About the Book

There are many TM books written by those in the TM movement that are biased with all kinds of claims, from unbelievable health benefits to flying! This book is a very balanced account of Transcendental Meditation.

The Maharishi Mahesh Yogi leapt to prominence in the 1960s when his teaching of Transcendental Meditation (TM) and his widely-reported involvement with The Beatles and the Beach Boys provoked reactions ranging from reverence to mockery. Now Paul Mason takes us behind the scenes, drawing on scarce and previously unpublished material.

Much more than just a biography, this is a seminal enquiry into the aims and methods of the Maharishi Movement. We are taken deep into the Indian tradition of the Vedic scriptures, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.

He describes the early days of the teachings in the 1950s, through the development of a sprawling bureaucracy, to the fiasco of the attempts to enter mainstream politics with the Natural Law Party. 

About the Author

Paul Mason learned the practice of Transcendental Meditation after hitchhiking to India in 1970, when he visited the Maharishi's ashram at Rishikesh. He has maintained an abiding interest in yoga-meditation and Indian teachings. He is also a musician, composing music that integrates East and West. He has contributed to the magazine Yoga Today, and to Behind The Beatles Songs.

Book Reviews

"An honest warts-and-all account of the Indian guru who brought TM to the West... Whether Maharishi is Deity Incarnate, a brilliant teacher now well past his prime, or a Hindu monk who was swayed by capitalism, Paul Mason's biography is well-written, well-researched and well-rounded."
- I to I.

"Paul Mason, though he has practised TM himself, is no unquestioning worshipper."
- Gerald Kaufman MP, Manchester Evening News

'.... will tell you what happened with The Beatles and the Maharishi .... actually the best story ever written about this period and subject, although it's not focussed on The Beatles.'
- Beatles Unlimited Magazine

"A rational look at TM. There are many books written by those in the TM movement that are biased with all kinds of claims, from unbelievable health benefits to flying! This book is a very balanced account of Transcendental Meditation."
- Amazon.com reviewer, awarding it five stars.

"There is a moral here about how attempts to build heaven on earth all too often end up looking like business opportunities. But the Maharishi always had a winning smile"
- Mick Brown, Daily Telegraph.
