Maharishi & Me: Seeking Enlightenment With The Beatles' Guru
Maharishi died in 2008 at the age of 90, but his influence continues throughout the Western World as a result of the spiritual movement he founded: TM (Transcendental Meditation). Other books have been written about the guru, but this one offers an insider’s view of life and learning in Rishikesh - including the time when the Beatles came to learn at the feet of Maharishi - as well as behind-the-scene stories and photos of celebrity disciples. The author lived in the spiritual leader's ashrams for 22 years, and served on his personal staff for six of those years.
Susan shares: “Merely by being in his presence, we disciples entered an utterly timeless place and rapturous feeling, and, at the same time, realized the utter futility and insanity of the mundane world.”
Susan grew from a painfully shy teenage seeker into a spiritually aware teacher and author in her own right. Maharishi & Me is an honest and dynamic expose about an imperfect person and his dysfunctional organization. Neither starry-eyed nor antagonistic, Maharishi & Me captures, from a balanced viewpoint, the genuine essence of what it’s like to live in an ashram.
Susan Shumsky is a spiritual self-help author with more than a dozen books in print, including Divine Revelation, Exploring Meditation, and Color Your Chakras. For 22 years, she was in the tutelage of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, in India and elsewhere. She lives in Portland, Oregon.
