The world is currently facing increasing violence, terrorism, and corruption. Drug and alcohol problems are everywhere. Politicians try to bring about transformation of human behavior through laws, but to no avail. Modern science continues to prove the powerful effect of meditation on human behavior. Meditation really works! It transforms behavior of an individual. Individuals make a family, families make a society, societies make a nation, and nations make a world. Thus, individuals are the world. When individuals change, the world changes. There is no other way to build a noble world.
Just as the state of deep sleep, where we refresh ourselves every night, lies beyond our waking and dream states, so also the meditation state lies just next to the deep sleep state. If the deep sleep can be so refreshing, imagine how much refreshing your meditation state would be. Regardless of nationality, race, religion, and gender, one can easily experience one’s own meditation state.
In meditation state, you are a pure consciousness where there is no division, no class, no religion. So anybody, whether a Hindu or a Christian or a Jew or a Mohammedan, can practice meditation. The world can come to a harmony if meditation is practiced everywhere around the world.
Fundamentally, building a peaceful world begins with our own selves. Before changing the world, we must first discover peace within ourselves. You may ask, What can a single individual do for world peace? Here is a short story that answers this question. A wise man was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When he came to each starfish, he would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. He had been doing this for some time when an old man approached him and asked, “Why are you doing this? Look at this beach! There must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I’m afraid you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.” The wise man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, threw it back into the ocean, and replied, “Well, I made a difference to that one!”
If we find peace within ourselves through meditation, our life will be transformed. So let us begin with our own transformation.

World renowned Swami Rama Tirtha (1873 –1906), who was a brilliant Professor of Mathematics, predicted prosperity for the Indian subcontinent by explaining cycles of time called "Law of Periodicity. More than a century ago, he wrote: “Everything in this world moves rhythmically, and the Law of Periodicity governs all phenomena. Nature shows that the sun moves from east to west, coming back to the east to begin a new cycle." In accordance with this law, financial prosperity has been moving in the past 5000 years from the peak of civilization in India. Rama Tirtha predicted: “After Japan, China will rise and gain prosperity and strength. After China, the sun of prosperity and learning will again smile at India."
The peak of economic and cultural growth in India was witnessed during the Indus Valley civilization, which flourished 4500 years ago. Although South Asia is the most poverty stricken region of the world today, it holds tremendous potential for transformation and development. SAARC (South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation) was formed in 1985 to promote the economic welfare of this region but has not proved to be very effective.
Just as the European Community developed into the European Union (EU) in 1993, so also SAARC could develop into an “Indus Union.” The formation of regional unions based on the EU model is the best way to bring about radical and positive change in the entire region. It is time to unify the economies of India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, the Maldives, Myanmar, and others that were once an integral part of India into an “Indus Union.”
