On 29 October 2005 Minneapolis Star Tribune reported:
The Global Country of World Peace announced plans to build a Peace Palace in Minneapolis, offering classes ranging from herbal medicine to yoga, and promising to bring 'inner happiness and fulfilment' through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme. City officials said the concept was new to them but that they were trying to keep an open mind.
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.
Although officials expressed concern that there might be a 'hidden agenda', Michael Hauth, the Minnesota director for the Global Country of World Peace, told reporter Curt Brown that the group's only agenda is world peace.
City Council President Kathy Lantry was quoted as saying, 'Despite my East Side background, there is some benefit to having an open mind to different ways of doing things. And honestly, how can you disagree with world peace?'
Hauth said the Peace Palace, a three million dollar project, would be built in a style of ancient East Indian architecture. The article noted that similar facilities were built recently in Texas, Maryland, and Kentucky. Reporter Brown noted that those city officials had nothing but 'kind words' to say about the 'lovely' Peace Palaces.
'We're delighted with the look of the building and its intricate design, and the whole thing is rather fascinating,' Susan Vreeland, a marketing director for The Woodlands community near Houston was quoted as saying.
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.
