108 line poem for Maharishi (April 5, 2002)

This poem was written in honor of Maharishi on April 5, 2002, in Fairfield, Iowa, as a token of appreciation for all the gifts of knowledge and love He gave us and brought to the world; and for the few but meaningful comments He said about me while working on a project with a buddy in 2001. Maharishi’s upliftment, humor, care and concern for my welfare were beyond anything I would have imagined. This poem was printed out and placed on His desk by a friend in Holland but I don’t know if He ever saw or heard it. Some things have changed, like the Pandits now forming at the Brahmasthan of India. But I am posting it as it was written, in memory of my having learned TM 43 years ago on September 30, 1967, in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. I met Maharishi in person for the first time 9 months later at Lake Louise, a most memorable occasion captured beautifully in the CBC TV documentary, Maharishi at Lake Louise, posted on this blog. Several other interactions occurred between Maharishi and my family, all governors, throughout our lives—precious moments to last a lifetime.
