Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam:
Global Guru Purnima Celebration, 7 July 2009
(9 July 2009) Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global
Country of World Peace, founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, began his
address to the annual
global celebration of Guru Purnima Day, 7 July 2009, with two beautiful
'Saha nav avatu
Saha nau bhunaktu
Saha viryam karavavahai
Tejaswi nav adhitam astu
'Let us be together,
Let us eat together,
Let us be vital together,
Let us be radiating truth, radiating the light of life.
Never shall we denounce anyone, never entertain negativity.'
—and Vasudhaiva kutumbakam: 'The world is my family.'
Speaking at the international Capital of the Global Country of World
Peace in MERU, Holland, and connected via Internet broadcast with
similar celebrations around the world, Maharaja referred to the Vedic
recitations performed earlier in the celebration by Maharishi Vedic
Pandits at the Brahma-Sthan (auspicious central point) of India; and to
videotapes of Maharishi's historic Guru Purnima addresses from past
years, which the global Guru Purnima Assembly in MERU had been enjoying
every day since 4 July.
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said
that the Assembly was so blessed to be able to listen and bask in the
sounds of the Vedic Laws of Nature—the expression of total Natural Law.
Awakening those sounds in our awareness and performing Puja to Guru Dev*
with Maharishi, he said, 'we feel very blessed today to offer back to
Maharishi all that he has given us, as he did to Guru Dev, so that
eternally, on every Guru Purnima, represented by all his family—which is
the world as a whole, which is total Natural Law—he can eternally offer
back again and again to the Self, to total Brahman
Consciousness, to total Brahmi Chetana, to total Being, the perfect
realization of total Natural Law, its own expressions in life.'
Maharaja said that every Guru Purnima brings 'a flavour of a quality'—as
the Assembly had been appreciating in Maharishi's historic addresses. He
said that sometimes we have seen Maharishi offer Heaven on Earth to Guru
Dev on Guru Purnima. At other times he offered invincibility; other
times, enlightenment. 'This Guru Purnima also brings to us some very
special flavours on the level of pure feeling that is emanating from the
natural reality of time, and the natural requirement of time,' Maharaja
Maharaja thanked the leaders of
the Global Mother Divine Organization who carefully selected the
videotapes of Maharishi's addresses, 'which gave the quality of Saha nav
avatu, Saha nau bhunaktu as the feeling of this Guru Purnima, and
Vasudhaiva kutumbakam from Maharishi as the reality of what we are
living, and what we want the whole world to be able to live.'
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said that 'on the level of achievements,
however small they are, we feel quite fulfilled. We feel that really we
are giving justice to Maharishi's teachings, to Maharishi's guidance—and
for that we have to recognize the great achievements of our Ministers
(of the Global Country of World Peace), with their leadership in the
Prime Minister (Dr Bevan Morris), who have maintained the perfection of
knowledge, the purity of the teaching.' They have faced tremendous
requirements and have been able to deal with them, Maharaja said, and
together with the Global Council of Rajas, to 'maintain the line of
thought, the line of action, the line of achievement and fulfilment in
the purity of Maharishi's guidance and the purity of Maharishi's
He lauded the Prime Minister and all the Ministers, who have maintained
'great levels of organization, administration, and preparation; of
guidance and of leadership towards maintaining perfection of action, to
whatever extent the time and the conditions and circumstances allow. We
offer to Maharishi the achievements of Prime Minister and all his
Maharaja highly commended his
Rajas of the Global Country of World Peace, who 'have been absolutely
focussed under Maharishi's guidance and direction; their achievements
have also been tremendous. It is really the beginning of unheard, untold
achievements as we have started to see represented by our great
''ringleader of the Rajas'', Raja John Hagelin, and his presentation;
his progress and his leadership have been really exemplary, leading to
our Guru Purnima today.'
Maharaja said that the global Guru Purnima Assembly had recognized the
achievements of the great leaders, in particular Raja Jose Luis Alvarez,
Raja of Latin America, and Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of Invincible
Great Britain, both of whom 'I would like to recognize very specially as
exemplary, and as examples of what all the Rajas have been doing.
