In a beautiful global web broadcast on 17 October 2009 from MERU, Holland and India, the Global Country of World Peace celebrated the Festival of Lights, Dipavali. Maharishi Vedic Pandits performed special traditional Vedic recitations in honour of this auspicious day in the Vedic Calendar celebrating Mahalakshmi, the administering intelligence of Natural Law to bestow wealth, prosperity, and bliss on every individual and nation in the world; and Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, also addressed the live global celebration.
A highlight of the celebration was the video replay of the historic address by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, on this occasion on 9 November 2007.
Please see 'Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's address to the celebration of Dipawali' for highlights of Maharishi's profound discourse. Maharishi began by saying that
'. . . on this day out of the 365 days of the year dedicated to Maha Lakshmi—the inexhaustible source of affluence—Maha Lakshmi, the source of all orderly, affluent administration of the universe is enlivened in our awareness . . . . The impulse of creativity through the levels of administration of the ever-expanding universe is the Custodian, the Mother of all beings in our universe. The unified state of administration of the versified, infinitely-differentiated, but compactified, universe is unified, on the lap of Mother Divine, Maha Lakshmi Maiyya.
'Fortunate, very fortunate we are. Our fortune today is beyond description, beyond speech. It is on the transcendental level. Fortunately, we are aware on the level of our intellectual understanding and also on the level of our experiential, direct knowledge. We are aware of the source of all order, affluence, integration, and unification of all diversity in Mahalakshmi Maiyya—the Mother Divine of affluence, the affluence of infinite compactified divine bliss, the characteristic quality of the administration of the universe.'
At the start of the 17 October celebration, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, had begun by explaining the significance of the day, and describing the visit of President Joaquim Alberto Chissano, former president of Mozambique, to Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, and neighbouring Maharishi Vedic City, at the time of these auspicious celebrations.
Dr Morris also lauded the celebration of the Festival of Lights, a few days earlier, by US President Barack Obama at the White House—the first such celebration conducted by a US president.
Speaking from the the Global Capital of World Peace at the Brahma-Sthan [geographical centre] of India, Raja Harris Kaplan, Raja of Invincible India for the Global Country, introduced the Maharishi Vedic Pandits at that location, as well as the group of Pandits at the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland. Together, the two groups began their traditional ceremonial recitations, which continued for several hours.
The video of Maharishi's 2007 address was played following the Pandits' recitations. Dr Morris summarized Maharishi's address, and then introduced Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam. Maharaja gave a beautiful address about the significance of Mahalakshmi in light of his discovery, under Maharishi's guidance, of Veda and the Vedic Literature in human physiology.
Raja Harris closed the celebration, expressing profound appreciation for the Vedic Pandits' performance, in light of Maharaja's address.
In the coming days, Global Good News will feature highlights of Maharaja's address, as well as the comments of Dr Morris and Raja Harris.
Video highlights from the 17 October celebration are currently being replayed online, on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3; please check the Maharishi Channel Schedule pages for daily updates.
