Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam addresses
 global Victory Day celebration, 28 September 2009: 'Victory over ignorance, non-truth, boundaries'

Shri Raam Victory


(28 September 2009) During the global celebration of Victory Day on 28 September 2009, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, gave a beautiful address, speaking on the live webcast from MERU, Holland.

Victory Day, the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashmi in the Vedic Calendar, is one of 12 yearly festivals to be held globally, inspired by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, to declare the invincibility of every nation.

Following the traditional Vedic recitations by Vedic Pandits at the Global Capital of World Peace at the Brahma-Sthan (auspicious geographical centre) of India and in MERU, Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of Invincible India for the Global Country of World Peace, invited Maharaja to give his blessings to the celebration

Raja Harris explained that, in bestowing this title on Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, Maharishi was aligning Maharaja and his administration with the eternal administration of the universe, and also was honouring and expressing his trust in Maharaja.


Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam began by explaining that victory over darkness, victory over ignorance, victory over non-truth, victory over boundaries, is a reality that is being celebrated today, and that victory has never been assumed, given, and presented on such a scale in the history of mankind as Maharishi has given to the world today.

'That victory can be celebrated in every moment in one's life,' Maharaja said, 'on the small scale of one's individual reality, and the scales of one's society, one's nation'—but also, he said, as Maharishi's knowledge and programmes are accomplishing throughout the world, 'on the highest scale of the entire world's consciousness, enlivening it in the entire universe.

'When we think of that victory today and we celebrate it, we are really seeing its value beyond even what is bad and what is good. It is beyond the perception of any limited value of understanding.

'The victory is truly a victory of Wholeness over the point—Wholeness accepting the point, being made out of infinite points—and at the same time, enlivening and awakening its own reality in every point. That is why that victory is beyond even the understanding of what is good, or limited good; or what is bad, or limited bad; or big bad, or big good.'

Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam then explained that the supreme values of good and bad, and the desire for the supreme good or bad, are embodied in the Vedic Literature—by Arjuna as the exemplary aspect of the supreme good, in the Bhagavad-Gita; and by Ravana as the supreme level of bad, in the Ramayana.

He explained that the value of the victory in both the Mahabharata* and Ramayana, and the ultimate teaching of the supreme Master or Guru [spiritual teacher] who brings the light from darkness in the Mahabharata and in all of the Vedic Literature, were one and the same in Krishna in the Bhagavad-Gita and in Ram in the Ramayana.

Wholeness, Totality -
'That is the Victory being celebrated today'

 

(29 September 2009) Continuing his address to the celebration of Victory Day, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, explained that in the Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna says something very simple to Arjuna: Nistrai-gunyo bhav Arjuna.* At the end of all of Krishna's teaching in the Bhagavad-Gita, Arjuna says to him, Smritir labdha, 'I have regained my memory.'

Arjuna remembers who he is, he remembers himself; he remembers that he is truly unbounded pure Being, unattached. He is one and the same with those he is fighting in the battle [in the Bhagavad-Gita, between those embodying righteousness and those embodying evil].

Arjuna realizes that there is nothing other than himself, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam explained, and that 'all that is being experienced and being lived is an illusion of some level of perception—the point of view where there is difference: there is good, there is bad; there is transformation, there is evolution, there is growth; there is something that prevents evolution, prevents growth; there is a challenge to evolution, a challenge to growth.

'All of this has to come into place,' Maharaja continued. 'It has to be enacted, it has to be gained, it has to be strengthened from the level of Wholeness into Wholeness, into greater and greater Wholeness—until Totality, absolute unboundedness, is achieved. That is the victory that is being celebrated today.'

Maharaja then explained that in the Ramayana there is the perception of bad: Ravana wants to prevent the Rishis** from performing their Yagyas.*** He sends his representatives into the forest to create noise and disturb the Rishis' performance of action in accordance with Natural Law, 'so he is the non-Natural Law,' Maharaja said.

In the Bhagavad-Gita, 'Arjuna's action is fully in accordance with Natural Law; and here [in the Ramayana] is action fully against Natural Law—to prevent Nature from performing its expansion, to prevent Natural Law from taking its natural course of evolution and growth.'

The value that is full of itself challenging Natural Law [Ravana] is what we call total bad, Maharaja said. 'But ultimately, when Raam removes that ignorance, that side of Ravana, we find that it's also part of total Natural Law. Indeed, when we look deeply in the Ramayana, Ravana had a role to play in order to create a new phase of evolution. . . .'

