In this popular talk from 1970, TM Founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi discusses how each of us, through our Transcendental Meditation practice, is gaining the ability to live life with our full potential of intelligence, creativity, and a refined vision of the nature of reality. He describes how our twice-daily TM practice with balanced activity helps us grow to higher states of consciousness, creating the foundation for living in Unity Consciousness.
Gerry Geer, Assistant Professor of Literature and Writing at Maharishi International University (MIU), joins TM Talks host Mario Orsatti, Senior Teacher of the David Lynch Foundation Center for Health and Wellness, to discuss Maharishi’s talk.

Maharishi brought the Transcendental Meditation program from India to the West in 1959. Since then, more than 10 million people of all ages, cultures, and religions have learned the TM technique. In 1963, Maharishi published his seminal book, Science of Being and Art of Living, which was translated into 15 languages. His second book, published in 1967, was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Bhagavad-Gita: A New Translation and Commentary. He wrote many more books and circled the world numerous times, speaking with world leaders and lecturing widely.
Maharishi also inspired a scientific quest for enlightenment. Over 700 published studies on the TM technique have demonstrated its far-reaching benefits—better health and longer life, greater intelligence and creativity, more fulfilling relationships and work success, reduced societal stress, and effortless creation of peace.
Professor Geer has been an MIU faculty member for over 30 years and has taught the Higher States of Consciousness course for the past 25 years to over 1,800 students.
In addition to his teaching responsibilities at MIU, he is director of publications at the University’s Institute of Science, Technology, and Public Policy and international liaison for the Global Union of Scientists for Peace. In these roles, he works closely with University President Dr. John Hagelin and other faculty on a wide variety of writing and organizational projects, especially those aimed at informing top scientists and governmental leaders about the positive societal impact of large peace-creating groups of meditating experts.
This TM Talks aired on March 13, 2022.
