On Thursday, 24 November, the traditional American holiday of Thanksgiving was honoured with the webcast of a historic address given by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on Thanksgiving Day in 1983.
Maharishi was visiting the College of Natural Law in Washington, DC, and on 24 November (also the date of Thanksgiving that year) gave a beautiful three-hour address, in which he praised America as the most creative country in the world, with its roots in the infinite creativity of the Unified Field of all the laws of nature, the source of all creation. He went on to give a profound discourse encompassing the total range of knowledge of his Vedic Science and technologies of consciousness.
Maharishi's address was entitled:
Maharishi's Thanksgiving address
A day of renewal and revitalization
The ocean of life flows within itself, from infinity to a point in a cosmic self-referral pattern, displaying all possible basic values of relationships in the whole range of Vedic literature.

Washington, DC, USA
Maharishi began his address by saying:
'We give thanks to the source of creation, to the source of human race, to the source of this generation, to the ancestors of our nation—to our forefathers, to our parents. So Thanksgiving Day, a very special celebration of this most creative country of the world.
'Being the most creative country of the world, it has its roots in the process of deriving from the infinite creativity, the source of all creation, the Unified Field of all the laws of nature. And this day, Thanksgiving Day in America, is more special particularly today, in the history of all the other days of celebration in the past and future, because this is the day of the year of the Unified Field.
'We have been celebrating this year, the year of the Unified Field throughout the world, and now we are in a country which is the product and, as such, the embodiment of creativity in the world. The expression of creativity in the world is maximum here, and during this year of the Unified Field, to get the opportunity to celebrate the process of rejuvenation, the process of revitalization which is in the structure of today's celebration.
'Thanksgiving is a process of revitalization, is a process of reconstruction, is a process of eliminating all that is unwanted, and renewing and imbibing all that is necessary for rapid progress and fulfilment.
'So this Thanksgiving during the Unified Field year—both these together bring to us a very great vitality in intelligence and in strength, and with this we see the onset of the Unified Field based civilization. Thanksgiving Day of the year of the Unified Field gives us a vision of the onset of the Unified Field based civilization.'
