On 9 November 2009, the world celebrated the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Only one month before that historic event, the leader of East Germany had declared, 'This wall will stand for a hundred years.' Yet the Wall fell spontaneously, and without a single shot fired. Even today, leaders can only say it was a miracle.
'We know how it happened,' said Dr Emanuel Schiffgens, Raja (Administrator) of Invincible Germany for the Global Country of World Peace.* (Please see Part I.)
'At that time (1989), Maharishi Mahesh Yogi—Founder of the Transcendental Meditation Programme and the Global Country of World Peace—collected 7,000 Vedic Pandits in India to conduct Yagyas—specific peace-creating performances to purify world consciousness.
Maharishi also invited Yogic Flyers—practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme—to participate in an initiative to enliven coherence and unity in the collective consciousness of Germany.
Participants committed to daily long sessions of Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying in groups for at least six months. This initiative started on 15 September 1989, with 200 Yogic Flyers in 14 centres throughout Germany. At the same time, 4,000 Yogic Flyers were attending a World Peace Assembly in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
Raja Emanuel also gave recognition to the contributions to the initiative made by coherence-creating groups of the Maharishi Purusha Programme and the Mother Divine Programme.
By the end of September, 100,000 East and West Germans began demonstrating—proclaiming, 'We are one people'. Said Lt Col Gunter Chassé,** Deputy Minister of Defence for the Global Country of World Peace, 'This reflected the unifying power of Natural Law enlivened by the Vedic Pandits and Yogic Flyers.'
Another Global Good News article will feature the conclusion of Raja Emanuel and Col Chassé's report, in which they recounted the stunning events of November 1989, when the Wall came down, in light of the coherence-creating effect of all the Yogic Flyers and the Maharishi Vedic Pandits in India.
* Raja Emanuel and Colonel Chassé's report was featured on the 9 November Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
** Col Chassé is a retired officer in the German Air Force. Maharishi honoured him with the title 'Founder of Invincible Germany'.
