During the global celebration on 20 November 2007, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, explained that silence functions not through human endeavour, but from surrender from where silence operates. Silence functions beyond any speech, and any thought or desire from that level spontaneously 'comes on our lap.' This confirms that the silence we are engaging in is the right path for us for administering 'a scattered world and putting it on the integrated state of invincibility.'
'Jai Guru Dev. Jai Guru Dev. Jai Guru Dev,' Maharishi began. 'I just want for all the shining leaders of our world Movement, all the Rajas, and all the National Leaders and all the Initiators [Teachers of Transcendental Meditation], I want to present them a secret, and that is to realize and to see how silence functions.
'All that we have been through today and yesterday is not from human endeavor. It is from human surrender from where silence operates. Our Movement, simple, sincere, silent, for all these years, and I just want you all to see how silence functions.
'When silence functions, it is beyond any speech. It is beyond any action. It is spontaneous. It is the spontaneous function of silence. Everything comes to our lap. Everything comes to our lap in the waves of thought, in the waves of our understanding, in the waves of realization. This is how silence functions. And this gives us a real, real, undoubtable proof that the silence, [with] which we are engaging to administer the world affairs, is our right path. It is a pathless path to us.
'Just the thought of ours is good enough to get us what we desire—it spontaneously comes to our lap. This is how we have known today; we have got the proof today that the silence, which we are wanting to administer our scattered world and put it on an integrated state of invincibility, that is going to be truthfully realized by us without much doing because Guru Dev* has given us, again, the effortless technique to let our attention float in the transcendental field where we don't have even to desire.
'So that is the gift of Guru Dev. He has given to us the awareness of that silence where we don't have even to desire. Spontaneously all that we can ever desire from that silence will be on our lap, from now, from today, from tomorrow, from this week, from this month, from this year, for all the time of our human race.'
Maharishi went on to say that Guru Dev has shown the insight into the reality of administration through silence.
'Guru Dev has given us the entry into that area because spontaneously we come into possession of that which can do everything. Everything will be achieved, day after day, as a wave, a fresh wave every day of our administration of silence.
'For this, again and again, we offer Puja [Vedic performance of gratitude] to Guru Dev. Puja is that instrument with us. We perform the Puja and all silence at our disposal . . . will be the fruit of our Puja. It happened to be a day well marked in the Indian Calendar. The day of ''Awakening of all the gods'' (Pravodhani Ekadashi), the day of awakening of all the silent level of administration of the Constitution of the Universe, the Will of God, the Veda.
'With this understanding, that we are so blessed, with this great fulfilment, we are offering ourself to Guru Dev, our Puja to Guru Dev.'
