Science of Being and Art of Living: Transcendental Meditation
by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
The Vedic knowledge of India has been the source of insight, inspiration, and enlightenment for countless generations. Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s Science of Being and Art of Living: Transcendental Meditation is the modern expression of this timeless wisdom, presented with exceptional clarity, precision, and depth.
Here, Maharishi introduces the simple, natural, and effortless Transcendental Meditation technique, which is the “technology of consciousness” for directly experiencing the field of Being, the transcendental field of existence, the inner Self of everyone. Through the Transcendental Meditation technique any individual can easily harness the unlimited treasures of this field of Being—infinite happiness, energy, creativity, intelligence, and organizing power—bringing maximum success and fulfillment to daily life.
The experiences of fulfilling personal growth of more than six million people, along with the results of more than 650 scientific research studies, show that the Transcendental Meditation program: • Reduces stress and anxiety while increasing energy and vitality • Improves health, lowers high blood pressure, and promotes reversal of aging • Increases memory, creativity, and intelligence • Enriches and strengthens personal relationships • Expands the mind to its unlimited cosmic potential • Develops inner contentment, happiness, and fulfillment—characteristics of the state of enlightenment • Creates peace and harmony in individual and collective consciousness—the basis of world peace.
In this book, Maharishi unfolds his vision for bringing perfection to everyone’s life. The Transcendental Meditation program, he says “will usher in a new era for a new humanity developed in all the values of life—physical, mental, material and spiritual.”
This edition for the first time has a self contained index, making this edition a practical reference book without the need for an external concordance. It also includes updated appendices and Dr. Bevan Morris' updated and expanded Afterword, the Sequential Unfoldment of Maharishi's Teaching.
