The article features excerpts from an interview with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in June 1968, at Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada, conducted by Canadian Broadcasting Corp. (CBC) Television. The article links to a video post that includes Maharishi's complete talk.
Maharishi refers to Lake Louise, renowned as Canada's most beautiful lake, in describing the nature of the mind. He explains that with the Transcendental Meditation Technique the conscious mind goes deep within and becomes saturated with great happiness, energy, and intelligence.
'The depth of the lake and the ripples, and the beautiful reflection of the glacier, reminds me of the story of inner life,' Maharishi said.
'The mind is deep like a lake. The ripples on the surface represent the conscious mind, the activity of the mind on the surface. And the whole depth of the lake is silent. And that is the subconscious mind, which is not used by the wave. But if the wave could deepen and incorporate more silent levels of the water, the waves could become the waves of the ocean, the mighty waves.
'This is what happens in Transcendental Meditation. The surface activity of the conscious mind deepens and incorporates within its fold the depth of the subconscious. And with practice, nothing remains subconscious. The whole subconscious becomes conscious, and a man starts using full potential of the mind.'
