On 16 November 2006 The Philadelphia Inquirer reported:
Maharishi Peace Palaces are to be built in West Philadelphia and Cherry Hill, Pennsylvania, USA so that one per cent of the population of the community may gather to practise Transcendental Meditation, thus helping to end wars and create world peace.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of world peace.
The Peace Palaces will follow Vedic design principles that will help maintain the good health of the Transcendental Meditation practitioners, the article explained.
Bill Sands, Director of the Maharishi Enlightenment Center in Paoli said that up to ten Peace Palaces could eventually be built in the area, along with the global plan of 3,000 Palaces being built in the world's largest cities.
The article explained that 'As their memberships grow ... palaces here and elsewhere will generate what followers call 'the Maharishi effect.' By enlisting just 1 per cent of a community to meditate ... negative energy and violence are banished. When that positive force is duplicated in hundreds or thousands of places, the ripples will expand like rings in a pond, changing cities, countries and, eventually, the world.'
The Inquirer reported that Peace Palaces 'in Maryland, Kentucky, Iowa and other states are centers not only for teaching TM but for Maharishi-brand spas and Vedic vibration technology, which proponents say enhance inner-intelligence. Sands expects those services to be available locally, as well'.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
