses outside for that.

Or we can do it inside if that is not possible.

We rise high to welcome the dawning Sat Yuga. It is like coming out of the
house to welcome the guest and invite him in.

Maharishi also confirmed that everyone everywhere should do their regular
group program in the evening, and then do a separate program starting with
Transcendental Meditation 15 minutes before the moon rises (the moon rises
some time after 9pm in North America: 7pm in the Philippines). As the moon rises
then everyone lifts off and flies for 10-15 minutes as above and then rests for 
15
minutes!

So that will be fun.

Jai Guru Dev

Note: forwarded message attached.

PLEASE FORWARD TO YOUR GOVERNOR FRIENDS

Dear Recertified Governors, Governors planning to be recertified, and others 
wishing
to attend the Guru Purnima celebration in Meru, Holland,

Maharishi is preparing a truly great historic celebration for Guru Punima, July 
21,
and all Governors are warmly invited to attend the celebrations at the Global
Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in Meru, Holland. This invitation 
is
open to our whole family of Governors who have taken the Recertification 
Course, and
also to all those who have yet to take the course.

If possible, Governors should plan to arrive three days before Guru Purnima to
participate in the global conference of the Global Peace Government. This would 
mean
arriving on about July 17 to participate in the conference from July 18-26.

If you would like to attend, then to receive final acceptance please fill out 
the
Guru Purnima Celebration Approval Form online at http://www.VedicAmerica.net. 
You'll
find a link at the top of the page that will direct you to a secure environment 
for
entering data.

To attend the celebration, it is important to complete this form online and 
receive
a confirmation of approval -- even if you have already provided information by
another means.

Jai Guru Dev

Dr. Robert G. Wynne
Raja of Vedic America

P.S. -- Those electing to participate in the celebration at home have a very
important role to play. In addition to the celebration in Meru, Holland, a grand
celebration for all Sidhas and Meditators is to be organized in every center in
America to welcome the descent of Satya Yuga. The Yogic Flyers will all join
together in their evening program, rising high to welcome Satya Yuga after the 
moon
has risen, and while coming down saying Welcome Satya Yuga. They will rise to
welcome Satya Yuga and bring it down to Earth.

This will be a very great Guru Purnima where we will be offering to Guru Dev the
reconstruction of the world for a great bright future on a collective level for 
all
mankind.

If the Celebration Ground is already available in front of the Peace Palace, 
this is
where these celebrations should take place. Otherwise it should be arranged in 
the
Peace Palace or the local Maharishi Enlightenment Center.

In every way it should be a grand celebration. There will also be a live 
broadcast
of Maharishi's celebration in Meru for everyone to enjoy via the Maharishi 
Channel
satellite and Internet (broadcast details will be circulated).

In addition to the celebration in Meru, Holland, a grand celebration for all Sidhas and Meditators is to be organized in every center in America to welcome the descent of Satya Yuga. The Yogic Flyers will all join together in their evening program, rising high to welcome Satya Yuga after the moon has risen, and while coming down saying Welcome Satya Yuga. They will rise to welcome Satya Yuga and bring it down to Earth.

This will be a very great Guru Purnima where we will be

[FairfieldLife] July 13 article Austrailia- meditation extends life- stats listed

2005-07-13 Thread Ron F
 
Meditate on this, it can extend your life
Wednesday, July 13, 2005Healthe

New research published in the American Journal of Cardiology indicates that
meditation may not only reduce stress, but may also help adults with high blood
pressure to live longer. 

There are many non-drug techniques for reducing blood pressure, but 
none...extend
life, study author Dr. Robert H. Schneider, of the Maharishi University of
Management in Iowa. 

He added that the current study shows that you can live longer with a mind-body
intervention. 

Transcendental meditation is a technique for calming the body and mind, to allow
individuals to enter a state of restful alertness, in which the body is awake 
but
the mind is not engaged in conscious thought. It is a method of waking up the
body's own self-repair mechanisms, Schneider said. 

The new report is based on a review of data from two studies that showed that
transcendental meditation helped decrease blood pressure among white and
African-American adults, respectively. Schneider and his team evaluated the
association between the meditation technique and risk of death among the study
participants. 

The two studies included 202 men and women, about 72 years old on average, who 
had
pre-hypertension or mild hypertension. They were assigned to a transcendental
meditation group, or to various comparison groups of other relaxation 
techniques. 

Participants in the two studies were followed for about eight years on average 
-- a
maximum of nearly 19 years -- during which 101 individuals died. 

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=55247


Overall, men and women who practiced transcendental meditation not only had 
lower
blood pressures than those in the other groups, but were also 23 percent less 
likely
to die from any cause, Schneider and his team report. In particular, they were 
30
percent less likely to die from cardiovascular disease and 49 percent less 
likely to
die from cancer. 

The integrated holistic transcendental meditation technique does not have any
harmful side effects, Schneider said. 

Schneider is the director of the Institute for Natural Medicine and Prevention,
funded by the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Complementary 
and
Alternative Medicine.

Subject: Please Circulate: All Governors invited to Guru Purnima at 
MERU, Holland
Date: Tue, 12 Jul 2005 13:53:48 -0700

Domain of the Raja of Denver: Arizona, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, 
Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming


Jai Guru Dev

To all Directors (recertified Governors) and Governors:

Maharishi is preparing a truly great historic celebration for Guru 
Purnima, 21 July, and all Governors are warmly invited to attend the 
celebrations at the Global Capital of the Global Country of World 
Peace in MERY, Holland. This invitation is open to our whole family 
of Governors who have taken the Recertification Course, and also to 
all those who have yet to take the course.

