The Big Picture
Or, why is the Maharishi Vedic Prevention Center
referred to as a "Peace Palace" Project?
Currently throughout the country, and indeed throughout the
world, "Peace Palaces" are being planned and built to create
peace—peace of mind, peace in the functioning of the body,
and peace in the community and world at large.
Research shows that the programs offered at the Maharishi Vedic
Prevention Center create peace. Whether measured as reduced
anxiety, increased self-actualization, reduced post-traumatic
stress disorder, reduced hypertension, reduced atherosclerosis,
reduced hospital admissions, younger biological age, increased
job satisfaction, improved relationships, or reduced crime and
global tension, the programs we offer create a more peaceful
and balanced individual as the basis for a more peaceful world.
in natural, non-invasive methods to create health and prevent
disease, the benefits of the programs of the Maharishi Vedic
Prevention Center extend beyond the bodies of those participating
in them. Fifty scientific studies indicate that the inner balance
enjoyed by program participants radiates to create more balance
in society. One of these studies, published in the International
Journal of Conflict Resolution, edited at Yale University,
indicated that, even in a war torn area, when a critical number
of people participated in these programs, the quality of life
of the whole area was improved significantly.
The inner intelligence of the body knows what an ideal body
should be. This inner intelligence is the basis of the healing
of a cut, or a broken bone, the refreshment that comes from
a good nights sleep, or of the immune system flushing out intruding
organisms. Balance is the body's most profound quality and tendency.
Unfortunately, current systems of education, health care, economy,
and patterns of daily living do not provide the opportunity
for this inner intelligence to express itself fully. The result
is stress and strain and problems in all areas of life.
The scientifically validated programs of the Maharishi Vedic
Approach to Health provide technologies that enliven the inner
intelligence of the body, release stress, create balance, and
develop the full potential of consciousness. This results in
the development of mental potential, the promotion of ideal
health, and improvements in social behavior and quality of life
in the community.
