New Zealand, renowned for its idyllic beauty, is becoming an ideal society, according to Raja Robert Wynne, Raja (Administrator) of Invincible New Zealand for the Global Country of World Peace. This organization, established by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Technique, offers programmes in every country to create an ideal society—health, education, economic prosperity, and world peace.

Raja Wynne, who is also Mayor of Maharishi Vedic City, USA*, recently visited New Zealand for a 10-day Invincibility Tour. 'New Zealand is spectacular, and it is a thrill to be here,' said Raja Wynne. He held a conference with 42 Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, discussing their objectives to create an invincible nation, characterized by increased positive trends in all areas of society.

Forty-two thousand New Zealanders have learnt the Transcendental Meditation Technique since 1962, and 440 people have taken the advanced course, the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme including Yogic Flying. The organization's goal is to establish a group of 208 Yogic Flyers in one place—called a coherence-creating group—to ensure harmony and progress for the nation.

During the tour, Raja Wynne and a group of Transcendental Meditation Teachers met with mayors, native community leaders, and school officials. Two schools, with a combined total of 500 students, have begun the Stress-Free Schools programme, which offers the Transcendental Meditation Technique to school administrators, faculty, and students. This programme has been extremely successful in many countries, resulting in improved academic performance, and improved quality of life for the students, teachers, and the community.

Significant funding for the project has been raised, including a $50,000 (USD) matching grant from the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace.

* Maharishi Vedic City, in Iowa, USA, is a model of an ideal society, and is the first new city in the world to bring to its citizens the ancient Vedic principles of life and living in accord with Natural Law. Mayor Wynne has also been instrumental in the ongoing success of the Invincible America Assembly in Vedic City and at Maharishi University of Management in nearby Fairfield. The Assembly began in July 2006, and now includes approximately 2,000 Yogic Flyers creating coherence for the United States and an influence of peace for the world.
