On 9 February 2005 Aachene Nachrichten reported:
At the point where the three countries of Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands meet, 14 new Kings of Maharishi's Movement are being crowned in a 7-day-long ceremony.
It is a joy for Global Good News service to feature this news, which indicates the success of the life-supporting programmes Maharishi has designed to bring
fulfilment to the field of government.
The article appeared in one of the main newspapers of Aachen, the German city located just a few minutes from the so-called 'Dreilaenderpunkt', the hill where the borders of Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands intersect. Aachen was for centuries the city where the German emperors were crowned.
The following are some highlights of the article, translated from the original German:
'On the highest point of the Netherlands, two big tents have been erected, of course with permission of the town of Vaals, making it obvious that the worldwide organization of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has a firm foothold in the south of the Netherlands.
'In front of the Labyrinth', a tourist attraction at this spot, 'the flag of the Global Country of World Peace was recently raised, a flag with a friendly yellow and red stylized sun. The flag is also displayed by some of the 10 luxury American-made limousines, which are up to 9 metres long and responsible for transporting the 14 Rajas (Kings), who are being coronated at the Dreilaenderpunkt. For a year they have been training in the Limburger town of Vlodrop, and now they are about to spread their Guru's teaching throughout the world.
'On a purple throne with gold arms sits Raja Raam in a tent; next to him on the stage are the men, together with their wives, who are being raised to the position of leadership. Via video connection from India reverberate the Vedic verses, which have been passed from father to son through thousands of years in a language that precedes Sanskrit, chanted by Pandits (priests) in a TM compound near Delhi.
The article goes on to quote Ric Jung, the new manager of the Labyrinth Dreilandenpunt BV, as saying: 'It's important for us to spread this teaching to the whole world,' and the article continues, 'Raja Raam, clearly the leading head after the graying Maharishi, who only rarely allows himself to be seen in public, has proved that the Vedic Laws of Nature can be found in the human physiology.
'So the Transcendentalists have no reason to hide themselves: Over the highest point of the Netherlands on Tuesday two airplanes flew almost without interruption pulling large banners with slogans like 'Raja Raam' and 'World Peace'. Two bagpipers lead a short procession, while the 10 limousines with darkened windows aroused quite a bit of astonishment and questioning faces in the nearby tourists. And for Sunday, a procession led by an elephant is planned, the heavyweight being on short-term loan from a circus.
'The mood is positive, says manager Ric Jung, which he says explains the predominant colours, mostly bright white or beige, ranging into festive shades of red. He explains the whole paraphernalia, with floral splendour, big cars, and bagpipe music, with the following analogy: ''When one marries, one does a similar thing.'' '
Every day Global Good News documents the rise of a better quality of life dawning in the world and highlights the need for introducing Natural Law based—Total
Knowledge based—programmes to bring the support of Nature to every individual, raise the quality of life of every society, and create a lasting state of world peace.
