Following the introduction by Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, to the celebration of the Global Country of World Peace on 31 December 2008, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Sovereign Ruler of the Global Country, gave his address to the celebration.
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said that with the vision and thought of Guru Dev* comes the feeling of wholeness and totality reverberating and lively in our thoughts and feelings, in a year where we have seen quite some extremes—the year that took from us on a physical level, the living embodiment of Guru Dev* in this age for us, His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi.
'Yet the year showed us at the same time his immortality, his living reality, his presence—in his knowledge, in his administration, and his gifts to the world—from the extreme feeling of loss to the extreme feeling of never will anything be lost—that is what marks the infinity of Guru Dev, his infinite silence that Maharishi has presented to the world in his infinite silence and dynamism.'
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said that Maharishi made everything so simple, so accessible, and has shown us how all opposites are part of one infinite reality of pure Being. 'In all his years of teaching, Maharishi paid homage again and again and again to Guru Dev, and Maharishi's duty as he has seen it was to fulfil Guru Dev's purpose for the world.'
Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said that Maharishi had two aspects in his awareness all the time: Guru Dev, the infinite silence, the recluse; and Guru Dev, the teacher, the one who brings people out of darkness into the light.
'These two aspects are like silence and dynamism,' said Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, 'for if you want to act to remove darkness by bringing the light, you are in a dynamic field yet remaining in silence. . . . We feel very greatly fulfilled that the silence of Guru Dev and the depth of his Himalayan retreat is present and upheld by our great Purushas**, who are holding the fort, and are a great joy to Maharishi in their enlightened, daily returning back to the Self in the pure atmosphere of pure Being. . . .'
That is one aspect of Guru Dev, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam said—Guru Dev, totality, embodied in Maharishi and given to the world.
'Another aspect of Guru Dev,' Maharaja Adhiraj Raam continued, 'is his teaching; Guru Dev did speak and teach silence and transcending. His teaching is present to us in the tapes of Maharishi and all the knowledge that we have gathered and written and studied.
'Therefore the speech of Guru Dev is available in detailed form in all these tapes, all these collections of knowledge and experience. And the essence of his speech, the true speech of Guru Dev, which is true, total, perfect knowledge, is also available to us in the Vedic sounds in the form of the Vedic Pandits of the Vedic Tradition, who we absolutely honour . . . for when they sit and speak, whether performing a Yagya or [performing] on any occasion . . . they are the speech of Guru Dev, because that is the finest level of speech.
'From silence, which is the most fine level, comes the reverberation of Natural Law, which creates the entire universe. That fine reverberation is the Constitution of the Universe, the Veda and Vedic Literature. Applied in specific ways, it addresses specific needs in the same way as the speech of Guru Dev, a great Master, would in one word, a few words, enlighten and bring relief to the people.'
*Guru Dev: His Divinity Brahmanand Saraswati, Jagatguru Shankaracharya of Jyotir Math, Himalayas, and Maharishi's spiritual teacher. Guru Dev is honoured as the embodiment of Vedic wisdom closest to Maharishi in the illustrious tradition of Vedic Masters who have passed down the eternal wisdom of life from teacher to student since time immemorial.
*Purusha: Maharishi has explained that Purusha means the Self, the quality of infinite silence of the Unified Field of Natural Law. Maharishi designed the Maharishi Purusha Programme for men who wish to dedicate themselves fulltime to the most rapid pace of evolution possible and creating world peace, through extended group practice of the Transcendental Meditation-Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying, fulfilling the goals of the Global Country of World Peace in 192 countries of the world.
