Address of Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam
to the global celebration of the Festival of Lights
(19 October 2009) Maharaja
Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace,
addressed the global celebration on 17 October 2009 of the Festival of
Lights, the auspicious day of Dipavali in the Vedic Calendar celebrating
Mahalakshmi, the administering intelligence of Natural Law for bestowing
wealth, prosperity, and bliss on every individual and nation.
Speaking during the live global web broadcast from MERU, Holland,
Maharaja explained that the treasure of Mahalakshmi is unbounded in
promoting health, happiness, and peace for everyone. This is the
blessing that Guru Dev,** the Vedic Tradition of knowledge, and
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi are bringing to the world, he said.
Following the video of Maharishi's historic address during the Festival
of Lights celebration in 2007, and the special live Vedic Recitations by
Maharishi Vedic Pandits at the Brahma-Sthan [auspicious central point]
of India and in MERU, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam began by quoting the
Vedic expression Purnam adah purnam idam—'That [unmanifest] is full, and
this [manifest] is full.'
'That is the gift of Mahalakshmi,' Maharaja said, 'and I wish to join
everyone celebrating today in the whole world'—and even those who don't
know of it, he said, but who enjoy the blessings of the celebration—'in
seeing the path, the fulfilment of Mahalakshmi, the Supreme Mother; and
to bring the level of reassurance, and security, and feeling at peace
that . . . there is not only something for everyone—in a reassuring way,
that the treasure of Mahalakshmi in health and happiness and peace is
unbounded. But also to bring it to the level of total fulfilment, where
everything can be owned by everyone.'
Maharaja said that this is the blessing of Guru
Dev, the eternal Vedic Tradition of knowledge, and Maharishi, bringing
it to the world in this generation. He gave the examples that a child
might want a toy; or an individual growing up at school; or in one's
life one would have a desire for something—as an adult, a family, a
nation. 'Different levels of desire happen in life, and the fulfilment
of these desires is brought about by Mahalakshmi,' Maharaja said. |
'Mahalakshmi brings the fulfilment of every desire, ultimately leading
to the fulfilment of all desires, which is the field of Wholeness, of
Totality, where one knows that not only can one own everything, but one
knows that one is everything. That is the state of total enlightenment.'
In that state, true fullness, true Wholeness, Totality, is achieved, he
said. 'That is the blessing of the Vedic Tradition, the blessing of
Maharishi—that the enlivenment of the value of Mahalakshmi is brought to
its total level of reality and fulfilment. That is what we have been set
to do, to accomplish, and to bring to light for all humanity.'
Referring to the replay of Maharishi's address to the Dipavali
celebration on 9 November 2007, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said,
'Maharishi has blessed us in his expressions that we heard today, in
laying out clearly the structure of his world administration [the Global
Country of World Peace] and its ability to reach fulfilment.
'With all great honour and adoration to everyone participating in this
structure, we would like to highlight today the importance of the
''key'', because there is a big treasure. People can sit on a huge
treasure; the money can be unbounded in the bank, but if one doesn't
know how to get it, or to open the treasure, or know of its existence
and how to get to the bank and get the money, then that treasure will
remain not fully available to the individual.
'Whereas we have that treasure, and we have the keys to that treasure,
ultimately in our enlightenment; and the re-acceptance and understanding
intellectually; and the direct experience of our own reality as being
infinite, unbounded Totality, Wholeness, where we are the treasure',
Maharaja said. He continued to explain that, 'on the path to becoming
ourselves, [realizing] the treasure within ourselves, the path to
achieving all these steps of evolution that are part of life, part of
living, and which express themselves in desires that need to be
fulfilled—hopes, expectations, desires to achieve, here and there small
things, here and there big things—whatever they are, they are all steps
towards reaching the ultimate goal.
'The generosity and the kindness, the compassion of Natural Law is that
it also gives, on the path, the mechanism of achieving even the small
goals, so that the small steps of whatever comes to us from Karma*
[action and reaction], from whatever remains in our Samskaras [past
impressions]—whatever comes to us, whatever we have inherited, at
whatever position we are in life—we are desiring; and that desire gets
fulfilled; and the fulfilment brings new desires; until in the
enlightenment state we realize we are Wholeness and Totality.'
