The Global Country of World Peace holds its grand global celebration of the full moon day of Guru Purnima on Tuesday, 7 July. This very special day-long celebration will take place in MERU, Holland and at the Global Capital of World Peace in the Brahma-Sthan (geographical centre) of India. In addition, there will be celebrations in countries around the world, connected to and enjoying the live global Internet broadcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3.
The live Internet broadcast begins at 9:10 a.m. Central Europe Time (CET).
The celebration of Guru Purnima Day is the highlight of the global Guru Purnima Assembly in progress in MERU, Holland since 4 July.
Guru Purnima is the day in the Vedic Calendar that is dedicated to honouring the Masters of the eternal Vedic Tradition of knowledge, who throughout time have upheld the supreme wisdom of life. In this generation this wisdom has been brought to the world through the knowledge and programmes of the Vedic Science of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, through the blessings of his Master, Shri Guru Dev*—to bring enlightenment to every individual and invincibility to every nation.
On 4 July, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, announced the programme for Tuesday's celebration, which will begin at the auspicious time of 9:10 a.m. Central Europe Time (CET) with the Rashtriya Geet (anthem of the Global Country of World Peace), followed by global Puja (Vedic ceremony of gratitude) and a videotape of Maharishi's Guru Purnima address from 29 July 2007.
Other highlights of the celebration will include traditional Vedic recitations by Maharishi Vedic Pandits in the Brahma-Sthan of India and in MERU, Holland; and an address by Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace. The first session will conclude with raising the Flag of the Global Country in MERU and around the world—'and everyone may raise the flag of their own nation at the same time', Dr Morris said.
The afternoon session in Holland will begin at approximately 2:00p.m. CET, and the evening session at 8:15p.m. CET, with reports from Rajas, Raj Rajeshwaris, and global Ministers of the Global Country, as well as another videotape of a historic address by Maharishi.
Dr Morris explained that the evening celebration is also planned to connect with Guru Purnima Assemblies in appropriate time zones, particularly in North America, South America, Europe, and Africa. The evening will conclude with a parade to Maharishi's residence in MERU.
The live Internet broadcasts of the MERU Guru Purnima Assembly will continue Wednesday 8 July at 1:15p.m. and 8:15p.m. CET on the Maharishi Channel.
