On Tuesday, 12 January 2010, the Global Country of World Peace held its annual grand, global celebration, inaugurating Maharishi's Third Year of Invincibility - Global Raam Raj. The celebration was conducted at the International Capital of the Global Country in MERU, Holland, and at the Global Capital of World Peace at the Brahmasthan (geographical centre) of India.
National celebrations were also held in Maharishi Invincibility Centres* around the world, with Teachers and practitioners of the Transcendental Meditation Programme connecting to the global festivities via live Internet webcast on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3.
The celebration was held in the august presence of Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam, First Ruler of the Global Country of World Peace. The brilliant Assembly of Rajas, Raj Rajeshwaris,** Ministers and National Directors in Maharaja's global administration inaugurated the new year programme, honouring the supreme achievements of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Founder of the Global Country of World Peace, whose invincible knowledge of total Natural Law and practical programmes are transforming the world to be Raam Raj, Heaven on Earth.
The 12 January celebration was broadcast live, in three sessions throughout the day on the Maharishi Channel, Channel 3.

At the start of the first session, the Raja of Invincible India, Raja Harris Kaplan, speaking from 'the Brahmasthan of India, in a sea of 1,000 Maharishi Vedic Pandits,' warmly welcomed everyone and inaugurated the celebration honouring Maharishi, his Master Guru Dev,*** and the eternal Vedic Tradition of knowledge—which 'gave us the techniques and the knowledge to experience Veda (Total Knowledge of Natural Law) itself; and to understand that through that experience, Veda is nothing other than ourselves.' Raja Harris invited the Vedic Pandits in India and in the Brahmasthan of Maharishi's residence in MERU to begin the celebration with Puja (traditional Vedic ceremony of gratitude) to Guru Dev, and then to perform special traditional Vedic recitations for the day.
Raja John Hagelin, Raja of Invincible America, hosted the rest of the 12 January global celebration from the Brahmasthan of Maharishi's residence in MERU. A great highlight of the first session was the video replay of Maharishi's beautiful, historic address on 11 January 2008, in which he reflected on the past, present, and future of his global organization and the source of all achievements. (* Please see 'Global assembly enjoys historic address' for highlights and quotes from Maharishi's historic address from 11 January 2008.)
At the culmination of the first main session, Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam gave a beautiful address in honour of the day. Maharaja's address will be featured in a special Global Good News series in coming days.
Following the replay of Maharishi's 11 January 2008 address, Raja Hagelin spoke eloquently of Maharishi's achievements and gifts to the entire world family, and also about Maharaja Adhiraj Rajaraam as he invited Maharaja to address the global celebration.
As the second session began, Maharaja raised the Flag of Invincibility in front of Maharishi's residence in MERU, Holland, in a ceremony of great jubilation, while similar flag-raising ceremonies were being held around the world.
Commenting on Maharishi's 11 January 2008 address, Dr Bevan Morris, Prime Minister of the Global Country of World Peace, addressed the celebration from Maharishi Vedic City, USA. 'We are all today globally celebrating His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, whose achievements are unparalleled in the field of experience of higher states of consciousness, in the unfoldment of Total Knowledge, and its masterful application to change the very nature of life on earth from suffering to bliss—who has been in the world the agent of time itself, to transform the age of ignorance into the age of Heaven on Earth,' Dr Morris said. He expressed everyone's deep gratitude 'to Maharishi for his compassionate care and teaching of each one of us individually, and for the whole human race'.
The Assembly also enjoyed in the second session the presentation of Dr Benjamin Feldman, Minister of Finance and Planning of the Global Country of World Peace.
The second session closed with the blessing of wishes from the Maha Raj Rajeshwari. Maharishi honoured the Maha Raj Rajeshwari as Mother of the World Movement, and Mother of the World. In her wishes, the Maha Raj Rajeshwari presented the beautiful Vedic blessing which was expressed by Maharishi 35 years ago, on 12 January 1975, when he inaugurated the Dawn of the Age of Enlightenment for all mankind:
'May the good belong to all the people in the world.
May the rulers go by the path of justice.
May the best of men and their source always prove to be a blessing.
May all the world rejoice in happiness.
May rain come in time and plentifulness be on Earth.
May this world be free from suffering and the noble ones be free from fears.'
In the evening session, broadcast on Maharishi Global Family Chat, Raja Hagelin, on behalf of the Assembly, honoured Dr Howard Settle for his outstanding leadership in establishing and generously supporting the group of 2,000 Yogic Flying Vedic Pandits and other Yogic Flyers from all over North America, participating since 2006 in the Invincible America Assembly in Maharishi Vedic City and Fairfield, Iowa, USA—creating coherence, harmony, and bliss in the national consciousness of the United States.
Dr Girish Varma, National Director of the Global Country of World Peace for Invincible India, addressed the assembly via videotape, in a very full and comprehensive presentation recounting the many achievements and plans for realizing Maharishi's grand programme for India, Land of the eternal Vedic Tradition of knowledge, as the central core of Maharishi's global administration through silence.*****

Following Dr Varma's address, Raja Steven Rubin, Raja of Invincible China spoke, and the Raj Rajeshwaris closed the day's celebration, giving very beautiful, inspiring wishes for the new year.
