On 24 May 2006 Here reported:
Plans for a 12,000 square foot Peace Palace are underway in Moncton, Canada. Peace Palaces are planned for 3,000 major cities throughout the world in order to create a worldwide influence of peace.
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 world peace.
Laurent Maltais, PhD, a teacher of Maharishi's Transcendental Meditation Technique and director of the Moncton Peace Palace project, told the press about the TM Technique and also about the local Peace Palace.
The article reports: 'TM, says Laurent, helps clear your mind of the rubble. TM practitioners are calmer, and more at peace with themselves. This inner peace, he says, breeds outer peace: peaceful individuals create peaceful families, and peaceful families foster peaceful countries.'
Mr Maltais has taught Transcendental Meditation to hundreds of people in New Brunswick.
According to the article, numerous scientific studies not only show benefits for the individual, but also support the concept 'that world peace can be achieved through meditation'.
The article includes a quote from Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, founder of the Transcendental Meditation Technique and the Global Country of World Peace: 'Palaces of Peace will be built to glorify the 3,000 major cities of the world. Every Peace Palace will be cherished by the people of the city and people around the globe for its noble influence of peace in the world in this generation and for all generations to come.'
Maltais told the press: 'The exterior of the palace will be marble. Inside, there will be two spas: one a women's, the other a men's, as well as offices for members of the Global Country of World Peace.'
The article expresses some skepticism: 'To most of us world peace sounds like a nice idea—a pleasant dream, really.' However, the article goes on to say that 'To the members of the Global Country of World Peace, world peace isn't just a dream: it's an achievable reality. And these are well-spoken, well-educated people.'
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.