'We are really on the level of great fulfilment from the practical
level,' he continued, 'and we have in India a great leadership'—Dr
Girish Varmaji, Dr Prakash Srivastava, and Dr Anand Srivastava—upholding
the Vedic Pandits and the Vedic scholars, 'making sure that they are
prepared properly to
come out to the world and to give the knowledge that Maharishi has
structured for the whole world.'
Maharaja also praised the many leaders and organizers in MERU, and those
who maintain the connection between India and the whole world—especially
noting the contributions of Dr Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and
Planning; Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of Invincible India; Raja Steven
Rubin, Raja of Invincible China; and Dr Girish Momaya—who are also
offering achievements today to Maharishi, so that they can be
continuously offered to Guru Dev.
Knowledge, the gift of the spiritual teacher -
'Know Thy Self'
(10 July 2009) Having
expressed his great appreciation for all the leaders and administrators
of his global administration, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of
the Global Country of World Peace, continued his address on 7 July
2009—reflecting on the occasion of Guru Purnima, the annual Vedic
celebration of the spiritual teacher, traditionally held on the full
moon in July.
Maharaja said that he would reflect on the gift of Maharishi Mahesh
Yogi, the gift of Guru Dev: 'As we offer his gift back to him, we
reflect on his gift to us.
'What is Guru? What does the Guru give? Guru gives Total Knowledge to
remove ignorance, to remove darkness,' Maharaja said. 'He is the
embodiment of Total Knowledge and he wants to give Total Knowledge. This
knowledge has been so often expressed in different ways: enlightenment,
Heaven on Earth, invincibility, bliss consciousness, the fruit of all
knowledge in one brain, perfect health. All of these terms that are
expressions of Total Knowledge from different angles, are in fact
synonymous. They really ultimately mean the same thing, because bliss
and perfection have to go together.'
He explained that if there is no true perfection in life, there is no
fulfilment, and therefore no basis for being totally blissful—'not happy
and joy only, but the true meaning of bliss—Sat, Chit, Ananda, Truth,
consciousness, and bliss—the Ananda that is the essence of life.
'In that way we can see the gift of the Guru, from so many different
angles. But Guru gives Total Knowledge. What is Total Knowledge?
Knowledge of what?'
Maharaja explained that when we look into the Veda, which is Total
Knowledge, we see that it has so many expressions, values, and finite
expressions of its own reality. So we can say, 'Should we know all the
Veda? Should we read all the Veda? Should we study all the Veda?' That
has been the tradition for so many years in the Vedic Tradition itself,
that the daily study of the Veda is a very important aspect for
'Maharishi has simplified
this,' Maharaja said, 'by saying that all the branches of the Veda are
embodied in Rk Veda. Rk Veda has ten Mandalas [chapters]; each Mandala
corresponds to one aspect of total reality. The first Mandala is
Prakriti [Nature], and the following eight Mandalas are the divided form
of Prakriti—Prithivi, earth; Jal, water; Tejas, fire, [all the five
elements]; and then mind, intellect, ego, and then the tenth Mandala is
Para prakriti [transcendental, unmanifest], the wholeness of Purusha
[infinite silence, transcendence].
'From this Maharishi explained how the first and tenth Mandalas are
related together and how ultimately all the Mandalas are present in the
first Sukta [verse of Rk Veda], and how all the aspects of the first
Sukta are present in the first syllable of the Veda, which is A.
'In A is Total Knowledge,'
Maharaja continued. 'Therefore the totality of knowledge that the Guru
offers is available to us in one sound A, which represents by itself
'And when we say Ahar ahah sandhyam upasita—which means devote yourself
to the connecting point, to the Sandhya, Vedo nityam adhiyatam—
Adhiyatam then is not seen just as study, because the term Adhiyatam, in
Sanskrit, means to study. But where is Maharishi's point in attention,
in contribution to Total Knowledge? He saw Adhiyatam as A-dhiyatam, A-dhi—A
and Dhi. Dhi is the intellect and A is Totality—so truly the teaching
is: ''Take the intellect to wholeness. Take the intellect to Totality.''
That is the study of the Veda.'
Maharaja said that he was highlighting this one point because of its
importance in recognizing Maharishi's contribution—one of the many
contributions, but the main contribution to the revival of knowledge.
