On 5 November 2010, in a grand, day-long celebration that circled the globe, the Global Country of World Peace celebrated the Festival of Lights. The celebration began at the Global Capital of World Peace at the Brahmasthan (geographical centre) of India, and concluded in the Golden Dome at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, featuring special Vedic recitations by Maharishi Vedic Pandits in India, Holland, and the USA.
In the tradition of annual celebrations of the Global Country of World Peace, the Festival of Lights, Dipavali, is the most important day in the Vedic calendar, the day of Mahalakshmi—the day of celebrating and enlivening the qualities of abundance, affluence, and fulfilment inherent in the structure of Natural Law, for every individual and every nation.
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, honoured by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as the First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, participated in the celebrations in India and Holland via video conference, and addressed the celebration in the Dome at MUM.
Historic addresses by Maharishi from celebrations of the Festival of Lights in 2003 and 2004 were played during the celebrations.
In his address in 2004, Maharishi praised the Vedic Pandits as 'the custodians of the Constitution of the Universe' [the Veda, total Natural Law]. Our programme to bring invincibility to every nation, Maharishi said, is a programme to bring 'the fulfilled level of affluence and invincibility for every man of our generation, for every government in our present world, and for all generations of governments in the coming future'.
The Vedic Pandits' performance on that day, Maharishi continued, 'has given us the great strength from that level which is the source, course, and goal of all creation, which is the basic creative intelligence of Natural Law, from where the total Natural Law administers the universe, the ever-expanding physical galactic universe, with perfect order. . . .
'The glorious Raam Raj [administration of total Natural Law] is upholding us today, and is blessing the whole world consciousness. With this Festival of Light today, we have symbolic light of total enlightenment, that intelligence of total Natural Law which governs the evolution of everything and everyone, and upholds the supreme level of the target of all evolution at every level of evolution.' Maharishi also commented on the 'enormous unfoldment of the science and technology of all possibilities' enlivened through the Vedic Pandits' recitations.
Maharishi praised the perfect system of administration of the Global Country of World Peace. 'In our effort to perpetuate it, our programme is to have schools, colleges, universities, and health institutions, and institutions of perfect protection, perfect defence, under the ideal banner of ''Heyam duhkham anagatam—avert the danger that has not yet come.'' Prevent the problems before they arise,' Maharishi said, through the great tradition of prevention-oriented administration of Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam.
In Maharaja's address, he discussed the profound value of the Vedic Pandits' recitations, and described in detail his discovery, under Maharishi's guidance, of the structure and function of Mahalakshmi in human physiology.
