Continuing the Global Celebration of Maharishi's Year of Invincibility—Year of Global Capital of Raam Raj—on 15 January, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, began by introducing the legendary Scottish musician and songwriter Donovan and his family. Dr Morris praised Donovan's historic achievement in founding the Invincible Donovan University in Scotland on the inspiration of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace. Land on the beautiful Firth of Forth, near Edinburgh, has been acquired for the university.
Dr Morris then called on Rajas and National Directors to report on ceremonies held in 104 countries on 12 January to honour Maharishi and the new year. The Flag of Invincibility was raised and, in some places, ground was broken for construction of the Maharishi Tower of Invincibility. Reports were enjoyed from Belgium, Luxembourg, Lebanon, Syria, Italy, Australia, Estonia, Barbados, Sweden, Ethiopia, Israel, South Korea, Nepal, USA, Ireland, Greece, Austria, Finland, Norway, and Ghana.
Everywhere, participants at the ceremonies described profound experiences of bliss and fulfilment, and recounted many examples of support of Natural Law in carrying out the ceremony. At several locations, weather conditions suddenly became favourable, confounding local forecasts, while in other areas there were unexpected breakthroughs in the acquisition of land for the Maharishi Tower of Invincibility.
The Flag of Invincibility was raised on recently-acquired land 20 kilometres (12.5 miles) from Beirut. Plans are in progress to build the Maharishi Tower of Invincibility, an Invincibility University, and a hundred-room Maharishi Spa on the 1700 square metre (2,100 square yard) site.
More than 50 people gathered to perform the ceremony on beautiful land within a park 20 kilometres from the centre of Rome. During the proceedings, several hours of stormy weather with continuous heavy rain suddenly ceased, so that everyone could enjoy the event. Construction is planned in the near future.
Founders of the Global Country of World Peace celebrated the day on the land in Adelaide, South Australia where ground-breaking ceremonies had already been performed in July. On 12 January, the Flag of Invincibility was raised, followed by the national flag, the flag of Australia's indigenous people, and the state flag of South Australia. An Invincibility School is planned for the site, along with the Maharishi Tower of Invincibility.
Along with descriptions of their ceremony, representatives of the beautiful Caribbean island of Barbados were happy to report that a large donation had just been received towards construction of the Maharishi Tower of Invincibility.
Flag-raising ceremonies were held at three locations, including on parkland in Stockholm and in a province in the far north where Maharishi spent 3 months in the summer of 1968, as fondly remembered by the local people.
