The fulfilment of the good luck of all the people of California is in the hands of the Teachers of Transcendental Meditation in that state, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, said recently. Maharishi was speaking from MERU, Holland to a large assembly in California at the Ramona Peace Palace.
Dr John Konhaus, Raja (Administrator) of Southwest Vedic America for the Global Country of World Peace, described Maharishi's address in a recent report on progress in California that also included the inauguration of two new Peace Palaces.
Dr Konhaus said that Maharishi spoke to the group about who really governs. Maharishi told them that it is their responsibility to govern the state; that the rain that came as the Teachers began their course and their practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi Programme Programme together, ending a long-standing drought, was a great sign from Nature; and that changes in favour of light and progress are in their hands. 'You have control over the seasons . . . through Yogic Flying. . . . Everything that should happen is happening. You are the governors of the universe. The Governors of the Age of Enlightenment [TM Teachers] know how to govern.'
Maharishi asked about the governor of the state of California, and said that he can never rule the state based on the intellect, repeating his message, 'You are the governors of California . . . with a law that is not made by man. You are the more thorough, complete . . . real rulers of the territory. . . . All the governing capability is in your awareness.'
Maharishi urged them to have a permanent group of Yogic Flyers as soon as possible—and the bigger, the better. 'The fulfilment of the good luck of all the people of California is in your hands. . . . You have enough practising; now you must practise in groups. . . . You have the key to serve the will of God. Have a flying hall in each locality for the effect of deeper experiences in larger groups. . . .' He asked them to tell everyone that at that Assembly he had given them a new 'mantra' in three words—'practise in groups'; and to do that, and also to live, in Vastu [buildings designed according to Maharishi Sthapatya Veda].
Dr Konhaus said that because they had quickly outgrown the Ramona Peace Palace, previously inaugurated as their administrative centre, they have chosen a new location on which to build a 'second, huge Peace Palace with 30 bedrooms, overlooking a 2,000 acre national forest'.
Further, they recently inaugurated a third Peace Palace near San Diego, with some 75 local Yogic Flyers, Teachers, and practitioners of Transcendental Meditation in attendance. Two bronze plaques were installed—one commemorating the 30 individuals who generously supported the building, and the other to honour the revered founders of the Spiritual Regeneration Movement of America (the first organization Maharishi founded to offer his programmes in the world) who welcomed and supported Maharishi when he first came to the United States many years ago. One member of that group called to tell stories of those early days, Dr Konhaus said, and 'everyone felt very connected to the past founders'.
Closing with two more items of good news, Dr Konhaus related that in San Diego county, where they now have two Peace Palaces, the crime rate is the lowest it has been in ten years; and in one city in another county, where they have a major Transcendental Meditation Centre and some 350 students practising Maharishi's techniques, the crime rate has also dropped. 'Keep on building Peace Palaces!' he concluded, 'That's the joy!'
