The Global Country of World Peace recently celebrated the grand inauguration of the new Maharishi Resort in Chihuahua, Mexico. The celebration—featured on a special Maharishi Global Family Chat and broadcast live around the world via satellite and over the Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel—was one of the great initiatives undertaken worldwide by the Global Country of World Peace on Akshaya Tritiya, the auspicious Day of Lasting Achievements in the Vedic Calendar.

Following the address of Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, Dr Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and Planning and the host of this celebration, showed video clips and photos of the Maharishi Resort facilities.
'We would like to give everyone around the world watching the celebration,' Dr Feldman said, 'a glimpse of Maharishi Resort, a flavour of this unique centre of enlightenment and invincibility.'
Dr Feldman showed aerial photos of the existing eight buildings, and the lake, which is being expanded, 'extending in front of all the buildings, with fountains, so that the view from every building includes the beautiful greenery, and the ponds and fountains in front of them'.
Looking to the east, there is a 'huge valley, at this time of year it will be green and lush with crops being grown. The first part of the valley belongs to the Maharishi Resort,' Dr Feldman said.
Another view toward the west showed the slope where Mario Aguilera, the great builder of the Maharishi Resort project, 'chose to begin the construction, going higher and higher, and up to the ridge of that whole area, that is the area of the Maharishi Resort'.
Dr Feldman also showed still photos from Google Earth, showing the lake and 'one of the beautiful buildings with 20 rooms each', designed by Dr Eike Hartmann, Global Minister of Architecture of the Global Country of World Peace. He showed the view towards the western end of the property, with the eight buildings towards the east, 'and then the whole lush valley and mountains of Chihuahua far away to the east as well'. The last photo, showing Daniel Seymour, another leader of the project, with Mr Aguilera, brought great applause.
'The Maharishi Resort will soon be offering short visits and longer visits for people all over North America, Mexico included, and Latin America,' Dr Feldman said, 'for health, enlightenment, and invincibility of the whole region and the country of Mexico—and to support the rising invincibility that Dr Morris and Raja John Hagelin*, with the great support of Dr Howard Settle and everyone in Maharishi University of Management and Maharishi Vedic City, have created for America. To this we add one more engine to the invincibility of the whole region of North America, and making that whole area a great blessing for the world as a whole.'
Dr Feldman again expressed his warmest appreciation and gratitude—'Muchas Gracias'—to the gathering in Mexico of distinguished leaders of government and education, and those of the Maharishi Resort, including Teachers and practitioners of Transcendental Meditation, and Yogic Flyers, who were connected via videoconference with the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in Meru, Netherlands
Several of those in Mexico spoke again, with Mario Aguilera relaying in Spanish the words of the Mayor of Cuauhtémoc, the city adjacent to the Maharishi Resort. Dr Feldman, translating, said, 'In concluding we have heard again from the great Mayor of Cuauhtémoc, Mr Fernandez, his thanks for the joy of sharing this bliss of inaugurating the Maharishi Resort. And he has reiterated the commitment of his government to support in every way the good progress and the expansion and fulfilment of this organization. So thank you again very much Mr Fernandez, for your welcome which we treasure in Chihuahua, particularly in Cuauhtémoc.'
Dr Feldman also translated the concluding remarks of Dr Daniel Garcia, Rector of Universidad Regional del Norte [Regional University of the North] in Cuauhtémoc. 'Dr Garcia has expressed his joy for all being together and being ''transported'' in this way at this time. It is a very special time when this great place has been established, and he asks everyone to feel proud of it, and to know we'll be even prouder, as this place develops the universal citizen—the citizen with that ability to think in a universal way, that everyone aspires to create in the field of education in the world. And he has expressed his thanks for thinking of Mexico, thinking of Chihuahua, thinking of Cuauhtémoc.'
Dr Feldman also mentioned Dr Garcia's beautiful response to Dr Morris's inspiring words of support earlier in the celebration: 'The Rector of the Regional University of the North has said that in his university, we ''can all find a sister university; and Maharishi University of Management has found a sister university''. Thank you very much Rector, we treasure and appreciate your words very, very much.'
Dr Feldman concluded the intercontinental broadcast with a hearty 'Well done Mexico! Viva Mexico! Jai Guru Dev.'
