How Does the Maharishi Effect Actually Work?

Maharishi Effect: The phenomena that creates a peaceful, harmonious, life-supporting influence in a given population when the square root of 1% of a population practice the TM and TM-Sidhi programs.

Science has long recognized that we only use a small portion of our brain’s potential. Generally, the brain produces brain wave activity that is considered disorderly or incoherent. However, EEG research has repeatedly demonstrated that when one practices the TM and the TM-Sidhi programs, the mind experiences a unique state of “restful alertness” and the different areas of the brain become coherent and orderly.

When the entire brain functions in a coordinated and coherent manner, more of our mental potential is experienced and stresses and tensions which block the efficient functioning of the mind are dissolved. This opens up the possibility of experiencing the full, untapped potential of the human brain.

Experiencing more of our brain potential leads to continuous growth and evolution in our daily life and experiences of happiness, peacefulness and fulfillment.

Influencing the World

Each individual is a unit of society and individual consciousness is a unit of the collective consciousness of society. When positivity and happiness is enlivened in individuals through the practice of the TM technique, and to an even greater degree, through the group practice of the advanced TM-Sidhi program, the results are experienced in the collective consciousness of the world.

In 1960, Maharishi predicted that measurable growth and improvements would be experienced by a whole population when one percent of its people practiced the TM technique. Ancient texts from India speaking on the power of meditation and consciousness also describe this natural phenomenon.

Studies conducted in the 1970’s verified this prediction. In 1976 it was further discovered that when the square root of one percent of a given population practiced the TM and TM-Sidhi programs, the quality of life for that population increased significantly.

How is This Possible? Ancient Understading of Human Consciousness and Quantum Physics Find a Common Ground

Quantum physics describes a source of all order and intelligence in nature, a unified field of natural law, to be essential, fundamental and transcendental to all creation. It is possible to tap this field in your own consciousness.

Quantum physicists and social scientists theorize that when individuals practice this specific meditation, expecially in groups, the increased brain wave coherence creates a wave effect that spreads out from the individual into the environment and society. Repeated studies on this effect strongly support that only a fraction of the entire population experiencing the Unified Field of Natural Law is needed to create peace in the world.

Enlivening collective consciousness in this way is more powerful because generating coherence is more powerful and harmonious than the existing incoherence and negative trends in society.

A Wholistic Approach

Extensive scientific research has since proven that the application of the TM and TM-Sidhi programs in areas experiencing warfare has a dramatic effect on reducing hostilities, deaths and injuries and has an extremely positive effect on improving cooperation and peaceful resolutions.

Since there are many complex, contributing factors to war – economic, political, historical, individual and ethnic – attention to just one element will not create peace. All elements must be simultaneously addressed in order to stabilize peace. It is necessary to address these elements through the collective consciousness of society. This makes it possible to deal with all these elements at one time because collective consciousness affects every aspect, phase and level of life in society.

Implementing the peace technology of the Maharishi Effect neutralizes stress and tensions on every level of life and results in peaceful relationships between individuals and countries, prosperity, vibrant health and invincibility for all countries of the world.
