On a recent Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via satellite and over the Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel, Dr Harris Kaplan, Raja (Administrator) of India for the Global Country of World Peace, reported on his recent tour of India's Brahmasthan, the first Peace Palace in India, many Maharishi Schools, and 'stunning progress' on all levels. He cited the high level of organisation and the fulfilment of Maharishi's programmes there.
Dr Kaplan warmly praised Dr Girish Varma, Director-General of the Maharishi World Capital of Peace at the Brahmasthan of India, and Chairman of Maharishi Vidya Mandir Schools Group, as the master organizer of Maharishi's programmes and building projects in India.
Dr Varma travels from one huge project to another on a special bus, much of which he designed, complete with a public address system with which he announces the coming of new Maharishi Schools to area residents. His attention to detail is legendary: 'If a building's wall is not just right, he has it bulldozed and rebuilt,' Dr Kaplan related.
Driving to Ayodya, they saw golden Maharishi Vidya Mandeers (Maharishi Consciousness-based Schools) constructed according to the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, every 30 to 40 kilometres.
Dr Harris showed pictures of the huge Bhopal campus, one of the 185 Maharishi Schools with their 85,000 students—now the top schools in all of India—designed by Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Global Reconstruction of the Global Country of World Peace, with its beautiful gates, ample play areas, and marble rooms.
With flags of the Global Country of World Peace flying from every spire, it is an impressive prototype educational centre. Dr Kaplan cited the enlightened daily routine of its students, including Ayur Vedic self-pulse readings, locating the Ved and Vedic Literature in the physiology, and studying different parts of Maharishi's knowledge.
Dr Varma has set up Consciousness-Based schools (the first, in his home with six or seven students) even in areas where they were initially not welcomed. Now these are successful and self-sufficient schools where students and parents alike practice Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme twice a day, and there are waiting lists for admission.
Global Good News will feature Part Two of this article in the coming days.
