The Vedic antidote to violence is contained in Patanjali’s Yoga Sutras. It says:
“Tat sannidhau vairatyagah.” (Yog-Sutra, 2.35)
“In the vicinity of Yogic influence – unifying influence, integrating influence, coherent and harmonious influence – conflicting tendencies do not arise.”
When national consciousness is fully integrated and harmonious, there will not be a chance for any animosities between nations to arise.
“Heyam dukham anagatam.” (yog-Sutra, 2.16)
The best defense is to prevent the enemy from arising.
“Avert the danger before it arises.”
How do we prevent the enemy from arising?
We create an invincible armor around the nation by increasing the harmony and coherence inside the country. Then negative forces will not be able to penetrate into the borders of the nation. A strong shield of inner peace and harmony deflects disharmonious influences.
There have been numerous scientific studies documenting this effect in countless experiments around the world. Practitioners of the TM and Tm-Sidhi program have meditated in conflict-ridden countries and lowered the violence in their vicinity.
