Today Great Britain celebrates the historic first visit of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to England 50 years ago. Maharishi came with a message to transform the lives of million of people through the simple practice of Transcendental Meditation, a technique to harmonize the outer field of material existence with the inner experience of Transcendental Consciousness, the Unified Field of Natural Law.
Maharishi arrived in London on 13 December 1959 and spent much of the following year there, making it his European headquarters. He toured some of the main university cities in England and Scotland during 1960, making his first visit to Scotland in November. He visited many European countries during the same year.
This special anniversary will be celebrated with the launch of plans to build a Maharishi Tower of Invincibility in London. The Tower will be a centre for all of Maharishi's knowledge and programmes, as well as a memorial to his achievements.
There will be a special 'National Coherence Day', in which many practitioners of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme will meet in cities around the country to practice these technologies together in groups, to create coherence in national consciousness, the basis of invincibility for the nation. Leaders of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in Great Britain, including a number of those who were with Maharishi in the very early days, will share their memories and reflections of that very special time.
This will be followed by a press conference in London, on Monday 14 December at 1 Great George Street, at which the plans to build the Maharishi Tower of Invincibility will be announced. In addition, there will be a series of presentations describing Maharishi's programmes in the fields of Consciousness-Based Education, health, business, and agriculture.
An initiative will be announced to offer Transcendental Meditation to 1,000 doctors, 1,000 teachers, and 1,000 business people, and to leaders in other fields including the military.
