Coming back to Fairfield, Iowa, USA, where Maharishi University of Management (MUM) is located, I would like to mention, that a great part of the population of this city is also actively contributing to the coherence of North America and the whole world. Or should I say “silently” instead of actively?
Did you see Oprah Winfrey’s show this spring? She went with her video team to Fairfield, visited MUM, and the Maharishi-School, the “domes” (the meditation halls), and talked to the citizens. Since she is a TM-meditator herself, she participated in the group meditation in the ladies dome. Click the photo and you will see her more clearly.
Yes, every day about 1200 to 1400 people in Fairfield – students, professors, layers, designers, carpenters, businessmen, farmers, housewives etc. – come together and enliven the field of pure awareness in their mind, in their brain, in their physiology. And it spreads through the walls all over the country, all over the world … but the world is big, so we need more people who generate coherence in this profound manner.
Scientific research has shown that a phase transition takes place in society once the number of people equivalent to the square root of 1 % of the population of a town, city, state, country or even the world (yes, latter has been demonstrated already in 1983/84) practice the Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi program (an advanced program including Yogic Flying) together in a group, morning and evening. The result is reduction of violence and crime, less accidents, more upsurge of life supporting trends and positivity. Please refer to http://www.mum.edu/m_effect/ This is called the Maharishi-Effect, referring to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi the founder of the TM and TM-Sidhi program.
