*At Maharishi Vedic University, Vlodrop, Holland and by Live Telecast Worldwide on the Internet at www.Maharishi-Fund.org (Repeated at 8 pm CET). For more details see page 4 of this release.
On Friday 6th February, in an historic global ceremony broadcast live on the Internet, a scientist, Professor Tony Nader, M.D., Ph. D., will receive his weight in gold.
This award from Maharishi Vedic University of Holland comes in honour of a supreme scientific discovery, and will be bestowed in the presence of His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the greatest scientific genius in the field of consciousness, who has opened the gate of enlightenment to millions throughout the world.
The award is being offered with the support of the Maharishi Global Development Fund – in fact, it is the first performance of this $400 million Fund recently set up in the U.S.A. to support the development and reconstruction of the world according to Natural Law.
Professor Nader's Historic Research: Opening a New Highway for Global Development
Professor Nader is being honoured for his discovery that the Veda and Vedic Literature, the structure and function of Natural Law which is the managing intelligence of the universe, is at the basis of the human physiology. His research findings are described in his historic work: Human Physiology – Expression of Veda and Vedic Literature.
Professor Nader's discovery has opened a highway for the global unfoldment of the infinite creative intelligence of every human being. With this discovery, we can now fully evolve the inner intelligence of the body, so stress and strain and sickness and disease can be disallowed.
The real cosmic nature of the individual can now blossom, and there will be an end to all suffering and problems in society and in government, and automatically life everywhere will be Heaven on Earth.
The Brilliance of Nobel Prize Winning Research Now Brought to Fulfilment by Professor Nader's Achievement
We acknowledge the brilliance of all those who have won Nobel prizes for great scientific discoveries.
Indeed the great tradition of modern scientific research on the human physiology during the past three hundred years has been vital for Professor Nader's discovery. We honour that great research, and the scientists and doctors who performed it.
Professor Nader's research now brings to fulfilment these great scientific achievements of the past, and opens the door to all possibilities for human life.
Professor Nader's Unique Background for this Research
Professor Nader is a medical doctor, and has a Ph.D. in Brain and Cognitive sciences, so he is deeply versed in scientific research in the field of Physiology and Neuroscience. He is, in addition, a world expert on the discoveries in the field of consciousness brought to light by his Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi over the past 40 years from the Veda and Vedic Literature.
With this unique background and broad understanding, Professor Nader has over the past ten years rigorously studied – with the inspiration and guidance of Maharishi – the relationship between these two great traditions: Modern Physiology with its objective approach and ancient Vedic Science with its subjective approach.
Professor Nader's Discovery – Every Individual Is Truly Cosmic
Through this research Professor Nader has been able to demonstrate conclusively that the 40 aspects of Veda and Vedic Literature – the supreme intelligence of Natural Law, which is the self-referral dynamism of the Unified Field of Natural Law – is at the basis of our human physiology – from the DNA molecule to the cell to the whole functioning body.
He has further demonstrated that the whole cosmos is locatable at all these levels of the physiology, so the individual is truly cosmic, and deeply influenced by the movements of the cosmic bodies, such as the sun, moon, planets and stars.
Vedic Technologies of Consciousness Enlivening the Inner Intelligence of the Body
Most importantly, his discoveries have revealed that Vedic technologies of consciousness can enliven this inner intelligence of the physiology, and create an ideal, harmonious relationship between the individual and the cosmos.
Professor Nader's discovery has made it possible for human beings to realise their cosmic potential, and has opened a new highway to perfection for human life. Therefore his discovery is the supreme achievement in the history of science – more beneficial than any Nobel Prize winning research.
Just as the discovery of the quantum mechanical and unified field theories have effaced the understanding of physics from a classical perspective, this discovery reveals that intelligence is at the basis of the human physiology and the entire universe, and shows us how to handle the inner intelligence of the physiology for the unfoldment of the total potential of life.
The celebration of this achievement is not just a scientific milestone, but an historic moment for all of life on earth.
Professor Nader To Be Weighed on a Special Scale
At 12:50 p.m. on Friday 6th February, the award ceremony will take place at the centrepoint of a beautiful new house in Vlodrop, which is the main building of Maharishi Vedic University, and which has been constructed exactly according to the ancient Vedic principles of architecture in accord with Natural Law – Maharishi Sthapatya Veda.
Professor Nader will be seated on one side of a special scale, and gold will be piled up on the other side until the scale balances. This gold then will be given to Professor Nader as his scientific award, and deposited in a bank to support his continued scientific work.
During the ceremony, Professor Nader will respond with a special address to the global audience and members of the press about his most recent discoveries in the physiology – particularly concerning the specific location in the human brain of the intelligence which rules the universe.
