Then I got lucky. A friend gave me a copy of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's translation of the Gita. Wow! What an exhilarating experience it was to encounter the clear and simple expressions of truth that resonated with my innermost Being, and best of all - to find that there is a simple and natural technique I can practice to bring these truths into the mainstream of my daily life. I am deeply grateful to have found this masterpiece of literature, translated and commented on by someone who obviously a great master of human development - someone who has scaled the heights of human consciousness himself and can illuminate each step of the way for those of us who long to live and give the fullness that life has to offer.
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the teacher who brought the Transcendental Meditation technique to the world, has a few things to say about this work. He finds deep and profound meaning in it, and carefully and systematically brings then out in his unique and ground-breaking commentary.
We learn that the knowledge Lord Krishna imparts to Arjuna includes the technique for transcending, also know as Transcendental Meditation. We learn that this technique has been misunderstood over and over again in many different religions and philosophies, especially after the great teachers and saints who started those traditions were no longer around to maintain the purity and simplicity of the technique.
I read from this book every week and have never even considered I could exhaust it's depth. I know nothing about the Maharishis organization, but I do know quality translations when I read them. Get this book and DO what it says. You'll never be the same.
I found myself reading the same page over and over, like I was drilling deeper and deeper
into his view of the materials.
I only wish he had done more writings on the rest of the Gita. But for now I have Chapter 2,
verse 45 to sustain me.
