Today is the 25th day of the seventh month of national consciousness rising to invincibility, as indicated by the following press reports:

5 November 2006

Trouw: 'Volunteers make the difference' - More than 37,000 people have worked for a good cause this year—7,000 more than last year—as part of the Make a Difference Day (MADD). In several places in Holland activities were organized to recruit people for volunteer work, and at least 40 per cent of the volunteers were young people.

Trouw: 'Dutch approach successfully helps fighters start new life. Netherlands fulfills pioneering role in support of Columbian peace process' - While fighters are encouraged to desert their para-military groups, their re-integration into society is problematic. According to Pax Christi, the Netherlands has donated €1.3 million to a successful programme that helps integrate the ex-military back into society.

De Telegraaf: 'Holland is a country where you can safely buy a second-hand car' - According to foreigners, Holland is a reliable country. On a list of the most competitive countries, the nation has risen from the middle, to a position near the top. According to an ABN Amro study, better education will ensure that Holland continues to climb the innovation ladder.

De Telegraaf: 'Higher tax free import' - Rules for European imports are becoming more relaxed. Until recently, only €175 could be imported from outside the European Union. Now that amount will be raised to €300 per person.

Het Financieele Dagblad: 'Spotlight on company suppliers. Association of Investors for Sustainable Development gives prize for orderly, sustainable management chain' - International Dutch companies place great importance on ensuring the sustainable nature of products at every stage of production and management. The companies want to be sure that production at every step upholds fair labour and is non-polluting. The Association of Investors for Sustainable Development has decided to further encourage responsible management by offering a prize to the company with the most orderly management chain. Nominees are Philips, Reed Elsevier, Shell and Unilever.

Het Financieele Dagblad: 'New record in volume of real estate investments' - In October, for the first time this year, real estate investments approached € 2 billion. If the current trend continues, the volume for 2006 will well surpass that of 2005.

NRC Handelsblad: 'Economic growth in EU larger than expected' - The economic growth in the European Union this year is even higher than was estimated two months ago. The European Commission has increased the estimate from 2.7 per cent to 2.8 per cent. Last year growth was 1.7 per cent. Holland's economic growth is higher than the rest of Europe, at 3.0 per cent.

NRC Handelsblad: 'Rabobank to offer Muslim mortgage' - Rabobank offers what is called a 'halal' mortgage for Muslims, who, according to Muslim law, are not allowed to pay interest. The bank buys the home and the applicant pays it off in installments. There are still some details to be resolved concerning the interest tax deduction one receives with a regular mortgage, but the Treasury Department is looking into solving the problem.

Creating national invincibility

Groups of experts in Yogic Flying are engaged in creating coherent national consciousness in the Netherlands, United States, Canada, Hamsa (Hungary), and an increasing number of other nations, which are enjoying a dramatic and sustained upsurge in positive economic and social trends.

Dr Paul Gelderloos, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace for the Netherlands, reports that 400 Yogic Flyers have been assembled at MERU, the Netherlands, since 12 April 2006.

Extensive research published in the world's leading scientific journals has found that the group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme Yogic Flying by the square root of one per cent of a population is sufficient to reduce negative trends, including crime and violence, and to promote positive economic and social tendencies throughout society.

The cost to train and employ such a group is a small fraction of what any government spends on its military in a single day.

Maharishi's approach to invincibility is in sharp contrast to the conventional military approach. 'Our approach does not require the government to sacrifice the youth for the sake of the nation—because when the youth are killed in war, then for whom is the nation?' Maharishi said.

The harmony and progress of the human race are founded on the internal harmony and progress of every individual. No stress, no strain, no impediment, no difficulty can withstand the totally benign influence of the enlivenment of the Unified Field of Natural Law, the field of Transcendental Consciousness, the field of pure knowledge, through Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme.

Refer to: Scientific Research on Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme: Collected Papers, Volumes 1-5 (over 5,000 pages; Volumes 6-7 in press), a Maharishi University of Management Publication.
