On every Guru Purnima Day, Maharishi always recalled the greatness of his teacher, Guru Dev

July 31, 2015

On every Guru Purnima Day, Maharishi always recalled the greatness of his teacher, Guru Dev. Read that beautiful, profound, inspiring description in Our Guiding Light, quoted in His Holiness Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, Thirty Years Around the World—Dawn of the Age of Enlightenment (Vol.1, 1986).

See this article on the TM Home website: Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, meditation teacher. See posts on this blog about Maharishi Mahesh Yogi. Jai Guru Dev

In this special video, recorded July 8, 1971, on a Thursday, the Day of the Guru, also during that special Full Moon of the year, Guru Purnima Day, Maharishi celebrated this special Day of the Master describing how he first met Guru Dev and came to serve him.

In this 1961 audiotape recorded on Guru Purnima, Maharishi spoke about the exceptional life of Guru Dev, Swami Brahmananda Saraswati, as a young boy in the ashram of his master Swami Krishnananda Saraswati.

In this video taped April 9, 1972, Maharishi talks about Guru Dev, and the history of the TM movement, how it innocently started in India, then spread to Europe and America. The first 4.30 minutes includes the silent movie of Guru Dev.

Listen to Peter Wallace’s story of how he met Maharishi.
