   schema:description ""Susan Shumsky... was one of only a handful of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s personal attendants and administrators in India, Switzerland, and elsewhere. Following the teachings of Maharishi displaced Susan’s devotion to the hippie lifestyle, as she learned about meditation and awakened her higher self. Maharishi died in 2008 at the age of ninety, but his influence continues throughout the western world as a result of the spiritual movement he founded: TM (Transcendental Meditation). Other books have been written about the guru, but this one offers an insider’s view of life and learning in Rishikesh - including the time when the Beatles came to learn at the feet of Maharishi - as well as behind-the-scenes stories and photos of celebrity disciples. The author lived in the spiritual leader's ashrams for twenty-two years, and served on his personal staff for six of those years. Susan shares: “Merely by being in his presence, we disciples entered an utterly timeless place and rapturous feeling, and, at the same time, realized the utter futility and insanity of the mundane world.”..."--Publisher description."@en ;
