My Maharishi - Who Was Maharishi Mahesh Yogi?

Continuing the occasional series of My Maharishi episodes, Thom gives us a few very brief highlights of a truly accomplished life.Thom shares how Maharishi was larger than life in spite of his small and gracious appearance.  He tells us how his title of “The Giggling Guru” contrasted with his ability to satisfy questions about the deepest and most serious aspects of life.Thom describes how Maharishi embodied the teachings of his own teacher, Guru Dev, and how he became a guru himself.He also shares how Maharishi first came to teach the meditation practice that we teach today, and why teachers of Vedic Meditation, before teaching a new student, always acknowledges our lineage of teachers that have come before us.It’s a short but delightful episode that will give insight into the origins of what has become a worldwide phenomenon, the practice that is raising consciousness throughout the word.Episode Highlights: [00:40] Guru - Remover of Darkness[02:32] Balletic Grace [04:12] The Giggling Guru [05:51] Learning by Osmosis[07:25] A Body as an Agent of Evolutionary Change [08:38] Big, Important and Urgent [09:30] Rameswaram [11:00] The Grace of Guru Dev[12:19] Folded Hands Everywhere [14:00] I Want to Replicate Myself [15:24] Knowledge That Has Stood the Test of Time [16:30] He Made Me Useful Links: info@thomknoles.com https://thomknoles.com/https://www.instagram.com/thethomknoles/https://www.facebook.com/thethomknoleshttps://www.youtube.com/c/thomknoles https://thomknoles.com/ask-thom-anything/