Maharaja explained that there are so many aspects of the Vedic tradition
that are embodied in so many branches of the Veda, from Ayur-Veda,
Jyotish, etc. He said that 'there are so many interpretations of Veda;
there are so many angles of perceiving Veda, that the attention on
transcending as the source of all knowledge has been missed in the
interpretations and in the tradition.
'Maharishi brings to light that one powerful and important point, which
is to go back to the Self and from that reality gain Total Knowledge.
'So when the Guru gives Total
Knowledge, total Veda, he gives Total Knowledge by allowing every
individual to realize their own reality as being Total Knowledge.
'So the summary of all knowledge ultimately is ''Know Thy Self,'' '
Maharaja said. ' ''Know Thy Self'' is what is needed to acquire Total
Knowledge, and in knowing one's Self, one knows everything. This ''Know
Thy Self'' has been for all times expressed in modern philosophy, in
modern understanding, by all sages around the world, even in the
traditions that are in the West. In Western traditions and Eastern
traditions this has been a great guidance for philosophers and sages of
'What Maharishi brought to light is what the Self is, and the Self
therefore, he showed to us, is not what we believe to be in the body
alone; what we believe to be in the senses, in the mind, in the
intellect, in the ego; but ultimately is the Self of everything and
everyone—the Unified Field of Natural Law.
'So what Maharishi brought to light is what the Self is. He also brought
to light how to know your Self.'
How to 'Know
(13 July 2009)
Continuing his address to the Global Celebration of Guru Purnima Day on
7 July 2009 in MERU, Holland, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of
the Global Country of World Peace, explained the stages of development
in the unfoldment of the Self in the higher states of consciousness
described by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in his Vedic Science: Transcendental
Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity
Having reflected on the 'gift of the Guru'—Total Knowledge, 'Know
Thyself'—Maharaja went on to explain how to know oneself. He said that
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi brought out the technology that allows the
individual to transcend, and from the Transcendent know the Self. He
explained that all the senses, drawn inwards, go through the mind, the
intellect, the ego and the Self, 'and then find the true total Reality
of what the Self is, in a very simple, most efficient, most practical
way to achieve the goal of ''Know Thyself''—as Maharishi has taught us,
and as we have been practising throughout
these years, and we are teaching to the world.'
Maharaja said that in Maharishi we have a revival of Total Knowledge.
'We have Total Knowledge available in the experience of the Self, and
Maharishi has shown us how this experience progresses first from
transcending, going through these steps: first the ego realizes it is
the Self, and that is Transcendental Consciousness.
'Then as we become familiar with transcending, with Transcendental
Consciousness,' he continued, 'that gets established on the level of
Cosmic Consciousness, where the intellect realizes that there are two
realities. It realizes its own reality of being the Self, because it has
transcended and repeatedly transcended.
'Usually the experience has been in the outer, dynamic, changing field.
Now the experience is established in the inner field of pure Being, and
therefore the intellect recognizes that there is a reality which is also
myself. When that gets established in a permanent way on the fine level
of intellectual activity, there is a recognition of my Self and the
dynamic, outside, changing field—and that we say is the level of Cosmic
Maharaja explained that the
intellect then goes through further refinement and starts to acknowledge
that the outer field is also subtle; it is also coherent, is also
intelligible; it is also part of Natural Law. 'It is part of a design,'
he said, 'part of a wholeness. Therefore [the intellect] becomes more
and more attracted to it; and Maharishi says, on the fine feeling level,
the finest level of the intellect, the outer values of life get adopted,
get taken in as something very glorious—and that is God Consciousness,
the realization of the Creator in his creation.'
In that reality there is a
further step of understanding of our nature and the nature of the outer
world, Maharaja explained: as God Consciousness gets totally glorified,
totally achieved, and even transcended in terms of the outer field—then
comes Unity Consciousness. 'Unity Consciousness is that reality where
the outer expressions, the dynamic changing field, are recognized as the
silent reality, the silent field, the silent Self—and therefore dynamism
and silence become experienced as one reality—outer and inner as one
'That is the achievement of the finest level of intellect and ego,
merging every other expression in the outer field with the inner reality
of Unity Consciousness,' Maharaja said.
