Prime Minister recounts highlights of
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam's visit
to the United States
(30 May 2009) The historic visit of Maharaja
Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, to
the United States last month expressed his deep appreciation for the
Maharishi Vedic Pandits and other peace-creating experts participating
in the Invincible America Assembly in Maharishi Vedic City and
Fairfield, Iowa—and also for everyone who helped make the Paul McCartney
benefit concert* in New York City that same weekend such a tremendous
Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace,
recounted highlights of Maharaja's visit at a meeting in New York on 5
April, in the presence of Maharaja, Rajas, Raj Rajeshwaris, many other
leaders and generous well-wishers of the Global Country, and Teachers of
the Transcendental Meditation Programme. The meeting was held at the
Global Financial Capital of New York at 70 Broad Street.
Upon his arrival in Maharishi Vedic City, Maharaja went to his Capital
in America, where he received a beautiful and grand welcome by 100
members of the Maharishi Purusha Programme, as well as a group of Vedic
Pandits, who performed a traditional ceremony in honour of his arrival.
'It was a very beautiful feeling. The whole Capital was just glowing
with that feeling of the Vedic Pandits welcoming Maharaja with the
Purusha,' Dr Morris said.
Maharaja met with Purusha, Dr
Morris said, and 'was very impressed by the powerful glow of silence
that they had. It was very strong—very very impressive power of Purusha
and their self-referral quality of life.'
The following day Maharaja went to Maha Rudrabhishek (peace-creating
performance) at the Vedic Pandit campus in Maharishi Vedic City. He had
lunch with the Vedic Pandits, and then gave a beautiful address about
Veda and Vedic Literature in human physiology, explaining to them why
their traditional Vedic performances create such powerful and beneficial
results, Dr Morris continued.
Maharaja also visited other groups of peace-creating experts whose
collective practice of Yogic Flying is creating a powerful positive
transformation in America and the world. Dr Morris described how, when
he entered the Golden Dome—grand Yogic Flying facility in Fairfield,
Iowa—to address the Invincible America Assembly and Maharishi University
of Management (M.U.M.) community, all 1,200 people gathered there were
meditating. 'The silence was incredible,' Dr Morris said. Maharaja
commented that his words just flowed, drawn out by their deep silence.
Another highlight of his time in Fairfield was a tour of the new Argiro
Student Center at M.U.M.—which was constructed utilizing both Maharishi
Vedic Architecture and advanced green building elements that will
qualify it for LEED certification [Leadership in Energy and
Maharaja then travelled to New York 'to appreciate Dr David Lynch and
Sir Paul McCartney, and all of the artists and all those who are going
to create a new world, through support of Transcendental Meditation and
Yogic Flying groups for all the children in the schools,' Dr Morris
Reflecting on Maharishi's goals for the world
(31 May 2009) The Maharishi Channel recently rebroadcast the address of
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World
Peace, at the Global Financial Capital of New York.
On 5 April 2009, the day following the David Lynch Foundation benefit
concert 'Change Begins Within' at Radio City Music Hall, Maharaja was
addressing a special assembly of leaders and generous well-wishers of
the Global Country in the United States, including many Teachers of the
Transcendental Meditation Programme across the nation connected via
Maharaja's visit to New York City was the second phase of his recent
historic visit to the United States.
At the Global Financial Capital of New York at 70 Broad Street, after
eloquent introductions by Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global
Country of World Peace, and Raja John Hagelin, Raja of Invincible
America, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam addressed the gathering.
He began by referring to the Vedic expression, Yatinam Brahma bhavati
sarathih*, '—which all of us as knowers of the teaching of reality, have
experienced and are giving to the world. That is the secret of
everything that takes place anywhere in the direction of evolution—the
ability of the all-knowingness of Natural Law to be available at every
point in creation, and in harmony and coordination with every other
point, leading to the steps of progress and evolution that allow every
individual to live and experience Totality on the level of consciousness
and on the practical level in their daily living.
