In order to foster peace in the world by establishing a large, coherence-creating group of Yogic Flyers on campus and in Maharishi Vedic City, 85 more Vedic Pandits arrived in March, bringing the total to 600, and 450 more are ready to come and will begin arriving later this month.

Those that arrived in March are being temporarily housed on campus, and construction of modular buildings is beginning on the Vedic Pandit campus in Maharishi Vedic City in order to house all of the Pandits there.

The immediate goal is to have a total of 1,050 Vedic Pandits in order to have a total of 2,500 Yogic Flyers in the community.

Studies have shown that group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique® and TM-Sidhi ® programs, including Yogic Flying®, can foster harmony in society and reduce crime, war, and other negative tendencies. In order to have this influence, research has shown that the size of the group needs to exceed the square root of one percent of the population of a given area. That figure for the United States is 1,743.

Currently funds are being raised to cover the costs of transportation and personal supplies, as well as the additional housing. . . .

As of early May—and the warmer weather—the Yogic Flying numbers had again reached 1,800.
