On 21 May 2005 Times Herald-Record reported:
The Global Country of World Peace, the international non-profit organization founded by spiritual leader Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, recently bought 818 acres of farmland in Goshen, New York. The land, reported to be some of the most fertile in the region, will be used to grow organic vegetables and to teach organic farming.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of environment.
Times Herald-Record reporter John Sullivan introduced the new owners of the land in a comprehensive opening paragraph about the Global Country of World Peace: 'They own their own city, have their own government, and print their own currency. They want to make people physically and spiritually healthy by feeding them organically grown food. They believe Transcendental Meditation and flying yogis can promote world peace.'
Sullivan went on to detail the extensive plans the group has for the land, including an international institute centred on organic farming techniques and greenhouses to provide Maharishi Vedic Organic Products,'the group's agricultural arm', with organic produce to sell to the New York metro region.
The article quoted Richard Quinn, the group's representative in New York. 'The present food supply has become very polluted with lab chemicals and genetic manipulation,' he said. 'These things hinder the physiology from having profound experiences.' Quinn went on to explain to Sullivan that the Global Country of World Peace is dedicated to educating people on ways to improve their health and reach enlightenment.
The article ended with a section of questions and answers on the Global Country of World Peace. Questions included 'What is it and what is its mission', 'What is the Raam'(the development currency used by the Global Country of World Peace), and 'What is Transcendental Meditation'?
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
