On 9 December 2010 Indian Weekender - Pulse of the Kiwi Indian Community, New Zealand reported: The programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, including the Transcendental Meditation Programme, are enjoyed by people around the world. 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 world peace.

The article states that 'India's ''great gift'' is a universal gift that can be adopted by any society regardless of its race, religion or culture.'

'Over six million people in India, and millions more in all parts of the world and from all walks of life have learnt the TM technique,' the article reports.

Extensive scientific research has shown the wide-ranging benefits for both mind and body.

In New Zealand—and in countries around the world—Transcendental Meditation has been offered to students as a programme for 'Stress Free Schools', resulting in myriad benefits including 'marked declines in violence, bullying and anti-social behaviour along with a big improvement in academic and sporting achievements'. 

Additional research has shown that when sufficient numbers—about one per cent of a population—practise Transcendental Meditation it benefits the entire society. Scientists named this phenomenon the 'Maharishi Effect' in honour of Maharishi, who first predicted it in the early 1960s.

'In the past 40 years, about 42,000 New Zealanders have been taught the TM technique. This in itself is about one per cent of the population, but naturally in that time many of that number have left the country . . . etc, the article reports.

'The maintenance of the Maharishi Effect is favoured through the setting up of a permanent group of experts in advanced peace-creating technologies . . . called the TM-Sidhi Programme which includes Yogic Flying.'

The article states that 'group practice of Yogic Flying by just the square root of one per cent of a given population is sufficient to bring the Maharishi Effect to that population. In New Zealand that means a group of not much more than 200 would have that effect for the whole nation. . . .'

The article adds that in addition to the Transcendental Meditation Programme and Yogic Flying, 'Maharishi in his time had also revived the science of Jyotish and Yagya (Vedic astrology), the natural health care system of Ayurveda, Gandharva Veda music, and most importantly Vastu Vidya, Vedic architecture.'

Maharishi 'frequently described the various technologies of Vedic science as India's great gift to the world', the article concludes.
