On 24 March, Raam Navami, the auspicious day in the Vedic Calendar celebrating the awakening of ideal administration through total Natural Law, planting of hundreds of young fruit and nut trees began on the campus in MERU, Holland of the International Capital of the Global Country of World Peace.
Maharishi Vedic Pandits performed an early morning Vedic ceremony to inaugurate the initiative.
Four hundred trees, which will bear apples, pears, plums, cherries, walnuts, and almonds, are the gift of Maha Raj Rajeshwari, leader of the Global Mother Divine Organization.*
