  • The Maharishi Effect is the phenomenon of the rise of coherence in the collective consciousness of any community.
  • The Maharishi Effect was discovered by social scientists in the USA in 1974 in four towns, where the number of people participating in the Transcendental Meditation Programme had reached one per cent of the town’s population.
  • They noted that when one per cent of the town’s population practised Transcendental Meditation, the trend of rising crime rate was reversed, indicating increasing order and harmony.

‘Research scientists named this phenomenon of rising coherence in the collective consciousness of the whole society the Maharishi Effect, because this was the realization of my promise to society made in the very early days of the Movement (1957).’

‘The phenomenon of the Maharishi Effect (like the phenomenon of the Meissner Effect* in Physics) discovered by scientists has repeatedly verified that coherence in collective consciousness and positivity and harmony in national consciousness is produced by the group practice of my Transcendental Meditation. This has proved to be a formula to create irreversible world peace and Heaven on Earth—all good to everyone and non-good to no one—the basis of a coherent, integrated society and a perfect government.’


Meissner Effect
An Example of Invincibility in the
Quantum Physics of Superconductivity

In an ordinary electrical conductor, incoherent, disordered electrons allow penetration by an external magnetic field.

In a superconductor, coherent collective functioning of the electrons spontaneously excludes an external magnetic field, and maintains its impenetrable status.

This example of invincibility is not unique in Nature; parallel phenomena of invincibility can be found in many aspects of the physical and biological sciences. In each case, it is found that the ability of the system to resist disorder is always based on coherent collective functioning.

Maharishi Effect
Creating an Invincible Armour for the Nation

An invincible border that makes the nation impenetrable to any harmful influence from the outside.
The Maharishi Effect refers to the growth of harmony in society resulting from the practice of Maharishi’s Vedic Technology—the technology of Natural Law—by a small fraction of the population. When the influence of coherence generated by this technology reaches sufficient intensity, an integrated national consciousness is created. This in turn strengthens the cultural integrity of the nation by promoting life in accord with Natural Law. The result is the development of self-sufficiency and an invincible armour for the nation, which automatically repels any negative influence coming from outside.

Thus, the integrated state of national consciousness created by the Maharishi Effect produces a ‘Meissner Effect’ for the nation, rendering it impenetrable to external disorder.

* A universal principle in Nature is that internally coherent systems possess the ability to repel external influences, while incoherent systems are easily penetrated by disorder from outside. This principle of invincibility is clearly illustrated in Physics as the Meissner Effect, and in the functioning of a nation as the Maharishi Effect.

The significance of mentioning the Meissner Effect here is that if the national consciousness of a country is disintegrated and divided, as inevitably results from the opposition-dominated democracy of today, the county will never experience the true meaning of defence, which is invincibility; the country will always be a football of situations and circumstances. Politicians will always be busy criticizing each other, and the whole purpose of administration will be lost in every generation; administration will be weak, the nation will be chaotic, and it will radiate a negative, stressful influence to all the surrounding countries.
