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, once having achieved the highest level of realization—knowing oneself and everything as Brahm, Totality—there is yet one more level: 'bringing that realization to the heart of everyone in the world', through the gift of the perfect science of life that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, has brought to us from the eternal Vedic Tradition of knowledge.
'And that science is not just pure theoretical knowledge,' Maharaja said. 'It came from Maharishi with a technology—the technology of how to do it in a systematic and an orderly way. That's how we have seen this great enlightenment in the world, great experience of pure Being, of consciousness, of the Absolute which was missing in the lives of people.
'And, as we have seen that there are many who have not been able to understand . . . , Maharishi has expanded his teaching to say ''now you come into a group [of Yogic Flyers] and awaken collective consciousness''. That way, even those people who are remote, who are distant, will feel that effect and awaken in that reality, and then experience, and want to search for it. And suddenly they will go to an introductory lecture on Transcendental Meditation, and suddenly they will be interested—could be sometimes because they have high blood pressure, or whatever the reason, they are not sleeping well, something—Nature will bring them there. And then they will get into it as collective consciousness improves.
'He has also brought to us all the different aspects, of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, for example, that will help to organize structures of homes so people are more in tune with Natural Law, and therefore naturally will come to that desire, will understand more of the truth of life, and want to truly experience it and live it.
'Proper healthy food, proper healthy programmes, avoiding things with side effects that disturb the functioning of the nervous system; and all of these different, different aspects —even Maharishi Gandharva Veda, beautiful music. All the aspects of proper food, agriculture, everything that is conducive for the physiology to align itself. And naturally as it gets more balanced, then the understanding and the clarity of thinking increase, and the individual desires the true direction, and starts seeing what the true purpose of life is—what the ultimate answer to every one of his questions is, and then the process of growth and evolution goes on.
'So where do we stand in terms of that reality of the gift of Maharishi today? In our perception, we see Wholeness everywhere, so therefore our role is based on the understanding and experience that everything is divine. Every human being is pure Being, is the light of God living on earth. Everyone has a physiology that is containing the Total Constitution of the Universe, so everyone is a temple of God, everyone is a living reality of Wholeness, of Totality, and therefore we adore everyone. It's a true adoration because we adore God, we adore infinity, pure Being, and everyone we know is that reality, is that pure Being.
'Now, in the functioning of the activities of our Global Country of World Peace, Maharishi has put us in that light of the Holy Tradition of Vedic Masters. Every time we were teaching transcending*, Maharishi insisted it's in the light of the Vedic Tradition—we do Puja to Guru Dev**.
'The technique is very simple—we all know, and those who don't know, they will get to know. But it's put in the light of a Tradition, because that is the connection that ensures that the teaching is connected to the source, and it takes the individual to the source. This is very, very important—the connection to the Vedic Tradition, the connection to Maharishi, to Guru Dev, to the whole Tradition of Vedic Masters—is very, very essential in terms of the long-term result of truly achieving the goal of individual enlightenment, and bringing that reality to the whole society.
'Therefore if we feel—Rajas, Ministers, [Teachers of Transcendental Meditation, and Yogic Flyers]—we are the representatives of the Holy Tradition, and we feel that everyone is absolute pure Being, and therefore we have adoration for everyone; and it's only from that platform that we take our action as guided by the Holy Tradition, by Maharishi, to bring to the world that perfect knowledge of life. . . .'
Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam commented, regarding the role of the Rajas, that it's not a question of Rajas wearing crowns or speaking and acting according to ceremonial procedures. 'We are here to adore and to serve. That's our role, we are the servants. We are the servants.
'But in every kind of situation one has many hats. The man who goes to his job, he has children, at home he is the father. When he drives the children to home, to school—he is the driver. When he is the judge he goes to the [court], he's the judge, he's a very important person. So he performs these roles in life; yet if he is enlightened, he knows that whether driver or judge—it doesn't matter—he is pure Being, Absolute pure Being, like everyone else is.
'And that's how we feel. So we do have a system, we do have etiquette if you like, because the judge has to give judgement in the courtroom, and therefore he has to have certain dress, a certain way of doing things. When he's driving he has to be careful, has to follow the rules of the road, to stop on the red light. There are rules he has learned that he has to follow.
'So there are systems that ensure that there is a proper relationship that allows knowledge and experience to flow in the proper way. It's never on the level of who you think you are, who you think I am—what I am, what you are, who is where? —humble, more humble, honest, simple, innocent—all of these are real on many levels. But on the level of truth of life it's only that one reality—one unbounded pure Being is the reality of everything.'
