(WASHINGTON, D.C.) In his first press conference in seven years, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, on 28 September 2001, presented a field-tested, peaceful approach based on Vedic technologies of defence to eliminate terrorism and create permanent world peace.
Maharishi spoke live via satellite from Holland to a well-attended press conference at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., with many thousands more connected by teleconference, live webcast, and satellite television.
Maharishi proposed the establishment in India of a group of 40,000 experts trained in proven Vedic technologies of defence, including Transcendental Meditation and related techniques, to neutralize the acute tensions and fears gripping the world today. These experts would generate an indomitable influence of peace and positivity in world consciousness, which will eliminate the enmity and hostility of people everywhere, including terrorists.
''We have the solution to the age-old problem of crime and negativity,'' Maharishi said. ''Crime has been coming up in every generation, and every government has implemented punishments; but crime and punishment continue, generation after generation.
''Now we want to take recourse to that intelligence of Natural Law which in our scientific age is being realized as the most fundamental level of everyone's awareness. This is the time for us in this scientific age to make use of this most fundamental level of life, which is Transcendental Consciousness, and thereby all our thoughts and actions will be fully in accordance with the evolutionary direction of Natural Law.''
Maharishi called for the creation of a World Peace Endowment Fund of $1 billion to sustain the 40,000 professional ''peace-creators'' on a permanent basis. The interest from the Fund would pay for housing facilities and living costs at about $200 per expert per month. Maharishi urged government leaders and the most prominent and successful individuals of America and other countries to support the implementation of this proven, preventive approach and avert the imminent threat of war.
