How Does the Maharishi Effect Work?

During Yogic Flying the brain functions in a completely coherent and integrated way — the full potential of the brain is being used, as scientists have discovered. This experience brings benefits to all areas of life.

However, how can a group of individuals functioning at their full potential influence the entire society?

"The TM-Sidhi program 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-interracting 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."

How is total brain functioning created during Yogic Flying?

Why does the size of the effect depend on the number of Yogic Flyers?

Because the more the Yogic Flyers, the more the physiologies that can reflect the Unified Field, and therefore the more the peaceful and blissful influence they can create.

Scientific Research

It is created by the individual mind accessing its full potential by experiencing the Unified Field of Natural Law, which quantum physics has discovered as the ultimate value of life, the essence and source of all life.

The individual mind contacts its source: the source of the entire world, the Unified Field, which gives rise to quarks, leptons, atoms, and all the levels of the material world, as we see in the chart below.

All the tremendous and unprecedented benefits of TM and Yogic Flying, including total brain functioning, come about as a result of the mind accessing the Unified Field — the total potential of life. This is why we see benefits in all areas of life, which accumulate over time: because the full potential of life is being developed.

Transcendental Meditation allows the conscious mind to expand until it experiences the full nature of reality, the Unified Field, providing the basis for Yogic Flying.

After the practice of Transcendental Meditation, Yogic Flyers begin the practice of the TM-Sidhi program, including Yogic Flying, in which one thinks and acts from the Unified Field, from the source of the material world. By thinking and acting from the Unified Field, the unlimited intelligence of the Unified Field, which is capable of creating and administering the entire universe, becomes powerfully infused into the nature of the more superficial levels of existence.

In Yogic Flying, for example, one thinks from the Unified Field a specific mental formula which contains the desire to fly. On the basis of that desire, the infinite intelligence of the Unified Field becomes infused into the human physiology, into the gross material level of the human body, so that this infinite intelligence can be utilized to make the body lift up into the air and move forward.

This is how, in Yogic Flying, the unlimited intelligence of the Unified Field is brought to the superficial, gross material level of existence, so that its intelligence can be lived and enjoyed on the gross material level on which we live our daily life.

This phenomenon of the infusion of the Unified Field into the level of matter brings tremendous benefits in all areas of life, as science has shown.

Now, in group Yogic Flying, when many individuals infuse the full intelligence of the Unified Field into the gross level of existence in this way, they enliven the Unified Field to such an extend that even the surrounding society benefits. Just as panic, chaos, war, and violence can spread through a city or country, in the same exact way, an influence of peace, orderliness, harmony, more integrated brain functioning, can spread through a city or country in a very rapid way. This is how the Maharishi Effect works.

The Yogic Flyers enliven within themselves the tremendous peaceful power of the Unified Field, and they are able to raise their own quality of life to very high levels, and when they practice Yogic Flying in a group, they are able to enliven the Unified Field to such a great extent that its influence powerfully radiates out to the environment.

Why do the Yogic Flyers have to be in a group?

According to physics, if two loudspeakers are in close proximity to each other and produce the same sound simultaneously, then the volume of the sound produced will be 4 times the volume of one loudspeaker. If three loudspeakers are in close proximity and produce the same sound, then the volume of sound generated will be nine times the volume of one loudspeaker. The volume is equal to the square root of the number of loudspeakers.

Research shows that a similar phenomenon occurs in group Yogic Flying. The influence of group Yogic Flying is roughly equal to the square of the number of people practicing it together.

“Surfing the waves of consciousness is my favorite pastime. It’s exhilarating, astoundingly dynamic, and sublimely simple. You open yourself to the all-powerful creative energy of the universe, and with a simple, innocent intention your body takes a safe leap forward. It’s all so simple, profoundly innocent, yet dynamic and blissful.

“It’s astonishing that in large groups of Yogic Flyers we can feel the waves of bliss coming. For instance, in the Golden Domes we ride the waves of bliss and are again and again set down into the deepest stillness and silence. Up comes another wave to ride. It happens over and over again. What a gift.

“During the practice my senses are fully awake and enlivened. A breeze, a ray of sunshine beamin in on my skin, a tiny bell sounding in the huge Dome, a fragrance, a softness from my own shawl or the smoothness of a sheet — every sense is so enlivened.

“The experience carries over into activity. Life is so charming. I trust my intuition more than ever and pay attention to subtle impulses that have become part of my awareness through these enlivened senses.

“Yogic Flying is about unity. I experience my breath settling, face relaxing, a deep silence shared, and then I am aware of natural waves, rhythms, and a unity of spirit. The continuous waves of life’s pulse and nature’s beat are active. Silence is pervasive amidst dynamic activity. I count my blessings and am thankful to be a Yogic Flyer.”
