Cultural integrity—the foundation of invincible peace and progress for every nation—was the theme of the November full moon celebration of the Global Mother Divine Organization.*

Sponsored by the GMDO Foundation for Total Knowledge Based Culture, the programme explored profound knowledge of how upholding cultural traditions maintains the life of every nation in accord with Natural Law; and that this role is upheld especially by the mothers of the world.

The goal of the Culture foundation, explained a leader of GMDO in the United States, 'is to uphold cultural integrity—to uphold those time-tested traditions that keep life progressing in increasing values of fulfilment. Each nation, each community, has its specific traditions that allow life to be lived in harmony, balance, and progress.'

She went on to present principles of culture and cultural integrity brought to light by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, in his Vedic Science.

'To live one's culture, one must live according to Natural Law,' she said. 'All activity in Nature begins from the common ground of silence that is found in the mind's settled state of awareness.' Through the Transcendental Meditation Technique, one experiences the settled state of the mind—Transcendental Consciousness, identified in Maharishi's Vedic Science as the home of all the Laws of Nature; and as a result 'our actions become more evolutionary.

'The basis of growth is culture, and the basis of culture is life according to Natural Law,' she continued. 'Cultural integrity means all those values that are necessary in order to live life spontaneously in the direction of evolution. The result of cultural integrity is happiness, affluence, and harmony within a nation, and complete impenetrability from any disturbing influence from outside. Cultural integrity is, therefore, the foundation stone of invincibility of the nation.

'It has also been said that the destiny of a nation is in the hands that rock the cradle. The mothers of the world hold the nation's destiny in their hands because they are the first teachers of the coming generation. If the mothers teach the children those values which sustain life in progress, the next generation will lead the nation on the basis of the knowledge of Natural Law, upholding their culture, and thereby maintaining both progress and stability.

'As Maharishi expressed, ''Had he world remained in hands of mothers, the world would never have gone into the ignorance and suffering that it is in today.'' '

Global Good News will continue featuring the November Full Moon celebration of the Global Mother Divine Organization, during which the GMDO Administrator of the US went on to present Maharishi's principle that the destiny of a nation is tied to the destiny of its indigenous people; and described the very fruitful collaboration between GMDO and the indigenous mothers of the world—which was successfully launched with the recent international women's conference in Fairfield, Iowa, USA.

* 'Mother Divine' refers to the nourishing, evolutionary power of Natural Law lively within all of creation and within the silent consciousness of everyone. The Global Mother Divine Organization, established in December 2007, is the ladies' wing of the Global Country of World Peace in 192 countries.
