Friends of Maharishi: Robert Mugabe, Fidel Castro and Abdurrahman Wahid

(No, this is not a joke. This is an actual press release issued by MUM several years ago.)

Maharishi University of Management,
Holland Celebrates the
Dawn of a New World Order of Peace
—the Rise of Perfection
in World Politics and Economy

Four Nations Identified as Embodying the Cardinal Qualities of an Ideal State

An Historic Day of
Great Celebration for the World

Today, Maharishi University of Management celebrates the dawn of a New World Order of Peace, as demonstrated by the invincibility of President Fidel Castro of Cuba, the freedom of President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe, the Divine Rulership of President Abdurrahman Wahid of Indonesia, and the casting off of corrupt democracy by President Robert Guei of the Ivory Coast.

These four Heads-of-State are four great forerunners of a forthcoming New World Order of Peace.

The present strength of their leadership is the first visible effect of improvement in the administration of nations. Their special qualities of ideal leadership demonstrate a rise in the world of Global Administration through Natural Law, and foreshadow a time soon to come when every nation will be sovereign, self-sufficient and invincible, yet will be united with all other nations in a world family enjoying perpetual peace.

During the past forty years, nine American Presidents have tried to overthrow or kill Fidel Castro, and have failed—he has demonstrated invincibility in the face of a giant nation of vast destructive military power.

President Robert Mugabe has stood firm against the hypocritical threats of Zimbabwe’s former colonial master, and reminded Britain that Zimbabwe is not their colony anymore. He has demonstrated freedom, and stood against the savage depredations of the colonial past.

President Wahid, the first President honored as a saint by his people, has brought into the world of politics the qualities of purity, tolerance, harmony, and devotion to God. He is the First Divine Ruler of Indonesia.

President Guei has thrown off the faulty and corrupt democratic system imposed on so many nations by their former imperial overlords, and which has led only to chaos and plundering of the nation by an elite, while the poor remain pressed under the weight of their misery.

The world is awakening to the reality that the old order is passing, and a New World Order of Peace is dawning. The new order will be characterized by these very qualities of the four Presidents—invincibility, freedom, divine rule, and the transformation of corrupt and failing democracies into governments that unify and nourish on the basis of the support of the evolutionary power of Natural Law.

A Sovereign Government Accepts A New Principle for the Eradication of Poverty without Foreign Debt

There is a yet another cause for celebration today—the sovereign government of Zimbabwe has accepted a new principle to eradicate poverty without the need for ruinous foreign loans.

A frank evaluation of the performance of the IMF and World Bank indicates that they have not eradicated poverty at all. But they have overshadowed the sovereignty of nations, placed upon them heavy burdens of debt, and created chaos and social disorder.

Maharishi University of Management has proposed a new approach to the eradication of poverty—the coupon principle.

In every poor nation there are vast tracts of unused fertile land, which have never been polluted by chemicals. This land could be developed to grow organic food for export to wealthy countries.

To fund this development the government doesn’t need to borrow from abroad. It just issues an alternative currency—a coupon—and loans it to the project for the start-up costs, and to immediately improve the farmer’s housing and living conditions.

The coupon’s validity is restricted to the locale of the project, and it lasts for only a three-year period—and thus inflation is avoided. When the first crop is exported and dollars are earned, the government coupon loan is repaid by the project in dollars. So today’s government issued coupon becomes tomorrow’s dollar in the National Treasury.

The profitable organic food exports will ensure that the poverty of the whole nation is rapidly eliminated, as the world is going to need more and more organic food year after year, because of the pollution of the soil in the wealthy countries.

It is a simple, self-sufficient scheme to eradicate poverty without foreign debt, and today the Ministers of the Government of Zimbabwe have applauded and accepted this principle.

Building Maharishi Vedic University at Mosi-oa-Tunya—Victoria Falls—a New Spiritual Center of Africa

There is yet one more reason to celebrate today—the signing of an agreement to create the Spiritual Center of Africa at Victoria Falls—Mosi-oa-Tunya—the smoke that thunders—which was announced today on Zimbabwe national television.

The agreement signed between Maharishi University of Management and Mayor Pandya of Victoria Falls, in the presence of the distinguished Zimbabwean political leader Senator Patel, calls for the construction of a magnificent building some 160 meters in height, which will overlook Victoria Falls. The building will be constructed according to the principles of Maharishi Sthapatya Veda—Vedic architecture in accord with Natural Law. The building will be positioned for the best view of the Victoria Falls, with a revolving observation platform on top. A monorail starting at the new building will cross the Zambezi River where it still is flowing quietly, and then cross again near the thundering dynamism of Victoria Falls itself.

In this building will be Maharishi Vedic University, offering courses in the Total Knowledge of Natural Law, and classes in management, agriculture and tourism. Experts in the ancient Vedic technologies of peace will also come from India to reside there, and make this building the home of perpetual peace, and a place where leaders of all nations will peacefully gather in sight of the marvelous Victoria Falls, which are a wonder of the world. It will be a place of a unifying character for the entire world to focus on one point—one place of peace for the whole human race. Jumbo-jet loads of people will fly there from all over the world, drawn by the natural beauty and power of the Victoria Falls, and by this new Vedic building of complete knowledge, perpetual peace and world unity.

Celebrating the Dawn of a New World Order

So with all this good news of today, especially with four nations having been identified as embodying the cardinal qualities of an ideal state, Maharishi University of Management in Holland is celebrating the dawn of a New World Order of Peace. We celebrate the rise of perfection in World Politics and Economy, and the rise of perpetual peace and unity in the world family. It is truly an historic day of great celebration for the world.

This celebration is the first step of achievement of Maharishi’s Global Administration through Natural Law, whose constitution is the Constitution of the Universe, Rik Veda, and which today rings the bell of Eureka for a better fortune for all mankind.
