On 21 October 2007, Dr Harris Kaplan, Raja (Administrator) of Canada and India for the Global Country of World Peace, spoke about the Capital of Heaven on Earth in Canada during the celebration of Vijaya Dashami, Victory Day, and the 46th anniversary of Maharishi's first visit to Canada.

The celebration was broadcast via satellite to the assembly gathered at the Fairmount Empress Hotel in Victoria and in locations across Canada, to commemorate this occasion, which marks the day when the gates of enlightenment first opened for all of Canada.

The highlight of the celebration was the address of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. (See Global Good News article Commemorating Maharishi's first visit to Canada 46 years ago)

At the end of his address, Maharishi requested Dr Kaplan to describe the Capital of Heaven on Earth, the Capital of Raam Raj on the island of Ganges, in Canada.

Dr Kaplan said, 'We've been looking around the world to find that place, whose scenic grandeur matches the . . . internal grandeur. What is that place, which inspires on the outside, the divinity which is inside? And very fortunately, Dr Paterson [General Secretary of the Parliament of World Peace] has brought us to the point where we have bought some land which I am now going to describe.'

Dr Kaplan said that in considering land all over the world, the goal was to find a location so beautiful that seeing it 'would feel like looking in, would be heaven'.

Dr Paterson found such a spot on the island of Ganges, Dr Kaplan said. To the east, the ocean is dotted with islands that sparkle like jewels, and whales are visible going up and down the west coast of Canada. From the land there is also a view of beautiful forests, and in the distance, snow-capped rocky mountains.

The continuation of Dr Kaplan's talk will be featured in Part II of this article.
