Violence and conflict have plagued mankind throughout history, and the terrorist attacks in busy locations in India's financial capital of Mumbai are their most recent manifestation. How can we protect society from these dangers? A human resource-based approach called Invincible Defence Technology could help militaries to begin creating a lasting peace by preventing enemies from arising.
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.
Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) is a scientifically validated solution to conflict and violence, with over 50 studies confirming its effectiveness. This recently revived method of preventive defense promises to end terrorism and conflict and to set an example of peace-based defense for the rest of the world. . . .
Invincible Defense Technology is rooted in the ancient Vedic knowledge of India, which describes the best approach to prevention as Heyam duhkham anagatam (Yog-Sutra 2.16): ''Avert the danger before it arises.'' Similarly, Yog-Sutra 2.35 affirms Tat sannidhau vairatyagah: ''In the vicinity of Yogic influence—unifying influence, integrating influence, coherent and harmonious influence—conflicting tendencies do not arise.'' These ancient principles applied in the past, and they apply today. . . .
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi revived the practical components of this silent approach of IDT—the Transcendental Meditation (TM) and TM-Sidhi program. . . . Extensive scientific research documents the ability of the TM and TM-Sidhi program to dissolve stress on the individual and collective levels. . . .
Extensive research also indicates that when the square root of 1% of the population practices the advanced TM-Sidhi program in a group, a ''field effect'' is created. Scientists call this field effect the ''Maharishi Effect''. Many carefully controlled studies have documented and validated positive social trends such as reduced conflict and lowered crime rate resulting from the Maharishi Effect.
