Immediately establish a group of at least 1,000 to 2,000 peace-creating experts (depending upon the size of the national population) trained in Maharishi’s Unified Field-Based Approach to Defense to secure domestic tranquility, stability, and harmony within the nation.
Quickly expand this group to 8,000 peace-creating experts—the number required to create a powerful influence of peace and harmony on a global scale. True invincibility cannot be achieved while parts of the world are in turmoil. Every nation today is vulnerable to attack by faraway countries through acts of terrorism, long-range missiles, or subterfuge. Every nation must therefore look beyond its borders and help secure a peaceful and harmonious family of nations.
Fortunately, according to published research, such global harmony can be achieved, to a significant degree, by even a single coherence-creating group of 8,000 experts. This number corresponds to the square root of one percent of the world’s population, and is enough, according to both theory and experiment, to produce dramatic global reductions in terrorism and conflict, and rising positive trends throughout the world.
The simplest way to establish a group of 8,000 trained experts in Maharishi’s Unified Field-Based Approach to Defense is within a large university or college. Every country has hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of students. With proper training, a group of 8,000 students can become a powerful peace-creating force, bringing security and invincibility to the nation.
It is only necessary to add to the curriculum a period, each morning and evening, for collective practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs. Extensive published research on the application of these programs in education confirms that, in addition to the powerful effect of peace and national coherence created by these programs, the students individually benefit profoundly, graduating as highly productive, enlightened leaders of society. Among the many documented benefits are significant longitudinal increases in intelligence (IQ); increased creativity; improved learning ability, memory, and academic performance; increased psychological stability, self-confidence, and emotional maturity; and improved moral reasoning.
To safeguard national security and invincibility on a stable basis, it is important to ensure the continuity of this coherence-creating group. The group should be protected against political turnover and changing policies caused by elections. Ideally, therefore, the peace-creating group should be permanently endowed, and placed in a secure location. In this location, a branch campus of an existing government university can be built, or a new university can be established—a University of Peace.
Such a protected environment, along with a regular, ideal daily routine, is most conducive to the highly specialized training the students will receive—training that develops a very refined quality of consciousness, with the ability to access and explore the unified field in the most silent, expanded state of awareness. By protecting this environment and educational training, a government will simultaneously protect the nation’s security and invincibility.
Alternatively or in addition to this student coherence-creating group, there may be many large corporations with over 8,000 employees. By training company employees in the programs of Maharishi’s Unified Field-Based Approach to Defense, any large corporation can create national security and invincibility. According to published research, such a business will also benefit greatly from increased employee productivity, improved employee health and reduced health costs, greater economic stability in the country as a whole, and increased corporate profits.
The cost of achieving national security and invincibility through Maharishi’s Unified Field-Based Approach to Defense is truly negligible—essentially the cost of training and sustaining a group of 8,000 peace-creating experts.
As seen above, students can easily be trained in these powerful, peace-promoting technologies and can practice these programs as part of their daily educational routine. Additionally, any large corporation can train 8,000 employees and enjoy a net cost savings as a result of increased productivity and lower health costs. Even the unemployed within a country, who are often already supported by some type of government funding, can be trained in this approach and can practice these technologies daily as a form of community service in exchange for their financial support.
In all these cases, we can confirm that for less than the cost of a single B-2 bomber, any nation—or any wealthy philanthropist—can permanently endow a national peace-creating group of 8,000 experts—and thus create and maintain national security and invincibility forever.
Promoting Governmental Longevity
Maharishi’s Unified Field-Based Approach to Defense is also the most effective way to perpetuate a government’s ruling authority—i.e., to keep the current government in power.
By achieving peace and national invincibility, by preventing crime and social violence, and by promoting prosperity and positive trends throughout society, any government can gain and maintain the support of its people. Such popular support alone will prevent the otherwise inevitable turnover in governments, election after election. This constant turnover in governments, which is highly disruptive to both the rulers and the ruled, is an inevitable consequence of the historic inability of governments to satisfy their people.
Now, through Maharishi’s Unified Field-Based Approach to Defense, every government can fulfill its highest aspirations for its people. Every government can achieve national invincibility and world peace—and simultaneously secure its own longevity and dignity as a stable sovereign government.
