The Project – Progress to Date
Maharishi gave to the world a technology that enables a tiny proportion of the population to create a peaceful, coherent influence reliably reducing crime, sickness and accident rates.


The Global Peace Initiative is not a theoretical idea; it is already underway. Its completion requires the construction of a campus to house the 9,000 peace experts and an endowment fund for their on-going support. Current facilities and Pandits around India:

  • Construction of 5 Brahmananda Saraswati Nagars
  • Prayag Raj 500 Pandits (3 new large buildings)
  • Ayodhya 200 Pandits
  • Vishwanath Charyali 200 Pandits
  • Omkareshwar 200 Pandits
  • Bhopal 150 Pandits
  • Ghushmeshwar land is bought
  • Brahmasthan development and constant focus on maintenance.
  • Additional major housing for 500 Pandits (large donors and from countries)
  • Bijauri guest campus buildings and the Raja Campus
