One year ago, in February 2008, the Global Country of World Peace announced that, 'with his life's work complete, His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the illustrious sage of the Vedic Tradition of India, who over 50 years ago introduced his Transcendental Meditation programme to spiritually regenerate mankind and create world peace, ''is welcomed with open arms into Heaven''.' *

Global Good News is honoured to continue reprinting the beautiful Tribute to Maharishi by Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, given during the Global Memorial for Maharishi held in MERU, Holland, on 7 February 2008.
Having begun his address on 7 February 2008 by saying that Maharishi's greatest achievement was 'the attainment of the state of supreme enlightenment—Unity Consciousness,' and that 'this single achievement alone was enough to transform the whole nature of human life on earth,' Dr Morris continued,
'Maharishi went on to unfold seven advanced techniques of Transcendental Meditation, and then some twenty years later he began teaching another very powerful programme from the Vedic Tradition's Patanjali Yog-Sutra, which he entitled the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme.
'This programme is a set of techniques that allows the individual, having gained Transcendental Consciousness—the silent, self-referral bliss consciousness within—to begin to think or function from that level, to actually live at that level—functioning and operating in that Unified Field level, the unbounded consciousness of their own Self.
'With these techniques, and particularly the most powerful of all called ''Yogic Flying'', Maharishi gave a great, powerful fertilizer to accelerate human life towards the state of enlightenment.
'With all the experiences that came out, even from the first days of his teaching, Maharishi was able to distinctively define seven states of human consciousness for the world—the regular three: waking, sleeping, and dreaming, and four higher states: Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness.
'Maharishi said that another level is—do these techniques together in a group. If you do them in a group, the power will be much more. It will be the n-squared effect: ten people doing it together is like ten squared, or one hundred people doing it alone.
'The power of group practice also leads to great effects on the whole society and the whole nation, because Maharishi, in doing all of this from the very beginning, had not only the goal of enlightenment of the individual in mind. As he said when he began his whole world organization on the 1st of January 1958, his goal was to spiritually regenerate the whole world.
'The shortcut to this he found in groups practising these advanced techniques, including Yogic Flying, together—not a difficult thing, but a joyful thing. It's wonderful to practise these techniques in groups. And now Maharishi has organised worldwide such groups to create waves of coherence that will make the national consciousness of any nation integrated and invincible in their character.'
Global Good News will continue reprinting Dr Morris's Tribute to Maharishi, along with Tributes from other leaders of the Global Country of World Peace, in the coming days.
