In Stock Overview This penetrating literary-journalistic memoir depicts the clash between promise and reality within the movement that virtually defined alternative spirituality in America: Transcendental Meditation and its iconic guru, the Maharishi. Be the first. That said, the achievements highlighted by the introduction and embodied in these lectures suggest a sage-like stature unparalleled in the field of human knowledge. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi is on a world odyssey. But he also experienced disturbing changes in a spiritual organization that - while attracting money, celebrity, and clout - had seemingly drifted from its early ideals.

    Hundreds of people immediately asked to learn TM. When I left, it was for the usual reasons. The institution reports that it has trained 50, pundits in traditional Vedic recitation. For a while we were worried Geoff was going to start drinking the Kool-Aid himself again, but his somewhat suffering wife seems to be just the anchor he needs to get in, figure it out and get out: [Geoff] said, "But it seemed as real as anything. Then I went back. Also, advanced courses supplement the TM technique and include an advanced meditation program called the TM-Sidhi program.

The Maharishi Effect book

Then immediately it becomes concrete on a thought. For this reason, groups of individuals can create very powerful effects in the environment through their collective practice of the Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program—through their self-referral practice, they enliven every aspect of the universe by stimulating its most fundamental constituent, consciousness, and they especially enliven the collective consciousness of the city or province or nation in which they are located.

I spent five years in the Movement, from toas a hanger-on, volunteer, and student at Maharishi International University. Publisher description Abstract: "Like hundreds of thousands of young people, Geoff Gilpin entered the Transcendental Meditation movement in the early seventies, when its guru, the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, was fresh in the public mind as the spiritual guide to the Beatles and the man who made "meditation" a household word.

Two decades later, wistful over the past and concerned by the increasingly harsh tone of the Maharishi's public pronouncements, Gilpin decided to return and find out what had become of the spiritual community of his youth.

The TM movement also operates a worldwide network of Transcendental Meditation teaching centers, schools, universities, health centers, herbal supplements, solar panel, and home financing companies, plus several TM-centered communities. On the basis of this same principle, the direct experience of self-referral consciousness influences every aspect of the universe, enlivening it with the perfect order and harmony inherent within self-referral consciousness.

Asked if he forgave the Beatles, the Maharishi replied, "I could never be upset with angels.

The Maharishi Effect is the phenomenon of the rise of coherence in the collective consciousness of any community.

In later years, the Maharishi rarely left his two-room quarters in order to preserve his health and energy.

This higher value of collective consciousness in turn affects, in a positive way, every one of the individual members of that level of collective consciousness. Birth[ edit ] Maharishi Mahesh Yogi belonged to the Kayastha caste, a subcast of scribes and administrators, of the Hindu religion.

The institution reports that it has trained 50, pundits in traditional Vedic recitation. The phenomenon of collective consciousness can best be understood by examining the concept of a field, as described The Maharishi Effect book modern science. The movement's Iowa campus was a center of spiritual idealism and healthy living.

Gilpin left after five years, settling into a successful career in the software business. This new city requires that the construction of its homes and buildings be done according to the Maharishi Sthapatya Veda principles of "harmony with nature". His move back to Fairfield, Iowa, proved both revealing and unsettling.

He made his last visit to the Spiritual Regeneration Movement centre in Los Angeles inaccording to film director David Lynchwho met him for the first time there.
