    Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
    Speaks about Full Development
    of Human Consciousness

    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    It was there in 1968 and 1969 that Maharishi began his as-yet-unpublished commentary on the Brahma Sutra, a key text of the timeless wisdom of Vedanta.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 sweet and lovable nature was one thing-but his powerful
    and highly discriminating intellect and his repeated enquiries
    to Maharishi inspired Maharishi so much. Maharishi in
    conversation with Vernon brought out wave upon wave of
    the highest knowledge to satisfy Vernon’s thirst to understand
    fully the Brahm Vidya that Maharishi was expounding to the
    world. And Maharishi loved him for it. 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 what he has done for all of us, and 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


    “In this long-awaited book, we join Dr. Vernon Katz as he sits by Maharishi’s side,
    and we listen in on these exhilarating conversations about the highest potential of
    human life. We are on the scene as Maharishi brings to light the precious knowledge
    of enlightenment in its original purity and completeness. This book presents a clear
    exposition of this timeless wisdom along with the delight of being with Maharishi
    personally, in itself a treasure.” – Dr. Craig Pearson, author, The Complete Book of
    Yogic Flying and The Supreme Awakening (in press)
