Ten years ago, on 28 September 2001, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi presented his Programme to Create Permanent World Peace during his global press conference in seven years. Following are further excerpts from a press release that reported on Maharishi's address a few days after the conference.
Please also see Part I of this press release, in which Maharishi called for the creation of a World Peace Endowment Fund of $1 billion to sustain a group of 40,000 professional ''peace-creators'' trained in proven Vedic technologies of defence on a permanent basis; Maharishi urged government leaders and the most prominent and successful individuals of America and other countries to support the implementation of this proven, preventive approach and avert the imminent threat of war. The press release continues:

Pursuing a military course of action is ''insane''
Maharishi said it was ''insane'' to pursue a military course of action to try and root out terrorism. ''I have all that is needed to stop, completely stop, all the wild gestures of America and its allies,'' he said. . . .
''Who is this man who says, 'I can stop crime'? He is following the same procedures whereby crime has continued, generation after generation.
''The value of science and technology is to prevent all the mistakes that past generations have been committing,'' Maharishi said. ''Prevention is the answer. Vedic performances can create a very strong level of harmony and integrity in all the countries, and that is the only way the tradition of culprits can be stopped. When these 40,000 people will generate coherence in world consciousness, then that coherent world consciousness will not allow negative tendencies to sprout. It is possible to create very strong coherence in the world, and this I am going to do.''
In this context, Maharishi subsequently expressed grave concern for the direction world events were taking in the following weeks, where there was a very precarious balance between supportive power and destructive power. Maharishi made his offer to create peace in the world, but pointed out that it would be possible to engage the 40,000 Vedic peace-creators and ensure world peace only when the Endowment Fund had reached its target of $1 billion.
