Maharishi’s Global Administration
In July 1996, on Full Moon Day (Guru Purnima),
Maharishi inaugurated a programme to establish a Global Administration
through Natural Law, and on 12th January 1997 he
inaugurated the ‘Year
of Global Administration’, establishing a Global Administration
with twelve Time-Zone Capitals around the world, in order to take
full advantage of the administration of Natural Law centred in
the life-giving sun, whose influence on the earth changes from
month to month, creating the different seasons, and constantly
maintaining the evolutionary nature of Natural Law for all life
This has provided a new philosophy of administration, offering
new principles and programmes to enrich national law in all countries
with the nourishing influence of Natural Law.
Maharishi’s Global Administration through Natural Law focuses
on all areas of administration, but has its primary focus on the
application of Natural Law in the fields of education and health—total
knowledge, ‘fruit of all knowledge’—enlightenment—and
perfect health for everyone. This will spontaneously make administration
free from problems because all problems have their basis in lack
of proper education and in ill health.
With the establishment of Maharishi’s Global Administration
through Natural Law, administration through national law in every
country will begin to experience a lessening of problems in administration,
and governments adopting the programmes of Administration through
Natural Law will begin to experience support of Natural Law—rise
of the dignity of their sovereignty, self-sufficiency, and invincibility.
The training of Global Administrators in Maharishi Universities
of Management and Maharishi Vedic Universities is under way to
raise governmental administration through national law on a par
with the perfect administration of the Government of Nature through
Natural Law, so that every nation rises above problems, and every
government gains the ability to fulfil its parental role for the
Transcendental Meditation is a simple, natural, effortless
procedure whereby the mind easily and naturally arrives at the source
of thought, the settled state of the mind—Transcendental Consciousness—Pure
Consciousness, self-referral consciousness, which is the source of all
creative processes. The experience of Transcendental Consciousness develops
the individual’s latent creative potential, while dissolving accumulated
stress and fatigue through the deep rest gained during the practice.
This experience enlivens within one’s awareness creativity, dynamism,
orderliness, and organizing power, which results in increasing effectiveness
and success in daily life.
EEG coherence increases during
the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique. This indicates
greater orderliness of brain functioning. EEG coherence has been
found to be correlated with higher levels of creativity, intelligence,
moral reasoning, neuromuscular efficiency, and with experience
of higher states of consciousness. Reference: Proceedings
of the San Diego Biomedical Symposium 15 (1976): 237–247; Psychosomatic
Medicine 46(3) (1984): 267–276; International Journal
of Neuroscience 14 (1981): 147–151.
Scientific research has found that in cities and towns all over the
world where as little as one per cent of the population practises the
Transcendental Meditation Technique, the trend of rising crime rate is
reversed, indicating increasing order and harmony.
Research scientists named this phenomenon of rising coherence in the
collective consciousness of the whole society the Maharishi Effect,
because this was the realization of Maharishi’s promise to society
made in the very early days of the Movement.
The Maharishi Effect establishes the principle that individual
consciousness affects collective consciousness. The success of Maharishi’s
Global Administration through Natural Law in bringing peace to the individual
has given rise to a global undertaking to effortlessly create an ideal
society—Heaven on Earth—in which life will be characterized
by ideal education, perfect health, dynamic progress, and peace and harmony
in the family of nations.
The appearance of spreading
areas of EEG coherence during the TM-Sidhi Programme is entirely
analogous to the neurophysiological principle of recruitment, whereby
more and more individual elements are brought into simultaneous
action to accomplish more and more difficult tasks—more and
more Laws of Nature are spontaneously recruited to fulfil the desire
without resistance. Practitioners of the TM-Sidhi Programme with
the most stabilized Transcendental Consciousness (the simplest
form of awareness) were found to have maximum coherence of brainwave
functioning as measured by EEG, indicating maximum mind-body coordination.
This subtlest level of consciousness is a field of all possibilities,
correlated with maximum creativity and experience of the ‘Siddhis’—procedures
for producing effects in the body and environment by mere intention
of the mind, which results in increased ability to fulfil desires. Reference: Scientific
Research on Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi
Programme—Collected Papers, Volume 1 (1977): 102.
The TM-Sidhi Programme is an advanced aspect of Transcendental Meditation.
It trains the individual to think and act from the level of Transcendental
Consciousness, greatly enhancing the coordination between mind and
body, and developing the ability to enliven Natural Law to support
all avenues of life to fulfil one’s desires.
Extended Maharishi Effect
In 1976, with the introduction of the more advanced TM-Sidhi Programme,
including Yogic Flying, a more powerful effect of coherence in collective
consciousness was expected.
The first major test of this prediction took place in 1978 during Maharishi’s
Global Ideal Society Campaign in 108 countries: crime rate was reduced
This global research demonstrated a new formula: the square root of one
per cent of a population practising Transcendental Meditation and the
TM-Sidhi Programme, morning and evening together in one place, is sufficient
to neutralize negative tendencies and promote positive trends throughout
the whole population.
