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 in MERU, Holland on 7 February 2008.
Dr Morris continued,
'Maharishi, from his level of Unity Consciousness**, extended the level of intellectual understanding of the Veda and Vedic Literature of India, which are not some philosophy or religion, as the invaders of India had claimed, but a science of consciousness. Maharishi explained that actually the sounds of the Veda are the reverberations of the Unified Field itself. It interacts with itself, it knows itself, and it begins to flow in itself, to vibrate as sound.
'These sounds have been cognised by the Vedic Rishis through the countless millennia of the Vedic Tradition. So the sounds of the Veda are the sounds of Natural Law itself in their unified state—as Maharishi defined it, the ''Constitution of the Universe'', the total field of the Laws of Nature that administers the ever-expanding universe.
'Like this Maharishi unfolded countless insights into the reality of Veda as the science of the completeness of Natural Law. This unfoldment of the complete vision of Veda and Vedic Literature as the Constitution of the Universe was something unknown for many long centuries in India.
'Further, Maharishi used simple expressions to define that reality, what the Veda is: like Aham Brahmasmi—''I am the Totality''; like Yogastah Kuru Karmani—''Established in the state of Yoga, the Unified Field, perform action''; like Sarvam Khalvidam Brahm—''That all this in creation, every single thing, is that field of Unity, the field of Totality.'''
'Maharishi taught through other expressions, including the Bhagavad-Gita, which showed everyone the experience of the reality of everything, according to the Vedic Rishis. He made clear the reality of this, not by trying to explain the meaning of each word, but by virtue of the sound quality of the Vedic Sounds—the flow of Natural Law guiding the evolution of the universe.
'Another great change that Maharishi brought about was to use scientific research to take the Vedic Science of consciousness out of what Maharishi called the garb of mysticism to the practical level of direct experience, scientific understanding, and scientific research. In 1962, for example, Maharishi was visiting a particle accelerator outside Rome and talking to the physicists about the unity of all the Laws of Nature.
'This vision of a Unified Field of Natural Law&mdah;the dream of Albert Einstein, which has been fulfilled through the work of great quantum physicists such as Dr John Hagelin—now provides a clear theoretical understanding in terms of modern science of all that the Vedic Rishis experienced in the laboratory of their own consciousness throughout all these ages.
'Now more than 600 scientific research studies from 250 different universities and research institutes in 33 countries are collected in seven volumes of collected papers, documenting the practical results of Maharishi's programmes throughout the world. Over 5,000 pages of research have been published in over 100 different scientific journals and funded extensively by the National Institutes of Health of the United States government.
'Right from the beginning, Maharishi wanted to bring out the results of all these practices he was introducing for the development of enlightenment, a completely enlightened human race, and an invincible family of nations living in permanent peace.'
Global Good News will reprint the conclusion of Dr Morris's Tribute to Maharishi from February 2008, along with Tributes from other leaders of the Global Country of World Peace, in the coming days.

** Maharishi explains that beyond the familiar states of waking, dreaming, and sleeping are four higher states of consciousness—Transcendental Consciousness, Cosmic Consciousness, God Consciousness, and Unity Consciousness—each bringing a new dimension of experience, knowledge, and fulfilment.
