Top-Ranking Military Leader from India Proposes "Vedic Defence Shield" for
Prevention of War

"Military and diplomatic solutions will never produce lasting peace while
enmity seethes in the hearts of the people. The persistent crisis in the
Middle East alone proves the inadequacy of paper treaties, and underscores
the need for a fundamentally new approach."
-Major General Kulwant Singh

(WASHINGTON, D.C.) A top-ranking army general, who helped lead the fight
against terrorism in India for nearly three decades, is coming to
Washington, D.C. next week to offer President Bush an effective alternative
to his National Missile Defense Shield.

Major General Kulwant Singh, a 35-year career army veteran, backed by a
growing number of top military leaders worldwide, will encourage President
Bush and other world leaders to immediately deploy "Vedic technologies of
defence"-a scientifically proven approach that diffuses regional tensions
and prevents conflict.

"President Bush should be commended for his efforts to defend the American
people from nuclear attack," General Singh said. "There are critics who
argue that the missile shield is untested, costly, and provides no defence
against warheads smuggled in by land or sea.  But the President is
deploying the most advanced technology he knows. To his critics, I say,
'Show the President a better way.' "Fortunately, now there is a better way.
This is why we have come to Washington."

Vedic Technologies of Defence Diffuse Acute Social Stress

"America and India are great allies. We are bringing to President Bush the
best of what India has to offer-the very latest technology in the field of
defence," said General Singh.

"Research confirms that the outbreak of war begins with rising tensions
among rival factions.  Conventional means of defence do nothing to address
this underlying cause of war: mounting tensions in critical hotspots
throughout the world.

"We are offering a proven, prevention-oriented approach, based on Vedic
technologies of consciousness, to diffuse acute social stress-and thereby
prevent enmity from arising.

"Ours is the only new approach with a proven track record-an approach that
is backed by extensive published research," General Singh said.

How Vedic Defence Works

Recent discoveries in the domain of quantum physics and human
consciousness, according to General Singh, reveal that the field of
consciousness is far more basic and powerful than the nuclear field. "This
field of consciousness-termed the unified field in the language of quantum
physics-is millions of times more fundamental and powerful than the nuclear

"We have learned to harness this field through technologies of
consciousness that are simultaneously ancient and modern. They are
described in the ancient Vedic literature, but they have now become the
focus of extensive scientific research. Their application was introduced 25
years ago by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who advocated group practice of
Transcendental Meditation and its advanced techniques, including Yogic
Flying.  To this, Maharishi has added other highly advanced peace-promoting
procedures from the Vedic tradition," General Singh said.

More than 50 studies, published in leading peer-reviewed scientific
journals, have documented the ability of group practice of Transcendental
Meditation and its advanced techniques to reduce societal stress and
violence, and to calm open warfare in war-torn areas. In the mid-1980s this
approach was used to quell violence in the Middle East, and resulted in an
80% drop in war fatalities and war-related injuries, according to articles
published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution and other scientific

Deploying a Vedic Defence Shield in India

More than 25,000 meditating experts are now being assembled in India who,
General Singh said, will produce an "indomitable influence of peace and
coherence in the country. No nation will ever be moved to attack India, as
it becomes a lighthouse of peace and coherence to its neighbours and the

"What better, more humane and cost-effective defence than to prevent the
birth of an enemy?  Isn't this more likely to prevent an attack than a new
arms race that is generating such global fear and heightened hostility
towards the US that it might actually provoke a terrorist attack?"

US Department of Peace

General Singh applauded the efforts of members of the US Congress, led by
Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-Ohio), to counter this new military escalation with
a US Department of Peace, funded at 1% of the military budget.

"Such a department could easily support, even within the ranks of the
military, a 'prevention wing' of 10,000 - 20,000 troops trained in Vedic
technologies of defence that can prevent the outbreak of war. This should
be the true purpose of the military: To keep the peace.  Unfortunately,
nothing in the current military handbooks trains our soldiers to prevent

"That is why it is critical now to implement a prevention wing in the
military utilising these proven Vedic technologies of defence," said
General Singh, who retired from the military in 1995, and is now Defence
Minister of the Global Country of World Peace-a nation without borders
founded to "provide a global home for peace-loving people everywhere," and
to offer governments "proven, prevention-oriented solutions to critical
social problems".

General Singh's Itinerary in Washington

General Singh said he is coming to Washington, D.C. to "present to
President Bush, and representatives of other peace-loving countries, how to
promote invincibility for every nation and permanent world peace by taking
recourse to the higher intelligence of Natural Law, which governs the
universe with perfect order."
