Dr. John Hagelin Offers the UN
and Governments a Proven New Technology to
Secure Invincibility for the Nation

Calls for Establishing in Every Country
a Group of Expertsin the “Invincible Defense Technology”
to Render Every Country Impervious to Attack

(NEW YORK) The acute political, religious, and ethnic tensions that fuel violence and conflict in the Middle East and around the world can be defused immediately by implementing a powerful new “Invincible Defense Technology.” The new technology involves establishing in every country a small group of “peace-creating experts,” whose collective practice of advanced meditation techniques will enliven the Unified Field—the most fundamental and powerful level of nature’s functioning.

The positive, coherent influence created by the group will calm hostilities and thereby prevent any attack.

This was the extraordinary message delivered recently by Dr. John Hagelin, world-renowned quantum physicist and executive director of the International Center for Invincible Defense in New York City, to UN ambassadors, government leaders, and the world press.

“This is science—this is not a fanciful dream”

“This is science—this is not a fanciful dream,” Dr. Hagelin declared. “I am speaking of a new approach to national security and invincibility that is based on the latest discoveries of quantum physics, physiology, and neuroscience, and which has been validated by extensive published scientific research. This new scientific approach provides a practical, proven solution to the problems of violence and conflict—and ensures that every government can immediately secure the safety and security of its people.”

Dr. Hagelin’s message was carried live around the world live via global satellite broadcast and Internet webcast from the newly-inaugurated Global Financial Capital of New York, which is located in the historic 70 Broad Street building, one block from the New York Stock Exchange.

Conventional approaches are powerless to safeguard the nation

Dr. Hagelin was blunt in his message, saying that governments have no choice but to look for an effective new approach to national security. “Conventional military approaches are increasingly powerless to protect a nation against terrorist attack, against new destructive technologies, or against missiles with pinpoint accuracy,” Dr. Hagelin said.

“Diplomatic efforts seem equally powerless. In a world divided by deep-seated hostilities and regional tensions, negotiated settlements and ceasefires have brought temporary relief, at best. Paper treaties and discussions among representatives of warring nations are too fragile a basis for lasting peace,” added Dr. Hagelin, who also serves as the Director of the Global Union of Scientists for Peace.

Dr. Hagelin said the reason conventional approaches fail is because they do not address the underlying cause of violence and conflict: they do not relieve the acute political, ethnic, and religious tensions that fuel terrorism and conflict.

Effects of the Invincible Defense Technology

However, Dr. Hagelin said, a group of a few hundred to a few thousand coherence-creating experts in the nation (the number of experts depends upon the size of the population) practicing the Invincible Defense Technology, which includes the Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying program of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, will immediately:

  • Defuse enmity in a potential adversary, thus preventing the birth of an enemy and the onset of war
  • Create integrated national consciousness, strengthening the nation against any potentially disruptive influences from outside or within
  • Create a peaceful and cooperative global environment, conducive to the formation of stable governments and the cessation of hostilities in regional hot spots

The invincibility of the nation and the peace
of the world hang in the balance

“When a proven technology exists that can immediately prevent conflict, ensure national security, promote permanent world peace, we must not wait even a single day to implement it. The invincibility of the nation and the peace of the world hang in the balance,” Dr. Hagelin said.

Maharishi’s Message to the World Press

“Listen to Dr. John Hagelin’s Address on Invincible Defense—
and Continue to Report on It Until Your Governments Adopt It”

(NEW YORK) Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of the Global Country of World Peace, yesterday praised Dr. John Hagelin, executive director of the International Center for Invincible Defense, for his work to bring to every government a powerful new technology of invincible defense that can prevent violence and conflict and render a nation impervious to attack. And Maharishi called on the world press to keep reporting on Dr. Hagelin’s offer of the new technology until their government leaders adopt it.

Maharishi’s comments came in response to Dr. Hagelin’s keynote address during the “Global Conference on a Proven New Science of Invincibility and Peace.” The conference was held on April 11 at the Global Financial Capital of New York in downtown Manhattan. Dr. Hagelin directed his remarks to UN ambassadors and government leaders worldwide.

Dr. Hagelin called on the leaders to implement the new Invincible Defense Technology, which includes establishing in every country a small group of peace-creating experts whose collective practice of advanced meditation techniques will create coherent national consciousness—the basis of invincibility for the country.

Maharishi lauded Dr. Hagelin as “a great leader of our time,” and said that Dr. Hagelin’s address to the conference contained all the knowledge any nation will ever need to rise to invincibility. “Continue to listen to Dr. Hagelin’s address,” Maharishi told the world press. “And continue to report on Dr. Hagelin’s advice until you have succeeded in inspiring your leaders to adopt it. Then your country will rise to a high level of integration, peace, positivity, and affluence—without any trace of negativity anywhere in the nation,” Maharishi said.
