On 19 August 2005 Columbia Daily Tribune reported:
The Columbia Daily Tribune reported that an organization led by Indian spiritual leader Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is planning to build a 'Peace Palace' in Columbia, Missouri. The plans are the result of a new initiative to build 2,600 Peace Palaces throughout the United States and 3,000 worldwide.
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.
Currently Peace Palaces have already been built in Lexington, Kentucky; Bethesda, Maryland; Houston, Texas; and Fairfield, Iowa, home of Maharishi University of Management. Writer Kevin Coleman interviewed a number of Peace Palace directors.
'Maharishi said there's an excessive amount of world tension, fear, and stress,' Wally DeVasier, director of the Fairfield Peace Palace, was quoted as saying. He went on to explain that spreading Peace Palaces would counterbalance the world's problems and improve the health and well-being of communities.
The Peace Palaces offer the Transcendental Meditation Programme (TM), a technique scientifically shown to release stress and improve health, energy, and problem-solving creativity—as well as spas and stores that sell stress-reduction and health-related products.
The Peace Palaces will all be constructed using Maharishi Sthapatya Vedic principles, 'an ancient Indian architectural system that focuses on the orientation of buildings and natural laws of harmony and order'.
Columbia Peace Palace Director Jim Morrow said that he is currently looking for land and is hoping to inspire a group of local 'founders' to help fund the Columbia complex through donation or investment.
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.
