Maharishi inaugurates year 2004 as the
“Year of Peace Palaces of the
Global Country of World Peace”


Announces global plan to create
a world of permanent peace and affluence

“We are promoting all good for all mankind
for all ages to come”


(January 13, 2004) His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi inaugurated 2004 as his “Year of Peace Palaces of the Global Country of World Peace,” and launched a plan to immediately construct Peace Palaces in every country and train expert administrators in the knowledge of total Natural Law to create a world of peace and affluence for all times to come.

“We have the knowledge of total Natural Law—which administers the universe with perfect order—and we have a short, direct path to awaken this total knowledge within the awareness of every individual,” Maharishi declared. “With our success of the past 40 to 50 years, we begin this new year with a great momentum to perpetuate this knowledge and create a new world where no one has to face problems or suffering—now or in the future.”


Maharishi delivered his inaugural address on January 12 during grand global celebrations held on all continents and broadcast live via satellite and Internet webcast from the Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in Meru, Holland.

Administration through education

Maharishi said that education is the key to ideal administration and a problem-free world. For that, Maharishi said, His Majesty Raja Raam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, along with his cabinet ministers, are establishing universities, colleges, and schools in Peace Palaces in every country to provide the whole population with the knowledge of total Natural Law in eight areas: education, health care, economics, political science, administration, defense, agriculture, and architecture and city planning. Such education, Maharishi said, will promote mistake-free life for every individual and prevention-oriented, problem-free administration for every nation.

Knowing will be made complete by being

Maharishi explained that education has failed to create ideal administration in the past because it has been based only on knowing about Natural Law. But now, through the universities, colleges, and schools of the Global Country of World Peace, students will have the experience of being total Natural Law within their own inner Self—the basis for living perfection in life. “Knowing will be made complete through being,” Maharishi said.

Peace Palaces to be constructed according to
Vedic architecture in harmony with Natural Law

Maharishi said that the Peace Palaces will be constructed according to Vedic architecture in harmony with Natural Law, and will provide a proper home for the enlightened Administrators of the Global Country of World Peace. “The cosmic wakefulness of total Natural Law—the will of God—will be the guiding feature of every Peace Palace,” Maharishi said.

Promoting all good for all mankind for all ages to come

Maharishi concluded by declaring the immediate task ahead—to construct Peace Palaces and train Administrators of the Global Country of World Peace—to be a joyful one. “Total Natural Law—the will of God—is the nature of life. It has been sung by leaders and followers of every religion—and demanded by all people—throughout time,” Maharishi said. “That is why the world is fortunate to be under the guidance of His Majesty Raja Raam and his expert cabinet ministers who are providing to every individual and every government the knowledge of total Natural Law to promote all good for all mankind for all ages to come,” Maharishi said.

 Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, wins vote for
"American Dream Town"

"Our city fulfils the American dream of a happy,
healthy life in a safe and peaceful environment"
-Mayor Wynne

Maharishi Vedic City -- Iowa's newest city -- is also Iowa's "American Dream Town," according the results of a widely publicized Internet vote that sought to identify the most ideal small town in every state in the nation. The honor was announced this week by Ingrid Lemme, founder of the American Dream Town (


With the honor, Maharishi Vedic City will also be featured in the soon-to-be published book "American Dream Towns USA, 2004," which is slated for national and worldwide distribution.

"Maharishi Vedic City fulfils the American dream of a healthy, happy life in a safe, peaceful environment," said Dr. Robert G. Wynne, Mayor of Maharishi Vedic City. "We appreciate this honor and invite everyone in America to come and see for themselves why Maharishi Vedic City received this award."

Maharishi Vedic City is named in honor of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the world's foremost scholar in the Vedic science of prevention. The programs of Maharishi's Vedic Science have been utilized by governments, universities and schools, businesses, and health care systems throughout the world. Maharishi Vedic City is unique because it has incorporated all of Maharishi's programs to promote prevention-oriented, problem-free administration. These programs include:

Vedic Architecture

"Every home and office building in Maharishi Vedic City is designed according to Vedic architecture to promote health, happiness, and good fortune," Mayor Wynne said. "For example, every building faces east, and has a silent center space called a Brahmasthan."

