During his recent visit to Erfurt, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, toured the building and heard a detailed description of its features and the progress of its construction from the directors.
Participating in this was Dr Christian Schweizer, architect of the Peace Palace, who also developed the pre-cast, all natural, self-insulating wall elements that form its outer walls. This is known as the MERU Master Builder System, designed to be used in all the Maharishi Peace Palaces that will be built around the globe. Dr Schweizer was in the delegation from MERU, Holland, accompanying Dr Morris to Erfurt.
A large group welcomed Dr Morris on his arrival in Erfurt, including founders of the Peace Palace project, directors and teachers of the Transcendental Meditation programme from different parts of Germany, and community members who practise the technique. In the group was Lt Col (Ret) Gunter Chasse, a retired, decorated officer in the German Air Force who is an international expert in the application of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's Invincible Defence Technology.
The central space on the ground floor of the Peace Palace—called the Brahmasthan in Maharishi Vastu architecture—was the setting for a banquet in honour of Dr Morris's visit. During the banquet, Martina Bergmann, one of the founders of the Maharishi Peace Palace in Erfurt, described how the project began, under Maharishi's guidance.
Another guest in the group from MERU, Holland, commented that the Peace Palace's Brahmasthan is the same size as the Brahmasthan of Maharishi's residence in MERU—'a large room, capable of seating more than 100 people comfortably'.
The banquet was also held as a 'pre-inauguration' of the Peace Palace. Construction began 6 October 2011, on the festival of Victory Day in the Vedic calendar—the auspicious date recommended according to Maharishi Vedic Astrology, explained Dr Eckart Stein, one of the directors of the project. The recommended date for the building's inauguration is 24 October 2012, the date Victory Day falls on this year. 'So our Peace Palace is constructed from victory to victory,' Dr Stein said.
Global Good News will continue to feature Dr Stein's recent news of the construction of the Maharishi Peace Palace in Erfurt and Dr Morris's visit to Germany.
