As the world watches on in helplessness the unnerving bloodletting and destruction in Gaza in the aftermath of Hamas’s carnage in Israel, there is someone who genuinely believes that world can fundamentally alter its ways to achieve peace and harmony using Transcendental Meditation techniques. That someone is Dr. Tony Nader, an eminent neuroscientist, successor to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a Transcendental Meditation pioneer who is also a medical doctor trained at Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In the runup to an upcoming two-week event titled ‘10,000 for World Peace’ in Hyderabad, India from December 29, Dr. Nader is urging the world to at least attempt to change its violent ways. He spoke to Mayank Chhaya Reports about the event as well as broader themes.

Background Information on 10,000 for World Peace

Save the dates and mark your calendars

We cordially invite you to join us in a once-in-a-lifetime event that will bring together 10,000 individuals from every corner of the globe to create a wave of peace and harmony throughout the world.

This extraordinary gathering will include global leaders, scientists, and world-famous artists, all united in their dedication to creating a better world.

And you will play the most important role!

Through daily group practice of Transcendental Meditation and the TM-Sidhi program during these weeks, you will:

  • Enhance your personal growth towards higher states of consciousness.
  • Create greater coherence and unity in world consciousness, which scientific research has demonstrated produces more positive global trends and greater cooperation among world leaders to solve the many problems that our world faces today.

The science behind creating a more peaceful world

This is not just a gathering of like-minded individuals; it is a bold and ambitious experiment. Extensive scientific research has shown that when a large enough group practices the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program together, it creates a profound shift in global consciousness, as evidenced by reduced crime, violence, political and social uncertainty, and an increase in positive trends. Over fifty scientific studies have verified this effect.

During this event, scientists will record the effects of this unprecedented large group on world trends.

An immediate impact on world trends

Forty years ago, in December 1983, a similar event was held with over 7,000 participants in the Taste of Utopia Assembly at Maharishi International University in USA, which produced a measurable effect of positivity and harmony in world consciousness at that time.

Not only will this assembly create an immediate impact on world events, but it will lay the foundation for establishing a permanent group of 10,000 for lasting world peace.

An unforgettable experience — Be a part of history

This event promises to be an unforgettable experience for all who participate. Your presence is vital in making it a resounding success.

The time is now, and the power lies within each of us. Join us in this historic journey towards a world that is truly unified. Together, we will create a world that thrives in peace, prosperity, and dignity for all.

If you are practicing the Transcendental Meditation and the TM Sidhi Programme, please contact your local or national Transcendental Meditation organisation for details.
