MAHARISHI VEDIC CITY, IOWA, USA — The Global Peace Initiative hosted a Vedic Visitors Weekend, November 4 to 6, at Maharishi Vedic City in southeast Iowa in the United States, attracting Indo-Americans from cities as far away as Los Angeles and New York.

All the participants assembled for one purpose: to experience a weekend devoted to peace and all things Vedic, including Vedic health care, Vedic agriculture, and Vedic architecture.

The weekend culminated with Grammy-nominated world music artist, Chandrika Tandon, performing a stunning sold-out benefit concert at the Stephen Sondheim Theatre.

''The combination of different instruments and Chandrika's voice revealed to me what World Music should be all about,'' said Vinod Nayagar, a university student who attended the concert.

''All the sounds emerged from the same source, they resonated and built on each other's vibrations at the subtlest, most blissful level of creation. The sounds were indistinguishable at transcendental moments—they created a harmony and unity from sound, which is the true purpose of music,'' Mr. Nayagar said.

Ramani Ayer, retired CEO of The Hartford Financial Services Group and current Director of Development for the Global Peace Initiative, who served as a host of the weekend, said, ''We invited Indo-Americans from around country to experience how powerful, valuable and relevant the practical application of ancient Vedic wisdom, as developed by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, is to our daily lives and to the improvement of society.''

Global Good News will continue to report on the Vedic Visitors Weekend in Maharishi Vedic CIty, Iowa, which also featured a presentation by Fred Travis, Ph.D., Director of the Center for Brain, Consciousness, and Cognition at Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, who is one of the world's leading researchers on the brain, consciousness, and meditation.