'Today's victory, therefore, is the victory of truth over non-truth; the victory of enlightenment over ignorance; the victory of unboundedness, infinity, over point values—perception of oneself as being a point, as being a reality that is limited, whether one is acting in good or in bad. And of course, good is better than bad. It helps us on the path of evolution.

'It's not to compare the two or make them equal in any way, but just to take our attention to the enlightenment that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has given to the world. It was so beautifully said by Maharishi, that peace is not an endeavour; it's not a process that one has to struggle with, or fight for, or make a cause of one's life. Peace is something that comes from a simple, natural reality of existence in tune with Natural Law, by enlivening Wholeness in one's life—and then all the other aspects come as part of the natural, normal existence of a human being or a society.'
 

Awakening Totality in individual life
and in the entire world
 

(30 September 2009) Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, continued his beautiful address during the live webcast from MERU, Holland of the global celebration of Victory Day, 28 September 2009.

Illustrating his discourse with examples from the timeless wisdom of the Vedic Literature (in particular the Ramayana and the Bhagavad-Gita), brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, Maharaja had previously explained that one must transcend, go beyond all boundaries and limitations to experience Wholeness—and that was the Victory being celebrated on Victory Day.

He went on to say, 'That victory of Maharishi, victory of Raam [in the Ramayana], victory of Krishna [in the Bhagavad-Gita], victory of the total Vedic Tradition, victory of Guru Dev, is something that Maharishi has given even to the person who first comes to learn Transcendental Meditation.

'They close the eyes, and having been all in boundaries, knowing nothing but boundaries, nothing but my little self—''I am doing, I am the doer, I am this, I am that''—and I is a small I, very small I, very narrow I, very narrow perception. Suddenly the person closes the eyes and finds a total new reality.

'Even . . . starting to transcend, there is an expansion of the sense of the self as being a narrow reality; the sense of the Self as a more enveloping, more enclosing, more integrated, more comprehensive aspect of Natural Law. That already is the victory of today that we are celebrating,' Maharaja said.

'Therefore that victory has been, and is celebrated every moment by everyone who goes back to the Self (through Transcendental Meditation). Go back to the silent, inner, deep pure Self, and then you gain victory over any sense of boundary; any sense of limitation; any sense of isolation, of separation—which are the cause of all fears, all worries and anxieties, and therefore of all action that is not in accordance with Natural Law.' These also, Maharaja said, are 'the basis of one small individual challenging Natural Law, like Ravana [in the Ramayana].

'He is a big individual,' Maharaja said, 'it is a big battle, but he is a big point. It can be a huge point, but still it is a point, limited in its perception. He did all the Tapas [spiritual practice]; he did all the activities, and he gained power, he gained energy. Yet his perception, that I and I and I, which is the small I, has made out of him a problem for the entire evolution of the course of Nature to take itself—and [ultimately] allow Nature to live, to give the chance for everyone to live Heaven on Earth.'

Maharaja pointed out that 'what Maharishi has done, is to truly give that day of Victory to be celebrated every day—every minute in one's life on an individual level. And then, having completed his work, Maharishi has created a structure and a system to allow this to happen on the scale of the entire world: to enliven, to awaken the sense, the reality, the experience, the knowledge of Wholeness, of Totality in every individual life, and on the cosmic level for all generations to come—to truly bring Heaven on to Earth—so that whichever point is available is awake in its sense of Wholeness.

'The beauty of it is as if Wholeness has now multiplied itself in so many millions and billions and infinite numbers of different points—and therefore Wholeness itself is now many Wholenesses,' Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said.

'Of course, it's a way of speech,' Maharaja said, 'a way of presentation, but that's the joy of the Absolute that sees and allows itself; that's the joy of the Creator that wants itself, its Wholeness, to be Wholeness, which is infinite—not only in its unbounded reality, but in its ability to perceive itself, to experience itself in so many infinite numbers of outer ways, into points and points and points. We see Wholeness, Wholeness, Wholeness, and that is the beauty of it.'
 

Awakening Wholeness through
all of Maharishi's programmes

Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, continued to unfold his theme of awakening of Totality in individual life and in the entire world through the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Vedic Science—the supreme values of life which are being enlivened in India and offered to every country in the world.

Maharaja's discourse, using examples from the Mahabharata and the Ramayana in the Vedic Literature, was part of his beautiful address to the global celebration of Victory Day on 28 September 2009.

Both the Mahabharata and the Ramayana, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said, illustrate that the point can suddenly believe itself separate from Wholeness. That, he said, is the story of Maharishi in the world—to bring the awareness back to the true reality, from the ignorance of [incomplete] perception or illusion.

