Global Good News comment:
On 11 February, Maharishi was accorded a State funeral with full honours by the Government of India. The Agni Samadhi Vedic rites were conducted on a high plateau, on the grounds of a temple Maharishi had been in the process of building in homage to his Master, and overlooked the confluence of the Ganges in Allahabad. The State funeral, attended by thousands, was carried by Sadhana TV station, and was presided over by the Shankaracharya of the North, Swami Vishnudevananda Maharaj. During the military salute, the army held their rifles in a neutral position, in honour of Maharishi's life-long dedication to create world peace. The Sadhana TV commentator mentioned this was the first time a spiritual leader in India had been honoured in this way.
