United States Natural Law Party

The United States Natural Law Party is a United States political party affiliated with the international Natural Law Party. It is closely associated with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, leader of Transcendental Meditation, a belief which holds the view that natural law is the supreme organizing priniciple that governs the universe. Adherents believe that all political problems can be solved through meditation.

The U.S. version of the Natural Law Party has run John Hagelin as its presidential candidate in 1992, 1996, and 2000. Following the Natural Law Party's failed attempt at a hostile takeover of the Reform Party in 2000, very few members renewed in 2001. By 2003, the Natural Law Party had so waned that it endorsed Dennis Kucinich, a Democrat, for President, rather than try to achieve ballot status for a candidate of its own.
