On 23 August 2008, Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam, first ruler of the Global Country of World Peace, addressed the global celebration of the birthday of Total Knowledge, the auspicious Day of Shri Krishna Janmashtami in the Vedic Calendar.

Maharaja commented on how this day exemplifies the intricate intermingling of the qualities of infinite dynamism and infinite silence described in the Vedic Literature and expressed in human physiology; and the secret of Maharishi's administration through Natural Law, whereby total silence administers total action. Following is Part I of Maharaja's address:

'Jai Guru Dev. Krishna is the full value of Vishnu, the full value of that aspect of Natural Law which is infinite dynamism. We know we have Shiva and Vishnu: Shiva is infinite silence, Vishu is infinite dynamism. And Krishna is an expression of the full value of Vishnu in a living reality.' Yet it is interesting to see, Maharaja said, that Vishnu became embodied as Krishna, one of the Avatars described in the Vedic Literature.

Maharaja explained that the Vedic Literature includes a description of ten Avatars, including 'Raam, and Krishna, and all the other Avatars. Krishna comes in the Vedic Literature', Maharaja said, 'of course having a great impact on action, expressing the full value of total Natural Law in dynamism.

'Yet his highest teaching that comes in the Bhagavad-Gita, comes as Krishna, the charioteer, who is teaching and yet not himself involved in the battle. [These are] the intricate qualities of silence and dynamism that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi has brought to light in terms of the fundamental aspects of Natural Law that control the entire creation, dissolution, and maintenance of everything—in terms of the creation of life and also in terms of events and happenings.

'Every event has in it the qualities, as Maharishi beautifully expressed—even [when] you want to move from one place to the other, you have to have the quality, that in which you are, to be terminated so you are no more in that one state where you have been. That is the dissolution of that reality; followed by the creation through the value of Brahma, of a new reality, which is the path [in which] you would move to get to the other state. Now you are in a new creation, you have to establish and maintain it, and keep it alive and lively, and that is the quality of maintenance, the quality of Vishnu.

'It is interesting that the value of dynamism and the value of silence are so intricately intermingled', Maharaja said, so that sometimes one is not able to really differentiate—'is it the quality of silence, is it the quality of dynamism? Because in Krishna's value of teaching: ''Nistraigunyo bhava . . . —Be without the three Gunas,'' and in saying, ''Established in Yoga [Being, pure consciousness], perform action,''* he shows the secret of administration, whereby total silence administers total action.' Maharaja explained that this principle is also 'deeply expressed in the Vedic Literature, that Vishnu is in the heart of Shiva, and Shiva is in the heart of Vishnu.

'Today that brings us this value of infinite dynamism, the incarnation of Vishnu, fully alive in action—yet teaching silence, and teaching withdrawal from action—so that action is fully dynamic on the basis of the infinity of life, infinity of consideration, all values of action.

'Whenever we act in one specific area, we have to take into consideration a number of factors: Why this, why that, what do we need to do, what is the consequence of our action, what brings to us greatest fulfilment? And in this quality of consideration, our result of our actions, of our speech, our management, will depend on the number of variables we are able to hold in our awareness and integrate in order to produce the best possible choice of speech or action for the maximum result.'

In the coming days, Global Good News will feature Part II of Maharaja Adhiraj Raja Raam's address, in which he explains that it is only by being established the field of pure Being, pure silence, that we can take into consideration the totality of Natural Law in any decision making, any speech, any action.

* Maharaja is referring to Maharishi's translation and commentary on Chapter 2, verses 45 and 48 of the Bhagavad-Gita. Maharishi explains that the entire creation consists of the interplay of the three Gunas, the forces that constitute life in the relative field of activity, and which carry out the process of evolution; Yoga is the state of Union, the integration of individual intelligence with cosmic intelligence.
