Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, began his address to the annual global celebration of Guru Purnima Day, 7 July 2009, with two beautiful Vedic expressions:
'Saha nav avatu
Saha nau bhunaktu
Saha viryam karavavahai
Tejaswi nav adhitam astu
'Let us be together,
Let us eat together,
Let us be vital together,
Let us be radiating truth, radiating the light of life.
Never shall we denounce anyone, never entertain negativity.'
—and Vasudhaiva kutumbakam: 'The world is my family.'
Speaking at the international Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland, and connected via Internet broadcast with similar celebrations around the world, Maharaja referred to the Vedic recitations performed earlier in the celebration by Maharishi Vedic Pandits at the Brahma-Sthan (auspicious central point) of India; and to videotapes of Maharishi's historic Guru Purnima addresses from past years, which the global Guru Purnima Assembly in MERU had been enjoying every day since 4 July.
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said that the Assembly was so blessed to be able to listen and bask in the sounds of the Vedic Laws of Nature—the expression of total Natural Law. Awakening those sounds in our awareness and performing Puja to Guru Dev* with Maharishi, he said, 'we feel very blessed today to offer back to Maharishi all that he has given us, as he did to Guru Dev, so that eternally, on every Guru Purnima, represented by all his family—which is the world as a whole, which is total Natural Law—he can eternally offer back again and again to the Self, to total Brahman Consciousness, to total Brahmi Chetana, to total Being, the perfect realization of total Natural Law, its own expressions in life.'
Maharaja said that every Guru Purnima brings 'a flavour of a quality'—as the Assembly had been appreciating in Maharishi's historic addresses. He said that sometimes we have seen Maharishi offer Heaven on Earth to Guru Dev on Guru Purnima. At other times he offered invincibility; other times, enlightenment. 'This Guru Purnima also brings to us some very special flavours on the level of pure feeling that is emanating from the natural reality of time, and the natural requirement of time,' Maharaja said.
Maharaja thanked the leaders of the Global Mother Divine Organization** who carefully selected the videotapes of Maharishi's addresses, 'which gave the quality of Saha nav avatu, Saha nau bhunaktu as the feeling of this Guru Purnima, and Vasudhaiva kutumbakam from Maharishi as the reality of what we are living, and what we want the whole world to be able to live.'
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said that 'on the level of achievements, however small they are, we feel quite fulfilled. We feel that really we are giving justice to Maharishi's teachings, to Maharishi's guidance—and for that we have to recognize the great achievements of our Ministers (of the Global Country of World Peace), with their leadership in the Prime Minister (Dr Bevan Morris), who have maintained the perfection of knowledge, the purity of the teaching.' They have faced tremendous requirements and have been able to deal with them, Maharaja said, and together with the Global Council of Rajas, to 'maintain the line of thought, the line of action, the line of achievement and fulfilment in the purity of Maharishi's guidance and the purity of Maharishi's instructions.'
He lauded the Prime Minister and all the Ministers, who have maintained 'great levels of organization, administration, and preparation; of guidance and of leadership towards maintaining perfection of action, to whatever extent the time and the conditions and circumstances allow. We offer to Maharishi the achievements of Prime Minister and all his Ministers.'
Maharaja highly commended his Rajas of the Global Country of World Peace, who 'have been absolutely focussed under Maharishi's guidance and direction; their achievements have also been tremendous. It is really the beginning of unheard, untold achievements as we have started to see represented by our great ''ringleader of the Rajas'', Raja John Hagelin,*** and his presentation; his progress and his leadership have been really exemplary, leading to our Guru Purnima today.'
Maharaja said that the global Guru Purnima Assembly had recognized the achievements of the great leaders, in particular Raja Jose Luis Alvarez, Raja of Latin America, and Raja Peter Warburton, Raja of Invincible Great Britain, both of whom 'I would like to recognize very specially as exemplary, and as examples of what all the Rajas have been doing.
'We are really on the level of great fulfilment from the practical level,' he continued, 'and we have in India a great leadership'—Dr Girish Varmaji,**** Dr Prakash Srivastava, and Dr Anand Srivastava—upholding the Vedic Pandits and the Vedic scholars, 'making sure that they are prepared properly to come out to the world and to give the knowledge that Maharishi has structured for the whole world.'
Maharaja also praised the many leaders and organizers in MERU, and those who maintain the connection between India and the whole world—especially noting the contributions of Dr Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and Planning; Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of Invincible India; Raja Steven Rubin, Raja of Invincible China; and Dr Girish Momaya—who are also offering achievements today to Maharishi, so that they can be continuously offered to Guru Dev.

Presentations by Raja Hagelin, Raja Luis, Raja Peter, and Dr Varma will also be featured.