Vedic Pandits hold
to lighting the light of life for everyone
(20 October 2009) Continuing his address to the
auspicious global celebration of Dipavali on 17 October, Maharaja
Adhiraja Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace,
honoured the Maharishi Vedic Pandits of India, who have the key to
removing all obstacles and lighting the light of life for everyone. He
also explained an aspect of his discovery of Veda in Human
Physiology—awakening the total value of Mahalakshmi, the total
nourishing power of Natural Law structured in the heart.
Referring to the theme he began earlier in his address, Maharaja Adhiraj
Rajaraam explained that even the path to enlightenment itself, in which
all desires are fulfilled, is made fulfilling. 'The steps themselves
have mechanisms to allow them to be enjoyable, whole, and full,' he
said, 'and these steps have their own mechanisms to be achieved—of
course from the level of the Transcendent. But we have a key, a very
special key that removes the obstacles, that opens the awareness, and
that truly lights the light of Dipavali, the light of life—so that the
darkness disappears, and every step is walked in knowledge and
understanding, in light, in Wholeness; so that the steps are always
towards the goal, and never are lost.
'This very special key that removes all obstacles, lights the light to
progress, and allows the individual to ultimately reach the goal is in
the hands of the Vedic Pandits, as Maharishi beautifully said today, and
we honour that tradition.
'We pay our total respect and adoration to the performances of the Vedic
Pandits that bless us in Yagyas, in performances that allow Natural Law,
or act with Natural Law to create balance and wholeness, and bring
fullness to life.'
Maharaja went on to explain one aspect of his discovery, under the
guidance of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, of Veda and Vedic Literature in Human
Physiology. A beautiful and fulfilling aspect of our human life,
Maharaja said, is exemplified in the physiology by the heart: 'the heart
that at every beat—and it keeps beating all life long—spreads to the
whole physiology all nourishment, and all that is needed for the
achievement of every step, every goal, every desire.'
He said that whereas the nervous system digests information and allows
this information to be expressed into thoughts, speech, action,
achievement, and fulfilment, 'it cannot do anything without being
sustained and upheld, nourished and maintained every single moment by
the functioning of the heart, which generously and uninterruptedly
continues to send nutrients, oxygen, information, and all that is
needed, as it allows the circulation of different chemicals, hormones,
That general structure is compared to the structure of Mahalakshmi,
Maharaja said, and 'here again is a new awakening of the value of the
whole of Mahalakshmi, the Totality, in the finest level of the heart.
'The heart has been expressed as space, which actually has a physical
structure, but has much more than that in its function, in its
structure, in its fine organization. It has an aspect of feeling and
sensing, detecting, being delicately alert to every aspect of one's
needs and desires; and it adjusts itself to fulfil those needs and
'Therefore, with the fullness of Mahalakshmi on the experiential and
intellectual level, to the finest levels of Mahalakshmi on the feeling
level, and all the light that Mahalakshmi gives in terms of nourishment,
awakening, and information—we have today truly a supreme day, a supreme
performance that will definitely spread to the whole world to remove all
suffering, all lack, and bring prosperity, happiness, and fulfilment to
'We have that knowledge and technology from the Vedic Tradition. We have
the structure [the Global Country of World Peace]; we have the blessings
of the Vedic Pandits. All is available, and life is definitely going to
be healthy, happy, and prosperous, with peace and fullness experienced
in every individual life and in all societies.
'Happy Dipavali to everyone. Jai Guru Dev.'
Role of the Festival
to bless every home with abundance;
President Chissano's visit to
Maharishi Vedic City
October 2009) During the global celebration on 17 October 2009 of the
auspicious day of Dipavali, the Festival of Lights, Dr Bevan Morris,
Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, opened the live
webcast with reflections on the significance of celebrating Mahalakshmi,
the administering intelligence of Natural Law, to bestow wealth,
prosperity, and bliss on every individual and nation. Dr Morris also
commented on two special circumstances surrounding this year's
Please also see 'Global Country of World Peace celebrates affluence and
prosperity for every individual and nation' for a summary of the 17
October 2009 broadcast.
Connected to the celebration via teleconference from Maharishi Vedic
City, USA, Dr Morris began by reflecting on the great value which
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace,
always placed on the day of Dipavali.
