Speaking 22 July 2008 on Maharishi Global Family Chat as part of the Global Guru Purnima Assembly in MERU, Netherlands, Raja Bob LoPinto, Raja of Invincible South Africa for the Global Country of World Peace, shared the vision of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi for the new Maharishi Purusha* Capital of the Western World, located in West Virginia, USA, and described progress made on the project so far.
In Part I of this article, Raja LoPinto described Maharishi's original vision for the creation of the Purusha Capital of the Western World. He also gave details of his and Randall Ashelman's endeavours to locate property for the Purusha Capital. Continuing his report, Raja LoPinto described the process of site planning and building design.
Shortly after the property search was completed, in October of 2007, Maharishi asked Dr Eike Hartmann, Global Minister of Vedic Architecture for the Global Country of World Peace; and Dr Roger Audet, Surveyor General, to spend a week or so helping with site planning and building design. 'For the next four months, Dr Hartmann, Dr Audet, Mr Ashelman, and I worked through the details of the project, checking in with Maharishi every few days,' said Raja LoPinto. 'Maharishi proceeded to guide us through every aspect of planning, including location and arrangement of buildings, floor plans, living quarters of Purusha and Computer Masters [described in Part I], among many other details.'
The team has already acquired 105 acres [42.5 hectares] of land, and plans to acquire an additional 65 acres [26 hectares] in several weeks. They are also looking to add an adjoining 180 acres [73 hectares], which would yield a total of 350: plenty of room for current needs and future expansion.
After finalizing building design and road engineering, the group plans to construct the first residential building, to house eight Purusha, in the coming months. 'We will use this as a test house, to ensure everything is working properly so that we can make necessary refinements,' explained Raja LoPinto. They will then quickly build another 14 residences, as well dining and Yogic Flying facilities. 'Our hope is that, within nine months, we will be able to house 120 Purusha, along with accompanying Computer Masters and potential guests.'
In conclusion, Raja LoPinto expressed his great delight in realizing Maharishi's vision for the Purusha Capital of the Western World.
* Maharishi has explained that Purusha means the Self, the quality of infinite silence of the Unified Field of Natural Law. The Maharishi Purusha Programme was designed by Maharishi for men who wish to dedicate themselves fulltime to the most rapid pace of evolution and creating world peace. This is accomplished through the extended group practice of the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and through their administration through silence, fulfilling the goals of the Global Country of World Peace in 192 countries of the world.
