How many times has the world come close to nuclear war—and how many times has the danger been inexplicably averted, and by what means? Raja Emanuel Schiffgens, Raja (Administrator) of the Global Country of World Peace for an Invincible Germany, recently spoke of dramatic events in December, 1978—which became a turning point in history, leading ultimately to the peaceful unification of Europe. But they began by moving in the opposite direction, he said: a deliberate march over the precipice to nuclear war.

Raja Emanuel began by explaining that 'Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and the Global Country of World Peace, dedicated 1978 as the Year of Invincibility for Every Nation.' This was the height of the Cold War, and Germany was a potential battlefield between Warsaw Pact countries and NATO (North Atlantic Treaty Organization).

In July 1978, the largest military maneuvers since World War II took place in East and West Germany. Soviet submarines were frequently sighted in the Baltic Sea, but most people went about their lives without much alarm, Raja Emanuel recalled.

However, 'Maharishi saw the imminent danger, and made it very clear that the survival of Germany was at stake,' Raja Emanuel said. 'Maharishi created a course—Centre Invincibility Course for the Survival of Germany. That was the official name.'

The course began in October 1978. Approximately 1,500 people in Germany and neighboring countries applied for the course to learn the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, an advanced programme for those already practising Transcendental Meditation.

Raja Emanuel continued, 'At Christmastime, Maharishi called all the course participants together, to the island of Fehmarn in the Baltic Sea, to learn Yogic Flying, the ''super technology of Invincibility''.

'Maharishi's knowledge has two aspects: individual consciousness and collective consciousness,' he explained. 'Two hundred fifty thousand Germans know how beautiful it is to transcend, to experience inner bliss and calmness. But the collective influence of their meditation, and especially group practise of Yogic Flying, creates a peaceful influence for 80 million people of Germany. It's a gift from Nature.'

Part II of this series will feature Raja Emanuel's account of what happened next, as the historic events of December 1978 in Cold War Germany continued to unfold—and the powerful coherence and bliss generated in collective consciousness by Maharishi's special Invincibility course neutralized the imminent danger of nuclear war threatening the nation and the world.

Subsequent articles will feature the in-depth perspective of Lt Col Gunter Chassé, a decorated officer of the German Air Force (retired), who is Deputy Minister of Invincible Defence for the Global Country of World Peace.
