On 22 April 2012 TribLocal - Chicago Tribune reported: The 'New Paradigm' tour of 10 North American cities came to Chicago Sunday evening, 22 April. At the event--entitled 'A New Paradigm: Veda, Consciousness, the Ramayana, and the Self'--leading scientists, artists and business leaders explored 'the meeting point of science and spirituality' by presenting pioneering research that reveals the Veda and the Ramayana as blueprints of the human body and the entire universe. Although 650 members of the Indo-American community registered for the sold-out event, hundreds more continued to stream in throughout the evening. It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring fulfilment to the field of culture.

The speakers at the Chicago event come from diverse backgrounds. Tony Nader, M.D., Ph.D., neuroscientist and researcher, headlined the event as the keynote speaker with his presentation, ''Embodying Totality''. Dr. Nader received his Ph.D. in the area of Brain and Cognitive Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and completed post-doctoral work at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Nader's desire to gain a deeper understanding of the human mind and body—of consciousness and physiology—led him to the study of Vedic Science under the guidance of the Vedic sage Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the worldwide Transcendental Meditation movement (TM). Dr. Nader's discoveries have inspired medical doctors and scientists throughout the world by demonstrating the effectiveness of Vedic sound to heal mind, body and society.

John Hagelin, Ph.D., is a world-renowned Harvard-trained quantum physicist, educator, public policy expert, and leading proponent of peace. Winner of the prestigious Kilby Award, Dr. Hagelin was recognized for his achievements as a scientist in the tradition of Einstein, Jeans, Bohr and Eddington. He is Chairman of the Physics Department at Maharishi University of Management. Dr. Hagelin's more technical presentation was on ''Consciousness and the Unified Field,'' and how the practical outcome of large groups of people meditating together can create world peace.

Ramani Ayer was the first Indo-American CEO of a Fortune 100 company. He was Chairman of the Board and CEO of The Hartford Financial Services Group for 13 years, retiring in 2009. Mr. Ayer spoke on ''Enlightened Leadership and World Peace.''
