During its inaugural session, the recent global Guru Purnima Assembly in MERU, Holland, enjoyed viewing the video of a historic address by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, from the Guru Purnima celebration in 1990.
Please see Global Good News article, 'Global Guru Purnima Assembly convenes'.
Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, explained in the evening session on 4 July 2009 that during the five-day Assembly, each day's programme would include videotapes of Maharishi's historic Guru Purnima addresses from previous years.
The first session began with Maharishi's address from Guru Purnima on 7 July 1990. Following the video, Dr Morris summarized and commented on Maharishi's address:
'It was a global joy of Guru Purnima in 1990, that Maharishi performed global Puja [Vedic ceremony of gratitude] to Guru Dev*, with all the Transcendental Meditation Teachers around the world joined with him . . . .
'Maharishi felt very fulfilled on that day . . . to offer to Guru Dev mounting achievements of his worldwide organization, and also deepening experiences coming through the practice of Transcendental Meditation, Advanced Techniques, and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme, and the field effect created by the collective practice' of these programmes.
'We should note that at this time,' Dr Morris continued, 'through that collective practice, Maharishi was alluding to dramatic changes in the whole world that were happening at that very moment—the end of the Cold War, and the division of the world into warring factions, warring camps on a massive scale.
'Maharishi was reflecting on that great upsurge of friendliness and freedom that was going on in the world at that particular time.
'But he also was making another offering, and that was a programme—in the sequence of programmes that he had been offering to Guru Dev year after year, through all the history of his activity in the world. This was a programme that would make everyone in the world feel, ''I am living in Heaven.''
'Already, great purification of world consciousness had taken place. But now, at this moment, Maharishi wanted to offer a programme for perfection in every profession to dawn—so that no profession in the world would have any problems or suffering of any kind.
'How was this to be achieved? It was through knowledge—knowledge of the Unified Field, knowledge of the invincible and eternal Totality of Natural Law, which administers the whole universe with perfect order. The Unified Field known both from the total Vedic Science—with Veda, Maharishi revealed, known to be actually the Totality of Natural Law in the Unified Field; and not only Vedic knowledge, but modern scientific knowledge of that reality of the Unified Field.
'Furthermore, with that [knowledge], the technologies to experience the Unified Field: Transcendental Meditation, Advanced Techniques, and the Transcendental Meditation Sidhi Programme—so that anyone, in any profession in the world, could align their individual awareness with the Unified Field.
'As a result of that alignment, living and functioning from the level of the Unified Field, they would begin to function with the total support of all the Laws of Nature, to achieve whatever they desired in their profession. [They would thus] make the skillful performance of Nature itself, which administers the whole universe, their own level of skillful performance in their profession.
'Function from the level of the total potential of Natural Law spontaneously—this is the supreme skill in action, Maharishi said. And this knowledge should be brought to every home, and to every heart in the world. This was the offering that came with his performance of Puja to Guru Dev on Guru Purnima Day in 1990.
'This, Maharishi said, will create a fortunate situation in the world, where we have a beautiful, fertile ground for Heaven on Earth.
'Maharishi posed the question: What is the difference between Heaven and earth? He said the difference is that in Heaven, the angels are always blissful, always radiating blissful orderliness. That, he said, is what we want also to be for earth—by everyone functioning on the level of the Unified Field of Natural Law, which is spontaneously nourishing, spontaneously orderly, which emanates blissful order, freedom, and invincibility.
'This was the very beautiful time that he was celebrating on that Guru Purnima, and most especially celebrating the fact that all of this is the gift and blessing of Guru Dev—this knowledge of the Transcendental, self-referral level of Natural Law, the Unified Field and Veda, which is the script of the Unified Field. All the Veda and the Vedic Literature, which are the impulses of that unified intelligence—all this is the gift of Guru Dev, and [Maharishi said] our offering is to have that reach every home and every heart in the world, so everyone in the world may utilize the total potentiality of Natural Law in every thought of theirs.
'This came out from this global atmosphere of Puja to Guru Dev, launching this global performance, a global activity to dive into the Unified Field and offer perfection to every profession in the world. With this, 2,000 years of suffering coming to an end, and a world flawless, faultless, suffering-free, negativity-free—everything and everyone supported by the invincible evolutionary force of Natural Law, no problems in any profession, and perfection in city life, in national life, and global life.
'This was the very beautiful fortune of the world' that came on Guru Purnima Day, July 1990, Dr Morris concluded.
