During the grand, global celebration on 8 May 2008, the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya, the Day of Lasting Achievements in the Vedic Calendar, following traditional Vedic Recitation by the Vedic Pandits at the Global Capital of Raam Raj in the Brahma-Sthan (geographical centre) of India, Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, gave a beautiful address.
Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam was speaking from the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Netherlands, in the presence of all his Ministers and Rajas, and leaders around the world enjoying the live broadcast via satellite and over the Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel.
Maharaja began by lauding the Vedic Pandits, and said, 'On this very auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya, having received the blessings of the Vedic Pandits, and performed Puja (Vedic ceremony of gratitude) to Guru Dev*, all our thoughts, feelings, and gratitude go to his Divine Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi (Founder of the Global Country of World Peace), who in the light of Guru Dev, in the light of the eternal Vedic tradition, has given everyone in the world the ability to achieve anything, to reach the highest goals and fulfil the highest aspirations of all sages and of all good-wishers of humanity.
'Maharishi has given answers to all questions, unfolded total pure knowledge, pure Being, in the lives of all individuals who learned his techniques and listened to his teaching.
'In life so many questions arise: Why are we here? Why are we living? What's the purpose of all of it? Why do we eat? Why do we have wishes and hopes and desires? Why do we see conflicts? Why and why and why—so many questions about life.
'And Maharishi has answered all of these questions. Of course, there are many answers on the individual life and different levels of the answers. Every individual has so many answers to so many of his questions, and there are so many individuals. And all of these answers are real on their level.
'The answers are also given in the Vedic Tradition, and the Veda, Itihas, Puran, Smriti; in Yoga, Karma Mimansa, Vedanta; and all the Vedas—Rk, Sama, Yajur, Atharva—all aspects of Shiksha, Kalp, Vyakaran, Nirukt, Chhand, Jyotish, they have answers—Sthapatya Veda, Ayur-Veda. All answers to different questions and different levels of questions.
'Yet Maharishi has given the one answer that the Vedic Tradition upholds; that Guru Dev upholds; that Maharishi upholds, for the entire creation. This one answer is the secret of all secrets. That is the answer to every question. Ultimately every question that one asks about everything or anything comes to that one answer, to that one reality.
'And that secret of secrets is very simple. It is: Sarvam khalw idam Brahm—''Everything is Wholeness, everything is Totality, everything is pure Being.'' And therefore the quests of all quests, the search for all questions, the fulfilment for all desires, the achievement of all achievements, the highest aspiration of everything and everyone is to live the truth of life, the reality of existence. To fulfil that level of understanding that everything is Wholeness, everything is pure Being, pure silence, pure infinity, Totality, oneness. And that means myself, yourself, and everything that exists.
'Whatever we strive to do in life, whatever we want to achieve, is just in that direction, in the direction of reaching that understanding, and that level of experience in life.'
