An article appeared recently in a Polish garden magazine about the beautiful International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland, especially highlighting its Vedic garden.
The Capital has for many years been known as the residence of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace.
The editor of the magazine became interested in publishing an article immediately after she heard about the garden and saw photographs of it.
In the article, entitled 'Looking into Heaven', the introduction says that people who have visited Maharishi's house and garden say that they experienced a taste of Heaven on Earth, inner silence, and spiritual balance.
Dr Wojtek Skalski, Deputy Minister of Vedic architecture for the Global Country of World Peace, and Andre Baron, an architect, wrote the article for the magazine, explaining the Maharishi Sthapatya Veda principles supporting the design and construction of the house and garden.
The authors also wrote about Maharishi's supreme achievements and purpose in the world: enlightenment for the individual, world peace, and invincibility for every nation—in his 50 years teaching and establishing organizations to offer all of his programmes globally.
The article reports that Maharishi's house was designed according to Sthapatya Veda, in which the symmetry of the plans creates an influence of balance and inner integrity. The central axis of the house and the gardens are oriented exactly east-west. 'Turning a building towards the energy of the rising sun,' the article explains, 'gives vitality and synchronizes the life of its inhabitants with cosmic order.'
The first two pages of the article include beautiful photographs showing the front of Maharishi's house and the Brahma-Sthan [auspicious central area] of the garden. Another photograph shows the garden where the flags of 192 countries are flying. The flags are a symbol of a world without borders ruled by peace—the Global Country of World Peace.
Another photograph features the centre of the garden, which one enters through a sequence of symbolic gates. 'In the design of Vastu [Maharishi Sthapatya Veda] buildings and Vastu gardens,' writes co-author Dr Skalski, 'going through gates is going from outer reality into a more inner reality—it's like transcending.'
He explained that, at a seminar on Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, Maharishi once said that it was good to have many gates: it meant going from one reality to another, towards the seat of Total Knowledge of Natural Law in the centre, the Brahma-sthan.
At the entrance gates are two life-size elephants—made of thousands of tiny lights—that guard the garden.
Global Good News will feature a second article about this Polish magazine and Maharishi's garden in the coming days.
