Conversations with Maharishi:
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi Speaks about Full
Development of Human Consciousness, Volume I
Dr. Vernon Katz
In this long-awaited book—more than 40 years in the making—readers can join Dr. Vernon Katz as he sits with Maharishi, and listen in on these exhilarating conversations about the highest potential of human life.
The majestic panoramas of Lake Tahoe in California and the Kashmir Valley in the Himalayas provided the ideal settings for the conversations in this book. It was there in 1968 and 1969 that Maharishi Mahesh Yogi began his as-yet-unpublished commentary on the Brahma Sutra, a key text of the timeless wisdom of Vedanta. The penetrating questions asked by Dr. Katz inspired deep insights from Maharishi on the nature and development of higher states of consciousness. Through Maharishi's words, the ultimate reality of life becomes meaningful and practical for people living today: anyone can awaken the wholeness of consciousness within. These conversations are suffused with bliss and serve as a tribute to Maharishi's legacy of knowledge for full development of the human heart and mind.
Maharishi: People will enjoy this book. They will enjoy your insight.
VK: I haven't any insight. It's your wisdom they will enjoy, and they will enjoy it all the more when set against my ignorance.
Maharishi: See what insight you have!
''Dr. Vernon Katz brought such huge delight to Maharishi. His powerful and highly discriminating intellect and his repeated enquiries to Maharishi inspired Maharishi so much. Maharishi in conversation with Dr Katz brought out wave upon wave of the highest knowledge to satisfy Vernon's thirst to understand fully the Brahm Vidya [knowledge of Brahm, Totality] that Maharishi was expounding to the world. . . . Vernon's role has been a singular one in the history of Maharishi's unfoldment of Total Knowledge from the Vedic tradition. We are all grateful to him for sharing his fascinating conversations with Maharishi in this book.'' — Dr. Bevan Morris, Prime Minister Global Country of World Peace, President Maharishi University of Management
