During the grand, global celebration on 8 May 2008, the auspicious day of Akshaya Tritiya, the Day of Lasting Achievements in the Vedic Calendar, following traditional Vedic Recitation by the Vedic Pandits at the Global Capital of Raam Raj in the Brahma-Sthan (geographical centre) of India, Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, gave a beautiful address.
Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam was speaking from the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Netherlands, in the presence of all his Ministers and Rajas, and leaders around the world enjoying the live broadcast via satellite and over the Internet on Channel 3 of the Maharishi Channel.

Maharaja continued speaking on how the supreme understanding from the eternal Vedic Tradition of knowledge, the 'great secret' that we have gained from Maharishi—that everything is Brahm, Totality—holds the answer to all questions in life. 'This knowledge is pure, simple knowledge, very simple knowledge—there is no more search anywhere.
'Of course it is not known by many people,' Maharaja said. 'Some people have heard it but they don't understand it, they don't believe it. Some people believe it but they don't understand it completely. Some people understand it and even believe it, but they don't know what to do with it!
'Some people actually have had a glimpse of it, through transcending.* Sometimes it has come to them in a moment of sudden enlightenment—just a moment of experience, be it a moment of joy with their family, with their loved ones, or with their devotion to God—and they had that beautiful moment, a glimpse of the wholeness of creation, of reality. And they don't know how to get it again, what to do with it? It was something, and—Maharishi gave this example—they may spend their whole life searching for it again.
'Some others, in doing good to others, in good actions, in feeling good—they have that inspiration, that sudden feeling of wellness, of unity, and they think, ''This is the way to do it.'' That's one way to do it—there are many, many ways to achieve that. Again, the answers are on so many levels, every one of them being true and being real.
'Everybody is achieving steps in life, as if sometimes by trial and error, to do something and then learn—and then see when Nature has created a system, that if you do something in that direction you get more fulfilment, more happiness, and therefore you want to do it again; and if you don't, and it brings you other aspects of experience, then you don't want to do it, you want to go in [a different] direction—kind of trial and error. And learning from older people, more experienced people—learning from teachers.
'Then learning that time is also not a barrier, because some things can happen in a short time, immediate satisfaction. But there is also the long term, that Natural Law is also on a long term. You plant a seed today, and it might take years for the fruit to come and the tree to grow.
'But again these are ways of Nature teaching that as we go through time, and maybe many lifetimes—that reality is there as we approach it, and grow in it—as we get more fulfilment, more Ananda, more bliss. So [there are] different ways of experiencing it.
'Some know that reality in a more established way. They have transcended, they feel it, they experience it, as Maharishi has given the technology to transcend and directly Be That and experience That on a daily basis. Then in the growth of That, one comes to the realization, ''I am That, I am that Reality.'' That's a great level of enlightenment. And beyond that, I start seeing others also as being That.
'So for myself, Aham Brahmasmi [I am Brahm, Totality]; Tat tvam asi—''Thou art That''; Sarvam khalw idam Brahm&mdash ''Everything is That.'' That is the highest level of realization, and that is the purpose of all doing, the purpose of all thinking, the purpose of all efforts to reach that reality.
'When living in the glory of that reality, as Maharishi has been . . . with us, as the Holy Tradition is, as Guru Dev is, then comes yet one more level. What can be one more level than knowing oneself as Wholeness and everything is Wholeness? We have reached everything—what can be that one more level? That one more level is: making everyone else also realize that. Bringing it to the heart of everyone in the world, to the mind, to the intellect, to the understanding, and to the deep, true experience of that reality.
'That is the role of the Holy Tradition of Vedic Masters, which Maharishi has been for us, such a profound gift of Natural Law, which brought that understanding in its completeness—Total, unbounded perfect knowledge, perfect science of life.'