Their Weight in Silver for His Research Colleagues
Professor Nader's colleagues, Dr. Volker Schanbacher from Germany, and Dr. Keith Wallace and Ted Wallace from the United States, and Dr. Walter Mölk and Dr. Rainer Picha from Austria, who have recently joined Maharishi Vedic University, and have assisted him in continuing the research, will then take their turn on the scale. Silver will be piled up equivalent to their weights, and this will be granted to them in honour of their achievements.
Physiology Professors and Students Informed
News of this award is being given to all universities in the world, and particularly to the professors and students of departments of Physiology, Neuroscience and Medicine, to inspire them with this great scientific achievement.
Courses in Professor Nader's discovery ranging in length from 3 days to 3 years will be available to the academic community from Maharishi Vedic University. Study for the Ph.D. degree with Professor Nader and his team will also be possible for very highly qualified candidates.
Support from the Maharishi Global Development Fund
The Board of the Maharishi Global Development Fund has decided to support Maharishi Vedic University in making this award, and to make this the first performance of the Fund.
The Fund has been established to reconstruct the buildings, offices and cities of the world so they are properly oriented to Natural Law, according to the ancient Vedic science of architecture and city planning in harmony with Natural Law.
The Fund has concluded that Professor Nader's research has provided a powerful scientific basis for this programme because it has demonstrated how crucial is the relationship of individual life to cosmic life, and how vital it is to maintain balance between the individual nature of intelligence and its cosmic status, so that natural harmony and order prevail, and everyone enjoys maximum health, happiness and good fortune.
Extensive Research on the Vedic Technologies of Consciousness
It should be noted that over 600 scientific research studies from 200 universities in 30 countries over the past 30 years have confirmed the benefits of the Vedic technologies of consciousness such as Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi programme, including Yogic Flying, for business, education, health, rehabilitation, crime reduction and the creation of world peace. (See attached page for details of the research.)
Most recently Professor Nader has conducted a double-blind controlled study on the effect of a new Maharishi Vedic Technology for instant relief from chronic diseases, and particularly relief from pain, with highly significant findings. This study is available on the Internet at www.Vedic-Health.com.

Research Validating the Practical Significance of Professor Nader's Discovery
More than 600 scientific research studies, conducted at over 200 universities and research institutions in 30 countries, demonstrate the profound and practical benefits that result from enlivening the inner intelligence of human physiology and consciousness. These research papers, collected from scientific journals into six volumes of over 5,000 pages, verify that Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme is unique in developing the full potential of mind, body, behaviour, and society.
Taken as a whole, these studies establish that each of the 40 qualities of Natural Law, discovered by Professor Nader in human physiology, is systematically developed through Maharishi's Technologies of Consciousness. This transformation has been measured physiologically, psychologically, sociologically, and in the collective health of society as a whole.
Benefits for Health
For example, health research supported by the United States National Institutes of Health shows that Transcendental Meditation improves cardiovascular functioning, as measured by reduction of high blood pressure. Studies conducted by researchers at the National Institute of Industrial Health of the Japanese Ministry of Labour showed improved physical and mental health among industrial workers. A study of hundreds of individuals participating in Maharishi's Vedic Approach to Health showed 60% less medical expenditures compared to norms; participants over age 45 had 88% fewer patient days in the hospital compared to matched controls.
A large body of studies demonstrate that the effects of the Transcendental Meditation Programme on physiological, biochemical, psychological, sensory-motor, and health parameters are the reverse of the usual ageing process. This conclusion is supported by studies showing younger biological age among those who practise Transcendental Meditation, and increased longevity among the elderly who begin this programme.
A recent double-blind, random-assignment study of the Maharishi Instant Relief treatment (an aspect of Maharishi's Vedic Health Care System) given to 176 people suffering from chronic arthritis and back pain, showed immediate, 100% relief of pain as the most common response to a few minutes of treatment. Other studies found similar results with this treatment for other chronic conditions, including asthma, migraine and headache, gastrointestinal and liver disorders, and skin disorders.
Benefits for Education, Business, and Society as a Whole
Research has repeatedly shown increased intelligence and creativity, increased self-actualization, and improved academic performance among students of all ages who learn the Transcendental Meditation Programme. Studies in business settings show increased productivity, improved job performance and job satisfaction, and improved health of executives and employees through this programme.
Most significant for the society as a whole is the repeated finding that large groups practising the TM-Sidhi Yogic Flying Programme in one place reduce negative trends and promote positive trends in the city, state, nation, and even world, depending on the size of the group. This effect, known in the scientific literature as the Maharishi Effect, has been measured by reduction of crime, accidents, and sickness, and improvement of economic trends and quality of life. Studies have consistently shown that this systematic and scientific programme is uniquely effective in reducing tension and turmoil in society, and generating an influence of peace, even in areas of acute conflict.
The practical implications of Professor Nader's discovery thus extend from individual health to world peace, offering the real possibility for every individual and society to achieve perfect health and live in harmony with Natural Law.
