Ten years ago, on 28 September 2001, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi presented his Programme to Create Permanent World Peace during his first global press conference in seven years. Following are further excerpts from a press release that reported on Maharishi's programme a few days after the conference.
Please also see Part I and Part II of this press release, in which Maharishi commented on the futility of the US and other governments' plans to pursue a military course of action to attempt to root out terrorism, and called for a large group of experts trained in Vedic technologies of defence. ''Prevention is the answer. Vedic performances can create a very strong level of harmony and integrity in all the countries,'' Maharishi said, ''. . . . then that coherent world consciousness will not allow negative tendencies to sprout.'' The press release continues:

Research physicist presents scientific validation
John Hagelin, PhD, Harvard-trained quantum physicist and Executive Director of the International Center for Invincible Defense, chaired the news conference in Washington and outlined the theory and research supporting this peaceful approach. He said Maharishi's approach had been scientifically shown, in extensive published research, to markedly reduce violence and terrorism, even in war-torn areas such as the Middle East. The results have appeared in leading scientific journals, such as Social Indicators Research and Yale's Journal of Conflict Resolution.
''These technologies of consciousness diffuse social stress and negativity and generate positive waves of harmony and unity in the collective consciousness of the world,'' he said. ''They access and stimulate the most powerful level of mind and matter, identified by modern science as the Unified Field, the fundamental level of nature's intelligence that connects us all. We now have available a technology of peace, a truly defensive technology that attacks the problems of violence and negativity at their source. Research shows this works.''
Responding to a question about the Endowment Fund for Permanent World Peace, Dr Hagelin commented that $1 billion was less than the price of one B-2 bomber—''less than the Defense Department spends in one day.''
