On 9 October 2008, during the grand, daylong celebration by the Global Country of World Peace of Victory Day, the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashmi in the Vedic Calendar, Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, gave a beautiful, inspiring address to the assembly of Rajas, Raj Rajeshwaris, and Ministers of the Global Country in MERU, Holland, and to viewers around the world enjoying the global live broadcast on the Maharishi Channel.
Please also see Part I and Part II of this article, in which Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam expressed warmest congratulations on the Coronation ceremony of five new Raj Rajeshwaris—Mothers of the World from the Sovereign Domain of Consciousness, and explained the responsibility of the Global Country to nourish the connectedness among all nations and solve urgent crises by awakening the field of Pure Being, total Natural Law, in individual and collective consciousness.
Maharaja continued by asking how individual leaders in finance and other fields, whose actions impact the whole world, can currently make right decisions at the right time? 'No one can do it. No government can do it,' he said.
'We can do it. We have to wake up again and again, as we are, and as everyone of you is.'
'But today brings us that inspiration to do it, and proclaim it, and take that responsibility very seriously—and also be simple enough to look into our own programmes, make sure we are doing the programmes* properly, make sure our Yagyas are performed properly, make sure our Vedic Pandits are in the proper training and the proper programme as they should be. We also take responsibility that if we have been doing other things or we have been thinking of other things, more than this one focussed principle, one focussed goal that Maharishi has given us, then we are wasting our time.
'We do have to take care of realities of every day. We do have to take care of ways to function, to pay our bills, to do everything. That's the reality of our world, that's the reality of daily living. There are also different approaches, that's completely fine to have one approach from this angle, one approach from that angle—every approach has to be nourished.
'But all approaches, all our thought and our heart and our mind is with one goal: How am I enlightening the world? How am I bringing Pure Being in the consciousness of every individual in the world? How am I awakening collective consciousness to be a collective consciousness that is balanced, that is in accordance with total Natural Law—or how am I awakening the self-referral nature of life everywhere? And the mechanisms of doing it are fine—how do I do it, I like to do it this way, you do it this way.
'There are the practical levels, but always awake in our consciousness personally, always referring back to the teachings, the profundity of the complete teaching that Maharishi has given us, remember this goal.
'And today on Vijaya Dashmi, offer it to the world and proclaim that we'll have a campaign to promise and guarantee to every government in the world, and to every individual in the world, that they don't need to have any fears. They don't need to have any sense of uncertainty for the future—because we have the infinite resources of total Natural Law available to us and the perfect knowledge that we have given, that has been scientifically proven, that we can guarantee to produce the results.
'This is the gift of Mother Divine** and the blessings of the Raj Rajeshwaris today, and all the Rajas and Ministers, together, to truly thank Maharishi for the enlightenment he has given us on a personal level. And the way to thank him is of course by living it ourselves, by ensuring that the programmes that he has given are properly administered, properly done, and by giving those programmes to the world that would create an effect, and that would guarantee for all future to come, a heavenly life on earth.
'Sometimes it takes Nature to shake things for people to wake up. Nature is always loving, that is the principle. There is no principle of punishment in Nature. Of course there is punishment in a sense, but what is the purpose of that? Maharishi often repeated this beautiful example: If you're driving on the highway and you are not alert, and you're making mistakes—and suddenly you go off the road, and let's say there is a big cliff or valley, then there are what they call road blocks, road barriers to prevent you from falling into the valley. So you hit the barrier, you get hurt, but it saved you from a much bigger disaster.
'So this barrier there is a wake up call, it's a reminder. You can still want to jump over the barrier and then get a bigger problem, but Nature will always try to save you. And in this crisis—I think whatever it is, it can be seen in a negative way by many people; and it does have a very negative aspect to it, we cannot hide from it, and again we don't want to analyze it.
'But for us it's an awakening, for ourselves and for the entire world consciousness. Maybe this crisis will awaken so many people to come along, and to help Howard Settle*** and Raja Harris [Kaplan, Raja of Invincible India] and those people who are wealthy and have given their money and their time and their programmes, and they're doing it alone—but now is the time to tell them we can do it, together we can do it.
'It's a world responsibility, and we see this shaking from Nature as a gift of awakening and also as a gift from Maharishi, from the Holy Tradition—take this responsibility at heart, we and all those who have the wealth to support us, and let's create Heaven on Earth. Maybe we can offer this to Maharishi by 12 January, and even by the one-year anniversary.
'These are my thoughts today, which are thoughts of celebration and joy, great joy of the rise of enlightenment, and the enlightenment lived within our family. And also at the same time the sense of responsibility that leadership gives. And since we are crowning leaders, it's time also that we awaken ourselves to our responsibility of giving to the world the knowledge with which we have so generously been bestowed. All glory to Guru Dev.**** Jai Guru Dev.'
Following the conclusion of Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam's address, the first session of the Victory Day celebration concluded with his raising the Flag of Invincibility in MERU, during a procession including the Raj Rajeshwaris, the Rajas, and Ministers of the Global Country of World Peace, led by royal bagpipers.