Vedic Health Care

"Maharishi Vedic City is probably the healthiest city in America," Mayor Wynne said. "Our residents make use of Vedic health care to prevent disease and promote health. And we are home to the College of Maharishi Consciousness-Based Health Care of Maharishi University of Management and the world-renowned Raj Health Center, which provides the prevention-oriented Maharishi Vedic Approach to Health to guests worldwide."

Vedic Agriculture

"We recognize the importance of healthy food for our citizens," Mayor Wynne said. "That is why we have banned the sale of all non-organic food from our city and have begun construction on the first of a planned 100 acres of greenhouses at Maharishi Vedic City Organic Farms which will grow healthy, nutritious organic produce for residents of our city and the whole Midwest."

Vedic Education

"We recognize that the solution to all problems is proper education -- education that develops the total brain potential and cosmic creative intelligence of every student," Mayor Wynne said. "That is why we are proud that our city and the surrounding area are home to world's flagship educational institutions based on Vedic Education -- Consciousness-Based Education -- including Maharishi University of Management, Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment, Maharishi Open University, Maharishi Spiritual University, and Ideal Girls School. These institutions also offer courses in Consciousness-Based Education to schools, colleges, and universities throughout the world."


Vedic Administration

"Maharishi Vedic City is a model of prevention-oriented, problem-free administration for every city -- large or small -- in the world," Mayor Wynne said. "To achieve this, we have adopted as our constitution the Constitution of the Universe, which administers the infinite diversity of the universe with perfect order."

Vedic Economy

"The ideal currency of Maharishi Vedic City is the Raam -- the development currency of the Global Country of World Peace. The City is also planning to be the future home of Raam Bank," Mayor Wynne said.

Vedic Defense

"We founded Maharishi Vedic City to become a 'lighthouse of peace' for America and the world," Mayor Wynne said. "That is why our city is working to quickly establish a permanent group of peace-creating experts whose daily practice of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flying techniques will promote coherent national and world consciousness and thereby prevent any negativity from arising in America or in the family of nations."

Maharishi Jyotish And Yagya Programs

The planets are constantly influencing our life. This influence can only be handled by programs based on Maharishi Vedic Astrology. The basis of these programs is the precise, mathematical calculation of birth charts of individuals, corporations and nations. Through Maharishi Jyotish and Yagya Programs it is possible to minimize and alleviate negative planetary influences and enhance positive influences.

Day of Maha Ganapati - Day of Ganesh 11th January

Ganesh - removing hindrances and promoting success 

It is a joy to announce one very special highlight in our theme of ‘Maharishi Yagyas Around the Year’ for the month of January:

The fourth lunar day of the dark half of the month of Magha is dedicated to Ganesh, who is also called Ganapati. On this very special day of Ganesh the aspect of the Cosmic Creative Intelligence which helps remove obstacles and hindrances is most lively in nature. Ganesh also promotes clarity of the intellect which gives insight into the deepest aspect of Vedic knowledge, the knowledge of Natural Law, and helps to develop perfection in life.

By nourishing this specific Law of Nature through the performance of Maharishi Yagyas one enhances the ability to remove obstacles from different areas of one’s life and increases intellectual clarity and success in achieving one’s goals. 

Maharishi Yagyas can be requested to help accomplish the following purposes:

  • To promote freedom from obstacles

  • To promote removal of psychological fear

  • For gaining knowledge

  • To increase harmony in married life

  • Promoting good fortune

  • To increase wealth

New Plan for Maharishi Jyotish and
Maharishi Yagya Programmes

The basis of all Maharishi Jyotish and Maharishi Yagya services is the Comprehensive Life Kundali (CLK)-an elaborate preparation and study of the birth chart or horoscope of the individual and his or her closely related family members. The CLK is prepared only once in a lifetime by a panel of experts in the Maharishi Jyotish Programs and will be an all time standard reference for predictions, consultations, muhurtas, compatibilities and Maharishi Yagya recommendations.

Please contact the Maharishi Yagya office for more information on obtaining your Comprehensive Life Kundali.
