A large number of people from across Germany recently gathered at the Maharishi Peace Palace in Erfurt, Germany, to welcome a delegation of distinguished visitors from MERU, Holland. The Erfurt Peace Palace has been under construction since October 2011, and is now in the final stages of completion, in preparation for its grand opening on 24 October.
The gathering was held in the as yet unfinished central interior space, called the Brahmasthan in Maharishi Vastu architecture—which was still far enough along towards completion to provide a pleasant and uplifting venue for the meeting, and to give guests a taste of the benefits of being in a Vastu.* In honouring the visitors, the meeting was also a celebration of the great success engineered by the directors of the project.
Several of the visitors from MERU spoke at the celebration. Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, addressed the gathering of about 50 guests including builders, supporters, and community members practising Transcendental Meditation.
'I'm very honoured to be invited to this great Peace Palace in Erfurt,' Dr Morris said. 'The building is full of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's knowledge,' he said, and it is very fulfilling that this project is coming to fruition. 'It's been done with great care—designed with great care, built with great care—to be a true Fortune-Creating building, bringing everything good to everyone who will teach and work and live in this building.'
Dr Morris extended 'the greatest congratulations to the architect of the building, the builders of the building, the donors to the building, and also to those who will teach here and bring the goal of Maharishi's knowledge to this fortunate city. Thank you all, every one of you who have done this, it's very beautiful.
'This building will be an example that will be followed by other German cities—but also by other cities throughout Europe, and throughout the world. It's a great example to the world, what has been done here.'
Dr Morris went on to give an inspiring overview of the activities of Maharishi's programmes in countries around the world, including news from his tour of 14 African countries earlier this year.
Also speaking at the celebration was Dr Christian Schweizer, architect of the Maharishi Peace Palace in Erfurt. Dr Schweitzer, who is based in MERU and also holds the title Master Builder, presented his plans for the next buildings that could be constructed on the remaining land after the Peace Palace is completed.
Another member of the MERU delegation who spoke was Dr Susie Swan, an expert in Vedic gardens. She highlighted for the audience the importance of having such a garden, designed according to time tested principles of natural law, around the Peace Palace. Maharishi Vedic gardens are described as creating a lively and harmonious environment for individual intelligence to be upheld by nature's intelligence, and a nourishing influence for the building and its activities, extending to the community and nation.