If possible, Governors should plan to arrive three days before Guru 
Purnima to participate in the global conference of the Global Peace 
Government. This would mean arriving on about 17 July to participate 
in the conference from 18 July onwards.

Arrangements for accommodation are now being made and we will send 
you further details when they are available. In the meantime, inform 
us as soon as possible who will be attending and when they will 
arrive. If the Governors will be coming by plane, please inform us of 
the flight details and arrival airport and time, so that we can make 
arrangements for them to be met and taken to their destination. The 
most convenient airport is Düsseldorf, and a second choice would be 
Brussels. Governors from the Denver Domain should please contact 
Steve Hathaway at [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailto:[EMAIL PROTECTED] 
with your travel plans.

Maharishi also has asked us to arrange grand celebrations of Guru 
Purnima, including Yogic Flying, in all of our Centers around the 
country, inviting Satya Yuga, Heaven on Earth, into the World. If we 
will be in MERU for Guru Purnima, we should arrange for this 
celebration before we leave, and if we will be staying in our areas, 
we will participate together in these global celebrations.

[FairfieldLife] 6/22/ global press conference

2005-06-27 Thread Ron F
From: Jorg Schenk of Natural Law Forum

How does a man in Unity Consciousness experience time and space and is he
ever in a hurry?

Global Press Conference,  22.6.05

MAHARISHI:  Anyone who is in a hurry means he quickly wants to come out
of the muddle. He quickly wants to come out of pain and suffering and
trouble and disorder.

Anyone established in his total reality there is no hurry for him because he
is on the level of himself. He sees there is nothing more to go, nothing to
achieve. He is totality all in himself. He is bliss. So no more search. He
is on the plateau. Not on the peak that there is a danger of falling this
side or this side.
His peak is a plateau. He himself  is in his individuality. A complete
universality. Nothing to say, nothing to go. Nothing here or there.
Everything is always here and everything is always there. No more to go.
Very beautiful.

[FairfieldLife] Another letter sent to reporter about meditation increasing life span- feel free to use this

2005-06-25 Thread Ron F
Dear Sir/Madam:

With reference to your article about Meditation and increasing life span:

If a study were released to the Associated press proving that Johnson and
Johnson's brand baby food takes away a baby's rash, it would be if very
irresponsible if the press reported-all brands of baby food take the rash
away. It is the job of the press to leave the people clearly informed and
not confused so that the people dont go and buy just any old baby food
thinking the effect will be there. It is clear that the difference between
responsible and irresponsible reporting can mean the difference between
helping or hurting people.

Your article about Transcendental Meditation as taught by Maharihsi Mahesh
Yogi ignores the fact that the study was only pertaining to this brand of
meditation and none other. Actually, TM is the first and only form of
meditation in the world today with this scientific result showing
extension of life. Maybe there will be more studies in the future about
other meditation techniques but it should be very clear that at present
there is not.

I hope you print another article and remove the confusion which this
article can create.

Thank You

[FairfieldLife] INdian press report, US to have largest vastu office building

US to have world's largest office building based on vastu
Wednesday June 22 2005 00:00 IST 

UNI

WASHINGTON: Real estate developer Jeffrey S Abramson plans to make the
world's largest office building that meets the vedic standards of
architecture promoted by the Indian guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
Abramson, disciple of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in partnership with Tower Cos.
of Bethesdais is to built a 'healthful' workplace with the help of vastu
shastra.
He says the new office building in Rockville Maryland will have a terrace
called a ‘Vastu’ and an interior open space called a ‘Brahmasthan’.
Abramson, like the Beatles decades ago practices the Maharishi's
transcendental meditation.
The 72 million dollar building incidentally will be the first in the
United States to be constructed on the basis of vedic architecture. It
would also comply with environmental standards set up by the US Green
Building Council.
The 200,000-square-foot structure is to be built with non-toxic materials
and rely on energy-efficient lighting and Air conditioning. The indoor Air
is to be recycled and filtered every 55 minutes, according to a Washington
Post ,/Ireport on Tuesday.
Abramson said he learned about the healing effects of vedic architecture
after moving into a home built on the vastu shastra principles of
universal harmony and order.
He said his goal with tower ii is not to preach but to offer tenants a
more spiritually fulfilling and healthful workspace.
Abramson said when employees spend 90 per cent of their time indoors it is
better to build an environment for the person to succeed and ''that's why
I am interested in vedic architecture,'' he added.
The construction work is expected to begin this winter on a site just
adjacent to the developer's tower building, which is already fully leased.
The building has some environment-friendly features but has no vedic
design.
''All measurements of tower ii, interior and exterior, are proportionally
designed to mirror the geometry, or architecture, of the universe,''
according to a brochure for the building.
It says the main entrance is to face East, a central component of vedic
architecture that allows a structure 'to capture the early morning sun for
the greatest benefits of health and the vitality of the occupants.'
A 'mathematically determined vastu,' or terrace, is to surround the
building. Inside, the centre of the building is to have the Brahmasthan, a
''silent core or nucleus,'' outlined with marble floor.
