On 14 December 2008 United News Network of India reported: Many newspapers around the world have printed an article, 'A Proven Approach to Counter Terrorism', by eminent authors including Major General Dr Kulwant Singh (Indian Army, retired), Dr John Hagelin, and Dr David Leffler, which outlines Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's defence plan to make nations invincible. In the wake of recent terrorist attacks in Mumbai, Indian newspapers have taken note of the plan. In featuring the article, India's United News Network headed it with a quote from former President of India (2002 to 2007) APJ Abdul Kalam; UNN addressed General Singh's article to Mr Kalam, who was known as the Missile Man of India for his work on ballistic missile and space rocket technology. 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 quote from the former president, featured by United News Network, was: 'India has to have positive counter-terrorism methods so that we can end terrorism once for all. If evil minds combine, good minds have to cooperate and combat them.' —Former President APJ Abdul Kalam, 2 December 2008.

The article—co-authored* by General Singh, PhD, UYSM; Dr Hagelin, Director of the Institute of Science, Technology and Public Policy (ISTPP) in the United States; and Dr David Leffler—lays out the solution to antiterrorism and a realistic plan for world peace.

The article states, 'The attack by gunmen on Mumbai's landmarks and hotels shows that the armed forces of India, despite their advanced technologies and valiant efforts, are still struggling to eliminate violent extremism and cannot guarantee peace for the nation. Clearly a new approach is needed.

'Violent extremism is a human problem requiring human solutions. The underlying cause of extremist social violence is accumulated social stress. Therefore, to protect the nation effectively, the armed forces need first to reduce the collective societal stress in India.'

A new, easily applied, cost-effective defence technology, called the Invincible Defense Technology (IDT), 'is based upon the most current discoveries in the fields of physics, neuroscience, and physiology', the article states. 'Ultimately, it is based on the discovery of the unified field of all the laws of nature, the most fundamental and powerful level of nature's dynamics.'

Research shows that Invincible Defense Technology, which has its origins in ancient Vedic technologies of consciousness, is a technique that can 'prevent disruption and attack from within the country or outside the country', the article explained.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi took this ancient Vedic technology of consciousness and revived it for our modern times as a non-religious approach to peace.

The article explained, 'These technologies of consciousness directly access and harness the unified field on the deepest level of human experience, pure consciousness itself. Extensive scientific research indicates that this approach reduces collective societal stress, eliminates extremism and thereby snuffs out war and terrorism. Over the past three decades it has been quietly and successfully used by members of many faiths to defuse and eliminate conflict.'

Invincible Defense Technology involves large groups of peace-creating experts practising the technologies together.

'A Prevention Wing of the Military consisting of approximately 2% to 3% of the military of India could easily achieve this goal. This special unit would be trained in the Vedic technologies of consciousness revived by Maharishi, the Transcendental Meditation (TM) and TM-Sidhi Programs, and would practice these techniques in large groups, twice a day,' the article explained.

Extensive research, which was carried out over a number of years on a global scale, shows that the effectiveness of this technology is based on the size of the peace-creating group, which is required to exceed 'the square root of 1% of the population size'.

The article states, 'Since the military of India is funded by the government and its personnel are paid to perform their duties and protect the nation, an IDT group in the military would not be subject to fluctuations of donors, jobs, student graduations, and optional activities. It would be a permanent peace-creating group for the nation.'

In conclusion the article says, 'The armed forces of India are responsible for protecting India, and are obligated to thoroughly examine realistic, scientifically proven methods for ending war and terrorism. IDT is such a method. Therefore, we feel it is the duty of the military of India to create a Prevention Wing of the Military and make India truly invincible. It is the most effective and efficient way for good minds to cooperate and combat terrorism.'
