Speaking recently on the Maharishi Global Family Chat, Raja Robert Wynne, Mayor of Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, USA, and Raja of New Zealand for the Global Country of World Peace, answered questions about the Vedic Pandits currently or soon arriving in Maharishi Vedic City and the campus of Maharishi University of Management (MUM) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

Raja Wynne said there are 605 Vedic Pandits now in Maharishi Vedic City and the plan is to have another 450. Soon at least 250 more will come. In Maharishi Nagar, near New Delhi, India, 450 have gathered now with the express purpose of coming to Maharishi Vedic City. They are just finishing all the preparations for coming. Many have gone home to visit their families for ten days before coming to Maharishi Vedic City for two or three years.

The Vedic Pandits themselves have organized that in the buildings where they currently reside, both on the campus of Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City, they can accommodate the arrival of another 250 of their fellow Pandits by doubling and tripling. Raja Wynne said that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, had told the Vedic Pandits here that their job was to create invincibility for America and if they had to double for a while they should do that.

'So they've taken that spirit to heart,' said Raja Wynne, 'as they have in the entire year and a half that they've been here. So we can get the first 250 here with the existing housing that we already have for the Pandits.'

Raja Wynne said that now the next 200 are all ready to come and for that they need additional housing, and he had recently sent out information asking for people who would like to support buildings for the Vedic Pandits, because all the Vedic Pandits would like to be together.

There is an 80-acre campus for them in Maharishi Vedic City, and soon there will be 300 Vedic Pandits on the MUM campus. These Vedic Pandits will move to Maharishi Vedic City when there is new housing. This means that 1,050 Vedic Pandits should be here by June. 'That is enough to create a permanent state of invincibility for America; and even during the vacations in the summertime when the students are gone, the number of Yogic Flyers in the morning and in the evening will never be below the [invincibility] number for the US, which right now is about 1,750,' said Raja Wynne.

Raja Wynne continued to explain that $4.8 million is needed to complete the Vedic Pandit housing. This would be a safe investment, he said, because although the Dr Howard and Dr Alice Settle Foundation for Invincible America cannot support construction, it does contribute $700 per Vedic Pandit per month to cover their operative costs, including the mortgage and all the buildings being built. The Foundation is very well funded and there are other donations that also support the Vedic Pandits.

Raja Wynne reported that a number of people are already supporting this new initiative, and that it will have a good investment return. 'So not only will investors be creating Invincibility for America', he said, they will also be helping themselves.

Raja Wynne explained that one house for 16 Pandits costs $120,000 to build. These houses, which are also 'non-toxic in every way', will arrive as modular constructions; the foundations will be poured in advance, and each house built within two weeks—built somewhere else and then brought to Maharishi Vedic City. Thus, if sufficient support is gathered, those 40 additional homes would be available by July. 'There's just no question about it. . . . plus the fact that we now know how to build houses quickly.'

Dr Peter Swan, Minister of Communication of the Global Country of World Peace and host of Maharishi Global Family Chat, commented that this is an unheard of, historic opportunity for Americans to be able to support the Invincibility of their own country, 'the greatest nation on earth'.

Raja Wynne said they would like to create invincibility by 28 June—Maharishi University of Management Graduation Day—because on that day, the university is awarding Dr Howard Settle and Dr Alice Settle Honorary Doctorates. 'Dr Alice Settle did not want to accept the award unless they have actually achieved their goal of having Invincibility for America,' said Raja Wynne. 'So I guaranteed to them that by 28 June, the number [of Yogic Flyers] would never slip below the Invincibility number morning and evening, so we have to accomplish it now.'

'We need to move fast now [to achieve this] . . . dream of everyone for so long, the dream of all mankind since the beginning of mankind—world peace.'
