Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, recently spoke about the tremendous influence of bliss created by the two new Maharishi Peace Palaces on the campus of Maharishi University of Management in Fairfield, Iowa, USA. He especially noted the perfect application of many aspects of the Vedic Tradition of knowledge to ensure that the buildings' design, construction, inauguration, and their new activities would enjoy unlimited success.

Dr Morris spoke of the 'great bliss' that arose from the inaugural speeches of the Raja of Invincible America (Raja John Hagelin*) and Raja Robert Wynne, the Mayor of nearby Maharishi Vedic City, who also has been deeply involved in the realization of the Maharishi Peace Palaces.
'We felt the charge of bliss of the occasion flooding through your voice and your words of blessing today. It was very powerful—instantaneous impact of the feeling of the day, it just came radiating very powerfully through the television, and now spreading all over the world through Maharishi's Global Family Chat, to all our enlightened [Teachers of Transcendental Meditation] watching all over the world.
These two Rajas especially would be feeling so proud of all the achievements unfolding there, Dr Morris said, starting right away with courses in Transcendental Meditation and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, including Yogic Flying. 'We get the feeling, right from the beginning, what it's going to be like. It's very good—well begun is half done,' Dr Morris said, echoing an aphorism well-known to everyone, that Maharishi often said.
The Prime Minister emphasized to everyone that the teaching activities and all of Maharishi's programmes 'are being offered very successfully in the Peace Palace in Fairfield. And of course all the children—from the little tiny children up to the PhD students (at Maharishi School and the University)—are learning Transcendental Meditation under the guidance of Dr Wally Devasier and Dr Alexandra Devasier (Directors of the men's and ladies' Peace Palaces), with all the Teachers helping them there. These Peace Palaces are always going to be full of new young people, and people of all ages, coming to receive all the programmes of Total Knowledge.
'It's a very highly successful, highly active programme. These buildings are going to be completely filled up from now onwards, and the great lighthouses—Beacon Light of enlightenment**—in the world. What a joy that is for all of us,' Dr Morris said.
'We also feel so strongly the great leadership role of Dr Wally Devasier and Dr Alexandra Devasier. We are so proud of both of them. They have focussed continuously, devotedly on this project and have worked out everything on every level of finance and construction, bringing the support of everyone to complete these marvellous buildings, to be their homes for giving out the field of Total Knowledge to the whole enlightened community—not only now, but for all the years and generations to come—the lighthouses of enlightenment for the whole community. Such a beautiful accomplishment.'
Raja Wynne and Dr Maureen Wynne were also lauded for their creativity, accomplishing 'miracles' in arranging the financing and bringing 'such a good friendliness from all the institutions in Iowa and America' to support the project.
In recognizing the devoted, tireless efforts of all who accomplished the project, Dr Morris highlighted the immense contributions of the team who worked with Dr Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and Planning of the Global Country of World Peace, who were instrumental in building the two Peace Palaces: 'Mario, and Mario, and Pepe—and I believe there have been 30 people working day and night for the last weeks to finish the Maharishi Peace Palaces in record time.'
Dr Morris appreciated the presence of Raja Rogers Badgett, who was also honoured that day, Raja Graham de Freitas, Raja Tom Stanley, and Raja Kingsley Brooks, who expressed their good wishes at the inauguration; and thanked Dr Steve Glickman and Dr Rich Boyland for setting up the international video connection, as well as all who helped the Devasiers—'countless volunteers getting everything ready right up to the last second—who are devoted to the teaching of Maharishi's programmes in the Invincible America Assembly community.
'I cannot wait to see these Maharishi Peace Palaces in person, that would be very fulfilling,' the Prime Minister said, concluding. 'It is really just huge joy flooding to us, and we all send our great love and best wishes today on this great auspicious event.'
*World renowned quantum physicist Dr John Hagelin is Raja of Invincible America, and Minister of Science and Technology of the Global Country of World Peace.
**Dr Morris is alluding to the first publication that came out when Maharishi first began teaching Transcendental Meditation throughout India in 1955, 'Beacon Light of the Himalayas'.