Maharaja said that in this Guru Purnima a very special value has been
brought to light by Maharishi—that is the reality of Brahmi Chetana,
Brahman Consciousness (the highest state of human development), the
experience of Totality.
everything as Totality
(14 July 2009)
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World
Peace, explains the reality of Brahmi Chetana—Brahman Consciousness—
from the perspective of Maharishi's Vedic Science. Maharaja brings out
Maharishi's description of this highest level of human development in
terms of silence and dynamism 'zooming forth' into the senses and the
objects of the senses, and everything being unified through the
mechanics of feeling.
Continuing his address to the Global Celebration of Guru Purnima on 7
July 2009, in MERU, Holland, Maharaja posed the question: Where can we
locate Brahmi Chetana, and how is it possible to understand it from the
perspective of the intellect, the ego, the senses, and the Self?
In Unity Consciousness, he said, dynamism and silence are unified, are
one reality. How can we have something more than acknowledging that all
aspects of dynamism are truly being lived on the basis of perfect
silence; and that silence and dynamism are one and the same reality?
Maharaja went on to explain that the intellect has reached its fullest
value of development in Unity Consciousness; it has become fully
blossomed, fully awake to its nature. Even its discriminating power,
which separates in its nature, has surrendered to the reality of the
existence of the opposite
Maharaja referred to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's explanation of Brahmi
Chetana as expressed in one of the Brahma Sutra [an aspect of the Vedic
Literature]: Tat tu samanvayat—the value of summation, of putting
together, of unification. That value of summation, of unification, is
the value that allows the individual to see Unity in all aspects of
dynamism, even as they are separate from each other.
'So there is the perception, the reality, the acceptance of the value of
expressions of Natural Law, but acknowledging them all together at the
same time as being unified value,' Maharaja said.
He then asked, where does this
ultimately come from, in terms of one's development, one's personality?
Is it in the senses? Is it in the mind, in the intellect, in the ego? In
fact it is in all of these together, he said
Maharaja said that the inward stroke [transcending, discussed in the
previous article] that took us from the outer expression to realize the
inner life—'takes an outer stroke, and that outer stroke takes us
through ego, intellect, mind, and senses, as if the pure Being zooms
forth into existence, and therefore zooms forth in the senses and the
objects of the senses.
'So the inward stroke is complete in transcending,' he continued; it
reaches certain levels of development in Cosmic Consciousness and God
Consciousness, and comes to fulfilment in Unity Consciousness. The outer
stroke finds its fulfilment in the outer senses, he said—'because we
start from the outer to the inner, and in Brahmi Chetana we are really
from the inner zooming into the outer. The outer value therefore gets
totally unified and gets totally perceived with that level of Brahmi
'Therefore,' he said, 'the
flavour of this Guru Purnima comes to us on a very subtle level of
'Feeling does not deny the intellect,' Maharaja said. 'Actually, if you
remember one of the beautiful talks of Maharishi, when he spoke about
finest feeling and finest intellect—he said that finest intellect is
finest feeling. So a person who is very deeply refined in their feeling,
also has a very sharp intellect and decision-making, and the ability to
'Feeling doesn't separate us from the senses; the senses are actually
integrated in feeling,' Maharaja continued. 'Even in English, when you
say you can feel something by a touch, or you can feel it inside
yourself—what is the difference between the perception, the vision, the
hearing, the senses, and the feeling? The difference is that a feeling
is something that integrates.
'When you feel something, it takes into consideration all the
expressions of the senses, all the expressions of the mind wandering
around; all the intellect, fine discrimination; and all the ego, and
unifies them. It puts them together. And what comes out of this ''soup''
is a certain feeling—it can be a feeling of joy, sadness, indifference,
bliss, love . . . . And that feeling level is a level of integration, a
unifying level, a synthesis of all the senses and intellect, ego, and
mind, together experiencing one reality.
