His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi this week proclaimed anew his offer to governments to raise every individual to enlightenment and every nation to invincibility through the knowledge of total Natural Law. Maharishi then sought advice from the world press on how to more effectively implement his programs and thereby more quickly eliminate global problems and suffering.
'We want to create a permanent platform of peace and happiness in the world through proper education, health, administration, agriculture—through every area of society,' Maharishi said. 'So I ask the press—the wise opinion-makers of the world—to suggest something we should do that we have not yet done to create permanent world peace.'
Maharishi's offer to governments and his message to the world press came during his September 29 global news conference, which was broadcast live via satellite broadcast, 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 October 6 and 7.
Maharishi's message is broadcast through a global communications network
Maharishi said his message is being broadcast around the clock through a global communications network that spans all continents, including satellite television broadcasts and Internet webcasts. Maharishi emphasized that he has been repeating the same message day after day, week after week: Every government today can raise its people from dissatisfaction and problems to happiness and peace through total knowledge of the Unified Field—which administers the infinite diversity of the universe with perfect order.
'With the grace of the tradition of Vedic masters, we are offering total knowledge of Natural Law to all the people in terms of their own cultural traditions and in the language of modern science, Vedic Science, and religion. We are offering total knowledge to promote a peaceful life in enlightenment—free from problems and suffering—for everyone,' Maharishi said.
Maharishi repeatedly challenges the world press to fulfill their responsibility
In recent weeks, Maharishi has repeatedly challenged the world press to fulfill their responsibility to deliver his message to world leaders. 'The press should fulfill their duty 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.'
Otherwise, Maharishi said, the press will be forced to continue to report only negative news. 'We live in an undeveloped civilization with a wretched democratic system that divides a nation into pieces through partisan politics. It is the fate of the world press to report unfortunate news in all parts of the world,' said Maharishi, who then added: 'It is true that we need the world press to bring our message to the leaders. However, it is also true that the world press needs us to provide them with useful information to bring to their leaders to create a peaceful, harmonious world.'
Government leaders should first experience deep peace within themselves
In response to a press question about the first step government leaders should take to create permanent world peace, Maharishi said the leaders should experience deep peace within themselves. 'First, everyone should experience the field of peace—the Unified Field—within his own Self through Transcendental Meditation,' Maharishi said. 'Then parents should send their children to the Vedic universities, colleges, and schools to gain total knowledge of the Unified Field—both intellectually and experientially. This is the only way an individual can enjoy a state of inner peace—and this is the only way to create permanent world peace.'
Maharishi said that since gaining total knowledge of the Unified Field is now a possibility through Vedic Education—'a possibility so enormous that it is even beyond all imagination'— that it should be adopted, cultivated, and enjoyed by everyone. 'A properly educated man will be able to quietly fulfill all his desires through the support of total Natural Law,' Maharishi said. 'However, an uneducated man will flounder around in stress and fear and create a nuisance for himself and others—all due to lack of knowledge of total Natural Law.'
'We invite everyone to enjoy the light'
Maharishi concluded by emphasizing the simple truth of his message. 'Only a lighted lamp can remove darkness. We have the lighted lamp and we invite everyone to take it home and enjoy the light,' Maharishi said. 'We have been shouting aloud this message day after day from the field of modern science, Vedic Science, religion, education, health—from every field. What else can we do? Those who are destined to enjoy will enjoy, those who are destined to suffer are destined to suffer.'
