The World Federation of Traditional Kings was inaugurated by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the days following his founding of the Global Country of World Peace in 2000, to bring honour and support, and to fulfil the parental role of traditional leaders around the world. The tenth anniversary of the World Federation was celebrated on 24 October 2010.

As part of the celebration, Dr Christopher Crowell, Minister of Religion and Culture for the Global Country of World Peace, showed a special video introduction to the World Federation of Traditional Kings, which has grown to more than 300 members from over 37 countries.

Beautiful, heartfelt messages from Traditional Kings were also presented—from Ghana, USA, Nigeria, Philippines, New Zealand, Cote d'Ivoire, Ukraine, and Canada—expressing the great appreciation of traditional leaders for all Maharishi's initiatives to bring fulfilment to their people, including programmes in the fields of education, health care, organic agriculture, and poverty removal.

A special videotape from November 2000 was replayed of Maharishi's personal invitation to traditional leaders around the world to join the World Federation of Traditional Kings. Maharishi praised the role of traditional leaders of every culture and expressed his desire that they come together in this global organization and create the basis for a more peaceful world.

In his message to the celebration, one Traditional King from Africa said, 'It is with the greatest delight that I congratulate all Traditional Kings the world over for coming together as one people, with a common purpose of development of spiritual and physical aspects of the life of mankind.'

Dr Crowell concluded the tenth anniversary celebration with the comment that with Maharishi's inspiration, the World Federation of Traditional Kings is continuing to grow.

Those who are in contact with traditional leaders and would like information on how they can join this global federation are invited to email:
