An Urgent Message from Raja John Hagelin
Dear Yogic Flyers,
Exactly 25 years ago, in the presence of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Maharishi International University offered the world a Sweet Taste of Utopia.
More than 8,000 Yogic Flyers from more than 80 countries descended on the frozen cornfields of Fairfield for this historic, world-transforming gathering.
Many of our Invincible America participants share precious memories of that epic experience 25 years ago. I myself vividly recall the bliss of doing group program with such a large group and sitting with our dear Maharishi as he addressed our assembly from such a fulfilled level.
I also recall the heroic efforts of all the organizers who had to overcome the challenge of weeks and weeks of bitter cold temperatures in their preparation to receive so many guests, as well as the bravery of all who came despite record low temperatures.
The cold was a challenge, yet we lived and thrived—and we can now bask in the warm glow of having participated in a legendary event that history will celebrate and cherish.
And now I ask you, just as Maharishi did 25 years ago, to once again defy the challenges of snow, ice, and bitter cold and make that heroic effort to come out for group program.
These days are no less historic! For the past seven months, our Invincible America Assembly numbers have exceeded the National Super Radiance threshold every day—an unprecedented achievement. But during the past week, our evening Assembly numbers have again dipped below that critical threshold, and the number of Yogic Flyers in our Golden Domes has dropped to about ½ of where we were just three weeks ago.
And, as always, the consequences of this drop were unmistakable. During the previous week, we had gained such widespread national momentum for a sustainable, eco-friendly Secretary of Agriculture that our success seemed irreversible. But suddenly, that momentum flopped, and a supporter of old-school chemical and biotech agribusiness unexpectedly slipped through.
We can do better. We need to do better. Please bundle up, show up, and keep our numbers up.
Let’s give our new president all the support he needs to lead America to invincibility.
Thank you so much.
Jai Guru Dev
