Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
Maharishi Speaks to Students and Educators

Main Points from
Maharishi’s Lecture of 31 July 1977
Seelisberg, Switzerland

‘[The] programme for the development of higher states of consciousness is very systematic. The first stage is the experience of silence within the Self—Pure Consciousness— through Maharishi’s Transcendental Meditation Technique.

‘Through the regular practice of Transcendental Meditation, the nervous system becomes increasingly pure, and Pure Consciousness is experienced more and more clearly. On the basis of this growing experience of Pure Consciousness, the student begins the practice of Maharishi’s TM-Sidhi Programme, which makes the wholeness of consciousness active within itself.

‘Through the TM-Sidhi Programme the student begins to experience and understand that a level of unmanifest activity exists within the Self. When the student functions from this level all desires are fulfilled by mere intention.

‘The final stage in the growth of higher states of consciousness is to experience that activity and silence are one. This is Unity Consciousness, the highest level of enlightenment, in which all values of life are unified as a single WHOLENESS in one’s awareness.’
