On 8 September 2008 Fiji Daily Post reported:
Invincible Defence Technology is the way to world peace. The prevention strategy, introduced by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, would alleviate the world-suffering caused by greedy governments and arms dealers who profit from war. 'Intelligent military thinking dictates that you prevent the birth of an enemy -- that you make your enemy into your friend. It will be much easier to make your enemy your friend than it will be to defend yourself against an unseen enemy,' Maharishi said.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of world peace.
'The strategy is very simple', Maharishi was quoted as saying. 'No enemies, no war or terrorism. With no enemies, the military becomes invincible.'
Advocates of the peace-creating technology say that over 600 scientific studies conducted at hundreds of universities and research institutes verify that the primary components of the system—the Transcendental Meditation (TM) and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme—work.
The article states, 'This research indicates that all areas of life are affected in a positive way: mind, body, behaviour, and the environment. Findings published in leading peer-reviewed journals include: improved work relations, increased creativity and intelligence, increased productivity, and improved health, as well as reduced stress-related diseases, and decreases in terrorism, war and crime.'
The Invincible Defence Technology, Maharishi's Vedic system of defence, has been presented to governments by 'eminent scientists and other emissaries', the article stated.
The plan is to have every country create Prevention Wings of the Military whose primary duty is to practise Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme.
However, most governments still cling to the idea that war is a deterrent to war, and create fear among populations. Many world leaders refuse to adopt the plan because of the profits that can be gained from the sale of arms.
Maharishi was quoted as saying, 'This is what is happening in Israel, in Northern Ireland, everywhere. Selling arms is a shameful profession. Arms dealers tell defence ministers: ''Your neighbour has this new fighter plane and that new missile, so you must have them, too, or your security will be jeopardised.'' Even poor countries go deeply in debt purchasing these weapons. It's shameful for arms sellers to live on the killing of others.'
He went on to say, 'The military is not competent to defend the country against an enemy that cannot be seen, or against a missile that can come and put the whole society to ashes. The military is only competent to die and kill. And both are a sin: getting oneself killed is a sin, and killing another is a sin. It's a very ignorant approach to defence. Prevention is the only way to defend the nation, and the only effective prevention is Vedic defence, which prevents the birth of an enemy.'
Maharishi said that armed forces have outlived their usefulness.
He said, 'The times have changed. ''Defend the nation by killing your enemy'' is an outdated military strategy. It is obsolete. You kill your enemy today and another enemy will kill you tomorrow—and then what is left?'
'Prevention is the only way for defence,' he said.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
