Reporting on Maharishi Global Family Chat Chat on 3 September, Colonel Gunther Chasse spoke about the progress in the field of defence in different countries. Colonel Chasse is Minister of Defence for Invincible Germany for the Global Country of World Peace.

Speaking about Turkey, he said that the National Director of Defence for the Global Country of World Peace in Turkey used to work at the NATO headquarters during his active professional life. Now he is retired and is a Teacher of the Transcendental Meditation Programme at the Maharishi Invincibility Centre in Izmir, Turkey.

He is currently working on materials about the effectiveness of Transcendental Meditation for the reduction of stress, anxiety, and depression. He is translating these materials into Turkish and then includes them in a special introductory lecture for Turkish airforce veterans.

He is using a very impressive study about Transcendental Meditation in the treatment of post-Vietnam adjustments. This study showed that the Transcendental Meditation treatment group improved significantly from post-traumatic adjustment problems whereas a psychotherapy group showed no significant improvements on any measure.

In his next step, the National Director of Defence hopes to approach active members of the Turkish air force. From his conversations with several pilots at an air force base, he knows how urgently they need Transcendental Meditation for improving and maintaining their concentration and attention at optimum levels while flying—and for optimum relaxation and revitalization on the ground. He is sure that the same is needed for the armoured vehicle personnel as well.

The National Director for Defence said he thought the lecture about invincible defence by Raja Dr John Hagelin—world-renowned quantum physicist, Executive Director of the International Center for Invincible Defense in New York City, USA, and Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace—on the DVD series of Unified Field Conferences is very effective and inspiring and will help to achieve the goal of creating invincibility for Turkey.