'In Brahmi Chetana, the putting together of all these values brings the
experience of wholeness and Totality,' Maharaja said, 'which means any
kind of expression, any kind of reality, when integrated on the level of
senses, mind, intellect, and ego, it comes to a feeling of wholeness, a
feeling of Totality—so that this summation, this Tat tu samanvayat, is
totally matured in its understanding of wholeness and Totality.'
importance of the fine
in the growth of enlightenment
(18 July 2009) In the conclusion of his address to the Global
Celebration of Guru Purnima on 7 July, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First
Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, discussed in depth the
importance of the fine feeling level in the development of Brahmi
Chetana, Brahman Consciousness—the reality of living wholeness or
Totality, the highest level of personal development.
Maharaja said that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi did not speak about feelings
very much because he was creating a reality of science—something we can
understand. He wanted the intellect to be alive and alert. '. . . .
Feeling is truly also a part of this fine level of intellect,' Maharaja
He explained that Maharishi taught very few techniques of action, but
the one that is most fundamental is 'Established in Being, perform
action'— Yogasthah kuru karmani [Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 1, verse 48]. So
'there is always the importance of referring back to the Self, being the
Self, and then any action is automatically right, automatically good,'
Maharishi also said that whatever you put your attention on grows
stronger in your life. This brings to our awareness, Maharaja said, that
what we put our attention on is important to us. 'Maharishi has said
don't damage the feeling—what is the purpose of achieving something on
the surface if you damage the feeling level?'
Maharishi emphasized the importance of protecting and preserving that
level of feeling, which is a preparation for us on the way to Brahmi
Chetana. 'Of course, Brahmi Chetana will evolve from transcending, from
pure Being, from the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, where
truly that interaction between dynamism and silence gets so intimately
refined and intimately connected.
'But as we are going along in our life, it is also very important not to
add damage to that ultimate reality that we want to live in Unity and in
Brahmi Chetana. How can we damage that? When you say non-truth, you are
damaging your relation with Natural Law, because you are acknowledging
in your consciousness, a reality that is non-real, that is non-true,
that is not in accordance with Natural Law.
'So the mistake here, the ''sin'' if you like, the problem, is not that
somebody is going to come and punish you—although Natural Law is
infinitely orderly and every action has its reaction—but the greatest
punishment is inflicted oneself, by damaging one's consciousness in the
reality with truth and non-truth—or in damaging the other's feeling.
'When you damage the other's feeling, what you are
doing is as if the other is different from you, and supporting the
principle in your consciousness of duality, and acknowledging yourself
as something which is different from the outer.'
Maharaja explained that in this
kind of action that is not in accordance with Natural Law, one is
creating harm to that fine level of summation, that fine level of
integration on the feeling level. He said, for example, that the
greatest crime or the greatest action against Natural Law is killing,
because in that situation one destroys Natural Law itself, 'and
therefore creates a great harm in the ability to grow into the field of
Unity and to grow in the field of connectedness and summation and
unification of all differences.
'So Maharishi left us on the path of achieving our field of feeling from
the most pure level of its nourishing value, and that is from the level
of transcending—which is the only security that the feelings truly grow
in a harmonious, natural way. . . .
'There is discrimination, there is order; there is necessity to create
order and structure so the feelings do not become something vague and
sentimental and emotional, but the reality on the level of very
scientific, very discriminative, very alive, and very sharp intellect.'
Maharishi has given us many ways in order to live life in accordance
with Natural Law. When he says that we should study the Veda every day,
because Veda is the law, Veda is the reference—Vedo akhilo Dharma-mulam,
that is the reference of what action should be.
Maharishi has given us Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, Maharishi Ayur-Veda,
and Jyotish; he has given us all the Vedic Pandits, the sounds of the
Veda, Gandharva Veda, and the Yagya programme, so that on every level of
our reality, we are actually studying the Veda.
Maharaja said that when we study the Veda, we listen to the sounds of
the Veda. 'When we live in a house that is built according to Sthapatya
Veda, we are living in a reality that reminds us always of that Unity of
Natural Law, of that Totality of Natural Law that is even in the
building, in the stones, in the structures.
'When we eat something, when we take care of our health through Ayur-Veda,
we are also reminded of the connection between Natural Law and the
physical structure, the mental structure, and the well-being of the
'When we are going through Maharishi Jyotish, we are enlivening that
unifying value, that connectedness between the individual and the
cosmos, [between] the individual reality and the cosmic patterns and
aspects of expressions of Natural Law.
