(Meru, Holland) His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi proclaimed to a world gripped by chaos and fear that an ocean of bliss and peace lies within every individual born on earth, and that through the Vedic approach to education everyone can unfold his own inner infinite creative potential to end suffering, rise to enlightenment, and promote a peaceful, prosperous world.
Maharishi also repeated his declaration that the world will take a definite turn towards peace within a few months due to the coherent influence of his peace-creating groups, which are now being established in India and around the globe. 'Forget about the past,' Maharishi said. 'The dark ages of continuous warfare are coming to an end. It doesn't matter how long a hall has been in darkness because with one little candlelight the darkness will disappear.'
Maharishi's proclamation is based on 50 years of experience and extensive scientific research
Maharishi emphasized that his proclamation of a better world is not based on empty hopes but rather on 50 years of experience in bringing enlightenment to millions of people worldwide through his Vedic technologies of consciousness, including the Transcendental Meditation technique--and on the results of more than 600 scientific studies conducted on these technologies in 210 independent universities and research institutions in 33 countries over the past 35 years.
Maharish's striking message to to the world press came during his recent global news conference held on May 26, which was broacast live via satellite and Internet webcast from the Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in Meru, Holland. Maharishi's next global news conferences will be held on June 2 and 3.
Establishing Vedic Universities, Colleges, and Schools in every city to deliver total knowledge to the whole population
Maharishi announced that 'a great gift of enlightenment and peace' awaits mankind through the total knowledge of Natural Law, which administers the universe with perfect order. That is why, Maharishi said, Vedic Universities, Colleges, and Schools are being established in every major city throughout the world. Maharishi said these educational institutions will deliver total knowledge to all the people--students, working adults, and retired people--to unfold the tremendous capabilities within everyone's own inner Being.
In this way, Maharishi said, the Vedic Universities will fulfill the ideal of a true university by providing students with unified knowledge and not just the isolated knowledge of physics, chemistry, mathematics, etc., offered by all other universities. 'A true 'uni-versity' should provide a unified basis to the diversity of knowledge,' Maharishi said. 'But no educational organization today is worthy of that name. Instead, universities pride themselves on their big libraries and their ability to offer all knowledge in one campus. But who wrote those books? Illiterates--people half-educated in the total knowledge of Natural Law.'
In contrast, Maharishi said, Vedic Universities will provide all knowledge in one brain. In this way, 'Vedic education will raise the whole population to the supreme level of human development--Unity consciousness--and create prevention-oriented, problem-free administration in every nation and permanent peace in the world,' Maharishi said.
Occupation-based education is slave-based education
Maharishi also dismissed today's education as 'occupation based' because it trains people to work at a job eight hours a day to make a living--but fails to develop their inner infinite creative potential. 'Eight hours a day of work is for slaves,' Maharishi said. 'Be a master of your own destiny through Vedic education. Practice Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying several hours in the morning and evening to befriend Natural Law. Then you will be soaked in the infinite energy and intelligence of the Unified Field--and then you will be able to achieve all that you want to achieve in life.'
'Through the blessings of the Vedic Tradition of Masters, all mankind will enjoy enlightenment and peace'
Maharishi concluded by emphasizing that every individual must take responsibility for creating permanent world peace by rising to enlightenment. 'Every individual has to decide what he will do to create peace. But he should not look to the skies for answers--he should become enlightened,' Maharishi said. 'Fortunately, enlightenment is going to become the fashion of the coming times; the barbarism in today's world is not going to last much longer. Through the blessings of the Vedic Tradition of Masters, all mankind will enjoy enlightenment and peace in the light of Vedic wisdom--now and for all generations to come.'
