Nepal's military experiments with IDT
Jitendra J. Karki and David Leffler




 



Nepal's army schools are finishing their first stage implementation of Invincible Defence Technology (IDT). The ultimate goal of IDT is to prevent enemies from arising by reducing the collective societal stress that culminates in war, terrorism, and crime. IDT involves use of the Transcendental Meditation (TM) technique and its advanced practices, ideally by the military, to reduce this collective societal stress. Extensive peer-reviewed research has documented the efficacy of this approach. Militaries and police worldwide have successfully field-tested and are now using this approach.

The army school in Bhaktapur, Nepal was the first military school to implement TM. Three hundred of its teaching staff and 2700 students there have greatly benefited from practising TM, according to TM teacher Ms. Pappy Regmi. Ms. Regmi says: "TM has been practised by the students of Sainik Awasiya Mahavidyalaya Sallaghari Bhaktapur for the past three years. After the students mastered the simple, natural, and easy-to-learn TM procedure, we noticed many positive changes in them. They are less irritable, aggressive and destructive in nature than before. Many students improved their academic performance. This non-religious scientifically-validated technique is helping the students in their overall development."

 Mr. Samim Anwar Shamim, the former Principal of the army school, also noticed improvements: "Daily Transcendental Meditation practice in the school greatly reduced the abuse problems and antisocial behaviour of students. It has been the best tool to maintain discipline and healthy environment in the premises of the army school."

There are many other individual benefits to be gained for warriors who regularly practice TM. Three hundred ninety five peer reviewed studies show that TM improves physical and mental health and well-being. 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 a nearly 50 per cent reduction in risk of heart attack, stroke or death.

Due to the initial success of IDT implementation, the Nepal Army Welfare Directorate has taken IDT seriously and has decided to implement it in three schools of the Nepal army. Two army schools from Chitwan and Pokhara have already started the TM programme as a part of the project.

There are other important IDT benefits. Research has shown that the TM technique promotes development and resilience, improves wellness, and dramatically reduces burnout and symptoms of post-traumatic stress. For this reason, the Veterans Society of Nepal and the Nepal Maharishi Vedic Foundation jointly launched a project to teach the TM programme to retired army personnel. Due to their combined efforts, retired Nepalese army officers and war casualties at Nepal Army Rehabilitation Centre have learned TM.

The individual benefits of IDT for the warrior are promising. Invincible Defence Technology is aptly named. 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. Defence 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 it can ultimately obtain victory before war. Once this goal is achieved, the military becomes invincible because there are no enemies to fight.

Former Home Minister, Deepak Prakash Baskota was one of the first Nepalese leaders to advocate military use of IDT to create invincibility. In an 2012 article published in Eurasia Review titled "How Nepal Can Have An 'Invincible' Military" he wrote: "Leaders in Nepal could make their mark if they adopt this most ideal defence system. The implementation of IDT would mark a turning-point in the history of Nepal's national defence, and the leaders in Nepal would also be leading the world into perpetual peace."

Nepalese military leaders were wise to follow his advice. These are exciting times for the military of Nepal as increased numbers of TM meditators in the army schools will be learning a more advanced practice of IDT. In just a short time these warriors will have an even more powerful influence. IDT "Prevention Wings of the Military" will accelerate reduction of Nepal's collective stress.

When their training is complete they will be able to operate directly at the level of the unified field of all the laws of nature -- a level that is a thousand million, million (10 to the 15th power) times more powerful than the nuclear force. It is the level where all the fundamental forces of natures are united. For this reason, IDT supersedes all other known defence technologies (which are based on electronic, chemical, and/or nuclear forces). Therefore, the military of Nepal will gain the ultimate strategic advantage of invincibility by averting the rise of any enemy and they will achieve victory before war.