'That is why we see any phenomenon of success, and growth, and
evolution, as the action of wholeness, Totality, which in other
expressions might be called the hand of God, or the Almighty hand of
total Natural Law, acting in the field of the relative.
Maharaja reflected on the life and mission of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: his
time spent with his Master, Guru Dev, his years of silence in the
Himalayas, and his impulse to offer to everyone in the world the
precious Vedic wisdom he had gained.
As at M.U.M. several days
earlier, Maharaja explained that, as Maharishi came to the United States
and Canada, and toured the world, he started to wonder how he could make
this knowledge quickly available to everyone, and he decided he would
'multiply himself . . . so he created Transcendental Meditation Teachers
to fulfil his goal'. Originally Maharishi put this goal 'in terms of the
Spiritual Regeneration Movement—to spiritually regenerate the
world—which really means to bring back the understanding that any
action, performance, any result of good activity ultimately is not an
expression of the outer doing, but the expression of the inner reality
of life. That you pull the arrow and then shoot it, you dive deep into
the Self and then go into action; go into Totality, wholeness—Be
Totality, wholeness—and then your action is in tune with total Natural
Law. Every activity of yours then accomplishes the purpose of creation.
. . . That is the spiritual aspect of the reality of life.'
Throughout his address, Maharaja explained in depth the meaning and
significance of spirituality as presented by Maharishi in his teaching.
When Maharishi founded the Spiritual Regeneration Movement, 'we
understood as time went by that the spirituality Maharishi was talking
about is something very practical, systematically applicable, something
very near everyone, and something that doesn't require anyone to
actually leave or change in any way, one's life and one's behaviour from
the surface level. And then we understood that spirituality in its full
value, if we want to look at it from the perspective of today's
understanding, as a scientific reality of life, a scientific aspect of
an offering, in terms of its practical values and its understanding of
'Maharishi went on to bring out many values of the Veda; and then, after
feeling that transcendence was anchored in people's awareness and
priority in his Movement, he started to bring out different aspects of
the Veda, in terms of Sthapatya Veda, Ayur-Veda, and Jyotish—and
different values to help complete the knowledge.'
Maharaja also explained that Maharishi wanted to bring forward quickly
most of the knowledge that is needed, 'and he started to bring out all
other aspects of Veda and Vedic Literature, all other complete aspects
of knowledge—to fulfil his goal of coming to the world and being in the
Maharaja explained that in the last few years, Maharishi was very
focused on going very fast, to implement all of his programmes. 'Then he
left us this Total Knowledge, and it's now for us together to take it to
its full value as he brought it to light; and use that knowledge in its
most complete and perfect way, as he has brought it to light.' Maharishi
said many times, 'My work is done,' Maharaja said.
Today, in this gathering, Maharaja expressed his intention 'to think
together in practical terms to harness all this success that we've seen
in the past two days, and all the success in these 40-50 years Maharishi
has been teaching us—all this perfect knowledge that he gave us, and how
to make it available to everyone in the world.'
Greatness and responsibility of the United States
(1 June 2009) During his
address at the Global Financial Capital of New York, Maharaja Adhiraj
Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, described
his reasons for coming to the United States for his first major public
visit. He reflected on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's appreciation for 'the
greatness of this people and this nation, and its ability to achieve all
that is good and all that is great'—bestowing a special responsibility
on the US to help realize Maharishi's goals of global peace and
The Maharishi Channel recently rebroadcast Maharaja's address from 5
April 2009, the day following the David Lynch Foundation benefit concert
'Change Begins Within' at Radio City Music Hall. He was addressing a
special assembly of leaders and generous well-wishers of the Global
Country in the United States, including Teachers of the Transcendental
Meditation Programme across the nation connected via conference call.
Maharaja explained why he chose to come to the United States for his
first public trip. As Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global
Country of Word Peace, noted during a similar assembly a few days
earlier at Maharishi University of Management in Iowa, this was 'the
first great visit of Maharaja anywhere in the world, since Maharishi has
bestowed upon him the full responsibility for the leadership of this
Movement, the bringing of Raam Raj (administration through total Natural
Law) into the world.'
