Creating Invincibility in Nepal’s Military


The best way to destroy an enemy is to make them your friend. Crime, terrorism and war in any area of the world are the accumulation of stress and tension of the individuals that make up that society.

Since 1983, it has been demonstrated that when a group of advanced practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique assemble in sufficient number (the square root of 1% of a population), peace begins to break out. The orderliness of individual consciousness of the practitioners spread into the surrounding society.

Today, over 23 scientifically validated peer-reviewed research projects in the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America have validated consistent positive effects—with nearly immediate reductions in war deaths averaging better than 70%.

The Nepal military, along with other nations including Mozambique, Croatia, Cambodia, Brazil and Ecuador, have implemented the Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) which makes use of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) programme and its advanced practices.

Recently, in Nepal, 300 of the teaching staff and 2700 students at the military schools there began practicing the Transcendental Meditation technique.

Because of the initial success of the implementation of the TM programme, officials in Nepal have decided to implement TM in three of their military schools. The programmes are already underway in Chitwan and Pokhara districts. Based on the extensive scientific evidence of the wholistic benefits of the TM programme, the Veterans Society of Nepal and the Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation jointly launched a project to teach the TM program to retired Nepalese army officers and Nepal Army Rehabilitation Center.

Other programmes involving the TM programme are underway in various countries as well. For example, the David Lynch Foundation in the U.S. has implemented its Warrior Wellness Programme, which provides funding to members of the U.S. armed forces who are suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) to learn the TM technique. The benefits of the programme include 40-55% reduction in symptoms of PTSD and depression and 42% decrease in insomnia.

Three hundred and fifty peer-reviewed research studies show that TM improves physical and mental health and wellbeing. TM reduces the pathological and physiological results of chronic stress. Clinical trials and meta-analyses show reductions in: anxiety, high blood pressure, smoking, alcohol use, hardening of the arteries, insulin resistance, and, nearly 50% reduction in risk of heart attack, stroke or death.

Invincible Defense Technology is aptly named. For Nepal, the most important benefit to be gained from implementation of IDT is invincibility for the nation of Nepal. Invincible means incapable of being defeated; unconquerable. Defense means to defend and to protect. Technology is applied science. The goal of IDT is to prevent enemies from arising. The military that properly applies IDT can ultimately obtain victory before war.


Once this goal is achieved, the military becomes invincible because there are no enemies to fight.
