Canadians recently commemorated a historic address given by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in Ottawa, Ontario on the first day of spring, 21 March 1975—in which he discussed the dawn of a better time in the world, which he referred to as the 'Dawn of the Age of Enlightenment'.
'He brought out the idea of collective consciousness, and the whole idea that society will be affected by people meditating,' said an administrator of the Transcendental Meditation Programme in Canada.
Scientific research had revealed that in cities and towns all over the world where as little as one per cent of the population practised the Transcendental Meditation Technique, the trend of rising crime rate was reversed, indicating increasing order and harmony.
Research scientists named this phenomenon of rising coherence in the collective consciousness of the whole society the Maharishi Effect.
When he inaugurated the dawn of a new era in 1975, Maharishi proclaimed, 'Through the window of science we see the dawn of the Age of Enlightenment'.
Well-wishers of peace in Canada are continuing to make use of the Maharishi Effect to create a better world, particularly through support for establishing a coherence-creating group of 8,000 Maharishi Vedic Pandits in India.
