When collective consciousness becomes coherent and total Natural Law lively, nations enjoy what Maharishi calls the Fundamentals of Culture stability, adaptability, integration, purification, and growth. These qualities harmonize the ever-changing nature of progress with the non-changing nature of culture: With STABILITY, a culture will not be overthrown by influences from outside. With ADAPTABILITY, cultures can flexibly adapt to change With INTEGRATION, they can absorb from outside any influences useful to their own identity and progress. With PURIFICATION, cultures can eliminate values not conducive to progress. With GROWTH, outside influences will promote progress without damaging cultural integrity.