Maharaja commented on the
significance of coming to the United States at the time of the Vedic
celebration of Raam Navami. 'Raam Navami is a great occasion, for what
Raam represents for all of us, as Maharishi has put his Global Country
of World Peace under the symbol of the solar dynasty of Raam, and Raam
as being Brahm, Totality, wholeness. . . . So when it's Raam Navami,
it's great to come to the most creative county of the world.'
He also wanted to give his support to the great endeavours organized by
the administration of Raja Hagelin in New York (the benefit concert for
Transcendental Meditation the previous evening). 'When Raja Hagelin told
me that everyone is coming together for this beautiful event, I felt
that must be the time to come, to share together our thoughts and
planning; and enjoy the celebration of success here in one of greatest
cities of the world—if not the greatest, in terms of today's creativity,
the financial world, the centre of minds and intellects in New York.'
Maharaja also discussed his visit to the United States in terms of
Maharishi's having placed great focus of attention there, to help spread
his knowledge in the world.
'I know how Maharishi appreciated the United States,' Maharaja said,
'certainly because of the ability of the US and its people to do
everything in a big way, in a complete way—in a fabulous way. Even on a
scientific level, just forward, and first: technology, going to the
moon, computers, communications—the United States. Everything you can
see: creating the first Maharishi Vedic City—the United States. Creating
the first Invincibility course—the United States. . . . Over and over
again, we've had the experience of the greatness of this people and this
nation, and its ability to achieve all that is good and all that is
'In this powerful ability to achieve, the United States also has a huge
responsibility. . . . It is because in its greatness, this country is
able, when it focuses on something—even with a little shift, it can go
into a direction which can be very, very scary sometimes. For example,
you want an atomic bomb, the United States can create it. You want a
huge financial crisis . . . .
'And therefore this is truly where Maharishi . . . brings to all the
point values, whatever they are, and no matter how big a point can be,
the sense of Totality and wholeness.'
Uniting the values of spirituality and science
(2 June 2009) During his address at the Global Financial Capital of New
York*, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of
World Peace, elaborated on the scientific, practical nature of the
programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Maharaja explained how Maharishi's
intention, coming out from the Himalayas over 50 years ago, to
spiritually regenerate the world has become a scientific reality of
Continuing his address, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said, 'Heaven is the
absolute reality of pure Being—unshaking, nonchanging, infinite,
unbounded pure existence. So if we come back to the spirituality of the
message of Maharishi, the most spiritual value of any aspect of life is
pure Being, the Self—because that is the most abstract, most
non-relative, non-changing field. That, as we know, is true
'That field Maharishi has brought to light, with Raja Hagelin's great
scientific achievements. . . . [His] great contributions, really working
with Maharishi, to show that the Constitution of the Universe—the
universe is Totality, wholeness on a physical level—from a physical
perspective of understanding, is the Unified Field of Natural Law; and
that the dynamics of the Unified Field, with all these [complex
scientific] terms that Dr Hagelin brings out, are actually the structure
of Natural Law that is available in Veda and Vedic Literature.
'Therefore we know from a scientific level, this contribution of the
understanding that the spiritual value of life—the most abstract value
of life—its own dynamics within it are the dynamics of the so-called
non-spiritual aspect of life, which is the expression of that reality in
the physical world—which is our body, our universe.
'So our physiology—which has always been perceived from the perspective
of spirituality as being of lesser value, which drags us away from
wholeness and spirituality—Maharishi bridged [that] and said, No: even
the physical, in its structure, function, and Constitution is based on
the structure of Natural Law—is an exact replica of Natural Law. It is
itself Natural Law in physical form, it is spirituality.
