The simple technique of Transcendental Meditation is the greatest gift in the history of mankind, said Dr Howard Settle recently. Dr Settle and his wife, Dr Alice Settle, are co-founders of the Howard and Alice Settle Foundation for an Invincible America. For the past three and a half years they've been generously supporting the Invincible America Assembly at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA and nearby Maharishi Vedic City.
The Assembly is a national coherence-creating group of 1,800 Yogic Flyers, including almost 1,000 Maharishi Vedic Pandits, who also conduct the Maharishi Yagya Programme to create invincibility for America and peace for the whole world.
Dr Howard and Dr Alice Settle were celebrated for this outstanding achievement and their remarkable generosity during the 12 January global celebrations of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland.
Dr Howard Settle expressed their profound gratitude to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace;Maharishi's Master, Guru Dev*; and the Vedic Tradition of knowledge, 'for the great treasures given to each of us.'
'There is nothing greater that can be given to a human being than the gift of enlightenment,' Dr Settle said, 'and Maharishi's gifts of Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme are the utterly simple techniques by which every individual can experience the highest states of consciousness** without effort.'
Dr Settle said that this simple technique of Transcendental Meditation is perhaps the greatest gift in the history of mankind. It is unique, he said, because it is available to everyone on earth. 'Maharishi's great genius and extraordinary contribution is the gift of transcendence through Transcendental Meditation, which can be given to anyone at any time, at any place; which is a gift for all generations.'
Dr Settle pointed out that Maharishi's compassion extended far beyond giving the gift of enlightenment to a fortunate few. He wanted nothing less than Heaven on Earth for every living being, for all generations to come.
'In this regard Maharishi has given us the absolute formula,' Dr Settle continued. 'He gave us the keys to the treasury, and he has unveiled the secrets of the ages. Maharishi has provided the answers to the world's most profound question. The most elusive goal in the history of human beings is the universal quest for world peace, for global prosperity.
'This is accomplished through another technique Maharishi gave us—'super radiance' [called the Maharishi Effect by scientists]—which is the technique of waves of coherence being created by large groups [practising Yogic Flying together]. We know this technology works from the body of scientific evidence gathered by Dr John Hagelin** and others. This evidence is, in my mind, without controversy; the scientific evidence . . . is irrefutable. Now, in recent months we can see for ourselves the dawning of the light in the United States.'
Dr Settle said that for the positive trends emerging in US national consciousness, we give all credit to those participating in the Invincible American Assembly. 'Let me take this opportunity for Alice and me to express our greatest appreciation and our deepest love to each and every individual who is creating invincibility for America. We thank you for this extraordinary gift that you are giving to America and to the world.'
In the coming days, Global Good News will feature the second part of Dr Settle's address, in which he outlines positive changes that have taken place in the United States due to the Maharishi Effect.
* Guru Dev: Maharishi's Master, His Divinity Brahmanand Saraswati, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Himalayas. Guru Dev is revered as the embodiment of Vedic wisdom closest to Maharishi in the illustrious tradition of Vedic Masters who have passed down the eternal wisdom of life from teacher to student since time immemorial.
** Maharishi explains that beyond the familiar states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping are four higher states of consciousness—Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness—each bringing a new dimension of physiological functioning, experience, knowledge, and fulfillment.
