On a recent Maharishi Global Family Chat, broadcast live daily via satellite and over the Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel, Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Architecture of the Global Country of World Peace, gave an inspiring and very complete, detailed presentation of the master plan for the World Capital of Global Raam Raj in the Brahma-Sthan (geographical centre) of India.

Please also see Part I of this article.

Dr Hartmann continued his presentation on the master plan, referring to a map of the entire Brahma-Sthan:

The main axis of the Brahma-Sthan, he explained, is represented on the map as a long line going from east to west, and coming into the central area. From that long line, many perpendicular (north-south) roads branch off. Each time a road branches off the central east-west axis, there will be a gate, 18 gates in all. Each gate is dedicated to one Devata*.

Each gate will lead to a village; each village that branches off from a particular gate is an Anushthan village, in the name of that particular Devata; and the Vedic Pandits there will be performing that particular Anushthan (a particular kind of Vedic performance). For example, there will be the Vishnu gate, Shiva, Saraswati, Lakshmi,** etc.

'So as one goes along the central axis, which is like a spinal cord, then right and left are roads, and one knows exactly what is going on [in each area]. This is the main ordering principle of these different villages,' Dr Hartmann said.

The central square of the Brahma-Sthan is 500 metres by 500 metres, one-half km diameter—containing many Mandaps (buildings for Vedic performances by the Vedic Pandits). There are 200 Mandaps for each of the five Vedas: Rk Veda, Atharva Veda, Shukla Yajur Veda, Krishna Yajur Veda, and Sama Veda—exactly 1000 Mandaps in all.

'The Mandaps are small', Dr Hartmann explained, according to Maharishi's principle that 'small groups of Pandits should perform together, then every individual voice is counted, very much. So they will be just for five Pandits, who will be performing the Veda Path (recitation of Vedic sounds).'

Dr Girish Varma*** has already completed building one of the 1,000 marble Mandaps as an example, Dr Hartmann said. It is covered in beautiful white marble, glassed-in, with a porch in front and very nicely air-conditioned; it has very solid construction, and all the arches and pillars are beautifully carved.

Thus, Dr Hartmann said, '5,000 Vedic Pandits will be performing Veda Path all together at the same time—that is the activity in the Brahma-Sthan of Veda Bhumi Bharat (India, Land of the eternal Vedic tradition of knowledge).'

The very central area is empty, he said, 'because it is dedicated to Brahm, Totality; and Totality cannot be described other than as emptiness.'

There are 12 temples in front, each one related to, and having the name of, one of the 12 Jyotir Lingas in different parts of India. Each of the 12 Jyotir Linga temples at the Brahma-Sthan will be for 121 Pandits. Dr Hartmann explained that each day, 'these 12 temples, times 121 Pandits, will perform one Ati Rudrabhishek Maha Yagya****; and if they perform two, there will be two Ati Rudrabhishek Maha Yagyas being performed per day at the Brahma-Sthan—plus there will be 5000 Pandits performing Veda Path.

'So that is the activity worthy of the Brahma-Sthan of India and worthy of the Global Country of World Peace,' said Dr Hartmann.

Tomorrow Global Good News will feature Part III of Dr Hartmann's inspiring presentation, in which he described further details about the design of various structures and areas in the Brahma-Sthan of India.

* Administering intelligence of Natural Law.

** The Devatas representing, respectively, the infinite dynamism of Natural Law, infinite silence, pure intelligence, and wealth and prosperity.

*** Dr Varma is Director-General of the Maharishi World Capital of Peace at the Brahma-Sthan of India, Chairman of Maharishi Vidya Mandir Schools Group, and master organizer of Maharishi's programmes and building projects in India.

**** Rudrabhishek is a special Vedic peace-creating performance by Vedic Pandits. When performed by 121 Pandits, it is called Maha Rudrabhishek; when performed by 11 groups of 121 Pandits, it is known as Ati Rudrabhishek Mahayagya. Thus, as Dr Hartmann explained, 12 groups of 121 Pandits at the 12 Jyotir Linga temples in the Brahma-Sthan will be more than enough to fulfil the requirement for one complete Ati Rudrabhishek.
