Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, continued his beautiful address during the live webcast from MERU, Holland of the global celebration of Victory Day, 28 September 2009.
Illustrating his discourse with examples from the timeless wisdom of the Vedic Literature (in particular the Ramayana and the Bhagavad-Gita), brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, Maharaja had previously explained that one must transcend, go beyond all boundaries and limitations to experience Wholeness—and that was the Victory being celebrated on Victory Day.
He went on to say, 'That victory of Maharishi, victory of Raam [in the Ramayana], victory of Krishna [in the Bhagavad-Gita], victory of the total Vedic Tradition, victory of Guru Dev,* is something that Maharishi has given even to the person who first comes to learn Transcendental Meditation.
'They close the eyes, and having been all in boundaries, knowing nothing but boundaries, nothing but my little self—''I am doing, I am the doer, I am this, I am that''—and I is a small I, very small I, very narrow I, very narrow perception. Suddenly the person closes the eyes and finds a total new reality.
'Even . . . starting to transcend,** there is an expansion of the sense of the self as being a narrow reality; the sense of the Self as a more enveloping, more enclosing, more integrated, more comprehensive aspect of Natural Law. That already is the victory of today that we are celebrating,' Maharaja said.
'Therefore that victory has been, and is celebrated every moment by everyone who goes back to the Self (through Transcendental Meditation). Go back to the silent, inner, deep pure Self, and then you gain victory over any sense of boundary; any sense of limitation; any sense of isolation, of separation—which are the cause of all fears, all worries and anxieties, and therefore of all action that is not in accordance with Natural Law.' These also, Maharaja said, are 'the basis of one small individual challenging Natural Law, like Ravana [in the Ramayana].
'He is a big individual,' Maharaja said, 'it is a big battle, but he is a big point. It can be a huge point, but still it is a point, limited in its perception. He did all the Tapas [spiritual practice]; he did all the activities, and he gained power, he gained energy. Yet his perception, that I and I and I, which is the small I, has made out of him a problem for the entire evolution of the course of Nature to take itself—and [ultimately] allow Nature to live, to give the chance for everyone to live Heaven on Earth.'
Maharaja pointed out that 'what Maharishi has done, is to truly give that day of Victory to be celebrated every day—every minute in one's life on an individual level. And then, having completed his work, Maharishi has created a structure and a system to allow this to happen on the scale of the entire world: to enliven, to awaken the sense, the reality, the experience, the knowledge of Wholeness, of Totality in every individual life, and on the cosmic level for all generations to come—to truly bring Heaven on to Earth—so that whichever point is available is awake in its sense of Wholeness.
'The beauty of it is as if Wholeness has now multiplied itself in so many millions and billions and infinite numbers of different points—and therefore Wholeness itself is now many Wholenesses,' Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said.
'Of course, it's a way of speech,' Maharaja said, 'a way of presentation, but that's the joy of the Absolute that sees and allows itself; that's the joy of the Creator that wants itself, its Wholeness, to be Wholeness, which is infinite—not only in its unbounded reality, but in its ability to perceive itself, to experience itself in so many infinite numbers of outer ways, into points and points and points. We see Wholeness, Wholeness, Wholeness, and that is the beauty of it.'
Global Good News will feature the conclusion of Maharaj Adhiraj Rajaraam's Victory Day address in the coming days.
* Guru Dev: Maharishi's Master, His Divinity Brahmanand Saraswati, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Himalayas. Guru Dev is revered as the embodiment of Vedic wisdom closest to Maharishi in the illustrious tradition of Vedic Masters who have passed down the eternal wisdom of life from teacher to student since time immemorial.
** Transcend: Go beyond the finest level of thinking to experience pure awareness, the silent, unbounded field of Transcendental Consciousness, the basis of the mind's activity. Maharishi's Technologies of Consciousness, including the Transcendental Meditation Programme, allow the individual to experience the effortless process of transcending in a systematic, reliable, repeatable manner.
