While addressing the world media in his weekly press conference, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Global Country of World Peace has said that after years of his Vedic teachings through regular weekly press conferences, he now expects the world media to reflect on the positive events taking place in the world on societal and administrative levels.
During the press conference, Maharishi was briefed on how peace and harmony has finally come to Asia, particularly in the Indian sub-continent which has been a direct outcome of the Mahayagyas and Anushthans being performed by the Vedic experts in India.
One of the significant developments in Asia is that, for the first time, India and China have come together, almost achieving a breakthrough in their long-standing border disputes. The statement of Chinese premier Wen Jaibao who recently visited India is very significant - that India and China are not rivals, but they are nations trying to help each other in many areas. This news was displayed prominently in India and China, and throughout the world press.
Other major positive developments reflected in the media have taken place on the rapidly evolving peace process between India and Pakistan. The bus service started between Srinagar (India) and Muzzafarabad (Pakistan Occupied Kashmir) is a watershed in bilateral relations between the two nations. Also significant is the new agreement on the gas pipeline issue. The statement of Pakistani President Pervez Musharraf who is arriving in New Delhi today that the Line of Control (LoC) between the two nations could be turned into `soft border' has also helped clear the political climate.
Maharishi was also briefed about the media reports on the peace and harmony returning to West Asia and other gulf countries. Interestingly, all these developments have taken place since Maharishi took the resolve to establish permanent world peace through Yagyas and Anushthans.
Addressing the press conference, Maharishi said those who can not have the opportunity to witness these Vedic routines can experience them through the Peace Government whicch has been established in as many as 108 countries.
Hitting out at the concepts of democracy and human rights, Maharishi said that these ideas in the name of liberty and secularism are causing divisions in society by creating different opinions. 'The chief aim of any administration is to bring order to the society and not disorder,' he said.
He said that now he is not bothered about ignorance of his programmes at the political level. He has succeeded in creating an impact by bringing peace and harmony to society. He said peace does not only mean the end of conflicts, but the end to every wrong done in the society. 'It also means good health, good education, and good living', he added.
