On 9 July 2009, a special presentation on the Maharishi Purusha Capital of the Western World, West Virginia, USA, was broadcast live from MERU, Holland, International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace, and from the Maharishi Patanjali Golden Dome, Fairfield, Iowa, USA.
Please also see Part I and Part II of a Global Good News article from Guru Purnima 2008, which describes Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's vision for the Purusha Capital of the Western World, introduces the leaders of the project, and recounts the process of locating property and drawing a site plan.
Following a detailed introduction to the Maharishi Purusha Capital of the Western World by Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace*, Raja Chancellor, Purusha Raja** of universal domain, who has been an integral member of the project's team, recounted Maharishi's decision to establish the Purusha Capital.
Raja Chancellor said: 'On 1 August 2007, Maharishi began a series of about 20 conference calls with Maharishi Purusha Programme groups around the world, which lasted until the end of that December. On these calls Maharishi poured out knowledge and inspiration in response to the profound experiences of higher states of consciousness' revealed by Purusha.
'Shortly after the start of these calls,' Raja Chancellor continued, 'Maharishi requested 192 Purusha to adopt and silently nourish 192 countries; and when he heard that each of the 192 countries of the world had one Purusha associated with them, he was thrilled, and he inaugurated Purusha's Administration through Silence—Global Raam Raj.' Maharishi then determined that, in order to provide Purusha with the perfect location and atmosphere for attending to their countries, it was necessary to establish the Purusha Capital of the Western World. Maharishi announced his desire to establish the Purusha Capital on 8 September 2007.
Raja Chancellor went on to present slides of the site in West Virginia, and preliminary steps in the construction process. Among the slides were some featuring road construction, the clearing of trees, and beautiful views. In addition, he showed a complete site plan of the Purusha Capital that indicated the location of the residences, dining hall, meditation hall, organic greenhouses, and course facilities.
Following Raja Chancellor's overview, Purusha Raja Rafael David, who has contributed greatly to the building project, discussed upcoming construction plans for the Capital in detail. The most immediate plan, he said, is to house 40 Purusha members at the new Capital within five separate residential buildings—each to hold eight Purusha. 'In this way,' he explained, 'we hope to establish momentum in the project.' Once the road is complete, he continued, construction will begin on the Purusha Raja residential building, which will serve as a palace for Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaram, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, as well as an accommodation for Dr Bevan Morris and Raja John Hagelin, Raja of Invincible America. The construction phase after that, Raja Rafael said, will involve building 10 more residential buildings for Purusha—totaling 15 buildings for 120 Purusha.
* In the coming days, Global Good News will feature a complete account of Dr Bevan Morris's opening speech on this occasion. Upcoming articles in the series will also feature speeches by Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Architecture; Raja Bob LoPinto, Raja of Invincible South Africa and leader of the Purusha Capital project; and finally, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam.
** 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 and to creating world peace, through extended group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme; and through their administration through silence, fulfilling the goals of the Global Country of World Peace in 192 countries. Several members of Purusha are Rajas of the Global Country of World Peace with universal domain.
