It’s amazing that Transcendental Meditation Guru Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is 89 years old and still commands a large following with his quirky ideas and claims.

He’s built up a Vedic City in Iowa, U.S.A., where the famed Guru is organizing a mass meditation of 2000 adept practitioners of meditation (called as ‘yogic fliers’) for sending “a wave of positivity across the globe” for world peace and prosperity.

The preliminary effect of this transformation has already been felt in the U.S. where the assembly (christened Invincible America Assembly) has 1500 adepts meditating. It “is quietly transforming the nation and raising the country to a permanent state of peace, prosperity, and invincibility.”

“And when the number of Yogic Flyers reaches the square root of one percent of the U.S. population (about 2000), there will be an even more dramatic improvement…”

The Maharishi has a knack for linking all his fanciful ideas to some cryptic Vedic hymns and cloaking his gibberish in the language of modern science with the help of some of his well educated followers.

“The ‘non-linear partial differential equations’ governing the weather obey the characteristics of chaos theory. As a consequence, weather patterns are sensitive to infinitesimal changes in initial conditions—a phenomenon popularly known as the ‘Butterfly Effect.’ Even minute changes in people’s behavior can precipitate—or prevent—a hurricane. The Invincible America Assembly is raising the quality of collective consciousness—and of behavior throughout society—to be more harmonious, more life supporting. And Nature is responding more positively,” Dr. Hagelin said. (Link)

Dr. John Hagelin, it’s said, is a world-renowned quantum physicist and director of the Invincible America Assembly.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi claims that-

“simultaneous mass meditation creates a wave effect that calms the world, influences stock markets, decreases crime rates and prompts other positive societal behavior.” (Link)
