"Terrorism, Retaliation & Victory"
Col. Brian Rees: A New Research Report
A new book by U.S. Army Col. Brian Rees entitled "Terrorism, Retaliation and
Victory: Awaken the Soul of America to Defeat Terrorism Without Casualties"
discusses a study published in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation showing
72% reduction in international terrorism using
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Invincible Defense Technology.
The remarkable findings show that large groups of peace-creating meditation
experts decrease international conflicts, including deaths and injuries due to
The study reports that group practice of the
Transcendental Meditation(TM) and TM-Sidhi program by 7,000 people
decreases terrorism and international conflicts worldwide.
On three different occasions during 1983-1995, groups of approximately 7,000
meditators were formed for periods lasting from 8 to 11 days, twice in the
United States and once in Holland. The effects were studied using terrorism data
collected completely independently by the Rand Corporation, the renowned
California think tank:
- Five days after the assemblies started, terrorist activities in the
world calmed down, the study reports.
- The study also found that warfare due to national and international
conflicts decreased by approximately 30%.
- Assessment of the effects on warfare came from reports appearing in the
New York Times and London Times.
- "Our formula predicts that the square root of 1% of the world
population meditating together would be needed to create a worldwide effect.
That number was approximately 7,000 at the time of the study," said study
author Dr. David Orme-Johnson of Maharishi University of Management.
- "We found that the effect could not be explained by any trends or cycles
in the data, or by the time of year or other factors. Nothing else was
happening that could have explained the sudden drop in armed conflicts
throughout the world at that time," said the study's coauthor Dr. Michael
Dillbeck, also of Maharishi University of Management.
Group Meditation Produces Coherence
So how does it work?
- According to the researchers, the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi
programs take the mind to its innermost
state of silence, which is the unified field of natural law, the source of
order in the universe.
- When enough people in society
experience this level of awareness, then the coherence of the unified field
is spread throughout the world, softening ancient ethnic, political, and
economic stresses that are at the basis of war.
- "Fifty studies have shown that the influence of Transcendental
Meditation on the larger society is to
replace crime, hostility and fighting with mutual respect and cooperation,"
said Dr. Orme-Johnson.
Experts Emphasize Importance of This
According to Professor Ved Nanda, Director of International Legal Studies
at the University of Denver College of Law:
"These studies provide a great hope for humanity, a breath of fresh air.
We have repeatedly seen that international law, treaties, and even the
United Nations cannot prevent war, or even contain it within certain rules
such as the Geneva Convention. Can we afford to overlook this research? It
breaks my heart that so many people are being killed every day, including
many fine young Americans, when we haven't even tried this first."
Another proponent of trying this approach is Dr. David Edwards, Professor
of Government at the University of Texas at Austin:
"Although I myself have not been directly involved in this
research, from my perspective of almost 40 years of study of foreign policy,
arms control, and theories of social change, I can say that this is
extremely significant research. I have participated in urging members of
Congress and other government leaders to try it. The cost of implementing a
permanent coherence creating group in the world is less than a single B2
"Peace Palaces" Being Established
So far, the U.S. government has not added this approach to its arsenal of
defense strategies, so Maharishi Mahesh Yogi,
who pioneered this approach to peace, is organizing a permanent group of
40,000 in India and 3,000 Peace Palaces throughout the world. Peace Palaces
are places where these techniques are taught and practiced to generate
coherence in their local region.
A Peace Palace was inaugurated on April 10 in the Catskills of New York.
In addition to creating coherence for the New York area, it will serve as a
place where members of the United Nations can go to learn more about this