'Our beloved Maharishi gave to us all the Vedic calendar to accelerate
the evolution of individual and collective life, and this has been an
incredible blessing to us all. Maharishi's blessed Vedic Pandits enliven
throughout the year the great principles of the administration of the
life of the universe from the level of Purushottama*; and today in that
sequence, the Festival of Light, which brilliantly enlightens the whole
year. Every year Maharishi would celebrate Mahalakshmi on this day—Mahalakshmi,
which is to say the supreme principle of abundance in creation—which,
under Maharishi's inspiration, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam found seated in
the heart of every human being, for every household on earth to be
filled with abundance—physical, mental and spiritual wealth.'
Continuing, Dr Morris noted the significance of a special visit by
President Joaquim Alberto Chissano, former president of Mozambique, to
Maharishi University of Management, Fairfield, Iowa, USA, and Maharishi
Vedic City, during the time of these auspicious celebrations. 'It is
very fulfilling to us here in Maharishi Vedic City,' he said, 'with all
the Rajas who are residing in this great city, that on this auspicious
day, President Chissano has come and is celebrating the Festival of
Light with us all.' Dr Morris described how President Chissano was
warmly greeted in the traditional Vedic fashion by the 1,000 Maharishi
Vedic Pandits residing in Maharishi Vedic City, and participated in the
Pandits' traditional Vedic Recitations for the Mahalakshmi celebration.
'President Chissano is most certainly the most enlightened president in
the modern history of world,' Dr Morris said, 'who with open heart took
the blessings of Maharishi's teaching and applied it to his nation,
through 13,000 soldiers learning the Transcendental Meditation Programme
and 3,000 becoming practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi
Programme. This resulted in the end of a 17-year civil war, the end of
drought, and growth of prosperity for the nation.** And that peace,
balance of nature, and growing wealth has been continuing for 17 years
since he introduced Maharishi's programmes into his own life, to his
family, his cabinet, and to his whole military and to the nation. We all
consider it highly auspicious that he is here at this moment, and that
he was garlanded and greeted by Maharishi's Vedic Pandits today.'
Celebration of Dipavali by US President
signals rise in collective consciousness
October 2009) During the global celebration of the Festival of Lights on
17 October 2009, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country
of World Peace, commented on the celebration of Dipavali in the White
House by US President Barack Obama, who explained in detail the
significance of the day in terms of the triumph of good over evil,
freedom in life, and enlightenment.
The Festival of Lights, Dipavali, is the auspicious day in the Vedic
Calendar celebrating Mahalakshmi, the administering intelligence of
Natural Law to bestow wealth, prosperity, and bliss on every individual
and nation in the world.
Dr Morris continued by commenting on the unprecedented observance of
Dipavali by President Barack Obama. He said, 'We're . . . feeling very
uplifted today that the President of the US, Barack Obama, has become
the first US President to celebrate Dipavali, by lighting the light in
the White House while the Vedic Pandits chanted Mantras. And he recorded
a message for America and the world, celebrating Dipavali, explaining in
quite great detail the significance of this day in terms of the triumph
of good over evil, in terms of freedom in life, and in terms of
'It is quite moving to hear the President of the US speaking of
enlightenment, and we can feel in this, that the world is becoming a
truly Vedic world, a Vedic civilization, and with the Vedic calendar and
Vedic Pandits celebrating with us, that the descent of Heaven on Earth
is coming faster and faster. We are so happy that this has happened; and
now we can also reflect that the YouTube video of President Obama's
message was the second most viewed in India over the last two days.'
Concluding his opening remarks, Dr Morris introduced the next speaker in
the live celebration webcast, Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of Invincible
India for the Global Country of World Peace. Dr Morris praised Raja
Harris for his role in supporting the groups of Maharishi Vedic Pandits
both in the United States and in the Brahma-Sthan (geographic centre) of
'It is now my great joy and fulfilment,' Dr Morris said, 'to ask the
Raja of India to formally introduce from the Brahma-Sthan of India . . .
from the Global Capital of Raam Raj, this day—this great Festival of
Light, when Mahalakshmi is celebrated for every household on earth. We
feel fulfilled that the Raja of India is there in India with the
Maharishi Vedic Pandits, for this celebration' and also the two global
celebrations on the previous two days, Dr Morris said. He expressed the
appreciation and gratitude of everyone to Raja Harris and to Dr Girish
Varma, Director-General of the Global Capital of Raam Raj,* 'and all
other leaders of India, for organizing this great day for us'.
Golden Domes of Pure Knowledge
'Particle accelerators of consciousness'
(28 October 2009) On Victory Day, 28 September,
Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA,
held its annual Founder's Day celebration, in honour of Maharishi Mahesh
Yogi, who founded the university in 1971. Dr Bevan Morris, President of
M.U.M. and Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace,
described an early visit to the campus by Maharishi in 1979, during
construction of the Golden Domes of Pure Knowledge.
