Dear Invincible America Assembly participants,
I want to express my profound gratitude for the deeply moving support and heartfelt wishes I have received from so many of you in my new role as Raja of America. I am honored and excited to work closely with everyone to fulfill Maharishi’s vision of an America at peace—at home and abroad.
My most important initiative, in this holiday season, is to urge all of you to give a priceless gift to yourselves and to America—your renewed commitment to regular group program in the Golden Domes and at Headley Hall.
As Raja of America, my first priority is to achieve our Super Radiance requirement for the United States on a permanent basis. This not only secures the safety and well-being of the nation, but it simultaneously governs our success in all other areas.
During the recent Midwest ice storm, our Super Radiance numbers dipped unavoidably. But now is the time to bring those numbers back up—especially since many of our University students will be away on their winter break from December 20 to January 6. We must keep our numbers as high as possible—and we must do whatever we can to raise those numbers to our target of 2,500 for the U.S.
We are extremely fortunate that so many people from across the nation have joined the Invincible America Assembly to boost our group size toward our Super Radiance requirement of 1,732—and beyond. Their daily contribution to world peace is immeasurable, and we are all deeply grateful for their commitment and participation.
But it is the residents of Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City—those who live here on a permanent basis—who really have the power to lift our numbers over the top. As everyone knows, our Sidha population here is already large enough to accomplish our Super Radiance requirement immediately. We all simply need to make this personal responsibility our first priority.
In addition, I want to encourage all our Fairfield and Maharishi Vedic City residents to help more out-of-town Sidhas to join the Invincible America Assembly by keeping local housing costs low. Paradoxically, the appeal of the Assembly has driven up room rental prices in our community, and now many Sidhas from out of town who would like to join the Assembly simply cannot afford to do so. If at all possible, please make your extra space available at the lowest possible cost—or at no cost at all. Then many more people could make a long-term commitment to the Invincible America Assembly. Please post your available rooms at www.mum.edu/forum.
Thank you all, as always, for your vision and your commitment to lasting peace through Maharishi’s magnificent gift to us of the Invincible America Assembly. I wish you all a very happy and healthy holiday season.
With best wishes,
Jai Guru Dev,
Dr. John Hagelin
