The grand scale of the first Maharishi Garden Cities project, currently unfolding in St Petersburg, Russia—and the 'expanded thinking' of its Russian builder and architect—inspired high praise from leaders of the Ministry of Architecture of the Global Country of World Peace in MERU, Holland, who are consulting on the project and see no obstacles to its success. They also intend to replicate this plan in cities all over the world.
Dr Christian Schweitzer, architect for the Global Country of World Peace, explained that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi had recommended that they visit Russia with three goals in mind:
1. To study all the classical palaces in Russia, their beauty and harmony.
2. To look for land for Maharishi Peace Palaces.
3. To find land outside St Petersburg—a beautiful city with a lovely seashore and strong culture.
Slides were shown of the palaces of St Petersburg. Dr Schweitzer said that in this project, beautiful homes will be built, using the marble mould system developed by Dr Hans-Egon Kolsdorf, Master Builder of the Global Country of World Peace, so that they are similar to the palaces. Also, a company has been found that builds wooden houses in a very ecological and economical way.
The homes will be very harmonious and attractive for people who are looking for a new investment, Dr Schweitzer said, and he feels the project has a great, successful future.
Dr Vojtek Skalski, Deputy Minister of Architecture, praised the Russian builder and architect who are leading the project, saying that he had been so impressed with the scale of this Russian undertaking.
The Russians have 'such expanded thinking', Dr Skalski said. Many thousands of houses are now being built in Russia, and the Russian delegation and partners who have come forward are now ready to move ahead with the project. They believe in the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda, so 'there are no obstacles to very great success'.
He added that the Ministry of Architecture hopes to repeat the same plan in other countries and that 'this project will be successful because the time is right and the demand is there.'
Dr Eike Hartmann, Minister of Architecture, commented that they are 'looking forward to a great and fruitful cooperation and that there will be many more meetings with the planners for industrial production of homes.' He is very impressed with what has been done so far, and thanked the Russian delegation for their visit to MERU and for joining the Global Country of World Peace in fulfilling Maharishi's plans for Heaven on Earth.
