During Maharishi's Global Family Chat recently, Raja Peter Warburton, Raja (Administrator) of England for the Global Country of World Peace, read out letters that had been sent to Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for the global celebration on 12 January 2008.
Raja Peter said there was 'one thing that I felt was very touching. Some time after the 12th of January this year, we received a set of letters from the pupils at the Maharishi School in Skelmersdale, Lancashire, in England.'
These pupils were moved by Maharishi's announcement that he was retiring: that he felt his work was done, and memorials to his achievements in the world would take the form of Maharishi Towers of Invincibility with associated Maharishi Schools—where the pupils would have the same educational experience that these pupils in Skelmersdale are having, to create personal enlightenment and invincibility for the nation.
'The pupils were moved by the announcement of Maharishi's retirement and they wanted all to write to Maharishi to thank him,' Raja Peter said. 'It was a collective gesture from their side to want to write to Maharishi and appreciate what he had done for them in their lives.'
The first was from Robert Palmer aged 16:
Thank you for your wisdom, thank you for your knowledge. Thank you, Maharishi, for all you have given to us and taught to the world. Coming to the Maharishi School has improved my life, and I am very happy for everything I've learned and gained from experiencing meditation. Knowing that there is someone like you in the world is a very comforting feeling.'
From Olivia Jones, aged 13:
Meditation has been the best thing that has happened to me. It is sad to hear that you are retiring, but I hope your dreams and wishes are fulfilled.'
From Joe Broom, aged 11:
Thank you for teaching us meditation, and helping us get this amazing school. We're learning lots about the fundamentals of growth. I wish that many of your wishes are fulfilled. Since I learned meditation, I have felt more awake and happy.'
From Lucy, aged 10:
I love the Maharishi School. I haven't ever been to any other school. I don't really want to. All my friends on my street want to learn meditation. Happy birthday. I wish you all good luck in the year ahead. I learned meditation a year ago and I enjoy it a lot. Love from Lucy.'
From Mimi, aged 7:
Thank you for this great School and the calming Word of Wisdom* and Gandharva Veda. I wish that other people come to Maharishi School and more people learn TM. Love from Mimi.'
From Scarlet, aged 5:
Thank you for Surya Namaskar** and my Word of Wisdom. I wish I could meet you. Love Scarlet.'
'These are just some of the spontaneous expressions from the pupils at the Maharishi School in Skelmersdale', Raja Peter said. He then showed slides of the Head Teacher, Dr Derek Cassels with some of the pupils.
* Word of Wisdom: The special technique of Transcendental Meditation for children.
** Surya Namaskar: a Yoga posture to create balance and flexibility in the body.
