In a speech in Chicago earlier this year, Dr Ramani Ayer spoke about America's unique role in creating peace in the world.
Dr Ayer's address is one of several featured in a newly released special presentation entitled 'Science, Consciousness, Veda, and the Self: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Gift of Knowledge to the World'. The presentation was recorded at the Meadows Club in Chicago during the New Paradigm Tour of North America.
Dr Ayer* is a respected business leader who, since his retirement, has been focusing on ways to promote global harmony and create world peace. A longtime practitioner of the Transcendental Meditation programme, he described its founder, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, as 'a sage unmatched in our lifetime'.
With the largely Indo-American audience of nearly 1,000 at the Meadows Club, Dr Ayer discussed Maharishi's approach to creating peace for the world—a central element of which is the establishment of a group of 9,000 peace-creating experts, Maharishi Vedic Pandits, in India.
The United States also has a special role in this Global Peace Initiative, he said.
'Given America's unique leadership position in the world, given its capacity to lead constructively [and create] positive changes in the world,' Maharishi felt it was important to create that same 'N-squared' effect in this country, Dr Ayer explained.
The N-squared effect was explained earlier in the presentation by quantum physicist Dr John Hagelin. Scientists have found that when the square root of 1% of a population practises Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, an influence of coherence is produced that is sufficient to reverse negative trends and promote positive, peaceful trends in society. They named this phenomenon the Maharishi Effect in honour of Maharishi, who first predicted it over fifty years ago.
According to this formula, Dr Ayer said, the goal for the United States is to have a group of 2,000 people practising Transcendental Meditation and the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme, 'of which 1,250 would be performing both Yoga and Yagya'.**
The foundation of such a group has been established in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. Dr Ayer showed a photo of a group of 750 residents of this unique community practising the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi programme together, with the purpose to create peace and prosperity for the nation.
Maharishi placed a high priority on 'making sure that America creates and spawns peaceful trends of the world', Dr Ayer said.
* Dr Ayer was the first Indo-American CEO of a Fortune 500 company, serving as Chairman of the Board and CEO of Hartford Financial Services Group for 13 years.
** Yoga refers to the daily group practice of Maharishi's technologies of consciousness to create world peace—Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying. Maharishi Yagyas are precise Vedic performances conducted by Maharishi Vedic Pandits, to create specific life-supporting influences for individuals, nations, and the world from the field of pure consciousness, the Unified Field of total natural law, which is enlivened in the Pandits' consciousness through their daily advanced meditation practice.
