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. To open the event, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country, gave a detailed introduction to the grand project of establishing the Purusha Capital.
Please also see Part I and Part II of the Global Good News article summarizing this special presentation.
In his opening remarks, Dr Morris first reflected on the main reasons Maharishi Mahesh Yogi planned for the Purusha Capital of the Western World, as well as the criteria Maharishi devised for the project. 'In August 2007,' he began, 'Maharishi decided to locate somewhere in the world that would be very comfortable and beautiful for the Maharishi Purusha Programme* to have their capital. This was, firstly, because he had given both Purusha and the Mother Divine Programme the charge that they should quietly attend, for one hour a day, to all the 192 countries of the world; and they would be doing this from their own silent status in self-referral Being, in unbounded bliss consciousness.
'They would be attending to each nation of the world, so one Purusha for each nation of the world,' Dr Morris explained. 'And the result of this would be that the country would enjoy a great nourishment from the level of silence; and groups of Yogic Flyers, especially Purusha, would arise in all countries in the world to secure invincibility for every nation.
'The second point about this capital,' Dr Morris explained, 'was that Maharishi said very touchingly, that he realized his work had been greatly delayed, because he never had a proper place to live—until these last years of his life here in this house [in MERU]. So over the first decades of his work, the lack of a proper auspicious place to work had really slowed down his progress in achieving the dawn of a Golden Age for the human race. And he said very sweetly [to Purusha]: I just don't want you to go through that—what I went through. You should have a place, I want to give you a place.
'So for these two reasons: to have a seat for Purusha's silent administration of all 192 countries from within the majesty of their own Self, and also that they should live within Vastu—this was Maharishi's inspiration for locating an ideal place. So he asked . . . What would be the nicest place in the US for Purusha to live together in such a capital? The criteria were that it should have beautiful long-range views; should be silent and isolated and protected; the climate should be as pleasant as possible; and it should be possible to build there everything that should be required.
'[The requirements] turned out not to be just a beautiful suite for Purusha members—192 seats for 192 Purusha attending to the world,' Dr Morris continued, '—but along with that, two suites for two Computer Masters, who would support Purusha in this work, providing to them all the information, news, geography, history of that country—every detail would be provided by two Computer Masters to Purusha for one hour a day.
'There would be an exhibition area, where they could go and see all the exhibitions of their nation—to know it and to love it—never to contact it, but just to be that quiet transcendental support to the activity of the Raja of the nation in bringing invincibility to national life.
'But not only those two more suites, but yet another suite: Maharishi wanted to have a representative of each country in the world to come and live with Purusha, and be inspired—many of them certainly to become Purusha themselves and to start Purusha groups in their own countries.
'So actually the Capital would have 192 multiplied by four: One for the original Purusha founding this programme, one for each of two Computer Masters, and one for a guest. And in addition to all this Maharishi wanted this to be a great seat in the world of Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, the embodiment of Purushottama—Supreme Purusha [the Self, Totality]. And also [Maharishi planned] that the Raja of Invincible America, Raja John Hagelin, should have his seat there in the midst of all the Purusha Rajas of the world. So this would be a grand centre for administration of the world through silence,' Dr Morris said.
Global Good News will feature the rest of Dr Bevan Morris' opening remarks in the coming days.
* 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 of the world. Several members of Purusha are Rajas of the Global Country of World Peace with universal domain.
