On a recent Maharishi Global Family Chat, Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of Great Britain for the Global Country of World Peace, spoke about a young British captain who learnt Transcendental Meditation after returning from Afghanistan.
Raja Peter explained that this 27-year-old British captain, who had been in Afghanistan two years ago—'a very stressful environment for the troops'—had a severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), from which many military people have suffered, after being in Iraq and in Vietnam before that.
This captain learnt Transcendental Meditation and it completely cured him. The health authorities had nothing to offer him at all, Raja Peter said, but this helped him, and he has now decided that he has a mission to get the British military to use this for the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder.
'It was very fortunate,' said Raja Peter, 'that last summer after the election and the new Prime Minister was elected, one of the very first things he did without asking permission from anyone else, he withdrew British troops from all combat operations in Iraq, and that has continued to be the case to this day.
'So this is perhaps looking more to the British military as a peace-maintaining and peace-creating role, and this very bright, young captain who is totally enthusiastic, is focussing on setting up special presentations for military leaders and arranging presentations at the top military training colleges in Great Britain.'
He would like to found an Institute of Invincible Defence in the country, and he wants to study everything he can in this area himself. He has visited the Invincible Defence and the Global Financial Capital of New York web sites.
'He has watched Raja Hagelin's presentation on the Unified Field Technologies of Defence, and he's absolutely sold out to it,' said Raja Peter.
'So this is another lamp being lit in the area of defence. The National Directors of Defence for the Global Country of World Peace in England are delighted to have this extra engine added to their programme to create an invincible nation. They're already working with all the Yogic Flyers around the country, setting up more coherence-creating groups and encouraging everyone to practise Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying together in the local centres of Transcendental Meditation.
'But this has added another engine to their initiative to create national invincibility, by bringing this knowledge to the military, saving the military from the stress of what they're doing at the moment and giving them the technology of Heyam dukham anagatam, ''Avert the danger before it arises'', to destroy enmity before it arises.
'So we're looking forward to the rise of invincibility from this level for Great Britain,' Raja Peter said.
