His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi urged government leaders to utilize today the knowledge of the Unified Field to create satisfied, spontaneously law-abiding citizens—instead of punishing them for their wrongdoings. Otherwise, Maharishi warned, the governments will be put out of office tomorrow by the upsurge of total Natural Law, the light of God, in world consciousness.
At the same time, Maharishi advised students who are seeking a practical way to create world peace to begin immediately the practice of Transcendental Meditation, and experience bliss and satisfaction within the Unified Field—within their own self-referral field of consciousness. This is the only way, Maharishi said, to create coherent, harmonious world consciousness—the basis of permanent world peace.
Maharishi delivered these pointed messages during his 1 December global news conference.
Government is significant only if it can prevent problems
Maharishi said that a government is significant only if it is capable of creating fulfilled individuals and preventing problems. 'A government should educate a man to be fulfilled because an unfulfilled man will always violate Natural Law—he will always do wrong things, which damage himself, his society, his nation, and the world.' He added, 'If a government fails to properly educate a man to live in accord with Natural Law and instead punishes him when he does wrong, then that government is a fraud.'
'I am full of hope that governments will respond to our offer.'
Maharishi said that he established a new global administration—the Global Country of World Peace—to offer to governments the total knowledge of the Unified Field so that every government can be successful and fulfil its parental role: to prevent problems for the people. 'I am full of hope that governments will respond to our offer and utilize our programmes to enliven the Unified Field—the Constitution of the Universe—in national consciousness. Then the Unified Field will quietly govern the nation with the same effectiveness and efficiency as it governs the infinite diversity of the ever-expanding galactic universe, with perfect order,' Maharishi said.
Students can perpetuate peace from within themselves
In response to a press question about the role of students in creating peace, Maharishi urged students to 'plunge' into the practice of Transcendental Meditation. 'Spend an hour in the morning and afternoon in the experience of the field of peace—the Unified Field,' Maharishi said. 'You will be able to perpetuate peace from within yourself and gain mastery over Natural Law so that you are never a slave to situations or circumstances.' Otherwise, Maharishi warned the students, their governments will send them off to fight an enemy in another country. 'You will be paid to die in the name of patriotism,' Maharishi said.
Maharishi's global peace program is practical and proven—not mysticism
Maharishi emphasized that his global peace program is practical and proven—not mysticism—and that it cannot be accomplished through talking or lecturing. 'It will only be achieved by quietly diving within oneself—into the bliss of the Unified Field,' Maharishi said.
Maharishi then explained: 'It does not matter what words are used to express the ultimate reality—whether you call it the 'Unified Field' from the physical sciences, or 'the light of God' from the holy texts of every religion, or 'self-referral consciousness' from the science of consciousness. It does not matter what words are used because the content is the same.'
'It is time for governments to act—it is now or never.'
Maharishi concluded by saying that in order to be successful, government leaders must realize they need to know something that they do not yet know. 'Government leaders need to know the total knowledge of the Unified Field,' Maharishi said. 'Now, with the blessings of the tradition of Vedic masters, this knowledge is easily available in the self-referral consciousness of everyone. So government leaders, educators, and parents should ensure that all the people, including the children, gain this knowledge.'
Maharishi then issued an urgent call to action: 'We have been saying the same thing for the past 50 years—and now our time for speaking is running out. It is time for governments to act—it is now or never.'
