On 19 July, during the global Guru Purnima celebrations being held in MERU, Netherlands, Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of India, gave a beautiful address highlighting the rapid steps of progress in bringing Invincibility to India. Raja Harris expressed his deep praise and admiration for the leaders of the Global Country of World Peace in India who are working so diligently and with great focus to fulfil Maharishi's great goals for their country, the Land of the Veda.
Beginning his presentation, Raja Harris announced the very exciting news of a large celebration held on Guru Purnima day, 18 July, in India.
Describing the event, Raja Harris said, 'Yesterday there was a very large celebration that captured the entire country of India. Dr Girish Varma*, National Director of the Global Country of World Peace in India, had a beautiful plan to create another wing of the Global Country of World Peace that would inspire the imagination of all of India.
'Yesterday he had 1,500 people come to an enormous pandal in Jabalpur, and it was there that the Chief Minister of the state and all the leading educators of the state, leading politicians from the towns and cities, all came with the Chief Justices. 1,500 people gathered to celebrate the great fortune that Maharishi had come from that area of Madhya Pradesh very near Jabalpur.
'There was a wildly enthusiastic response, described by Dr Girish Varma as a 'fire of a response'. Nine television stations were there, including two national television stations. One television station broadcast the entire nine hours of the celebrations. They broadcast the beautiful address and blessings from Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, as well as a beautiful talk by Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace. Dr Morris gave a global perspective of India and Maharishi's Vedic Pandits in the context of his total plan for enlightenment for every individual and invincibility for every nation.
'It was thrilling to hear that every major newspaper of India has a story today with beautiful large pictures and the wave that came out of that is absolutely wonderful,' Raja Harris said.
Praising the leaders of the Global Country of World Peace in India, Raja Harris said, 'I thought of the greatness of all the dear Indian leaders.' Raja Harris quoted Maharishi, writing in Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Bhagavad-Gita: A New Translation and Commentary, Chapters 1-6**:
''Whether surroundings and circumstances are favourable or unfavourable, men of honour and grace always act in a way that leads them to glory here on earth and in heaven.''
'—and these are all the leaders of our dear Indian movement,' Raja Harris said.
Raja Harris then summarized the main theme of the announcement which Dr Girish Varma had given to those gathered in Jabalpur on Guru Purnima day. These highly laudable plans for India include instruction in Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme for one crore (10 million) people, and instruction in Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, for 100,000 people. Raja Harris said that Dr Girish Varma had already laid out very precise measures to implement these plans in each state so that day by day and month by month the numbers enjoying Maharishi's programmes will be increasing.
Global Good News will feature more highlights of Raja Harris Kaplan's address in the coming days.
* Dr Girish Varma is also Minister of Higher Education of the Global Country of World Peace; Director-General of the Global Capital of World Peace at the Brahma-Sthan of India; Chairman of the 160 Maharishi Vidya Mandir Schools Group; and President of Maharishi Institutes of Management and Information Technology, in India.
