Press Release: Global Country of World Peace

Newly established group of 400 Yogic Flyers in Holland is creating coherent national consciousness

First signs: The economy is booming and the government is making better decisions

The world press should watch for the positive trends in Holland and report the news of this historic national transformation

His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi this week issued an urgent global alert to the world press to watch carefully—and report in depth on—the dramatic improvements that are taking place in Holland now that a permanent group of 400 specially trained experts has begun practising the powerful, coherence-creating Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying Programme at Maharishi European Research University in Holland.

Maharishi said the rise of coherence in the collective consciousness of Holland is creating marked improvements in the government and economy of the nation—and in the life of the people—as reported by the Dutch press. The group was established on 12 April. (See for a day-to-day report of the good news from Holland.)

'For 50 years we have been talking about creating invincibility for every nation as the basis of permanent peace in the world. Now, with the establishment of this group of 400 Yogic Flyers, we are raising the first country to invincibility: Holland,' Maharishi said.

Maharishi added that similar coherence-creating groups will soon be established in 23 more countries. 'Then the coherent influence will not remain restricted to those 24 countries: the effect will spread throughout the whole world,' Maharishi said.

Maharishi's alert to the world press came during his global news conference on 24 May, which was broadcast live to all continents via satellite and Internet webcast from the Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland.

Extensive published scientific research has shown that just a small group of Yogic Flyers in a nation is sufficient to raise the collective consciousness of the whole country to a high level of coherence and integration, which is the basis for prevention-oriented, problem-free administration—and invincibility for the nation. The size of the group—from several hundred to several thousand experts—depends upon the population size of the nation. Research shows that 400 Yogic Flyers is the required number to influence the entire population of 16 million people of Holland.

Maharishi concluded the news conference by congratulating the world press. 'The world press has long been burdened with the job of reporting the bad news of a problem-ridden world—but now the world press is in the fortunate position of being able to begin to report the good news of a world in transformation,' said Maharishi, who then emphasized: 'This global transformation is not a hopeful dream of some distant future; rather it is a day-to-day phenomenon that began several weeks ago in one country—Holland—and is ongoing today. Our world of stress, struggle, and strife is being transformed into a world of peace and harmony. It's the dawn of a new time for mankind where all the people will be able to enjoy invincibility rising in every country.'


Brief summary of positive new trends in Holland generated by the group of 400 Yogic Flyers at Maharishi European Research University

'The government is governed by the collective consciousness of the people. If national consciousness is incoherent, the government is incoherent. If national consciousness is coherent, the decisions of the government will be coherent—and the people will enjoy good health, prosperity, and peace.'—Maharishi

A seven-week analysis of Dutch newspaper reports since the establishment on 12 April of the group of 400 Yogic Flyers at Maharishi European Research University reveals that from the very first day the government began to act more coherently, decisively, and with greater support for the people and greater concern for the environment. Following are a few of the many positive emerging new political and economic trends cited in the Dutch press:

Economic Indicators:

Economic indicators for April were significantly above earlier projections: unemployment was down sharply, there was a marked increase in new jobs created, consumer and business confidence was the highest since 2000, and the highest average number of daily stock exchange transactions on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange occurred in April. Holland's economic boom continued during May, with nearly every major economic index in or near the 'Hoogconjunctuur (Economic Boom) Quadrant in the Economic Climate Clock' published by Centraal Bureau van de Statistiek—indicating a robust and rapidly expanding national economy.

Government Policy:

Holland enjoyed an unexpected windfall of 4 billion euros during the first quarter of 2006. In a surprising and decisive response to the news, the government demonstrated its parental role for the nation in April by returning to the people a significant portion of the revenues by lowering social premiums and providing enhanced allowances to decrease the steep difference between gross and net income. The government also introduced bold tax reduction plans for business—and many social programmes were allotted extra financial support. Contentious, highly partisan issues that had gridlocked the government for years were suddenly and harmoniously resolved during April and May.
