Maharishi's Programmes

TM-Siddhi Programme

'The TM Sidhi Programme is the key to heavenly life on earth. This is because it trains the conscious mind to function from bliss consciousness, the self-referral state of pure consciousness, which is the total potential of Natural Law. It trains the awareness to function in the same self-interacting style as the intelligence of Nature. Functioning from this level the individual gains mastery over Natural Law. With this perfect science and technology of Natural Law, we are in a position to accomplish anything -- we are in a position to create Heaven on Earth.'

—Maharishi

To Develop Higher States of Consciousness,
Bring Life into Accord with Natural Law,
and Create Heaven on Earth

The TM-Sidhi Programme is an advanced aspect of Transcendental Meditation. The Transcendental Meditation technique opens the awareness to Transcendental Consciousness, the Unified Field of Natural Law, which is the basis of everyone's awareness. The TM-Sidhi programme cultures the ability to think and act from this level. By learning to function from this self-referral state of pure consciousness, which is the total potential of Natural Law, the mind gains increasing Support of Nature for the fulfilment of desires.

With the TM-Sidhi programme, co-ordination between mind and body is greatly enhanced, and thought and action spontaneously become more in accord with the evolutionary power of Natural Law. This results in greater skill in action -- the ability to fulfil one's desires naturally while effortlessly promoting the evolution of everyone and everything.

The TM-Sidhi programme may be learned after several months of regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique, accelerating the progress of the individual towards realising his full potential -- the state of enlightenment.

Benefits to the Individual

The TM-Sidhi programme develops higher levels of intelligence, learning ability, creativity, and neurological efficiency. Scientific research studies indicate that the TM-Sidhi programme cultures a profound integration of brain functioning (EEG coherence). The enlivenment of pure consciousness during the TM-Sidhi programme promotes an optimal state of brain functioning and provides the basis for the unfoldment of the individual's full creative intelligence.

Increased Brain Wave Coherence

Yogic Flying

One aspect of the TM-Sidhi programme is called Yogic Flying. During the first stage of Yogic Flying, the body lifts up and moves forward in short hops. Subjectively one experiences exhilaration, lightness, and bliss. EEG studies show that during this practice, at the moment the body lifts up, coherence and integration is maximum in brain wave activity. This optimum coherence in brain functioning creates perfect mind/body co-ordination which is expressed by Yogic Flying. This coherence indicates action from Transcendental Consciousness, the Unified Field of Natural Law, where infinite organising power is lively. When Yogic Flying is practised in groups, this influence of coherence spreads throughout the environment, reducing negative tendencies and promoting positive, harmonious trends in the whole society.

Benefits of the TM-Sidhi Programme --
Practical, Holistic, and Scientifically Validated

Over 80,000 people have learned the TM-Sidhi programme. Like the Transcendental Meditation technique, its benefits are practical, holistic, and scientifically validated. Individuals who have learned the TM-Sidhi programme often comment that it accelerates the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation programme, improving health, increasing happiness, and enhancing one's ability to gain support from the environment in fulfilling desires.

More than 500 scientific research studies, conducted at over 200 universities and research institutions in 30 countries, document the benefits of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme for mind, body, behaviour, and society.

Extended Maharishi Effect

When the TM-Sidhi programme is practised in groups, it further enhances the benefits to the individual and at the same time benefits society as a whole. To date, over 40 scientific research studies have demonstrated a new formula -- that even a small number of individuals -- approximately the square root of one percent of the population -- practising this programme together morning and evening in one place, is sufficient to neutralise negative tendencies and promote positive trends throughout the whole population..

This phenomenon is called the Extended Maharishi Effect in honour of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who predicted it 40 years ago.

Global Maharishi Effect

Research has shown that groups of individuals practising Yogic Flying -- all enjoying very high brainwave coherence -- create coherence in collective consciousness, and generate a unifying and integrating effect in the life of society. This results in a decrease of negative trends throughout society -- such as crime, accidents, and sickness -- and an increase in positive social, economic, and political trends. Scientific studies on this phenomenon have demonstrated that a group of at least 7,000 Yogic Flyers can produce this coherence-creating effect on a global scale, reducing violent and negative trends world-wide.

The Global Maharishi Effect was created by the group practice of 7,000 Yogic Flyers (7,000 being approximately the square root of one per cent of the world's population) during three large "World Peace Assemblies" that were held over a period of two to three weeks in the U. S.A., Holland, and India.

The secret of the Global Maharishi Effect is the phenomenon known to Physics as the "Field Effect", the effect of coherence and positivity produced from the field of infinite correlation -- the self-referral field of least excitation of consciousness -- the field of Transcendental Consciousness, which is basic to creation and permeates all life everywhere.

Decreased International Conflicts

Invitation to Create Heaven on Earth

Heaven on Earth is being created through the complete scientific knowledge of Natural Law which is now available to everyone through the programmes of Maharishi's Vedic Science and Technology. The Transcendental Meditation programme, its Advanced Technique programme, and the TM-Sidhi programme are precious aspects of Maharishi's Vedic Science and Technology. They are the practical means to create Heaven on Earth because they develop bliss consciousness in the individual, so that no matter where one may be on earth, one is always in Heaven. Furthermore, when practised in groups, these programmes enliven positivity and harmony in Nature resulting in ever-increasing progress, happiness, success, and prosperity in the daily life of everyone in society. Therefore, you are cordially invited to practise the TM-Sidhi programme and create Heaven on Earth for yourself, your family, your community, and for all mankind.

How to Learn the TM-Sidhi Programme

Applicants for the TM-Sidhi programme must have been practising the Transcendental Meditation technique for several months. The TM-Sidhi programme can be learned through the Maharishi Ved Vigyan Bhavan in your area.
