After several years of anticipation, the Vedic Pandits from India have begun arriving, contributing significantly to the goal of the Invincible America Assembly of gathering up to 2,000 Yogic Flyers in the community in order to foster harmony and peace in the world.
While their housing is being completed in Maharishi Vedic City over the next month, the Vedic Pandits are temporarily being housed on campus in residence halls that were renovated on short notice.
Approximately 50 Vedic Pandits arrived last Friday, and as this issue of The Review goes to press, more Pandits are expected to arrive every day. The Pandits flew into Chicago and were greeted in festive fashion, with garlands and bagpipe music.
Housing is being prepared for 300-400 Vedic Pandits on campus, the total that is currently expected to arrive in the coming week. As housing is constructed in Maharishi Vedic City, even larger numbers of Pandits may come. About 1,000 Pandits are expected to be in the community within two months to swell the numbers on the Invincible America Assembly so that the Maharishi Effect is achieved for the United States.
The goal of hosting the Vedic Pandits and the participants on the Invincible America Assembly is to foster peace and coherence in the world via group practice of the Transcendental Meditation® and TM-Sidhi® programs. This group practice creates a phenomenon called the Maharishi Effect, which is the influence of coherence and positivity in the social and natural environment.
Over 40 research studies indicate the benefits of this effect, which requires the square root of one percent of the population to practice the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs in a group. The number of practitioners needed for the U.S. is 1,730.
The Vedic Pandits will live, dine, and do group practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programs in the residence halls called frats. They will also participate in Maharishi Yagya® performances in each of their buildings, creating an additional profound positive effect on collective consciousness. In about one month the Pandits will relocate to Maharishi Vedic City.
The mayor of Maharishi Vedic City and Raja of Vedic America, Dr. Robert G. Wynne, along with the University's legal counsel, Bill Goldstein, traveled to India in mid-September to organize for the Pandits to come to the U.S.