Yogic Flying demonstrates perfect mind-body coordination and is correlated
with maximum coherence, indicating maximum orderliness and integration
of brain functioning. This coherence indicates action from Transcendental
Consciousness, the Unified Field of Natural Law, where infinite organizing
power is lively.
Even in the first stage of Yogic Flying, where the body lifts up in a
series of short hops, this practice gives the experience of bubbling
bliss for the individual, and generates coherence, positivity, and harmony
for the environment.
- As we have mentioned,
Unified Quantum Field Theories of modern theoretical Physics have
recently discovered the unified source of the diversified universe, the
Unified Field of all the Laws of Nature—the field of total Natural Law.
The Unified Field is the dynamical origin of the innumerable
Laws of Nature that govern the vast universe with perfect order.
- Any Law of Nature and any aspect of life can now be expressed
and experienced in terms of total Natural Law.
- During the practice of Yogic Flying, the conscious mind
directly stimulates this fundamental field, from where all the
Laws of Nature are commanded, and enlivens the force of gravity.
- That the body spontaneously rises into the air against the
force of gravity by a mere impulse of thought means that the
mind commands the force of gravity.
- This mastery over gravity, the most fundamental and powerful
of Nature’s forces, demonstrates how the individual mind
enlivens total Natural Law.
Global Maharishi Effect
Research has shown that groups of individuals practising Yogic Flying—all
enjoying very high brainwave coherence—create coherence in collective
consciousness, and generate a unifying and integrating effect in the
life of society. This results in a decrease of negative trends throughout
society—such as crime, accidents, and sickness—and an increase
in positive social, economic, and political trends. Scientific studies
on this phenomenon have demonstrated that a group of at least 7,000 Yogic
Flyers can produce this coherence-creating effect on a global scale,
reducing violent and negative trends worldwide.
The Global Maharishi Effect was created by the group practice
of 7,000 Yogic Flyers (7,000 being approximately the square root of one
per cent of the world’s population) during three large ‘World
Peace Assemblies’ which were held over a period of two to three
weeks in the USA, Holland, and India.
The secret of the Global Maharishi Effect is the phenomenon known to
Physics as the ‘Field Effect’, the effect of coherence and
positivity produced from the field of infinite correlation—the
self-referral field of least excitation of consciousness—the field
of Transcendental Consciousness, which is basic to creation and permeates
all life everywhere.
Every government must have a group of Yogic Flyers—‘A Group
for A Government’—in their capital city to bring success
to the government. With the establishment of ‘A Group for A Government’,
national consciousness will become aligned with the Government of Nature,
the evolutionary power of Natural Law, which administers everything in
creation with perfect order. With the support of Natural Law—positive
trends and harmony rising in national life—the problems of the
nation will disappear, as darkness disappears with the onset of light.
During the period 1979–1986,
the number of participants in Transcendental
Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme at Maharishi International
University in the U.S. frequently exceeded the required amount
to create the Maharishi Effect for the U.S. During those months,
the U.S. actions toward the Soviet Union became more positive,
as indicated by time series analysis of an independent data bank.
When the number of TM-Sidhi Programme participants was at its
highest level, the Soviet actions toward the U.S. also improved. Reference: Proceedings
of the American Statistical Association, Social Statistics Section (August
During Maharishi’s ‘World
Peace Project’ of October–December 1978, experts
in Maharishi’s TM-Sidhi Programme went to regional trouble
spots around the world to demonstrate the ability of group practice
of this programme to radiate a calming influence in the turbulent
areas of Lebanon, Kampuchea, Iran, Rhodesia (Zimbabwe), and Nicaragua.
During this time period, in comparison to a baseline period prior
to the project, an independent data bank showed reduced hostile
acts and increased cooperative events in those areas and among
nations involved in these conflicts. Reference: Scientific
Research on Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi
Programme—Collected Papers, Volume 4 (1989): 2532–2548.
Crime decreased significantly
during periods in which the number of group participants in
Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme exceeded the
square root of one per cent of the population of these three
capital regions—Metro Manila, Philippines (August 1984–January
1985); Washington, DC, USA (October 1981–October 1983),
Union Territory of Delhi, India (November 1980–March 1981). Reference: The
Journal of Mind and Behavior 8 (1987): 67–104; and
9 (1988): 457–486.
Two studies using time series
analysis found significant reductions in violence in the United
States and Canada during periods when the number of participants
in the group practice of Maharishi’s TM-Sidhi Programme
exceeded the square root of one per cent of the North American
population. Reference: Social Indicators
Research 22 (1990): 399–418; Dissertation Abstracts
International 50(5) (1989): 2203B.
This study shows that during
three experimental periods when 7,000 experts (the square root
of one per cent of the world’s population) practised
Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme, there were
significant global reductions in international conflicts and
terrorism. Reference: American Political
Science Association (1989).
World Peace Project of October to December 1978, in comparison
to a baseline period prior to the project, an independent data
bank showed reduced hostile acts and increased cooperative events
internationally. This worldwide effect was due to the fact that
the trouble-spot areas influenced by the visiting groups of TM-Sidhi
experts were the key areas of international conflict and interaction
at this time. Reference: Scientific Research

Papers, Volume 4 (1989): 2532–2548.