'It's a very tremendous awakening,' Maharaja said, 'and on this great day, it's beautiful to see that Maharishi has given us that structure which is so perfect, where we have the Vedic Pandits in India and different parts of the world, and hopefully soon in every country of the world. [The Vedic Pandits are] blessing the world with that perfect knowledge of life which awakens, from the sound level and from the consciousness level, all Natural Law, the totality of Natural Law, Wholeness, to be lived in the life of every individual.'

Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam honoured 'all the great leadership in India—Raja Harris Kaplan,* Dr Girish Varma, the Raj Rajeshwaris involved in India', and others. He recognized all those in India who are taking care of the Vedic Pandits, the Vaidyas [expert physicians of Maharishi Ayur-Veda], and the Jyotishis [experts in Vedic Astrology, Maharishi Jyotish], and all the different specific aspects of Maharishi's Vedic Science that contribute, from different angles, to enlivening that value of Wholeness.

Maharaja spoke of awakening Wholeness from all these different angles—'be it on the physiological level; be it on removing something that went wrong in the planetary timing and conditions for one individual or the other, for one society or the other—bringing the awareness of the relationship between the individual and Wholeness; bringing the awareness of the individual between the living condition and Maharishi Sthapatya Veda [Vedic Architecture in accord with Natural Law]; and the importance of Wholeness on that level where we are one with the universe and there is an order and structure to the universe.'

Maharaja said that all of these supreme values of life are being enlivened and awakened in India, with the support of all the great leaders there who have been focused on these programmes, and on offering them throughout the world.
 

The perfect structure to understand this supreme knowledge in the most systematic way

(4 October 2009) Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, concluded his address to the global celebration of Victory Day on 28 September 2009.

He continued on his theme, developed further in the previous part, of awakening of Totality in individual life and the entire world through the knowledge and programmes of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Vedic Science—the supreme values of life which are being enlivened in India and offered to every country.

Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam went on to say that this is the perfect structure Maharishi established, to ensure that everyone can understand this supreme knowledge in the most systematic way.

He expressed his 'great joy to acknowledge, thank, and honour our great Raj Rajeshwaris, Rajas, Ministers [of the Global Country of World Peace], and all the Directors and Teachers [of Transcendental Meditation in every country]—who are very alert to make sure that this victory is lived and known by every individual on this planet, and the whole cosmic reality of living daily life, and life as a whole. They are absolutely on top of the world, it's so beautiful.'

The Rajas, Raj Rajeshwaris, and Ministers, Maharaja said, are bringing enlightenment to every field and 'upholding the knowledge to make sure that it is presented to the world in a language that the world understands—in a systematic way, in a complete way, and in the way Maharishi has wanted it, because our experience has been that this is the best way to do it.

'For us, this is the only way to do it. Others might have different perceptions, but we have had that knowledge that has given us fullness on the level of our feeling, on the level of our experience, on the level of our intellect, from a scientific perspective, according to any language—the language of science, the language of philosophy, the language of art, the language of any field of reality.

'Maharishi has enlivened, awakened, and shown the Wholeness of life, the interconnectedness of life from whatever way you like to look at it. He has shown that art is science, that science is spirituality, that Heaven is earth, and that every point is total Wholeness.

'We enjoy that victory and wish it for every individual and every society. We feel infinitely grateful to Maharishi, Guru Dev,* and the Vedic Tradition for this blessing, and commit ourselves again and again to be true to his teaching and to fulfil his desire for the creation of Heaven on Earth.'

Maharaja expressed his gratitude to everyone for participating in the grand celebration of Victory Day, and for 'being together a joyful family that is creating a world full of bliss'.
 

Business institute, national media feature
 Transcendental Meditation
for health and executive performance in Syria


(17 September 2009) Development of total brain functioning through the Transcendental Meditation Technique was the subject of business seminars which took place last month in Syria's major cities—Damascus, Homs, and Aleppo. Titled 'Brain fitness for peak executive performance', the seminars were hosted by a leading business development institution. The seminars were very well received, and will be repeated for young entrepreneurs.

Syria has three active Teachers of the Transcendental Meditation Programme. Syria's first centre for the Transcendental Meditation Programme was inaugurated on 7 July, and since then there has been a great wave of interest in the programme. In addition to articles in magazines and newspapers, the national television recently featured the health benefits* of the Transcendental Meditation Technique for older men, and plans to do two features on Consciousness-Based Education this month.

United Arab Emirates:
Special advanced courses of
Transcendental Meditation Programme
offered first time


(14 September 2009) A team of 10 teachers of Transcendental Meditation has been teaching in the United Arab Emirates for two years, steadily working to bring invincibility to their country and enjoying wonderful progress.

