During his 10 visits to Canada over 50 years, Maharishi Mahesh Yogi wrote several books.
In 1963, during his second visit to Canada, Maharishi worked on two books: Science of Being and Art of Living and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi on the Bhagavad-Gita—A New Translation and Commentary, Chapters 1-6.
When he spoke of his commentary on the Bhagavad-Gita several years later, Maharishi explained that 'the passage of time had blurred the original meaning of the old version,' said a Transcendental Meditation teacher from Canada.
'Maharishi said that real renunciation is not making an effort to withdraw from life, but it is rather a loftier level of life which comes with the infusion of Being [Transcendental Consciousness, experienced during the practice of Transcendental Meditation].'
The books were written in part while Maharishi was leading an in-residence course in Parksville, British Columbia, attended by nearly 120 people who practised the Transcendental Meditation Programme.
