Helena and Roland Olson, describe in charming and intimate detail those early days as this holy man from India became a part of the daily life of a typical American family and how he began to teach his simple technique of Transcendental Meditation (TM) to friends and family in their own living room. Forty years later, TM is a household name throughout the world, universally recognized as an effective means to remove stress and develop human potential. Maharishi’s educational programs are taught via satellite TV to people in every country and the Transcendental Meditation technique is practiced by millions of people from all walks of life. The present edition has been updated by the authors’ daughter, Theresa, with personal footnotes and the latest scientific research, demonstrating how Maharishi’s original vision of creating Heaven on Earth for all mankind has become a practical reality as we begin the 21st century and how Maharishi truly is a living saint for the new millennium.
