Be a Custodian of Peace for a More Peaceful World
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi often used the analogy that in order for a forest to be green, all the trees that make up the forest must be green. In the same way, for a family, a community, a country, or the world to be in peace, the individuals who make up that family, or community, or country, or the world must be living and radiating peace and harmony.
Extensive scientific research has shown that when a critical number of people practice the Transcendental Meditation and advanced Transcendental Meditation-Sidhi Programme together in a group, good things happen. Tension and incoherence—the root cause of personal and social stress—melt away and positive trends rise.
The initial study took place in 1974 when social scientists started to look at all the cities in the USA that had a higher concentration of meditators practicing Transcendental Meditation. This study revealed that it was only necessary to have a fraction of an entire population meditating to create a more orderly and peaceful effect in the environment.
The Maharishi Effect
Those cities that had just one percent of their population meditating experienced a significant drop in crime rate, hospital admissions, and other negative indicators in society. The scientists called this effect The Maharishi Effect, in honor of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the founder of Transcendental Meditation, who predicted this effect.
Further research on the advanced program, the Transcendental Meditation-Sidhi Programme (including Yogic Flying), showed that when the square root of one percent of the population practiced this advanced programme together in groups, it was enough to create a positive change in society. In every study that was done, the findings revealed that the influence of peace and positivity increased.
We Are Such A Group
This is our profession—women, around the globe, practicing the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, together, day after day, during our "office hours".
For more than 37 years, we have traveled around the world to bring an influence of peace and harmony, whenever and wherever it was most needed.
In recent years, the European chapters of the Mother Divine Programme have been located in The Netherlands and Switzerland in order to create a stable basis for peace and coherence in Europe, and through Europe to the whole world.
There are affiliate groups of the Mother Divine Programme in the United Kingdom, North America, South America, Southeast Asia, and Australasia.
We would like to create large groups of the Mother Divine Programme to contribute maximum harmony, peace, and coherence on a global scale.
Together with help from all of our supporters—our silent partners—we can ensure that the future of the world is bright.
An Oasis of Peace
'As time goes on,
our efforts will be more and
more fruitful to have larger numbers of Mother Divine.
They will be the centres of
peace on earth,
like oases in the desert.
The areas of Mother Divine, the homes of Mother Divine,
they are the oases in the desert.
Then the whole desert is
going to be transformed
into very fertile, very fruitful land.’
—Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
