Today the Global Country of World Peace* is holding its annual conference celebrating the achievements of the worldwide programmes and initiatives founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to bring enlightenment to every individual and invincibility to every nation.
During 12 January celebrations throughout his 50 years of teaching Transcendental Meditation and its advanced programmes around the world, Maharishi often brought out the profound principles and mechanics of this vitally important theme of creating invincibility for every nation.
In a historic address on 12 January 1978, inaugurating a major initiative—'Invincibility to Every Nation'—Maharishi explained,
'Life is invincible: this is the principle of indestructibility. The real, real nature of life is indestructible. Surface values of life change, but the inner value of life is invincible in its own right.'
Maharishi inaugurated this initiative on the basis of reduced negativity and rising positivity in the lives of 2 million** people around the world enlivening the invincible inner nature of life in their own consciousness through practising Transcendental Meditation, and several thousand also practising the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme.
Referring to scientific research in the previous few years documenting decreased crime in North American cities where one per cent of the population practised Transcendental Meditation, Maharishi also explained,
'Certainly, this unfoldment of the positive nature of life from within itself happens on the individual level, but it affects the totality of consciousness and raises collective consciousness to invincibility.'
He went on to describe the ideal state of life that will exist in the world when the collective consciousness of every nation has risen to reflect this full development of invincibility:
'Every nation will be self-sufficient in all inner and outer values. Nature will be balanced, there will be no sickness, accidents, or calamities. It is the good fortune of this generation to produce the powerful influence of coherence which will bring invincibility to ourselves and to our nations. . . .
'The totality of life will be open to our awareness. This is how just a few individuals rising to totality are enough to raise the national consciousness to its full dignity. Life in the nation is according to the laws of nature, health is perfect, nature is balanced, and every individual is able to fulfil all his desires without harming the interests of any other person. In fact, his success brings success to others.
'The technique of Transcendental Meditation cultures individual activity in such a way that the interests of the nation as a whole are upheld.'
Another historic lecture by Maharishi, on 12 January 1982, was honoured during today's global celebrations in Maharishi Vedic City, USA; MERU in Holland; the Brahmasthan (geographical centre) of India; and in many other countries.
In 1982 Maharishi celebrated the Silver Jubilee—25th anniversary of the founding of his worldwide Transcendental Meditation organization. In the inaugural celebration on 12 January of that year, Maharishi said,
'In these days of failure in all alliances, the only rescue is in alliance with natural law. Come with the ''Invincible'', which is sitting deep under your own breath; come in alliance with natural law and enjoy life, that's all. It will be very necessary. We just have to focus on that in all our talks everywhere, and in every country we should make it so very popular: alliance with natural law in every home, in every family, in every community, in every city . . . . Now the time has come when the whole world is looking for something which will give a new direction to existence.'

* The Global Country of World Peace was founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as a consortium of educational organizations in more than 100 countries working to create a new era of peace, progress, and prosperity in our world family. It is a 'nation without borders', a home for peace-loving people everywhere. The domain of the Global Country of World Peace is consciousness—the prime mover of life—the ground state of Natural Law, the field of all possibilities. It is a non-political, non-religious global organization and does not usurp or replace any of the functions of existing governments.
