Today, I read on the passing away of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi the founding Guru of Transcendental Meditation. He was at the Hague and was 91 when dead. Right from the fifties, he had great following from the east and the west and his celebrity disciples included the Beatles.
These words are inspiring indeed!
In 1978, as a young man of 23, after my post graduation, far away in Delhi, I had just joined as a PO with a Bank. I was into bit of serious reading and the thoughts of existentialism and spirituality had taken roots in the mind. Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche was a favourite, though I was rather a novice.
Later in life, I have had the good fortune of meeting some great spiritual masters. I was also blessed to get my guru, a fully realized soul, who found the ultimate truth. He was a doctorate holder from Rutgers State University, USA and who later worked with IBM before embracing Sanyas. He leads his spiritual life in a secluded Ashram in India. Though, ignorant, rather irregular and known for my indiscipline in spiritual matters, I believe, I get the blessings from him and those closely known to me.
One day, I shall certainly begin in earnest about my meditation lessons.
