17 August 2005 Maharishi Global Press Conference
“I keep on finding what more can be added to my program of world peace, and this came out to be a very very essential feature, equally important.
If you don’t handle the body properly, it will be difficult for the programme of Transcendental Meditation to maintain the body so that the body is driven by higher states of consciousness.
This is as much as is necessary—just as food is necessary—is good.
Good nourishing food is necessary.
Good nourishing home is necessary.
Same way, good nourishing mother is necessary.
Now mother is becoming fashion… And what the slogan is: ‘Equal rights to women’. Put mothers at home. If you let them come home tired, then children have no relaxed mother at home. Every generation of children will be weaker and weaker nation.
Look to America! American civilization is an example of this. Every generation of children are weaker and weaker and weaker and weaker. And a lot of crime.
But fortunately I see, mothers of America waking up. They have woken up—some of them—even if it is countable, some of them, that ‘our children are not properly fed.’
When the mother also comes tired from activity, father also comes tired of activity, the children look to whom? Empty skies.
Every generation will always be weaker and weaker and weaker and weaker.”
