On 7 January, in answer to a question from the press, Dr John Hagelin, Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace, explained the difference between Transcendental Meditation and the Vedic performance of Yagya.

Presenting principles that have been brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in his Vedic Science and Technology, Dr Hagelin said that Yogic Flying and Transcendental Meditation are practices to experience pure Being and to enliven total Natural Law, the Unified Field, in the individual mind and in collective consciousness. This practice of Yoga has a non-specific, all-pervasive, and holistic, life-supporting influence.

Yagyas represent more 'targeted positivity', Dr Hagelin explained, and are often used to neutralize some impending challenge or danger to an individual, to a corporation, for example, or to an entire nation. Yagya is for targeted positivity—for the achievement of a specific purpose, to prevent problems that are on the horizon, or to 'avert the danger that has not yet come'—Heyam dukham anagatam in the Vedic language.

Dr Hagelin explained that Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying take the awareness to experience the abstract Unity of life, the Unified Field of Natural Law—the universal field of pure life, which nourishes, gives rise to, and sustains everything, according to modern science. This is the application of Yoga, Dr Hagelin said.

Enlivening this universal field of pure positivity globally nourishes every area of life—mind, body, and behaviour—bringing all action in accordance with Natural Law for everyone in society. Positivity grows in the collective life of the nation.

Yagya is also one of Maharishi's Vedic Technologies of Consciousness or Total Knowledge, Dr Hagelin said, and 'targeted positivity' means positivity with some intentionality, or sankalp in the Vedic language.

Through the powerfully effective Vedic knowledge of the use of sound, a particular desire or purpose for a Yagya directs the positive, life-supporting influence generated by the Yagya to achieve a specific end, to effectively neutralize some negativity that may be coming.

The Vedic Pandits, who have been thoroughly trained under Maharishi's guidance, therefore have a double contribution to make to the creation of invincibility and peace for the world, since they perform both Yoga—Yogic Flying—and Yagya to safeguard and bless the world with these universal and specific values of positivity.
