Speaking 25 July 2008 on Maharishi Global Family Chat as part of the Global Guru Purnima Assembly in MERU, Netherlands, Raja Tom Stanley, Raja of Invincible Ireland for the Global Country of World Peace, reported on an easing of tension among opposing political and social factions in Ireland, due to the influence of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, and his programmes.

'Ireland has long suffered from disunity,' began Raja Stanley, 'including divisions between North and South, Catholics and Protestants, as well as many other historic and deeply entrenched divisions.' Having dealt with these conflicts for many years, National Directors Dr Andrea and Dr Gerry Gribbin eagerly took Maharishi's advice to begin construction of Vastu homes and institutions.

After tearing their own house down, replacing it with a perfect Vastu home, the Gribbins persisted in search of land for a Maharishi Peace Palace in Belfast, a centre of the nation's violence. Remarkably, they found a plot only a 10-minute walk from the heart of Belfast, and adjacent to the neighborhood having suffered the majority of conflict in Northern Ireland.

'The mere acquisition of this property by the Global Country of World Peace, as well as Maharishi's strong focus on the project, created such a profound positive influence in the environment that Maharishi said during a phone call, "The troubles are over in Northern Ireland, and will not come again."

Raja Stanley himself witnessed the effects of this deep transformation when he visited the Shank Hill Community Association, within the violence-ridden neighborhood adjacent to the new Peace Palace. 'We met with a group of men, a large number of whom were carrying guns for the paramilitary,' he said. 'However, just last November, this group put its arms beyond use of the association's common membership.' Not only did the men put their weapons away, but they began speaking to their enemies, in effort to reconcile generations of conflict. Putting their differences aside, the opposing groups now wished to celebrate their common cultural heritage. 'Although they will maintain their differences—Protestant and Catholic, Nationalist and Loyalist—the groups now wish to live together in unity and harmony.

'Maharishi has created this influence throughout the world,' said Raja Stanley in closing. 'And how does this happen? Through Brahm, which is the unity and wholeness on the level of infinite silence, and dynamism within silence. In the Brahm Sutras we read: "Brahm is the devourer of all diversity."'
