The Ministry of Religion and Culture for the Global Country of World Peace recently welcomed a very special group of dignitaries—a delegation of traditional leaders from the Amazon—to the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland.
Speaking about their visit on the Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Chris Crowell, Minister of Religion and Culture, said, 'It's such a joy to see throughout the world all the beautiful richness of culture in our world family and to celebrate the dignity of every single culture around the world.
'There's a very beautiful theme in every culture and tradition of the world and that is the connection of the individual and society with Natural Law. The life of society, the life of the individual is really the expression of that total intelligence, the total creativity of Nature. Culture acts as the technology that links the individual with the organizing power of Nature, with the government of Nature, the Constitution of the Universe which beautifully organizes everything in life, from the level of the cell in the body to the far distant galaxies in space. Everything is upheld in the path of evolution in perfect harmony and perfect order.
'Culture, whether it be in Latin America or in Asia, or in any land, is really that agency, that body of knowledge which keeps society and the individual on the path of peace and progress generation after generation. It is the ability of the leaders of society, the cultural leaders, to be able to enliven the connection between Nature and the individual in society. . . . They have been the custodians of divine knowledge, of divine life, and have enlivened that as best they could in their society. They have been adored as the parents who lovingly protect and provide for all the people that they rule, and they express that unity of Nature through their administration—that beautiful unity of life that underlies and supports the richness of diversity expressed in every land and in every individual.'
It was a great joy to welcome representatives of one culture in our world family—a delegation from the Amazon, Dr Crowell continued. We were very happy to welcome them on behalf of Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam, the first Ruler of the Global of Country of World Peace, and to tell them about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's programmes to bring fulfillment to every culture in our world family.
The Ministry of Religion and Culture presented to them an organization that Maharishi established to honour, support, and fulfill the life of traditional rulers around the world: The World Federation of Traditional Kings. The World Federation of Traditional Kings has over 300 members in more than 30 countries throughout the world, Dr Crowell said. These traditional rulers may be called by many names, 'but Maharishi had wanted them to have the title of ''traditional king'' to show the world family that this was a beautiful and highly dignified resource of administration for our world—that these were the custodians of peace for their area whose rule has been handed down generation after generation,' Dr Crowell explained. 'They are really reflections, as I said before, of the parental role of Mother Nature; they are the parents of society and they rule based on the value of love. . . . [Their rule] reflects the underlying unity of Natural Law, the unified value of Natural Law which perfectly upholds the life of every single particle of diversity throughout creation.'
There is great diversity in the world—a multitude of nations and cultures, 7,000 languages, almost 7 billion individuals in our world family, all of whom must be brought to fulfillment. This was the vision presented to the traditional leaders in the delegation from the Amazon, Dr Crowell said. '[We] showed them the great range of fellow traditional leaders in our world family who have come together in great appreciation for Maharishi's knowledge. . . . [We] have been honouring traditional rulers of every land,' Dr Crowell said, including the continental US, Hawaii, Latin America, Nigeria, Ghana, Australia, and the Philippines.