Vedic experts have now arrived and will be teaching Advanced Techniques of Transcendental Meditation for the first time, as well as Maharishi Vedic Vibration Technology, and a Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme Refresher Course. These courses will all be offered in the next couple of weeks in Dubai, for those practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme from all over the Gulf region.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's knowledge has been very enthusiastically received at advanced meetings for those practising the Transcendental Meditation Programme. The Global Mother Divine Organization* has also been bringing great inspiration, holding similar meetings especially for ladies.

The president of one large university, who is very enthusiastic about the Transcendental Meditation Programme, has made it available on an optional basis to all the students and faculty; they are all being encouraged to learn the technique.

Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of the United Arab Emirates for the Global Country of World Peace, recently described these and 'many other wonderful possibilities for invincibility' rising in the country.

Speaking on 12 September,** he explained that every institution established in the United Arab Emirates has to be sponsored by a Sheikh, one of the leaders of society. One Sheikh, who is very enthusiastic about introducing Transcendental Meditation in education, has drafted a proposal to the government for a trial programme in a high school that has about 2,000 students. Once they have learned the technique, and begun the advanced Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme including Yogic Flying, this group would be sufficient to create invincibility not just for the United Arab Emirates but for the whole Gulf region, Raja Peter said.

Dr Fred Travis will be visiting the country in two months and will be giving many top-level presentations to university, business, and government leaders—about ideal brain functioning as the basis of good health and success in life.

Dr Don Brennan, a leading Ayurvedic physician in Great Britain, will also be visiting to give presentations on Maharishi Ayur-Veda health care.

A very positive article on Transcendental Meditation was recently published in Time Out magazine for the United Arab Emirates, Raja Peter said, noting that a new website for Maharishi's programmes in the region will be online soon.
 

New brain research on Transcendental Meditation:
The potential to make 'any child a champion'
 

Brain Reserves(7 September 2009) Dr Guy-Paul Gagné has been leading the way in presenting Consciousness-Based Education to school principals, teachers, and students across Canada, along with Dr Ashley Deans. Dr Gagné has also produced a 17-minute DVD presentation about new research on brain wave integration and its application in education.

Dr Gagné is well known and esteemed throughout Canada, both as a great leader of the Transcendental Meditation organization, and as a medical doctor and Professor of Medicine at McGill University. He is Canada's National Director of Health for the Global Country of World Peace.

'It is phenomenal, the gift that Dr Gagne has of transforming the understanding of a school principal or faculty,' said Raja Paul Potter, Raja* of Invincible Canada for the Global Country of World Peace, introducing Dr Gagné on 2 September** on the Maharishi Channel. Raja Paul was present with Dr Gagné at recent presentations in Montreal.

Dr Gagné commented that since Raja Paul's visit to Canada in the spring and early summer, 'it seems that all the doors are opening for Consciousness-Based Education'.

Dr Gagné and Raja Paul spoke at a private school with few school problems and a low student-teacher ratio, about new research by Dr Fred Travis on developing a high level of brain integration through Transcendental Meditation. The principal and some teachers have learnt the technique and are planning to introduce the programme to the whole school. Two other schools have now introduced Consciousness-Based Education.

Dr Gagné made several presentations with Dr Travis earlier this year in Montreal and Halifax. They presented live demonstrations of EEG brainwave coherence during Transcendental Meditation, in meetings with government officials in the rehabilitation system and with well-wishers of peace and invincibility for Canada.

During these presentations Dr Gagné realized even more clearly that Dr Travis's research 'is a major breakthrough in science' that will propel widespread recognition of Transcendental Meditation 'as an effective method—if not the only method—for longtitudinally improving brain integration'. Dr Gagné said that this research has important implications not only for brain functioning, but also for human performance—'because there seems to be a direct correlation between brain integration and human performance'.

This relationship is 'very appealing', he said; and for Canada as well as for any other countries, 'it not only makes Transcendental Meditation useful for children with problems; but it can take any child and make him into a champion.'

Other leading experts will also participate in the panel, surveying the full range of benefits of Transcendental Meditation including developing full brain potential, reducing high blood pressure and other aspects of cardiovascular disease, enhancing creativity, and addressing mental disorders such as depression.

'Every month we will continue offering this profound and practical knowledge from Maharishi during these lecture series,' continued Dr Roth. He added that Maharishi Invincibility Centres throughout the US will be hosting viewings of the webcast lecture series for local professionals practising Transcendental Meditation.

'Especially during this economic downturn, professionals will seek the pure knowledge being offered now at the Center for Leadership Performance,' remarked Dr Roth in conclusion.
