During a recent Global Family Chat, Dr John Konhaus, Raja of Invincible Japan, relayed the words of Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam to the Rajas of the Global Country of World Peace.
Raja Konhaus said that he counted it as the highest blessing just to be in this global family with the leaders of Maharishi's Movement—all the Rajas and Ministers of the Global Country of World Peace, and all of the Teachers of Transcendental Meditation and Yogic Flyers around the world. 'We are a global family that can easily and enjoyably accomplish what Maharishi has given us to accomplish,' he said.
Raja Konhaus went on to share with everyone the thoughts and feelings of Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam, expressed in a meeting with the global Ministers and Rajas, about how the new process of global administration is unfolding.
Raja Konhaus said he felt 'it was a very historic meeting, because Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam outlined to us his vision and his understanding of how the Movement would unfold now to fulfil all of the goals that Maharishi has given us.'
Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam said he felt that 'we were all channels now for bringing Maharishi into the world. He said that in some very real sense, we're the physical expression of Maharishi himself—not just one Maharishi, but in some sense Maharishi is now expressing himself through all of us. Maharishi has multiplied himself through all of us.' It was a beautiful expression Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam gave, said Raja Konhaus.
Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam said that Maharishi has cultured his own quality in each of us. Patiently, diligently, through his love and his knowledge and his training and his culturing, Maharishi has cultured that quality of himself in all of us. And so 'that value will come to the world now through the whole global family in which Maharishi has recreated himself.'
One conclusion Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam came to from this expression is that we should treat each other with the same love and the same respect that we treated Maharishi. 'The reason for that was we are seeing Maharishi in each other, and therefore that Maharishi deserves all of our love and respect and support,' Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam had said.
Raja Konhaus said that Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam had also assured the Rajas that through them and through all the Transcendental Meditation Teachers and Yogic Flyers of the world, through all the great projects, all the great Centres, all the precious people that Maharishi has so carefully cultured—Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam gave his assurance that he would ensure that all of these will now be brought to a beautiful fulfilment.
Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam said that he saw everyone as a kind of 'great engine'—a great engine for Maharishi—that was going to start now to move and bring fulfilment to the Movement. . . . Raja Konhaus added, 'All of the Rajas felt the great confidence in [Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam's] leadership and a great admiration for what Maharishi had created in him.'
Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam said that he feels the continuity of the Vedic Tradition; he feels the strength, and he feels Maharishi's support and guidance to be able to lead the Movement. So, Raja Konhaus said, 'For me today, and all of the Rajas it was a very strengthening and comforting time to know that together Maharaja feels we can accomplish this.'
Raja Konhaus went on to say that he felt that Maharishi was now the expression of pure Gyan Shakti [Pure Knowledge] the infinite supporting basis of all action, which is Kriya Shakti. Through his focus on Gyan Shakti Maharishi wanted to support and bring to fulfilment all our actions now, all our expressions of Kriya Shakti, and to do this he is enlivening the value of Gyan Shakti in us and in the collective consciousness of the entire world.
'And when Maharishi embodied the field of pure Gyan Shakti, what naturally happened to us? All of us, every Meditator and Yogic Flyer and Transcendental Meditation Teacher [who were] trained to be a link to him or to have a link with him—I think all of us have felt that Gyan Shakti became so much more lively in our lives, and now our action is so much more powerful. Somehow the whole thing has come onto silent automatic administration. All the Rajas are reporting that everywhere in their countries things are going miraculously well.'
Raja Konhaus said he had received a report from Japan where 100 top business leaders had gathered in Tokyo to pay tribute to Maharishi and to honour his work and the role that he has played in their lives and in creating an Invincible Japan.
And in India, at the University of Allahabad, where Maharishi was a student many years ago, presentations were made recently by some of the Rajas and the local Indian Movement's administration. The university has now expressed its desire to introduce Maharishi's knowledge, the Transcendental Meditation and Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme to all of their 25,000 students.
'So in a few days,' said Raja Konhaus, 'we gained . . . so much more support in the world. This is Maharishi's Gyan Shakti supporting the world of Kriya Shakti.
Finally Raja Konhaus expressed the wish that 'we always feel—and that we always deserve to feel that we're doing justice to what Maharishi has given us. . . . Maharishi would always say that now we have accomplished this. Now we have done some justice to what Guru Dev has given us.
'So I want all of us to have that feeling,' said Raja Konhaus. 'I want that to guide our lives: that we feel that whatever we're doing in our lives, it's doing justice to the purity and completeness of the knowledge that Maharishi has given us. . . .
'There will come a time in our own lives, I'm sure, when we'll feel we've done this service to Maharishi now. ''Our work is done, we've finished; we've completed our work.'' Just as Maharishi was able to say of his life, that he has done justice to what Guru Dev gave him, I hope we can all feel we've done justice to what Maharishi has given us.'
