What You Can Do to Support Peace

A Revolutionary Approach to Peace

The solution to peace lies in using proven technologies that employ laws of nature more fundamental and powerful than even nuclear warfare. They develop the full potential of the human brain to create a peaceful influence in the individual, in society and in the collective consciousness of the world.

These peace technologies are the Transcendental Meditation® and TM-Sidhi® programs which, when practiced in a group, mitigates influences of negativity, war and suffering while promoting peace, economic stability and growth, and a high quality of life.

The TM and TM-Sidhi Programs are ancient, time-tested nonsectarian meditation techniques which develop 100% of the human potential. These powerful meditation programs are the most thoroughly researched techniques for developing human potential in modern history.

Everyone has access to an infinite source of peace residing within them. The TM and TM-Sidhi programs enable anyone to tap that source and radiate measurable influences of peace and harmony into society and the government.

Nearly 50 carefully controlled studies over the last 28 years have repeatedly demonstrated their effectiveness, including reducing war deaths, injuries and hostile actions in Israel, Lebanon, Nicaragua, Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Cambodia, as well as reducing crime rates and hospital admissions in the U.S.

It takes a relatively small number of people, and only the projected cost of a single day of war in Iraq, to create permanent peace. We now have the potential to create a peaceful world, where problems are addressed through life-supporting approaches, rather than life-destroying ones.

How Do These Peace Technologies Actually Create Peace?

His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs, has identified the source of conflicts in society as stress in the collective consciousness. Collective consciousness is comprised of the combined influences from all members of society.

Just as one might experience discomfort, fear or anger when entering a room full of highly agitated people, our society experiences similar negative effects when there is significant stress in the collective consciousness of society. War, hostilities, poverty, and sufferings arise as a result of this collective stress.

If, instead, one enters a room filled with close family and friends who bring joy, one’s experience would be uplifting and pleasant. In the same way, when the TM and TM-Sidhi programs is performed in a group equal in size to the square root of 1% of a population, harmful stresses in the collective consciousness are dissolved. The result is peaceful resolution of problems, harmonious relationships between individuals and countries, and economic growth and stability for the world

This phenomena is known as the Maharishi Effect. Nearly 50 studies conducted during the last 28 years have documented immediate, measurable improvements to an entire given population when the Maharishi Effect was applied.

Why Hasn’t This Influence Been Sustained?

The groups during the studies practiced these peace technologies for just a limited period of time. When they applied these technologies, the collective consciousness was relieved of significant stresses. But when the groups disbanded for economic reasons, stresses once again accumulated in the collective consciousness and hostilities returned.


What You Can Do to Support Peace

What is needed now is a permanent group of 8000 people practicing the peace technologies of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs in the United States. 8000 is the square root of one percent of the world’s population and that number will create an influence of peace and harmony radiating from the U.S. to all peoples of all lands.

Fairfield, Iowa, and it’s neighboring sister city Maharishi Vedic City are the homes of approximately 1,500 individuals dedicated to using the TM and TM-Sidhi programs every day to create a peaceful and more secure world.

Over 20,000 people already trained in these technologies live in the U.S. and more people can be trained, as well. Resources are needed to gather together and sustain in one place a minimum of 8000 practitioners of this peace technology. There are 8000 practitioners who would be full time “peacemakers” if the funds were available. It’s time to support this specialized group devoted to creating peace immediately!

8000 NOW is a group of individuals from Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City who are working toward creating world peace by establishing a permanent group of 8000 people implementing these peace technologies on a daily basis. We need your help to make this a reality!

The Bush Administration and many members of Congress have been lobbied to support a group of 8000 practitioners in the U.S. as well as a large group of practitioners in India who are trained to perform other peace technologies, as well. (link to ) It costs less to support and sustain this peaceful solution permanently than it does for a single B-2 bomber. While there has been some receptivity from some members of Congress, the overall response has been “not now”.

Therefore, it is up to us, all the peace loving people in the world, to create and support a group of 8000 people practicing these peace technologies of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs in the U.S. to avert any present or future wars and acts of terrorism and to guarantee the well being and happiness of each and every person in our country and the world.
