On Victory Day, 28 September, Maharishi University of Management (M.U.M.) in Fairfield, Iowa, USA, held its annual Founder's Day celebration, in honour of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, who founded the university in 1971. Dr Bevan Morris, President of M.U.M. and Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, described an early visit to the campus by Maharishi in 1979, during construction of the Golden Domes of Pure Knowledge.
The two Golden Domes at M.U.M. were the first buildings in the world constructed specifically for large group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, including Yogic Flying, to create coherence in national and world consciousness.
In these Domes, large groups of Yogic Flyers have been practising the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme together twice daily for many years. These groups became part of the ongoing Invincible America Assembly, established in 2006 by Maharishi to ensure a permanent influence of harmony and peace in collective consciousness, sufficient to create invincibility for the nation and world peace.
At the Founder's Day celebration, which was replayed on the Maharishi Channel on 21 October, Dr Morris said that when he was appointed Chairman of the M.U.M. Board of Trustees in 1979, Maharishi's first request to them was to build two Golden Domes, which would be 'great particle accelerators of consciousness', in which 1,500 people—the number required at that time for national invincibility—would practise Yogic Flying together in an ideal environment.
Telling many anecdotes about unique circumstances that supported the construction of the first Dome, Dr Morris told of the rise in temperature in the usually extremely cold Midwestern US winter. The outside temperature rose by a remarkable 50 degrees for twenty-four hours, exactly the time needed to pour all the concrete for the floor.
Dr Morris related that during an unexpected two-day visit to the university in December that year, Maharishi met with many different groups, including university faculty and students, and all the entrepreneurs who were creating the first businesses that would support the coherence-creating programme at the university and in the greater Fairfield community.
Finally, before Maharishi left, he wanted to see the progress on the construction of the Domes, which, Dr Morris said, 'were Maharishi's own inspiration for the university, and which completely changed its nature and its role in the world'.
In the coming days, Global Good News will present Maharishi's address to everyone gathered in the framework of the Dome in December 1979.
Dr Morris's address on Founder's Day was replayed on the 21 October Maharishi Global Family Chat, which is broadcast daily via Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3. Podcasts of the daily Global Family Chat (audio track) are also available for automatic download, via an RSS feed.
