Bob Roth, CEO of the David Lynch Foundation, joins Mario Orsatti to discuss a seminal 1971 talk by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on July 4th in Amherst, Massachusetts. Maharishi answers questions from students about the evolution of higher states of consciousness and the distinct characteristics of each higher state.
Maharishi, the Founder of the Transcendental Meditation program, brought the TM technique from India to the West in 1959. Since then, more than 10 million people of all ages, cultures, and religions have learned the technique.
In 1963, Maharishi recorded the book Science of Being and Art of Living, which was transcribed and published in 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.
This special episode of TM Talks was broadcast on May 15, 2021, as part of “Taste of Utopia 2.0: Globally Transcending Together.” During this weekend of online events, thousands of TM Meditators around the world participated in group meditations, inspiring talks, and yoga classes, to help create waves of coherence from time zone to time zone. This episode was rebroadcast on August 27, 2023.
