On 8 September 2005 Danbury News Times reported:
The Global Country of World Peace is looking for land in Danbury, Connecticut (USA) to build a Maharishi Peace Palace where people can learn and practise the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM). The article said that the international movement, founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, is dedicated to spreading 'peace, Transcendental Meditation, and ancient teachings from India around the globe'.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the fields of world peace and world peace.
Terry and Bernie Nevas, who are in charge of the Danbury project, told reporter Eugene Driscoll that after the 11 September terrorist attacks, Maharishi embarked on a mission to build 2,400 Peace Palaces in the United States, and 3,000 Palaces worldwide.
'What we're offering is all kinds of peace-creating technologies. That means peace for the individual, and peace for the environment. Transcendental Meditation is the primary technique that we teach,' Terry Nevas was quoted as saying.
The article went on to say that finding land for the Peace Palace is more difficult then one might expect. The Nevases are looking for a location that is not close to high-tension wires, and which doesn't have any large hills blocking the morning sunrise by more than 12 minutes.
In an overview of movement activities in the United States, the article mentioned the recent incorporation of Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, just five miles away from Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa. It was explained that all of the buildings in Maharishi Vedic City were built according to the principles of Vedic Architecture, and use only nontoxic materials as well as solar energy.
The article quoted Robert Phipps, executive vice president of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce describing the influence of the meditating population in the area: 'The meditators have transformed the Fairfield area into a haven for artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs,' he said. 'They have had a tremendous effect on this city.'
Near Danbury, in the town of Hamden, the Nevases have already located land appropriate for the construction of a Peace Palace and are now talking to developers. The article said that Maharishi Peace Palaces have already been built in Bethesda, Maryland, in Maharishi Vedic City, Iowa, and in Lexington, Kentucky.
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
