Donovan has been both practitioner and promoter of Transcendental Meditation for the past 50 years; he claims to have introduced the Beatles to India. He believes that his study of TM has informed his music in profound ways.
There is a lot of fun to be had in listening to Donovan's latest greatest hits offering, Donovan: Retrospective, released to mark his 50th anniversary in music. Though essentially a facsimile of his many and varied hits collections over the years, his songs remain sublimely evocative of the era from which they sprang. "Epistle to Dippy", for example, could only ever be the product of a man who smoked cannabis in order to throw open the doors of p...

International Yoga Day a result of largest knowledge-based people's movement: Modi
The Prime Minister also stressed on the benefits of yoga to the environment. "Global warming threatens the world as we know it. Ecology is being threatened by human greed and excesses. Yoga shows the way to consumption that is balanced and in tune with nature," he said.
"We will need to raise a generation that lives according to this balance," he said.
"The spread of yoga is a symbol of a changing world...Yoga is now a universal culture. It represents a world where knowledge grows without restrictions or boundaries...It is important to maintain an open world free of discrimination," he said.
Modi also said that the Yoga Day was the result of the largest people's movement. "International Yoga Day is not a brainchild of any government or the United Nations.. It is the result of the largest knowledge-based people's movement," he said.

Yoga a way to read 'user manual' given by the Almighty:
 PM Modi
On a lighter note, the Prime Minister also said that people often buy mobile phones but never read the user manuals given along with them. "Similarly, even we don't know what the Almighty has given us. We have not read the user manual given to us by the Almighty," he said, adding that yoga was a way to read that "user manual".

Introduction

An Introduction

Swami Shailendra Saraswati was born in a family of diverse cultural influences. His grandfather was a Vedic scholar while his father was an officer in the British Indian Army. From childhood, he was exposed to both, the oriental and the occidental world views. Unable to reconcile between the two, he decided to follow the reliable path of science to find answers to the ultimate questions of life and the universe. Physics became his religion.

Education

Though selected for admission to IIT’s with an all India rank of 106, he decided to pursue pure science as a national science talent scholar with scholarship from NCERT. After completing B.Sc. honors in Physics from Delhi University, he chose elementary Particle Physics as his specialization in M.Sc. It was then that he started to realize that at the quantum level of reality, it will become necessary to understand consciousness as the source course and goal of the physical universe which was not possible by purely objective physical means used in Physics of that time.

Disillusioned with objective science, his attention briefly turned to the surface world of poverty and mismanagement in all spheres of life and as a consequence he started to study management .After completing PGDM from IIM Ahmedabad, and working in public and private sectors for a few years, he again realized the futility of trying to change the world at a superficial level.


Journey So far ..

In order to search for a real solution to the world’s problems, and to find the true purpose of life, he embarked on a Chautauqua- an introspective journey within, while at the same time traveling in India and then in western Europe on a bicycle for about a year.

His search ended with learning Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation (TM) at a forest academy in Finland. He was not yet ready to take a hasty decision or to abandon his natural skepticism about hazy metaphysical and pseudo-religious approaches based on blind faith which he had come across repeatedly till then. Believing that in order to be reliable, any knowledge must be verifiable by both approaches –objective as well as subjective, he got into a routine of long meditations interspersed with a rigorous critical examination of the methodology used for the published scientific research studies on TM. However after thorough examination from all angles he was forced to come to the conclusion that TM is in fact the panacea capable of creating a utopia. Convinced of TM’s potential to solve all problems of an individual and the world, he decided to dedicate his life to the practice and propagation of TM.

Natural support came when His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi chose him to accompany him on his repeated world tours and for more than 25years since then, he enjoyed the good fortune of close personal guidance from Maharishi ji in his spiritual pursuits. Surrendering his will to Maharishi’s commands, he served his world wide movement in different capacities.

After serving as founding principal of Maharishi College of Management at Nairobi, Kenya and Dean of faculty at Maharishi International University at Oslo, Norway he taught Managerial Statistics and Physics at Maharishi University of Management at Fairfield, Iowa, USA. While teaching Physics, he became convinced that the Unified Field of all the laws of nature which according to Physics is the source of all matter, energy and intelligence in the universe, is nothing but the field of consciousness itself, the ultimate field of subjectivity and that it is this which is experienced through TM and utilized to produce any desired effect through the TM Sidhi program. Having been convinced of the all powerful nature of consciousness based Vedic technologies, the question remained as to why India with all her Vedic knowledge was in a state of affairs as it is. It remained to find out the misunderstanding which caused the Vedic literature to be misinterpreted. This required a deep study of the whole of Vedic literature in original Sanskrit.He studied the forty aspects of Vedic literature and finally, corroborated his studies with direct personal experience of the Vedic teachings by doing sadhana under Maharishi’s guidance in the forests of Amarkantak, the source of Narmada River in the Vindhyachal Mountains for eight years.

After Maharishi Mahesh Yogi left his mortal coil, Swami Shailendra Saraswati has decided to continue Maharishi’s work in the world by teaching TM and the advanced techniques of TM Sidhis.
