In a recent broadcast of the Maharishi Global Family Chat, Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Architecture for the Global Country of World Peace, presented plans for the Raam Darbar, 'Grand Assembly Hall', to be built in Ayodhya, India.

'Already in Ayodhya is a temple at the birthplace of Raam, and on the other side of the city is the location for the Raam Darbar, where Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam will have parliamentary sessions with ministers and delegates of the Global Country of World Peace,' Dr Hartmann said. The new building is being designed and built according to principles of Vedic Architecture.

Dr Hartmann showed illustrations of the shining palace with its traditional stepped roof, adorned with 192 golden Kailashes*. 'Seen from the city, it will appear to be a two-storey building sitting on top of a mountain of flowers. In reality it is four stories surrounded by a mound of flowers. This is a special feature that
Maharishi designed.' The mound will have 192 caves in which the delegates can practise Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, he said. 'The public will enter the palace courtyard through a tunnel in the mound and be able to watch live parliamentary sessions on large screens in the courtyard.'

The plan also includes suites for one thousand Vedic Pandits and special Yagya Shalas. The Shalas, 'houses', will be long and rectangular to accommodate the elaborate settings for the Pandits' performance of Yagyas, in the shape of flying eagles, each made of a thousand bricks, which Dr Hartmann explained is an indication of the precision and detail that is part of the science of Yagya.

Another special feature planned for Ayodhya is that every morning and evening Vedic Pandits will ride into the city to sing the glory of Sri Raam, using the same Vedic verses that Hanuman** sang in ancient times. The Pandits' carts will be electric powered, and were specially designed by Maharishi to look like temples, drawn by 'magnificent' electric horses.

**Hanuman: Impulse of Creative Intelligence associated with dynamism.
