Transcendental Meditation is known to be a technology for peace. We face the dawn of a new and more enlightened age according to Dr David Leffler.
On 21 December 2012, the apocalyptic end of the Mayan Calendar, 8,000 children descended from the Mayan, Mixtec, Zapotec, and other tribes meditated together to help create world peace at Monte Alban. This is a sacred mountain of the Zapotec people in south Mexico. More here.
The Latin American military know this TM practice by large groups of peace-creating experts as Invincible Defence Technology (IDT). IDT has the ability to neutralise the influence of collective stress which is held to be the root cause of terrorism, war, and violent crime.
The training of theses young Mexicans had lasted eight months. Their gathering at Monte Alban was a response to the published research demonstrating the effectiveness of these technologies in defusing social violence. Yogic Flying is held to “avert the danger that has not yet come” – an idea drawn from the ancient Yoga Sutras.
This defense strategy actually works. The Global Union of Scientists for Peace is a coalition of Nobel laureates and leading scientists who see IDT it as the best, most cost-effective way to avert the nastiness of of nuclear arms, terrorism, and weapons of mass destruction. In fact they say it is the only way to establish lasting world peace.
John Hagelin, Ph.D., a famous Harvard-trained quantum physicist who heads the group says: “this powerful, innovative approach to peace has been extensively field-tested – in the Middle East and throughout the world. The consistent result has been dramatic reductions in terrorism, war, and social violence. These findings have been replicated, published in leading academic journals, and endorsed by hundreds of independent scientists and scholars. The efficacy of this approach is beyond question.”
The advanced TM-Sidhi practice has been taught to 8,000 students in 54 schools in southern Mexico and Guatemala during just the past few months.
Over 250 Latin American schools are now participating in this programme. At least 20,000 students will be collectively practicing these peace-creating technologies by this time next year.
The need for peace is emphasised by the tragic recent shootings such as of the striking miners in South Africa and at Sandy Hook elementary school in the USA.
At least nine Latin American nations will soon have fully operational peace-creating groups in military and/or educational settings.
Soon leaders all over the world will be surprised that students can actually protect their parent nations better, safer, and more effectively with an advanced TM meditation practice than with expensive hi-tech military weaponry.
Right here on our doorstep, the first head of state ever to implement such a program was President Joachim Chissano of Mozambique.
Over fifty studies document profound and measurable benefits of IDT for creating peace. Here is a really great summary of 47 of the best of these studies.
One of the best of these studies was conducted during the first Lebanon war. Measures and outcomes were specified in advance for scientific review boards in North America and Israel. The outcomes of this (war deaths dropped 76%) and other such experiments have been published in respected peer-reviewed journals, including the Journal of Conflict Resolution, 1988, 32: 776–812; Social Indicators Research, 1999, 47: 153-201; Journal of Offender Rehabilitation, 2003, 36 (1-4): 283-302; Journal of Social Behavior and Personality, 2005, 17(1): 339-373; Journal of Social Behavior and Personality, 2005, 17(1): 285-338; and Journal of Scientific Exploration, 2009, 23(2): 139-166.
We are beginning to feel the benefits of these interventions. A 2011 Gallup poll measured positive emotions in 148 countries. It found Latin Americans to be the most positive people in the world. So are they positive because of the collective effects of advanced TM practice or did TM stick because they were positive? I think the former.
Certainly Evo Morales Ayma, the President of Bolivia, believes that “the end of the world” is only the end of the world as we know it. At the 67th General Assembly of the United Nations, he said:
“And I would like to say that according to the Mayan calendar on the 21 of December is the end of the non-time and the beginning of time. … the end of selfishness and the beginning of brotherhood, it is the end of individualism and the beginning of collectivism – 21 of December this year. The scientists know very well that this marks the end of an anthropocentric life and the beginning of a bio-centric life.
It is the end of hatred and the beginning of love, the end of lies and beginning of truth. It is the end of sadness and the beginning of happiness, it is the end of division and the beginning of unity, …”
