The Global Country of World Peace held its annual celebration of Victory Day, the auspicious day of Vijaya Dashmi, on 6 October 2011. This special celebration took place in MERU, Holland and at the Capital of World Peace in the Brahmasthan (geographical centre) of India. People in many countries also enjoyed a webcast of the celebration.
Victory Day is the day each year in the Vedic calendar that celebrates the victory of administration based on total Natural Law, the Constitution of the Universe, to promote an ideal, invincible state of life for the people of every country in which 'suffering belongs to no one'.
Thursday's celebration in Holland was attended by Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, honoured by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi as first ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, in an assembly of teachers and administrators of organizations teaching Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Programme in countries around the world.
A highlight of the day's programme, following traditional Vedic recitations by Maharishi Vedic Pandits in the Brahmasthan of India and in MERU, was the video of an address by Maharishi on Victory Day, 21 October 2007.
In that historic address Maharishi gave a beautiful discourse on the qualities of ideal administration, based on establishing the consciousness of the administrator in the silent, self-referral state of Being, the infinite field of pure consciousness at the basis of all his thinking and activity, through Maharishi's technologies of consciousness:
'Self-referral Being is the steady administrative skill of the universe, uni-verse, ever-expanding universe,' Maharishi explained. This is 'that most perfect, most balanced state of administration that upholds infinite diversity of the ever-expanding universe in its steadiness.'
Maharishi described this ideal quality of administration as one encompassing 'Total Knowledge and total organizing power. The characteristic quality of Total Knowledge is total organizing power. The power of Total Knowledge is lively in the power of total action. Action is vibrant, dynamic; knowledge, self-referral silence. And the self-referral value also has its basis in organizing power. It holds onto itself. It holds onto itself. It remains in the self-referral state, in the state of Being, and that Being is directed to itself.'
Maharishi went on to say, 'That system of administration is coming back, and that is the dawn of light, after the long darkness of the night, coming back. . . . Beautiful time for the world is coming. And it's not ''will come''. It is coming. It has started its value. Our aspiration is to quickly establish this most natural system of maintaining order in all our countries in the world.
'Today is the Vijaya Dashami day, the day of victory, victory of the sun over the darkness of the night. It's a beautiful, beautiful fortune of ours' to be celebrating today, Maharishi said.
'Government is meant to govern, and governing is support, growth, maximizing one's status, that is what governing means. And where there is conflict and party fighting, the present and the past of the world has been deleterious as far as the administration is concerned.' Now, however, Maharishi said, 'This most spontaneous value . . . is now coming to be lived in the life of the people throughout the world. . . .
'We are fortunate to have the torchlight in our hand. We are fortunate that we are the engineers of creating the powerhouse. We create the powerhouse and light will be enjoyed by all the people. . . .'
Earlier in that day's celebrations, Maharishi said, 'Very soon, very soon, the history of the world will be different,' with everyone enjoying life in 'the perpetual rays of silence, peace, integrated national consciousness in every country'.
Before the video of Maharishi's 2007 address, the assembly enjoyed a beautiful address by Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam. The celebration included wishes and resolutions for invincible permanent peace, perfect health, progress, prosperity, and good fortune for the people of every nation.
Global Good News will report on Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam's address in the coming days; and also on special wishes that were given at the culmination of today's celebration, for the health, happiness, and enlightenment of mothers and girls throughout the world.
