The Global Country of World Peace recently celebrated Raksha Bandhan, the Vedic celebration of the Day of Protection of Relatives. Introducing the celebration, Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of India for the Global Country, explained the significance of the celebration and briefly reviewed Maharishi's address from the celebration of this auspicious day in the Vedic calendar in August 2007.
Raja Harris said that it is the great fortune of this time that we can enjoy the Vedic calendar; he expressed gratitude to Maharishi and to Guru Dev* for restoring the Vedic tradition and Vedic knowledge in its completeness and purity, and making it available to the whole world.
He explained that the real significance of this festival of protection was the protection from the level of the Self, from the level of Atma. This protection is not on the level of a big house or big armaments, or some wealth in the bank, he said. 'It comes from the eternal wealth of the Cosmic bank; it comes from the wealth of total Natural Law; it comes from the level of invincibility.'
Raja Harris highlighted several points from Maharishi's address on Raksha Bandhan in 2007. Maharishi said that every offering he made during the Vedic ceremony of gratitude was on behalf of all six billion people in the world. He said that Guru Dev has given to us . . . the infinite organizing power of Nature, embedded in Atma, the Self, and Atma as Atma, is the same Atma for all six billion people.
'That is our field of Being,' Maharishi said. 'That is our field of performing; that is our field of becoming. So in and out, Atma, Oneness, Unity, grand Unity—in the Vedic terminology Brahm, Totality.'
Raja Harris invited the Maharishi Vedic Pandits in MERU, Holland, whom he described as the representatives of the thousands of Vedic Pandits in India and around the world, to begin the special Vedic performance for Raksha Bandhan.
