On 9 February 2005 Aachener Nachrichten reported:
It's almost unbelievable, but true: the tiny town of Vaals, with its dwindling population, is becoming the center of the world - at least the world of Transcendental Meditation (TM).
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 world peace.
The article, one of two stories in the same issue of the Aachene Nachrichten, one the of leading daily newspapers of the city of Aachen, Germany, was accompanied by a color photo of His Majesty Raja Raam on his throne.
The article began: 'In a seven-day-long celebration 14 Rajas (kings) are being installed in their position as the enlightened. At the same time the fiftieth anniversary of the appearance of Maharishi Yogi in India is taking place. He achieved worldwide fame in the 60s when the Beatles embraced his teaching. Today Richard Gere and Mia Farrow are prominent proponents of this daily journey into the self.'
The article notes that followers have not let themselves be swayed by critics. 'They have placed worldwide advertisements inviting governments to receive world peace training in Vaals and to achieve invincibility for their nation.
'Even the USA cannot protect itself from terrible things happening, said a spokesman; new methods are required. By means of a small portion of the population meditating daily for 20 minutes, heaven on earth can be created.
'TM chose the Dreilaenderpunkt [the place where the 3 countries of Belgium, Germany, and the Netherlands meet] because it lies in a good time zone and is the highest point of a peace-loving nation.'
