Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: The Biography

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi: The Biography of the Man Who Gave Transcendental Meditation to the World 


Paul Mason

This ground-breaking biography of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi - the ONLY one of its kind - telling the story of Maharishi and the spread of Transcendental Meditation, is now available by popular demand, in a new, revised, re-invigorated, expanded, up-to-date illustrated paperback version.

In this comprehensive biography Paul Mason describes the early days of Maharishi's teachings in the 1950s, the popularization of TM through the 1960's, the presentation of TM in specifically scientific terms, the introduction of the Science of Creative Intelligence (SCI) as well as the introduction of the lesser known aspects of the world's oldest system of healthcare - Ayurveda, and other ancient Indian sciences hitherto almost unheard of that evidently served to enhance the lives of hundreds of thousands of people, and finally the attempts to enter mainstream politics with the Natural Law Party.

Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, a very famous son of India, leapt to prominence in the 1960s when his teaching of Transcendental Meditation (TM) and his widely-reported involvement with The Beatles and the Beach Boys provoked reactions from reverence to awe as a singular Indian monk from the Himalayas took the world by storm, having arrived on Western shores with nothing but good intentions. Painstakingly researched, and objectively presented, Paul Mason takes us behind the scenes, drawing on scarce and previously unpublished material.

Much more than just a biography, this is a seminal enquiry that draws readers into a more meaningful understanding of their own lives through a deeper look into the aims and methods of Maharishi's organisations. We are taken deep into the Indian tradition of the Vedic scriptures, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. This work is also a celebration of Maharishi's life and his initiative to share his very original style of thinking, offering fresh perspectives on age-old themes, and massive optimism for progress and happiness.
It is thought that this completely refreshed account of Maharishi's life will be of great interest to all readers, meditators and non-meditators alike.
