10,000 course in India

2000 at MIU will contribute to the blast of coherence from the India course.

Join us for this once-in-a-lifetime event bringing together 2,000 at MIU to complement the 10,000 in India bringing peace to the world.

These extraordinary gatherings on both sides of the world, as well as many gatherings on all continents, will include global leaders, international celebrities, and experts in Maharishi’s technologies of consciousness, all united in their dedication to creating a better world.

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

  • Enhance our 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 urgent problems we face today.

A bold and ambitious experiment

10,000 course in India

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi

Extensive scientific research shows that large groups practicing the TM and TM-Sidhi programs together create a profound shift in the collective consciousness, evidenced by reduced crime, violence, and other negative trends, together with increased positive trends. Fifty-six scientific studies have verified this effect. During this event, scientists will measure the effects of these large groups on societal trends.

Recreating and surpassing the effect from forty years ago

This assembly will create an immediate impact on world events, and also lay the foundation for establishing permanent groups for lasting world peace.

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

An unforgettable experience

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.
