His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the worldwide Transcendental Meditation Movement, which has been active in the world for over 50 years, has announced that he is lifting the ban on the teaching of Transcendental Meditation and all other activities of his organization in Great Britain.
Maharishi imposed the ban in May 2005 when the population of the country re-elected Tony Blair as Prime Minister and thereby perpetuated the destructive policy of Britain in the world, including its leading role in the war in Iraq.
At that time, he explained: 'You cannot afford to feed the scorpion, because a more healthy scorpion will have a stronger sting. Transcendental Meditation is a gift of nectar from me to those who want to create peace and harmony in the world.'
Maharishi predicted that the focus of his international organization on raising positivity and invincibility in countries such as The Netherlands, the USA, and India would help to raise coherence and positivity in world consciousness as a whole—a phenomenon already demonstrated in over 40 published scientific studies over the past 30 years. He explained that the negativity in British national consciousness could only be neutralized from outside through this rise in world consciousness.
Maharishi acknowledged that although there were many peace-loving people in Great Britain, the country as a whole had nonetheless re-elected such a leadership, and that is why he had to deal with the country in this way.
However, now there has been a dramatic shift.
Maharishi hears review of policies of new UK Government
The trigger for Maharishi to reopen his organization in Britain came when he heard a review by Raja Peter Warburton* of the policies of the new Prime Minister, Mr Gordon Brown, and his Government. These included the fact that one of the first measures introduced by Mr Brown was to initiate a change of Parliamentary procedures so that the Prime Minister could not unilaterally take the country to war.
Maharishi also heard excerpts from the speech of cabinet minister Douglas Alexander, the new Trade and Development Secretary, as presented in Washington recently. In that speech, Mr Alexander had said: 'In the 20th century a country's might was too often measured in what they could destroy. In the 21st century strength should be measured by what we can build together. And so we must form new alliances, based on common values, ones not just to protect us from the world, but ones that reach out to the world. ...We need to demonstrate by our deeds, words and our actions that we are internationalist, not isolationist, multilateralist, not unilateralist.'
Maharishi lifts all his reservations to make Britain invincible
On hearing this and other positive developments since the change of leadership in London, Maharishi proclaimed that he was completely releasing his restraining hold on the activities of his organization in Great Britain. Maharishi said that he was lifting all his reservations, to make the country invincible, and that the teaching of Transcendental Meditation could be offered again throughout the country. The 50 Centres of Transcendental Meditation, which had been closed down in May 2005, will now be reopened and their facilities improved.
Maharishi saw the words and actions of the new Government as an expression of the changed quality of national consciousness in Great Britain, which had quietly resulted from the activities of his organization to raise coherence in world consciousness in recent years. Maharishi feels that Britain is no longer shrouded by the politics of war. 'We feel that England has no barriers for positivity any more,' he said.
Raising Great Britain to the height of great invincibility
Maharishi said that his leaders in Great Britain will 'raise Great Britain to the height of great invincibility'—good health, social well-being, prosperity, freedom from crime, a state of all positivity where negative trends will not arise within the nation nor penetrate it from outside.
To consolidate the reopening of Maharishi's organization in Britain, the Chief Ministers of the Global Country of World Peace for England, Scotland, and Wales joined 108 other countries on Sunday, 29 July in inaugurating Towers of Invincibility, which incorporate Maharishi Schools of Invincibility.
*Dr Warburton is the Raja (Administrator) of the Global Country of World Peace for all the English-speaking countries of Europe and Africa.
