His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi issued a stern challenge to governments to rise to invincibility through his technologies of the Unified Field—or else be 'hooted out' of office for incompetence. Maharishi also urged America to immediately halt its destructive policies, because such actions are guaranteed to bring destruction back to the nation. And Maharishi admonished the world press for failing in its duty to bring his message of permanent world peace to responsible leaders throughout the world.
Maharishi's pointed comments came during his September 15 global news conference, which was broadcast to the world press on all continents live via satellite, Internet webcast, and teleconference call from the Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in Meru, Holland. Maharishi will hold his next global news conferences on September 22 and 23.
The news conference was held following the third anniversary of the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C. In response to a series of press questions about the origins of the September 11 attacks, Maharishi said that America should look to its own past actions. 'America has been destructive to other countries, and therefore other countries are destructive to America,' Maharishi said. ''As you sow so shall you reap. This is the ultimate analysis. If you destroy someone today, someone else will destroy you tomorrow. If America wants to be in peace, America should radiate peace to others.'
Maharishi added that the citizens of destructive nations, such as America and Britain, are free to choose their own destiny, but warned: 'If they continue to support this kind of destructive leadership, fine—but they are digging their own graves. 'As you sow so shall you reap,'—you can't hide from this eternal truth.'
Governments must learn something that they don't already know
Maharishi proclaimed that governments now have the opportunity to rise to invincibility, but they have to learn something that they don't already know. 'Leaders don't have the knowledge to prevent problems and satisfy the people through their administration.'
The new knowledge needed to promote ideal administration, Maharishi said, is the knowledge of total Natural Law—the Unified Field—which administers the universe with perfect order. 'The technology of the Unified Field enlivens total Natural Law and creates coherence in individual and collective consciousness—the basis of invincibility for every nation,' Maharishi said.
Maharishi defined invincibility as a state of supreme intelligence, power, and capability that is above the reach of weakness and cannot be challenged or defeated by anyone. 'An invincible government will be stable and will never change,' said Maharishi, who added that such an approach stands in sharp contrast to democracy, which Maharishi called a poison to the nation. 'The integrity of the whole nation is torn apart by divisive party politics. It is a shame in the name of administration.'
Governments urged to take up Maharishi's offer of invincibility
Maharishi urged governments to quickly take up his offer and have a group of citizens trained in the technology of the Unified Field. 'Every nation has the resources to prevent enmity and rise to invincibility because every nation has custody of the Unified Field within the self-referral consciousness of its people. So when the technology is available, why not use it?' Maharishi said.
Sending people to die for the nation is cruel and inhuman
Maharishi said that the alternative to his peaceful approach—attempting to maintain order in society through force, destruction, and fear of punishment—is unacceptable. Maharishi also condemned as inhuman the military approach to peace. 'It's cruel for any government to give salaries to people and feed them today so that tomorrow they can be sent to die in an open massacre. It is inhuman, animal-like, and devoid of intelligence,' Maharishi said. Maharishi targeted faulty education as the cause of all government problems. 'Today's education is isolated and incomplete—it doesn't awaken the total functioning of the brain,' Maharishi said. 'The solution is Vedic education because it develops total brain functioning and higher states of consciousness so that every citizen will think and act from the level of the Unified Field—and enjoy the support of the total potential of Natural Law to fulfill his desires.'
Maharishi's strong words for the world press
Maharishi had particularly strong words for the world press who have failed to deliver his message to responsible leaders in their nations. 'The world press is not doing their duty—otherwise our message would have reached those for whom it was meant,' Maharishi said. 'The press should feel their responsibility and—for their own sake and the sake of their nation—bring this knowledge to their leaders to create a world without suffering and problems.'
'We have the torch, and we are prepared to show the light.'
Maharishi concluded with reassurances that his plan to create permanent world peace by establishing groups of 8,000 peace-creating experts will succeed—with or without the support of the press. 'With the grace of the Vedic tradition of masters, we have the torch of total knowledge, and we are prepared to show the light,' Maharishi said. 'We will raise every government to invincibility and create permanent world peace now and for all times to come.'