The two Golden Domes at M.U.M. were the first buildings in the world
constructed specifically for large group practice of the Transcendental
Meditation Programme, including Yogic Flying, to create coherence in
national and world consciousness.
In these Domes, large groups of Yogic Flyers have been practising the
Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme together twice daily for many
years. These groups became part of the ongoing Invincible America
Assembly, established in 2006 by Maharishi to ensure a permanent
influence of harmony and peace in collective consciousness, sufficient
to create invincibility for the nation and world peace.
At the Founder's Day celebration, which was replayed on the Maharishi
Channel on 21 October, Dr Morris said that when he was appointed
Chairman of the M.U.M. Board of Trustees in 1979, Maharishi's first
request to them was to build two Golden Domes, which would be 'great
particle accelerators of consciousness', in which 1,500 people—the
number required at that time for national invincibility—would practise
Yogic Flying together in an ideal environment.
Telling many anecdotes about unique circumstances that supported the
construction of the first Dome, Dr Morris told of the rise in
temperature in the usually extremely cold Midwestern US winter. The
outside temperature rose by a remarkable 50 degrees for twenty-four
hours, exactly the time needed to pour all the concrete for the floor.
Dr Morris related that during an unexpected two-day visit to the
university in December that year, Maharishi met with many different
groups, including university faculty and students, and all the
entrepreneurs who were creating the first businesses that would support
the coherence-creating programme at the university and in the greater
Finally, before Maharishi left, he wanted to see the progress on the
construction of the Domes, which, Dr Morris said, 'were Maharishi's own
inspiration for the university, and which completely changed its nature
and its role in the world'.
In the coming days, Global Good News will present Maharishi's address to
everyone gathered in the framework of the Dome in December 1979.
Dr Morris's address on Founder's Day was replayed on the 21 October
Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet
webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily
Global Family Chat (audio track) are also available for automatic
download, via an RSS feed.
Historic role of the
at Maharishi University of Management:
Creating coherence in world consciousness
(29 October 2009) During the Founder's Day
celebration at Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.) on 28
September, Dr Bevan Morris, President of M.U.M., told the story of the
historic visit of university Founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi to the campus
in Fairfield, Iowa, USA in December 1979. (The university was then known
as Maharishi International University - MIU.)
At the end of his two-day visit, Maharishi addressed a gathering in the
framework of the first Golden Dome of Pure Knowledge, then under
construction. In his address, which was replayed at the recent Founder's
Day celebration, Maharishi spoke about purifying world consciousness
from the Golden Domes in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. He expressed his deep
appreciation for all those who had been working so dedicatedly to build
the Domes for group practice of the Transcendental Meditation programme,
and especially Yogic Flying:
'Now you have this beautiful place to fly high,' he said, 'and take the
influence of coherence very high in the atmosphere, so that this center
of Pure Knowledge, in this most creative country in the world, radiates
coherence and harmony to purify the whole world consciousness.'
Maharishi said that the progress this university has made in evolving
the package of pure knowledge year after year is very fortunate, and
'now its physical expression of success is to fly high in this Golden
'I deeply appreciate the structure of this beautiful Dome raised by the
Governors of the Age of Enlightenment [Teachers of Transcendental
Meditation] with great love and dedication. The fruits of this tree
planting—all their hard and devoted labour will bear great, great fruits
for the whole of mankind to purify world consciousness. . . .
'And we will hear [of] the purifying influence,' Maharishi said. 'All
the world over, we'll hear of this city of Fairfield. I congratulate the
citizens of Fairfield, that they have successfully cooperated in this
beautiful platform of worldwide coherence to come up in these cornfields
'And we must feel obligated to whosoever is controlling the weather!' he
said. 'This is what the collective desire of the Governors of the Age of
Enlightenment creates—support from Nature—a very beautiful demonstration
of the spontaneous support from Nature for what the Governors of the Age
of Enlightenment desire to do.'**
'This is the first Dome that will create a very powerful influence of
coherence in world consciousness,' Maharishi concluded. 'We will
continue to purify world consciousness day after day, and week after
week, and month after month, and year after year, generation after
generation.*** It's going to prove a blessing for the whole mankind.
This will be the pride of Fairfield.'
