The Maharishi Samadhi Smarak, a beautiful memorial of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's gift of Total Knowledge and invincibility, now under construction in India, is rising as a shining jewel among pilgrimage sites worldwide.
When approaching the elevated site of the Samadhi Smarak, located at the auspicious confluence of the rivers Ganga, Yamuna, and Saraswati, one already gets the feeling of a majestic presence, said Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Global Reconstruction for the Global Country of World Peace.*
The 64 great pillars of the Maharishi Samadhi Smarak can already be seen dominating the entire Sangam (confluence) area at their full height. When completed, 1008 golden Kalashes—Vedic roof ornaments that are traditionally said to connect heaven and earth—will decorate the roof and will be seen shining from far away on the other side of the Ganga.
Many millions of pilgrims who travel between Prayag (Allahabad), Kashi (Varanasi, Benares), and Ayodhya are in the tradition of bathing in the river, and also in 'the ocean of knowledge' as they visit the great teachers of the time there, Dr Hartmann said.
Twelve exhibition Mandaps (halls)—displaying Maharishi's life-transforming knowledge of this scientific age—will lead to the Smarak. This theme of expositions of Total Knowledge is central to the timeless tradition of Prayag, Dr Hartmann said.
Raja Rafael David, a Purusha** Raja of universal domain, explained that this perpetual memorial is a shrine to invincibility and a place of knowledge.
In the coming days, Global Good News will feature the continuation of Raja Rafael's and Dr Hartmann's report about progress in constructing the Maharishi Samadhi Smarak.
