On the 22 January Global Family Chat, broadcast daily via satellite and over the Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel, Dr Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and Planning of the Global Country of World Peace, announced a new programme for Teachers of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation.
Speaking to the World Congress of Rajas and Ministers of the Global Country of World Peace, Dr Feldman said that 'today is the beautiful full moon of January marking the completion of the auspicious sixth month of the First Year of Invincibility', as marked by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, from last Guru Purnima* [29 July 2007].
In August 2007, Maharishi started the tradition of global Puja on every full moon following Guru Purnima, the full moon in July. (Please visit the Global Good News features on Maharishi's addresses on the full moon celebrations in August and September 2007).
Dr Feldman said, 'It will be our collective joy to perform Puja to Guru Dev** today, as Purusha*** are doing all over the world on this auspicious day.'
Puja is the Vedic ceremony of gratitude to Guru Dev and the Vedic Tradition of Total Knowledge, the oldest tradition of knowledge on earth. As Maharishi explained in a recent address, 'The Puja to Guru Dev is the mechanics of nourishing every fibre of the administration of Natural Law, and of nourishing all life on earth.'
Dr Feldman continued, 'And we invite all the Teachers of Transcendental Meditation here and everywhere to have Puja to Guru Dev from this full moon to the next full moon in their Centres and in their groups every day, joining Maharishiji in offering ourselves to the Totality of Brahm as we had been led by him, and to bring ourselves to the level of the blessings of Guru Dev, the Light of God, for the invincibility of every nation in Maharishiji's world, in Maharishiji's whole family of nations.
'We offer to Guru Dev our confidence. We return to Guru Dev his own blessings, Maharishiji's blessings for the world, and the absolute certainty that the 35 countries that already have invincibility in the number of [practitioners of Transcendental Meditation] and Yogic Flyers that have been trained there, and with all the 48 countries led by all the Rajas of the Global Country of World Peace together to create this memorial to peace—the Tower of Invincibility in every nation—bliss will expand to fill the whole world and administration through silence will guide the world in perfection.
'So with Maharishiji and Maharajaji [Maharaja Nader Raam, first ruler of the Global Country of World Peace], each of these offerings that we offer in Puja to Guru Dev are offering the same blessings of Guru Dev to him, with Maharishiji.'
Then the World Congress of Rajas and Ministers of the Global Country of World Peace took part in the global ceremony.
* Guru Purnima is the day in the Vedic Calendar which honours the Vedic Tradition of Total Knowledge, traditionally celebrated each year on the full moon in July.
** Maharishi's Master, Shri Guru Dev, His Divinity Brahmanand Saraswati, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Himalayas
*** Maharishi has explained that Purusha means the Self, the quality of infinite silence of the Unified Field of Natural Law. Purusha also refers to members of the Maharishi Purusha Programme—which was designed by Maharishi for men who wish to dedicate themselves fulltime to the most rapid pace of evolution possible and creating world peace. This is accomplished through the extended group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, and activity dedicated to the fulfilment of the many programmes of Maharishi's worldwide organizations.
