One hundred fifty participants from 13 countries convened for the Third Annual Middle East World Peace Assembly, 11-19 January in Antalya, Turkey.
The participants were all advanced meditators who practised Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying, together every day—a technology of consciousness introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi which has been shown repeatedly through published scientific research to reduce social stress, violence, and conflict, and to create coherence and harmony in society.
Special international guests at the assembly included Dr Tony Nader, MD, PhD, honoured by Maharishi as leader (Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam) of the Global Country of World Peace, which guides the teaching of Maharishi's programmes around the world. Dr Nader is a neuroscientist who correlated each aspect of the Vedic Literature to a specific area of physiology, with the conclusion that human physiology is the expression of Veda and the Vedic Literature, the subject of his first book.
The assembly featured a seminar on Ramayan in Human Physiology, conducted by Dr Nader, based on his second book of that title.
Another special guest was Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, who gave presentations about the rising success of Maharishi's programmes in many countries around the world.
The venue for the assembly was a beautiful five-star resort between the Taurus Mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.
In between meetings and meditation sessions, participants had the opportunity to meet by national and language groups to discuss the knowledge presented during the course, as well as plan for the expansion of programmes to promote peace, prosperity, and better health for the people of their countries, and peace and harmony throughout the Middle East region.

Dr Alex Kutai, director of the Transcendental Meditation programme in Israel, commenting recently about the success of the assembly, read an extended article from Israel's leading newspaper Yediot Ahronot, written by a journalist who attended the assembly. The article, which filled a two-page spread and featured a photo of people practising Yogic Flying, was headlined: 'Flying for Peace'.
The article begins: 'Leave politics aside. In Turkey, Israelites, Palestinians, Iranians, Lebanese, and Egyptians who know how to bring peace to the area gathered together. On the agenda: Transcendental Meditation, including Yogic Flying together. Negotiations, politicians, and diplomats will not bring peace. The only method is ours.'
The article concludes: ' ''Here on the Assembly, we are the citizens of the world. We are all equal,'' the head of the Egyptian delegation tries to explain. ''Maybe we will establish here, alongside the European Union, the middle eastern union,'' smiles an Israeli. And a member of the Palestinian delegation sums up: ''Meditation creates peace first of all between you and yourself. Then it will influence the entire Middle East.'' '
