PAKISTAN: Transcendental Meditation at Norwich University – The Lahore Times

Posted on May 14th, 2016

PAKISTAN: An article in The Lahore Times reports: “Major General (Ret.) Stephen Rippe, a member of the NU board of trustees, says, “[TM practice] is part of an overall healthy lifestyle. You work out, you take care of your body, you do Transcendental Meditation, it helps you take care of your mind. The powerful part of that is that it actually, physiologically improves your brain functioning.” This article features a short online DLFTV video “Transcendental Meditation at Norwich University” describing the successful implantation of the TM program at this oldest private military college in the United States.

Dr. Leffler’s Letter Published in New York City, South Korea & Nigeria

Posted on May 14th, 2016

If readers have been following the world news lately, that there have been some terrible things going on in high-stressed places such as Nigeria, Iraq, Pakistan and tensions are running high in South Korea as well. These publications listed below are very concerned about the grave dangers they are facing, and they are now open to the great potential that Invincible Defense Technology (IDT) provides to quickly save many lives and prevent great suffering, at nominal cost. Perhaps this explains why they opted to publish Dr. David Leffler’s query letter in lieu of waiting for the actual article that he proposed to send them in the future.

As a nine-year US military veteran Dr. Leffler especially appreciated the version published in South Korea, where they added a picture of the world famous general Sun Tzu (孫子 or 孫武: BC545-BC470).

Here is a list of the IDT “eager beavers” to date that have published the query letter without waiting for the actual article:

NIGERIA: Dr. David Leffler (11 May 2016). Dr. Leffler Writes Masterweb On How Ukraine & US IDT Developments Affect Armed Forces Worldwide. Masterweb.

NEW YORK CITY: Dr. David Leffler (9 May 2016). Invincible Defense Technology – Military Use In Ukraine And Elsewhere. ValueWalk.

SOUTH KOREA: Dr. David Leffler (9 May 2016). How Ukraine & US IDT Developments Affect Armed Forces Worldwide including S. Korea. The Seoul Times.

In Dr. Leffler’s query letter readers will notice that he referenced an excellent article about Norwich University written by the David Lynch Foundation. Due to my query letter, The Lahore Times in Pakistan published this article and included two online videos from DLFTV:

These two short videos documenting IDT developments regarding the military of Ukraine and at Norwich University are powerful. Dr. Leffler hopes readers will watch them carefully soon.

A Simple Proven Way to End ALL Terrorism

By Dr. David Leffler

Shortly afte the Paris terrorist attacks a full-page announcement in the International New York Times (formerly the International Herald Tribune) showcased a scientifically validated, nonviolent means of defense known in military circles as Invincible Defense Technology (IDT). Extensive scientific research indicates that this approach, if properly applied, can prevent terrorism and conflict and can create peace in society. This announcement, together with follow-up interviews in The Huffington Post and on HuffPost Live TV, worldwide drew more than 13,000 supportive letters and responses.

The IDT field-tested approach is already part of the training of Brazil’s Elite Police force, and has been field-tested by other militaries. It has been validated by 23 peer-reviewed studies carried out in the Middle East, Africa, Southeast Asia, and Latin America. Independent scientists and scholars endorse it, based on its track record and the 25 years of ongoing research confirming its effectiveness.

Although some EU leaders have expressed interest in this approach, unfortunately no concrete action on their part has been taken, as evidenced by the Brussels attacks. Obviously, current anti-terrorism approaches are not working and may actually inspire even more terrorism. Here is a way to prevent terrorism by deploying a simple, proven, advanced human resource-based military technology, with minimal costs and training needed to implement it. For most countries it would cost less than one modern fighter jet. How does it work and how is it applied?

IDT Reduces Societal Stress

As a specially trained military unit, an “IDT Prevention Wing of the Military” uses IDT to neutralize the buildup of stress in the national collective consciousness that ultimately fuels terrorism, war and crime. As collective stress and frustration subside, government leaders and citizens alike are more capable of finding orderly and constructive solutions to the issues that have separated them for generations.

Experience with IDT in highly stressed areas of the globe have demonstrated increased economic incentives and growth of prosperity. Individual creativity and entrepreneurship increase as well. With greater civic calm, citizens’ aspirations rise and a more productive and balanced society emerges. Such a society naturally disallows violence as a means for change, or as an expression of discontent. With this, the ground for terrorism is eliminated. Moreover, this positive change in social trends takes place within a few days or weeks after IDT is introduced. The changes are measurable from such statistics as reduced terrorism, crime rates, accidents, hospital admissions, infant mortality, etc.

The IDT warrior’s daily routine includes the non-religious practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique and its advanced TM-Sidhi program. Military personnel, functioning as a societal coherence-creating military unit, practice these techniques together in a group twice a day, seven days a week, preferably near the targeted population in a secure location. Their presence need not be disclosed to achieve the effect of conflict resolution and violence reduction.

Such coherence-creating groups have achieved positive benefits to society, as shown experimentally, in just 48 hours. Modern statistical methods demonstrate a consistent causal influence of the IDT group on reducing conflict – an effect that precludes chance or coincidence. The IDT approach has been used during wartime, resulting in reduction of fighting, reduced war deaths and casualties, and improved progress toward resolving the conflict through peaceful means. Its coherence-creating effect has also been documented on a global scale in a study published in the Journal of Offender Rehabilitation. When large assemblies of civilian IDT experts gathered during the years 1983-1985, terrorism-related casualties decreased 72%, international conflict decreased 32%, and overall violence was reduced in nations without intrusion by other governments.

A civilian IDT group in Israel decreased the intensity of war in Lebanon in 1983 in a dramatic way in 48 hours, to name only one of 50 successful demonstrations. (See a summary of the study, published in the Journal of Conflict Resolution and summaries of follow-up studies in the Journal of Social Behavior and Personality and the Journal of Scientific Exploration).


Typical Military Model
Obsolete means of defense: the military fails to address social stress responsible for terrorism
Invincible Military Model
Invincible Defense Technology addresses social stress, thereby ending terrorism, violence and war.

IDT is totally unlike any other defense technology in that it does not use violence in an attempt to quell violence. Not only is this a more civilized approach, but also the IDT defense technology supersedes all other known defense technologies (which are based on electronic, chemical, and/or nuclear forces). Therefore, militaries that deploy it gain the ultimate strategic advantage. And it has the added advantage of being extremely cost-effective, requiring minimal time and training to utilize.

If EU leaders establish Prevention Wings of the Military, they will ease the current high tensions, reverse centuries of mistrust and hatred, and permanently prevent future unrest. These IDT units will create genuine and lasting reconciliation and friendship where there was once only hatred and conflict. The powerful IDT human-resource-based defense technology disallows negative trends and prevents enemies from arising. No enemies means no terrorism and full security, as well as a normal, happy, productive life for everyone.

By eliminating terrorism and ending decades-old cycles of violence, IDT units will create lasting peace and prosperity. Their powerful demonstration of this nonviolent peace technology will gain worldwide attention. They will be honored and respected as great warriors who served honorably in their militaries for the betterment of all humanity.

Extensive scientific research objectively shows that this approach works. Recent events show that it is desperately needed. There is truly no other solution.

EU leaders must act now, before high social tensions inevitably explode again.