'Like this, on the level of
pure Being,' Maharaja continued, 'from the sounds of the Veda, from the
Yagya process, [there] is always an integrating, unifying,
putting-together process that enlivens the finest level of the feeling
and ultimately helps on the way to ensure that there are no obstacles in
the growth towards Brahmi Chetana.
'So this Guru Purnima, the feeling that it gives me is that feeling of
Unity, that feeling of strength in Unity, that feeling of protection of
the finest level of the pure expressions of the intellect; and the
refinement of its reality as the most discriminating value becoming and
experiencing itself ultimately as the most unifying value in true
Maharaja reminded everyone that the technique is transcending.
'Transcending is the way to refine the feeling'; he said, 'but on the
subtle level, understanding the processes, understanding what leads to
enlightenment is a very important thing to achieve the goal with the
least amount of obstacles on the way.'
He concluded his address by reading from Maharishi's book Love and God:
'Love unifies the scattered ends of life and brings them all together
into an integrated whole. Love is the symbol of life. Lack of love
denotes lack of life content and the show of love without genuine love
is a shame to life.'
'This is Tat tu samanvayat, Brahmi Chetana, on the level of pure
feeling,' he said. 'It is the ultimate love where all is accepted, all
is undersood, all is embraced, all is unified, and all is love.'
Maharaja then repeated the opening words of his address, the Vedic
'Saha nav avatu
Saha nau bhunaktu
Saha viryam karavavahai
Tejaswi nav adhitam astu
['Let us be together, let us eat together, let us be vital together; let
us be radiating truth, radiating the light of life. Never shall we
denounce anyone, never entertain negativity.' ]
'Jai Guru Dev.'
Global Country of
celebrates Guru Purnima Day
(7 July 2009) The Global
Country of World Peace held its grand global celebration of the full
moon day of Guru Purnima on 7 July 2009. This very special day-long
celebration took place at the International Capital of the Global
Country in MERU, Holland and at the Global Capital of World Peace in the
Brahma-Sthan (geographical centre) of India. In addition, celebrations
were held in countries around the world, connected to and enjoying the
live global Internet broadcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3.
The celebration of Guru Purnima Day is the highlight of the global Guru
Purnima Assembly in progress in MERU, Holland since 4 July.
Guru Purnima is the day in the Vedic Calendar—traditionally celebrated
on the full moon in July—that is dedicated to honouring the Masters of
the eternal Vedic Tradition of knowledge, who throughout time have
upheld the supreme wisdom of life. In this generation this wisdom has
been brought to the world through the knowledge and programmes of the
Vedic Science of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, through the blessings of his
Master, Shri Guru Dev*—to bring enlightenment to every individual and
invincibility to every nation.
Tuesday's celebration began at the auspicious time of 9:10 a.m. Central
Europe Time (CET) with the Rashtriya Geet (anthem of the Global Country
of World Peace), followed by global Puja (Vedic ceremony of gratitude)
and a videotape of Maharishi's Guru Purnima address from 29 July 2007.
In that historic address, Maharishi described the principle of ideal
governing in the Global Country of World Peace:
'Yatha raja tatha praja—as is the ruler, so is the ruled subject. Yatha
raja tatha praja. This is the ideal of Raja in the Vedic Tradition of
rulership—Yatha raja tatha praja—one administrator, one administrator
maintains himself in whatever way, on whatever level of performance, on
whatever level of reality, that is the quality of the subject. Yatha
raja tatha praja has been the expression of the Vedic Tradition of
Other highlights of the celebration included traditional Vedic
recitations by Maharishi Vedic Pandits in the Brahma-Sthan of India and
in MERU, Holland; and a beautiful address by Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam,
First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace. The first session
concluded with raising the Flag of the Global Country in MERU and around
The afternoon and evening sessions in Holland featured greetings and
reports from Rajas, Raj Rajeshwaris, and global Ministers of the Global
Country, as well as another videotape of a historic address by
Maharishi. Among leaders of the Global Country who addressed the
celebration were Dr Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and Planning;
Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of India; and Dr Girish Varma, National
Director of India, and Director-General of the Global Capital of World
Capital of Peace at the Brahma-Sthan of India.
