Broadcast around the world over the Maharishi Channel, the Inauguration of the new Argiro Student Center at Maharishi University of Management, took place in the 300-seat Grand Assembly Hall on 1 February, 2008.
Attended by the university Trustees, and Dr Vincent and Maggie Argiro, the principal donors for the new Student Center, as well as the many faculty and staff, students, and friends of Maharishi University of Management, the inauguration was an 'enormous step forward' in the realization of the goal to completely restructure the university campus according to Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, the principles of architecture that is fully in accord with Natural Law.
Presenting the event on the Maharishi Channel, Dr Bevan Morris, President and Chairman of the Board of Trustees, said that it is also a very basic point [of Maharishi's creation of invincibility for every nation], that America should have a sufficiently large group of young students, both in the Maharishi School and also in Maharishi University of Management, who all practice Yogic Flying together in the Golden Domes every day, creating coherence in US national consciousness.
Dr Morris said that every effort is being made that the number of students present on the campus should increase and increase, so that even from the student population alone there will be a national invincibility group within the University. In order to achieve the expansion of the University in this way, Maharishi advised many years ago that a key point would be to demolish the old campus and build a fresh, new and beautiful campus, all fortune creating buildings. 43 buildings have now been demolished and the process of rebuilding of the campus has been continuing for many years.
'Now today a very auspicious moment came at 11.54 am in Iowa, [when] Vincent and Maggie Argiro—in whose name this building is now going to always be known—stepped through the front, eastern door of the building into the beautiful two-storey marble lobby.'
They were followed in by the university Trustees, the Faculty, staff and students of the university, as well as hundreds of enlightened Yogic Flyers currently attending the Invincible America Assembly on campus. Puja [Vedic ceremony of gratitude] was performed to Guru Dev*, according to the traditional Vedic system of entering and first occupying a new building.
Dr Morris said that the power of the Vastu Effect is going to be so fortunate, not only for the blessed students who are already here dedicated to their Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, along with their professors, the administrators and the Invincible America Assembly, it will also draw more and more people to come and be in this place and be part of the group that Maharishi has been saying all along, is the basic requirement for the United States and for every country in the world.
'This building, which is for the sake of attracting and sustaining large groups of Yogic Flying students,' said Dr Morris, 'alongside the large group of Vedic Pandits**, is really an enormous step forward. Already the report comes of not only the great beauty of the building, but the feeling that everything is now refreshed and new with the power of this largest Vastu building built so far for any college anywhere.'
'So the happiness in the air today has been huge' said Dr Morris. 'Everyone is exhilarated at this great moment. The building stands high up on the hill by the main road so it's visible from everywhere. It is a grand, beautiful building that is now the dominant structure on the whole campus, and is truly a building of such outstanding Vastu qualities and beautiful design that it really is a crowning glory for Consciousness-Based Education in the world today.'
