Maharishi Mahesh Yogi reopens
his Transcendental Meditation Centres
throughout the UK

‘My leaders will resume their national services immediately and raise Great Britain to the height of great Invincibility.’

London, Friday 27 July 2007:-
His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the worldwide Transcendental Meditation Movement, which has been active in the world for over 50 years, has announced that he is lifting the ban on the teaching of Transcendental Meditation (TM) in Great Britain. Maharishi had imposed the ban in May 2005 when the population of the country re-elected Tony Blair as Prime Minister and thereby perpetuated the destructive policy of Britain in the world, including its leading role in the war in Iraq.

Maharishi closed British TM organisation in May 2005
so as not to ‘feed nectar to the destroyer of the world’

During an international press conference on 11 May 2005, Maharishi had said: ‘I am withdrawing my activity from Britain because the island has been so bold in continuously destroying the world and creating divisions and dissensions in every nation, working on the principle of ‘divide and rule’. When I heard that again the same destroyer of the world had been re-elected by the people of England, I decided that I am not going to feed Britain with the positive values that are produced through Transcendental Meditation.’

Maharishi referred to the extensive published scientific research on Transcendental Meditation showing the wide ranging health benefits of the practice, particularly a newly-published study showing that it significantly increases longevity. (See: ) Maharishi said: ‘I don't want to increase the lifespan of the destroyer of the world. British policy has proved for many decades to be poison to the whole world.’

Maharishi's historic initiative to raise whole nations to the level of invincibility

Maharishi emphasised that he did not want it to go down in history that his Movement had fed the destroyers of the world. At that time, Maharishi was adopting countries that were more positive in order to make them invincible – totally immune to negative – through the application of his scientifically validated programme to enhance positive trends in society, based on group practice of Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying.

‘I cannot support long life and healthy life and more creativity for a country that is constantly destroying the world. You cannot afford to feed the scorpion, because a more healthy scorpion will have a stronger sting. Transcendental Meditation is a gift of nectar from me to those who want to create peace and harmony in the world.’

Maharishi predicted at the time that the focus of his organisation on raising positivity and invincibility in countries such as The Netherlands, the USA, and India would help to raise coherence and positivity in world consciousness as a whole – a phenomenon already demonstrated in over 40 published scientific studies over the past 30 years. Maharishi explained that the negativity in British national consciousness could only be neutralised from outside through this rise in world consciousness.

Maharishi acknowledged that although there were many peace-loving people in Great Britain, the country as a whole had nonetheless re-elected such a leadership, and this is why he had to deal with the country in this way. However, now there has been a dramatic shift.

Maharishi hears review of policies of new UK Government

The trigger for Maharishi to reopen his organisation in Britain came when he heard a review of the policies of the new Prime Minister, Mr Gordon Brown, and his Government. These included the fact that one of the first measures introduced by Mr Brown was to initiate a change of Parliamentary procedures so that the Commons has a formal say on the deployment of Armed Forces abroad, so that the Prime Minister could not unilaterally take the country to war.

Maharishi also heard excerpts from the speech of cabinet minister, Douglas Alexander, the new Trade and Development Secretary, as presented in Washington recently. In that speech, Mr Alexander had said: ‘In the 20th century a country's might was too often measured in what they could destroy. In the 21st century strength should be measured by what we can build together. And so we must form new alliances, based on common values, ones not just to protect us from the world, but ones which reach out to the world. …We need to demonstrate by our deeds, words and our actions that we are internationalist, not isolationist, multilateralist, not unilateralist.’

Maharishi lifts all his reservations to make Britain invincible

On hearing this and other positive developments since the change of leadership in Westminster, Maharishi proclaimed that he was completely releasing his hold on the activities of his organisation in Great Britain. Maharishi said that he was lifting all his reservations to make the country invincible, and that the teaching of Transcendental Meditation could be offered again throughout the country. The 50 Centres of Transcendental Meditation, which had been closed down in May 2005 will now be reopened and their facilities improved.

Maharishi saw the words and actions of the new Government as an expression of the changed quality of national consciousness in Great Britain, which had quietly resulted from the activities of his organisation to raise coherence in world consciousness in recent years. Maharishi felt that Britain is no longer shrouded by the politics of war. ‘We feel that England has no barriers for positivity any more,’ he said.

Raising Great Britain to the height of great invincibility

Maharishi said that he is allowing all the leaders of his Movement in Britain to resume their national services. Dr Geoffrey Clements will be the National Leader of Maharishi's organisation in England; David Rae will be the National Leader for Scotland; and Helen Evans will be the National Leader for Wales. (In Northern Ireland, where Maharishi never closed his Movement, Andrea Gribben, continues as National Leader with her programme to make the country invincible.)

Maharishi said that his leaders in Great Britain will ‘raise Great Britain to the height of great invincibility’. Maharishi's National Leaders will make available Transcendental Meditation and all of the programmes of his global organisation, The Global Country of World Peace, to lead every part of the UK to the level of invincibility -- good health, social well-being, prosperity, freedom from crime, a state of all positivity where negative trends will not arise within the nation nor penetrate it from outside.

To mark the reopening of Maharishi's Movement in Britain, a Tower of Invincibility with a Maharishi School of Invincibility will be inaugurated this Sunday, 29 July, at a development near Ipswich in Suffolk that is utilising all of Maharishi's programmes to create an ideal quality of life -- see: Details of this event appear below.

The Tower of Invincibility will be an historic monument for the nation marking the dawn of an invincible country. The Maharishi Invincibility School at the base of the Tower will be an example of ideal education unfolding the full potential of every student and creating an influence of harmony and positivity throughout society through the use of Maharishi's programmes. It will follow in the footsteps of the highly successful Maharishi School established in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, in 1987 – see:

On Sunday, full moon day, representatives of the Global Country of World Peace will perform ground-breaking ceremonies for a Tower of Invincibility in over 150 countries to promote indomitable positivity and harmony in the collective consciousness of each nation, and in the world as a whole.

World peace will be the natural result of Maharishi's programme to create rising invincibility in the 192 countries of the world. Unless every sovereign country is invincible in its own right, the sovereignty of any nation will always remain fragile and world peace will always be elusive.
