Global Maharishi Effect
First Experiment to Create the Global Maharishi Effect   Inspired by the success of the TM-Sidhi Programme in reducing negativity and hostilities in different regions of the world, in 1979 Maharishi held the first annual World Peace Assembly to purify world consciousness. Assemblies were held year after year on the international, national, and regional levels with many thousands of Yogic Flyers coming together to raise world consciousness through the group practice of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme.   However, Maharishi explained that just as water only boils at 100 degrees centigrade, only with the square root of one per cent of the world's population, approximately 7,000, practising the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme together in one place, would coherence be produced in world consciousness, leading to world peace.   Therefore, in December 1983, Maharishi assembled for the first time more than 7,000 Yogic Flyers from all over the world to create global coherence in world consciousness and thereby give the world a 'Sample Taste of Utopia'.   This experiment, conducted at Maharishi International University (now Maharishi University of Management) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, from 17 December 1983 to 6 January 1984, was the first experiment to create world peace through the Global Maharishi Effect.   -- See
