Where does this knowledge come from?
The Vedic (VAY-dik) tradition of knowledge, based on the extensive Vedic literature, is the oldest tradition of knowledge in the world. Though it has been long preserved in India, this traditional wisdom has been almost lost in recent centuries—due in part to repeated foreign invasions. The Vedic tradition includes detailed information on a wide range of topics—from astronomy to music, architecture to health care, administration to economy. But it is all based on the knowledge of consciousness—including technologies of consciousness, and evolution to the highest state of consciousness (enlightenment).
The power of peace-creating groups depends upon the experience of Transcendental Consciousness. The mind settles down to a state of inner peace—by experiencing the unified field, the physical field of peace.
To attain Transcendental Consciousness, each peace-creating expert is experienced in transcending —allowing the mind to settle down deep inside. The awareness becomes increasingly quiet—experiencing thought at increasingly subtle levels—until at last the mind transcends thought altogether. It remains wide awake, but undisturbed by even the faintest activity of thought. This is a state of restful alertness, of inner peace—the experience of Transcendental Consciousness.
By enlivening the unified field, the field of peace, the experience of Transcendental Consciousness by groups of peace-creating experts produces an easily measurable influence of coherence and harmony throughout society. Vedic science explains that when a large group of people together experience the inner peace of Transcendental Consciousness, this profound influence of peace then radiates into the entire society. Now 50 demonstration projects and 23 published studies have identified this radiating influence of peace, as measured by reduced crime, accidents, warfare, and terrorism.