'The body is pure spirituality, the universe is pure spirituality—and
that is the spiritual regeneration of the world. That spiritual
regeneration of the world becomes a scientific reality for us today.'
creative country in the world
can create Heaven on Earth
(3 June 2009) During his address at the Global
Financial Capital of New York, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler
of the Global Country of World Peace, explored in great depth how the
knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi encompass the full
range of spirituality, from enlivening the most abstract, unbounded
field of pure Being in the physiology to the most objective, practical,
scientific understanding, to create Heaven on Earth.
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam went on to discuss the nature of the Maharishi
Yagya Programme. 'The simple explanation of this that Maharishi has
given is in terms of Natural Law—total Natural Law. The Unified Field
becomes vibration, vibration becomes sound, sound becomes matter, matter
builds up on itself, and becomes the physiology, becomes the universe.'
In the language of modern science, a Yagya is a procedure that can be
understood on the level of physical sound vibrations. Maharaja said that
when a Maharishi Yagya is performed (by Maharishi Vedic Pandits in
India), the performance is simply on the level of sound. The recitation
of specific sounds takes place in a very specific way—sounds that
enhance certain levels of Natural Law—that nourish, strengthen, and
awaken those qualities of Natural Law so as to remove any obstacles or
negativity that may have arisen.
'Therefore it is totally on the level of sound, of vibration, of direct
action that produces direct results. It is not something happening
between one person or another, between one entity or another—it is all
happening in one field, one unbounded pure field of Being—that is why it
can have effects beyond space and time,' and create specific effects.
Maharaja also explained that there are different ways of approaching
spiritual growth, enlightenment—though the senses, the mind, the
intellect, the emotions, the ego. But one of the great benefits of
Maharishi's knowledge and programmes is that when one transcends**, one
enlivens all those levels simultaneously.
Maharaja then considered the infinite and finite aspects of
existence—the Absolute and relative—and how these two aspects were
revealed in their completeness and unified by Maharishi in his
teachings. 'What Maharishi did in his spiritual regeneration is two
things,' Maharaja said. 'One, of course, is to give importance to the
Absolute value, the spirituality that was missing in the world; and, by
its being missed, could take the world into directions that are
dangerous—poking into aspects of Natural Law that are very powerful, but
if mishandled can create catastrophes. Therefore infuse wholeness in the
'But he also took that relative from the level of whatever it
understands in terms of science, knowledge of the physical world, of
physiology, chemistry, and physics, and said: Look, spirituality itself
is also scientific. Spirituality itself can be understood by a rational
person, a reasonable person, a logical person. You don't have to just
believe in it. . . .
'So spiritual regeneration means to regenerate spirituality, as well as
to bring spirituality to the physical aspect. By regenerating
spirituality, this means that Maharishi has called upon these great
minds of the world: You great scientists, great thinkers, great rational
people, achievers and creative people—come and examine my spirituality.
That's how the United States again came forward—with Dr Keith Wallace,
whom we like to honour as the first scientist who did the first research
in this country—to say: Yes, spirituality is something we can fathom, we
can understand as something that has an actual physical counterpart.
Raja Hagelin says, spirituality is the Unified Field, it has a
structure, it has a logic, it's a reasonable thing—it's not something
you have to just believe in.
'So this is where the bridge has come: from total unmanifest, abstract,
far in the Himalayas, to most objective, practical—and then we put them
together, and what we have is Heaven on Earth. Heaven on Earth: not
heaven somewhere and earth somewhere [else]. . . .
'When we come to the US—particularly on this occasion that is most
spiritual to us, Raam Navami, and the celebration of spirituality in the
most exalted physical aspect of its expressions, in the senses,
feelings, and togetherness in this great achievement, this concert. . .
. It is so beautiful, so fulfilling, such a joy, and I have no doubt
whatsoever that the most creative country in the world, with the most
complete knowledge of infinity, spirituality, the Absolute, heaven, and
earth, together will create the fulfilment of Maharishi's goal. And when
he said, "I feel my work is done," really we can say, "Yes, your work is
done," and here we offer back to you what you've given to us.'
